NudeStix Bronzing Pencil

Hi Bellas,

I am a sucker for bronzing and contouring, especially when I find a product that makes it quick and easy to get out the door with a sculpted and glowy face.  One of my favorite brands Nudestix just came out with some great bronzing pencils in matte and shimmer shades.  Check it out!

An easy-to-use, dual-ended bronzing pencil for sunkissed summer skin. 

What it does:
These lightweight, waterproof, and long-wearing pencils offer both matte and luminous neutral shades for the everyday bronzed look. The all-in-one duo delivers an effortless beachy glow to your finest features for a sculpted look. To get you festival-ready no matter the season, simply apply smoothly to the skin and let it dry to a silky powder finish. 

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates 
- Phthalates 

What else you need to know:
This product is cruelty-free, formulated without preservatives, and dermatologically tested for sensitive skin.

My Thoughts
I love the large jumbo stick with two ends.  This is definitely a space saver and very convenient for travel.  I got the pencil in the shades Terra/Brown Sugar.  I love that they ofer one matte and one shimmer side.  Sometimes you want a matte contour and other times you want that beachy glow.  I actually found that the contour side was just a smidge darker than my skin tone so I use it for subtle contouring such as around my nose area.  The shimmer side is deeper and I actually an able to mix both shades to get a great facial contour.  Surprisingly it blends out to give a luminous finish, it's not overly sparkly which makes it a nice contour tool.

Product in Action
Here I am using the Bronzing Pencil.  As you can see the pencil is definitely deep enough to contour on my tan skin tone.  When I blend it out with either a beauty blender or synthetic bronzer brush my skin is left with a luminous bronze contour.

Happy bronzing!  You can find this product at They also retail on Beautylish and Sephora.
