Review–NYX Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencils with Swatches!

Hello Stars!

I hope everyone is doing well! I thought I’d share some thoughts on the NYX Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencils I picked up in my last Beautyjoint haul. Let me tell you, I had a very hard time choosing just three colours and not the entire collection! I mean, look at what I was faced with! Must have all of the colours!

I already had Milk from the January 2012 Luxe Box and I just loved the consistency and fatness of the pencil! I use Milk as a means of intensifying brightly coloured eye shadows, so I wanted to get a couple of eye pencils that I might be able to use as actual eye shadows which brings me to Sparkle Nude, Purple Velvet and Strawberry Milk ($3.99 USD)!

Packaging: As I mentioned above, I love fat pens and pencils just for writing with, so why wouldn’t I love that quality in an eye shadow pencil?!

Formula: Very smooth and creamy and just glides across the skin. Most of my cream eye shadows are in pots so it’s nice to have a non-messy alternative that happens to have an amazing consistency. It’s actually sort of fun “colouring in” the eyelid as there is virtually no tugging on the skin. Pigmentation is also quite good as my above swatches are also without a primer. I would suggest wearing a primer underneath if you’re planning on wearing these shadows all day as they do crease after a couple of hours (at least on me).

Scent: None

Final Verdict: I don’t know what else to say other than, these are a must in any girl’s makeup library! There is a colour or more for everyone from neutrals to fun and vibrant colours. I especially love the more metallic shades for the upcoming summer season. I can’t get enough of these guys and for the price, they really are a great product!

    1. Sparkle nude was like a must have for me! $3.99 even with a little bit of S&H is still cheaper than what we would pay here at $5.99 plus tax. I love Beautyjoint!

      This is where I bought them on eBay:

      FYI, I was impressed with the seller. Everything was beautifully packaged, and arrived promptly. There are options to buy just one pencil, or three, etc... if you don't want six. I picked up a couple of items and saved on shipping.

    1. Thank you! I figured they were the colours that I wore the most so they'd get some good use.
