This product is absolutely phenomenal! You can just scribble it all over your eyelids and blend out the edges for a synthetic brush or your fingers and have a 30 second eyeshadow look that is very chic looking but with practically no effort. It does not dry down too quickly so you can apply it to both eyes before you start blending and still have sufficient working time. However, once it sets, it is set! I have never had an issue of it fading or flaking or creasing at all. I currently have the shade terra and it is a gorgeous color for my fair olive skin (for reference nars custard concealer matches my face perfectly). It absolutely does not crease on me and therefore it is a great base to build off of if you want a more smokey or dramatic look. I am going to be buying 2 more colors (taupe and fig). Highly recommend!
Creases terribly after just 4 hours, basically gone after that. Trying to buff the product with my finger to even out the creases just removes it. I used it alone on my eyes and also over a mattifying face primer (Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot) which I frequently use under my eyebrow makeup. It might work over my normal combo of 2 eyeshadow primers (MAC Paint Pot and NYX HD Eyeshadow Primer) with a powder to set but at that point, it's lost all its benefit of being a easy-to-use, on the go, minimalist product.
I like the packaging a lot, the mirror inside is very nice! I've put all my at-work makeup in it and it's great to hold my eyebrow pencil, eyebrow gel, and lipstick.
I got the color 'Angel' and for being a 'light rose gold' it is mostly just champagne/gold. I wish it were cooler in tone, all of their shades are very warm!

This stick glides on smoothly and blends with a fingertip or sponge. It sets within a minute or two, so don't delay if you are going to blend. Beautiful color!

I was surprised this product came with a sharpener but did not twist up. I thought mine was damaged and read another review stating the same. Very little product - Not even worth the price. I will stick with Bobbie Brown.

After using this eyeshadow pencil for a few weeks now, I understand why this product is called "magnetic" eye color; you can literally feel the product clinging to your lid. No need for eyeshadow primer, this product stays in place all day!

My favorite shadow!!! Great neutral color on my fair skin.

Love love this. Had to buy a new one because I used up the first one.
Glides on smoothly, perfect pop of nude shimmer for lids.

Easy to apply and very natural looking. This works well on the go.

Great for use as a eyeliner

I had never tried anything from nudestix before but I recently went to pick up something for my friend and ended up getting some eyeshadow sticks for myself as well. I used "Oceania" for the first time today and oh my god it's so pigmented and long lasting!!! I barely primed my lids and it went on so smoothly and hasn't budged and it's been over six hours!

Bought my first Nudestix product the other day. Accidentally fell asleep in this beauty, after giving it a trial run yesterday WITHOUT A PRIMER OR BASE. Still looks absolutely flawless this morning. No idea how. Cannot recommend it enough. I'll be buying several shades.
Valerie from Las vegas
The color is nice. Even with eye primer it doesn't last long. My pencil didn't have a sharpener. Apparently it was taken out before purchase. My daughter does love the color.
CLloyd from Sandy, Utah
This is a great color to add a bit of brightness in conjunction with other colors.

Long lasting, beautiful colors. These are my new favorite eye shadows/ pencils.
Grace from Georgia
Have purchased five for myself, and more as gifts for others. Beautiful color, easy to apply, and long lasting.

I gave up using the pencil tip and now use a brush, but it still goes on blotchy and is difficult to blend. I worry I am pulling on my eyelids too much to blend it evenly. Once it's on I can usually wear it for hours without smudge or irritation, appreciate that it's not sticky. Great color selection of course

Rustique is an absolutely gorgeous metallic rust color that makes green eyes pop! The formula is super creamy, yet it also has robust staying power. It is so easy to create a makeup look with this color that can go from day to night seamlessly.
Melanie from Macclenny, Florida
I will not run out of this product. It stays put all day and doesn't smudge. It blends so easily and is a great base/highlight color.
RebeccaS from Marietta OH
I like how easy this is to use. It glides across my skin without any tugging or dragging. The colors are gorgeous too.

Im a Professional MakeUp Artist of over 20yrs. Im always looking for products that perform in longevity as well as how it photographs. It also photographs beautifully in black and white photographs. While its high in color opacity, theres a softness to the color that is photographed well. For brides this product has at least 14hr holding power. Ive had brides tell me its lasted overnight. Depending on the look Im going for and the tool/brush Im using, I have the ability to use product as an eyeshadow base as well as an eyeliner both sharp and smudged.
I bought the Shady Algae color and it's gorgeous. I like that these are blendable but they don't transfer or slide when my skin gets oily.

There is a weird burning sensation when they are first applied, and then it's like a sticky/tacky feeling on my eyelids for the rest of the day. It also develops creases after only a few hours.

My nudestix LS red fire is the most pretty red in all brand
Brenda from Overland Park KS
I thought these pencils would be gimmicky… They're amazing absolutely amazing people complain about the little black tins that the pencils come in yet those are perfect for travel keeping them contained in your purse and for other household items storage!
Becky from USA
These do stay on all day but they make my lids feel sticky. The colors don't have much shimmer. Also, I was surprised to find they come with a sharpener and aren't twist up. What is it? 1990? I will go back to my Mally shadow sticks. These just aren't my favorite.

I'm addicted to the Magnetic Eye Color line - the colors are exactly as I see them on the website and I'm enjoying trying new ones each time I order! Burnish is a warm gold on me and I love it for daytime!

Not quite what I expected. I was expecting more green from this shade and it trends toward black. It's still a good color it just is not going to be in regular rotation as I had hoped.
