Yay or Nay Sunday – NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil

On today’s Yay or Nay Sunday, NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in 605 Strawberry Milk.

To me, these are a… drum roll please… NAY….

I was excited to try this because I thought it would be especially useful for doing the waterline in a easy sweep… well I was wrong.

The Nay rating has nothing to do with the colour, it is the quality of the product. The colour is a nice shimmery pink and it very very cute. However, I found that the stick did not glide on very well on the eye. I had apply layers and layers of it for the colour to pop on my eyes. Once on, it was hard to blend. It was if it just dried and left my eyelids feeling rough and uncomfortable. And in the end, even with a eyeshadow primer, it did not last for the day.

There are other NYX products that I enjoy such as some of their eye shadows and blushes, but this jumbo pencil, I will not be repurchasing.

If you want a nice pink shimmery drug store eyeshadow, I recommend getting the l’Oréal Infallible eyeshadows in either Amber Rush or Forever Pink.

you can see the top swatch is after I tried to blend the shadow, it just disappeared… the 2nd swatch is one swipe of the shadow, it has barely any pigmentation. and the 3 swatch is after many passes of the stick to get the colour.
