My take on NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cobalt:

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil comes in various pretty shades. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cobalt is described as a dark blue with silver glitter. I will describe it as a glittery sapphire blue. As you all are aware, the eye pencil is a very versatile product. It serves as an eyeshadow base, an eye shadow, a liner. I generally wear it as an overall color or as a smudged wash of color on my lower lash line. I really don’t like the crisp eyeliner look and this baby blends too much if I try to smoke it out after using it as a liner. This is perfect for days when you do not have time, but do want to have an interesting color on the eyes. Just pat this pencil on the lid and try not to blend much, as it goes ‘gayab’ with too much blending. πŸ˜‰

Texture: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cobalt is an eye pencil with a very smooth texture. It glides on the eyes, without tugging on the lids. Does not feel heavy or dry on the lids. The eye pencil has a glittery finish. But, the glitter is not chunky and will not be visible if applied under an eye shadow.

Pigmentation: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cobalt is beautifully pigmented. You generally won’t need more than two swipes for an eye. But if you prefer a blended look, you will have to reapply this more than couple of times. πŸ˜‰

Staying Power: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cobalt stays on my oily lids for couple of hours. However, it plays fantastically if applied over a primer and set with an eye shadow. It also has the tendency to crease, if not set with a powder shadow.

Packaging: The eye pencil has a white outer body and a clear cap, which helps in picking up the shade easily.
