NYX Jumbo Pencil Review

I finally got my hands on the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil which I have been wanting to try for absolutely ages. After reading countless blogposts about this so-called wonder, I had to see what all the hype was about.
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil - 617 Iced Mocha (€5.49)

Colour - It's a beautiful shimmery bronze shade which looks amazing worn on its own for an easy and effortless look. Of course you can use this as a base for other eyeshadow to help it last longer and to add some shimmer.

Application - One of the first things I noticed about this product was how smooth and easy it was to apply. I usually use this all over the lids and then blend it out with my finger of a brush.

Wear - It stays on for the whole day but I find it does crease a little after a couple of hours so I would recommend using a primer underneath.

Overall - I'm really impressed and it has definitely lived up to the hype. The only tiny, mini complaint I have is that it's not twistable so I'll have to go buy a jumbo pencil sharpener but for the price, that's definitely fair. They have a beautiful selection of colours so I will be getting some more of sure and I urge you to try them out if you haven't already.

Let me know what you think of them. I'd love to hear your opinions.
