Rated 4.55 out of 5 stars
I own these in Pixi, Belle and Purity, and let me tell you- they are fantastic. They glide on SO easily and are fully opaque. There is no patchiness, tugging, nadda! Oh and they do not bleed at all or settle into lip lines which is a huge deal for me.
Now, these are matte, but they are not as long lasting as the liquid mattes that dry down. However, these DO dry down but do not feel as drying and stiff as liquid lipsticks. Anyways, the point I'm getting to is that if you eat something, it will wear off slightly (only slightly!!) on the inner lips, so you will have to reapply, but with drinking I noticed that it does not transfer onto cups or bottles which is fantastic! So even though they don't last as well through food as some liquid lipsticks do, the comfort and actual application of this product trumps all the negative aspects it has (only saying negative as I know some people may see it as that, however I don't see anything negative about reapplying maybe 1-2x per day).
My lips are quite pigmented depending on how they feel lol so they range from a soft pink to a medium berry pink. Over my lips, each color looks as described:
Pixi- True nude, will probably look the same as your skintone if you are light skinned (I am fair, so it's still nude for me but not so nude that it looks like concealer on my lips- it's a nude with a brown undertone, very pretty)
Belle- True pink nude, it looks super soft and delicate on my lips. It is darker than pixi but still a nude, but more of a mauve/pink nude.
Purity- This is a subdued medium plum-pink-nude. It's actually a shade or maybe two shades darker than my natural lip color. I added a photo of me wearing this so you can see how it looks on the lips (and how nicely it applies!)
I love Nudestix eye pencils and am a sucker for makeup in this form, as I find it easier to apply amd easier to travel with. I purchased the Sweet Cheeks and Kiss (and Pulse in the Gel lip) and wasnt overly impressed. In terms of color, these mattes are nice and pigmented, as you would expect for a matte. I found Sweet Cheeks to be too bright on me, so she is going back. Kiss is a great pink-nude (no rude on me!) although mine arrived witg the tip broken off, which I don't love. Both of the mattes are fairly comfortable on although they never fully dry down so expect a bit of tackiness (which is probably why they are more comfortable than many mattes that dry down fully). Unfortunately, that means the wear time is not great. I put Sweet Cheeks on just before a meeting at 11, had a coffee (no visible transfer, which made me hope for a long wear time) and a yogurt for lunch, and as you can see in my pic, only the outer portion survived. I suppose if you are suuuuper careful, you might be able to have it survive a meal, but I wouldn't wear this on a date or an outing as I would feel the need to constantly reapply. All that said, I am keeping Kiss because I think she's a great color on me and I struggle to find pinks that don't clash with my pink cheeks. I do think the colors look quite different from how they appear on Ulta and Nudestix's websites, so if you can, try them in person. As much as I love supporting women-owned brands, I'm disappointed Nudestix has not changed their practices with regard to excess packaging. Yes, it's nice to have a little mirror and I try to find ways to repurpose the metal cases these come in, but it is really unnecessary and inevitably, they will end up in landfills. Couldn't they at least offer the option of no case? Maybe a thin cardboard one that's recyclable/biodegradable?

Love this product. Makes for an easy natural look. Wish it had more colors as I would like a little rosier color that isn't too dark.

The color "Kiss" was perfect with just enough color to show up.

Such a cute and fun product! I love the idea of being able to use it for multiple purposes. I'm a huge fan of adding the shade colour to my eyes/cheeks/lips, etc. to make for a more natural look. The reason this lost points was because it wasn't quite pigmented enough for my cheeks, and it got a bit clumpy on my lips after some wear. I still love it for a natural base of blush, and eye shadow!

Absolutlely smashing of a product. Felt smooth and weightless.

Great matte lip that's not drying, however it took about 7 uses for it to almost be empty. Pricey for what it is, would consider buying on a Christmas sale from website

Love the color and feel of this. Doesn't make my lips feel dry.

