Hey guys! Today I wanted to share my thoughts on some of the collab products that Allana Davison did with Nudestix. If you’re not familiar with Allana, do yourself a favour and check out her content! She is not only hilarious and beautiful (and Canadian!), but in May she’s posting every day on Youtube as well. Since I’m a huge fan of Allana when I saw her collab I immediately purchased it.
Allana has done a previous collection with Nudestix but I didn’t pick it up since there were pieces I already owned included in the kit. The only original product was a lip product called Send Noodz. But recently she announced the launch of Picante, a new blush shade she created along with Send Noodz being sold individually. So I picked up Send Noodz and Picante.
So let’s talk first about Picante, but it’s so bright and eye-catching. Picante is a new shade to the existing Nudies Matte blush range. I own a shade in this range and am already in love with the formula. It blends so easily that I can apply it straight to the face. And because it’s a ‘matte’ formula (I put matte in quotations because it isn’t super matte like a powder) it’s quite long-lasting.
The shade Picante is a bright orange coral. It’s quite intimidating in the tube but it blends out so well on the face. I love warm orange tones, especially in the summer. It blends so seamlessly with cream bronzers. It just made me look so bronzed and tanned. I see myself using this so much this summer.
The lipstick, Send Noodz, is Allana’s special edition of their Gel Colour Lip & Cheek Balm. This is a hybrid between lip balm, lip gloss and lipstick. It has some good pigmentation to it but also quite balmy and slippy. But not sticky whatsoever. It’s very comfortable on the lips, the perfect everyday lip product. The shade is also glorious. They don’t have any descriptions of it but I would describe it as a warm pink-peach nude. For my skin tone, it’s a great everyday nude.
Overall both of these products are amazing and I can see myself using them every day. I highly recommend both of these products. Not only are they good quality but you’ll be supporting a Canadian influencer and a Canadian brand!
And that’s it for today’s makeup review. Let me know in the comments what products you’d like to see me test out. I need to restock some skincare products from Sephora soon and maybe I’ll pick up a few more things to test out, so let me know what you’d like to see!
