I love Nudestix for their intuitive-to-use pencil makeup format, and the incredible ability to carry all my makeup needs in a single sleek tin. That means no round cushion nor powder compact, nor messy liquid foundation to clutter up my purse. Now with the Nudies Tinted Blur the dream is finally reality.
Nudestix’s Nudies Tinted Blur comes in a chubby twist-up pencil, and features a cream-to-powder formula. To apply, simply swipe on the face and blend with finger/brush/sponge. With the marketing tag of #gonudebutbetter, the Tinted Blur gives a sheer, lightweight coverage. It is so sheer that coverage does not even quite capture the essence of the Tinted Blur… instead it blurs pores, smoothens the texture of the face imperceptibly, and evens out skin tone. It reminds me of a combination of those pore-perfecting primers and setting powder in a handy singular product.
As you can see from the half-faced comparison shot above, the Nudestix Nudies Tinted Blur magically erased my dark circles, tough it did not completely conceal the redness around my nose. Needless to say, any major imperfections and zits would still require a concealer. What is really lovely is how natural the skin looks, as Tinted Blur allows the real skin to still show through. The finish is soft and velvety, very modern and chic, perfect for everyday wear.
There are 10 shades currently available, but they meld so well into the skin that it should not be difficult to find a match. Of course, apart from using the Tinted Blur as base color, it can also be to highlight and contour. I actually really like the texture for contouring, easy to blend and sheer enough that it is unobtrusive, with the perfect matte finish. Ingredients may be found here.
Nudestix Nudies Tinted Blur is out at Sephora now. Will you be checking it out?
