Two consecutive blog posts! I’m on a roll! 😀 😀
Mattes are where it’s at lately with lipsticks. But, in the summer there’s nothing better than a pretty, glossy lip, amiright’? YES.
Glosses are not my cuppa’ tea. Most are sticky, and I don’t really like sticky things on my lips. But a lipstick that feels like a balm, yet leaves an oh-so-pretty shine that’s not sticky and doesn’t catch and stick to my hair on a windy day?
Nudestix comes in for the WIN you guys.
NUDESTIX Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balms $28.00 each
NUDESTIX Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balms are a super-moisturizing lip balm from the much loved -every-makeup-product-in-a-stick brand, which I personally LOVE. I really love the brand. I love the whole concept of minimal makeup in a stick. When they finally come out with a foundation, I’m going full throttle NUDESTIX you guys. What else do you need, right?
NUDESTIX Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balms are formulated with over 30% ultra-hydrating, lip-protecting plant lipids that are sourced from rapeseed, sunflower, cotton seed, and soybean, and vitamin E as an antioxidant. They are kinda’ awesome! They are so smooth, lovely, pigmented and last a not bad time for a shiny lippie. Kinda’ in love with them. Yup.
Haven is natural lip nude that’s perfection!
I used to be able to wear loads of nude lipstick shades in the past, but it’s oh so much trickier with grey hair now. Haven is perfect! Just enough peach to make it wearable for me! And for most people too I’m guessing.
Luxe is described as a just kissed fresh pink-nude, but to me it’s just an easy to wear light coral. Perfect for any day of the week!
Rebel is the perfect pink. PERFECT. It’s in my purse. Permanently. And I will replace it when I am done. #promise
Now to be honest, I haven’t tried these on my cheeks. I’m way too enamoured with how they wear and look on my lips and don’t want to share them with my cheeks, especially Rebel. Dudes, you see my cheeks-they are HUGE. I don’t want to waste any of these NUDESTIX Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balms’ goodness on those ample babies! LIPS ONLY. But, the texture does remind me of the Stila Convertible Colors just thinner and not so heavy feeling, so I bet they’d be awesome on the cheeks, because boy, do I love those too!
If you’re looking for the perfect summer lipstick, Rebel is what you need. If you STILL have ignored me and haven’t tried anything from NUDESTIX, please oh please get Rebel! And then come back here and let me tell you I TOLD YOU SO. 😛
Have you tried anything from NUDESTIX yet? Yeah, Yeah I know, I wish they’d ditch the container and sharpener they sell with every product too so that the price would drop. Maybe someday they will. In the meantime, I’m happy to support a Canadian brand that makes awesome products!
