PACKAGING : The Nykaa Matteilicious lip crayons come in the same regular ‘Nykaa’ packaging- the pinky coral carton box with the description on the box. And the lip crayon comes in a textured matte crayon pencil form with a color coded indication at the bottom. And the lip crayons have silver embossed Nykaa Matteilicious print on it. A sharpener is included with every lip crayon.
FORMULA, TEXTURE & PIGMENTATION : The Nykaa Matteilicious lip crayons are basically powdery matte lipsticks. I really had great expectations when they claimed that these apply as a crayon, wears as a liquid lipstick and stays on forever. They apply as a creamy lipstick but these set to a powdery matte finish. We just have to give some time for the lipstick to set from creamy to a matte. They feel comfortable on lips though. The most important point to remember is that we need to have ultra smooth lips for application, otherwise you gonna mess this up. They glide on the lips smoothly. Since the initial formula while application is creamy, it doesn’t tug or pull the skin. They have medium-high sheer coverage. Yes, I was surprised by this, I expected crazy pigmentation of them. For darker lips like mine they do need a second layer. And when I applied the second layer it really went on patchy. If you have a habit of pressing your lips together constantly they do get patchy, I mean the lipstick just comes off like a patch and you have to reapply it. These Mattelicious lip crayons are most nearer to the claim transfer-proof. I did see that they do transfer a very tiny bit. If you check for transferproof right after application, you would definitely see that they do transfer the powdery tint. But if you check it after an hour or so, then you’ll rarely see the transfer on to cups or glasses. These stayed on the lips for 5-6 hours with drinks and meal survival. After 5-6 hours they start to fade off overall, most oftenly from the inner rim.
Next Level Nude is a perfect nude shade for me and its the only lip crayon that I loved from the entire set. It applied very smoothly, stayed on my lips for more than 5-6 hours and felt very comfortable wearing it. Pink On Fleek is the most miserable lip crayon from this collection. I donno if its only me who got a bad batch of this lip crayons set or is it same with everyone, but no matter how many times in how many ways I try to apply this crayon, this doesn’t work on me. The application is very sheer, it gets patchy and what not. Hot As Red and Perfect Plum have decent pigmentation and these darker shades do leave a tint behind on the lips.
Overall, by now, when Nykaa has its own beauty/makeup line and people do rave about your products, we do expect more from you. I’m a little disappointed with these lip crayons. I feel that nykaa has to improve the formula of these Matteilicious lip crayons.
