No color demarcation on the packaging

I love lipsticks, and I love trying different types of them. And every time a new range of lipsticks is introduced, I have to get them home, try them, and see if they are as good as they claim to be. Nykaa launched the So Matte Collection, and without any delay, I ordered three shades to try – Totes Natural, Cinnamon Crunch, and Pink Brat.

These lipsticks come in tiny black packaging with a magnetic cap. The packaging is cute and travel-friendly and great for the price you pay. However, there is no demarcation of the color on the lipstick. If you own more than one color from this range, you will have to read the shade name at the bottom every time you want to find out which color it is.

Talking about the texture, feel, and pigmentation, I am completely satisfied with this range. It’s a creamy soft-matte formula that does not dry out your lips. It keeps them moisturized. Also, it does not accentuate fine lines or settle in patches. It’s just so perfect! The only thing I do not like about applying lipsticks is retouching, and that is one thing you cannot avoid with this Nykaa So Matte Lipstick. It wears off too soon. The lipstick cannot stand light snacking also. It’s such a turn-off. But, unlike liquid lipsticks, it's not tricky to reapply these lipsticks.

These tiny, affordable lipsticks are great when you have to step out for a few hours, with light makeup on. There is a never-ending range of shades to choose from and its not heavy on the pocket. I love these lipsticks.

Not So Matte!



Cute packaging


Not matte

Shades do not match the ones shown on the website

Nykaa is such a blessing to the makeup world. All their products are genuine, and almost everything you need is available on a click. Nykaa launched these lipsticks, and I had to try them.

These lipsticks are so affordable. Trying one or two shades wasn’t going to be heavy on my pocket. I ordered the shades by just looking at the website. But, these shades are nowhere close to what I was expecting. The nude is not nude, and the pink is almost red. This is not what I wanted.

Also, these lipsticks are not matte, not even close to it. They settle with a shiny satin finish, and I am not a fan of this. More than the color, the satiny finish stands out. I am not happy with these lipsticks.

Affordable and nice



Pretty packaging

Nice shade range

Easy to build up


Not very long-lasting

Okay, this is nice, cute, affordable lipstick, which is available in 50 fabulous shades. The colors are highly pigmented, offer a great pay off, and just one stroke is enough for that opaque finish. I like how these lipsticks keep my lips moisturized the entire time they are on.

The soft, creamy formula is easy to apply and settles with a nice soft matte look. After a while, it just feels like a balm with tint on the lips. Also, after it wears off, it's so easy to retouch. It doesn’t leave any residue behind. I like these lipsticks.

Not what I expected it to be.


Doesn’t cost much


Not matte

Let’s get to the point! These Nykaa So Matte Lipsticks are not matte. They are far from it. I bought two shades, and now I don’t use any. These are regular creamy sating lipsticks with a great shade range and excellent pigmentation. These are not for matte lovers.

Is this a long wear lipstick? Are touch-ups required?

Geeta GhokuleMarch 18, 2019

Geeta GhokuleMarch 18, 2019

The Nykaa lipstick has a staying power of about 5 to 6 hours with light snacking. After the meal, the lip color starts to fade off. However, the lipstick does not appear patchy, it fades away leaving a tint on the lips.
