Nyx jumbo pencils review.

NYX JUMBO pencil is just the tool if you want to paint on your lids :P ... they come in all sorts of rainbowy colors and rainbows remind me of CANDIES (:P)...However today its going to be a Review on NYX jumbo pencils.

How NYX describes it:
A radiant eye liner that also doubles as an eye shadow. Made with a blend of mineral oil and powder, our creamy Jumbo Eye Pencils glide on effortlessly—no pulling, tugging or fading—and come in a rainbow of vivid hues. Some call her chubby. We say voluptuous. Available in 28 shades.

My opinion:

I was always very eager to own the NYX jumbo pencils. I would always be allured by the tempting colours but sadly they were all locked up in my computer screen . One day when I was roaming Dubai I found these and was APPARENTLY so excited but got only 2 of these :(( , but still I am quite happy with what I have :)) ...These pencils are super rich and creamy . Like NYX describes it , it can also be used as an eye shadow double , especially for teens who are into makeup it is a great product to come in handy. You can just apply it on the go either with the fingers or a brush . They can act as a base for eye shadows and is quite blendable.They come in 28 shades which is a large variety to choose from and can last for about 1 year if used daily. The staying power is of 4 hours maximum which is not good for a working woman. One things that bothers me is that they crease horribly so to prevent that either apply a good base or do not use too much of the product.The pencils are odourless and the color payoff is really good. The packaging is good and so they are easy to carry with you but the plastic caps are fragile , they break after a few days


  • The pencils are creamy
  • The price is good
  • Come in handy if you are not willing to spend time on application of proper eye makeup.
  • Good color payoff

  • Crease horribly
  • The plastic caps break.

Swatches and pictures:

I got them in color namely purple velvet and strawberry milk each for 16 dirhams or $4.50. Nyx is available in all the Lifestyle stores in dubai , or can be ordered online from , or
