Nykaa Insider: I Peeped Into My Coworkers' Desks Because I’m Nosy

Office girls, what do you keep on your desk? A hot cuppa, magazines strewn here and there, some cute stationery, perhaps? Well, at the Nykaa HQ, where we, of course, dabble in beauty and fashion, spotting a flat-and-almost-finished lipstick, mini parfum, and the latest liquid highlighter is routine. As you’d imagine – cut to scene: the ‘clackers’ swiping on mascara as Miranda Priestly struts into the office – a beauty e-commerce workspace warrants a cosmetic overload, with products spilling onto desks and beyond.

To give you a lil’ sneak peek, I thought, why not let you in on our workstations? I did some investigating and captured my findings just for you. So, without further ado, here’s what the Nykaa Army has been gatekeeping, i.e. beauty essentials that have secured a permanent spot on their desks.

Me, Myself, and I

“Truth be told, I don’t clutter my workspace; AirPods, a creamy blush, a volumising mascara, high-shine gloss, that’s about it. Come summer, I love swiping blush along the bridge of my nose and cheeks – flushed perfection. Then some mascara for drama (which takes me from desk to drinks in no time), and gloss is the cherry on top. Since my work look is minimal and barely there, these three beauty essentials are all I need. I’m also a sucker for homegrown offerings, so I stock up on the newest, hottest picks from made-in-India brands. Colorbar’s Zoom & Whoosh Mascara lends a fluttery finish in a single swipe, Typsy Beauty’s blush is a collector’s item, and the Diam Beauty Wet Lip Glaze smells like a million bucks.”

Gizelle: The SEO Ninja

“I’m going to be brutally honest – the office is freezing. So, naturally, my skin is parched and patchy, which explains why I need multiple moisturisers on hand. Khadi Naturals’ Nourishing Skin Cream promises all-day hydration for severely dry skin, the FAE Beauty Mango Lip Balm heals chapped lips and offers SPF 20 protection, and Cetaphil’s Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion packs a punch, replenishing dehydrated skin for 48 hours. My go-tos, office and beyond.”

Clara: The Meme Queen

“Office calls for minis – the full-sized versions sit pretty at home. Let’s just say my work beauty essentials are an extension of their larger counterparts, super compact and convenient. While the Better Body Bombay Energizing Body Lotion restores moisture loss (ugh, office temp), Nykaa Cosmetics’ Matte To Last Liquid Lipstick is the perfect pick-me-up on dull days. Meanwhile, Versace’s Eros Eau de Toilette perfume has me smelling divine for hours on end. Yes, it’s a men's fragrance, but I love me some oriental, intoxicating notes.”

“Lips don’t lie – and I’m all about tending to my pucker. Girls, can we unanimously agree that there’s nothing quite like topping up lip balm or oil; a nourished, quenched pout in a single swipe! NIVEA’s 24H Melt-In Moisture Balm is a constant at home, in my handbag, and on my work desk; it delivers instant hydration with a hint of tint. Then, LAMEL’s All In One Tinted Lip Plumping Oil is for some extra shine and a mood boost, while Fenty’s Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer quickly takes me from desk to drinks.”

Surabhi: The Sassy Advisor

“Let’s begin with the NIVEA Fresh Comfort Deodorant, shall we? It smells crisp and aquatic, and despite being long-lasting, I prefer spritzing it on a second time to refresh myself on a hot, muggy day. Moving onto the WishCare Invisible Gel Sunscreen, which is ultra-lightweight, seeps into the skin, and more importantly, doesn't leave a white cast. Last but not least, Elle 18’s Color Pops Matte Lipstick has my heart. It’s super affordable and decently pigmented, and I swear by the shade B4 Almond Butter, a warm-toned brown nude.”
