nyx jumbo eye pencils

you guys know how much i love natural eyes and neutral palettes when it comes to eye products. well i stumbled across these the other day whilst browsing the cosmetics aisles in walmart and honestly couldn't resist first of all because of the gorgeous colours and second because of the huge sale stickers attached to them - there is no way i can pas up a sale, i think its genetic lol. 

the nyx jumbo eye pencils are like massive make up crayons or the eye version of the revlon just bitten kissable balm stains. this format makes them so easy to apply even if you have a shaky hand. the formula itself is great, really creamy which means them blend heavenly not just across the eyelid but with other shades too. i picked up five shades, three of them on sale-score!; yogurt - a pink champagne colour, iced mocha - a cool toned brown, french fries - a warm brown , rust - almost cranberry shimmered shade and bronze - a rich copper with orange tones. for me they last well but i did use an eye primer first just to avoid creasing and movement. the other great thing about them is that the colour selection of the range is huge everything from grey to lime green to purple, so there is definitely a shade for everyone :D
