Unlike the traditional Nudestix that comes only in the pencil form. These lip pens come in a plastic twist-up pen with a brush tip. With each twist, the product inside gets pushed up and into the bristles. The design is quite handy and I've had no problem with the twist-up mechanism.
The Lip Pen comes in two different formulations: gloss and matte. The gloss I have here is called "Nudity", which is a simple brownish nude gloss with a nice and lightweight formulation. The gloss feels quite minty and tingling on the lips, but not uncomfortably so.

I think these are fun additions to the core Nudestix line. The packaging is super convenient. Formulation-wise, the gloss is non-sticky and shiny. The matte formulation doesn't feel drying but accentuates dryness and wrinkles.
Nudestix is available online and instores at Sephora and select Urban Outfitters.
