NYX Eye Pencil Blue Review – Hi girls! Its time to share NYX Eye Pencil Blue Review. Apart from lipstick, if there is something I am greedy for, it has to be eye liner or eye pencils. They are my makeup staple and I love trying out various shades. This NYX Eye Pencil Blue, as the name suggests is a blue eye pencil. Blue is my all time favorite. The shade name is ‘Lagon’. I had received it in one of my fab bags. I haven’t used many NYX products so far. Apart from this one, I have used a lipstick from NYX, you can check the review here.

What NYX Eye Pencil Blue claims
My experience with NYX Eye Pencil Blue
NYX Eye Pencil Blue is made out of wood. It is a simple black colored pencil with a black lid and a color band at the bottom. The color reflects the exact shade, hence it becomes easier to choose the one you want to. The lid is a tight fitting one, hence this eye pencil can be carried easily in the purse. The pencil needs to be sharpened, which leads to product wastage.
The shade is light blue and has shimmer in it. It is a fragrance free product. NYX Eye Pencil Blue has creamy texture which glides smoothly. It feels very smooth on the skin, no tugging or pulling at all. It gives a slight shimmery finish, which doesn’t look over-the-top. But pigmentation wise, its not so good.
NYX Eye Pencil Blue has poor staying power. It sits on my eyelids just for 2-3 hours. Though the packaging says eye/eyebrow pencil, but this is definitely not an eyebrow pencil. I don’t think anyone would like to color their eyebrows in blue 😉 This is a lovely shade to be applied on upper lash line. One can also use it as eye shadow. The eye pencil is not smudge proof, neither water proof. Also the tip is very soft which tends to break while sharpening the pencil and it leads to a lot of product wastage.
Overall, NYX Eye Pencil Blue is a light shimmery blue shade which looks good on upper lash line. However low pigmentation and poor staying power doesn’t make it an absolute favorite. Since the price is pretty reasonable, I would suggest you to try out few shades from their wide variety.
