I think I have a growing love for chubby pencils, I’m not sure what it is, first it was Milani Lip Flashes, and now these NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencils are too cute to pass up.
NYX says, “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.”
The pencil is chubbier than regular pencils and it’s made out of white plastic, yet it’s easy to sharpen down when you need more color. French Fries I found to be an odd name — perhaps “burnt fries” might have been a more accurate name for this color. It is a medium-dark bronze shade that could be a good base color for a smokey eye look. Be sure to only apply a sheer layer otherwise you risk creasing.
Overall, I think NYX Jumbo eyeshadow pencils make great bases to an overall look, but I wouldn’t recommend for it to be used on its own. French Fries might not be your cup of tea but perhaps try out one of the other shades and see how it works for you.
If you’re interested, you can get it here for $4.50
