What’s Up There Guys! If you’re following my Instagram, you’d see that I’ve posted a few upcoming sneak peeks of products that will be reviewed soon. Some of them are these Nudestix All Over Face Color Matte and the All Over Face Color Bronze + Glow (0.25 oz for $30).
I’ve always wanted to try these face color sticks since they seem to be really practical to have, especially when I’m traveling and I love that these are so easy to apply because they’re basically just swipe and go. I also love that these come with a brush on the other end for that even application and it eliminates the need to use your fingers, thus making it more hygienic and mess-free.
These Nudestix All Over Face Colors also come in a cute multi-purpose rectangular tin can for easy storage or as carrying case. The top lid even has a mirror in it. The sticks themselves are in a chubby and robust packaging. The brushes that are attached on the other side of the sticks are dense and compact. The Nudies All Over Face Color Mattes have flat rounded brushes that are great for blending the colors on the face either as a blush or as an all-over contour. While the Nudies All Over Face Color Bronze + Glow have angled brushes that define the curves of the face for highlighting or bronzing.
Nudestix All Over Face Color Matte
Naughty N’ Spice – Dusty Rose Nude. This is a creamy blush that is well-pigmented at one swipe. I love the mauve rose tone of this and it spreads easily on the cheeks using the brush on the other end.
Bondi Bae – Bronzed Nude. I use this for contouring and it gives a subtle contour on the face. It’s also creamy, pigmented, and it blends easily. Love the pure matte and mid-tone brown hue of this.
The brushes of these two Face Color Mattes are nice add-ons, and they’re easy to work around the face. They’re also somewhat a bit softer than the angled-brushes of the All Over Face Color Bronze + Glow.
Nudestix All Over Face Color Bronze + Glow
Hey, Honey – Golden Sun-Kiss. A great color as a bronzer or as a highlighter for the lips, cheeks, bridge of the nose, or around the eyes. This has a nice golden subtle shimmer that feels very lightweight and has a very natural effect. It feels a bit oily more than creamy and it can be layered for a dramatic glow.
Illumi-Naughty – Pop of Pearl. This has a subtle dewy finish but can also be layered and it blends easily using its angled brush on the other end. It also feels a bit oily and has a nice soft shimmer to it.
These Bronze + Glow Face Colors have a somewhat oily consistency instead of being creamy like the All Over Face Color Mattes, though they glide very well on the cheeks. Their brushes feel kinda stiff at the beginning which therefore has a tendency to move your foundation around, especially if you’re kinda heavy-handed. I suggest doing a stipple application and be light-handed in order to prevent this.
These Nudestix All Over Face Color Matte and Bronze + Glow are handy and portable even though their brushes might be a bit stiff and that they feel kinda sticky on the face right after application. They give a natural glow on the face, but they can also be layered for a more dramatic look and they’re pretty much easy to blend. They’re also multi-purpose which makes them the ideal travel companions.
