Eyeshadow sticks and crayons have been very popular lately. Most makeup brands have released their own version of eye crayons. Some are being marketed as kajal sticks while others are sold as eyeshadow crayons.
I was kindly sent a Christmas Hamper by Urban Outfitters which included this *Nudestix Love #GiltyNight eye color pencil set | $35 along with other goodies.
I am so glad I got to try out these pencils as this has become my favourite so easily. These came in a colourful modern art sleek tin box with a good quality mirror on the inside of the lid. The set comes with a sharpener which is a plus for me as finding a perfect sharpener for a crayon is also a hassle sometimes. This sharpener can also be used with your other crayon lip or eye products 🙂
These are very creamy, pigmented and very long lasting. These glide like a dream and once applied, the pencils set within seconds.
Night is a darkest black shade that looks beautiful and is as dark as Night. I like to apply this in my waterline as the black shade defines my eyes so well. This shade also makes my lashes look fuller (if applied to upper lash line).
Gilt is a champagne gold shade and looks beautiful in inner corner of the eyes. These can also be applied as base for eyeshadow. I do not wear these on its own as an eyeshadow as these set very quickly and it may get difficult to blend edges. The shade Gilt is similar to Laura Mercier caviar stick eye colour in Rose Gold.
Overall, I am really happy with the set and will purchase these once I run out. I would also pick up other shades from Nudestix.
These are also available separately if you like to buy just a single shade and are also available in the UK at around £24 each price mark.
The products marked with asterisk * were either sent to me as gift or for PR purposes. My opinions are however genuine and unbiased.
Until next time…
