If you watch my vlog channel or follow me on social media, you might know that I was invited to a NUDESTIX event a week ago to learn about the brand as well as play with some new product launches.
Let me just say I’m obsessed! Yes, I was gifted 4 items from the new launch, but I also ran off to Space.NK the following day and bought 3 more products and another 2 yesterday. This is how much I love NUDESTIX. I’ve even gotten Carla from FashionMavenMommy addicted.
I had the pleasure of having Ally, one of the founders walk me through the whole line. Ally explained to me how she and her sister, Taylor wanted makeup that was wearable, natural, and easy. Their mom, Jenny who is a chemical engineer helped develop the formulas and they created NUDESTIX. A brand that allows you to show your natural beauty. It’s all about no makeup makeup, which is my favorite type of makeup.
For students and any modern young woman, we don’t have time for a full makeup routine. Or if your like me, I rather sleep the extra hour than get up and primp. Everything Ally talked about was completely in line with how I feel about everyday makeup, especially for the young women out there. NUDESTIX also has a mission statement that I truly believe in and want for DYH.
NUDESTIX gives you easy, natural options. You can’t go wrong with anything from the line. All the shades are super natural and wearable. The pencils are formulated with good for you products and just the right hint of color that can be used anywhere. Everything is creamy, but matte, so it blends beautifully on the skin. The pencils are all made in Germany and some of the best pencils I’ve used. Each pencil comes in a black matte finished tin. The lids have large mirrors. All pencils come with a sharpener and you can replace the pencil cap with the sharpener so you’ll never loose it. The best part is, the top of the sharpener has a little pick to clean the sharpener! HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I NEEDED THIS LITTLE TOOL?! GENIUS!
The other day I was in need of a mirror and realized I had my NUDESTIX tin with my concealer & lipstick in it. The tin is perfect for someone like me who looses pencils and always needs a mirror. I wish NUDESTIX was around when I was in high school and college because this brand would have saved me from a lot of makeup mistakes. I Also love that everything can be applied with your fingers, no brush needed. Can you say travel and on the go life saver?
Some of my favorite must have items from the line:
The Matte Lip Pens
After playing with this at the event, I ran out to buy this baby in hypnotic. It is a matte formula in a twist up brush pen applicator. The matte formula is not drying and the applicator allows me to apply a bold lip without a lip liner! I usually always need a lip liner, but this product is comfortable to wear and easy to apply. There’s a refreshing minty flavor to the lip pen which I really enjoy. I want every shade!
Magnetic Eye Color
You want long lasting? This is your product. We swatched this on my hand and could not get it off for the rest of the day.
I was gifted Angel which is a beautiful shimmery pale pink that I’ve been using as a base and inner corner highlight. These really last a long time and the creamy formula is so nice to apply with your finger tips. You can bet I’ll be getting more.
The Clean Up Pencil
One of their new product is the clean up pencil, which is a balm that you can use to fix any mistakes you make with your makeup. I like to use this for any winged eyeliner fixes. This pencil is perfect for my everyday mascara fixes as well. I always get mascara on my lids when applying. Also great to keep on you if you have allergies or any emotional melt downs, which I seem to get every so often.
There is also a Blur Pencil, which blurs fine lines and blemishes, a Matte + Blemish Pencil to mattify oily skin areas, and a Moisture Pencil that adds hydration to dry areas, that are all part of the new Skin Pencil launch. These are perfect for on the go and travel fixes that you skin might need through your day.
The Contour Pencil
This is a duel ended pencil with a contour shade and highlight shade on either end. What is so unique about their contour pencil is that it’s super natural. This is contouring for real people in real life. I contour and I know how to over contour, but that’s for filming and on camera, not for dates or school. The shades are natural, creamy, and blendable. The highlight makes you look like your glowing from within and the contour shade is just enough to add a hint of shadow and definition. Spring 2015 is all about less is more and you’ll want this pencil in your bag.
The Concealer Pencil
With the concealer pencil I can make a few swipes, powder and be good to go for everyday. I love the pencil because it’s precise and easy to use. There’s no brush, sponge, or tool needed. The formula is creamy and matte. If you have extremely dry skin try using this in combination with the moisture pencil over the concealer.
I could go on and on about every single pencil I’m collecting, but honestly I LOVE THEM ALL! Stay tuned for a full video on my channel showing you how I use the pencils, swatches, and my fast growing collection of NUDESTIX.

Been waiting for this post and the corresponding video! Which contour stick are you using? I think we are similar skin tones (I am NC20-25/ Mac C2) and I was not sure which contour stick to go with
Thank you for visiting! I’m in the shade light medium, but if you want a little more drama go for the med/dark one. Video will be filmed this week and up early next week 🙂 I believe I’m NC 20-25 in MAC as well.
