That Awkward Moment When You Think You've Blogged Something That You Really Didnt...NYX Jumbo Pencils Review

I would've put money on the fact that I've already reviewed NYX's Jumbo Eye Pencils.  In fact, I'm still not completely convinced I didn't.  But when I was writing a post on more Jumbo Pencil swatches and tried to link back to the review, it was nowhere to be found so I'm reviewing it now.  Apologies if I have, indeed, posted this before.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils are a cult favorite cream shadow.  For around $4 a pop, they're simply amazing.  There's such a wide array of colors that can fit anyone's needs and/or tastes.  
Milk is without a doubt the most popular shade in the line.  It's an opaque, matte white shade that is exceptionally useful in making shadows more vibrant on your lid.  If you a fan of xSparkage or MakeupGeek on YouTube, you should be very familiar with this shade as they're always using it.  Everyone should have this in their collection
Yogurt was one of the first Jumbo pencils I ever purchased.  It's a coppery pink frost shade that looks great on warm skin tones.  
Iced Mocha
I bought Iced Mocha at the same time as Yogurt.  It's a frosted bronze with a little bit of taupe undertones.
Finally, Pacific is a matte periwinkle blue pastel shade.  It looks absolutely gorgeous on the lower lash line.  Especially for brown eyes!

These pencils are very creamy which can be a good or bad thing.  On one hand, they glide extremely easy on the lid with no tugging and maximum pigmentation right off the bat.  But on the other hand, some people have experienced creasing with these because of just how emollient they are.  Personally, I have not, but I can see how someone could, especially if their lids tend to be oily.

Bottom Line:  Amber LOVES!!!!! 

Seriously, if you're new to makeup or you've been living under a rock, you need to make these a part of your life right now!  They're such wonderful tools to have in your makeup arsenal.

You can find more information on these pencils at the NYX website!  There, they're $5.50, but Cherry Culture has them for $3.50 :)
