In India these retails for 425 INR but can be bought cheaper at cherryculture or b2nshop.com
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.
Finally I got a day off after so long & while munching yummy crispy homemade French fries today, this Jumbo eye pencil suddenly striked me…. Enough to feature it today!
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils are basically plastic bodied fat chubby sticks with a *flimsy cap* (Mine got badly scratched the moment it fell down for first time from low height).Leaving behind the minor packaging complaint, I have all satisfactory report about the fatties.
These are multi-tasking ones: eyeliner, eye shadow base & Cream Eye shadow. However I don’t prefer them to use as eyeliner looking at the big blunt tip which doesn’t get sharpened into a pointed precise one enough for a thin line. But for thicker lines they work perfectly fine (I am more of a thin line girl). The best way is to use them as a base for your eyeshadows / pigments or just play around for a nice smudged smoky look. Texture wise they are soft, creamy (not overly)& glides smoothly on lids. The pencil packaging makes the application job so very easy eliminating the requirement of any king of brush or finger. Gets smudged in a jiffy as they don’t shift gears to a smudgeproof or waterproof formula but are water resistant. They don’t crease on my super dry lids but starts fading after 6-7 hours of wear though not very evidently but noticeable upon close inspection. Wearing them over a good primer sort out the fading issue for me & they stick to my lids for good beyond those 7 – 8 hours or so which I get from most of the eye shadows. Overall these are a winner for me with multipurpose usage, nice creamy texture & good wear time without any creasing issues.
French Fries is a gorgeous radiant shimmering Bronze, perfect for my brown eyes. It adds warmth & subtle glow that gives a nice pop to eyes without catching undue attention but gives a festive swing. Very apt for bridal & ethnic wear. The shimmers are so well blended into the texture are barely detectable & transforms into a pearly sheen on eyes without going OTT. I love wearing this to work every day. The shade gets blended with my yellow undertones very well. But it gives a slight discomfort on my waterline. The NYX Jumbo eye pencils have some very pretty neutrals which gives a nice sophisticated definition to eyes. I am also eyeing Bronze (Not sure how it differs from French Fries but looks beautiful in swatches) & Yogurt from the range.

A gorgeous shimmery golden Bronze flattering on Indian skintones. Very pretty neutral but gives a festive swing once on eyes. With soft, creamy, easily blendable & long wearing formula this is a multi-tasking product as a Cream Shadow, Eyeliner & Eye Shadow Base. The range has some very pretty neutrals & shades from other colour families to check out. Highly Recommended!
