By now you all must have seen these pretty Nykaa paintstix all over the internet. So I got my hands on all the 12 shades during its launch event in Bangalore and I must say I loved the range. Nykaa has launched various shades of Nude, pink and Reds with this one and each is prettier than the other. Lipstick formula is creamy matte that glides smoothly on the lips and is very pigmented. Considering they are a matte formula, the lipsticks are quite moisturizing and feels super light on the lips, thanks to Vit E and nutrient infused butter in it.

My Experience :
Personally, I loved all the shades present in this range and quite impressed with the smooth application. Plus it makes me happy when the lipstick pigment is nice but does not take an army of makeup removers to wipe it off my lips. My only concern would be longevity or stay of these lip colors since I noticed the color coming off within two hours of application and staining my coffee mug or glass every time I had something to drink.
Talking about which I would also like to highlight the price point of view, as these lipsticks don’t burn a hole in your pocket and I would definitely recommend you to try out one (or two or a few may be!) for the range of colours available. Hope the swatches were helpful for you to decide your favourite shade and do let me if you have one!
Until next time,
