NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencils - Part 1

Hello Mariposas...are you still out there??  So sorry it's been FOREVER since I posted anything, it's been a challenging few months!!  Today I have a great product to talk with you about, NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencils.  I'm sure many of you have heard about these, they are versatile and great as an eyeshadow base under pressed eyeshadows, pigments and glitters or worn alone.  They retail for about $4.49, they are super creamy and pigmented I use them over an eyeshadow primer but I always use a primer first (my go to primer is Urban Decay Primer Potion (UDPP)).  My suggestion when using these is to BLEND them out with your finger or a brush in order to avoid creasing.  My favorite is MILK it can be used to amp up lights, brights and pastels and make an average eyeshadow POP, Black Bean can be used to create an amazing smokey eye!!  You can purchase these here: Harmon Discount  Ulta  Cherry Culture

Below are some descriptions and swatches. Milk is a creamy opaque matte white. Cottage cheese is a shimmery white which would be a great highlight color and inner tear duct. Yogurt is a shimmery champagne, gorgeous!!  Pots and Pans is a bright shimmery silver Hot Pink is an opaque matte well, hot pink :).  Black bean is a super saturated glossy matte black.
