NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Yoghurt Review, Swatches

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 NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Yoghurt is a nudish pink/champagne coloured creamy pencil with frost finish.

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!!) 😀 😀

Now comes the review:

Good news first!! This is the closest, cheapest dupe of MAC Cream Colour Base in Hush!!!!

See for yourself. Here are the swatches: (Both products swatched 2-3 times.)

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.

  2. hey Mrunmayee,,,..nice review..really like this shade..infact i too have small eyes..so i guess if i also apply dis on my waterline my eyes wud open up a abit.. :)..but i guess we do not get NYX in india.. :(..hey can u suggest wht shud i do with my eye make up..i mean my eyes shape is small…. and wht colours wud suit me which can make thm poop up..:)which basic product shud i use as i m fairly new “make-up addict”,..thnks to IMBB.. 🙂

    1. Hey Preeti!! Firstly i have huge eyes..

      Now for small eyes there are a few tips:
      1. Apply white/skin tone pencil on the waterline, as above.
      2. Curl your lashes and apply mascara. this opens up eyes like nothing does.
      3. Apply a shimmery shadow just on top of the lid, to make eyes look more round and fuller.
      4. Don’t define your crease if you have deep set eyes. If your eyes are small and shallow define the crease very well.
      5. Check Suma’s eye tutes on IMBB!!! :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

      1. hey gurl..thnkx a bunch :)wud dfntly follow des steps..n can i knw wht is CCB??

        (p.s-sorry for my inquisitiveness guys :P.. as i m fairly new in this colorful world of make up.. 🙂 )

    1. I know!!! And they are soo cheap, ke you can get them and use them as base in as many colours as your shadows!!!! :weep:

  3. my eyes are completely fixed on CCB but I am planning to pick it up during september time may be..when it is not super hot. 😀

    But thiw yoghurt shade in particular is so versatile :jaiho:

    1. Hee hee!!! CCB toh is awessome Rati!!! And you know it doesn’t melt at all.. But yeah, it’s frosty, so you shd get it after summers.. Waise my matte shadows toh stay matte forever on top of CCB!!!

      And Yoghurt is awessome!!

      1. mrunmayee actually I am making a genuine effort to finish some of my makeup.. I don’t have space to stock more stuff now plus I havent finished a single thing in my makeup collection :weep: :weep: That’s why buying things with more thought these days.. :toothygrin:

    1. You are welcome Rads!!! They do crease a lot but you can always use primer beneath.. And these will make awessome smokey eyes in every colour under the SUN!!!! :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

  4. Mrunmayeee!!! :* I missed you! :*

    You can buy nyx from crush cosmetics, it is an australia based company, so not only is shipping pretty affordable, it reaches india pretty quickly 🙂

  5. i want theseeeeeee…..small eyes… champagne waterline…opens up…these are like magic words to my ears… :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  6. I had been eyeing this since sooooo loong..and searched it every where, but NYX only has vanished from Bangalore it seems….. :(( Now I am trying to use Maybelline eye studio pencil in white, but it has metallic finish!! 😐 😐 😐 …. :thanks: for the review Mrun!! 😀 😀

  7. i have always liked the concept of a white pencil..i think this might work better during the day as an eye pencil and perhaps in the evenings as an eyeshadow..

    NYX is available in Pune . Dorabjees..pretty expensive I think..I picked up Faces from Pune and the NYX counter was right next to it.

  8. Mrun……….chalo…hum log NYX apne city mein aane ke liye pray karen……….both MAC hush and this yoghurt look very similar…..there’s not much difference na :yahoo:

  9. Hey Mrunmayee, nice tut. but i dont think we get this brand in ngp. can u suggest a nude/white eye pencil to be worn on the waterline and which will be available in ngp?

  10. i wanted n even ordered Nyx jumbo eye pencils in 6 shades actually but the courier nvr reached me 😐 😐 .. now plan to buy 3 of them.. just for a base n as an e/s or liner :haanji: :haanji: :haanji: :haanji: .. awesum review mrun :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: .. u did a gr8 job here.. :victory: :victory:

  11. I have one in oyster.When I saw the swatches on the website it looked frosty pink but it’s actually more lavender pink so the swatches duped.And yeah it creases like hell.But like you said it works great as a highlighter and on the waterline.I also apply it on my lower lash line and smudge it to brighten up my eyes.
