NYX CENTER STAGE (JUMBO PENCILS) COLLECTION

NYX CENTER STAGE (JUMBO PENCILS) COLLECTION

As I have previously established: I am a lazy girl when it comes to doing my own makeup and I love buying sets (Default-Economist-Setting) – it’s always cheaper to buy in bulk and who doesn’t love variety?!; Decided I wanted to get an array of NYX jumbo pencils. 
Luckily thedfstore.com stocked up and whilst I was rummaging through the site, couldn’t pass up the offer!

Almost everyone, in fact everyone who loves makeup knows about NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk but hardly about the rest and frankly, yall missing out!
First of all, it came in in a very pretty package, the black lace pouch was trés chic…j’ai absolutement adore ca!

    
  
The Center Stage Collection consists of 6 different shades of pencils which can be worn alone, together, as an eyeshadow base. Imagine the versatility and endless possibilities this collection brings. 

This set consists of: 

Electric Blue


Black Bean


Sparkle Nude


Iced Mocha


Yoghurt


Mil
k
 (most famous for lining the water-line for a bigger eye effect and as Eyeshadow base, the Milk is understandably the most famous of the set).
There two matte colors: Black Bean and Milk. The others have a subtle metallic finish.

Pros:

These pencils are well pigmented, color payoff is super! They are all true to color just as advertised. 

Glides on easily. 

Creamy texture 

Cons
:

When worn alone, it creases over time but stay power is impressive. 

You have to buy the Jumbo pencil Sharpener separate because a random sharpener just won’t cut it.

 
Tips:

• Whenever I want to wear it alone, I use Too Faced Shadow Insurance first before applying this helps it stay till I’m ready to get it off. 

• It does great as a base for powder eyeshadows 

Verdict

3 Nude Pencils in same set isn’t so nice, Nyx coulda done better. 

The Black Bean & Milk makes it worth it tho.
