If you’ve never labelled your BFF ‘basic’ for being obsessed with Avocado Toast, or walked into a Friday night party, exclaiming ‘It’s LIT!’ out loud, are you even a millennial? Don’t even get us started on the term ‘FOMO’ (that’s ‘Fear of Missing Out’ in case you didn’t know), because attending social events is basically a sport, we’re very passionate about. You know what else we’re obsessed with? LIPSTICKS! Which is why we’re ecstatic that Nykaa has decided to launch a set of lipsticks that’s as vibrant and colourful as the millennial lingo. The all new Nykaa Get Set Matte! Demi Matte Lip Creams set comprises of 12 deliciously creamy, almost buttery-soft shades, all with a lush demi-matte finish and intense colour payoff. They’re so light and comfortable on the lips, it’s almost as if you’ve got nothing on them. Oh, and they’ll stay up to six hours on your lips, which means you can sip on as many cocktails before you have to dash to the ladies’ room for a quick touch up. For a demi-matte, that’s solid. But let’s not forget the best part — the shade names are words that are pretty much all over your Instagram captions. Consider us sold!

But before you go about adding them to your cart, here’s a fun thought: why not match your lips to your upcoming plans? Here’s how:

Festival Fun with Plums

If you think music festivals are just for catching your favourite musician live, think again. It’s also for gorging on drool-worthy snacks, meeting fellow fans and dressing cute! We’re talking sparkly tops, glittery eye makeup and tons of layered jewellery! If you’re heading to one soon, you’ve got to add one of the plum shades in this collection to your makeup bag!

Our picks: Fomo, G.O.A.T and Bounce

A Night Out in Fiery Reds

It’s not a girl’s night out if you and the girls are not dressed in your finest. You can never go wrong with an LBD (a night out staple, am I right, ladies?) and fierce red lips. The beauty of these demi-matte reds is that there are three universal shades that will go with almost any skin tone. So, whether a maroon hue works best for you, or terracotta red, there’s something for everyone in there.

Our picks: LIT, Yaaas and Slay

Brunching with Browns

Nothing brings out the glow in us brown-skinned beauties like a brilliant shade of brown. And that’s why it’s our choice pick for brunches. You get to look chic in a lovely shade of chocolate on the lips, and you can sip on as many mimosas as you want without worrying about your lipstick fading out in a grotesque manner. Oh, and you won’t even have to go heavy on the makeup, because these browns will help you look amazing, even on your laziest days. We say, get ‘em all!

Our picks: Goals, Basic and Thirsty

Netflix and Chill in the Nude

Why spend all your money on expensive popcorn at the movies, when you and your beaux can spend a cosy evening at home, catching the latest flicks on Netflix. We’re sure you look ravishing in a brightly coloured lip, but you’d want to go for a ‘my lips but better’ look with the perfect nude lipstick instead. With the nudes in this collection, you don’t even have to worry about them looking too ashy or light — they’ve got just the right amount of pink and brown in them.

Our picks: Bae, Squad and On Fleek
