If you follow my blog, you already know that I’m a huge fan of the brand Nudestix. Easy to use, cruelty-free line that makes the your no makeup look seriously on point.  I always have a handful of their lip, eye and brow products in my makeup bags and have been using them almost daily for the past couple of years.

I was invited to share a few colors from their Magnetic Eye Color product line that comes in 10 matte and 9 luminous colors. These all-in-one pencils are long-lasting, budge proof and quick drying. I’m definitely someone who doesn’t have time to touch up makeup through out the day so long lasting is very important to me.

It Each pencil comes with it’s own cute little travel tin that has a mirror and included sharpener so you never left with a stubby pencil. Depending on the color you choose they can be used as liners, full eyelid color, or highlighters!

The colors I received are Terra (Matte Nude Brown), Queen Olive (Luminous Gold Green), and Taupe (Matte Brown Grey). Each color glides on like butter. Seriously, one of the most smooth applications of eye makeup ever. And depending on how bold you want the color you can leave it or smudge it. I tend to lean for more natural, less bold looks so everything gets smudged. Just make sure you don’t wait too long to smudge because it locks in place pretty quickly!

I paired these looks with Nudestix Eyebrow Stylus Pencil and their Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm (Rebel)- one of the most comfortable lip products I keep in my makeup bag.

There are so many gorgeous colors in this line that I have my eye on. Particularly the Twilight which looks like a grey gold to me, and Putty and Moon, two light matte colors that work for easy daytime looks for me. Each pencil retails for $24 and can be found at Sephora, Urban Outfitters and Blue Mercury.

Chella’s Beautiful Brow Kit

Whether you like having thick or thin brows, beautiful brows can be had by all. I myself have gone through the super thin brow phase when I was much younger and now I try to get that natural, cleaned up arch look.  I’m a little embarrassed thinking how long it took me to actually start using some product and tools to do this instead of just tweezers alone. Seriously, what was I doing? Now, in my wiser years I use helpful kits like Chella’s Beautiful Brow Kit to get the clean, sculpted look I desire.

Chella’s Beautiful Brow Kit gives you the tools you need to get brows in shape. In the kit you get a super fine brow filling retractable pencil, a highlighter pencil, eyebrow defining gel, and a dual sized sharpener. The brow filling pencil comes in six different shades to choose from and has a complimenting highlighter in one of four colors to open and brighten the eye area. I chose Beautiful Blonde.

The brow filling pencil is wonderful in this kit. It has a super fine retractable tip so you can literally draw in fine hairs for a natural look. It also works great for first outlining the shape of the brow you are going for. I tend to outline the lower part first, then follow with the upper outline and fill out and heighten the brow arch point. I have “bald” spots in my brows so with quick sweeps I’ll fill in areas within the brow that need some help. I then blend it all with a spoolie so there are no harsh lines.

After, I’ll follow with the Highlighter pencil (in Ivory lace) on the brow bone and just a dab above. This pencil easily smudges into place with your fingers, and can be used on other places like the inner corners of your eyes, and down the nose if you wish.

The brow defining gel sets your brows in place. It has a mascara type wand that you can use to brush hairs into place and gives them a slight hold so even stubborn hairs that like to do their own thing can stay put.

I like how thin the brow filler pencil is because it really gives you the most natural look possible and the color works great for me. Not to mention, you’d be amazed how nice that highlighter opens up the eye area with something so subtle you’d never even think to do it before. Overall, this is a great little kit to keep in your makeup arsenal for natural but clean looking brows.

Nudestix Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm

For the past couple weeks NUDESTIX has been slowly unveiling snipets of their latest creation on social media and I was lucky enough to get my hands on some of them to test out.  The NUDESTIX Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm is the latest addition to the NUDESTIX family and are perfect for the upcoming summer season, serving both as a balmy lip color, and sheer wash of color for the cheeks. Being that I am already a fan of NUDESTIX I knew these were going to be awesome.

These lip crayons are available in eight shades, six being nudes and two berry options. The Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm moisturizes with grape seed, sunflower, cotton seed and soybean for a healthy looking lip while the formula stays thin and wearable unlike a heavier gloss. Glosses can get thick and sticky while these remain smooth and have some slip to them.  They can also be layered over your favorite lip pencil to add some depth to the color you wear underneath.

The two colors I received were Fate and Pulse. Fate is closest to a “clear” balm that you’ll get in this set but with a faint wash of ballerina pink to it. It almost creates an icy looking lip without the frost look.  Pulse is described as a “pretty plum nude” is one pretty perfect color for me. It honestly would be too hard for me to choose a favorite from these two because they are both equally wearable colors for myself.

Each NUDESTIX Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm retails for $24 each and is housed in a collectible mirrored tin along with its own sharpener. I love using these tins to carry my makeup around in my purse or diaper bag. It’s the perfect size for essentials and the fact that is has a mirror is an added plus.
