Nudestix Nudies All Over Face Colour Glow, £30 both from the Nudestix’s Nudies Cheek Product Range.

THE HYPE

It might be a lesser-know newcomer to the cosmetics market, but that doesn't mean Nudestix is a brand to be overlooked. The cosmetics collection is all about low-maintenance makeup; something we can definitely get on board with. Dubbed ‘Easy to-go makeup stix’, the brand aims to make putting on makeup as convenient as possible, allowing people to cheat their way towards that effortlessly put-together look we all strive so hard to achieve.

As a self-proclaimed 'no-makeup makeup' fanatic, I wanted to test their blush and highlighter products, to see if I could indeed cheat my way to fresh looking skin.

The Nudies Matte Blush & Bronze (£28) come in 7 shades, ranging from 2 bronzing shades and a more neutral mauve-toned hue to more vibrant shades, which have all been created to help beauty buffs achieve the ultimate fresh flush on the cheeks. Meanwhile, the Nudies All Over Face Colour Glow (£30) comes in 3 shades and promises to give skin a super subtle glow.

The best part is the handy products are pocket-size crayons and can be scribbled all over your face in any which way you like.

REVIEWER

Nicola Lewis, Work Experience

BEAUTY BIO

With oily-skin prone to the odd blemish, I am continuously looking for products that achieve maximum impact with minimal effort. I also look for cosmetics that manage to look semi-natural on the skin. My ultimate makeup products give me flawless coverage on blemishes, look as undetectable on the skin as possible and are incredibly long-lasting, resisting the need to touch up at all. Too much to ask? Let's find out...

THE REVIEW

I've always steered clear of cream or liquid cheek products for fear that they'd enhance my skin’s oiliness but after riskily trying Glossier’s Cloud Paint Blushes (£15) about a year ago, I have been converted to the cream product fanbase.

After dipping my toe in the world of cream products, I trialled Nudestix’s Nudies Cheek Products and I'll never look back. The Nudies Matte Blush in the shade ‘Sunset Strip’ was a perfect purchase ahead of the summer season, as the shade mimics that coveted sun-kissed hue after a day on the beach. If that wasn't enough, the product's multitasking abilities mean they can be used as an eyeshadow tint, on the lips as a lipstick, as well as along the bridge of the nose and Cupid's Bow for that lit-from-within glow.

In combination with ‘Sunset Strip’, the Nudies All Over Face Colour Glow in ‘Hey, Honey’, which I not only apply on the top of the cheekbones as a highlighter, but also in the inner corners of my eyes and sometimes on the eyelids as well, are two products that when used in tandem, create the ultimate no-makeup makeup look.

THE VERDICT

These two products have become absolute staples in my makeup routine since I first tried them, and it only makes me want to try more from the brand. It seriously is the most ideal formula for summer-ready makeup.
