NYX Jumbo Pencil Swatches

Now everybody and there momma’s momma know what “milk” is….No! Not cow’s milk girl!! See, your outta the loop for asking that question.  Because once someone says “milk” they are  talking about the most well known jumbo pencil from NYX!

NYX says:

”                                                                                                                                                                “

NYX Jumbo eye pencils are cream eyeshadow pencils, that are mainly used as a base to make your eyeshadows/pigments/glitter sticks, and pop on your eyelid or anywhere you put your eyeshadow for that matter.   These pencils make your blues bluer, your pinks pinker…etc.  Buuuuuut they will crease like nobody’s business, unlike what NYX says.  You MUST use an eyeshadow primer(we will discuss this later) under them, as to not have your shadows shift or wear away from the crease of your eye.

The jumbo pencils are very creamy and soft, they apply smoothly, though they can be very messy during application.  They come in about different finishes(don’t quote me on this ) matte, and a what seems to me to be a hybrid of a frost and satin(frotin…lmao 😆 ).  One main thing I looove about these is that they do not dry out.  They are also easily de-sticked(will talk about that later).  

There are about 28 shades available, can you say variety 🙂 .  You get a lot of product for the price, and the price can range from $2-$4. I usually get mine from my local Beauty Supply Store.  But they are easily found on ebay, nyxcosmetics.com, cherryculture.com, etc.   For what these are used for; I give them an A-.  I just wish they weren’t so messy, and creasey 🙂

I have 13 of these, but have a purple one on my christmas list…hehehe…
