Written by: Swati on:

So, we have been getting a lot of requests to review the new Nykaa Paintstix since the time we shared them on our Instagram page. While, I have not finished taking lip swatches for all of them yet, your requests will no go unheard! So, today we have the review along with the swatches of all the 12 shades!
Did I hear a squeal of delight? :) :)

Take a look!

Packaging : The bullets have a color coded cap which is super handy to locate the shade you want to pick. I like the matte finish as well. However, the packaging feels a little bit flimsy. The Nykaa So Matte lipsticks were definitely sturdier.
The outer carton has the shade name sticker, while the actual lipstick bullet just has a number sticker below..I do not understand why. I would probably peel off the name stickers and stick them to the bullet. The actual lipstick is flat ended, which might be a bit problematic for some.

Texture : They have a super creamy formula. They go on smoothly without tugging. The finish is a creamy stain matte. These are non drying and feel quite comfortable to wear throught the day.

Pigmentation : Insane. These are highly pigmented, giving an opaque color with a single swipe. Yes, they will work very well for pigmented lips.

Staying Power : The darker colors stay on for a bit longer compared to the lighter ones and also leave behind some stain. The average staying power is around 4 hours depending on the amount of snacking you do. These are not transfer proof.

Shades : Great variety of colors. Nudes, Pinks, Orange, Berry, Purples and Brown, the range will surely have a color you like. The shades are numbered 01 to 12 apart from having names.

01Nude Spice - Neutral nude
02 Cool Girl Nude - Cool toned, sligthly deeper nude-brown
03 No Chill Orange - Bright warm toned orange. Looks more neon in the tube.
04 Peaches N Cream - Peachy color (with some pink tones).
05 Tender Rose - Cool toned bright pink
06 Chick Flick Pink - Pink-Brown
07 Rock N Roll Pink - Bright fuschia pink
08 Purple Monster - Blue toned purple (quite a unique statement color)
09 Bombshell Berry - Dark berry color (leaning a bit towards maroon)
10 Rebellious Red - Bright cool toned color (has been claimed to be similar to MAC Ruby Woo).
11 Hearts N Kisses - Bright red with pink undertones
12 Grunge Brown - Pure brown color (typical 90s vibe)

For the price point, these lipsticks are certainly worth checking out. These are comfortable to wear and there is a color for everyone in the range. I think my personal favourites so far would be 04, 09. I am also enjoyinh 05, 02 and 12 and I cannot wait to try out 08 more!

Which are your favourites from this range?
Yes the lipswatches will be coming soon :) Very soon :)
