Review : NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil

I know, I KNOW! It has been awhile since I posted a review on my blog. There are a lot things of things going on and I am really having a hard time juggling everything here and there. So, I hope you guys understand that. :) I am trying my very best to not "abandon" my blog though. LOL So anyways, here is my super late review on my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk.

This is how the pencil looks like. It is an ordinary pencil but a JUMBO sized one.
All the information you need is written on the pencil itself. You can't see their the important dates though. [ FORGOT TO TAKE A PHOTO. ] 

Net wt. 5g/ O.18oz
I got the shade 604 Milk. It is a creamy liner that can be used as a good eyeshadow base. 

Here is a swatch of the liner.
It is very white and creamy.

The first one is a swatch of an eye shadow from my Wet N Wild Silent Treatment Trio. 
Second is a swatch of the same eye shadow WITH the NYX JEP as a base. 
And then, a swatch of the NYX JEP In Milk. 

I hope you guys can see the difference. :)

* It is very creamy that's why it glides on your skin easily. 
* You can blend it easily as well. NO HASSLE! 
* It is an amazing eye shadow base. I hope you can see it from the swatches up there! :) 
It really makes the color pop out more and make it look more pigmented. 
* It is affordable. Php 180. 00 pesos is not that expensive, I think. 
and you get a lot of product too.I have been using this for 4-5 months already. 
* Very handy. It won't eat up a lot of space in your kit or purse or whatever. 

* It isn't available locally. BUT a lot of online store sells NYX products already. 
* It won't help in preventing oil in your lids/crease. It is a base not a primer.
[ It never claims to help the make up last longer so I think it isn't an issue. ] 
* In connection with the prior statement, if you don't use a primer under it. It will help the oil build up easier. 

I have heard from a few people that they experienced something weird the first time they sharpen it. I did too! I thought it broke or whatever cause it feels like it did. 
 BUT do not worry! It will come easy after the first time you sharpen it. :)

Will I repurchase?! 
Yes. BUT not anytime soon. 
 I use this as a base and sometimes on my lower waterline as well. It is a good product. Amazing base as I have said. I love using it even with my not so pigmented shadows. :) 

Will I recommend?
If you guys are looking for an eye shadow base, this one is a good one! Just make sure to have a good primer as well. :) 

Overall, I love this product! I think it is amazing! :) Awesome for its price. 

Have you guys tried this product already?

  1. Wanna try the white one!:) Good review sis!:)

  2. hehe white lang meron ako... thanks! :)

  3. A lot of beauty junkies use this as base! Sana magkaron na din ng NYX sa SM malls! :)

  4. Dang, til now di ko pa to' nabibili sis e'. Galing ha, it is so versatile. You can use it as an e/s, e/s base and eyeliner (esp. on lower lashline). Galing ha, it makes the e/s stand out! :) Nice review sis!

  5. true! I bought it kasi I was curious. hehe. YES! SANA!!!

  6. hehe.. it is so versatile! :) thanks ate jen!!

  7. I love using mine as a base or a highlighter on my browbone. Hoepfully NYX will be locally available soon. They have a lot of good products eh :)

    Following you now dear. <3

  8. oooh yes! i think it is amazing as a base. :) and I hope so too!! :)

    thanks! I will make sure to check yours out too. :)

  9. I hope NYX will have outlets in malls. Their products, especially their lipsticks are really popular already.

  10. yes! true! me too! It will be super patok for sure! hehe yeah! minsan kasi nakkatamad maghintay ng preoprders dba?! :)

  11. Di ko masyadong nagets. Hehe. You use it as a base, meaning, parang substitute sa brown eyeshadow when you're using neutral shades?

  12. hehe I use it as a base.. eto muna inaapply ko before eyeshadow na kahit anong kulay kasi it makes the color pop more. :)

  13. May mga napapanood kasi ako na they use the brown shade (same color as their lids) as base. Same effect as primer pala kahit papano yung product. THANKS :)

  14. oooh.. i think pwde din sigurong base yun kasi cream din.. cream shadows kasi maskes the color of the eye shadow pop more.. I use primer pa before this kasi the base wont prevent the lids from creasing lalo na if oily.

  15. Where did you buy it?

  16. look for chedelyns cosmetcis on facebook. :)
