Swatches: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil

Ever since I've jumped on the cream eyeshadow/base bandwagon, I've been searching for a cheaper alternatives that might be MAC paintpot alike. It always doesn't hurt to save my pocket from burning a big hole. Nevertheless, I'm still itching to add Chanel's Illusion D'Ombre into my makeup collection. The cheaper alternative that I feel has comparable quality so far is none other than NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil.

The colors that instantly caught my eye was Iced Mocha, Milk and Yoghurt. The eye pencil's consistency is creamy and they really make perfect eye bases especially for Milk when I'm trying to pull a colorful eye makeup. Iced Mocha and Yoghurt are both colors that can be worn by itself. Remember I was sharing about how MAC's Bare Study paintpot is able to brighten up my eye lids? Well, Yoghurt does the exact same thing, albeit at a much cheaper price tag. Furthermore, the pigmentation of this product is surprisingly good, something that I did not expect from a low-end brand.

I guess the only thing that I didn't enjoy about this product is the lasting power and the fact that it creases.  However, with really light colors such as Yoghurt (my most used champagne base), the creasing effect doesn't really show up that much. If you are looking for the more economical option, definitely take a look at NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil.

Happy Weekend!

    1. Yup...agree with you on that, Carrie! Thanks for dropping by.. :)

  2. I really like these pencils but I noticed the darker ones crease very easily (on me at least) :p Good thing you have a good base!

    1. Same sentiments here with the creasing problem of the darker shades...the lighter ones are better though...

  3. Hmmm I wonder if paired with a good base and using a light coat might lessen the crease factor? I'm hoping so because I'm about to go order a bunch! haha, nice colour choices too!
