Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencils

Hello! Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend!

Nyx Jumbo Pencils are a great effective budget option for cream eyeshadows. I have three shades with me, Black Bean, Strawberry Milk and Yogurt.

Overall, these are very pigmented, creamy and easy to blend with almost no fallout. They do sheer out easily and can be layered. These crease on me after maybe 5-6 hours but personally, I love using these as a base with an eyeshadow over it. I rarely use them on their own.

Black Bean : It’s a matte black shade that’s very pigmented. This is excellent to use as a base as it’ll make any coloured eyeshadow over it pop. So beautiful to use with blues and purples.

Strawberry Milk : This is probably my least used out of the three here. A frosty baby pink, there’s no depth to the shimmer here and it’s very reflective. I just don’t like this colour on me.

Yogurt : This is a champagne gold shade which again, doesn’t have a lot of depth in terms of shimmer but it is very pretty. Super easy to blend and I generally use this on my inner corner as a highlight.

As a base these are very easy to use and they do last all day, definitely over 8 hours. However, after the initial blending stage, these do not set completely, they still smudge albeit not a lot.

I bought these a long time ago, they’re not used as much compared to some of the other cream eyeshadows I have (except Black Bean). But I think I bought a set of three for $6, there was a crazy sale Cherry Culture and so I don’t really mind it.

I’d say these are worth buying for colours you might not use very often, they do have a lot of colourful options which can also be used as liners. Shades like Black Bean and Milk (a matte white) make exceptional bases to intensify eyeshadows.

These retail for $4.5 each with 5g of product. In India you get these for Rs. 425. But seriously, get these from eBay or Cherry Culture if you’re buying more than one or two, it’ll be much cheaper.

      Ooh yea, French Fries was another colour I had shortlisted when I was buying these. They have really nice copper/bronzey shades. :)

    I really like black bean!

      Staple! So useful when using coloured eyeshadows.

    I own Black Bean and it creases on me like nobody business if I don’t set it with another shadow.

      Yep, they’re not very good on their own. But I specifically use Black Bean to intensify the colour on top.

        Yes, me too. I like it with a golden pigment packed on top.

      Thanks Corinne, do you like any stick eyeshadow formulas?

    OK so I tried a couple of these a few years ago and man, whatever I did or didn’t do, they creased on me within a minute or two! I’ve heard that these just do that on some people, and unfortunately I am one of them! In comparison, 8 hours ain’t bad!

      I generally don’t wear them on their own but yes, I;ve read about the creasing on many reviews as well. They do work very well as a base though. :)

    I like these for when I want to experiment with a shade but don’t want to invest. I have rust and yogurt, like them but they crease on me. If you set with a shadow they do, do better.

      They have so much colour choices, I probably picked the safest colours here but yes they have amazing ones to choose from.

    Yoghurt. Yes please. ❤️ It’s beautiful.

      Not even sure why it’s called Yogurt but it’s very pretty. 😉

    im all about cream shadows +stick form ….like to try these :)

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      I know, I’m so into them right now. Just swipe, blend and I’m done!

    I love all three colors you picked! But the pink one has to be my favorite! What can I say, I love pink shadows. ^_^ I have the basic white one that I bought a long time ago but haven’t used it yet. I figured it would make a great base for lighter shadows. I’ll try to use it and see if I have the same positive experience! Beautiful look on your eyes! Sexy and sultry!

      I’ve probably picked the most safe and boring colours from the range, they have a really great choice. 😉

    Love the Jumbo pencils! I have Milk and use it as a base whenever I’m being fancy. Brilliant texture. Must go have a look at these shades too.

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      Milk is so great it intensifying pastel shades, definitely another staple! :)

  • http://www.kissandmakeupsbeautyblog.com/ Kiss & Make-up

    Great shades! But I’m not just not sure if these are for me… In the end I always go back to powder eyeshadow.

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      For me these are just convenient while travelling if I’m not too fussed about makeup or even everyday to wear something on the go. :)

    I’ve had my eyes on these for a while now, especially the shade Milk. But these look like gorgeous shades too & I love the sound of the formula x
