Anti-Aging Treatment with Color
I consider Nudus lipsticks to be both makeup and an anti-aging treatment rolled into one.
Just take a look at the ingredient list below, and share in my excitement: organic shea butter, pumpkin seed oil, kiwi seed oil, turmeric extract…. These lipsticks don’t just look good on lips, they actively improve their look and health.

Organic Shea Butter is used to great effect in Nudus lipsticks. Their creaminess has a delectable moisturizing effect. Shea Butter is regenerative and protective—exactly what lips need to be their best.
Two other botanicals in the ingredient list caught my attention, as they’re both powerfully beneficial and (surprisingly) not commonly found in makeup formulations: kiwi seed oil and coral seaweed extract.
Kiwi seed oil is a nourishing moisturizer with high levels of two “good” essential fatty acids: alpha linolenic acid and linolenic acid. Beyond the fatty acids, kiwi seed oil also contains beneficial minerals, plus lip-loving vitamin C and Vitamin E… I don’t know if you’ve ever seen a kiwi seed, but these things are tiny. The seeds are carefully harvested then cold pressed.
Coral seaweed extract is a red algae rich in oligo-elements (iron, magnesium and zinc) and is both moisturizing and remineralizing. Although antioxidants are all the rage right now, don’t discount the benefit of remineralization; ingredients with remineralizing properties are especially helpful for aging skin.
Lipstick Performance & Wear
I absolutely love the texture and wear of Nudus lipsticks. It’s the perfect balance of creamy comfort and steadfast longevity.
Although I do reapply after eating, the lipsticks wear beautifully and don’t require a lip liner to stay put.
My shades, Halo and 27 Kisses, apply quite lighter than they look in stick form. See for yourself:
On the Nudus lipstick box, you’ll see a COSMOS Organic certification—they were the first in Australia to achieve that honor.
This organic certification requires not only full traceability of ingredients, but also transparency in how the ingredients are processed.
