Review: NUDESTIX Nudies Tinted Blur Stick

Hi Beauties,

Please tell me you’ve heard about the NUDESTIX Nudies Tinted Blur Stick*? If you haven’t I won’t get angry. To be fair I feel like it hasn’t been talked about in Australia. When I saw Taylor from NUDESTIX using it, I was like tell me more!

About the NUDESTIX Nudies Tinted Blur Stick:

Nudies Tinted Blur Stick is an innovative soft-focus and light reflecting mineral stick that creates flawless looking skin by smoothing and blurring the appearance of texture, blemishes, discolorations, lines and pores with an overall effect of a soft-matte glow that is never flat or blah!

Overall Thoughts:

  • Retails for $42 AUD or $30 USD and available from Sephora
  • Available in 10 shades which sounds limiting, but the shades are adjustable depending on your real skin tone.
  • I’m wearing the shade 6, but I think shade 7 would be better suited for me.
  • To apply, prime as normal, then glide the stick over your face. To blend in I used my fingers as that’s how Taylor applies it. As its sheer to light coverage, I feel if you use a sponge it will just absorb all the pigment.
  • The coverage is very sheer and is buildable to a light coverage. Below I’ve applied 2 layers and as you can see my pigmentation is showing through.
  • The finish is semi-matte, minimal to no powder required.
  • As an oily gal, I find the best combo is using a bit of the Smashbox Primer Spray, a mattifying primer (not silicone or pore refining) and lightly powder through the T zone.
  • I also recommend a setting spray if you don’t want it to look as matte.
  • After a couple of hours the foundation blends more into the skin and doesn’t look as matte which is good.
  • I find if I don’t prime properly I can look quite oily, so I make sure to blot as it doesn’t move the foundation too much.
  • Also I noticed it does stick to dry skin, so if you have drier skin I recommend prepping your skin thoroughly by exfoliating and moisturising.

After using this foundation for a couple of weeks, I can say that it does exactly what it says it does. Its a light coverage foundation, great to even out your skin tone and use on no makeup makeup days. I’ve really enjoyed using this foundation and hope that they bring out a fuller coverage foundation in the future.
