I’ve read a number of reviews about Nudestix from British beauty bloggers, but only recently was able to pick them up, when they launched at Sephora. The concept behind Nudestix is that almost everything is in crayon form, the only exceptions being their mascaras. Each product comes in a Nudestix case, that has a mirror on the inside of the lip, and includes a pencil sharpener. I picked up 3 products from the line, the Concealer Pencil in Light 2, Magnetic Eye Colour in Spirit and the Lip + Cheek Pencil in Whisper.
Concealer Pencil in Light 2 – Of the 3, this is probably the one that I expected to like the least. I haven’t had a lot of luck with concealer pencils, the ones that I have tried, have tended to be dry and not blend well. This on the other hand is a great concealer pencil! It’s super creamy, conceals spots and redness on my face with ease, and lasts all day. I don’t use it for dark circles, but the skin under my eyes is very dry, so I tend to avoid anything other than liquid concealer. I’m actually going to pick up a darker shade during the Sephora sale, to try as a contour I like it so much!
Magnetic Eye Colour in Spirit - I’m a sucker for eyeshadow sticks, they’re my favourite go-to quick eye look! I was drawn to this gorgeous smokey quartz colour immediately, because it’s different (well slightly different) from my standard bronze and taupe go-to shades. As with the concealer, it’s super creamy and has some serious staying power. It can also be built up nicely, without getting chunky, so it looks great as both a sheer wash of colour and as a more built up smokey eye.
Lip + Cheek Pencil in Whisper – Very rarely do I find that dual purpose products, are actually great at both purposes, so I was super interested to see how this lip & cheek pencil performs. The trend of creamy pencils continues with this stick, though this doesn’t have the same lasting power as the other two, it doesn’t seem to set the same way. On the lips, it doesn’t feel drying and I like that it can easily used to both line and fill in the lips. It just isn’t a stand out lip product, especially compared to something like the Clinique Chubby Stick for Lips. For me, where this product does shine is on the cheeks.Because it’s so creamy, it’s easily to blend into the skin , it’s the perfect pinky-nude flush, and sets much better on the cheeks than it does on the lips.
Overall, I’m super impressed with the NudeStix and will definitely be picking up a couple more during the upcoming Sephora Sale!
Have you tried any of the Nudestixs?
