Hello Beauties I hope you are all well today :)
Its a long long time since I reviewed my first post on the Jumbo Eye Pencils by NYX I have been using them for about 3 years now on and off
I have always been meaning to get more of them but of course never got round to it as I was trying out so many eye-shadow bases throughout the years :)
Until on day I was in a pharmacy in Dublin and seen them on the stand. There wasn't many left to choose from as they seemed to be a hit where I got them and they were not been restocked for a few days so I grabbed what ever was left which was only these 3 shades :)
There are about 28 shades of Jumbo Eye Pencils to choose from and they cost on €4.99 each :)
NYX State: That these pencils A radiant eye liner that also doubles as an eye shadow. Made with a blend of mineral oil and powder, our creamy Jumbo Eye Pencils glide on effortlessly—no pulling, tugging or fading—and come in a rainbow of vivid hues. Some call her chubby. We say voluptuous.
There is alot of mixed reviews about these Jumbo Eye Pencils
Either they crease too easily
Some of them haven't alot of colour pay off
They make your eye-shadow move
They are not long lasting
But to be honest I think they are amazing for an eyeshadow base :)
They work brilliantly if you use them right !!!!!!
I also think that the pigmentation is brilliant from them :) Some of them are lighter in pigmentation but each shade I own are all very build-able. They are very long lasting and very smooth to work with. They are so so creamy that blending them out is a dream.
As I stated before They crease without a doubt so if you are applying these i would recommend using a primer first please don't plan on wearing these on their own because within an hour you will notice them creasing this is why i have been telling you they work better as bases because you will be setting a cream with powder aka eye-shadow.If you suffer with very oily lids you will find these will crease even with a primer But you can work at this you can apply these very lightly and then you will find they will last longer
Let me go ahead and show you my new shades close up
STRAWBERRY MILK :
I have been dying to get this shade since I started using the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils and to be honest I am so so glad I got it now. This shade is so so adorable and perfect for summer and spring time looks :) Its a super light strawberry pink with little golden shimmers in it :) It does give a frosty finish but if using with a matte pink eyeshadow it looks amazing the texture and payoff it beautiful :) This looks especially stunning on green/hazel eyes. On first swatch it may appear very light but it can be build able.
This is another favourite of mine. A Beautiful rusty gold with tiny gold shimmers :) This pencil is hugely pigmented even one stroke is enough to do the entire lid. Need I say more honestly just look at the swatch itself :)
I love love love this shade and using this alot lately. Its a pure gold eye pencil. This is the perfect base for all your bright gold eyeshadows and really intensifies the gold in any eyeshadow. Gold is stunning on blue eyed people especially and I found the more your bring out the gold the more your blue eyes pop :)
Definitely one to get !!!!
I totally love the shades I was left with :) They are perfect for the looks I like to go for it was like faith that they were they only shades left there :)
I will be going back for more shades and will probably end up with the full collection :)
Have you tried these yet? You can also use these as a liner if you set them with a powder. I also love using the Black in these to create a smokey eye as its so easy to blend all over the lid. If you use these on the lid and do not of over the crease you will find they will not crease at all :)
I definitely thing these are worth trying out :) Let me know what your thoughts are on them :)
Until Next time
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter
