NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils



 
So NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil ($4.00) are oversized pencils that can be used as eyeliners or shadows, according to NYX. It’s available in twenty-four shades, ranging from black to blue to yellow.

They work great used alone as a base or layered on top of your favorite eyeshadow base (like Urban Decay Primer Potion or Too Faced Shadow Insurance). I used them as a base alone and didn’t experience any creasing or fading.

I like the Jumbo Eye Pencils as eyeshadow bases the most, because their jumbo-sized points are easier to use in applying it all over the eye. Also, it is so big that it is hard to use as an eyeliner. You can use them alone or layered on top of an eyeshadow base, I normally use the Urban Decay Primer Potion, but others also work. It isn't necessary to a primer, although if you have greasy lids, it is recommended as they can crease.

I like the fact that there is such a variety of shades and they are only $4.00, another good thing about these jumbo pencils is that they do give make your eyeshadow appear more vibrant as well as help your eyeshadow last longer.

There is one downside, sharpening them. I have already managed to break the tip of one of my pencils... the only thing that will sharpen them is the NYX’s Sharpener. Although, it's has two holes, one for small pencil and one for the jumbo pencils, and its only $4.00, so it won't cost you alot. 

Have you tried the Nyx Jumbo Pencils yet? What did you think?
