NYX Jumbo Pencil in Rust – Review & Swatches

My take on NYX Jumbo Pencil in Rust:

  • Packaging: This is a typical chubby pencil which needs the larger sharpener. It has a clear plastic lid which extremely fragile and cracks at the drop of a hat!
  • Price:  INR 235 or $3.5

  • Color & Texture:This shade is a deep, shimmery, rusty copper. The shimmer is very fine and minute and the formula is amazing. It isn’t as soft and creamy as Milk or Cottage cheese but holds up much better.
  • Color Payoff:What you see is what you get. The color is exactly as you see from the outside and is very rich in pigmentation.

  • Staying Power: It stays on my lid for the entire day..It does crease a tiny bit during summers but stays put during winters.


I like this shade a lot. It is the best one of them all I feel and does a great job in making you look unique and sophisticated.

I initially thought this would make a liner..but that’s very tough unless you plan on using a brush seperately for this. I like using this in 3 ways..:

  • Alone as a shadow topped off with a black liner
  • Apply this all over the lid, apply MAC Cranberry on top and finish with a liner and mascara
  • Use it to create a sexy coppery smokey eye.

I would recommend this for all eyeshadow lovers..Its a class apart from the usual greens, blues and whites that come in this range and you are bound to love this 🙂


What I like about NYX Jumbo Pencil in Rust:-


  • Sexy, unique shade
  • Can use it in sooo many ways.
  • Doesn’t crease much
  • Dirt cheap as compared to so many other bases
  • Good staying power
  • I like the fact that its in a pencil form …no need to dip in my fingers 🙂


What I did not like about NYX Jumbo Pencil in Rust:

  • Needs to be sharpened which I’m lazy to do with bases…eyeliners are fine…but these too? Phew!


Ratings:  4.5/5

    • That depends taps..if u hav oily lids den yes..plus I guess if d formula is softer it may…coz on my lids cottage cheese shade creases a bit..this doesn’t..

  1. They do crease a bit Taps….epecially if you layer them and this is the reason i avoid taking this shade to my crease….

  2. I have one of these.. in purple.. but i creases so a good choice to be used as a base under e/s …
    rust is a lovely color zara.. good revu :))
