Hey guys, sorry for being a dull around here. Last few days have been hectic. First, my parents came to visit me and I really wanted to spend time with them as they hardly come to Delhi. Then after they left, I was going back home to my parents place as my aunt is visiting from London. After this I am going to my in-laws place for Holi. Phew !! I do have a lot of posts planned. I have also taken all the photos but I just cant get around to actually sitting and writing the posts. I am currently siting here, at my parents place and trying to get this long overdue post up as soon as I can. Hopefully, things will be back to normal here around end March. Enough of my ranting, coming to the Nykaa Paintstix, which this post is about, Nykaa recently launched a new range of lipsticks called the Paintstix.
They have 12 shades in this range. It is commendable how a small startup has grown so big. Nykaa houses all drugstore as well as highend brand, including MAC and Bobbi Brown. They have launched their own makeup line as well.
The Nykaa Paintstix remind me of the MAC Liptensity Lipsticks in their packaging. The 12 shades available in this range are mostly all dark ones. Their color pay off is really great. One swipe and you are done. The finish is soft matte. It doesn’t feel dry at all.
They are not transfer proof. However, once the lipstick starts wearing off, it leaves a nice tint on the lips. They do last for about 4-5 hours. Packaging wise, they arent the best. The bullet of some of them feels wobbly.
Here are the swatches of all the 12 shades. I wanted to do lip swatches but I have extremely dry and chapped lips and I didn’t want them to go through the pain of trying out 12 lip colors.
Price: Rs. 425
