Nykaa Paintstix Bombshell Berry (09) & Rebellious Red (10) Review & Swatches

Hello Cuties!!!

These days I am shopping as well reviewing lipsticks on my blog like a crazy 😍. Believe me it’s not my fault, all this happening is because of my bestie Papri. वह कहते हैं ना "खरबूजे को देखकर खरबूजा रंग बदलता है " 😜 (P.s We both are not muskmelons). Few days back I bought Nykaa Cool Girl Nude Paintstix and now have added four new Paintstix in my collection. In this post I will be talking about Bombshell Berry (09) & Rebellious Red (10) shades of this range.

Price: 425 Rs

Wt: 3.5 gm

Online availability:

Shelf life: 3 years

Packaging: Each PaintStix comes in a pink colored rectangular shape cardboard box on which all the required details are printed. The actual product comes in a thin bullet packaging which has a color coded cap. A label is also displayed at the bottom which specifies shade code. The packaging of this Paintstix resembles to the Mac Liptensity lipsticks. A full score to this Paintstix for its packaging. 

My opinion about this product: Generally I prefer natural looking shades which can be easily carried off but there are certain occasions when you want to look Showstoppers. These two shades (Bombshell Berry & Rebellious Red) are those which I would like to wear in those occasions. Both shades are immensely pigmented and in one swipe they give almost opaque coverage. These are creamy matte lipsticks so the formula is a mix of creamy and hydrating one that gives a satiny or velvety matte finish.

Both the shades have nice staying power; with meals and drinks, they survive for 5 to 6 hours on your lips. After that they fade way from the center of lips so it appears like that you have applied only a lip liner. The formula doesn’t bleed or smudge it holds on to lips without flaking or drying. Both shades are amazing and are easy to carry in a marriage or for newly weds brides. The only problem I felt is the flat top applicator. It is very difficult to control lipstick from coming outside the lips while applying.

1. Bombs Berry (Shade no.09): It is a rich burgundy red with warm brown undertones shade.

2. Rebellious Red (Shade no. 10): It is a Red with warm brown undertones shade.
