In Detail Nicka K Velveteen Lipstick Raspberry Review, Swatches and My Experience
The packaging looks quite nice. Colour coded shell with transparent cap. Its different yet quite attractive. However I do have to mention that the plastic is not good quality. You can actually tell that the material feels inferior quality. Other than that, I really appreciate how they have put down the ingredients list on the lipstick itself.
Texture, Formula, Pigmentation, Finish
The lipstick glides on the lips really smooth. I love how it feels velvety. The formula isn’t really drying. At least I did not experience any drying effect on my lips while wearing it. Pigmentation wise, I have to say I am not super impressed. I have to swipe it at least 3-4 times in order to get the true colour on my lips. Also, if you have pigmented lips like me, you definitely need to swipe it at least 3 times. Finish is just like the name suggests. Its has a velvety or rather i’d say a soft matte finish. Its really comfortable to wear.
Shade Description – Nicka K Velveteen Raspberry
Raspberry is a beautiful warm berry red shade with slight yellow undertones. This is a red which would suit every skin tone equally. I love how the shade isn’t too loud yet not really subtle. Its just enough to make a statement while staying sophisticated.
Wearability, Transferability, Stay Power
I wore this shade for 3 hours without any fading. After 3 hours, this does start to fade starting from the centre of the lips. Therefore I am not that happy with the staying power of this lipstick. It does transfer slightly. Therefore you may want to keep it in your bag for touch ups. What I am really disappointed about is the fact that the lipstick does not fade evenly. Therefore whenever I wear this, I cannot NOT afford to carry it along for touch ups. Other than that, I have no issues with this lipstick.
Nicka K Velveteen Raspberry is a beautiful shade. It will compliment all skin tones. You can pull of a score of outfit combinations with this. I wish the pigmentation was a little bit better. Also the lasting power is a little off. Otherwise, rest of the features are upto the mark. I would say this is one of the very affordable soft matte lipsticks available out there. Definitely check it out if you’re looking for an affordable matte lipstick.

CONs of Nicka K Velveteen Lipstick Raspberry
1. Pigmentation needs some building up.
2. Doesn’t last very long.

1. Prep your lips properly to get a soft and smooth finish.
2. Swipe it several times in order to reveal the true colour.
3. You can also fill your lips with a good liner. In this case, you wouldn’t need to swipe the lipstick too many times.
4. Carry it along for touch ups.
5. Avoid oily meals or snacks otherwise this will fade sooner.
6. Use a decent makeup remover to remove the colour from your lips completely
