My Experience With This Lipstick

Nykaa So Matte Nude Lipstick – Royal Honey has an attractive packaging. This is the first time ever that I’ve seen a lipstick with magnetic closure! The body of the lipstick is so sturdy but I doubt if the lid will stay intact while carrying it in my pouch? Nevertheless, let me talk about the shade, Royal Honey or 22M. It’s a warm nude shade that looks more like faded rust. The pigmentation is superb while the texture is creamy. This gives a semi-matte look after applying. The only drawback is that the staying power is less. But there is nothing that a blotting paper and 2-3 more coats can’t fix! 😉 And I suggest you use it this way for a beautiful finish and extending its durability.

Summing up,


♥ Magnetic Closure

♥ Decent pigmentation

♥ Suits fair as well as dusky skin tone

♥ Creamy texture

♥ Doesn’t dry out the lips

♥ Competitively priced


🙁 Less Staying power

🙁 Transfers easily

🙁 Doesn’t look matte but has a satin finish

🙁 Available only at Nykaa