I recently had the opportunity to try out the nudestix Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in the shade Sunkissed Pink, and I must say, I'm quite impressed with its performance. This versatile product is designed to be used on both the lips and cheeks, making it a convenient and multipurpose addition to any makeup routine.
First and foremost, the color Sunkissed Pink is absolutely beautiful. It's a warm, rosy shade that adds a natural flush of color to the cheeks and a lovely pop of color to the lips. The pigmentation is intense, and a little goes a long way, so you can achieve the desired effect with just a few strokes. Whether you prefer a subtle hint of color or a bolder look, this product can be easily built up to your desired intensity.
One of the standout features of this lip and cheek pencil is its matte formula. It glides on smoothly and dries down to a velvety matte finish, which helps to create a long-lasting look. I found that the staying power was quite impressive, even through meals and drinks. It didn't smudge or fade significantly, maintaining its vibrant color throughout the day.
What sets this product apart from others is its convenient pencil format. The pencil design makes it incredibly easy to apply precisely and quickly, allowing for effortless touch-ups on the go. The product comes with a sharpener, ensuring that you can maintain a precise tip for precise application whenever needed.
The texture of the nudestix Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil is creamy and blendable, making it a breeze to work with on both the lips and cheeks. It doesn't feel heavy or cakey, and it doesn't accentuate any dryness or fine lines. It has a lightweight feel that is comfortable to wear throughout the day.
Another notable aspect of this product is its packaging. The sleek and slim design of the pencil makes it easy to carry in your purse or pocket, making it perfect for touch-ups on the go. The pencil is also cruelty-free and formulated without parabens, sulfates,

I liked the creaminess of the product. It was long lasting and didn't feel drying. The colour options none were for dark skin so there its a little pale. Would purchase a different colour.

It stays for a long time. It does not melt. Easy to carry and use while travelling

Sunkissed is a perfect shade for my complexion. I have received so many compliments on this color. The best part is that it lasts and do t have to reapply often.
Ayezee from Toronto, ON
I used the lip mencil. It is matte and provides good coverage on my lips. I like the lip color shade. I found a bit drying on my lips so best is to apply lip balm for some time before using it.

I had the sunkissed pink shade and its such a perfect shade! It is very blendable and lasting, I truly love the formula!
MissLaura from Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.
This product is great. It's a beautiful colour. It applies beautifully. The thing I love most about this product is that it has multi uses. It's a lip liner, lip colour and blush!

I'd like to thank BzzAgent 🐝 and NUDESTIX Cosmetics 🤎 for kindly sending me this free product in exchange for my honest review!
All opinions are genuinely mine and based on my own personal experience (:
I received the shade "Sunkissed Pink" and found it LOVELY! Very neutral with a bit of a kick. It's like a burnt pink with brown undertones. If you wanna go neutral without overdoing it, yet still noticeable, THIS is the shade to go to. You can definitely "dress it" up or down depending on how you do the rest of your makeup 💄😊
Oh! I almost forgot to mention: it's super long lasting!! Mine survived on my lips for about 4+ hours, having gone through pastries, chips, and iced coffee 😁💋
I love the texture: it applies just like a lipstick, except it's a pencil format. Glides on smoothly and has a very beautiful matte finish. It is very pigmented and you don't need any more than a swipe to see the full color ♥️💖🤎
I really like the presentation too! It comes in a super cute black NUDESTIX tin and includes the pencil sharpener specifically for the product 🥰

This is a great smooth, creamy lip, pencil, great for lips or cheeks color. It's non-drying unlike most lipsticks that are matte. It also came with a nice tin case with a mirror on the inside of the lid. I also got a nice lip, pencil sharpener with it as well. Would definitely recommend this product for sure.
Dee from Ontario
I put this on my lips then put a gloss overtop and fell in love with the colour.
Missy from Toronto, ON
This pencil is so pigmented and creamy which makes application a smooth breeze. I get a lot of compliments on it and the staying power is great plus it doesn't smudge at all. I just love the case that it comes in with the sharpener and little mirror. I also appreciate that it leaves a truly matte finish without being drying.
danir from Ottawa, ON
First off, I love the colour. It's subtle but still wows. The lipstick is easy to apply and is long-lasting. I'm very happy with it. It stays on after drinking and eating, and never got on my teeth. It also didn't dry out my lips.
The only con, in my opinion, is that while the colour works well for both lips and cheeks, the pencil doesn't make it blend well on your cheek.
I would recommend this product.
Bee.beadz from Ontario, Canada
It is very pretty and I love the packaging and that is comes with a sharpener. I really loved the color. But the texture was too tacky for my liking. I have texture issues so it wasn't for me.
Aly from Toronto, ON
I use this product whenever I go out to events or a date and it just adds to the whole look when I dress up! I love that it doesn't smudge and the lip colour I got looks so good with my skin colour! It's a must buy item! Don't walk run to go get one asap!!

I used the product while going out in daylight to shop, and it looked fabulous on me. The application was nice and buttery/creamy without the need to heavily apply more to obtain the color. I loved the color and application. I didn't experience any drying or need for reapplication but I was not out for too long (maybe 3-4 hours). When I drank water, it was ok. I did use it again while going out to have a late dinner and the color was so versatile, I didn't have a problem with it in the morning or night. My only concern is that it is marketed for cheek and lip usage, however, I think that is very unhygienic. You shouldn't have your mouth/lip germs all over your cheeks!
