Nudestix is a company created by Jenny Frankel, who was inspired by her daughters Ally and Taylor, and wanted to create make-up that is quick and easy to use, and provides nude-but-better look. Nudestix products are cruelty free, and their products don’t contain parabens, preservatives or gluten.
I recently entered a giveaway Nudestix was holding on Instagram, where they were giving away a few of their new Rock n’ Roller Easy Eyeliner Inks, and the only thing they asked for in return was to leave a review on their website. I was one of the lucky ones chosen for this, and I loved the product so much that I had to post a blog review, too. This review would’ve been absolutely the same even if I bought it. I LOVE this eyeliner. Plus, the name just speaks to me, since I am a huge fan of rock and roll ever since I was a child.
The eyeliner comes in 3 colors:
- Black Moon
- Bronze Patina
- Golden Rosé
All the colors are vegan, and the eyeliner comes in their usual black tin with mirror. I love these tins and reuse them all over my home to store small things that can be easily misplaced (like those disappearing bobby pins).
The eyeliner is very easy to use. You just shake and roll the wheel along your lash line. It swatches beautifully. I swatched the eyeliner on my arm and tried to rub it off after 30 seconds, it didn’t budge. You can see it in action on my Instagram. The color is beautiful, like a foiled metallic, and perfect for spring.
At first I thought the little wheel was just a gimmick, or that there would be a learning curve, but it was very easy to get perfect lines from the first use. The applicator makes this eyeliner easier to use than the felt tip ones. The wheel is very thin, so you can get thin, natural looking lines (my preference), but you can easily get thicker lines if you wish. The color adds some interest to my eyes without being too much. This photo shows my first attempt at applying the eyeliner – I think it turned out pretty good. I’ve been using this eyeliner at least once a week since I’ve received it. Did I mention how much I love it? 😀
I have to mention that I’ve noticed some bad review on Sephora’s website. From what I can tell, these are all or most for the Black Moon color. I can’t say how that particular color works, but I had absolutely no issues with this Golden Rosé color.
Have you tried any Nudestix products yet? Do you prefer natural makeup looks, or do you go full-on glam? What do you think about this new eyeliner applicator?
