Who is it for?  Nykaa Royal Honey Lipstick is part of Nykaa’s range of 8 nude lipsticks. It is a great neutral/nude colour that is suitable for fair to medium skin tone. The majestic warm tone nude color is perfect for your day out.


It costs Rs. 199 for the mini version 1.5gm and Rs.399 for the full version 4.2gm.

My experience with Nykaa So matte lipstick Royal honey:


It comes in a pink outer wrapping with Nykaa written on it along with some other details. Inside you get a sturdy yet chic black matte lipstick packing. It comes with a magnetic closure which the unique feature for this product and thus closes with a click sound. The magnetic closure ensures that it remains firmly closed.


This is a warm tone nude color which is suitable for skin tone ranging from fair to medium skin tone. Darker tones can also try but may find it a bit dull and washing. The shade number is 22M and is written at the bottom of the tube.


As opposed to the name ‘so matte’ this one is a bit creamy matte. You can apply it without any lip balm and it is not drying like most matte lipsticks. The texture is smooth and has rich pigmentation. It doesn’t settle into fine lines, you will get opaque coverage in a single swipe. The lipstick will feel a little creamy on your lips.


Pigmentation is quite rich, and you can get a good dark finish in one swipe.


Everyone needs a good everyday nude color which you can wear as a routine shade to college or office. This subtle is perfect for this purpose. The chic black tube also makes it easy to carry with you in your purse. This warm nude is everything you need to brighten your day. Its soft creamy matte texture doesn’t dry my lips and felt soft and smooth throughout the day. It also doesn’t break into fine lines on your lips or stain them. There is no case of bleeding as I have noticed. Where it lacks is staying power. I last for about 4-6 hours and has to be reapplied thereafter. It also transfers a lot to anything you eat or drink so you have to be careful about it.

  1. Soft and lightweight, doesn’t dry the lips.
  2. Creamy matte texture which is quite smooth.
  3. Doesn’t cause lip bleeding.
  4. Doesn’t settle into fine lines on the lips.
  5. Comes is travel-friendly packaging.
  6. The great everyday nude shade
  7. Compliments Indian skin tone
  1. Has low staying power so need to be reapplied
  2. Transfers a lot
  3. Not suitable for darker skin tone

Would I recommend it?

Yes at this price it’s a great product. It’s a delicious everyday nude color which you can spot anywhere and i think it’s creamy semi-matte texture is good for dry lips.

Would I repurchase it?

Yes definitely, I really like this color as well as it’s finished so after I run out of this one I will definitely repurchase.
