Nykaa So Matte Lipstick Royal oney Review & Swatch-
Nykaa cosmetics now have such a huge range of products to offer that I had to try out a few from them & of course, as per my nature, picking up a nude lipstick was a must 😛 I love their wide selection of nudes for every skintone & decided to get a beautiful nude called “Royal Honey” 🙂
What Nykaa says:

My take on the Nykaa So Matte Lipstick Royal Honey:
The packaging is very travel friendly & unique. They have tried to recreate the NARS magnetic lids & the black square tubes & though it is not quite there, I do appreciate an Indian brand trying 😀 I like the square packaging with color-coded labels.
The texture of this lipstick is soft, lightweight & so very smooth making it very easy to apply evenly on my dry lips without any lip balm 🙂 It does not highlight my lip flaws/dry patches & settles into a creamy matte finish which I approve of 🙂 I mostly dislike complete dry mattes.
The pigmentation is very good as well & you need a couple of swipes to get saturated color & it doesn’t look patchy even if you have to layer it up 🙂 I personally loved the texture <3
The shade “Royal Honey” is really one of the prettiest nudes I have ever bought 😀 It has warm, terracotta undertones & looks lovely as an anytime anywhere lipstick. I feel it would be great for lighter-medium skin tones & can be bought blindly 😀
The staying power is where it falters a bit & lasts for hardly 2-3 hours owing to its very creamy texture & I do have to reapply if I am out for the day. But I don’t mind much since it does not dry out lips at all & feels more like a balm 🙂
Pros of the Nykaa So Matte Lipstick Royal Honey:
1> Sturdy user friendly & easy to carry packaging 🙂
2> Smooth, very creamy, lightweight texture- applies easily on lips without tugging 🙂
3> Does not emphasize lip lines/dry patches 🙂
4> Settles into a comfortable creamy matte finish 🙂
5> The shade “Royal Honey” is a lovely warm toned nude which will flatter most complexions 🙂
6> Does not dry out lips 🙂
7> Very affordable 🙂
Cons of the Nykaa So Matte Lipstick Royal Honey:
Staying power is not that great.

My Rating: 4/5!
Do I recommend the Nykaa So Matte Lipstick Royal Honey?
Nykaa So Matte Lipstick Royal Honey is a very affordable & easily available warm toned nude lipstick which is light & creamy to apply & very comfortable to wear on lips 🙂 I am not regretting trying out the Nykaa lipsticks at all & might pick up a couple more 😀 Recommended!
