Your answer to no makeup, makeup

We might live in the sunniest part of the world but that doesn’t always equate to a healthy glow – because, heat stroke, right? The answer for that perfect pinch of colour though, is NudeStix. Let us explain…

Ask any woman what look she feels best in, she'll probably say "that fresh from the beach, sun kissed look". Hear, hear.

Beauty trends may come and go (and good riddance to some), but the barely-there makeup trend is officially the go-to for an everyday beauty routine. Because, let's face it (pun intended), we don't want to look like a trifle cake. We want to accentuate our best features with a hint of colour – since a little really can go a long way.

But here's the thing. Somehow, just somehow, we are becoming increasingly time poor. The idea of spending more than a few measly minutes beautifying ourselves is not an option ­- because, sleep is more important, no?

So, when NudeStix's new products arrived on our desk, the excitement was real. Because these babies are all-over-the-face miracle products.

OK. Let's break it down for you.

There's a blush, bronzer and glimmers you need to know about. So you've got the Sunset Strip from the Nudies Blush collection, Sunkissed from the Nudies Bronze collection and a trio of highlighters from the Magnetic Nude Glimmers collection.

Sunset Strip is a soft-coral nude with just the right pop of colour for a healthy flush. It's got a cream-to-powder finish, which basically means it's got a cream technology behind it – so it applies like a cream but once you blend it into the skin, it sets down like a powder. It's matte, but never flat. The same applies to Sunkissed (although this is a darker more chocolate hue) ­– which you can use to bronze, contour and sculpt your face.

With the shimmery-sheeny highlighters in Bronzi Babe, 99% Angel and 24K Goddess, you're guaranteed long wear, waterproof and no-budge success. Now this product has a doe foot applicator which makes it easier to apply onto the flatter surfaces of your face (i.e. the eye). Between the different shades you can mix and match and not only apply on your brow bone, but your cupid's bow and the corner of your eyes - so they brighten your eyes and serve as a lip foil. Fantastic.

What we love most?

Not only is the blush and bronzer for your cheeks, but you can totally swipe them on the eyes and lips – yep, pucker up.

Other thing we love most?

On one side of your stick you have the colour balm and on the other, you've got a magnetic synthetic blending brush – meaning you can take it off for washing purposes. So intuitive.

And one final thing...

We recommend using your fingers to blend the products in, because they will literally melt onto your skin.

Honestly speaking, NudeStix make you look like you just came from Kite Beach...
