Nykaa So Matte Lipstick in Taupe Thrill

Ever since Nykaa launched their line of lipsticks, they have surely been a cult favorite of many bloggers and Youtubers. People were and are still raving how good these are in terms of quality, pigmentation, packaging and my God the price. Ask me why I got this lipstick after such a long time since launched ? The reason is due to its then available shade selection. It did not have any unique shades in their initial launched collection, which I did not already had in my kitty. And also from numerous swatches that I have seen online, I noticed that some of the darker berry shades which I thought to get, swatched very patchy. So, I played safe and got Taupe Thrill. One thing I know for sure that I would wear this shade daily and would use up way before the expiration date. Recently, Nykaa has added many beautiful shades to their Fall line which I might consider purchasing in the future.

This shade I felt is the perfect 'my lips but better' shade for richer skin toner girls of NC 42 and beyond. You can probably tell that from the lip swatch from the below post.

I am wowed by their packaging. The magnetic clasp in the tube is fancy, which you would get in high end lipsticks. The tube is rectangular one and quite bigger than any other lipstick and this is the only lipstick tube which does not fit into my acrylic lipstick holder. This is my loner lipstick which cannot join the others.

Texture and pigmentation

I don't know why they call it "So Matte" ! When this is never a "So Matte" kind of a texture. It has a creamy texture which gives quite a satin finish on lips. When you allow it to settle down, it gives a velvet matte finish. This is not like MATTE matte ! You can achieve the matte look by brushing some powder on top.

One swipe covers light pigmentation on lips. My upper lip is quite heavily pigmented, so I have to go over multiple times only for the upper lip to cover the pigmentation. May be this would not be case for the darker shades. Has a faint vanilla fragrance.

My experience and thoughts

The lipstick is very moisturizing, glides smoothly without any pull or tug. If you have dry flakes on lips, this smoothens them, softens them. This is what I love the most about the lipstick. In the lip swatch below you can see there were some dry flakes on the inner section of my upper lip, and lipstick smoothed it. This does not dry up lips as well.

Without any food and drinking or with very light carefully eaten meals the lipstick survives for 4-5 hours. With heavy meals this fades, but evenly. A hint of color does stays back around of the edges of the lips, which goes unnoticeable for deeper skin tone. Reapplication is easy and smooth. This is not smudge free and transfer free but does not bleed.

I feel Nykaa mixed and matched features from high end lipsticks and gave us something which is very much affordable yet being very good in quality. The fragrance would remind you some of MAC, the packaging some of Bobbi Brown. There is a reason why people are raving about this and I cannot deny the fact that I am one of them. And this is only because of such an affordable price tag, if you buy in bundle then you can get it in lot cheaper price.
