Nykaa Matte lipstick- Review


Hi guys,

Recently Nykaa had launched new shades in their “So Matte” lipstick range. All the shades are beautiful MLBB shades for every possible skintone.

To know more about these lipsticks please keep on reading.


The packaging is very sleek and gives a High-end look to it. The outer packaging of the lipstick is standard Nykaa pink-gulaal-gives-me-holi-feels kind of packaging ?. The front has the name of the product written in black and the product description is on the backside. On one side is the shade number and name printed and sticked on the sticker which is almost of the shade of the actual lipstick.

Inside is the sleek packaging of the lipstick, which is in jet black matte finish. The shape is squarish and the name is written in silver. Here too, the shade is mentioned below the lipstick. The lipstick has magnetic closure which is great, as it is quite secure,thus, making it look like an high-end lipstick.

These are priced at ₹.399 for 4.2g of product.

Its claims as follows,

* Long-lasting.

* Vitamin E enriched.

*Intense colour.

Shades –

Nykaa has launched a total of 8 nude shades with a purpose of catering to a large variety of skintones, so that everyone can find a perfect nude shade for them.

I have picked up four beautiful shades from this range which are,
1) 21M CARAMEL MOCHA – It is a beautiful pink based nude.

2) 22M ROYAL HONEY – This one is very similar to Caramel Mocha but this is more of brown.

3) 25M HAUTE FUDGE – This is a stunning warm toned-brown.

4) 26M BON BON – This one is again a very beautiful cool-toned brown.

Pigmentation and Longetivity

The pigmentation of these lipsticks is great. One swipe of these gives you a full opaque coverage.

It is not flat matte, instead, it is creamy matte and thus very mosturising and comfortable on the lips. It doesn’t settle in the lines and doesn’t dry out your lips. If you wish to get a very matte look  you can blot-off the access product and it will give you a matte finish without taking off the product.

These are not transfer-proof or water-proof.

However they do leave a good stain of colour on the lips. These stayed on for a good 6-7 hours on my lips. I had to retouch a little bit once. Hence, these are comfortable, mosturising and quite long-lasting.

Shade 26M Bon Bon

Overall Thoughts

Over-all I would say, I was absolutely in love these lipsticks. The shades are stunning, the ones I picked were great for my skintone and also for my sister-in-law who is a dusky beauty. The rest of the shades looked promising too. They were comfortable and had good pigmentation, comes in a great packaging which was a good point.

The only drawback I felt that the shades cannot be recognisable easily, as you have to pick up each lipstick and check which is which colour.

I would give it 4.5/5 ratings.

Thats all for this review guys. These lipstciks are great if you want some great nudes and browns in your vanity.

Will be back with a new post soon.

Till then lots of love and power to you’ll.
