If youve never labelled your BFF basic for being obsessed with Avocado Toast, or walked into a Friday night party, exclaiming Its LIT! out loud, are you even a millennial? Dont even get us started on the term FOMO (thats Fear of Missing Out in case you didnt know), because attending social events is basically a sport, were very passionate about. You know what else were obsessed with? LIPSTICKS! Which is why were ecstatic that Nykaa has decided to launch a set of lipsticks thats 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. Theyre so light and comfortable on the lips, its almost as if youve got nothing on them. Oh, and theyll 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, thats solid. But lets 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:
