Today I am going to talk about the lipsticks that has become my go to when it comes to everyday minimal makeup. These are the Nykaa Paintstix. Nykaa has started their own range of makeup products and I took my sweet time to try this brand out. I was a little skeptical while buying these lipsticks but could not resist as I have heard a lot of makeup lovers raving about these. So just to try out the formula I went ahead and bought 3 from the 20 shades range.
Price : Rs 425/- ; Available only on Nykaa
These have a cylindrical stick like plastic packaging which is quite sturdy and nothing fancy. The product is in bullet form with a slanted tip for easy lining and application. The caps are color coded which makes it really easy to identify the shades.
Texture/ Formula/ Pigmentation : These have a soft matte formula that glides on very easily. one swipe will give you almost full pigmentation. The finish is matte. I was surprised to see how matte it is. Like other matte formulas these are not drying or uncomfortable. But yes, you have to moisturize your lips before using these lipsticks.
Staying Power : It is not exactly long wearing but for the price I was not disappointed either. I was rather impressed. It stayed well for 2 to 3 hrs. But after that you definitely have to reapply.
lets come to Shades now. I chose these shades because they are very suitable for everyday use. There are other darker as wells as nude shades in this lipstick range.
Peaches and Cream : Its a peachy coral pink color which translates almost nude on me.
Smell the Rose : A rosy pink shade. Its my favorite of the three
Cheerleader Daze : This one is a deeper pinkish plum shade.
Overall, these lipsticks are great in terms of texture, pigmentation and formula. And they are super affordable. You can get them in much lesser price on Nykaa as they almost always have a discount offer going on. All my ladies who are a lipstick junkie like me should give this one a try ! You will definitely find a shade that you like from there collection. I know I will be buying more of these !!!
