Ever since I developed this chronic ache in my shoulders and neck from carrying a handbag that was too overloaded, I’ve been forced to downsize and streamline my on-the-go makeup pouch very drastically. I mean, I used to carry several lipsticks (from the orange, coral, pink, red and nude families), as well as differing types of eyeliners, etc. I find that carrying pencil-shaped items (read: long and slim items) are the best, cos they don’t bulk up your bag and still give you a good grip during application. This explains why I’m particularly excited about this new range of products that Sephora is bringing in – introducing NUDESTIX!
Here’s a brief introduction about the brand:
Touch ‘N’ go makeup stix for skin, eyes, lips and cheeks too! NUDESTIX is a streamlined makeup collection of pencils and pens designed to provide a quick and easy, nude look that works for all faces you can apply in all places.
Sisters and models, Ally and Taylor Frankel, turned to their mom, Jenny Frankel, a multi-award winning, cosmetics business builder and chemical engineer,to create innovative, neutral-tones, easy-to-use makeup products. Jenny Frankel commenced her career formulating products for industry giant MAC Cosmetics, and then moved on to create COVER FX, a cosmeceutical complexion brand, winning multiple
awards for her iconic cream foundation formula.
Jenny sourced the finest of products in Europe, adding special skin saving vitamins, anti-oxidants and moisturizers, NUDESTIX are loaded with just enough color to get the job done. This simple collection of easy-to-use makeup crayons covers all the bases. The result? A fresh-faced, nude and natural look.
