NUDESTIX Magnetic Eye Color in 'Gilt'

It's no secret that I love creamy eyeshadows in a pencil form. They are super simple to apply and very travel friendly and I have a variety from different brands in my collection. The latest addition is the Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color in the shade Gilt.

Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color in 'Gilt' is a creamy eyeshadow in pencil form. The packaging is matte black and similar to Nars Lip Pencils. There is 2,8 g of product inside and the pencil needs to be sharpened which means that you lose some product every time you have to sharpen it and also need to carry a sharpener with you if you travel. The tip tends to last for several uses though, so sharpening isn't required too often. I use the cheap Essence sharpener and it fits inside well. I would prefer if it was a twist up pencil, like the Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows or Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colors.
The eyeshadow formula is soft, really creamy and glides on the lids and blends super nicely, without leaving the lid patchy. It is very nicely pigmented and even with blending most of the color stays on the lid, so it doesn't require too much building. I usually apply one thin layer, blend it out and apply some more focusing on the lid only. I was really surprised by its wear time on my oily lids because it tends to last all day without creasing, as long as I set it with some powder eyeshadow in the crease. 
The shade Gilt is a metallic warm gold and looks very pretty with bronzed skin, so I've been loving wearing it lately and will continue to do so throughout summer. In the look below I also applied some bronzer from the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow Duo in the outer corner and used the L'Oreal Telescopic Clean Definition Mascara. If you layer it under shimmery shades it makes them pop even more and also acts as a base.
The Nudestix Eye Color in Gilt and Urban Decay Half Baked are very very close irl, but on the photo the undertones of both are more noticeable, UD seems like a more true gold shade, while Gilt has some more bronziness added to it.
Available here in 8 different shades.
