NYX Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil in Dark Brown Review and Swatches
I’ve picked up one colour just to try out and see my impression, although I was tempted to get a lot of different shades. I’ve got the shade called Dark Brown which looked like the colour I would love and use a lot.
I was really impressed with the pigmentation of this particular pencil, as it is so intense and the shade is buildable. The formula is nice as well, it glides on smoothly and is easy to blend.
I am also so happy about the colour that I’ve chosen as Dark Brown is the exact shade that I love using for my daily makeup look. I just use this Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil on my lid and on the bottom lash line and blend it with my No7 Smokey Eyeliner Brush and MAC 217, add some mascara and I am ready to go.
This is is how the colour looks like with the flash
Staying power is really impressive. My eye lids are not oily so I don’t really have a problem with creasing in general and as for this pencil it has only some minor creasing after several hours. You may want to use a primer if you have oily lids. I haven’t tried it on oily lids yet so I can’t say anything about the staying power on them.
