You guys anyways know, I have this hobby( that’s the coolest or fancy word I chose to replace the word obsession) of buying all kind of lipsticks. Added a new member to my collection is this beautiful liquid lipstick from the brand Nykaa.
Nykaa is one of the online stores for cosmetics and accessories. Along with selling different cosmetics, they have started their own cosmetic line, with the same name. Highlighter, nail care, foundation, concealers and of course lip products to mention few.
The range of liquid lipstick I am talking about is with the name Nykaa matte to last. As the name suggests it’s a matte finish lipstick. This means zero glossy effect.
Most attractive thing about these lipsticks are their unique names, inspired by some of the cities of India. Which are unique and special in their own way. There are 18 different shades, all with some attractive names. Dilli, Bombae, IT girl( Bengaluru), Mastani (Pune), Madras Kaafi (Chennai) etc. Aren’t they super cute???
Let’s talk about the shade I bought. It’s the shade Gul. Inspired by the hilly regions of India.
Total shades available:
Shade I Chose :
Gul (Pinkish shade). Perfect for day wear.
550 INR for 5 ml (You can buy it from here.)
Shelf life :
What company claims and the Ingredients :
This packing reminds me of that of Huda beauty liquid lipsticks. A sliding, tiny case is just as cute as a button.
Outer cartoon has the similar shade as that of the lipstick inside. This makes the recognition easier.
Each packing has unique design on these cute outer cartoons. Particularly some unique monuments or things that symbolises the name of the city the particular lipstick is representing. For ex : Gul has these beautiful hilly region design, The shade Mastani has the beautiful Shaniwar wada(Her palace) design on it.
The product comes inside this tiny plastic packing. The rectangular shaped container is quite sturdy and the lid is quite tight. Which makes it a good travel companion.
The plastic case is transparent and has the brand name printed on it in my favorite color – black. Thus you can keep an eye on the remaining quantity of the product.
On bottom of the case, is the sticker which has the number and name of the shade. Thus making it easier for you to pick the particular shade from your collection.
Its doe feet applicator. Soft and easy to use.
It is a pinkish shade. As you can see in the picture below. This is how it looks in day light. Even if you are a beginner and not so comfortable with lipsticks, you can still carry this shade. Looks very natural and light.
Color payoff :
I loved the color payoff. One swipe, you are done. The pictures you are seeing here, I have applied just a single layer of the lipstick on my lips.
Ahhh I am just amazed by its staying power. PS: I am not paid by Nykaa for this review. haha. If you are a lipstick lover, you know the pain of touch ups. If you are also lazy enough for touch ups, join me to know further.
I had saved this lipstick for one of my office parties. I had applied it on my lips at around 10:30 in the morning and when I went to wash my face before dozing off, the tint was still there…!!! It did fade. It wasn’t as intense as it was at the time of application (of course). But the tint was still there even after good amount of time. #Impressed
Did it bleed?
While the lipstick was on, I had great food. While we were having food I was bit conscious whether the lipstick bleeds. Which can make me look like a vampire. haha. But for my goodness it didn’t bleed post having food. It did transfer though, to my water bottle, the juice glass and spoons.
Did it dry my lips?
The finish is matte. Most of us have the insecurities as the matte finish might highlight the dry patches on lips. But this liquid lipstick has impressed me. After Huda beauty, I would love top recommend this matte lipstick to my girlies. It doesn’t really dry your lips. I did felt a little dryness in the beginning. But once it settled, the finish was matte and didn’t highlight any dry lines on my lips.
Does the product stands for what it claims???
- Superior matte finish – Yes
- All day long – Yes quite a good time.
- Transfer proof – Not really. It did transfer even after it was completely dried.
What I loved:
- Comfortable matte finish.
- Lasting power is impressive. No touch ups required.
- Travel friendly packing.
- No preservative.
- Cruelty free.
- No paraben.
- Does not burn your pockets.
Will I repurchase???
Yes. I am going to purchase the shade Bombae. Very soon…!!!
Will I recommend???
Of course. In fact, I have already done that. Umm rather, the shade has already sold itself. My colleagues were awed by the shade I had wore for the party. I was so impressed at the end of the day, I did recommend this range to those who were interested to add a beauty to their collection of lip products.
Mygirlypedia Rating : 4.5/5 ( It did transfer a bit so deducting 0.5 )
If you want to try liquid lipstick, without making hole in your pockets and want a non drying formula – give it a try.
Don’t forget to let me know how you find this range. 🙂
