This Makeup Brand Will Streamline Your Routine

There are two things I always look for when reviewing makeup products that really mark the difference between a ‘good’ product and a ‘really good’ product. Firstly, I love multi-use makeup, and secondly, I love products that streamline and speed up my morning beauty routine.  

So when I was recently introduced to Nudestix, I loved that (as the name suggests) every product is a ‘stick’ designed to be blended in with your fingers (or built-in brushes) so you can apply on-the-go, wherever you are. And to make the range even more travel-friendly, each product comes in a sleek black tin complete with a mirrored lid – basically the grown-up version of a pencil case. To add to that, the brand was founded by beauty royalty – Jenny Frankel, a former MAC Product Developer and Co-Founder of Cover FX, someone who really knows her stuff when it comes to formulating good makeup products.  

Needless to say, I was sold. These are my fave Nudestix products, so far. 

Nudies Blush in Sunset Strip

A favourite of beauty editors and makeup artists alike, this cream blush has quite an avid following. It has a really luminous dewy finish that makes skin look fresh and healthy. I love wearing this warm coral shade on my cheeks and eyes for a subtly matching look. 

Nudies All Over Face Colour Glow in Illumi-naughty

This highlighter is designed to be used on cheeks, lips, and eyes – it looks especially good when dabbed onto the tops of your cheekbones because the cream formula really melts into skin and gives a natural-looking dewy sheen. 

Nudies Bronze in Sunkissed

This warm brown bronzer is a one-stop shop to recreating a healthy-looking summer glow (pat it on your nose and buff with the included stippling brush for a safely sunburned effect!), and also serves as a contour if you’re after a more defined, sculpted look. 

Nudies Tinted Blur

This blurring concealer stick is perfect for subtly enhancing skin on no-makeup days or when you don’t want to wear a heavy foundation. Dot it over blemishes for coverage, or sheer across skin for a subtle tint with a soft matte glow. 

Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in Purity

Available in 13 shades, this lip crayon also doubles as a brilliant, long-lasting blusher. Its creamy consistency is easy to blend and the strong pigment provides a durable stain of colour. I’m obsessed with this shade – a dusky rose that’s perfect for everyday wear. 

Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm in Pulse

If you like a glossy finish to your lips and a dewy sheen on your cheeks, then this is the product for you. Perfect for adding sheer colour that is all about texture but doesn’t compromise on richness of pigment.
