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
” 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
