No ingredient list is mentioned on the packaging of these mini lipsticks, not too sure about the full sized ones though.
As the lipstick I have is a mini version of So Matte! Lipsticks, it comes in a tiny all black colored tube with the brand name written on them. The base of the lipstick has a colored sticker, mentioning the number of lipstick but not the name. The bullet of the lipstick is also adorably cute. The full packaging is actually the size of my small finger which makes it super convenient to travel with.
My Experience with Nykaa So Matte Lipstick Trusty Rusty:
The shade Trusty Rusty is categorized as a part of the Reds in the mini collection. The color is a rusty red which does look good on fair skin tones. The color looks kind of similar to Sugar Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick-28, also named as Trusty Rusty. The Sugar cosmetics one being more on the red side. As this is not a pure red, this one is comparatively easier to wear even during day time, though it might not be everyone’s choice of an everyday color.
Texture wise, the shade is similar in the formulation as other shades in the collection. It is creamy to apply, but is non-shiny and dries matte. The formula is very pigmented and easy to wear. It does not dry lips too much. I did feel slight dryness, but nothing that makes me feel uncomfortable.
As compared to the shade ‘Notorious Red’, the shade Trusty Rusty has slightly less staying power. The color fades from the inner sections of the lips even after a couple of glasses of water or some coffee. Thought it is easy to re-apply the color, but reapplication over an already present layer of color makes it slighly drier.
Though the color is beautiful, I am not very impressed with the way it looked on me. It is not a very flattering color for me. I am glad that these lipsticks are available in a smaller version, this makes me spend lesser amount of money and try more shades from the collection.For those who are a fan of Red lipsticks and want to try a color that is not a pure red but a different shade of red, this is a good option.
