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. 

Lip Glace Nude

Part tint, part gloss, this hydrating lip gel is the non-sticky lip product we’ve all been waiting for. The smooth formula glides onto lips, delivering pigment, shine, and a cocktail of hydrating ingredients to keep your lips feeling every bit as soft as they look.
