It has been a while since I last wrote about something. With the current Worldwide situation, it is being difficult for me to focus my mind on anything. Yes, like all the others I am home for the 21 day lockdown period but with a 6-month-old and no house help, it is really getting difficult to try something new and share my views regarding the same.
After 5 days of quarantine, I finally decided to get my life together and try something new and now after trying the product for almost 2 days and multiple ways, I think I am ready to share my experience about the same. Today’s review would be about ‘Nykaa Metallic Eyeshadow Thank U Next’. This is not just an eyeshadow but it is more of a dual performing product that doubles as a metallic lipstick as well.
I do like metallic liquid eyeshadows but to be honest I do not like metallic finish on my lips. This is the reason I was not too sure about buying this product when it was initially launched. Now, after trying the shade Thank U, Next, I do feel good about my purchase.
Read on the full review to know my full experience with this product.
Price: INR 625 for 5 ml of the product (BUY HERE)
Metallic is synonymous to being bold,fearless and each statement worthy shade is named after girls who embody these traits with their strong personalities. The shades names are inspired by their most distinct work which resonates with us all!
With its super flattering, pearlised finish, this metallic liquid lipstick can be dualed as an eyeshadow to add shine on the lids.. Now ignite your inner rockstar while flaunting those bold lips and lids.
No list of ingredients is mentioned on the packaging
The lipstick/liquid eyeshadow comes in packed in a pretty looking metallic pink outer cardboard box. The name of the lipstick and some other information about the product is mentioned on the outer box, but it does not have any information about the list of ingredients. The actual product is a plastic rectangular tube with a dual-colored metallic lid. The packaging looks very luxe and classy. It is a kind of product that will look beautiful on the vanity as a display piece. The tube is transparent and the color of the product can easily be seen from outside.
The outer box, as well as the lid, matches the actual color of the product which makes it even more pretty looking. The applicator has a hole in between it which helps in removing the excess product from the wand. The packaging is sturdy and completely travel-friendly.
My Experience with Nykaa Metallic Eyeshadow Thank U Next:
As I have already mentioned, this is a product that can be used both on the lips as well on the eyes and I have tried both. The shade Thank You, Next is said to be named after Ariana Grande and is a Brick Pink Metallic color which looks pretty whichever way you use it.
Thank You, Next as an eyeshadow:
It is a pink color and I personally am a fan of pink eyeshadows. It is a liquid formula that is easier to apply and blend as well. The formula is nicely pigmented but once blended it looses some of its intensity and a second layer is required. Once dried, the eyeshadow is budge-proof and does not crease. It is a color that can be used with both Indian as well as Western outfits. I have tried using it as an eyeliner as well and it works well in that situation too. The product can be applied using an eye brush or can also be directly applied using the wand given with the product.
Thank You, Next as a lipstick:
As a lipstick, the product looks slightly more metallic on the lips. It is easy to apply and does look pretty but once dried it tends to crumble a bit when lips are pressed against each other. The formula does not transfer and thus have a decent staying power.
Overall this is an average product for me. I am not too impressed with it but I do not like to apply metallic lips and I still liked the way this product looked on me, so it is certainly not a bad product. I selected the color Thank You, Next as it is pink and the only color I could have worn in a metallic finish. If you are a fan of metallic lips, then this lipstick line from Nykaa does have some beautiful shades to select from.
