My official introduction to NUDESTIX was a couple months ago during my trip to Toronto for Generation Beauty. I’d heard a ton about the products before, but had never actually tried them myself. We were introduced to the new NUDESTIX Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balms by Taylor, one half of the amazing sister duo that created NUDESTIX. I went home with a couple different shades, and have since tried a couple others. The final consensus? These. Are. Amazing.
These are a balm-like gel formula that can be used for both lips and cheeks. I haven’t actually tried them on my cheeks yet, but am obsessed with them as a lip color. They have a glossy finish, but aren’t at all sticky, and they are super hydrating. They are formulated with plant lipids sourced from rapeseed, sunflower, cotton seed, and soybean as well as vitamin E, so my lips never feel dry or uncomfortable while wearing these.
I LOVE the level of pigmentation in these. They you can apply a couple layers to achieve full opacity, or you can just dot a little bit on and blend it in for a more sheer look. There are eight different shades available, and below I have:
- Pulse (a plum nude)
- Luxe (a pink nude)
- Rebel (a medium pink and my personal fave)
- Wicked (a berry)
These NUDESTIX products come in a cute little black tin, complete with a sharpener, so you don’t have to worry about finding one to fit these pencils. I absolutely love the packaging and just love everything about these lip + cheek balms! I honestly want to (and will, eventually, haha) own every single shade of these. Definitely a must-have for me.
Have you tried anything from NUDESTIX?
