I’m currently at the beach this week to enjoy what’s left of summer (while everyone else seems to be posting photos of PSL’s already on Instagram! Come on guys, we have two more weeks to go! :P) Anyway, since I always like to pack light when it comes to makeup, I ended up grabbing just a few essentials for this trip. In the end, this came down to mascara (i.e. my fave from Lancome), concealer (still in love with this one), a brow pencil (I’ve been using the one from August’s Petit Vour box and loving it!), and some multi-sticks. I have quite a few favorites, but this trip I went with W3ll People’s Nudist Multi-Use Cream Sticks…
W3ll People Nudist Multi-Use Cream Sticks
The W3ll People’s Multi-Use Cream Sticks landed in my travel makeup bag first and foremost because they’re so multi-functional. You can use them to add color to everything from the cheeks, lips, and even the eyes. They’re also packaged in the cutest, most compact and weightless little tubes, so they’re very travel-friendly. The stick tubes also make the application process a breeze as you can use them to apply the cream directly on your skin and then simply use your fingers to blend them out – no makeup brushes or crazy clean up required afterwards!
Pigmentation-wise, the sticks offer a ton of flexibly. For natural color, you can apply 1-2 layers for sheer color, or build it up with 3-4 for a more dramatic look for a night out. The color can also be applied in a sheer layer over the eye lids, or packed on for more intense color in the crease. The same goes for the lips! If you’re not a big lipstick fan, you’ll love these. Swipe for a light layer of tint that feels like you’re wearing a lip-balm, or pack on a few extra layers using your fingers for near full-coverage color (that still feels great on the lips!)
And to top it all off, the W3ll People’s Multi-Use Cream Sticks are non-toxic! Instead of using harsh chemicals, they’ve packed their sticks with soothing organic aloe, hydrating oils and butters, and antioxidants to help nourish and improve skin quality. (What more could you want after a day out in the sun?!)

W3ll People Nudist Multi-Use Cream Stick Review
Most often, I’ll find myself reaching for the W3ll People Nudist Multi-Use Cream Sticks when I want to add a natural flush to the cheeks. The oil-based formula makes them super quick and effortless to apply, no matter how my skin is behaving – whether it’s dry in the winter, or oily in the summer. With just a little bit of dabbing, I’ll get a smooth, even finish every time, with zero patchiness.
On the flip side, because these are quite oily, they can add a pretty heavy dose of sheen to the cheeks. I get an almost instantly ‘glowy’ look with these, as if I’d just applied moisturizer. I find this works great in the summertime when I like to look more ‘radiant’. Plus, the formula still manages to feel lightweight and last, so you get the best of both worlds – hydration and a glowy sheen + longevity – with these. However, if you have very oily skin and/or prefer a matte look, you’ll definitely want to set these with a little powder as they tend to emphasize oiliness.
The W3ll People Nudist Multi-Use Cream Sticks also make for the perfect lipsticks, and the handy little tubes make them easy to swipe and go. I have really dry lips and thanks to all the oils, the formula instantly smooths them and moisturizes while adding buildable color. Nude Berry makes for the perfect subtle, my-lips-but-better look, while Nude Rose adds a beautiful, more vibrant pop of color.
And bonus – they’re safe to use on the eyes as well! What I like to do is get a bit of product on my finger, and then quickly but lightly dab all along my crease to add depth. Nude Peach works especially well for this as it’s on the warmer side with nude-brown tones that create more natural looking shadows around the lid.
