Nykaa Paintstix Purple Monster Lipstick (Shade #8) Review


Being a lipstick addict, I am always looking forward to trying out new brands and new shades. While purple is definitely not a shade that I’m trying out for the first time, Nykaa Paintstick range certainly is something that I tried out for the very first time. They have a variety shades to offer. I chose this shade because purple is a personal favourite of mine.

The lipstick comes in a cute pink box that has details mentioned on it. The lipstick comes in a sleek cylindrical packaging with the colour of the lipstick evident on it.

The texture of the lipstick is soft and imparts a creamy matte look. It swiftly glides through the lips. Pigmentation is good. It is a dark shade that even helps conceal minor lip imperfections and spots on lips.

However, I am not quite happy with the staying power. It stays put for 4 to 5 hours, in course of which, lips tend to get dry and the lipstick fades off. Finally, it leaves a violet-purple stain behind.
