Time to Hoard More Matte Lipsticks! 6 Brand-New Nudestix Shades Are Coming
Of all the matte lipsticks on the market, I can confidently say that Nudestix makes some of my absolute favorites. Millennial sisters Ally and Taylor Frankel have mastered a velvety-matte formula that glides on like butter and lasts all damn day. On top of offering insanely pigmented colors, Nudestix lipsticks won't make your lips feel dry or papery compared to other buzzy formulas.
I always stock up on Stiletto (matte red orange) and Purity (matte ballerina pink). So when I found out that Nudestix would be teaming up with six beauty influencers to create six brand-new colors, I knew that lipstick-lovers everywhere, myself included, would be in for a real treat.
The brand tapped a diverse group of talent — including Samantha Ravndahl (@ssssmanthaa), Jaleesa M (@saythelees), and Cydnee Black (@cydbee) — to create bespoke Nudestix shades for its Influencer Custom Shade Palette. The limited-edition lipstick collection caters to just about every beauty style. It features dainty corals and dusty pinks, which are perfect everyday colors. For Fall (or date night), it also boasts trendy burgundy and brown sticks. Each shade lasts like a tattoo and won't budge or smudge for up to eight hours — seriously.
The collection ($59) goes on sale at select Sephora locations as well as Ulta.com and Macys.com on Aug. 15. If you're thinking of snapping it up, we suggest you be swift. These influencers have over 3.6 million combined followers, so we expect the new kit to go fast!

Samantha wanted to create a grungy color that was flattering on a wide range of skin tones, so Freckle was born. The burgundy hue is extremely versatile and creates a dramatic vampy pout on fair complexions, but also doubles as a subtle cinnamon shade on dark skin.
For her bespoke Nudestix color, Lynette Cenee tapped inspiration from her hometown of Arizona. She created a matte nude with flecks of gold to match the color palette of the Sanoran desert.
Karen Yeung created a peachy lipstick for those days when you want a little pop of color that isn’t too dramatic. "I wanted something I could wear everyday but that still stood out. Baby K compliments any makeup look, but can still be worn on its own," she said.
Donovan wanted to create something timeless, so he formulated a universally-flattering dusty nude that works for a variety of complexions and for any occasion.
Jalessa's custom color, Go Girl, is a pale rose shade made to represent confidence. It’s the perfect color for that "your lips but better" look.
Cydnee credits her mom as the inspiration behind the color Joyce, and even named it after her. She explained, "I'm calling my lip color Joyce because my earliest memory of makeup is my mom wearing favorite chocolate brown lipstick. I wanted to create a color that brings back those nostalgic feelings, and name it after my favorite person, my mom!"
