Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink in Escapist – #30lipsin30days

Switching it up for something a little more vampy today. Possibly inspired by the final season of The Originals being added to Netflix while I was deep in to a re-watch of The Vampire Diaries because this is not a colour I’d usually wear. I’m a real fan of this Maybelline formula, it’s thick and a little drying but it LASTS and it packs a real punch colour-wise. It’s a really solid high street option if you’re in to liquid lips but this particular shade is just too unforgiving for me.

Once it starts to wear there’s no hiding it and it doesn’t layer nicely if you need to reapply. It also isn’t easily removed on the go (or at all – otherwise part of its charm) so in this particular shade it’s a miss from me. As I said in this review of the shade ‘Lover’ it leaves behind a layer of pigment under the product itself so it lives up to it’s Ink name but the deeper shades just don’t quite hit the mark.

    The colour is very dark but it might look nice sheered out. When I wear a shade that is too bright or too vampy for me I just dab a little bit in the middle of my lip and spread it around with my finger. It stops the edges being too crisp as well, which I think makes the look more casual.
