Nudestix Makeup: Purity, Sin, Pulse, Kiss, Retro & Wicked Review and Swatches

I hope you've enjoyed my Nudestix 3-day marathon (1, 2). Today, let's wrap it up with the rest of my collection. 
I purchased all of these from ULTA. They can be purchased individually at Nudestix.

Sweet-Bittersweet-NotSweet

  Nudestix Everyday Nudes Set is Supersweet
Nudestix Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencils are Supersweet
Nudestix Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balms are Sweet
Nudestix Magnetic Matte Lip Colors are Sweet 

Nudestix Everyday Nudes at ULTA Beauty $24 (in Purity, Sin and Pulse)
This 3-piece kit lets you try THREE formulas Nudestix offers (matte, cream & gel). There really is a difference. In this kit, they give you their most popular matte shade, PURITY (Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil)! It wasn't until I tried it, that I fell in love. It looks really good on. I'm wearing it on my lips & cheeks below. I'm not a matte person, but I really love the formula Nudestix offers. It's not drying. It doesn't crack. It's creamy, stays put and feels great on the lips. The next formula is cream. In this kit, the shade they give you is SIN! To me, Sin is like a carnation pink. Nudestix describes it as Rose. Usually I don't go for that color, but it looks really good on. The cream formula feels just as good as the matte, but gives you a little more shine. The last formula is a GEL! In this kit, the shade they give you is PULSE, which is described as a Pretty Plum Nude! I would describe the gel formula as a lipstick + gloss feeling (not sticky). Nudestix describes their gel formulas as LIP BALMS. It gives you a wash of color & shine. I love all three formulas and I can't believe I'm saying this, but I super love the matte formula.

Nudestix Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in Purity And Kiss $24
This kit is no longer offered as a set, but can be purchased individually. This contained PURITY again. So I show you another picture of me wearing it below. This also contained KISS. KISS is described as a Just Kissed Rude Nude. It's pink. LOL To me, KISS is a lighter pink than SIN (above). There are 13 shades in Nudestix's Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil line, so there's a lot of colors to choose from. I love the formula, as I mentioned above. They work great on the cheeks & lips (as I'm wearing below). These kits also come with a sharpener. So you can sharpen these makeup crayons.

Nudestix Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in Retro $24
Another Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil I picked up was in the shade RETRO. RETRO is described as Matte Mid-tone Red Brown. I like dark lipsticks. Browns in the past have been really funny on me. Too brown and they make me look muddy. This has a hint of red, which makes it work on my complexion.

Nudestix Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm in Wicked $24
In the Everyday Nudes, I showed you a gel (PULSE). I received a deluxe sample (via Sephora) of another gel formula that is called WICKED. WICKED is described as bad blood. OK! LOL It's a wine purple plummy color. It looks great on and I love the gel formula for lips. Again, it's like lipstick + a gloss. Now when it comes to cheeks, the color is soft + glowy. It doesn't give you the same intense blush a matte cheek + pencil will give you. The result is still pretty, but different. I'm wearing WICKED on my lips & cheeks below. Remember this is a deluxe sample, but in the full size, you will receive the tin and a sharpener. There are 8 shades in this formula.

Nudestix Magnetic Matte Lip Color in Rose $24
Nudestix describes the Magnetic Matte formula as MATTE and LONG WEARING (9 hour wear). It also boasts that it's waterproof and non-feathering. This was another deluxe sample I received through a Sephora purchase. I have to agree with these claims. It adheres to the lips and doesn't budge. It also stayed put while drinking. ROSE is described as Think Mystic Meets Love. Ok! I prefer their Matte over the Magnetic Matte, just because there's a little more shine to the Matte. But these are nice.

After trying all of these formulas, I'm really impressed with Nudestix. Now that I understand their formulas, I can pick out additional colors I want. They're great for everyday wear. They're easy to apply. They're portable. I had to get a grasp of their formulas and I hope these reviews will help you.
