NYX is probably the number one drugstore brand that I really wish we had here in the Philippines. They are extremely affordable and although most of their products can be a hit or miss, if you are careful, you can find items that you are really going to treasure and may even be worth more than what you pay for. The first ever product that I bought from them are their NYX Jumbo Pencils. I was drawn to the chubby crayons concept and the really cheap price.

First of all you have a large variety of colors to choose from, these are just my top five favorites. :) The packaging is very cute and easy going. You just slide it on your skin, blend it with your fingers, and slide it back again inside your make up pouch, and you're good to go. While the packaging can be its strength it can also be its downfall because a portion of the product goes to waste when you sharpen the pencils, which is why I prefer pots. But the good thing about it being a pencil is you can use these both as an eye shadow and an eye liner.
Its texture is very creamy and it glides on your skin easily. Kind of like the MAC paint pots. It is highly pigmented when applied on your skin at first. It blends easily but you have to be careful because the color can fade away very fast as you spread it on your eye lids. It will leave a very faint color and a lot of shimmer, which I didn't like.
NYX Jumbo Pencils ★★★★☆
Price is more or less PHP 150.00 depending on your retailer
This product has its ups and downs. They are very easy to use and can act as an eye shadow, eye liner, and sometimes even as a highlighter. The colors are wonderful but they can fade easily and crease with out a primer. Primer is a must when it comes to using this product. Overall I still think that this is a good purchase because it is very affordable and fun to use.
