NYX Center Stage Jumbo Pencil Collection

NYX1

A little while ago, whilst browsing my local Target store, I noticed the glorious NYX stand! I've been really lucky in my local store, as NYX seems to be fairly unpopular, which is a bit unusual as usually the Essence stand is completely destroyed whenever there is a new collection!

Thrilled at the discovery of an untouched stand, I had the entire collection to choose from. I decided on picking up the Center Stage Jumbo Pencil Collection!

NYX2

Electric Blue, Black Bean, Sparkle Nude, Iced Mocha, Yogurt, Milk

The NYX Center Stage Jumbo Pencil Collection includes six jumbo pencils, with majority of them being neutral colours. I already own Milk myself, but it's such a handy pencil that it definitely doesn't hurt to have a back up.


 

NYX4

Electric Blue, Black Bean, Sparkle Nude, Iced Mocha, Yogurt, Milk

Although Sparkle Nude, Iced Mocha and Yogurt are fairly similar, I don't mind having them in my collection. Using just the three of them, I could probably create a really nice neutral eye makeup look! (This gives me an idea for another post!) I'm also really happy to have Black Bean, as this would be perfection for a smokey eye look!

NYX3

Swatched: Electric Blue, Black Bean, Sparkle Nude, Iced Mocha, Yogurt, Milk

At first swatch, I fell in love with Electric Blue! I thought this would be completely unused by me, but now that I've swatched it, I'll have to incorporate it into a look! I was impressed with the pigmentation of all the colours, particularly the neutral colours!

--

Overall I think the NYX Jumbo Pencils are a must-have in any beauty lovers collection! They are perfect for creating a range of different looks, and Milk makes a perfect base for brighter or pastel colours that don't hold a lot of pigmentation! I find that with a good primer they stay put all day, so they are really great quality for the price!

This boxed collection will set you back $29 at your local Target, which is a complete bargain as the NYX Jumbo Pencil's retail at $9.95 each!

Have you tried the NYX Jumbo Pencils before? If so, what are your thoughts?

    1. Me too! I've read reviews of people saying that they dislike them because they can't find a sharpener big enough for them, but I have a few so I have no idea what they're talking about! Maybe it's an Aussie thing hehe xx

    1. Aw thank you! I was thinking the same thing actually, it'd be nice if they made a more "fun" pack this time with some of the other colours! xx

  8. I got to be one of the first to the NYX stand at my local target too! Most of the testers hadn't been touched! Unfortunately it didn't last long, it's looking pretty gross now :(
    This pack is such great value for money, but considering I already have the blue and black Rimmel eyeshadow pencils it would be wasted on me. I can't wait to try out other colours though!

    1. Aw no that sucks! I feel lucky that nobody seems to be interested in NYX in my area.. so it still looks all pretty!
      Ahh I have the black Rimmel one as well but I couldn't help myself haha xx

  19. I've got this pack but, shame on me, haven't opened it yet (this means I have *far* too much makeup.) I'm a sucker for crayons though, whether they be for eyes or lips. Unfortunately because *every* brand seems to have jumped on the crayon bandwagon! Of the ones I've tried, I think L'Oreal are the best, but the Covergirl 'Flamed Out' ones are just awful - no colour payoff, no staying power. Now it's time for me to dig around and find that Nyx box. <3

  20. I want to see the natural eye look with the pencils :) which I need! Lol

  21. I'm absolutely loving this set but I can easily see how other people might think buying all six would be a bit of a waste of money....
