The shimmer factor on this pearly dark champagne colored pencil is so pretty and pigmented. It goes on smooth and can be used as an eye shadow or an eye pencil. I would love to have a few of these in different shades.
This pencil does require a sharpener.
You can see the De Bruyère Beauté Jumbo Eye Pencil in my Glossybox video!
I love this pencil as a simple travel eyeshadow. I rarely travel with powder eyeshadow because they can break so I prefer the stick cream eyeshadows when I’m on the road.
I love that this is a thinner pencil and it’s super easy to apply. One swipe and I’m looking good. I have not been able to master the “flamed out” look but I really don’t need that!
The pigmentation is great and I really like this light violet shade that has a bit of shimmer and sparkle that stays in place. The only bad thing is that you need a sharpener, I much prefer the twist-up sticks.
This little eye pencil is really nice for Fall. Sephora says it’s Taupe but it’s really multi-dimensional and shimmery. You can see in the swatch below that it’s super pigmented. It is waterproof so it’s also got great staying power. I had a very hard time removing it from my arm so I do believe that it will last 12 hours.
The pencil is on the softer side so I did need a nice point to get a thin line. This is not a twist-up so you’ll need a sharpener. I do recommend putting it in the fridge before you sharpen it to firm up the product because if the air temperature is too warm it might be hard to sharpen.
The pencil comes in 25 colors including glitter, matte and shimmer. I’d like to try one of the glitter green or purple shades next.
The full-sized product price is $10 and these pencils are Made in Germany. They are also free of Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates.
I got the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cashmere in the Summer 2016 Kandee Johnson Beauty Con Box and it worth picking up. At only $4.50 I want to try more colors, it comes in 32 amazing shades like Purple Velvet, Milk (white) and French Fries (bronze).
What’s to love?
First, I have to say that NYX is fast becoming one of my favorite drug store brands. Prior to getting a few sample in my Beauty Con Box I hadn’t tried them. I’m so glad I did.
Now for the Jumbo Eye Pencil. This sucker is so versatile. You can use it as eye shadow, eye liner and highlighter. I’ve tried all three.
I love how creamy the pencil is (I’ve always loved cream eyeshadow) and I get no creasing. There is zero scent and the product is super easy to use as it is a twist up. The Cashmere color is shimmery and smooth and looks great on my upper lids. My only wish is that it was made in the USA and not Taiwan.
Overall I am super impressed and will be picking up a few more.
My swatch is a bit weird from my Apple Watch tan line!
This is a cool idea too! People are saying that the eye pencil works even better with a brush so they are putting the product in a pot! How creative is that?
