One of the things I like about doing these posts is coming across products which I had forgotten about.
Nudist Colorbalm Stick 7 (née Nudist Lip Shine) by W3ll People is one of the first W3ll People products that I purchased. A kind of a lipstick/balm hybrid; Nudist 7 combines a (very) subtle hint of colour with a high sheen and richly moisturising finish.
Nudist 7 is most definitely nude. A pinky toned nude with slight blueish undertones that, despite it’s somewhat infuring title, has very little colour giving properties – the merest hint; the other sticks in the range (of which there are 6) do have a little more pigment. With a high shine finish that has a very slight frosted appearance, Nudist is long lasting and works well both on its own or layered over another product.
Rich in rosehip oil which contains essential fatty acids, Nudist hydrates the lips whilst nourishing and soothing them with chamomile and healing aloe, whilst Mica and omega oils provide the shine. There is a slight scent to the colourstick that is described as a vanilla mint, although I find it (like most of the other W3ll People products) is more a general herbally scent – not unpleasant but definitely healthy smelling!
I have used Nudist 7 on everything from corporates to bridal make-ups. It is pretty high sheen so when using it on camera I tend to go easy on the application.

It’s not often I have found myself in this position but I haven’t used a Nudist Colorbalm Stick for absolutely ages and in all honesty I’m not sure I would re-invest. Once the stick was used up I didn’t replace it; with so many other similar products out there were more to try.
It also seems that W3ll People are currently unavailable in the UK and so I am not sure if or when it will be available on these shores in the future…
