Review - NYX 'Jumbo Pencil' in French Fries

Craving for French Fries and not in for the calories ? Say Hello to "NYX 'Jumbo Pencil' in French Fries".. (On another note, click HERE, if you missed my healthy baked Potato Wedges recipe)

NYX Jumbo pencils are very famous in the blogging industry and loved by many of us .. 'French Fries' is my first jumbo eye pencil ..and am loving it .. I like fuss free, easy to apply eye stuff to wear everyday for work .. I generally wear a wash of color ..Mostly I wear cream shadows as they are quickest to apply with fingers and then blended with a fluffy brush ..The same goes for this chubby stick, just dab on all over the lid and blend n you are done :)



So let's see the good and the bad of NYX 'Jumbo Pencil' in French Fries...



The Good

  • Soft and creamy to texture
  • Very good color payoff
  • Easy to apply 
  • Easy to wear shade will go with everything 
  • Can be worn during the day or smoked out for the night
  • Can be worn on its own or can act as a base
  • Affordable

The Bad
  • Not easily available in Australia
  • You may not like it if you are fond of retractable pencils
  • You may not like if you are not a fan of cream products on your eyes

The Price
AUD 6.70 (at Crush Cosmetics)

Where to buy

    1. Unfortunately everything creases around crease Vita :(..Even the MAC paint pots and also the eye tattoos ..Only UDPP manages to do the job for me .. though I haven't tried any other high end eye primer .. I suggest you should use a primer with this one ..
