I am going to talk about an eyeliner from NYX today that is NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Eyeliner 601 Black Review. This is my first eye product from NYX, earlier I had a lipstick in dusty pink. I was pretty satisfied with the product quality so, decided to pick up another product from them. I was quite excited when I picked it up, almost a week back. I have used it 5 or 6 times and I felt , I am ready to review it for you girls. This is a basic Black, matte eye pencil that defines your eyes beautifully and is good for those who are beginners in smokey eye makeup.
I was quite bored of regular liquid eye liners that I have been using for quite some time and also, I do not have a very steady hand with brush applicators. When this product caught my eye online I thought pen grip would be nice for my unsteady hand. NYX products are not very commonly available on stores so, you need to order them either online or go to some mall. Luckily, beautykafe stocks NYX. Without further talks, Let us move on to the review to know more about this one and see how it faired for me.-P. S I feel lucky that I picked it..

My experience with NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Eyeliner 601 Black
Let us talk about the packaging, first of all. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Eyeliner 601 Black comes in a white pen packaging made out of plastic with a transparent cap that closes well but still I would say that you should carry it in a pouch, just in case cap opens, it might spoil your bag. It is in a twist up format. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Eyeliner 601 Black is a light weight, travel friendly product and you can double it up as a kajal too. The thick pen allows a firm grip.
The texture of NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Eyeliner 601 Black is great. It feels like a matte paint made into a pen form. Eye pencil swipes on smoothly on my eyes without streaking but still I would advise that you apply a little primer on your eyes before applying it for an even and smooth finish. It has an amazing colour pay off and excellent pigmentation. You can have look at the swatches, It is just a single swipe in both the pics. It sets with a jet black, matte finish. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Eyeliner 601 Black is pretty much smudge-proof, unless rubbed into vigorously. I am not sure about it being water proof as I did not dare testing it as I might have ended up with Racoon eyes :p But yes, I have read reviews that say the product is water proof.
The lasting power of NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Eyeliner 601 Black is nice of around 4 hours or so. However, if you have oily lids you might need a touchup. I do not feel any need what so ever for any touch up with this one in my working hours.
I have not experienced itchy or watery eyes with this and I feel NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Eyeliner 601 Black is important to mention as many of us wear contact lenses. I once used MAC liner and God! I had to discard it since it irritated my eyes bad. It is easy to remove with regular makeup removers but coconut oil works the best for me.
