Most Helpful Positive Review Great, worth it!
I honestly thought I was going to hate this color. I wanted a brown color. I seen "coffee edition" and was certain they would hold no pinks. Once I first swatches this I was disappointed. It looked like a mauve color and if it's like any other mauve I've tried I knew it wasn't going to look good. I was deceived by the lighting. While it does hold some pink to it (as much as I wish it didn't) it actually looks pretty good. It's not too cool nor is it too warm. It's as the name states super stay. This is long wearing. This is long lasting. Nearly budgeproof. I have to try really hard to remove it. The applicator does have a bit of a struggle coming out of the tube but it's not awful. It happens to be thin and pointed so a precise application goes smoothly. It doesn't weigh down the lips. It has a soft matte finish that doesn't over accentuate lip lines. This is pigmented nicely so you don't have to apply it over and over, a small amount will do. It smells amazing but it's not like others where the scent is overwhelming. This dries quickly and doesn't have a need for a lip liner. It doesn't feel sticky but due to the longevity, if not properly prepared it can feel drying into the lips.
This product was sent to me by I N F L U E N S T E R for testing purposes.
Most Helpful Critical Review Love it and Hate It
I will start with the things I loved about this. The color was beautiful. The applicator has a nice shape and picked up the perfect amount of product so it applied evenly and lined up to the edges well. I applied one coat in the morning and it was still "new" looking at 6pm that night after drinking coffee all day and eating lunch. In fact taking it off was a feat in itself. You will need more then just any old makeup wipe for this. I would suggest an oil or removing balm. Now the bad.....this product never fully dries down matte or even to a cream feel. It has that weird "waiting for your liquid lipstick to dry", kind of sticky but kind of dry feeling all day. Almost tacky feeling. Alllllllllllll day. It was very annoying and will be what stops me from reaching for it regularly. It has a lot of things going for it but I wish they could do something for that weird tacky dry down.

I got the shade Chai Genius, and it smells just like a cup of chai. The color is a beautiful neutral and I've worn it a few times already. The Matte Ink formula is always great - pigmented and long lasting. Can get a bit thick, so be careful with your application. Definitely want to grab more shades from this collection.
I Have All 5 Colors
SJGN from Phoenix, AZ
These colors are sooooo beautiful if you have a neutral to warm skin tone. It layers on thick so a little goes a long way. It is moisturizing on its own, so you don't need a moisturizer to prime. I mean of course, you should have a good lip care regiment, but you don't need to lather on a thick layer of lip balm before applying this liquid lipstick. They all smell like a coffee-flavored drink ☕️ ❤️ The two darker colors are a brownish-red like burnt rust or dried blood - they are moody and great for autumn and winter.
Color is perfection
Mitz from Los Angeles
I bought Caramel Collector and it's my favorite color of all time!! I have been looking for a color like this for ages and hadn't found it. I'm light medium, warm. It really brightens my face up and makes my eyes pop! Usually only reds and darker pinks do that (is there even any other colors?). So I'm very excited! I use it as my "neutral" since all nudes tend to wash me out.
I WOULD DEFINITELY BUY THIS PRODUCT AGAIN!
Missy Tae from Wisconsin
This matte lipgloss was absolutely what I needed, ESPECIALLY during this pandemic. This gloss passed the kiss test, eat & drink test & definitely the mask wear test!
Would buy again!
Ellie from Montclair
I ordered the Chai genius and I love it! perfect light brown nude for fall. It's a matte finish. Make sure to exfoliate + moisturize your lips before.
I would buy this product again
Linda from Virginia
I really love the smell and it does really smell like coffee.
darlingangeline from Los Angeles, CA
I doubted my friends when they said they love this formula. But they were right!! I'm pretty tan but this color is a beautiful light caramel. I love the coffee smell! I definitely have to buy a backup.
I'm buying this again!

Stays on all day but makes your lips dry.
I would buy this product again
Lynn from Illinois
This product is great! The matte finish is beautiful and I love the shade range.
Stephanie from Woodstock, GA
This is a great lipstick! I loved the color and the application. I was looking for something not super pink for fall and this was great. My one con was the smell because I wasn't crazy about it when I first put it on, but after wearing it for awhile I stopped noticing it. Lasted a long time.
Perfect color for med-tan girls
Mimi from Santa Cruz ca
My favorite color is CHAI GENIUS! Honestly it's the perfect "nude" for me. I wear it with the SWEETHEART lipliner from Morphe (which ulta doesn't sell and I wish they did)
Stays on and smells like chocolate
Lupe from Chicago
Stays on and feels comfortable on the lips
I LOVE THIS STUFF!
