The warm weather is coming. Jackets and boots are coming off and it's time to transition to summer makeup. The new multitasking Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balms from NUDESTIX ($28) are just what you need as we move into the summer months.
These gel pencils are made with 30% plant based oils that are incredibly nourishing and leave a great dewy finish without being sticky. The darker shades in particular leave a nice stain on the lips that will last through your lunch, dinner and/or drinks.
There are some really great colour choices in this range and the NUDESTIX team was kind enough to gift me with two of them. You don't have to put down you berry lip colours because the shade Wicked is a gorgeous glossy berry that can totally be worn all year round with its translucent finish. Posh on the other hand is a great nude that is great on its own or even dabbed on top of a brighter colour to add shine.
What really excites me about these pencils is that they are absolutely gorgeous on the cheeks and eyes, as well as lips.
Out with strobing and in with glossing! After a recommendation from the NUDESTIX team, I also apply Posh on the tops of my cheek bones for a glossy highlight that that doens't move or feel slimy/sticky. I also use this on my eyelids to get that unique "wet" eyeshadow look without completely breaking down my mascara.
On my list to purchase next is the shade Fate, which is almost completely colourless and will be even better on my cheeks and lids, and to layer over other products.
Have you tried these new Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balms?
