Reviews by 3 Top Indian Influencers & Beauty Website

Shalini Srivastava was floored by the packaging of one of her favorite designers. Masaba nicely incorporates her uniqueness in the packaging of these lipsticks. The lipsticks themselves are all slightly on the glossier side and as they settle in – they end up being more of a demi-matte side. The range has a wide variety of lipstick suit all Indian skin tones.

Corallista swatches the 10 lipsticks that are part of her signature collection. She feels that the packaging is part of a collector’s collection due to their uniqueness. The shades are very moisturizing and glide well on the lips. Her favorite from the collection is Pataka – the name says it all. It is a rich and vibrant red. The formula feels extremely comfortable and gives the lips a nice plump look.

Himadri Patel feels the lipsticks are creamy and would be closer to a pigmented lip balm. They are moisturizing and have a pleasant scent to them. As a highlight, all the lipsticks have a matching nail polish.


This product can be purchased at Nykaa between INR 350 to INR 600 depending on the shade.
