Another day, another scoop on matte lippies. Can you tell I’m obsessed with them? I feel like my trivial mission to find the best lipstick is becoming a side career more than ever, haha! But joking aside, let’s talk about Nudestix Intense Matte Lip Cheek Pencil and see if it gets the elusive nod from moi.
This new collection, as the name suggests, is a two-in-one product for the lips and cheeks. It is available in eight shades, packaged individually in a tin container.
Although retractable mechanism would’ve been a far better option, each pencil comes with a sharpener. Raven is berry red while Purity is the classic mlbb (my lips but better).
Categorically, I wouldn’t call these “intense” because while they are decently pigmented, the shades and formula aren’t screaming in your face. They are creamy and non-drying which in my “little book of matte-ness” is commendable. They don’t stain the lips and has a wear time of about five hours sans meals. While they are positioned as multi-functional, I have reservation using them on my cheeks after swiping over my lips. It’s a personal pet peeve so take my word with a grain of salt.
Overall, these pencils are nice to own, very handy and yes, that tin container can be repurposed for something else (i.e jewelry or bobby pins storage).
