nykaa monalisa ultra matte

Matte, Matter, Mattest. Nykaa has come up with their newest launch of lipsticks which are ultra matte, has a wide range of colors to choose from and the packaging is attractive enough to make you go swoon over them. These are named and inspired by the most iconic women of the world. Such a wonderful thought, right? Lipsticks are my weakness and I couldn’t resist buying the newly launched Ultra Matte Lipstick in the shade “Monalisa”. Today, I am going to share my review on the same and let’s see if it has got a Yay or a Nay. Let’s get started 🙂 –Price- INR 599/-About- Meet the Nykaa Ultra Matte Lipstick, a super matte lipstick that adorns your lips with a veil of full-bodied, opaque color for a modern matte finish. The exquisitely blended formula of this lipstick strikes a perfect harmony between intense color and extreme matte finish. It’s super-smooth Jojoba Oil fortified formula glides on your lips effortlessly and keeps them nourished all day long. It doesn’t get better and matter than this.My Take on Nykaa Ultra Matte Lipstick 09 Monalisa- The lipstick comes in a black rectangular box that has a golden Aztec print on it. The black and golden combination makes it stand out, it’s compact and looks very “BEAUTIFUL”. The lipstick comes in their classic black bullet with a color-coordinated metallic cap. The cap has a magnetic property which makes it very convenient to close.Monalisa is a pinkish-nude color which is suitable for fair to medium skin tones. The color is quite pigmented as you just need one or two swipes and you are good to go. It is a great color for everyday college or office use. The texture is creamy, soft and glides on your lips like butter. You won’t feel like you have put a lipstick. It is not at all heavy and is quite pigmented. The lipstick stays for good 3-4 hours and you need to re-apply it if you have eaten anything. The shade looks beautiful on my skin and is an everyday kind of shade. It’s not over the top. It is subtle, sits on your lips comfortably and is ULTRA MATTE. It might not be suitable on excessive dry lips. The fragrance of this lipstick is mild and sort of vanilla like.  Swatch-Pros-

  • Attractive Packaging
  • Travel-friendly
  • Glides on lips
  • Decent Staying Power.
  • Good shelf life.
  • The color is matte, beautiful and looks great on Indian skin tones.


  • It might not be very comfortable for dry lips people.
  • Need to re-apply after a meal.

Rating- 4.8/5

Final Verdict- Overall, I loved the Nykaa’s Ultra Matte lipstick in the shade MONALISA. It looks like a high-end lipstick. It glides easily on the lips, stays for 3-4 hours and the shade is effortlessly gorgeous. If you are looking for a nude-pinkish shade this is a must buy. If you are looking for a Matte lipstick that is pinkish-nude in color, I would definitely recommend to buy it.
