Forget “kiss-proof”—food-proof is the new standard of a good lipstick. While many formulas claim they’re long lasting, not many can survive lunch. They flake, fade, or straight-up disappear a few bites in.

But there’s one lipstick that’s confident enough to proclaim itself the exception. Ladies, meet the SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipsticks by Maybelline! Word has it these lippies are the very definition of long-lasting. We’re talking up to 16 hours of wear, people! With saturated matte pigments, they’re said to fight fading at all cost—even after a meal. Too good to be true? There’s only one way to find out. To put the SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipsticks to the test, we asked a few BeautyMNL girls to swipe on a shade and dig right into a chicken wing. Partly because we’re curious to see if the formula holds up, and partly because we can’t say no to some good ol’ greasy food. See the final verdict, below!

CHICKEN WING FLAVOR: Garlic Parmesan Mara in Pioneer
CHICKEN WING FLAVOR: Hickory BBQ Nisee in Escapist


Greasy bite after greasy bite, the colors on these lips did not budge. They didn’t even leave an imprint on the chicken wing! Better still, the pigment looked pretty much as fresh as it did when it was first applied. So you can bet it will hold out through just about everything—be it a oil-glazed meal or an entire day without touch-ups.

TIP: Be sure to give the lipstick 10 minutes to set before eating or drinking. Afterwards, you’re gold.
