Nykaa Paintstix Collection First Impressions – All 12 Shades!


In the age of liquid lipsticks, the pleasure a conventional tube of role up lipstick can give is unmatchable. While the market is being flooded with run of the mill tubes of matte liquid lipsticks, there are brands like Nykaa who still want to keep the very essence of conventional lipsticks alive, and after the huge success of their regular lipstick lines, Nykaa launched its biggest hit–the Paintstix Lippie Sticks Collection in 12 vibrant shades and here I am with the first impressions and images of all the shades from the range.

My Experience and First Impressions!

To start off, the collection has a shade for every mood, every skin color, every occasion and every undertone. For a fair-medium skin tone to a deep tone, the colors are universally flattering and if by chance you own the entire collection (like I do), you are perhaps sorted for the coming months without having to buy any other lip shade. It has browns, nudes, pinks, deep magentas, different variants of red, violets, fuschias, burgundy and a very fun but wearable orange as well.

Talking about the packaging of the lipstick, each of them is perfectly color coded and looks really gorgeous when the collection sits atop your vanity all lined up together. Setting aside the aesthetics, the lipsticks are really sturdy and durable. I carry them around in my handbag all the time and they never snap open in the bag. Win!

Staying Power And Pigmentation!

Though the shades range from really light nudes to deep browns, purples and bright pinks and oranges–the staying power of all of them is equally good. Yes, without a doubt, the deeper shades leave behind stronger tints while the lighter shades go off completely after 3-4 hours. But that does not bother me because unlike the patchy reapplication of the liquid lipsticks, Nykaa Paintstix is very easy to touch up and even reapply as and when needed.

The Lipsticks promise a full blown saturated pigmentation in one swipe and delivers just that. All the lipsticks in the collection are insanely pigmented and give the perfect and even pop of color to your lips on every application. Plus, due to the super saturated pigments int he lipsticks, they stay on for a good 3-4 hours with minimal smudging without eating or drinking. But let us give the lipsticks some freedom here–they will not last if you are binging on greasy food and sipping on drinks without a straw. These do transfer from the lips like any normal lipstick, but if you reapply the lipstick after it has slightly smudged–it magically settles to a long lasting finish somehow. I prefer to apply the lipstick in two coats–within a gap of an hour to increase the longevity of the lipsticks.
