If you haven't heard of Nudestix before, they are well known for their easy-to-use makeup crayons. The crayons are multi-purpose and can be worn on the eyes, lips and cheeks. The brand is all about effortless beauty and rocking the 'no makeup' makeup look. The makeup crayons were created by sisters Ally and Taylor 'for all faces, in all places'. They both are from my hometown Toronto.
"We’re all born with our own unique look, so why cover it up with tons of makeup? When it comes to makeup, a little goes a long way. A dot here and a smudge there does the trick. NUDESTIX is all about embracing the beautiful you.” xx Ally
"Out with the bag overflowing with compacts and brushes and in with simple makeup crayons for the face, eyes, lips and even cheeks. You just draw and smudge on for perfection in an instant.” xx Taylor
The Nudestix for lips is available in a few different formulas that range from nudes and bolds. I have the Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm which is super moisturizing and has a gel shine. I love a good gloss and this one is not sticky at all. It also contains many hydrating plant oils and vitamin E. Another formula I have is the Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil. These give a soft creamy matte finish to the lips and they are also non-drying. It gives an intense pigment with full coverage and is water proof and kiss proof. Both pencils can be used as lipstick, lip liner, and cheek blush for an all-in-one pencil. You will see swatches below. My favourite of the bunch is Belle.
Nudestix has really expanded their brand to include various eye products. From matte and sheer shadows to mascara and brow products. I have two of the Magnetic Matte Eye Color pencils. These can be used as a primer, liner and shadow. They provide intense colour and are water and smudge proof. You can smudge it in with your fingers or blend with a brush. I adore that they can give a subtle wash of colour to your eyes or natural smokey eye.
I love the convenience of these multi-use crayons. As a busy, working mom, I don't always have time to do a full face of makeup and these crayons are perfect to add to my routine when creating a five minute look. They are very ideal to keep in my purse or at the office. I also have a discount code, use MYBEAUTYFAVSBB16 for 15% off their site (shop here).