Jessica from IN
I have multiple colors in the Super Stay Ink and love them. HOWEVER, I just bought the Stay Ink in the "Coffee" collection the color Chia Genius and it is FABULOUS! It is not as tacky as the other colors for some reason! I know a lot of people complain about this brand being tacky. It is a stunning color and I am so thankful I got it! When this comes back in stock ... order it! You won't be disappointed.
Amazing staying power
Sparrow from PA
I have this in the shades Hazelnut and Cocoa. I love them both! My skin tone is medium neutral and I think Hazelnut is a wonderful natural nude color. Cocoa is a great dark shade of brown-ish red that fits my aesthetic perfectly. I've worn both a few times now and they really do last all day. They're a bit tricky to get off, but if you have a good makeup remover you'll be fine.
If you don't like the smell of coffee I wouldn't recommend, otherwise go for it!
perfect for asian skin tones!
izzy from NY
I really love this formula in general because it's a comfortable liquid lip that lasts and these tones are so beautiful against my skin tone. They key with this formula is to not apply too much and to give it time to set to remove most of the sticky feeling. The smell of these reminds me of caramel YUM! I have hazelnut hypnotize which is a perfect nude. Touch of warmth and isn't too pale. I also have cocoa connoisseur which is a beautiful vampy brownish red that's perfect for fall. I'm gonna grab some more while it's on sale!
PS. If you have loreal infallible fresh wear I'm in the shade 420 for reference
Kristin from O'Fallon, IL
I have to say I've tried a few other shades of the maybelline super stay matte ink and never liked them because they were too dark, or too pink. Finally, they released this line and I purchased the hazelnut and I love it ! Exactly the shade I was looking for !
Beautiful color BUT
aryn003 from Woostock
The color of Chai Genius is beautiful, but this formula as well as the original is SO STICKY. I HAVE to put the lifter gloss on top to make it comfortable, which most of the time I don't mind, but I wish I could wear it by itself.
If you have brown hair and fair skin...
Melissa1986 from Anderson SC
I have fair skin and brown hair. I was trying to find a pretty nude but not too pink, something to wear into the fall and I picked up the Hazlenut color in the coffee line. It is so SO beautiful. The color brought out my eyes and complimented my skin tone and will be great to wear as the seasons change. Plus they last forever! When I want a more glossy look, I just top it with a clear gloss and it looks great. If I want the matte look, I just blot and go. But the Hazlenut color is great for fair skin! Not too brown, not too pink. Just right.
Che'Nique Rich from South Carolina
I believe it's this edition that I wasn't so happy about. This brand is amazing. I own multiple sticks and colors — simply amazing but this particular color 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽 highly disappointed. It turns white (ashy look) and wipes completely off after applying it 🤷🏽♀️
A little light
Izz from Cali
I already know I really like the superstay formula, while slightly tacky and a little thick if you apply too much it's pretty much bulletproof. You must remove it with an oil based cleanser.
I got the shade chai genius, I'm about nc44/Fenty 360 in the summer. It is a pretty neutral toned medium/light brown, but it pulls a little grey on me. I will see if it works better with a little foundation over the lips (I mean a LITTLE) to neutralize my natural lip color since it's pretty pigmented. I added a little dark brown liner in the outer corners but I think it could go without, especially in the winter.
My favorite liquid lipstick of all time
Taylor from CA
This is my go-to liquid lipstick everyday! It's very pigmented and stays on all day with no transferring. Dries down to a matte, comfortable finish.
Yummy scent & long lasting!!
Amber from Washington DC
First of all the scent is amazing! It has a yummy coffee scent! The texture and wear is very similar to the other liquid lipsticks in this line. It lasts all day without reapplication. That being said it can be a bit drying on the lips but it is nothing unbearable.
Ruu from New york
I really loved the color of this product and that it was not super drying. My fees issues are that it takes a while to dry down and remains feeling sticky for longer than normal. Also the applicator shape is not the easiest to work with. The product needs some work but there's definitely potential.
Would love to try other colors
gnavD from Fresno,CA
At first, I thought this lipstick was going to be quite drying because it's a matte lipstick. But it actually turned out to be moisturizing and also feels nice on the lips once it settles in. It does have a slightly tacky feel to it but that goes away after awhile. I love the smell and pigmentation of this lipstick and I can't wait to try out the other colors as well.
Beautiful long-lasting color!
Miriahv22 from Ohio
I loved this liquid lipstick and will definitely be purchasing from this line again! I tried the shade "hazelnut hypnotizer" and loved the color against my fair skin. It's so long-lasting and doesn't wipe off easily, which is something I look for in a lipstick because I hate constantly reapplying or worrying about how it looks. This is a new go-to for me and I would definitely recommend it!
