As the name suggests, there’s certainly something quite celestial about the colour, creaminess and wearability of this magnetic eye pencil. The NudeStix magnetic eye color pencils (R350) are hailed as being “über long wearing“. This is no lie. I applied the colour to my lids in the morning and by 8 that night it was still there. It didn’t smudge or crease or change its appearance whatsoever. I honestly waited and waited until I realised it just wasn’t going to budge. Obviously when they say magnetic they mean this eyeshadow sticks to your skin like a magnet. If you have oily lids then these are your new best friend.
Smooth, creamy and effortless are three words I would use to describe these supernal eye pencils. Did I mention that these eye shadow pencils are housed in a black, eco-friendly mirrored tin? Also it includes a very convenient sharpener that not only fits onto one side of your NudeStix pencil but also has its own lid to keep pencil shavings from causing a mess. Genius! Perfect little makeup item to have on the go, don’t you agree?
The shade I was sent by 27Pinkx is called “Angel” (R350) and this heavenly colour is all sorts of pretty. It’s a soft, subtle, shimmery wash of champagne, gold and rose. This glides on like a creamy dream and blends out beautifully. But just make sure you start blending before this baby sets because like I said before once it sets its there till you remove it with makeup remover. I love using it as a highlighter for my inner eye or as an all over lid colour for those days when I’d rather play up my lips but still have a pretty hint of colour on my eyelids. So even though the colour is more on the subdued side that doesn’t mean the actual shadow isn’t richly pigmented. It’s very buildable and can be worn alone or blended with other shadows.
I love that all the NudeStix products (eye shadow, eye liner, blush, lipstick and concealer) are in pencil form. It’s simple and easy and if you’re a girl-on-the-go then these were made for you. You can purchase this angelic eye shadow (R350) as well as all the other NudeStix products on 27Pinkx. Go nude, but only better…
