Nudestix is a Canadian, cruelty-free beauty brand sold at Sephora. I got a chance to learn about their products at the grand opening of the Yonge and Eglinton Sephora, and sampled the Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color pencils. These eyeshadow pencils come in both matte and satin finishes, isn’t tested on animals and is free of preservatives… all the things I look for in cosmetics! I wanted to share my thoughts in a Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color review.
Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color review: application
These products are a traditional pencil, and glide on the skin smoothly. I didn’t find it scratchy at all and it was very creamy! The pencils blended easily with my fingers and I found it was best to build up coverage to create the desired look.
I definitely recommend using an eyeshadow primer, and also a matte powder shadow all over the eyelid to help create a blended look.
My favourite part about the product? I LOVE that it comes with a custom, dedicated sharpener. I’ve ruined too many gorgeous chubby pencils with crappy dull sharpeners that are too big or too small for the product. I can feel confident that I won’t completely ruin these amazing pencils!
Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color review: swatches and colour
I absolutely adored these two colours. I tested out Slate and Queen Olive. I found them to be both very versatile. Slate is a simple cool matte brown, and is great to have on hand to add precise depth to an eye look. My favourite though was the metallic satin-finish Queen Olive. I placed that shade all over my eyelids and I love the way it shined. I finished off the eye look with my favourite liquid liner and mascara.
Overall, I found this product to be excellent. I would definitely want to explore more of the satin finish shades, because I found them to be super silky and blendable. I could definitely see myself incorporating them into going out eye looks!
Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color is available from Sephora for $28 each.
