Maybelline New York Super Stay Vinyl Ink Longwear promises no-budge liquid lip color, a highly pigmented color, and what makes it different from its previous Superstay matte lipstick is that it gives instant shine.
I got interested in purchasing this lippy when a close friend asked for a gift. When she did, it was not available in the country yet. The moment I saw it on Shopee, I added one in the shade of Witty to my cart.

I wear test it immediately. I ate gyoza for a snack, has a large cup of milk tea, and had chicken adobo and fried dim sum for dinner. Surprisingly, it stayed requiring only a very minimal retouch.
At work, I am using a tumbler with a straw but until the moment I clocked out, my straw is clean.
For ordinary facemask, the transfer is very minimal, probably because breathing and oils in the face produce moisture and can remove slight pigments. But compared to other lipstick I have worn, the transfer is around 95% lesser.
The brush is slightly angled. Unlike in the matte version where it was only straight, this one is a little twisted and I like it because it becomes easier to shape the upper lip to create an illusion of it looking fuller.
“Up to 16-hour wear”
This is highly probable when you eat less oily food as it can remove the color in the middle part of the lip.
Yes, it is shiny. For those who are not a fan of matte so much, this is a perfect choice.
How to Remove
I am using Nivea crème (blue tin can) to remove it. Or Vaseline’s original petroleum jelly. Dab a small amount to the lips, rub gently and wipe it clean with a cloth, tissue, or cotton.
Where to Buy
I bought the first one via Shopee. I have two shades upcoming as of this writing (Saucy and Unrivaled) checked out by my colleague via Watsons app (P100 less!). It is also available via Lazada and upon last visit to SM Department Store Iloilo (Watsons area) they have available shades in Coy and Red Hot.
