Hey now, hey now! “Sparks” are flying because — drumroll, please — our limited-edition collaboration collection with Hilary Duff is finally here! Nudestix has partnered with the iconic actress, singer, entrepreneur, and Nudestix investor to create the beautiful Daydreamer palette, which includes six all-new shades custom created by Hilary herself. This collection has been a long time coming, and we’re so excited to finally be sharing it with all of you.
With the Daydreamer palette, dull skin and boring makeup is “So Yesterday” because each of the products used together or separately glide effortlessly onto your skin to create anything from a neutral daytime glam, to makeup for a bold night out, to even dreamy Euphoria-inspired vibes. No matter what kind of makeup you’re feeling that day, you’ll be able to use stix from the palette to create the look of, well, your dreams.
What’s in the palette?
The palette contains six new shades of some of your favorite existing Nudestix formulas.
For the complexion, Hilary created a Nudies Matte All-Over Blush in the shade Body Language, which is a rosy pink with a peachy undertone. Taylor Frankel, one of our co-founders, has described it as a mix between our other Nudies Blushes in Naughty & Spice and In The Nude, because it has just a hint of mauve, rose, peach, and true pink to give you a gorgeous, natural-looking flush. Hilary also created a Nudies Glow All-Over Highlight in the shade Half Moon, which is a transparent pearl with a bit of a lavender shift. It’s really similar to Illumi-naughty, if you’re familiar with it, but Half Moon is more cool-toned and the lavender shift is more pronounced.
For the lips and cheeks, Hilary created a brand new shade of our cult-favorite Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm in the shade Secret Keeper, because your “Lips Are Sealed.” It’s a cool-toned rosy pink that works perfectly as a nude lip or neutral cheek tone, and has a beautifully dewy and plumping finish.
Finally, for the eyes, Hilary created three new shades in our signature budge-proof Magnetic Luminous Eye Color formula. Prism is a near-transparent pink with purple and blue sparkles to create a glossy lid effect. Bright Eyes is a taupe-y, pewter-y metallic shade that works well in your crease or all across the lid for a dramatic smoked out eye. And finally, Night Dweller is one of the most exciting shades we’ve ever brought to the Nudestix family. It’s a teal that leans further green than blue, and it smudges out to a green-toned gray when it’s sheered out. Night Dweller is truly a unique shade that you’re bound to fall in love with.
All six products come in one of our signature Nudestix tins (with a mirror inside, of course), all packaged inside a cute holographic clutch that can be used as both a makeup kit or a bag for a night out.
How do you use the products?
Don’t listen to that “Little Voice” inside your head saying that makeup isn’t fun — “Why Not” play around a little bit? This palette is perfect for the beauty lover on-the-go because it’s inspired by Hilary’s own five-minute makeup routine, but you can also take your time to truly create a masterpiece on your face.
The Daydreamer palette is “All About You” — that is, you can completely customize the products and use them all over your face to create the makeup look of your dreams. If you want a truly monochromatic look, take Body Language on your fingertips and dot it on your eyes, cheeks, and lips; you’ve got a full face done with just one product.
Half Moon is beautiful as a highlight that goes on the high points of your face like your cheekbones, bridge of the nose, temples, and chin, but it also works on your eyes as an inner corner highlight or a wash of transparent, holographic shimmer on the eyelid. Prism also works in a similar way in the inner corner and on the eyelid, and if you’re truly feeling the Euphoria vibes, dot it onto your cheekbones to create a galaxy-inspired look.
Add Bright Eyes to any smokey eye for a gorgeous metallic finish, or use it in your crease as a deep transition shade for a darker eye. Night Dweller, though potentially intimidating, is a super versatile shade that can be used anywhere. Smudge it out along the lash line for a simple but unique eyeliner, build it up to intensity and pack it onto the lid for a bold statement eye, or blow out the edges up past your crease for a gray-toned teal green smokey eye. The options are truly limitless.
