Along with the Urban Decay Morphine shadow stick, I’ve also been really enjoying my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil ($4.50) in the color Slate. As you can imagine, Slate is a dark gray shimmery color. This is a great color when you don’t want the harshness of jet black but you still want a darker, smokey color.
I personally don’t use these eye pencils on my eyelids as eyeshadows. I have super oily eyelids and these just don’t stay put even with an eyelid primer. However, I love using these as eyeliner on both my upper and lower lash lines as well as my water line.
I have yet to try a NYX eyeliner on my waterline that does not make my eyes water like crazy. Everyone swears by the NYX Slide On eyeliner pencils but I just can’t wear them. They make my eyes cloudy and weepy. Surprisingly, these jumbo eye pencils don’t.
I actually really enjoy wearing this Slate eye pencil on my waterline. It holds up fairly well without smearing or sliding around. And the color is perfect for everyday wear if you think black is a little too much for you.
Do you like the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils? Which color is your favorite and how do you wear yours? I’m also a fan of the shade Iced Mocha.
