For most Indian women today, Nykaa.com has become the go-to website for their beauty buys. I don't know about you, but I head over to Nykaa, without thinking twice, whenever I'm in the need of some beauty product - be it my go-to kajal or a favorite lipstick or even a new matte nailpaint I want to flaunt on my cuticles!
So, it's little surprise that we are always excited to see Nykaa come up with their new range of products every once in a while! Their in-house products are fun, innovative and of good quality, which can give any of the other mass market brands a run for their money.
When Nykaa called us to launch their new range of lipsticks, called PaintStix, we were dying to see what they had in store for us! And to say that they didn't disappoint would be an understatement!
The event was fun and fabulous - we got to paint art on canvas with the lipsticks (you would know all about it if you follow me on Instagram) - and of course, we took away the whole range of 12 PaintStix for reviewing. :)
All this happened almost a month ago, but alas, work, work and more work got in the way...and here I am, finally getting the time to sit down and write the review!
The whole range of Nykaa PaintStix is made up of 12 rich shades of intense, pigmented colors that are perfect for wearing any time with any outfit for any occasion! The range takes care of all your lip color needs - comprising of a wide spectrum of shades, from soft nudes to pop pinks to rich reds to deep browns. These lipsticks are not only bold and beautiful in saturated colors, but also boast of a long-lasting formula that comes with the goodness of Vitamin E & nutrient-infused butter! What more can your lips want???
Shade 01: Nude Spice
A soft, creamy shade of nude brown which is perfect for a barely-there make-up look. Wear it with well-defined eyes and a white shirtdress for a lunch date with bae!
Shade 02: Cool Girl Nude
A light brown color that complements most Indian skin tones beautifully! Sport this with light make-up, a sleek hairdo and crisp formals for a long day at work.
Shade 03: No Chill Orange
Give your lips a taste of tangerine this season with this vibrant orange shade that can spruce up any look! Flaunt this lip color with a messy braid, swing top, shorts and gladiators for a day at a music festival.
Shade 04: Peaches n Cream
One of my personal favorites from this range, this nude, peachy shade is perfect as a go-to lip color for everyday looks. Wear this with rosy cheeks, a floral maxi dress and summer sandals for a Sunday brunch look!
Shade 05: Tender Rose
I'm a sucker for pink lip colors and this shade had me at hello! A pretty pop of pink that is perfect for summer outfits, this color can be worn with a chic sundress and floppy hat at the next beach vacay!
Shade 06: Chick Flick Pink
This shade is more of a medium reddish hue than a pink, but rich and regal, nevertheless. This color can be sported with kohl-ed eyes and a contemporary ethnic dress for a day spent at the flea market with friends!
Shade 07: Rock n Roll Pink
A vibrant pink with a tinge of purple, this shade can act as a mood-lifter on the drabbest of days! Swipe this lippie on with blow-dried hair, a sporty t-shirt dress and sneakers for a girl-next-door look, perfect for a movie date.
Shade 08: Purple Monster
It'll take a bold fashionista to don this color, as such an intense, deep purple is not everyone's cup of tea. One can turn heads at a cocktail party in this extreme shade paired with light, smoky eyes; an elegant evening dress and sky-high stilettos!
Shade 09: Bombshell Berry
This burgundy-meets-oxblood hue is not for the faint-hearted either. These deep berry lips can be flaunted with dramatic eyes and a gorgeous saree for your cousin's Sangeet ceremony or a red carpet event!
Shade 10: Rebellious Red
Who doesn't love a rich, ruby red on their pout? This shade is perfect for all the times when you are feeling like painting the town red. Sport this color with wingtip liner, your favorite LBD and metallic pumps for a fun night out with friends!
Shade 11: Hearts n Kisses
Another glamorous red with pink undertones, this shade is ideal for bringing out the fun, fearless female in you! Flaunt this beauty with wavy hair and a little white dress, and keep your date's eyes glued on to you throughout the evening!
Shade 12: Grunge Brown
Get your 90s grunge game on with this deep hue of bold brown. It's deep, it's dark, it's mysterious and it's sure to give you total #girlboss vibes when you wear this shade with a contoured face, a bodycon dress and studded boots for a glamorous rock-chic look!
So, what are you waiting for? Head over to Nykaa.com and get your hands on these gorgeous, rich and intense PaintStix today for a bold and vibrant summer where your lips do all the talking!
