NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Yoghurt Review
Hello Dear beauties!!
NYX as a brand is pretty close to me. I don’t have a lot of products from NYX, but whatever I have got; I am in love with them.
Here’s one more product which I love with all my heart. It’s the NYX Jumbo Pencil in Yoghurt. This pencil was a gift from Kirthi; so it’s even more special. Now I don’t know the exact price of this pencil but it is around USD 3-4.
Check out what NYX has to say about their Jumbo pencils and the variety of shades available here. ( http://www.nyxcosmetics.com/index.php?pf=JEP )
Here’s my Jumbo Eye Pencil :
The tip is a little blunt now. I am yet to sharpen it.
Here’s the Jumbo Eye Pencil – Yoghurt swatch. It’s swiped twice here. (I have clicked these pics a day after Holi, so my hands are still pink!!) 😀 😀
Good news first!! This is the closest, cheapest dupe of MAC Cream Colour Base in Hush!!!!
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil as Eye shadow base:
I don’t use it as an eye shadow base at all. I cannot recommend this over MAC CCB of course. But the resemblance is too much to ignore. The pencil is unbelievably creamy. It just glides on my lids. It’s very very easy to blend, and I only require 1-2 swipes of it to cover my entire eye lid, if I want to use this as an eye shadow base. But because of its creamy nature, it creases a lot and it’s not at all smudge proof. It does not SET as an eye shadow base should. I can take this off my eye just by swiping with a clean tissue. No cleanser required. So the staying power of eye shadows is neither increased nor reduced. Moreover, it’s too frosty, it eats up my eye shadows. See the swatch here:
See how the eyeshadow is not even visible on the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil . It’s as good as not applying any.
As an eye shadow base, this gets 1 star from me.
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil as an eye liner:
It’s really jumbo!! So it can be used to draw a thick line which you will smudge later. It cannot be used as your regular liner. But the black one they have will make an excellent base for smokey eyes. This one I use to just add that glossy finish to my bare lids, especially when I want to tone down my eye makeup. Just draw a thick line, blend, a thin line of liquid liner and mascara, and my daily eye makeup is done!!
If you want it to last though, you HAVE to use primer. Otherwise it disappears within 2 hours.
As an eye liner this gets 3 stars.
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil as a Highlighter:
It’s an excellent highlighter. This particular shade is good for medium to dusky skin tones. I use it to highlight my brow bone, cheek bones, nose and chin. It’s very easy to blend, so I can use it anywhere on my face.
Because it’s a pencil, it’s very easy to use it on the Cupid ’s bow. You just dab a little on the arch of you lips and blend with your finger. Awesssome results!!!
I reach out for this mainly for highlighting. As it is a pencil, it’s very easy to draw an arch below the eyebrows, or a straight line along the cheek bones, and then you just blend it out. Very precise application!!!
As a Highlighter it gets 5 stars from me.
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil on the waterline:
This works very well on the waterline also. It’s pinkish and shimmery, so it just pops on my waterline. Although, if you have sensitive eyes; you must be careful while putting this on the waterline. Also, as I use it all over my face, I make it a point to clean the tip before using it on my waterline. Some caution needs to be exercised.
On the waterline it gets 5 stars from me.
So the average rating for this Jumbo Eye Pencil in Yoghurt comes to :-* :-* :-* + 0.5
Will I repurchase it? YES!!! It’s an excellent highlighter and looks awesome on my waterline. I love this pencil.
Hope you liked the review.
