We have seen NYX's Jumbo Pencils in action for so long and web is full of rave reviews with qualities of this favorite pencil of so many makeup experts. How could I not contribute with my review and experience about this awesome pencil.

They say: 'A radiant eye liner that also doubles as an eye shadow. Made with a blend of mineral oil and powder, our creamy Jumbo Eye Pencils glide on effortlessly—no pulling, tugging or fading—and come in a rainbow of vivid hues. Some call her chubby. We say voluptuous. Available in 32 shades.The eminent Jumbo Eye Pencil is sealed in a recyclable eco-friendly case.'

This specific Jumbo Pencil is in 'Milk - 604' and was sent to me by BlancIINoir. It came nicely packed in a hard box with packing material to make the package more secure.

Pros & Cons:

  • Highly pigmented.
  • Cream texture glides smoothly on skin.
  • Blends easily with finger or a brush.
  • Multipurpose - Works best as eye shadow base and eye liner.
  • Keeps the eye shadows same as you applied first for all day long.
  • Enhances the colors of the eye shadows if applied as a base.
  • Non irritant.
  • Might crease on extra oily lids so an eye primer is a must.

Overall Experience & Recommendation:
I read many reviews about this pencil and saw many makeup gurus using Jumbo Pencils by NYX, specially this one in Milk as an eye shadow base for bright colors. I got a chance to use this jumbo pencil and I am now a big fan. I have been using eye shadow primer for some time and it worked great to stop creasing and bringing up the colors much enhanced. But when I used this Jumbo Pencil in Milk on top of my eye primer and applied my eye shadows, they came up way more brighter and enhanced than before. Eye shadows stick really nicely, resulting less or no fall outs and they don't tone down even after 8 hours. Funky and bright eye shadows look absolutely stunning on top of it no matter what brand you use. I have noticed slight creasing if I don't apply an eye primer under Jumbo Pencil when I am using it as a base as I have got oily lids but with a primer, it works absolutely fine. I also apply it on my waterline and set it with a white powder but it does not stay for more than 1 hour.
Overall, I am in love with this Jumbo Pencil in Milk-604 and I am looking forward to try more shades in this pencil.
I absolutely recommend this Jumbo Pencil to people who think their eye shadows do not pop out enough and those who after reading this tutorial think they need it badly. =)
