Review and Swatches : Nykaa ‘So Matte’ lipsticks


Hope you all are doing well..
Today’s post is about another one of the Nykaa lipsticks. I was so impressed with the Paintstix that I decided to try the Nykaa So Matte lipsticks. These are one of the first products that Nykaa launched when they came up with their own range of makeup.

What the brand says about it :

You’ve got a new favorite matte lipstick! The creamy, long-lasting texture gives you pout-worthy lips in one stroke. It effortlessly glides on your lips, giving you a gorgeous soft matte finish. Pucker up and party with our delectable matte lipstick. Muah!

  • Plush, pigment-rich formula.
  • Intense color pay-off.
  • Smooth texture.
  • One stroke application.
  • Luxurious, effortless glide.
  • Soft matte finish.

Packaging : I must say that I was impressed with the packaging. It looks like a high end lipstick. Its rectangular in shape and even though it looks bulky its quite light weight. The lipstick cover is magnetic and shuts properly. But I have noticed that sometimes the cover comes of when its in my bag. The shade name is mentioned on the bottom of the lipstick. You have to read the shade name to identify it, unlike the Paintstix in which you can find the shade by the lipstick cover. The lipstick comes in a traditional bullet form.

Texture / Pigmentation : The brand says its matte but its not completely matte. It has some shine to it. It has a creamy texture and glides on effortlessly. The pigmentation is amazing and it does what the brand claims. One swipe gives you pretty good color. The formula is not long lasting but stays on for 2 to 3 hrs. It transferred onto my cup when I drank coffee. So you will need touch ups with this one. But I am not complaining. For the price its completely worth it.

Shades : This lipstick has a wide range of shades. 30 shades to be exact. There is a shade for every skin tone. There are some great nudes and berry toned lipsticks in this range. I picked 4 shades, out of which 2 are nudes and 2 are dark shades.

Here are the swatches :

I swatched these on my lips as well 😎😎

California Merlot

Final Thoughts: This is a lipstick suitable for ladies who like comfortable creamy mattes. If you are someone who is looking for a shine free complete matte lipstick I would not suggest this one. I personally like the shade range in this collection and would not mind to try a few more. Like I said earlier there is a shade for every skin tone in this collection. Plus it is super affordable.

Hope this helps.
