I am a big fan of Nudestix, their Magnetic Eye Colors are some of the most long lasting, easy-to-use pencils around. Their newest release is the Bronzing Pencils for eyes and face, which are dual-ended powder pencils that offer both a matte and a luminous bronze shade for a quick and easy summer look. There are two shades available, Golden Sugar/Earth for light-medium skin tones and the one that I have, the Brown Sugar/Terra* for medium-tan skin tones.
The more luminous shimmery shade is Brown Sugar, a beautiful warm bronzey gold that I have predominantly been using as an eyeliner under my lower lash line for a gorgeous summery eye look. I usually wear a light bronzed eye throughout the summer, and this is the perfect definition to compliment that look. It also looks amazing as an actually bronzer applied on the cheekbones, initially I thought the pencil would be a bit narrow to achieve a proper bronzy look, but because this just glides across the skin, it is very easy just to scribble on and blend in with your fingertips.
On the other end of the pencil is a matte shade called Terra, a mid-toned warm brown that is great for contouring the face such as the hollows of the cheeks, temples and down the sides of the nose. The pencil application makes contouring the nose a breeze as you simply draw lines down either side and blend. I have often found this too much of a faff with powdered products, but the Bronzing Pencil makes it so easy. This Terra shade also makes a lovely crease color for the eyes and is perfect for topping up your shadow during the day, simply swipe though the crease and blend with your fingertips.
Both shades apply beautifully, they glide on with ease and can be blended with the fingertip in a matter of seconds, drying down to a silky powder finish. They are also very long-lasting and are waterproof too, so perfect for hot days at the beach or also great for festivals!
I absolutely love the Nudestix Bronzing Pencil, it is a great multi-purpose and lightweight product that you can throw in your handbag and be able to touch up both your eye and face make-up during the day. A definite summer staple for me now!
