What the brand says: A radiant eye liner that also doubles as an eyeshadow, this is the most voluptuous pencil yet! NYX creamy Jumbo Eye Pencil glides on effortlessly – no pulling tugging or fading – and come in a rainbow of vivid hues. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils can be sharpened with a sharpener that has an opening for a large pencil.
Packaging: The eye pencils come in the regular eye pencil form but are jumbo in size and have a wide tip. The white pencils need to be sharpened, so I wished they provided one sharpener with it like the sugar lip crayons. Overall, the packaging is very classy and the transparent cap secures the tip making it travel-friendly.
Texture: The eye pencils are very creamy and glide on smoothly. Although care should be taken to not apply a lot of pressure or the tips can break.
Shade: I picked up 2 shades from the range- ‘Yogurt’ and ‘Slate’. Slate is a grey colored eye pencil with subtle shimmer to it that makes it look metallic on the lids. The shade ‘yogurt’ is a rose gold colored pencil with subtle shimmer to it as well that makes it look really pretty and a highlighting kind of product! It can be used alone or on top of your eye shadow in the middle of your lids to add a highlight.
How I use and staying power: I love smokey eye looks and slate was a great shade, I had to own it! I used it on top of my black eyeshadow (the one from Maybelline nudes palette) and it adds a pretty metallic silver gradient. The shade yogurt can be used alone for a subtle makeup look or on top of your regular eye shadow. It is quite a neutral shade.
These pencils can be used as eyeliners as well as eye shadows and smudging is its feature which is certainly not a con. You can create different looks with it. I totally love these pencils more as eye shadows. They stay pretty much all day long and don’t smudge once you have already smudged it enough (when using as a smudged eyeliner). You cannot create sharp lines with it and even if you do you need to smudge it since they are meant for that. They are not waterproof, but they don’t actually come off with just water; you need a makeup remover to do the job.
