Ready for another NUDESTIX post? Sure you are, it’s been over a week since the last one so you’re probably jonesing for another by now! Today, we are exploring one of the most recent items in NUDESTIX‘ new Skin Care line, The Clean-Up Pencil. Now if you’re at all like me and wind up with mascara all over your upper and lower eyelids every. single. freaking. DAY. this is a product you’re going to want to know about and get your hands on ASAP.
NUDESTIX Clean-Up Pencil – $28.00 CAD (0.10oz) – I have this strange habit of sneezing literally every time I finish applying mascara. You can only imagine what this does to my still-wet, freshly applied black eyelash paint… it ends up all over my face. I’ve learned that if I want to wear eyeshadow I have to do my mascara first (I know, it’s not right and sounds crazy) but it never fails that I end up having to wipe everything off my lids after applying mascara. The struggle is real people, major first-world problems over here.
When I first received this little pencil, I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with it. Yeah, I mess up my makeup from time to time but I’ve gotten pretty used to having wet Q-Tips around for quick clean up – why would I need a special $28 pencil for this? Well, turns out this stick is pretty darn useful and I’ve been converted, again, NUDESTIX has that effect on me.
So, here’s why you need it. It does something that q-tips (even dipped in makeup remover) just can’t do – it gives you super precise removal with no drips, no wetness and it even removes the most long-wearing makeup products instantly. To demonstrate this, I applied the three shades of NUDESTIX Magnetic Eye Colour that I own, Moon, Gilt and Immortal, to my hand and let them dry. Once these eye colours are dry, they aren’t going anywhere, they even stand up to my super greasy eyelids for most of the day! If I were to wipe these with a Kleenex they wouldn’t budge. I drew a line with my Clean-Up pencil through the centre of these three shades and then wiped my whole hand with a Kleenex, as you can see only the parts I touched with the Clean-Up pencil were removed and everything else stayed put!
I love that this pencil isn’t wet or tacky. I’m sure many of you have tried to remove small bits of makeup with a Q-Tip and makeup remover, only to have half your makeup slide down your face because of the liquid consistency on skin. The NUDESTIX Clean-Up Pencil makes it so you can only remove what you want quickly and easily. I’ve found myself reaching for this most days to remove my stupid mascara smudges with just a swipe of this pencil and a light wipe of a q-tip. It also doesn’t leave behind any residue so you’re makeup won’t smudge after using it either! Win-win.
