NYX Eye/eyebrow pencil Gray Review & Swatches


NYX Eye/Eyebrow Pencil 919 Gray

I entered into the eye makeup world with color eye pencil and that’s the reason they are my first love when it comes to eye makeup.Till date I still prefer eye pencils over eye shadow. :-P. I know it is a little strange for few of you but It’s easy for a mom to just line her eyes rather than blending out different shades of eyeshadows.

The shade is a deep gray with silvery sparkling shimmers and it’s a beautiful unique colour which I absolutely love

The texture is creamy and does not hurt the eyes on application. For me, after every use, I need to sharpen the pencil so that it is ready for the next use. Somehow the tip of the pencil gets dissolved by itself one time after eye makeup and I hate sharpening. I wish it was twist up pencil but  its also true that creamy twist up pencils tends to break usually. So, back to square one!!!! A creamy eye pencil is bound be in a sharp enable wooden pencil frame.

A single swipe is more or less transparent and looks almost like a pigmented skin. Subsequent swiping will build up the gray color giving the look to the eye makeup. It does not crease when spread around the eye lid. and this is the reason I prefer wearing it like an eye shadow on the eyelid.

Staying power is pretty good. It stays on as long as it is not messed up with our own hands. But, removing the eyeliner is a problem. The shimmers stick to the skin and make the eyes look as though there is some allergy on the skin around the eyes. So, you got to take little pain in wiping off the eye pencil shade.

I still have doubt in the name of the pencil. Who would want to wear a silver sparkling gray eye pencil on their eye brow? As long as you are not getting ready for Halloween 😀
