NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils - Review & Swatches
For anyone who doesn't know, NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils are oversized cream eyeshadow sticks that can be used as a shadow, base, or liner. They originally came out with 24 colors -- and have since added a few more that I haven't gotten my hands on yet -- which you can see swatched below.
They retail for about $4 - $7 depending where you get them, and can be purchased from Ulta, NYXCosmetics.com, and CherryCulture.com. They're great quality and come in almost every color imaginable, and for the price, they can't be beat.
I think these are fantastic. They're great quality for the price and are multi-functional. The only downsides are that 1) they will crease if used as eyeshadow so you will need to apply a primer underneath them or a powder shadow over them to prevent creasing, and 2) it's difficult to find a sharpener that they will fit into.
