Matte Lipsticks without the dry, chapped lip look is what we’ve all been searching for since the trend popped up once again — and NUDESTIX hit the mark with their Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencils . If you aren’t familiar with the brand, its time to get acquainted with this easy to use, cruelty-free brand that makes makeup so simple and fun with its multi purpose pencils for eyes, lips and face.
NUDESTIX Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencils come in eight waterproof (and kiss proof colors) that go on like velvet and claim to last up to 6 hours without fading. They all come in their cute, on-the-go mirrored tin that stores a couple of pencils in your purse or bag for easy touch ups.
As with most matte lip colors, its recommended to buff your lips before applying so you get a smooth, long-lasting look so I made sure to gently exfoliate with some shea butter and a toothbrush so they were prepped and ready for color. Before coloring in my lips, I primed them with NUDESTIXs Blur Pencil, a multi-tasking pencil that minimizes pores, fine lines, and prevents feathering of color on the lips. This invisible pencil uses Hyaluronic acid spheres penetrate the skin and plump while Vitamin C and E soothe — all things my lips could appreciate.(Along with my forehead which has some lines Id like to hide)
I was able to try two colors from the Intense Lip + Cheek line, Belle (listed as a plum nude but leans toward a peachy color for me) and Raven ( described as a deep red on the Sephora site, but best described as a wine red on my lips).
I found the blur pencil allowed me to easily switch between colors without staining the lips and allowed the color to apply smoothly. The lip pencils went on like velvet, no tugging or pulling and didn’t zap the moisture from my already chapped-prone lips. I did not test the pencils as cheek color because I prefer a pressed powder for that and I would be afraid of not blending the pencil properly on my cheeks.
You can find NUDESTIX products available at Sephora and online at Beautylish.com. Each Intense Matte Lip +Cheek pencil retails for $24 each which is reasonable when you account for its multipurpose abilities as well as how long the product lasts.

Loving these pencils from @nudestix and playing with the matte lip color trend. ?No icky dry lips with these –just smooth, velvety color. And the blur pencil helps minimize those giant pores on the face! ?? Raven is definitely a more dark, berry color while belle is more of a peachy pink. I’ll need to check out the other colors they have! #nudestix #mattelipstick #makeup #crueltyfree #crueltyfreebeauty #bblogger #beauty #instabeauty #mattelipcolor #gonudebutbetter #meetyourmatte #mattelips
