First time in the history, a brand launched new shades and I bought every shade except the nudes, I myself am shook! While choosing the Top 5 nude lipsticks, I realized, 80% of my collection are nudes and it was high time I moved on from nudes for a period. Then the next day, Nykaa added 8 new shades to their paintstix with 5 pinks and 3 nudes and I loved the 4 pinks and bought them immediately.
I put these to the test for a week now and have my thoughts around it. The shades might look a bit similar in pictures and on lips but they are quite different.

Nykaa Paintstix! Gold Digger 13 :
Keep Hustling and never slow it down with our Nykaa Paintstix! Lip Crayon in Gold Digger. You’ll be in highlife, popping champagne in the sunlight, with this stunning dark pink shade. You’ve never had it so good!
If you would have asked to to wear such a vibrant bold fuschia pink few months ago, my answer would have been “Hell no!”. From pinks, fuschia, magenta are all those bright pinks are least fav, but when I tried this for the first time, I thought to myself, “not quite bad”. It’s very vibrant but not quite everyday shade, though it looks good, I don’t see myself wearing this shade quite often. If you love this kind of pink, just go for it.
This is a reddish pink shade. This glides on like butter, it is a satin finish. While I was swatching these shades for pictures which was also my first time trying these out, I was trying to take this shade off using a makeup remover and it stained my lips so bad that the tint lasted up till next morning. So even if you eat or make out, this will stay on your lips as a very pretty tint for long time and the lipstick itself is very long lasting.
Nykaa Paintstix! Boss Babe 14:
Nothing can equal the power of a bold pink lips! A swipe of our Nykaa Paintstix! Lip Crayon in Boss Babe and you are set to take on the day! As they say, give a girl the right lip shade and watch her conquer the world.
This shade is very very similar to the Goal Digger 13 shade. This is on the pinkier side but on lips it looks almost the same. I would suggest you to get either of these instead of both as its waste of money to buy both. The finish, texture and everything are quite similar to all other. These aren’t patchy and quite opaque in one stroke. This does not stain your lips like the previous one but fades from the inside giving a gradient effect.
Nykaa Paintstix! Smell The Rosé 15 :
Whatever your plans might, once a while you should stop and savor some delicious Rose! This beautiful rosy pink shade is sure to light up for your face. Whether it’s a work day or a relaxing weekend, this shade will have a special place in your kitty always!.
Now this is a shade I enjoy wearing! I love rosy pinks and this is a shade I haven’t seen or own. You can wear this on everyday basis and it doesn’t look over the top. It’s bright but the right amount of boldness. I love to wear these kind of shades when there is nothing much going on on my eyes and it brings all the focus to the lips. I layer it with Loreal Infallible gloss 110 to lighten it up a little more and give it a high shine which makes it even more pretty. I would highly suggest this shade. Similar to the 14 shade, this gives a slight tint and the gradient effect.
Nykaa Paintstix! Cheerleader Daze 16 :
When you need some motivation, our Nykaa Paintstix! Lip Crayon in Cheerleader Daze is your one solution. This beautiful mauve shade can uplift any mood in a New York minute! Count on this one to have your back
This is my FAVORITE shade out of all the shades I bought and even from the previous original shades. This is a plummy- mauve shade, perfect for the fall season coming up. I see myself wearing this quite a lot in the future. This is quite darker than what it looks in picture. It is very unique shade and if you are looking for just one shade to get your hands on then this is the one. This would be even prettier as a powder matte finish but not bad. This this slightly more pigmented than the 14 and 15 and stain lips bit more.
There you have the review. These are highly pigmented and very long lasting lipsticks and not to forget, very affordable. I quite enjoy these so I approve this.
Thank you for your valuable time and hope you like the review and swatches.
Till next time, Stay Gorgeous. Love you all. xoxo- Bareen.
