NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Gold – Review
Hi everyone, I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.
I am reviewing an eye shadow pencil from NYX cosmetics.
These were launched a while back and they come up with too many shades. I do own a few of them. I always gravitate towards metallic shades. They are so good to do your eye make up with and they really bring out the glow. Perfectly matt shades do not make your eyes pop out as good as metallic or shimmery shades do.
A radiant eye liner that also doubles as an eye shadow. Made with a blend of mineral oil and powder, our creamy Jumbo Eye Pencils glide on effortlessly—no pulling, tugging or fading—and come in a rainbow of vivid hues. Some call her chubby. We say voluptuous.
I really like the fact that these guys have mentioned the ingredients on the pencil itself. Here is a picture with all the ingredients.
As you can see, the eye shadow pencil is indeed a jumbo sized product. It would take me forever to finish up this one.
Basically what a jumbo eye shadow pencil is, a really creamy eye shadow made in a form of pencil.
So the pencil is non retractable. This means as you use it, you have to sharpen it. It has this cap which makes it hygienic to store. The pigmentation is really good. The formula is really creamy and when you apply it, it feels like gliding a cream dipped pencil on your skin. It blends like a dream, oh yeah!
This particular shade that i chose is their pure gold shade. However, I feel it is more of a bronze-gold shade. It is metallic but not overly metallic. It gives that sheen to your eyes but doesn’t give it that dramatic effect which pure metallic eye shadows do.
As you can see in the swatches, the pigmentation is good, but the colour doesn’t have a bright pop. It looks very light metallic with bronze-gold pigmentation.
To sum up, I have really enjoyed wearing this. I don’t mind wearing this everyday because the sheen and the colour is just perfect for regular wear.
Quick Tip: If I am not using this as an eye shadow or liner, I put some on the inner corners of my eyes and it immediately brightens up the eyes and kind of brings a life to the whole make up!!
Do let me know your thoughts on these NYX Jumbo eye pencils.
Till then, stay beautiful and keep smiling 🙂
