Blue Eye Crayon Review

 

 

First things first, I love eye crayons the days. Why, you ask? They are quick and easy to use, can be slipped into the stash and carried, easy to blend and apply. If you are a beginner with makeup or always in a hurry, you got to have a few eye crayons for the extra zing in the daily kajal life. So lets discuss the NYX Jumbo Pencils today.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils can be sharpened with a sharpener that has an opening for a large pencil.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Review

 

See it through my Eyes

When I was scrolling Nykaa, I couldn’t find these particular shades. I had bought these from the original NYX website for my US Haul. Nevertheless, there are some super fun colors to play with and huge array of colors to choose from.

Packaging

We call them crayons, but NYX calls them jumbo, quite true to its name. These are big and chubby, come in sharpenable form with a transparent plastic cap. The body is white with all product info including ingredients on the body.

Shades

I have two shades- Pacific, Baby Blue
Both the colors are blue, but the shades are different. Confused? Well if you see, the PACIFIC shade has a hint of mauve, while the BABY BLUE is actually a baby blue. These can be applied as eye liner and also an eye shadow.

Texture

These pencils are incredibly smooth and buttery. The finish is frosted and not matte. These are perfect to bring a change to the regular daily look. Application on eye lids and waterline is hassle free. It blends easily with a brush. I have blended the “pacific shade” with a brown eye shadow and it has come out beautiful I feel.

Staying Power & Color Pay off

These pencils are very well pigmented and on two swipes, the color looks solid and intense. They stay on the eyes for about 5 hours after which they melt a bit and fade off. I wish the staying power was longer.
