Love is Louder with NUDESTIX


Last Friday, I had an awesome time meeting up with Jenny Frankel, the founder of NUDESTIX to play with the new Intense Matte Color Lip + Cheek Pencils and learn about their Love is Louder campaign. As many of you know she and her two daughters, Ally and Taylor created NUDESTIX to speak to the millennial generation looking for natural, easy to do, on the go makeup.  nudestix-matte-lip

Five nudes and three bolds make up these new beautiful, full impact Intense Matte Color Lip + Cheek Pencils that go on so smooth and last all day. Unlike most matte lippes this formula isn’t drying and can be used as a lipstick, lip liner, and cheek blush all in one pencil.  Shade Purity (mauve nude) is the best seller and looks good on everyone! Origins had a matte stick similar to this color when I was in High School and then they discontinued it and I was devastated. I haven’t found anything close to it until now.

Also you know how much I love a good cause! NUDESTIX is partnering with Love is Louder, a project of The Jed Foundation created with actress Brittany Snow (where are my Guiding Light fans! — probably a lost reference on anyone that didn’t have immigrant grandparents), to spread love and support anyone feeling mistreated, misunderstood or alone. Whether it’s depression, bullying, anxiety or an off day it’s reminding people they are not alone and love is louder. NUDESTIX is sharing that message of love and donating $5 from the sale of their best-selling Lip + Cheek Pencils, ‘Love’ and ‘Kiss’ to the cause. (I’m wearing Kiss in the first picture above in this post). This brand is all about embracing your imperfections and taking a more natural and healthy approach to beauty and makeup, that it’s such a wonderful collaboration. NUDESTIX has committed to donating $25,000 this year and I encourage everyone to support them.
