What it claims to do:
According to the NYX Cosmetics website this product is 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. Some call her chubby. We say voluptuous. Available in 28 shades.
What it actually does:
This is a pretty good product in general but the coolest thing, in my opinion, about these eye pencils is the range of shades. You've got everything from your basic black (Black Bean) to neon green (Cucumber) and everything in between. Some are on the matte side while others are full of shimmer and glitter. The colors are super fun and will leave you wanting to collect them all.
I mainly use Black Bean when creating dark dramatic looks as an eye shadow base. I actually rarely use it as a liner. As I previously mentioned this is a great way to create smokey eyes since it makes it pretty simply to define your Outer V area. If I am going for something super dark I'll put a little of this product over my entire lid the blend out and layer with my dark shadows.

Which bring me to my next point. Because these products are super creamy they must be set with shadows. If you wear these alone they are going to smudge and even worse they will crease. The creasing is the only aspect about this product that I dislike. I have even found that if I wear these for an extended period with eye shadows on top they will still crease on me. To solve this problem I have to use my Urban Decay Primer Potion under the NYX Jumbo Pencils to decrease the crease! Also be aware that this product is not the longest lasting in the waterline so you will need to set that area with shadows as well and you may also have to retouch during the day.
