Nudestix Nudies All Over Face Color Matte, Bronze + Glow Review & Swatches

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’ SpiceDusty 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 BaeBronzed 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.

Hey, HoneyGolden 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-NaughtyPop 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.

Nudestix Nudies All Over Face Color Matte, Bronze + Glow Review


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.

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop/Flowerchild

Hey strobing and blush fanatics! This Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Collab has been all the buzz in Sephora lately. It seems like this year’s cool weather makeup trend involves luminous skin andย playing with light. Thus the quest for the perfect highlighter or strobing products.ย 

I’ve heard a lot of talk about Becca highlighters or the Shimmering Skin Pressed Perfectors, specially the very famous Champagne Pop. Kylie Jenner uses them and a lot of MUAs. This Sephora Exclusive, Limited Edition Becca and Jaclyn Hill Highlighter and Blush Duo is a really good option for those who wants to try Becca’s popular Champagne Pop Highlighter plus their popular mineral blushes at the same time. It’s even greatย for those who have never tried their Champagne Pop before, like me. There’s differentย combinations available in each 4 compacts; The Champagne Pop (highligher)/Flowerchild(blush), Champagne Pop/Hyacinth, Prosecco Pop/Amaretto, Prosecco Pop/Pamplemousse.

I wasn’t so sure what combination I wanted at first. I had my eye on the Prosecco Pop/Pamplemousse at the beginning, because the blush’s color seems to match my skin tone upon swatching them at Sephora. But, I really really wanted to try the Champagne Pop, so my decision shifted towards the 2 compacts with Champagne Pop on them. But then again, I feel like I wanted the Amaretto shade for contouring, but it has Prosecco Pop on it, no Champagne Pop. OK, I literally had a brain damage in Sephora while trying to decide which Becca x Jaclyn Hill Highlighter/Blush duo I should get. I almost walked out from there because I got so annoyed at myself. But I WANTED TO TRY IT at least just one compact, my unconscious subconscious was telling me. So off I took home the Champagne Pop/Flowerchild, fingers crossed ๐Ÿ™‚ but at least there’s Champagne Pop on it, hoping that the blush is buildable enough for more coverage.

Well, what do you know! this combination is really great. I love the Champagne Pop highlighter so much, I’ve been using it a lot lately. It gives a soft highlighted effect on the face and it stays put for a long time. I’m not exactly sure why some people said that this particular formulation is different from the original Champagne Pop Pressed. I swatched both at Sephora and I really couldn’t tell the difference. Perhaps I should try the Shimmering Pressed Perfector too. ๐Ÿ™‚ As for the Flowerchild blush, well, it’s pigmented enough and is really buildable. Also, it doensn’t look over the top. Overall, a really great blush/highlighter combo. I’m planningย to get another one, perhaps the Prosecco Pop/Amaretto, I hope. ๐Ÿ™‚ย 


Grab yours now! you can buy it in Happy Highlighting!
