Highlighter in a pencil ~ NYX Jumbo pencil in Yogurt,Review and Swatch

Movie stars, models and socialites sashaying down the red carpet have one thing in common. Perfectly highlighted skin. When I was a makeup novice not many moons ago I would wonder how these celebrities had such perfectly glowing skin. Then I discovered highlighters. Tadaa!! Mystery solved.

NYX Jumbo Pencil in Yogurt

I bought NYX jumbo pencil mostly because they were so raved about in many beauty blogs and I loved the idea of creamy eye shadow in a pencil format. Jumbo pencil in Yogurt is a creamy shimmery beige color. I love love love it for highlighting my brow bones. It is my go to highlighting color on most days.

Swatch of NYX jumbo pencil on NC 44 skin

Price? $3
How to ? I use this mutitasker as a highlight for my brow bones and the inner corner of my eyes. I also use this to highlight my cheek bones when I don’t have the time to play with a liquid highlighter. I have also tried this as an eyeshadow. But this needs a primer underneath.
The good :-
·         I love the color. Perfect for highlighting.
·         Consistency is lovely. Creamy but not too emollient . Just right.
·         I love the pencil packaging. Makes it easy for me to jus dot the product where I want it and then quickly blend with my fingers.
·         The shimmer particles are perfect in size. This makes the product shimmery and not glittery.
·         I love how economically priced this is.
The not so good:-
·         This doesn’t last on my skin for more than 3 hours.
I love this Jumbo eyepencil. I love this mainly as a highlighter rather than a lid color. Very little quantity is required each time so I doubt if I will ever run out. If I do I will definitely re purchase.
Makeup-mantra rating:- 8/10
