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.
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.
