It’s fall! That means it’s time to get a pumpkin spice latte and bust out my leggings and a cosy sweater. I know, I’m just one top-knot away from being full-blown #basic (which I am) so I’ll pretend I didn’t just have a PSL and a pumpkin scone (which I did).
Full disclosure: I own a pair of knitted UGGs that I wear as slippers and I regret nothing.
With fall also comes the season of vampy lips, smokey eyes and generally darker and more sultry makeup looks. As someone who generally opts for more natural makeup, I was excited to see that Nudestix just released a line of Magnetic Matte Eye Colors ($24 USD, $28 CAD). These matte eyeshadow pencils come in several beautiful earthy tones that are totally perfect for fall.
Cream eyeshadows are my jam. They are easy to apply and usually require only your fingertips to blend. Can I get an amen? Don’t get me wrong, I love powder and pigment shadows as well. But the majority of the time I’m all about “swipe and blend” makeup. This 3-in-1 formula is an eye shadow, liner and primer in one!
I received two shades, Fig (a redish brown) and Slate (a dark browish grey). I am obsessed with Fig and have been wearing it a ton lately. I use it on my lids and also apply it along my lower lash line. It’s a great “natural” smokey eye option and not to get too cheesy, but the colour totally reminds me of the changing fall leaves.
The formula is extremely long lasting and didn’t budge for 8+ hours. It’s super pigmented as well! While I felt weird skipping my usual winged liquid liner, I like how soft this natural smokey eye look turned out 🙂
