NYX JUMBO PENCILS ™(about $4.50 or less)
0.5g or 0.18oz

CLAIM: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. "

FIRST IMPRESSION: The First time I used these it took some experimenting. The reason for this is because most people including me use this as a base on the eyelids, and being that it is creamy, it may crease on your lid. Besides that they are very pigmented and really help brighten ur eyeshadow or make it pop. My favorite everyday shades are black (black bean) and white (milk). 

HOW I WEAR IT: The way I use this product is mostly as a eyeshadow base. The thing you have to remember when using this is you should use a pretty good primer underneath. (URBAN DECAY PRIMER POTION, MAC PAINT POTS, TOO FACED SHADOW INSURANCE...ETC) When applying this to your lid, do not go above your crease, staying on your lid keeps it lasting longer and less chance for creasing. After applying it pat it and blend the edges with ur fingers for a nice smooth application.

QUICK TIP: Using the black as a base, apply a shimmery iridescent shadow or glitter; makes it look awesome! ;)

LAST BUT NOT LEAST: Overall I really like these pencils,I use them almost everyday. The only thing I would say is because they are quite fat, they wont fit in most pencil sharpeners, but you  can purchase one from NYX($3-4) comes with 2 diff. sizes

SCORE (1-10): 7.5
