NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil

Hi everyone! :)

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!


  1. Those look like lovely colors , but I like to have retractable pencils! Its so much eaiser

  2. agreed! i'm very sad they can't retract :(

  3. A white pencil, never thought about it, but it sounds perfect. I tend to use a white eyeshadow.

  4. that's a great choice as well, but i love the creamy-ness of the pencils :)

  5. ohh I love Milk! So multipurpose

  6. it really is! i love how it blends with other colors and acts as a highlighter :)

  7. I've always wanted to try the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils but then I would have to purchase their sharpeners... And I won't be able to use it for anything else! Milk was the first colour to catch me eye.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! ^^


  8. Yes, it is very inconvenient... many people depot the color and use it with a brush but i'm not sure if it's worth going through the trouble :)
