Review and swatches - NYX jumbo eye pencils

Hi Beauts.

Today I wanted to share a mini review of a product that I love, and that is the NYX jumbo eye pencils. 

The first pencil I ever bought was in the shade Milk, because I'd watched so many YouTubers rave about how great it was. Slowly but surely I've managed to add more shades to my collection, and I still have my eye on many more shades.

If you're not familiar with the jumbo eye pencils, they are just that - a jumbo eye pencil. They can be used for many things: an eyeshadow base, an eyeshadow, an eyeliner and Milk in particular is great as an eyeliner to brighten up your eyes.

I like to use the ones I have as eyeshadow bases to help bring out the true colours of the eyeshadows I'm using. Using them as bases not only allows to the eyeshadow to pop, but stops any creasing and helps your eyeshadow last a lot longer. If you're going to use these as a base, I would suggest using a small amount and blending into the lid. 

The shades I have in my collection are: 

* Milk - A basic white shade 

* Cottage Cheese - A pearl off white

* Lavender - A pearl light lilac

* Horse Raddish - A pearl mid tone green

* Iced Mocha - A pearl bronzed brown

* Pots & Pans - A pearl mid toned grey

* Purple - A blue toned deep purple 

These are definitely a great product to have in your collection, me can't wait to get more.

Quick rundown:

These pencils are great as a base and just as great worn alone. They last all day, don't crease and add intensity to any eyeshadow.

* Price - £5.00
* Product - 5g
* Shades -  32
* Where to buy - NYX online and some Next stores

Have you tried these yet? What shades would you recommend?
