I’ve had an assortment of plummy red lipsticks. Over time, I’ve discovered it’s one of my favorite colors of lipstick to wear. Several years ago, I made the mistake of assuming that just because a lipstick is expensive that it’s good quality.
I purchased the Smashbox Limitless Liquid Lipstick in Miss Conduct. The color was perfect, but that’s about it. The lipstick was a struggle to keep on. It was supposed to be a long lasting matte lipstick. However, it bled, got absolutely everywhere, and just turned my entire makeup look into a mess very quickly.
But then came Maybelline.
I’m a huge fan of the Super Stay line. That foundation is my favorite, and the lippies are the only one that I can be 100% sure will stay on for a long period of time.
And they created a lippie that’s the same shade as the Smashbox one! It’s the Super Stay Matte Ink in Voyager. It’s just as gorgeous and stunning, but it doesn’t bleed everywhere.
I’m not here to say it’s a perfect lipstick. Of all the shades I’ve tried, Voyager is the one that lasts the shortest amount of time. It doesn’t hold up supremely well under eating either. However, it’s the absolute best lipstick I’ve ever found in that gorgeous, dark, plummy maroon. And on top of that, it’s significantly more reasonably priced than the Smashbox lippie!
