NYX Jumbo eye pencil

Top to Bottom: 614Lavender, 622A Electric blue, 601 Black Bean,  603 Pots & Pans
Is anyone out there still? *crickets*

I know I haven't posted as often as I would like and it has been almost a week since my last post. I'm super sorry about that. But I have just lined up a few scheduled post so we're good for awhile now!

Onto the review, I know you ladies are just dying to find out what I have to say about these great NXY products I bought.


L to R  Lavender,  Electric Blue,  Black Beans,  Pots & Pans

Okay so how I usually wear these pencils are: I just line my top and bottom lash lines and then mascara and I'm done. I would take pictures of the results but my eyebrows are a jungle right now and I haven't gotten them waxed in awhile.

614 Lavender: This is a pretty pale lavender that almost looks pink from far away. I wore this and 622A Electric Blue a lot this summer since it was such a low key makeup look. The staying power is good, but wear with a primer, even if it's the only thing your putting on your eyes. It's not waterproof and it does rub away quite easily so try and not rub your eyes while wearing this.


622A Electric Blue: This was my absolute favorite pencil this summer. In the picture its the second pencil I bought. It was perfect for the summer bright and pretty and fun. The staying power is good, but wear with a primer, even if it's the only thing your putting on your eyes. It's not waterproof and it does rub away quite easily so try and not rub your eyes while wearing this.

601 Black Bean: This is great for lining your eyes when you want a nice smooth application and a thick line. The picture doesn't do it justice. Its a dark and rich black color.  The staying power is good, but wear with a primer, even if it's the only thing your putting on your eyes. It's not waterproof and it does rub away quite easily so try and not rub your eyes while wearing this.

603 Pots & Pans: This is my favorite for the fall, it's such a pretty grey color. I love it. It makes my eyes just sparkle. The staying power is good, but wear with a primer, even if it's the only thing your putting on your eyes. It's not waterproof and it does rub away quite easily so try and not rub your eyes while wearing this.

Application: These jumbo pencils go on extremely smooth. It doesn't tug on your lid and make crease lines. It's a creamy color. It works better than a cream eyeshadow. I use them as a base for eyeshadow sometimes. They sharpen nicely, just make sure you clean the sharpener after every use so you don't mix colors.

VERDICT: These jumbo eye pencils are a must have for everyone! I recommend everyone to buy it! Seriously best investments ever! You can do all kinds of looks with these. I'll be doing a looks review for these pencils once I get my eyebrows waxed so they don't look like a jungle anymore! You can buy them HERE for $4.50 and they last you for ages! Go buy these now!! Do it you won't regret it!!

I must say I'm very weary of cream pencils after that awful wet n wild cream pencil I bought. But I did purchase a Maybelline liner that's semi-creamy and creates a thin line. I guess I need to retry the cream shadows. Really gorgeous colors, though! I need a grey in my palette! Maybe I'll try it :)
