I have wanted to review this long time back. But better late than never:). So, here we are with this Nykaa Matte lip colors!
I really love Nykaa for bringing so many brands under one roof and making many drool worthy products available to us. With other brands, Nykaa has also been launching its own range of cosmetics and I ended up picking these three shades for my summer lip color collection.
I personally feel a nude, a brown, an orange, a red and a nice pink are five must have shades that can take care of most of occasions and looks from neutral to party wear. Now it is really a task to find a perfect orange or red or nude for different skin tones. But once we get ours, that's it!
Nykaa So Matte Lip colors:
(I have found all there claims to be true except the promise of long lasting color)
Price: 399 INR
Shelf life: 3 years
Ingredients: (click on the pic to zoom)
Nykaa lipsticks are well pigmented and even though they are matte they have enough creamy texture in them to not make them too dry or patchy on lips. They glide well even if I am not using a lip balm underneath and add a soft sheen to the lip color. These lipsticks hide my pigmentation on lips and stay put for about 4 hours. After this, they fade and leave a subtle tint on my lips which doesn't look bad. Yes, they transfer easily and have a medicine like smell which I really hate tasting! When it comes to packaging, I think they really need to work on the caps of these lipsticks as they are loose and may detach themselves from lipsticks without our permissions. This is why I usually don't keep these lipsticks in my bags but keep them in kits.
Nonetheless, I really love the Naughty Nude which is a perfect nude for my lips and Orange Vice which is a very beautiful reddish orange and has got me a lot of compliments from people. I personally don't like the Frisky Fruschia as I am aversive to pinks with strong purple tones.
Here are the swatches:
Naughty Nude is a mix of pink and brown and will suit all skin tones.
Orange Vice is an Orange with little yellow undertone but is sufficiently red. I really love this shade.I think it will look flattering on everyone! Especially fair to medium skin tones.
Frisky Fuschia is a dark bright pink. Kind of Magenta, again a shade that will suit all skin tones.
1) Lovely shades and range to choose from
2) Good pigmentation
3) is a matte but is a moisturizing matte, thus wears very comfortably on lips
4) Doesn't highlight or settle in the fine lines of lips.
5) Doesn't look patchy at any point of time.
6) Easily available
1) Doesn't last long enough.
Will I recommend it?
Yes! definitely. Naughty nude and orange vice are really worth trying!
