Hello pretty ladies,
Today’s review is about Nudestix Lip and Cheek Pencil in the shade “Whisper.” Though the brand has introduced it as a multipurpose stick for lips and cheeks, I found it workable for lips only and will be sharing my experience as a lip product. Let’s explore it in detail.
Product Description: An extra creamy, soft feeling lip liner, lip color and cheek cream “all-in-one” that offers excellent color payoff, coverage and blendability. Contains lip and skin moisturizing ingredients such as shea butter, and Vitamin E; as well as peptides to add youthful plumpness. These fun and sassy touch n’go makeup stix provide a quick and easy n*de look, but better for all faces in all places. A long-lasting, multitasking pencil that delivers natural-looking coverage and ultra-creamy, soft color and liner for cheeks and lips. Formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
- Vitamin E: Acts as a natural moisturizer and antioxidant.
- Shea butter: Works as an emollient and anti-inflammatory.
- Peptides: Volumize and moisturize.

My Experience with Nudestix Whisper Lip + Cheek Pencil:
Nudestix Lip and Cheek pencils come as chubby, wooden and sharpen-able pencils. They are extremely lightweight. Though the plastic cap closes tight, I find it risky to dump this pencil in a shoulder bag, which already contains a lot of stuff and the cap can loosen there, leading to product wastage. These lip and cheek pencils are easy to use. but come with the hassle of sharpening.
The formula is definitely creamy if we compare it to regular lip pencil or lip crayon formulas. The shade “Whisper” is a n*de shade with a matte finish. The formula is neither moisturising but I didn’t find it drying either. The formula and consistency is soft and glides on easily with effortless blending. Infused with Shea and Vitamin E, it soothes the lips yet won’t heal parched lips.
On the lips, you can easily outline with the tip and fill in within no time for a perfect look. It gives complete opacity with 2-3 swipes, hiding lip pigmentation. It doesn’t feather and looks neat all the time over the wearing hours. The longevity is great; 5-6 hours on average. However, it gets a bit drying over time and that can be solved with a top coat of clear lip balm. It doesn’t fade in patches or settle into fine lines.
As a cheek product, I found the idea of “cheek pencil” not so workable. The formula is definitely soft and blend-able yet working with pencil on cheeks gives a streaky finish and consumes a lot more time than a regular cheek product. And even after all that, the results aren’t as flawless as desired. It is fragrance free and formulated without harmful chemicals.
Summing up pros and cons:
Pros of Nudestix Whisper Lip + Cheek Pencil:
- Creamy, soft, blend-able formula.
- Easy to use.
- Long wearing; average 5 hours.
- Infused with shea and vitamin E.
- Formulated without harmful chemicals.
Cons of Nudestix Whisper Lip + Cheek Pencil:
- Steep price tag for a lip pencil/crayon.
- Not too hydrating or moisturising, so gets drying and uncomfortable over the hours.
- Not too successful as a cheek product.
Would I Recommend Nudestix Whisper Lip + Cheek Pencil?
I am a lipstick lover. I like experimenting with new products, but for $24, I will pick a lipstick over a lip pencil/crayon. I will recommend to those who can work with n*de shades comfortably.
