Nudestix is a brand which launched earlier this year and got everyone talking. Although we’ve seen lots of pencils hit the beauty market recently in the form of chubby sticks, this brand is all about the pencils. This means all you need is half a dozen pencils and no brushes to quickly achieve your make-up looks. But can Stix and pencils really replace our traditional powders blushers and pot concealers?
I’ll start with my least favourite product, the Magnetic Eye Colour in Night, it isn’t actually a bad product however I found it was a little thicker than I had liked which lead me to have to create a smokier line than I would have liked but it is very dark and although creamy to apply, it sets lasting all day/night. 

The other three products the Concealer Pencil, Lip + Cheek Pencil and the Eye Pencil however are products I would happily keep in my makeup bag for touch-up throughout the day and to take my make-up from day to night. The Eye Pencil in Smoke is perfect if you want to create an effortless eye look on-the-go, it easy to apply, blend with your finger or use the smudge brush. The Lip + Cheek Pencil in Love is a great colour for the lips but looks equally as beautiful on the cheeks and saves the time wasted on worrying if your blush and lipstick match. 

The standout product however is the Concealer Pencil which I use in Light 3, at the end of the day my makeup starts to fade and this can really help wake up my base and would be my desk essential before leaving for drinks. I use a little under my eyes and around my nose to conceal darkness and redness as well in the corner of my eyes and under my brow bone to highlight. It’s super creamy, easy to apply and blend, I think I’ll be keeping this one in my bag for daily touch-ups.

    I've really been meaning to try out some of these – they look like they would be awesome for travel. 🙂

    This seems like a really cool idea! Sticks are so much easier on-the-go but I do agree that they don't always create the same effect. Sometimes the good old brush is what you need! Though, this seems like a must try!

    I've never heard of these before, but the concept intrigues me! Not sure I could make the straight up switch from brushes to pencils, sometimes you can't beat a brush! They look really interesting, I will have to try them!

    These are such an interesting concept! They seem great for being on the go, I'd really love to swatch them and see how the formula weighs up.

    Intriguing concept but I've never really liked pencil products aside from liners and brow pencils. I wish I liked them more however because they'd be so great for travel. Nice little review! xx

    These sound amazing – I neeeed to try them! I'm always drawn to pencil/crayon products as they're so fuss free and don't produce any fall out!
