I usually don’t do focused reviews on one item, but I stumbled across this when I was in Sephora earlier in the month. I had been seeing these on Nudestix Instagram and before the release date, I spotted them! I decided I’d pick one up. Mostly because it is summer, it’s hot, and it has a stain matte finish which is perfect for summer.
First, this is not a foundation. On the Sephora website it is described as a tinted stick that contains minerals that reflect lights and even out skin tone creating a “soft-matte glow that’s never flat or blah”. It is described as a multitasker that you can use for a variety of things including “tinted coverage, a blurring primer, a blotting cream, a highlight or contour”. It’s also paraben, sulfate and phthalate free, is vegan, oil free, gluten free and cruelty free.
I am not sure where I stand on this quite yet. I bought this at the end of April and I really like that it is a super light, barely there tint. However, I have been having a few skin issues so it hasn’t been the best thing for that of course, but it doesn’t claim to be full coverage AT ALL, so that is perfectly fine with me.
The formula is beautiful. It is a smooth, blendable texture that you can throw on and go. I don’t normally spend time contouring in the morning as I am usually looking to do my makeup relatively quickly.
Nudestix is also a female owned, Canadian cruelty free brand that I love and I was happy to buy a new launch. The price isn’t too extreme, it is $33 CAD for .22 oz of product which yes, isn’t a lot of product and is a hefty price, but its super cute and tiny and works really well for an easy look. For dryer skin I recommend hydrating before so that it doesn’t cling to dry patches. When I was at home for a few days I brought this and I didn’t have my normal moisturizer so it was clinging in areas it normally wouldn’t.
Would I recommend? Yes 100% if you are looking for something that is super light coverage and blurring yes. But if you have skin that is acne prone this might not be what you are looking for, but again all personal preference! You do you!
Have you tried any new launches?
