I chatted with NUDESTIX founder Taylor Frankel about her top picks from the brand- and then I gave them a go to see if I could recreate the ultimate fresh face.


Taylor Frankel, founder of the iconic cruelty-free cosmetic brand, NUDESTIX, just spilled the tea on some of her go-to products from the brand- so I’m here to put them to the test. Known for its collection of minimalist, multi-tasking makeup, NUDESTIX is changing the game when it comes to beauty.

Inspired by natural beauty, NUDESTIX is on a mission to help its customer base embrace the beautiful in themselves by going “nude”- but better. This means using the brand’s cosmetics as a way to enhance your natural beauty by allowing your skin to thrive and only covering here and there to create the perfect fresh face look. 


Let’s dive into Frankel’s faves from the brand and my thoughts on how they perform:

NUDESTIX Citrus-C Mask & Daily Moisturizer

Formulated to replenish moisture while rejuvenating and nourishing the skin, this moisturizer can be used daily, every morning on clean skin in order to boost hydration.

I love how this product has a subtle citrusy scent but the best part is that it feels ultra-hydrating on the skin. Since my skin can get super dry in the summer, this product feels moisturizing and nourishing upon application, in which I love using it as a makeup primer to help brighten and plump. Plus, it features skin-loving ingredients such as yuzu oil and turmeric extract known to help reduce the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and blemishes. This gives my face the ideal fresh, radiant glow and makes for the perfect base. 

NUDESTIX Dewy Barrier Hydrating Stick

If I need a boost of added hydration anywhere on the face, the Dewy Barrier Hydrating Stick is my go-to- and it’s purse-friendly! I love bringing it with me on the go for touch-ups if my skin is feeling dehydrated. This product is specially designed to give your skin the ultimate glow thanks to a formula that includes Ceramides, which will help lock in moisture for a radiant finish.

You can also use this product as a makeup primer- which I do from time to time- in order to wake my skin up! I love how it gives me a glazed, dewy look all from one simple swipe.  

NUDESTIX Nudescreen Daily Mineral Veil SPF 30

SPF is a must-have all year round and this Nudescreen Daily Mineral Veil SPF 30 is the ideal oil-free SPF moisturizer formulated to help protect against harmful UV rays from the sun. I love using it before I apply my makeup to ensure my skin stays protected from the environment, but you can also use it as a daily moisturizer. Plus, it comes in 5 shades that range from “Cool” to “Hot.”

Frankel loves the tint-free “Cool” shade- which works for all skin tones and acts as a non-chalky veil- while I personally gravitate towards the tinted versions, which I find help give my skin a healthy bronzed glow. Nonetheless, I love how lightweight the Nudescreen Daily Mineral Veil SPF 30 feels on my skin, and I use it daily!

NUDESTIX Tinted Cover Foundation 

When it comes to foundation, the NUDESTIX Tinted Cover is a holy grail item for Frankel- and I can see why! This foundation lets your natural skin shine through while offering buildable coverage. Designed to even tone and provide a naturally flawless finish, this has become my new go-to foundation for a fresh face. This is because it feels lightweight when applied, but my skin looks brighter and more refreshed thanks to skin-loving ingredients that blend in instead of just sitting on top of my face. 

NUDESTIX Tinted Blur Foundation Stick

For added coverage, I love going in with the NUDESTIX Tinted Blur Foundation Stick which features a cream-to-powder formula that helps conceal blemishes, pores, and discoloration. Since I have some hyper-pigmentation spots on my face I love going in with this product to add an extra layer of coverage just to ensure my skin tone looks even. Again, it’s super lightweight which I love- this doesn’t feel cakey at all, even layered on top of other products!

NUDESTIX Nudefix Cream Concealer

I love how creamy this product is, so I can see why it’s one of Frankel’s must-haves from the brand! Since it’s a liquid concealer, it’s super easy to apply with the built-in wand yet it’s ultra-blendable and buildable to cover any blemishes or spots. I have dark under-eye circles so this is great for concealing them!

NUDESTIX Nudescreen Blush Tint SPF 30

As one of the brand’s latest innovations, the Nudescreen Blush Tiny SPF 30 is changing the game! This fresh color tint for the cheeks, eyes + lips helps protect from daily UV damage while providing a subtle- yet stunning- flush of color. This is the ultimate fresh-face must-have because it’s buildable and can be easily applied on the go. I love how it comes in several shades but Frankel’s fave is Sunkissed, which is a gorgeous nude/pink color. 

NUDESTIX Nudies Matte (Picante, Sunkissed, Naughty N’ Spice)

An all-time fave of mine, the Nudies Matte All Over Blush and Bronze Colours are ideal for adding the perfect pop of color to your cheeks or the contours of the face. Frankel’s go-to shades for blush are Picante (bright orange, coral) and Naughty N’ Spice while Sunkissed (nude/pink) is her go-to to add a bronzy glow to the face. 

These Nudies Matte products are super easy to swipe on or apply with a blush- plus, they’re buildable to your desired pigmentation, making it easy to customize your look. My new go-to is Picante because it’s the ultimate summer blush shade! I also love how these come dual-ended with a brush attachment on the other side to help blend out the product seamlessly.  

NUDESTIX Hyda-Peptide Lip Butter

Frankel loves applying the brand’s Hydra-Peptide Lip Butter for all-day glossy, hydrated lips. I can’t lie- this has become my new must-have essential for super soft, nourished lips thanks to ingredients such as natural avocado and shea butters. My lips also feel ultra-plump and moisturized after use so win-win!

NUDESTIX Sunshine Oil & Body Elixir

Say hello to your new go-to for summer because it’s definitely mine!

The NUDESTIX Sunshine Oil & Body Elixir is the ultimate 3-in-1 Body Moisturizing oil, Sunless Tanning,  and Golden Glow product designed to ensure your skin looks and feels its best. Let me tell you- my skin never looked better when I applied this! It felt soft while looking radiant, and flawless thanks to a skin-loving blend of Coconut oil, Avocado oil, Jojoba oil, and Squalane (among other beneficial ingredients!).

One word: Obsessed!
