Nykaa Paintstix in Cool Girl Nude 02 :Review and Swatch, LOTD

by - April 28, 2017

Hello everyone,
I’m back with one of my obsession again. Yes, you guess it right! It’s a matte lipstick in nude shade and it is also from my favorite brand Nykaa.  Yes, yes I have tons of nude lipsticks and they are different in color….. okay!😜 Nykaa recently comes up with their own line of makeups which include nail polishes, lipsticks, kajal/kohl, and eye liners. All the products are good-quality, highly pigmented and affordable. Nykaa recently added new type of lipsticks in their treasure which they named Nykaa paintstix. This range carries 12 long lasting, high intensity bold and beautiful colors. As you guys know me that I’m crazy about nudes, so I picked a cool nude shade from this range. And today I’m going to review this Nykaa Paintstix in  Cool Girl Nude 02.

My review on Nykaa Paintstix in Cool Girl Nude 02:

"Nykaa Paintstix in Cool Girl Nude 02 review and swatch @throughmypinkwindow"

Packaging: The lipstick comes in Nykaa’s signature pink cardboard box. It has color coded matte cap and black body which carries the brand name at front and shade number at bottom. Relevant information is written in the box. Lipstick looks nice and sleek but I feel it is a bit flimsy in comparing to the Nykaa So Matte! Lipstick’s packaging.

Shade: As the name says it is cool tone nude- much browner. This shade appears chocolaty brown in my complexion. I think this shade would be best suited for medium to dusky skin tone- they will find it as their IMBB shade.

Pigmentation: Extremely pigmented. You need only 2 swipes to show the actual color.  It gives most opaque coverage to pigmented lips.
Texture and formula:  Texture is very smooth and creamy, glides like butter. Very similar to Nykaa So Matte lipsticks in texture wise. As it has creamy formula, doesn’t dry out the lips rather than feels comfortable throughout the day.  It neither settles down into fine lines nor accentuates dry patches. So lazybones can skip prepping lips. But the downside is it does move and transfer.

Staying power and color payoff: It stays put for almost 6 hours with little snacking in between but doesn’t survive full meal or anything oily. It leaves a strong stain behind. You have to watch out for that and reapply.

  • 12 stunning shades.
  • Bold and intense color.
  • Highly pigmented.
  • Long stay.
  • Comfortable to wear.
  • Creamy texture.
  • Doesn’t sit down to fine lines.
  • Gives opaque coverage in 2 swipes.
  • Good color pay off.


  • Packaging is a bit flimsy.
  • Does move and transfer.
  • I personally find it pricey regarding its quality.
  • Not available in local stores.

Rating: 4.5/5.

Final verdict: If you are a dusky skin beauty then I thing this shade would be your perfect IMBB shade as it has acute cool undertone, it might not be washing you out or look wired. For me it is nice break from my pinky nudes, peachy nudes or warm tone nudes. This shade is quite wearable in day time as well as night. Over all I love it’s creamy texture; long stay formula and immensely pigmented color. Highly recommend the shade and the range to give a go.

What do you feel about this shade? Do you have it or any other shade from Nykaa Paintstix?
