Another day another review. You might have seen this one one of my haul posts a while back and I think I’ve now tried it out enough to give a little review.
Basically the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil is a very creamy and pigmented eyeliner that can function as an eyeshadow as well. Now before I get any further into this review I have to say I haven’t really used these as eyeliners at all. While the color I have is quite neutral these come in a bunch of crazy colors I, personally, wouldn’t use for eyeliner. However this makes a great eyeshadow base or you can even wear it alone when you’re in a rush.
When I’m not in a rush I like to really take my time with doing my makeup as I enjoy doing it. On most week days, that isn’t really the case though as I have quite a few early morning lectures. I’m definitely not a morning person, so I’d rather get a few more minutes of sleep than doing my eye make up. I’ve really enjoyed using this eye pencil for days like these. The shade 611 Yogurt is such a neutral shade, you can’t ever really go wrong with it. All you need to do is take your pencil and apply a bit of this to give your eyes a natural shimmer and make you look more awake. It’s a very light brown, almost beige with a hint of light pink.
On days when I do have time I really like to use this as an eyeshadow base. It’s very creamy, so it sticks and will definitely keep any other eyeshadow in place. I’ve noticed that my eye makeup looks a lot better at the end of the day if I applied this first.
I would only recommend applying this on your lid though, since it is so creamy it might crease a bit otherwise.
Overall I think this is a great product if you’re in a rush but don’t want to skip eyeshadow entirely or it also makes a great base. I wouldn’t use it as an eyeliner though because it’s a bit too creamy for me and I’m afraid it might smudge but that’s just my opinion. I’m pretty confident I will buy this in a few other shades as well though.
Have you ever tried this? What is your favorite NYX product?
