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.

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 Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette Review

Hey, Everybody, I’ve been anticipating to review this beautiful, I mean really beautiful face palette. This is one of the hottest beauty items to have right now and I’m pretty sure we’re all curious about it. So, here it is, the Becca X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette ($46) review and swatches.

 

BECCA X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette Review

 

Upon receiving Sephora’s email promotion about it, I was like “Oh my, this palette is gorgeous”. A few days later, upon receiving the palette by mail (since my local Sephora didn’t carry it yet at that time) I saw that it was indeed a sight to behold. Such a pretty and luxurious looking palette. It seems like Becca’s really good at making tempting compacts and palettes that you cannot resist, and with their collaboration with Chrissy Teigen, this palette couldn’t be more perfect.

There are four shades in this palette, two are highlighters, one is a bronzer and the other one is a blush. I’d say it’s a smart choice to put two highlighters in there because one can never have too many highlighters, especially for those strobing fanatics. Speaking of the two highlighters, they’re kinda similar in tone, but one is slightly darker and rosier, while the other one is lighter and peachy. The bronzer can be doubled for contouring, while the blush is more of a peachy pink.

Rose Gold (Pressed Highlighter) – Just like its name, it’s a golden rosy shimmer that looks very natural especially on light to medium complexion. It could look very similar to the Beach Nectar highlighter in the shade, but once the light hits, you’ll realize that it’s more natural and more subtle in effect.

Beach Nectar (Pressed Highlighter) – A golden peachy shade that’s a tad lighter than Rose Gold. A great highlighter for almost all skin tones because this will really stand out no matter what the lighting is during the day. I prefer this highlighter more than the one above.

Malibu Soleil (Bronzer) – Kind of a medium matte brown that is blendable and gives a natural finish. It sorta reminds me of Benefit’s Hoola, but slightly less pigmented, perhaps. This is such a good versatile bronzer/contouring shade.

Hibiscus Bloom (Luminous Blush) – Pretty coral pink blush with a bit of shimmer. I love that it’s not too pink and it gives the healthy flush on the cheeks. It also complements well with the two highlighters.

 

BECCA X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette Review

 

This Becca X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette is indeed a great palette to have and is a must have. It has everything you’d want in a highlighting/contouring palette and the shades complement each other, not to mention their natural effect on the face. They may be all on the peachy side or that the effect is slightly more peachy, but I think that’s the purpose. It’s meant to make you look healthy and glowy ala California skin. The shades are also blendable and can be layered as well. I know some fair-skinned peeps have complained that the palette looks too dark or too pigmented on them, so it may help to be very light-handed when applying the colors.

I also noticed a few fallouts especially on the Beach Nectar highlighter, but it’s not so bad, at least not for me. Couldn’t really say any more negative things about this palette. I’m glad that I bought it and I think you might wanna have it too. It makes me feel like Queen Cleopatra that just got out of Sephora all gilded and well-chiseled, blinding everyone’s eyesight, until someone says “you look oily” and that’s when I start to become The Hulk. LMFAO.

 

The Becca X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette is available inΒ Sephora, QVC, Lord & Taylor & Ulta.
