Nykaa Molten Matte Lip and Cheek Color- Review

Hi Everyone,

Now that I have introduced myself in my previous blog, I have selected a few products to review that I have used recently and found them helpful. One of them is Nykaa Molten Matte lip and cheek color which I am using since April 2019. The product reminds me of Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creme. I got the shade 08 (Monica) and have been using it for the last few months very frequently.

The lip color is versatile as it can be used for lips, cheeks and can be applied as eyeshadow as well (probably to match the outfit you are wearing).

It comes with doe foot applicator that makes the color spread evenly and precisely around the outer edges of your lips.

The texture of Nykaa Molten Matte Lip and Cheek Color is creamy and the formula is weightless. It feels so light and comfortable as if you haven’t worn anything on your lips. Due to the presence of Argan oil and shea butter in it, your lips do not feel dry. But to keep in mind not to layer too much with it, just two swipes are enough. It does not accentuate fine lines even if the lips are not well hydrated. It blends flawlessly on the cheeks.

However, you have to be really fast while blending. It would be better and easy to do one cheek at a time. We can blend either using the fingertips or with a sponge to lighten the color.

About the pigmentation of this lip creme, yes it is intense with a single swipe and efficient to hide minor flaws on the lips. But since, it is meant to blend (for cheeks as blush), you cannot expect the color to be fully opaque. It gives a rich matte finish to the lips upon drying in a few seconds. It is not transfer proof though and stays for 3-4 hours without disturbing.

Overall – The Nykaa Molten Matte Lip and Cheek Color 08 (Monica) is bright red color with warm undertones, a light weight creamy texture with powder matte finish to the lips and good staying power.

Good about the product

  1. Precise applicator
  2. Shade Monica 08 is a Pretty bright red color
  3. Suitable for light to medium skintones
  4. Can be used as blush and eyeshadow
  5. Weightless creamy formula

Not so good about the product

  1. Transfers lightly.
  2. The color is slightly restricting.

The Nykaa Molten Matte Lip and Cheek color is surely a good buy due to its versitality if you want to give it a try once.

Shall I buy it again?
