Nykaa which is an online shopping portal introduced their own line of nail colors a while back. It was an instant hit and they have added matte nail colors to their collection. They recently launched their matte lipsticks which took the beauty circle by storm. So today I’m going to review the new Nykaa So Matte! Lipsticks.
Nykaa So Matte! Lipsticks come in 12 shades – 6 pinks, 2 nudes, 1 orange, 1 red, 1 plum and 1 wine. As I’m a warm skin toned person, I picked up the orange shade 08 M – Orange Vice. This is a beautiful warm orange shade which will definitely compliment warm skin toned beauties.
Price & Quantity
It is priced at Rs. 399 for 4.2 gms of product.
The outer packaging of the lipstick is a cardboard box which has orange and pink ombre shades. The lipstick comes in a matte black sturdy rectangular packaging which is so classy and looks expensive. The icing on the cake is the magnetic closure which protects the lipstick from damages.
The Orange Vice shade is a beautiful warm toned orange and is highly pigmented. One swipe would do the magic. You can build the color with extra swipes according to your wish. Swipe it once or twice or daily wear and a few more swipes will be apt for parties and weddings.
The lipstick claims to be ‘so matte’ but it isn’t. This is a creamy matte lipstick which will not dry your lips and keeps it moisturized throughout the day as it is Vitamin – E enriched. As it is creamy in texture, it isn't transfer free. Blotting a tissue on the lipstick will make it matte.
The staying power of this lipstick is quite decent. I applied this lipstick and blotted with a tissue and reapplied again (like I would do for any lipstick). It stayed for 5+ hours which included having lunch and snacks too. After lunch, the shade mildly faded away but I didn’t have to reapply it.
My Final Thoughts
Nykaa has certainly done a great job in introducing high quality lipsticks at affordable prices. Considering its pigmentation and staying power, it is a good choice for daily and office wear. I wish Nykaa introduces a few more shades too. This lipstick gets a big thumbs up from me and I’d recommend to you all too.
