Keanu Reeves Is My Boyfriend, Vol. 1: Maybelline Superstay Ink Crayon Lipstick

(Pretend) sweetheart approved.
This post is the first in a series of stellar drugstore gems in which my (very much pretend) sweetheart Keanu Reeves helps me test makeup… He’s gallant like that, you know? ?

I can confirm that these pigmented, matte twist-up crayons by Maybelline are kiss-proof because I made out with Keanu Reeves for 20 minutes while wearing one of them (Lead the Way), and it didn’t relocation at all!

It smelled and tasted like vanilla-spiked Hawaiian Punch, which Keanu adored, but ewww! — it made my stomach churn. My boo likes it, though, so I guess I’ll have to endure… The things I do for that man, le sigh!


So numerous colors!
Maybelline Superstay Ink Crayon Lipstick, $9.49 each

It’s available in 12 shades for less than $10 each.

The formula is practically as smooth as Keanu’s raven locks, with nary a vertical lip line in sight.

The attached sharpener (which is hidden in the base of the pen) keeps the suggestion tapered.

It’s long long lasting (from 3-4 hours), but it rapidly melts away with makeup remover.

The matte formula isn’t drying; it IS comfortable; and it doesn’t make your lips look a billion years old.

It looks expensive.

I’m an NC42 in MAC for reference.
Enjoy the View

Hidden sharpener…


Keanu likes that these are just shy of $10, because now we can save much more money to renovate our vacation home on Lake Cuomo… ? You’re invited to come and stay with us, of course!

Your friendly neighborhood charm addict,
