Most Helpful Positive Review could be slightly perfected but i will still buy
I received both pioneer and lover for free to review from influenster and this is what I have to say about them..
Packaging: sleek and simple , love the wand you can be precise and also the hole in the center packs extra for main filling. The wand gives you good control.
The color of PIONEER is like that of a red rose to me and i love that i can see the violet undertones.. i will definitely be purchasing patriot again and some of the more deeper shades.
LOVER is subtle and pretty , it has a nice color and isn't too bright or too dark for my skin type, good pink.
Both LOVER AND PIONEER have a matte finish as advertised.
Advise: You only need to apply once, i don't recommend applying twice
the texture is a little sticky but not so much that i can't handle it.
I have ate burgers with these lipsticks and they hold up great.
only time i noticed a good difference is when i ate an overly greasy pizza
The lippies are removed with oil, i personally choose coconut oil and it does it's job, i would say don't skimp out on your oil, use a good amount and removing it shouldn't be a problem.
Cons/ It could be a tiny bit less tacky and i'm sure if they had more of a selection of shades they would be even more popular.
I am excited to try more of the deeper shades soon :)
Most Helpful Critical Review Thanks for the unwanted tattoo Matte ink
I brought 2 of these today and the colors are amazing, but this product is a nightmare. It stain my lip. It took was to much make up remove to get off. If it's gonna take more than 10minutes to take off I rather buy a lipstick I have to reapply every hour. Don't wanna worry about the product being stuck on my lips.

MY ABSOLUTE FAV
Different Experience with Different Shades
Casey from Washington, DC
This lipstick is totally different in different shades! I first purchased the color Founder, and I am completely obsessed with it - it goes on smoothly, the coverage is excellent and super even, the color is flattering, and it stays in place all day. I only have to do minimal reapplication after eating, and I don't even always have to do that! I've seen some reviews complain that it's sticky, and it is when you very first apply it, but it very quickly dries down to matte. It is a little difficult to remove, but not so much so that it's a problem, and I don't mind it being a little difficult to take off if that means it will stay on all day.
I love it and have been wearing it almost daily since I purchased it, and I wanted more shades!
So I purchased Believer, and it's a totally different experience. The color is extremely splotchy and uneven, clumps throughout the day, fades unevenly and easily, and bleeds off my lips so that I have a weird bright pink halo around my lips that otherwise have a dark lipstick shade. It's terrible.
I gave four stars because of how much I love the Founder shade, but if I were reviewing the Believer shade alone, I would give it no more than two stars. I was excited to expand my collection of longwear mattes, and now I'm not sure what to do - I don't trust at all that my next experience will be as good as the first.
Longweqring and affordable lipstick
Adriana from Irving, Texas
I really like the color and how long lasting it is. The only downside to it is that you have to exfoliate you lips and hydrate them before you apply it or else it makes your lips look dry, but I think you have to do this with any liquid lipstick.
Jess from Pekin, Indiana
This is by far my favorite "staying" lipstick ever. Does not make my lips feel dry. It really stays on. I own about 10 of these and use them daily!
Can't believe how well it worked
Khaag14 from Kansas
I was pretty skeptical of the staying power since it's a drugstore lipstick, but this stuff is incredible! I got the color voyager to try out for my wedding and it has great pigment without being streaky. This stuff lasted 8 hours through eating, drinking, and kissing and the only wear I could see was the very inside of my lips. Definitely get an oil based makeup remover to make it easier to remove, micellar water worked but took some scrubbing. I love how with all of that staying power it didn't stain my lips or skin! I want to get all of the colors, such a holy grail product
Flaky and Sticky, but it gets the job done?
Diana from VA
I wish I had better things to say about this :,( . I got this in the shade "Explorer", which is the deep midnight blue. I needed a blue lip for a play I'm in, and I typically use cream makeup/regular lipstick for that. However, with time constraints, I had to buy in person- this was the only good base I could find. It has a nice, deep color, but it feels HORRIBLY sticky on my lips. It flakes off super quickly, can't eat or drink with it. I think the best way to keep it smooth would be to have extra moisturized lips (maybe with Vaseline), but that would cause it to rub off somewhat, so I'm at a loss. It takes topper eyeshadow surprisingly well (used a discount Colourpop Super Shock single.) I wouldn't recommend this for all-day wear. My acting/filming hours are maybe 3, 4 hours max, so it's fine for then, but be wary if you're looking for a smooth, long-lasting lippie.
Q from Tn
once you figure out how to apply it....its great! Plus it stays on all day. It's Awesome....& Im new to this Makeup world....lol
Kay from Lol
It's sticky that's true, but it will not leave your lips you don't have to touch it up or anything so I love it and often mix it with other lip colors to get rid of the stickiness.
