I just wanted to share with you my collection of Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencils that I have. If you don’t know about these, I suggest you check them out. Nyx Cosmetics is a very affordable brand, yet great quality! They have a wide array of products such as: eye shadows, mascaras, eye liners, lip pencils, lip sticks, lip glosses, and many more. But, these jumbo eye pencils have to my favorite product that Nyx Cosmetics makes!
What I use mine for?
I love using these as eye shadow bases. I feel like using a colorful base underneath helps the eye shadows pop. My most used one is the white one called, “Milk.” That one is the most popular and I always hear Youtubers rave about that one! I would have to say that I bought Milk because of YouTube. Since I loved it so much I decided to buy more. I don’t usually use these as stand alone shadows, but they can be used that way also.
What Nyx says about them?
“A radiant eye liner that also doubles as an eye shadow. Made with a blend of mineral oil and powder, our creamy Jumbo Eye Pencils glide on effortlessly—no pulling, tugging or fading—and come in a rainbow of vivid hues. Some call her chubby. We say voluptuous.”

The packaging itself isn’t my favorite. I would rather it be a twist up instead on having to use a sharpener. They do have a sharpener that they sell, you can get it here. I have an Urban Decay one that it fits and I can sharpen them no problem. Tip: since they’re so creamy throw the eye pencils into the freezer for a bit before sharpening. This helps prevent wasting product and makes for easier sharpening. You don’t have to follow the tip, I didn’t, but I thought it was a good idea that I wanted to share.
Another thing that I don’t like about the packaging is the plastic top! It is so cheap! Pretty much all the caps of all my jumbo eye pencils are cracked! You can see some of it in the picture above and a close up in the picture below.
