Nudestix was founded by sisters Ally and Taylor Frankel (with help from their mum Jenny), and are a beauty brand that’s become an expert in the ‘barely-there’ makeup. Nudestix was founded based on a shared love for all-out natural makeup, and was launched after an unsuccessful search for makeup that comes with a no-nonsense attitude. Nudestix believe your natural skin should thrive, and that you only need little coverage here and there to achieve that flawless nude look.
Nudestix have opened their first ever pop-up shop in Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge until July where customers can create their very own Nudestix Pick a Palette for £68 with a value of £120 making it an amazing deal. The Nudestix Pick A Palette allows you to choose six different Nudestix pencils from a range of their bestsellers such as the Magnetic Matte, Luminous Eye Collections and Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencils.
Nudestix Pick A Palette
In addition to the Nudestix Pick A Palette customisation offer, there will also be 13 exclusive palettes containing everything needed to create the perfect nude, but better look. The multi-purpose stix for the eyes, lips + cheeks, and brows come with a jumbo Nude(Art)ist tin and sharpener to take your makeup to-go.
The Pick a Palette is a super sleek matte black tin with a mirror within the lid making them ideal for your handbag or when travelling. For my Nudestix Pick A Palette I chose four of the Nudestix Magnetic Luminous Eye Colors, one Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color and one Nudestix Magnetic Matte Eye Color.
Nudestix Magnetic Luminous Eye Colors £20
“An über long wearing eye shadow pencil that highlights, provides intense luminous color, precise lining and primes lids for all day wear.
This longwearing, waterproof, neutral eye shadow pencil delivers and highlights the face’s highpoints; like cheekbones, tear ducts and brow arch. This 4-in-1 application is easy to use, but still gives intense color, precise lining, and primes lids for all day wear. Ideal for oily lids, these fun and sassy touch n’go makeup stix are soft and super gliding, easy to blend, with even payoff that will provide a quick and easy ‘nude look, but better’ for all faces in all places.“
Queen Olive – a metallic olive green.
Lilith – a light gold shimmer.
Nudity – a metallic rose gold.
Burnish – a deep chocolate brown.
Angel – a champagne shimmer.
Nudestix Magnetic Matte Eye Color £20
“Say hello to the new mattes! These 3-in-1 pencils are color, liner and base all-in-one – even safe in the water line for that added definition. Magnetic Eye Color pencils are easy-to-blend eye shadow stix that provide intense color, precise lining and primes lids for all day, budge-proof wear. Achieve subtle, natural smoky eyes or a luminous wash of color on the lids that will last all day with the innovative waterproof, smudge-proof and transfer-proof formula. The smooth and soft gliding color has even payoff and will keep you look fresh for up to 9 hours.“
Taupe – a matte grey toned brown.
If you like an eyeshadow pencil, you simply have to try Nudestix. I already own the shade Gilt from a previous beauty box and it’s my go-to whenever I want a quick and easy eyeshadow look, so I’m thrilled to have six more shades in my collection. They are chunky pencils so they do need sharpening, but the sharpener included within the Nudestix Pick a Palette is one of the sharpest sharpeners I’ve tried, sharpening the pencils in very minimal turns reducing unnecessary wastage.
All six shades are soft and buttery smooth, and they look smooth on the lids so they’d work for all ages even the shimmer shades. There are no glitter particles in the shades I own although Queen Olive does look sparkly when built up to two layers, but I’ve had zero issues of creasing, fading, transferring or smudging. In fact the formula is one of the best I’ve ever tried for longevity, they simply do not move once dried down on the lids.
They are very longlasting and even stay perfect with hayfever induced streaming eyes which really impressed me. Each Nudestix shade is £20, so to get the Nudestix Pick A Palette with six shades of your choice for £68 is exceptional value and such a great way to try the brand if you’re yet to try their winning formula. Although they pride themselves on being a barely there, natural makeup brand these shades can be worn sheerly over the lid or lashline or they can be built up for a fully opaque and intense colour. I really need to try their lip and cheek colours next as the eyeshadow sticks really have wowed me.
