NYX has some really cool jumbo eyeshadow pencils, and since they were on sale at an Ulta I was near, I picked a few up. All of these are from their regular line.

What I love about these babies are how smooth they apply. They have a very creamy texture and dry to a powder-like finish. They don’t pull on my eyelid at all, and are very saturated in color.

L to R: Purple, Milk, Pacific, Cottage Cheese, French Fries

Purple is a dark shimmery purple. Milk is a bright stark white. Pacific is a shimmery medium blue. Cottage Cheese is a silvery white. French Fries is a copper/brown with gorgeous shimmer.

I have used these and some other of their other colors both alone and as a base for other eyshadows. The one thing to keep in mind is these do get a little crease-y, even with an eyeshadow base. The key is to just use a very small amount, and make sure you spread it out thin and even.

The price is totally right also at $4.00 each!

Think I want them all…
