NYKAA So Matte Lipstick Review and Swatches


Hellow people!! Nykaa is updating their makeup line every month and I’m so excited to try them all. With their nail paints being top on the charts, they launched their range of So Matte lipsticks a week ago. I ordered them the day of launch but it took a week to arrive because of their festive sales going on. I ordered the two nude shades from the collection and to test the product before ordering more shades.

They come in 12 shades now but they are going to add more shades in the future. The shades vary from a red, a wine, a plum, 2 nudes, an orange and 6 pinks which is a bummer. Most of the pinks look very similar.

Price: 399/-



You’ve got a new favorite matte lipstick! The creamy, long-lasting texture gives you pout-worthy lips in one stroke. It effortlessly glides on your lips, giving you a gorgeous soft matte finish. Pucker up and party with our delectable matte lipstick. Muah!

Plush, pigment-rich formula. Intense color pay-off. Smooth texture. One stroke application. Luxurious, effortless glide. Soft matte finish.

*long-lasting                     *Vitamin E enriched                 * Intense Color 

It stands true to all its claim. It’s not extremely long lasting but lasts good amount of time. It has intense color. Its creamy and glides effortlessly in one-two strokes.



Nykaa always stokes me with their packaging. They have the best packaging in the market. The lipsticks come in pink boxes with the Nykaa watercolor background which is so gorgeous that I don’t feel to throw the boxes. The box contains all the info about the product. The bullet comes in matte black rectangular box with Nykaa embossed on it in silver. It has a magnetic closure which gives so chic and luxurious feel to it. The shades name is written on the bottom of the lipstick. The quality of the packaging is very nice and feels expensive.



  1. 11M NAUGHTY NUDE: A peachy nude shade.
  2. 12M TAUPE THRILL: A brown tone nude.



I love this lipsticks. They are such good quality at this price. They are creamy, have a satin finish. One stoke gives good amount of pigment. They smell just like MAC lipsticks and also feel the same. They are quite opaque and have a sheen. We get a good amount of product. They are not drying on lips and quite moisturising as they are infused with vit-e. Surprisingly they do contain parabens. They do transfer a lot but there is a stain. They easily come off with help of makeup remover. Shade range is a let down for me, These both shades look quite similar as well.


  • Super Affordable.
  • Great pigment, creamy and does not smudge all over the place
  • Medium Long lasting.
  • Amazing Packaging.
  • Moisturizing and not drying, doesn’t emphasize fine lines on lips.
  • Perfect for everyday use.


  • Need more shades.
  • Not at all a matte lipstick (if you are strictly looking for one)
  • Contains parabens.

Rating: 4.5/5

If you have to try one shade out of two, go with Taupe thrill, It’s beautiful unique brownish taupe shade which will flatter all skin tones. But if you are looking for pinkish toned nude go for Naughty nude.

Hope you find this review useful and if you did please share it with your friends and family.
