Lately I've been loving playing around with NUDESTIX Pencils. They've got great and travel-friendly options for eyes, lips and cheeks as well as some new and limited edition options. Here are five of my current faves from the brand - check them out and let me know what you'd like to try in the comments!
The packaging is usually in a rectangular black matte tin with rounded edges. The limited edition #gobronze set has a fun design on the lid which I love and hope they do more of! As you open the tin there is a folded paper telling you all about the product, how to use it and recommendations for other items. On the underside of the lid there is also a full size mirror.
NUDESTIX Lip and Cheek Dual Pencil ($24.00 // Sephora). This pencil is a Lip and Cheek duo, but you don't have to just use one side for cheeks and one for lips. The shades are interchangeable so that the colors can coordinate or match on your face. I love how creamy this pencil is and it's easy to apply and blend. The shade swatched below is in Mystic/Whisper but a lighter duo is available in Soul/Flesh.
NUDESTIX Moisture Pencil ($24.00 // Sephora). This is a multi-purpose pencil meant to instantly relieve dry skin. For me, I keep this in my purse all the time because of my allergies. When my eyes water the outer corners get dry and flaky which makes it seriously red and painful. I dab this on after dabbing my eyes dry to keep that from happening. The ingredients are a blend of jojoba oil, vitamin E, argan oil, shea butter and vitamin C.
NUDESTIX #gobronze ($35.00 // Sephora). #gobronze is a duo case of the Magnetic Eye Pencils. The shades you get in this set are Gilt (gold) and Immortal (bronze) which will help you to create a seamless and smooth Summer eye look. These eye pencils are super smooth and make wonderful bases for eye shadows. Like with Twilight, the shade I reviewed previously, I do recommend wearing a secondary primer to avoid creasing. Gilt and Immortal are also available separately for $24.00 each here. This set is limited edition.
NUDESTIX Clean-Up Pencil ($24.00 // Sephora). The Clean-Up Pencil is perfect for removing makeup mess-ups whether it's eyeliner or lipstick... anything, really!
NUDESTIX Sculpting Pencil ($24.00 // Sephora). This is a double-sided pencil of creamy colors suitable for subtle highlighting and contouring. A traveler's dream product, for sure. Lot's of pigment but really easy to blend. The shade I have here that is also swatched below is in Highlight Light/Contour Medium but I found the contour shade to be on the light side, and I'm rather light myself. There is another duo available in Highlight Medium/Contour Deep but I think that the highlight shade in that one may be too dark for me.
