Beauty Product Reviews

Love it!

This was my first purchase of Nudestix products, and I definitely don't regret it!

I have watery eyes, and these eyeshadows stay put all day despite this. I experimented with combining these with some powder shadows, and they played quite nicely. They're even great for a base colour/primer! The blush is a beautiful shade, albeit a little dark on my pale skin when applied directly. I use a fluffy brush to apply the blush instead, and it looks gorgeous, and despite it being a "matte" shade, it still gives me a little glow on the cheeks. The highlighter is a unicorn-lover's dream, and a little goes a long way. Great for highlighting the brow bone!

Perfect for everyday, no-fuss eye looks

Pros: immediate colour pay-off; soft and smooth to apply; true to colour; and easy to smudge for an easy day time smokey look. Also, waterproof! My eyes tend to water, and at the end of the day, this was still on my eyes, and hadn't travelled downwards!

Cons: this stuff sets quick, so be sure to blend as soon as you apply; for more precise lining, this pencil is too thick for that; can feel a little tight/dry on the eye after setting, but that's because of it being waterproof, which is understandable.

Will definitely buy more shades!

A lovely, warming cleanser

I bought this on a whim to try, since I wasn't happy with my usual cleanser (some Japanese acne foaming stuff that basically dries my poor skin to an almost Sahara Desert-like dryness). This stuff is a treat- you don't need a lot, and it foams just enough to cleanse. The warming sensation is so relaxing, especially after a long day and you just wanna go to bed! I have oily/combination skin that can break out easily, and so far it's doing a decent job of not irritating my issues.

You want bling? Get this.

I LOVE this highlighter! It is long lasting, and a little goes a long way. I literally wear it almost everyday to work and after twelve hours, it's still there, shining like the high heavens. I mixed it into my foundation and it added a lovely glow. It's definitely got some glitter vibes, but I bathe in the stuff, so it doesn't bother me. I use my fingers to tap it onto my cheekbones till it's blended. Do I recommend? Heck yes!

A super pretty pink for every day wear.

Pre-warning: this lipstick is not as opaque as the others in JS' collection, but it is still super pretty and wearable. I even tested out reapplication after eating and it plays nicely on the lips.

Is it long-lasting through a Taco Bell session? No. But it definitely passes the kiss test!

Redness who?

As someone who battles with oily/dry combo acne skin, finding a daily foundation or CC cream that didn't exacerbate my poor skin's current issues is difficult, not to mention needing good coverage as well for my red cheeks, adult acne and acne scars. I took a leap and bought this on a whim, since I'm noticing a lot of my usual go-to's (usually matte, oil-control foundations) were starting to look cakey and dry by the end of the day, despite using endless setting sprays.

I have been using this product for almost a month now and it's safe to say, I LOVE IT. I work in an environment where I don't have time for touch-ups, and as the day goes on, my skin just looks dewy and healthy. The yellow tone instantly neutralises my red cheeks and a little goes a long way. Definitely recommend!

Absorbs beautifully!

I have combo oily-dry skin with adult acne, and finding moisturiser that doesn’t keep making me even MORE oily is difficult. After reading the reviews of this product, I decided to dive in and give it a go. ZERO REGRETS. This absorbs so well into the skin, and it doesn’t feel heavy or greasy. It literally feels like a drink of water for my poor skin. And my makeup actually looks better!
