My NYX Jumbo Pencils and Swatches

Hi Everyone,

I am 100% sure you know about the NYX Jumbo Pencils. They are mostly used as a base for the eyeshadow. I find them all very helpful and useful. I bought a set of 6 jumbo pencils on ebay for 18$ and that means I paid 3$ for each jumbo pencil, isn’t that amazing? Today, I’m going to talk about what I like about these jumbo pencils and what I regret doing.

All My NYX Jumbo Pencils and Swatches

I own a total of 7 NYX Jumbo Pencils. I really love how creamy and soft these pencils are. You can blend them out so easily! I have heard that a lot of people actually depot the jumbo pencils meaning you can melt it down and store the product in a tiny plastic container. One day, I’m going to try this one out and see if the jumbo pencil is still creamy.


First color: Black Bean.
Second Color: Baby Blue.
Third Color: Lavender.
Fourth Color: Pots & Pans.
Fifth Color: Lime.
Sixth Color: Strawberry Milk.
Seventh Color: Milk (I forgot to swatch that one).

Uses of the NYX Jumbo Pencil:

I use these jumbo pencils as a base for my eyeshadows to stick on my eyelids better and for the sheer eyeshadows to look more pigmented.  When applying this NYX Jumbo Pencil, I’m very careful and don’t apply a lot because it will crease later. Sometimes, if I don’t blend it out evenly, my smokey eye tends to look uneven, meaning the eyeshadow will look darker on some places than the other on the eyelid.

You can also use the jumbo pencil to change the actual color of the eyeshadow (see pictures).  For example, you have this beautiful purple, but you want it to look darker. The Black Bean jumbo pencil will help you. Just use that pencil as a base for the eyeshadow and it will darken the shadow on your eyelid.

If you have an eyeshadow that you find less pigmented you can use the white jumbo pencil as a base for this eyeshadow and it will change the eyeshadow from sheer to pigmented.

Pros of NYX Jumbo Pencils:

  • Inexpensive.
  • A huge variety of colors to choose from.
  • Can be used for a lot of things.
  • Looks pretty by itself.
  • Stays on my eyelids all day.

Cons of NYX Jumbo Pencils:

  • Hard to find in stores at a cheap price.

Last Word on NYX Jumbo Pencils:

I find these jumbo pencils so useful, especially when I buy an eyeshadow that is very sheer. That’s one of the reasons why I’m using these jumbo pencils.  All colors are so gorgeous and I want them all, but at the end, I have only used the white jumbo pencil the most. Some of them I haven’t used more than twice. This is a product you would want, but later on would barely use.

Anyway, hope my post helped you in choosing your Jumbo pencil 🙂

  1. Woww Sahar..lovely collection you have..and such nice review with proper usage and swatches……I particularly liked the technique of changing the color of an eyeshadow using these pencils..!! :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:

      1. thanks hun you are such a nice person. hehe yes it is 😛 i have it in 3 colors. red pink and purple 🙂 but never used it o.O

    1. Hun you should always use a primer before applying the jumbo pencil. if you dont apply too much it wont crease but it will help you out alot. lets say you are going to put a thick layer of the jumbo pencil on your eyelid the primer has no chance to prevent creasing you know 😉

  2. Nice review Sahar, i lyk d way u described its use to change sheery eyeshadow into pigmented one…..nice shades as well :snicker:

    1. hey parity………..we are waiting your confirmation for coastals order ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:) today is last day of discount …….if you still want…..pls. confirm to Nids

      1. Hi sim ..
        The discount was till today morning 9.00 am ……I ordered the palatte …..
        shipping charges were more than the palatte :waaa: :waaa: :waaa:

        1. hey shruti…the discount is till 9:00 am EST ie 07:30 pm today our time 🙂
          got this from the website “SALE EXPIRES 11/24/2011 AT 9:00 AM EASTERN STANDARD TIME, USA”

    2. you are right 🙂 i think those are the most important colors unless you are always wearing an olive green smokey eye or seomthing

  3. Nice Review Sahar.. I totally love ur posts.. u have rightly mentioned as “you would want, but later on would barely use”… many a timed we end up buying products and them forgetting abt them completely… :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars:

  4. Looove Lime.. such a pretty shade.. my next JEP for sure. And I’ve found tht these dont crease if you use them over the NYX HD eyeshadow base and dust over it with a powder eyeshadow. Bt you must take care not to apply excess of this. A little but goes a long way. These are very easy to use as highlighters too, esp shades like Yoghurt and Cottage Cheese.
    Nice review Sahar! NYX is getting a lot of love nowdays. :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:

  5. I like this word jumbo. feels like so much product for a pencil 🙂 time to get the eye pencils now. i ordered jumbo lip pencils from Cardin waala..

  6. Lovely Review Sahar. Was facinated with these pencils when i saw your brown smokey eye tut few days back. All the colors are quite facinating.. guess must start with one of the colors in them nd then slowly build the collection.. Which one would u recommend that can be used often?

    1. i personally use the white one and black one hte most. that means once or twice in 3 months haha. but you have to think about the smokey eyes you wear the most. if you like to wear an ”Olive green” smokey eye then buy a green jumbo pencil. but if you have too many sheer eyeshadows buy the white jumbo pencil.
