Nudus Handcrafted Lip Euphora Lipsticks

I’ve been getting lots of requests for more natural and eco-friendly makeup which is both exciting and relieving because I too am finding my interests move more towards eco-friendly, organic products. It’s a booming area in the beauty industry and I’m discovering new brands every week. Today I’m going to share with you one of those recent discoveries, Nudus.

Nudus is a certified organic, Australian-made brand that currently has 10 lipsticks in their range. That’s it, just 10 lipsticks. They have worked hard to perfect their handcrafted lipsticks so I’m very interested to see how well they perform. I have two of them to review and swatch for you, Bitter Sweet and Halo. 

My Review

  • The sleek white plastic packaging is square shaped with rounded corners. It’s minimalistic and the small, black ‘nudus’ branding is discrete by being on just one side of the lid. It’s a sturdy package with a lid that clicks into place and doesn’t come off when tumbling around in my handbag. Even though it’s white packaging, it wipes clean to look spotless no matter how much I trash it.
  • When you take the lid off the silver bullet surround has a black  printed sketch of a woman. This is the same sketch that carries across all their packaging and lipsticks. It’s not really my kind of thing but it’s a unique touch and it’s hidden under the cap so it’s fine for me. If it were on the outer casing I probably wouldn’t use it in public.
  • The contents are 4g which is a standard amount for a lipstick bullet.
  • Even though the bullets are hand-crafted they still have a smooth shape with slant tip for easy application.
  • Both lipsticks I tried had great staying powder and hardly moved from where I placed them. They did transfer off my lips a little bit while eating, drinking and I wouldn’t say they are kiss-proof but they are definitely stubborn. I found myself only reapplying after eating/drinking.
  • The application did feel a little dryer to apply than some other lipsticks, however they also felt more nourishing to my lips, and in the case of Halo it felt creamy, throughout the day.
  • One application delivered opaque, full-coverage colour.
  • There is a tiny bit of a sweet scent when you smell it straight from the bullet but I don’t notice any scent during application or while wearing the lipsticks.
  • Most importantly, these lipsticks had no disgusting taste. Actually, they had no taste at all. One of my biggest pet peeves with lipsticks is having that awful chemical after-taste so I was very happy these didn’t have that … probably because there aren’t any icky chemicals.

Swatches – Bitter Sweet (left) and Halo (right)

Bitter Sweet

A burnt orange shade with a dry, semi-matte finish. Mostly masked the imperfections on my lips.

Swatch – Bitter Sweet

Halo

A creamy, muted pink shade with a semi-matte. This one did accentuate the fine lines and imperfections in my lips so I recommend exfoliating or using a lip primer before applying.
