NYX Jumbo Pencils...

Hey guys!

 Today I thought I would do a quick review for you. I recently bought a new NYX Jumbo Pencil and I love them so much that I thought I would share my thoughts on them. The 2 NYXJPs I have are in Milk and Cottage Cheese.

Milk is probably the most well known of the pencils. It is a vibrant creamy white color that can be used for any eyeshadow look. You can't get the pencils in Ireland so my sister bought me the pencil in Milk for my birthday off of Ebay last year. (Click here for a link to a NYX Jumbo Pencil on Ebay!) I love it and I have used it so much!

The texture of the pencils are lovely. They are really creamy and soft and they have an almost slightly sticky feel that help eyeshadows adhere to the eyelid. What I love about the Milk is how it makes eyeshadows that may not be very pigmented become much more vibrant. It makes you get more bang for your buck as my mom says haha :)

I bought my second pencil in Lanzarote. It's in the shade Cottage Cheese. It is a lovely color that is a white as well but has a pearly finish as opposed to the matte finish of Milk. CC is not as sticky as Milk so although you could still put another color on top, I think Milk is better as a base. Cottage Cheese is really pretty all over the lid with a medium toned brown in the crease.
