My Experience with Nykaa So Matte Fall Winter Lipsticks- Hot Shot Espresso




It comes in outer Carton hot pink box which looks extremely classy and sturdy . the bullet sets in a Black color cuboid shaped lipstick case and it comes with magnetic clasp. Although the packaging resembles NARS Audacious Lips colors…Woah!. I really like the haul-able packaging.

Texture,Pigmentation and Fragrance


It has smooth texture glides on lips without much efforts. One swipe of this lip color delivers 80% of the actual lip color which shows in the bullet. The formula is creamy matte But, it is doesn’t set into a complete matte finish as they have shown in their own website. It has a faint vanilla fragrance which doesn’t linger for long.

Shade - Hot Shot Espresso is great shade of nude with brown hints and slight brick tones which is a unique shade to own. I love how it looks great on my NC 35 skin tone and I am sure that it looks even more amazing on deeper indian skin tones. It does stain lips and gives natural looking finish.



Performance –

Such a strange shade of rust! I always fall for orange -brick red as it is known as a perfect pick for Indian skin for the party and wedding season.

It is the most pigmented shade in this particular collection and doesn’t give streaky- looking lips even after frequent layering which is a plus point for those who like to re-apply their lipsticks. It stayed onto my lips for about 6+ hours and it fades evenly onto lips without feathering or smudging. It surely deserves a place in every makeup lover kit.
