The Packaging of Nykaa Matte To Last Liquid Lipstick is very attractive and chic. they come in an outer card board box packaging which looks so classy. as we all know these lipsticks are inspired by Indian cities. so we have the black n white famous Indian places print on the box of the product according to the shades. the outer packaging also contains the ingredient list and product details.
Now coming to the main packaging of the liquid lipsticks, its so adorable. i love the packaging. its a tiny square shape see trough tube. you can see the shades form the tube as well. the applicator is very small precise. it has a tear drop applicator which has a hole to it so it picks up enough product at a time to fill in your lips completely and you don’t need to go back again n again to pic up the lipstick. overall the packaging is very cute and sturdy. thumbs up from my side.
Texture Formula and Pigmentation –
The texture of Nykaa Matte To Last Liquid Lipstick is very thin and liquid-y. and the formula is very light weight that dries out completely matte. because of the thin and liquid-y texture it doesn’t take long to dry out. within 4-5 min it dries out and settles into a matte finish. these are definitely transfer- proof but they are not 100% smudge- proof or water- proof.
now for the pigmentation, i feel little struggle to get the opaque color pay off. coz i have little bit pigmented lips and i picked up both the lighter shades from the range. other than that its packed with pigments and you need one swipe only. but for the shade Dilli which is a coral pink shade, i need to go over the 2nd layer to get the full coverage.
Staying Power –
these Nykaa Matte To Last Liquid Lipstick has a pretty good staying power. As long as you are not having any meal they will last quit long around 6-7 hrs. but if you have heavy meal then they would wear off from the center of your lips.
Shades Available –
the shade range of Nykaa Matte To Last Liquid Lipstick is quite good. they have come up with 10 shades ranging from nudes to pinks, corals to reds and mauves. they have definitely try to cover a good amount of shades. among the 10 shades i picked up 2 shades which is BOMBAE and DILLI. the 10 shades they have are-
01 BOMBAE – Inspired by Bombay (Mumbai) is a peachy nude color will suit light to medium skintones
02 MAHARANI – Inspired by Jaipur is a rich dark red color that would suit across skintones.
03 GUWA – HOTTIE – Inspired by Guwahati is a rusty burnt orange color. will suit all skin tones but specially on wheatish to dusky beauties
04 KUDI- Inspired by Punjab. its a very bright fuchsia pink color that will suit almost across skin tones but for deeper skin tones its might be a neon pink.
05 MADARAS KAAPI – Inspired by Madaras. its a light brown shade that would suit across complexions
06 IT GIRL – Inspired by Bangalore. its Plum toned Pink that would suit all skin tones.
07 DILLI – Inspired by Delhi is a bright coral pink shade again which is more suitable for light to medium skintones
08 BEGUM – Inspired by Hyderabad. its a every day mauve-y pink color. its quit similar to IT GIRL but it is A bit Lighter than IT GIRL that again will suit almost all skin tones but mostly suitable for light to medium skin tones.
09 KHOOB – SURAT – Inspired by Surat is a light pink shade with little bit warm undertones will suit light to medium skintones
10 MISHTI – Inspired by Bengal. its a very pretty raspberry red color with pink undertones. its suitable for all skin tones.
My Experience with Nykaa Matte To Last Liquid Lipstick –
i bought the shade 01 BOMBAE and 07 DILLI to try. they both suited my medium skin tone really well. Well..! i have a crazy love for nude lipsticks but the shade DILLI which is bright coral color, i’m trying out for the first time n i love it. it really brighten ups my whole face. its not too loud not too nude. its a very appropriate shade for this hot summer.
I really love the packaging of Nykaa Matte To Last Liquid Lipstick is sooo cute n adorable. the leaf shaped wand makes the application very easy and precise and you don’t have to dip the wand again n again to cover your whole lips.
The lipsticks are quite pigmented and opaque but the shade DILLI i found little bit streaky while applying thus needs two coats of it for full coverage. other than that the shade BOMBAE was pretty good and my most favorite from the entire range ( as i mentioned earlier, i’m obsessed with nude lipsticks).
The Nykaa Matte To Last Liquid Lipstick are super lightweight and doesn’t feel heavy at all and for initial 3-4 hours they dont feel dry as well. what i don’t like about these lipsticks is it has a very thin liquid-y texture that i’m not big fan that. I like little bit creamy/mouse-y textures just like Nyx Lip Lingerie or Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mouse Lip Color. and also they have a little bit of a sweet fruity kind of smell, again not at all a fan of that. although they feel less dry than SUGAR Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick. But still I would suggest preparing your lips by exfoliating and moisturizing them before applying any liquid lipstick for a smooth and non-flaky finish.
These Lipsticks can last quit long if not disturbed. However, these are not smudge-proof or water-proof. but yes these are non transferable for sure. Overall liked Nykaa Matte To Last Liquid Lipstick. its a nice buy for me. if not over the top then also not bad at all.
