NYX Jumbo Pens
Continuing with my NYX products, I have swatched the Jumbo Pens that I reach for on a regular basis.
There are around 32 different colours in this range with the famous 'Milk' attaining almost cult like status among many beauty enthusiast.
Black Bean- Black
Dark Brown- Deep brown-almost appears black on my skin
Pots & Pans- Shimmery white colour
Milk- Matt white
French Fries- Copper / gold
Purple- blue based with shimmer
The texture of the pens allows them to be blended easily. Dark Brown is a great colour to use when creating a smoky eye; I tend to reserve Black Bean when I'm really going for a dramatic effect, a la Haifa Wehbe.
Be warned though, these pen's are renown for creasing so I recommend investing in a good eye primer.
The cost of the pens makes them an affordable option for many and I have no doubt that more colours will be added to my collection at sm point in future.
I think Slate, Rocky Moutain Green and Oyster will be on my wish list, if you have any recomendations please let me know.
