So Nykaa launched yet another range of lipsticks and I had to get my hands on them. Unfortunately, none of the shades succeeded in winning my heart. I know there are people who are going to be super impressed with some of the quirky shades available, but I am not one of them. Since you guys might know that I’m not huge on colour cosmetics, I mean I have self control while shopping for them unlike my guiltless lust over skincare products. With summer approaching I am really looking forward to purchase some nice nude lipsticks but when I checked the range I was a bit disappointed to discover that the nude shades from these range is too dark for my skin. I know they have created the range keeping in mind our Indian skin tone, but I thought it was still too dark for my wheatish skin. I wasn’t very impressed with the other shades as well but I had to choose one because I really wanted to. I went for the Tender Rose even though I wasn’t looking for a pink shade.
How the website says it looks
How it actually looks
The texture of the lipstick is creamy and the pigmentation is super amazing. Just one swipe is all it takes to create fuller lips.
The lipstick comes in a cylindrical shape and glides in smoothly. I have worn it only once, not for too long (4hrs) and it behaved well until I removed it myself. However, it did transfer a little.
The colour is a glamorous pinkish mauve (almost similar to the Mad Magenta from Sugar Cosmetics) which I won’t choose to wear unless I am heading to a party. It will definitely complement ethnic wears to its extent.
The lipstick doesn’t feel heavy on the lips and just like it claims feels really soft.
- Super pigmented
- Long lasting
- Pocket Friendly
- Glides Smoothly
- Not a huge fan of the shades from this range
- Transfers a little
Where to buy:
Will I suggest it?
Remember the So Matte! range launched by Nykaa? I will suggest sticking with that one unless you really love any shade from this range.
*Note: The opinions are completely personal. Just because I didn’t really like it very much doesn’t mean someone else won’t.
