Cherry Culture has a 20% off storewide sale on now until June 30. It's a good opportunity to pick up some NYX stuff. I ordered last time they had this sale. I know the NYX jumbo eyeshadow pencils are a big hit and I thought I would help you guys out by providing some swatches and a review of these. These retails for $3.25 (on sale) on the Cherry Culture website, they come in a variety of colours, I have 7 here to show you. These pencils are a pretty cool product, many people them as eyeshadow bases, however I would recommend using a eyeshadow primer underneath them to keep them from creasing throughout the day (as they do crease on me). These can also be used as your eyeshadow alone on your lids.
Milk - is a pure matte white colour. This is a must-have from the jumbo eyshadow pencils in my opinion as you can put any colour over this.
Cottage Cheese - is the shimmery version of milk, really pretty and perhaps more wearable if you don't like the stark white look.
Yogurt - shimmery peachy colour, really pretty and one of my favourites, goes with a lot of the eyeshadow colours that I like to wear.
Black Bean - matte black. If you going for smokey looks, this would make for a good base. Sorry about the swatch, it is more pigmented than that, there was some moisture in mine and it didn't apply the best.
Horse Radish - Shimmery light green, not very versatile, but still a cool colour.
Dark Brown - matte dark brown colour. I found this one to be more pigmented and smoother than black bean. I really like this one.
Pots and Pans - shimmery silver, this one almost has a duo colour in it, looks blue in some lights. Really pretty and I use this one a lot.
* A pencil that I would recommend that I do not have myself is French Fries, it's a shimmery brown, would really work well with neutral, everyday looks.
These are really a good buy for the price. They are very smooth and very pigmented. They also blend very nicely on your lids. I know some people have compared these to the MAC shadesticks, I do not own any of those myself. If you have oily lids, I probably wouldn't recommend these are they are very smooth and would probably smudge and move around a lot.
I haven't got to the point where I need to sharpen mine but I am wondering how you guys sharpen these? I know NYX sells a sharpener and I have also seen youtube videos of girls who have depotted their pencils, which looks like a good opinion as well. For my Canadian readers, I know some Rexall Pharma Plus stores sell NYX, but the stock is pretty limited, Cherry Culture does offer free shipping for orders of $40 or more, but that is US only, shipping to Canada is unfortunately by weight and last time I ordered I think I paid like $10 or so in shipping. The only downside that I have about this product is the packaging, I keep these in my bathroom and I feel like I get a lot of moisture that builds up in the cap and when I open them up, it's just wet inside, this could be ruining the product and is just icky to touch. So I guess you have to keep these in a cool place, I haven't experienced this with any other product before.