Stays on all day, no need to reapply
Laney from Texas
Excellent product, stays on the entire day! Doesn't dry out your lips, (I just add a little lip oil during the day) not flaky or drying or gross looking. Smooth lips, deep color and feels lightweight. Highly recommend!!!
Rosa33 from Royal Oak
When these first came out I remember them being so good,but it's a NO go now! Apart from nice color options, it's so sticky and takes sooooo long to dry down. When it finally does set, it becomes a flaky patchy mess. I won't buy these again us the formula is redone!
Sticky and stains
Nik from Chicago
This is one of the stickiest matte lipsticks I ever used and I hate that. I won't wear lipgloss because I hate the stickiness so this really bothered me. I was able to make it work by blotting and a little powder. It was also really hard to get off. Wouldn't buy this again
The Best Matte You Can Get!
Nicole32 from Pittsburgh, PA
I've tried all kinds of drugstore and high end matte lipsticks, and none of them are as great as this! The SuperStay Matte Ink is incredibly pigmented and only needs one swipe to cover all of your lips. As for how it wears, it is probably the most comfortable matte and liquid lip I have ever used. Not very drying at all. It also lasted through tons of eating and drinking, I NEVER had to reapply! It definitely does take a lot more effort than the average lipstick to take off, but I will take that over tons of reapplying. I will definitely keep buying this!
MatureMakeUpLover from NY
This is the only matte lipstick I've tried that does not dry out my lips, and it stays.... oh boy, does it stay!!!
I am a smoker with pretty awful lip lines and this product does not feather.... I don't use lip liner any more either! If you play with the wand and apply correctly, this does it all, lines and fills all in one. I have occasionally applied a lip balm over it if I'm in a dry atmosphere, it still stays on just fine.
I see some folk saying it's sticky, I have not found this to be the case.... once it dries, it's set for the day!
I am definitely looking forward to trying more colors!
Photo (if it uploads) is after 7 hours of wearing, drinking hot and cold drinks. Rushed application this morning, I usually manage more even shaping 😂
Nervous to use
Mrs.Lopez from Rosamond,Ca
I bought this with the shade "pathfinder"... pathfinder is lighter than expected, so I'm questioning this shade...
Love love love this product!!!!
Tyork from Tennessee
Love this product! Most liquid lipsticks make my lips super dry and caky like. This one applies smoothly like silk, stays all day, and my lips are NOT dry! I don't even feel like I'm wearing anything on my lips! Definitely a 5 star product
Really stays on, very little transfer even with a mask
Mrs. Lopez from Rosamond, CA
Tiktok suggested it so I gave it a try... the only disappointment was the shade, it's lighter that I expected but still cute
Maybeline 24 hr matte lipstick
Elise from Coral Springs Florida
I love this lipstick!! It really does stay on 24 hours. I'll keep buying it
Great color awful formula
Heather from Mantua, NJ
This color (originator) was a lovely dark purple and I adore the shade but the formula was so uncomfortable and sticky! I wound up returning it.
Love this product
Ruru from Massillon
Love this lipstick would definitely buy again
forever my go-to matte lipstick
Marylyn from Chicago, IL
The perfect matte lipstick. It stays on THE WHOLE DAY!! Won't rub off while wearing a face mask & won't come off when you eat. Just don't put too much of it on or it'll feel really cakey & sticky
If you're looking for a sign, this is it
Trying to love it
Kgp from Tucson
Ok, I've been on the hunt for transfer-proof lipsticks. I wanted a red lipstick so I bought Dancer. The color is great, however, it is patchy. I went over it with a second layer and the same thing happened. It was a bit disappointing. I've tried other colors that worked out fine.
Works better than the rest
Anna from Washington
I've been spending $20+ on TooFaced Melted Matte for a couple years for what? This stuff goes on smoother and literally does not come off. I could apply this at 9am and it will still be there the next morning if I fall asleep without taking my makeup off. Plus it doesn't make your lips look dried out the way other mattes do. Oh, and NO MASK TRANSFER. I'm only buying this from now on. Do yourself a favor and spend less but get way more.
Best lipstick ever
Jennifer from Camarillo
Color is perfect and there are so many to choose from. I don't even really need to reapply it even after I eat
Full coverage but tacky
Amie from WA
Full coverage no gaps
Carolyn from michigan
I got this in two colors. I've only tried seductress so far but wow. the applicator is amazing because of the shape. it helps you apply fully and line. stayed on through dinner too. plus the seductress is just a really nice color
