NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil


I may be a bit late on the bandwagon but ever since I tried the NYX above and beyond full coverage concealer I have wanted to try some more NYX products so I picked up the NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil to try. I have always been meaning to try them but as I have never seen NYX products in real life I have always been a bit more cautious to try them as I usually like to have a swatch of the colours before I but them. But I thought that as they were so cheap I should give them a go. I read quite a few blogs about all the different shades and picked my favourite colours from their pictures. 

There are 31 shades to choose from and they retail for £5 each. 



NYX says: A radiant eyeliner that also doubles as an eyeshadow. Made with a blend of mineral oil and powder, our creamy jumbo eye pencils glide on effortlessly with no pulling, tugging or fading and come in a rainbow of vivid hues. 

While I was researching, trying to decide what colour to but I saw a lot of mixed reviews some said that they wore away too easily, some said that that there was little pigmentation from them. I feel that these make a great base on the lid or are a good wash of colour if you don't want anything too dramatic. 

They do crease and I don't have the oiliest of eye lids in fact I have the complete opposite but they do crease, which is why I find them good as a base as then it doesn't matter if it creases. I suppose if you did want to wear it on its own you could wear a primer under it, which would also help with the pigmentation although I have not tried this yet. 

Now lets get on to the actual products... 

Strawberry Milk

I have been dying to get hold of this shade and I am so glad that I have it in my life now. As a big fan of the colour pink it may be a surprise for you to know that I own only one other pink shadow apart from the one above so I thought that this would make a nice little addition to my collection. 


Pure Gold: 

This is another favourite of mine, you can never have too many gold tones in my opinion and this one is no exception, as the pigmentation isn't too strong you can have a lovely wash of colour over the lid without it being too obvious. 


Cashmere: 

I love love love this shade and have been using it nearly everyday for work (when I can be bothered to wear eyeshadow), it gives a lovely glossy look to the lids and makes the skin look a lot more radiant. I love this so much that I will be featuring it in a Little Mix look tomorrow if you want to come back for that. This is definitely one to get. 




I am so happy with all the shades I picked and would like to thank all the bloggers that have written about NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow pencils but I looked at so many I can't remember now. 

I will definitely be getting some more in the future. Do you own any NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow pencils let me know which ones you'd recommend in the comments. 

See you tomorrow.

  1. Oh the gold shade looks amazing! I'm a little afraid to try these though since any eyeshadow I put on my eyelids creases after a few hours, primer or no primer haha

    1. Although I love these I don't think I would recommend them if your eye shadow creases really easily usually.

  5. I used to be obsessed with the Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencils. It was so fun to be able to choose out of such a big collection of colors. Over the years, I don't find that I have nearly as many, but I think I would like to get more after seeing this post :)

  9. Ooh, the gold looks gorgeous! I couldn't live without the Milk shade, wearing it under bright eye shadows really makes then pop.

    To solve the creasing problem I use NYX HD Eye Shadow Base underneath, it's my holy grail primer.

  11. I have the NYX jumbo pencil in Milk, which everyone uses as a great white eyeshadow base. It makes colors pop when you apply other shadows on top!
