{ Review + Swatches } NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils

Hello all! Wow..I feel like I haven't put up a post in so long but I'm currently in exam study mode *sorry* :( I will definitely be posting more frequently once it's over! Anyway, another NYX product review! If you wanted to check out my first review on the NYX Round Lipsticks just click here.

I LOVE LOVE these Jumbo Eye Pencils from NYX. They are the perfect base for any eyeshadow and really inexpensive. These eye pencils are pretty creamy so I don't suggest applying it on your lids on its own as they may crease but rather as a base for your eyeshadows. They provide something for your eyeshadows to stick on and my favourite part is how they make your eyeshadows way more pigmented and bold!

 L-R: Milk, Yogurt, Pure Gold, French Fries, Lime, Black Bean

- Milk :: matte white. A great base to lighten any eyeshadow as well as making it more opaque
- Yogurt :: shimmery pink-champagne
- Pure Gold :: shimmery gold
- French Fries :: shimmery reddish-bronze
- Lime :: shimmery lime green
- Black Bean :: matte black. A great black base to intensify dark eyeshadows


And this is just an example of how a great base can make your eyeshadows more pigmented and intense.

L-R: Urban Decay "Half Baked", Urban Decay "Half Baked" on top of NYX Pure Gold Jumbo Eye Pencil


Pros:
  • Inexpensive (I purchased mine for $3.99 each)
  • Creamy, smooth formula
  • Intensifies the pigmentation of eyeshadows
  • Great base for eyeshadows to stick on especially if they tend to have quite a bit of fall-out

Cons:
  • Bad packaging. I remember I gently placed the plastic cap on the pencil and it started to crack >.< (You can see from the pictures above)

Overall, they really are great eyeshadow bases and definitely worth investing if you love playing with eyeshadows. I definitely plan on purchasing more in the future! Are there any other eyeshadow bases out there that you guys love? Do share your recommendations!
