NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils in Milk & French Fries

I'd been after trying the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils for so long, so i was pretty chuffed to see that I'd gotten two of them in the beauty swap i took part in back in April. I don't know why but there is something about jumbo eye pencils that i really like, i just find the idea of being able to sweep them over your eyes like your colouring something in with a pencil very satisfying (just me?). I got the shades Milk and French Fries.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils in Milk & French Fries

Milk is a white shade; it's mostly used as an eyeshadow base as it can really make eyeshadow colours pop and it also really helps the eyeshadow stick to the lid and helps with the longevity of it. You could also wear it alone if you wear brave enough, but i personally don't quite suit the white eyeshadow look. French Fries is a dark golden, taupe brown kind of colour - this could also be used as a base underneath eyeshadow but i prefer to use this either as an eyeshadow alone applied all over the lid, or paired with other colours for a more intense eye look.

I personally like to wear 'Milk' as a base and apply 'French Fries' over the top and blend together, it lightens the brown shade and creates a really nice all over lid shade, add some black eyeshadow into the lash line and blend and it gives you a subtle smokey eye.

The NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils are really pigmented and really creamy so there is no tugging on the eyelid it just glides on. They are really easy to blend too, but i find if you over blend (is that a word?) you can wipe the colour off, so it's better to blend it very lightly - if that makes sense. I'll be honest and say I've not reached for them as much as i expected too but i do like them and i will definitely continue to use them especially on days i don't feel like putting to much effort into my make-up because you really can achieve a easy eye make-up look with these.
