💬 Review Op. 3: Nudestix Smokey Gold Eyes Mini Set.
Ingredients: The products in this set are vegan, hypoallergenic, gluten-free, fragrance-free, and preservative-free.
Experience: This holiday set comes with a pencil sharpener and three beautiful shades that are also available in the permanent line — Copper Foil, Burnish, and Chocolate. Copper Foil is a warm-toned copper gold with a metallic finish. Burnish is a medium bronze with a metallic finish. And Chocolate is a deep chocolate brown with a matte finish. All three shades swatch beautifully on the back of my hand and are very pigmented. However, I experience many problems when I apply them onto my eyelids. First of all, they do not apply very smoothly on the eyelids. In fact, they tug a little. Second, I can’t blend them out easily either. Somehow the formula feels dry and gets patchy easily when I try to blend. Third, the longevity is unimpressive. These colors all start to crease and fade after 4-5 hours of wearing.
P.S. My eyelids are of normal skin type, and I always use an eyeshadow primer.
Verdict: I do not enjoy using these eyeshadow pencils and regret purchasing this mini set. For those who are looking for eyeshadow pencils, I would recommend the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil if you are shopping with a budget or the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour if you want to splurge a little.
