Handcrafted Ayurvedic Lips: Nūdus Australia
Updated: Sep 30, 2019
I don't know about you, but I have tried SO many natural lip products...and not just because I am a makeup artist, but because lipstick can accomplish so much! It can complete an outfit, become a signature look.
But it can also jeopardize the health of your lips.
Nūdus Australia however, can give you a coveted signature look AND nourish your lips at the same time.
It took two years to develop their intelligent Lip Euphoria formula, "a superior blend of 27 active naturals. A specially designed tasteful formula incorporating super foods, antioxidants, vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K, essential fatty acids and high-end anti-aging ingredients to keep your lips soft and help protect them from environmental stress." It's packed with food grade ingredients that the body recognizes and utilizes for a healthy smile.
Upon visiting their website, I loved the info I was greeted with when first opening their About page. They give ownership of their lipstick to women everywhere:
About us is really all about you…….
I am an intelligent forward thinking woman making my mark on this world, understanding the value and importance of health. I know what I want and demand only the best. I am making better choices.
I use nūdus ……
It’s who I am
I ordered my selections from my friends at The Choosy Chick. I was immediately impressed with the color and texture of these lovely lippies! The colors were vibrant and eye-catching, and they applied like (maybe even better than) my favorite lip balm!
I typically go for a softer eye look, and a bolder lip color on a daily basis, so I chose Survivor and Ruby Rose (they were out of Revenge, which is still a color I really want).
Survivor is a vibrant electric pink with more of a satin finish. Typically lipsticks with a satin finish will need to be reapplied after eating/drinking. This was true of this color. I loved that my lips were still stained from the original application, and I could've easily gotten away with only reapplying my favorite lip balm or lipgloss. This color is properly named as it radiates a sense of empowerment and confidence.
Ruby Rose is more of a matte finish, so of course it wears longer. It is a rich, raspberry red that transitions well for day or night wear. A great red for most skin tones, and long wearing from its matte finish. Again, my lips were stained for some time after first application, and I did not feel the need to reapply throughout the day--even after eating. Those who have jobs that require a lot of talking or you drink coffee/tea throughout the day, may need to reapply eventually.
As a long time believer in the efficacy of ayurveda (meaning "life wisdom"), I was excited to learn that Nūdus implements those practices into their formulations:
"nūdus is handcrafted with beautiful certified organic ingredients and combines bioactive ancient ayurvedic colours and extracts made from flowers, fruits, herbs and minerals with organic cold pressed oils including pumpkin, kiwi fruit, raspberry, pomegranate, argan and moringa. This makes for a nutritious cocktail of moisture and beauty."
You can truly tell the difference both in color and wearability. The Nūdus Australia Lip Euphoria formula is well named, and truly nourishing to the lips, while adding a punch of color that will be remembered.
