NUDESTIX Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil


Nudestix Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil icon(0.10 oz.) retails for $24 USD ($28 CAD) and is available in 8 shades. They are said to be "a soft, non-drying matte lipstick, lip liner and cheek blush in an all-in-one pencil."

Purity is described as a natural lip flesh nude. [P]

"This ultra-long-wearing matte formula is waterproof, smudge-proof, soft, and non-feathering for up to six hours. Its intense pigment load and color provides lips with maximum smooth coverage."
For those that may not know, Nudestix iconis a Canadian brand that was created by two sisters, who are models and their mother, who has over 20 years of experience in the beauty world. The entire line is geared towards making minimal, no-makeup makeup easy while enhancing your natural features. All of their products are multipurpose, easy-to-use and are enriched with vitamins, antioxidants and moisturizers.

The packaging is a simple wooden crayon style pencil that does require sharpening and has no noticeable scent or taste. Each Nudestix iconproduct comes housed in a sleek, black metal tin that features a mirror and includes a sharpener that can also conveniently double as a cap for the pencil (if you take the original cap off, of course) which is incredibly handy for use on the go.




Purity is a medium-dark, natural rose with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish—it's definitely a "my lip color but better" type of shade. The texture is extremely light-weight, comfortable to wear and feel almost velvety when pressing your lips together. I found the formula really helped fill in fine lines and give my lips a smoother appearance. The color applied very smoothly and evenly without tugging or creating jagged edges and it had great, opaque pigmentation that didn't feather during wear. Purity lasted +5.5 hours before fading and felt neither hydrating or drying. (5/5)
ColourPop Frick 'N Frack was darker, more plum. Kat Von D Lolita was muted, more mauve. MAC Whirl was warmer, more brown. Sephora Collection Marvelous Mauve was warmer, more pink.

Overall, this is a great non-drying, comfortable formula—I really appreciate that it helps smooth lips and doesn't accentuate dryness, despite being having that velvety-matte finish. As I said before, all of the brands products are super convenient, especially since these pencils are suitable for both lips and cheeks. Whether you're looking for that perfect "my lip color but better" lipstick or you're just interested in the brand, I do highly recommend checking the Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencils iconout!
