So on Friday after a longg day at work, I came home to this pleasant surprise – and Influenster VoxBox with 2 brand new, FREE, full size Maybelline Liquid Lipsticks! Perfect timing too, because I was going out that night (I think for the first time all year so far :O).
As you can see, the lippies aren’t completely matte – they were also only applied about 30 seconds before this photo. But they do have more of a “satin” finish- which I actually prefer.
These swatches were also so hard to remove. I tried scrubbing with dishsoap and they barely smudged. I finally had to soak a cotton ball in makeup remover a few times to remove it.
This lipstick lasted me from 8PM when I put it on until 3AM (7 hours with NO re-applying) when I had to take it off (with makeup remover) before bed. I was also eating, drinking and dancing the whole night. I’m pretty sure if I had slept with it it would have still been near perfect in the morning. I am going to try and test out the 16 hour claim today and I will report back!
P.S: I think they totally smell like a cupcake.
If you guys have not joined Influenster I HIGHLY suggest it! You get free products to test in exchange for an honest review! It’s so simple and I’ve only been disappointed with a couple of products I’ve received!
You can get this lippie at Ulta for $9.49: SuperStay Matte Ink
