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

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:

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.

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?
