NUDESTIX is back at it again with another product that I love- the NUDIES. There are two variations of the product: Matte & Glow. There are 5 matte shades (I want them all), and 3 glow shades for bronzing and highlighting. Each retail for $30 and have a blending brush on the opposite end of the color, which is kinda genius.
Taylor wearing “Deep Maple, Eh” on their IG kinda sold it for me- and that’s the next shade on my wishlist! But, I have 1 matte shade & 1 glow shade to review for you today. Bare Back is a light pinky nude with a faint shimmer, and Illumi-Naughty (that name. yes.) is a pearl-pink duochrome.
I’ve been loving a monochrome look for spring- meaning the same color on eyes, cheeks, and lips. I’ve been trying it out with Bare Back, but it’s a little lighter than what I’d gravitate towards. I think the darker shades Naughty & Spice or Deep Maple, Eh would look better on me, but I’ve been making this one work. I absolutely LOVE it on my cheeks the most, which is how I usually wear it. Illumi-Naughty is much more sheer and is kind of a combination of a face gloss & cream highlighter in one. So, this isn’t the BLINDING highlight you may be used to, but if you like looking dewy you’ll enjoy this one.
As someone with oily skin, I usually stray away from cream products because I don’t think they’ll work for me. But, after experimenting with these I’ve found out how to apply them without ruining my face-full of foundation, as I don’t have nearly enough nice skin to go foundation free like a lot of NUDESTIX girls. To apply these I’ve only been using my finger and avoiding the brush. I apply this after foundation, before powder, to create the most blendable finish. They blend beautifully with this method- I’ve used it over powder with the same method and it works too, just not as great. Any time I apply a stick directly to my face I can kiss my foundation goodbye & ruin my makeup…so I’ve just had to learn to not apply directly from the stick to my face, although I wish I could! Overall I recommend the matte shades the most- I think they’re the most versatile for me and it’s what I reach for on a daily basis. Now I just want all the shades! Want more NUDESTIX?
