India’s leading online beauty store Nykaa has launched its new lipstick collection named Paintstix. For introducting them to beauty patrons, they held a glamorous launch party in Delhi. The event reminded us of school days as we enjoyed a colouring session using the newly launched Paintstix.
The new collection has total of 12 shades from bold to everyday wearable hues. Over the weekend I tried few shades from the collection and here are my reviews about the collection.

Claims: Nykaa’s Paintstix has a remarkable formula vows you with its supreme colour intensity and undeniably comfortable soft matte finish. This super pigmented lipsticks glides on your effortlessly, providing you with extreme color in one stroke. It’s big in colour and big on glamour.

There is shade for everyone.
The packaging is attractive and travel friendly.
They do not dry out the lips.
They are very  pigmented.
They do not bleed.

Cons: They have a flat, slanted tip which makes it little difficult to apply especially when applying without a lip liner. They transfer a lot and lastly the shade name is not mentioned on the lipstick.
