Today I have a review on the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils in colors Black Bean and Milk. I got these from Ulta for $4.50 each.
Black Bean Eye Pencil
This is a simple matte black color.
The second swatch is where I blended out the color with my finger. It's great for building up a smoky black color.
Milk Eye Pencil
This is a matte white color that's great for highlight the inner corners of your eyelids.
Putting it on: It's very creamy and glides on your skin easily.
How long it lasts: It depends. If you put it on top of your eyeliner and smoke it out, it should last as long as your eyeliner does. This eye pencil is NOT reliable for long-lasting everyday use so if you just use it as a regular eyeliner, it WILL smudge, crease, and transfer to your lower eyelids.
WARNING: These pencils are not retractable and cannot be sharpened (inconvenient, right?). You will need to depot the pencil into a separate container and there are tons of Youtube tutorials on how to do this and they all take less than five minutes.
Although these are not waterproof or long-lasting, they smear very easily and can double as an eyeshadow pencil. NYX has a great range of colors for their Jumbo Eye Pencils and you can check them out here!
