NYX Jumbo Pencils Review With Swatches

Need I say how much I love bright makeup .. Nah I think you peeps already know that :) Some of you have asked how I get the pigmentation to show up so well so I thought I'd give you one of my tips .. the NYX Jumbo Pencils. These babies are so pigmented it's unbelievable.

You can use these as eyeliners, eyeshadows, a base and many more! They are creamy textured and easily glide on . The colour you see is the colour they transfer its really that simple. If I am using them as eyeshadows its only wise to say they need setting, you can do this by either using a similar shade eyeshadow or even translucent powder due to their creamy texture they are prone to crease. You want shocking colour then cream base is the most popular way to go about it and setting them is not a hassle at all if you ask me I'm more than happy to do that for the amazing colour. Milk is in my opinion the most popular colour I love using this on the brow bone when I'm getting really creative. These retail at £4.50 each which again I'd say is an average and affordable price to pay.


Here's just a few of the looks I've created using these pencils:

When I purchased these I purchased them from Cherry Culture  in America I was unaware that NYX products are available to buy in the UK so if you are in the UK and interested in any of the NYX products click *here* to go to their direct UK website.

    1. You really should Hun, yellow is a shade which is so difficult to find and if u can then pigmentation isn't so good but not with this x
