Since NYX's Glitter Mania Jumbo pencils weren't quite what I was expecting, I went over to my local Essentials shop and picked up some of NYX's Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencils. I'd never even been in this store before, nor did I know that they sold NYX products, until the last time I went to the mall with Eden, Ain, & Erin!
From left to right: Cottage Cheese (Who the heck named this one?! I'm gonna put some cottage cheese on my face FML), Strawberry Milk, Lavender, Purple, Pacific, and Baby Blue.
I am in love with these pencils!!
These are exactly what I wanted! They're so creamy, and the colors are so concentrated. They're really easy to blend too! Here's what I did with them today: (my first attempt at taking makeup photos, it's much harder than I thought )
After applying lashes and a quick attempt at curling hair (my boss called me and told me to come into work early just as I was in the middle of curling ):

I rarely use much color in my makeup looks, so this was pretty different for me! What do you think?
And I know - I have so many wonderful NYX lashes now, so why am I using Ardell?! I can't help it, I love my Ardell lashes so much! They're easy enough to put on and comfortable enough to wear on a daily basis. The 124's are really natural looking too, so they're perfect for everyday wear!
I can't wait to try out some fun color combinations with these pencils~
