Six NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils



These NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils featured high up on my shopping list when I was in Miami last November after seeing them featured by US beauty bloggers and vloggers since...well, forever!  NYX wasn't as available as I expected it to be, but I came across a small stash in an ULTA and bought most of the colours they had on sale as there was a buy one get one half off deal on the go.

I adore these pencils and will be stocking up next time I'm Stateside.  They are soft, creamy, pigmented and long lasting.  I prefer to use them as an eyeshadow base rather than on their own, but I do sometime use Yoghurt all over my eye and dash.

Below are swatches of (from L-R): Bronze, Cottage Cheese, Slate, Milk, Purple Velvet and Yoghurt.


I really couldn't say which one is my favourite, but Slate creates a beautiful smudgy smoky eye.

Have you tried NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils? What colours do you recommend I try next?

  8. @nav - snap!

    @Cydonian - ooh I must get my hands on Iced Mocha, I such a taupeophile!

    @Jude - Yoghurt is gorgeous, these aren't too bad to be honest - I can use them on their own, but their staying power increases with a bit of powder eyeshadow over the top - they pretty much last my work day.

    @Tru - I know! I've had these for a while but don't show them the attention they deserve!

    @Evo-o-lution - oops, sorry to be an enabler!

    @Priscilla - Oh you lucky thing! I definitely plan to expand my collection too!

    @Saffi - oh thanks for the recommend - is that the lady behind oh jhoy beauty blog? Oyster sounds v interesting...

  10. I have a bunch of pencils, I like them. My next used after Milk is Lime, a pretty light shimmery yellow-green. It's a perfect base for the lime-colored shadows I often wear. I'm particularly fond of wearing them together under my lower lashline. :)
