Milani Eyeshadow Pencils VS NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils


Milani Eyeshadow Pencils VS NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils

Hey wise beauties,

Recently you all saw some of my Milani Eye Shadow Pencils which often remind of NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils. How about a comparison between the two?

I know you too are saying ‘Yayyy’ for this. So what’s delay for, let us just start with the comparison. Read On.

  • Product Description

Milani Eyeshadow Pencils:


One pencil, multiple eye-catching ways to use it. A shadow, liner and highlighter in one, it’s water-resistant and crease-proof – two stellar qualities in an eye makeup product! Sharpened to a fine point, it defines. Softly smudged, it adds color – 12 shades in all, from neutrals to brights. Swept under the brow bone in one of the paler hues, it catches the light. Clearly, this pencil is as versatile as it is beautiful.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils:


A radiant eye liner that also doubles as an eye shadow. Made with a blend of mineral oil and powder, our creamy Jumbo Eye Pencils glide on effortlessly—no pulling, tugging or fading—and come in a rainbow of vivid hues. Our most voluptuous pencil yet!

Our Jumbo Eye Pencils can be sharpened with a sharpener that has an opening for a large pencil.

These too come in the form of chubby pencils. These are white colored chubby pencils and come along with a transparent cap. The cap is not very good and can shatter very easily. These too need to be sharpened.

  • Pigmentation

Milani Eyeshadow Pencils: These are very decently pigmented. Just a single swipe gives enough color.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils: These pencils too are insanely pigmented and single swipe gives the desired color.

  • Texture

Milani Eyeshadow Pencils:


The texture of the eye shadow pencils is very creamy and they glide smoothly with ease on the eyes without any tugging. These have a softer texture in comparison to NYX jumbo pencils and smudge less, very minutely.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils:


The texture of these pencils too is towards creamy side; however they are less softer than that of the Milani Eye Shadow Pencils. They smudge more when compared with the Milani Eye Shadow Pencils.

  • Blendability

Milani Eyeshadow Pencils:


These pencils are soft but still they are not very easy to blend. One needs to be very quick in blending; a good blending brush does it beautifully. These are waterproof and this is why they smudge very less and may be this is why blending too needs to be quick.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils:


They are easy to blend, no hassle or hurry is required to blend it, but over blending may fade the shade.

  • Staying Power

Milani Eyeshadow Pencils: These stay intact for long- long durations without smudging or smearing and will only be removed with a good makeup remover since these are waterproof.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils: These have a decent staying power but when compared with Milani Eye Shadow Pencils, these lag behind. These smudge and smear as well, which not a great thing.

Overall, despite of the fact that Milani Eye Shadow Pencils come with a higher price tag, they sure are a winner in terms of quality, packaging and longevity. Though NYX Jumbo Pencils however offer a wide range of 32 shades, I would any day prefer Milani Eye Shadow Pencils.
I only wish that Milani Eye Shadow Pencils offered more shades and was available here in India.

Which among these do you like more?
