by - December 06, 2016

Hello Everyone,
Nykaa has launched their own line of cosmetics which have nail polishes, Matte lipsticks and very recently an eye liner. I am a very big fan of their nail enamels so, as soon as I heard that they also  have launched their own line of matte lipsticks I rush to buy one. As you guys already know that I am a nude shade lover, so I bought two shades “Naughty Nude” and “Taupe Thrill” from Nykaa so matte lipstick range. They have launched 12 shades in this range which have nudes, pinks, red, orange, plum and wine. So they provide every color option to choose from. So let’s start with the review of Nykaa so matte lipsticks in Naughty Nude and Taupe Thrill.

My Review on Nykaa so matte lipsticks Naughty Nude and Taupe Thrill:

Packaging: when it comes to packaging Nykaa introduce a very luxy thing which blows your mind for sure. It comes in a matte black plastic case on which the Brand name Nykaa has written with silvery metallic color which I think looks super classy. The black case further housed in a very elegant looking pinky cardboard box which carries all the relevant information. The best part of the packaging is that how the cap shuts! The cap has magnet in it, so it has a magnetic closure like some luxy high-end brand lipsticks. This all make the lipstick looking very elegant, classy and travel friendly as well.

Naughty Nude: It is an excellent pinky peachy nude color, more on the pink side. The color is so beautiful that anyone can carry this shade; however the skin tone is dusky, medium or fair. Shade can be worn in daily basis on collage or office as well as for night out or party.
Taupe Thrill: It a perfect nude for deeper skin tone,a lovely brown with a hint of peach. In one word it is a “Kylie Jenner” shade of course.

Pigmentation: Intensely pigmented, goes full opaque in only one swipe. It can cover up my pigmented lips totally right from the first swipe and the coverage is quite build-able as well.

Texture and formula: Though it is called matte lipstick, it is not at all flat matte; it has very nice and creamy texture which glides evenly without tugging and pulling. Thank god it has no shimmer or sheen in it. After some time it sits down into matte finish but not powdery matte, has the smoothness intact throughout. So doesn’t settle into lip lines or accentuate dry patches. Formula is very much soft like butter, so it keeps moisturizing lips for long. I think the formula is so creamy and buttery that no one needs to apply lip balm before putting it on.

Staying power and color payoff: As the lipstick is on the creamy side so it does transfer or move but stays on me for good 5+ hours with little snacks and drink in between. The color doesn’t survive oily food. After completely fading away the pigment left a beautiful stain on the lips.

Final verdict: I am ready to die for its color- such pretty nudes that has right balance in pink tone, peachiness and blown. And the packaging is so luxy and trendy in such a price tag that definitely worth a try. I think this is perhaps most comfortable, pigmented and affordable matte lipstick available in Indian market. So I would recommend specially this shade to every girl who wants to have a versatile hue to work as well as to party.
