NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cottage Cheese – Review

I bought NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Cottage Cheese a few days ago from emart in Jukjeon (read here) and I have been using it ever since. Until that day I did not know if NYX products were available in Seoul but now I am quite happy and plan to buy a few of their single eyeshadows that a lot of people on YouTube rave about! But first let’s review the NYX Jumbo eye pencil!

Product: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cottage Cheese (JEP 608)

Quantity: 5 g (0.18 fl. oz.)

Cost: 12000 KRW

Available: At Select Olive Young stores and emart outlets.

NYX products available in the emart outlet are very limited. I think there were 20 single eyeshadows, a couple of palettes, 15-20 lipsticks and 5 jumbo eye pencils to choose from and the rate seemed high compared to my expectations. The jumbo pencil was 12000 KRW which I think is a bit much since I can get one from Etude House for less than half the price.

SO anyway. I swatched all of the shades and settled for Cottage Cheese, the pearly white shade simply because I thought I would get a good use out of it.

I plan to use it as a base shade for my eye looks, eyeliner to brighten lower lashline or for inner corner of the eyes, or as highlight on my browbone and also as a stand-alone (watrproof) eye color.

I love how many ways I can use this shade and how handy it is. It contains Ceresin Wax, Candelilla Wax and Beeswax so it is waterproof too!

Rating: 4/5

Recommend: Yes

Repurchase: Yes

I would definitely pick up the other shades available in NYX Jumbo eye pencils in emart. These are multi-purpose, waterproof, nicely pigmented and good quality. What are your thoughts about the NYX Jumbo eye pencils?
