NYX Jumbo 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.
• Does not need eye makeup remover or baby oil to be removed.
• Does not give raccoon eyes.



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.

IMBB Rating: 4/5.

  7. wow…armed medical college……I hope you come to hyderabad….we are here in hyderabad………….. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  8. hehehee……lucky you…..hyderabad is such a wonderful place…..am sure its way better than bareilly where i get zero options when it comes to shopping :waaa: am actually from bangalore, and before marriage i had no interest in makeup, now that i have become a makeup maniac there are no options to shop :waaa: p.s. do u know any doc by the name col. ritu bakshi?

  9. Nopeeeeeeeee Kanikaaaaaaaa, is she placed at Military Hospital in Hyderabad……..I just know the cardiologist there…..aur koi maloom nahin…and Dr. Radhakrishnan I was very fond of, lekin he has been posted elsewhere 🙁 ..what is your husband’s name….. O:)

  10. Kanikaaaaaaaaaaaa…waise, where all this military hospital and military bases are there na, even there, options for shopping are limited…..we must travel into the city, which is a pain considering the traffic jams :ghost2: :ghost2: :ghost2:

  11. my hubby is Dr.vinay tripathi (major)……U know jomol, i am so addicted to online shopping these days only cos there aint much to shop in bareilly ki galiyaan :pan: anyways, am so glad i came across u….. :pompom: mera din ban gaya :yahoo: am a dentist btw….but post wedding am more than happy with my army wife status 😀 :toothygrin:

        1. I am a software engineer Kanika..and I got married in March this year..My hubby is an HR Manager and he has plans to shift to a manufacturing industry..so I’d be going along and living in the woods or village!! 😛 😛 …Things are in progress….Lets see..

          1. hawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww….nahinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn Kimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii…………shifting to a village….. 😯 😯 😯 😯 😯 😯 😯 😯 😯

            1. me too living in a village almost :struggle: bangalore was so much better …..but back then i was only into window shopping :sidefrown:

              1. ha ha ha…same here actually..I never feel comfortable while SAs keep hovering around my head…I think they should give us some privacy to check what we want…and just be there to answer the questions..

                though I spend more amount while shopping at Germany, I buy most of my stuffs from there just because of freedom from all SAs..I feel comfortable to check the products, test them and whenever I have doubt, I call an SA nearby and ask…

                1. yeah, I feel uncomfortable shopping with a lot of SA’s trying to put in their views and opinions…..there are so many things that I want to buy from Health and Glow, but the SA’s are so distracting that I have to be rude to them always……I just hope they let me shop in peace O:)

                  1. Same thing happens with me!! :(( I enter H&G counter and get intimidated by the bombarding of SAs and immediately come out of the store, without even looking at anything..after coming back home I usually realize that I had to buy this stuff or that stuff etc etc… 😐 😐

                    1. Kimiiiiiiiiii…all the Health and Glow SA’s why they have to behave like that….. :(( :(( :(( :(( :(( but at least they are better than the one Sabrina had to encounter at the Etude House :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:

                  2. for me shopping in malls usually and resulted in confusion…..the yellow lights, the over anxious to help SAs…..the whole confusion of having to buy then and there!!!! SAs are so keen to sell u the stuff they have, and then when u move to another SA praising another brand u get all confused!!

                    at times u get so carried away with all that the SAs tell u…..they lie blatantly!!!! And i so regret shopping on a whim!!!

                    1. Kanika ……even I get superconfused with all of them trying to grab you and pull you towards their counters…..

                    2. and why do they have to deck up their makeup section with a 1000 yellow bulbs??? it might be okay if one is to select night wear makeup, but then day wear makeup and daily wear makeup looks weird under the stadium light illumination!!!! almost all colours look different under those lights…..!!!! esp foundation selection can go so wrong :spank:

                1. yap…Me will be a typical housewife then..he he..I think I’d be happier..I’d be able to spend all my free time on freelance writing and blog!! 😛

                  Or I might start teaching at Universities at Dhanbad..There are loads of them there!!

  12. wow….I am reallly glad we could meet here Kanika……..even I am so into online shopping….almost addictive it is….. :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: we have another dentist in IMBB…rads….though she doesnt practice but she is a certified dentist too….

  13. :yahoo: nice day today!!!!!!! :yahoo: online shopping is dangerous according to my man!!!! :woot: and its true…..even though i have so many lipsticks glosses and creams i end up buying more just cos the site shows a 5 % discount :happydance: and later after a day or two i’m done with one swipe of the gloss nad lipstick and am back to scouting again for a new shade!!!!! :shocked:

  14. You are just like me Kanikaaaa………I can never have enough… :happydance: :handshake: :handshake: :handshake: :handshake: :handshake: :handshake: :handshake: :high5: :high5: :high5: :high5:

    1. yes jomol……me so greedy of late!!!!! :pompom: but i have decided i will control my madrush for cosmetics……my mum is someone who just uses a lipstick and kajal…..that too because i give her the shades that i wasnt happy with :methinks: and now i have educated myself extensively about makeup that i actually have dreams of TBS sale and NYX sales!!!!

      1. dreams of TBS and NYX sales :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: ROTFL…. :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: actually, I do the same, my mom does not use lipsticks, so I give her creams and other things wihch I don’t like :woot: :woot: :woot:

    1. My parents are in Gujarat only Jomol..he he he..but my hubby might be posted in Sindri – Dhanbad…After a couple of years he might get transferred.. 🙂

      1. oh….I liked Gujarat so much Kimi………it’s a colorful place…..but I think only point it doesn’t click with me is the food….I like my food a lot spicier :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  15. Thank you Simmmmmmmmm :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

    1. Parita…..I had once chanced upon this particular which na had a glossy finish and one could peel it off when required to…and there woudl be no smudginess……it was dirt cheap at 55 rupees and the only problem was that it was not from any particular brand…it was a local product which I was scared to use on a long term….if some reputed brand came up with peel-off eyeliners…how great would that be O:)

  21. I have wanted this since so long ,but everytime I try to order it on urban touch ,it goes out of stock :(( The color looks so dark and intense Jomol 😀

    And I agree with Rati,the first picture is just ‘signature jomol’ :tongue: :tongue:

  23. Nids….this particular colour is so intense and I knew it would be super creamy hearing reviews of milk and yoghurt……so I thought I should use it as a kajal…and must-have because Nids….all the kajals that I have used smudge no matter what they claim……and I have a tough time taking them off….but with this, even though it smudges, I have to just swipe it away with clean hands or tissue and it goes away without a trace…that it is a must-have for me…. O:) O:) O:) O:) O:) O:) O:) O:) and thanks for appreciating my clicks Nidsy……main bahut utsahit ho gayi……ab main aur photus kheechungi :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot:

  24. Nids….don’t order these to be used as eyeshadow bases..it creases badly it seems and it changes the whole eyeshadow;s essence……and from where did you order…cherry culture se….. ?:) ?:) ?:) O:) O:)
