NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean
NYX jumbo eye pencils is something we all want to possess. When Cherry Culture was having a sale a few months ago, I did not forget to pick this jumbo pencil amongst other products. The only thing I was confused about was which shade to pick up. There are 28 shades available and each one is a beauty. Since, I am not much into eye shadows and do not wear eye shadows on a regular basis, I skipped Yoghurt and Milk, and other “wow” shades because they are believed to act as good eyeshadow/eyeshadow bases. Instead, I picked up NYX Jumbo Pencil in Black Bean because I thought I could use it as a kohl. Here’s the review.

My Take on NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean:
This jumbo pencil is super-creamy and glides on the eye like a dream. It does not irritate or sting the eyes. I mainly use this pencil as a kohl on my waterline and though it does smudge quickly, it does not give raccoon eyes and does not require eye makeup remover or baby oil to get rid of it. If I feel that it has slipped from the water line, just one swipe with a clean handkerchief or tissue is enough to wipe them off without a trace and they make no fuss while getting cleaned.
Another feature about jumo pencil is that this can be used on the upper eyelid area and smudged a little to give a smokey-look kind of effect, but please do remember, that it won’t last longer, just a swipe and it’s gone, but nevertheless, I love to use it both, on waterline as well as upper lid area because even though it smudges badly, it does not give me raccoon eyes. It does have a fragile plastic cap, which breaks easily and no prizes for guessing that mine has already broken.
Summing up the pros and cons:
Pros of NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean:
• Super-creamy formula that glides on the eyes like a dream.
• Does not sting or burn the eyes.
• Can be used both the waterline and the upper eyelid.
• Can be used to create a smokey effect with a little smudging.
• Price is pretty good.

After a single swipe, without any cleanser or eye makeup remover, just a swipe with hand, and ta-da, it’s gone.
Cons of NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean:
• Smudges too easily; it slips from the waterline super easily.
• Fragile cap that breaks easily.
• Non-availability in India. I checked out the urbantouch website right now, where NYX jumbo pencils are available, but Black Bean is out of stock. I checked the NYX OFFICIAL WEBSITE and it is SOLD OUT there as well, so it speaks volume about this particular shade of NYX jumbo pencil.
Will I Buy NYX Jumbo Pencil in Black Bean Again?
Yes, of course, it is a must-have for me now.
