When I have at least an hour to spare and am in the mood for breaking out enough products/brushes to cover my entire counter, I'm all for creating super "fleeky" make up looks... Especially with highlighter that's brighter than the sun, and winged eyeliner that is so sharp it could actually cut you.
But in reality being someone who is trying to balance doing well academically, a lit social life, and getting an adequate amount of sleep, a super extensive make up routine is the absolute last thing that I have time to squeeze into my day-to-day routine. That's why I'm super stoked on the new makeup brand for every girl on the go just like me: NUDESTIX!
Why I love this brand:
1. All the makeup is super versatile: Not only are these products made for every skin type and skin shade, but everything they sell is created with the intent to be used in a variety of ways (I love the lip stain that also doubles as a blush for your cheeks).
2. No brushes necessary: This line of makeup is literally made to be smudged with your fingers which makes applying it super fast and effortless. You can create an entire natural and glowing day-to-day look in five minutes.
3. High quality products for a not so high price point: These products are just as great quality as other high end make up such as Mac, Urban Decay etc. but for a way more reasonable price #score.
4.The products are super portable: The "stix" come in little black tins that have mirrors on the inside which makes them perfect for throwing in your bag and touching up your make up later on in the day. The little sharpener is also killer to make sure your stix never grow dull.
5. CRUELTY FREE: Literally watch one PETA video on the make up industry and the cruelty of animal testing and you'll get why this is so important.
6. No parabens, phthalates, or sulfates: Nudestix has none of those harmful chemicals that are terrible for your skin and instead are packed with vitamins, antioxidants and LOTS of moisture (they're also dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested).

This color is ideal for everyday use and is super matte but doesn't dry your lips out like other matte products. Also gives the right amount of color to your cheeks!
This shade is perfect for a natural day-to-day look, and I love using this as a highlter along the tip of my nose and cheekbones as well.
