Comparison: Jumbo Eye Pencils

Hey, there!

I love using jumbo eye pencils as a base to my eye look because they help keep eyeshadow in place and can really make the colors look brighter or add dimension. I also like having that extra layer of security against creasing. Also, these can make great eyeliners on the top or bottom lash lines for a surprising bit of color!

Jumbo Eyes intro

Jumbo Eyes swatches

Wet ‘n Wild Idol Eyes Creme Shadow Pencil – 133 Techno

This is a beautiful color, but I mostly just use it as a liner for a nice pop of color. It is very pigmented and lasts quite a while for such a cheap product! I don’t know if I would trust it without a primer underneath over the whole lid, though.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil – 604 Milk, 617 Iced Mocha

Milk is a wonderful base that makes colored eyeshadows pop. I haven’t had any problems with creasing or fading with a primer underneath, either, so needless to say I’m totally in love with this product! I just purchased Iced Mocha a couple of days ago, but I’ve already worn it once and I’m certainly not disappointed. It’s a great one-eyeshadow look because of the dimension of the tone and shimmer.

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Eye Shadow Stick – 02 Bulletproof Beige

This is a beautiful gold-champagne that goes really well with neutrals as well as bright colors in the crease. The package says it’s 24 hr/waterproof wear, so while I haven’t tested that, I can say that it does last all day and looks great. My only complaint is that it broke right when I opened it, but once I sharpened it, it was as good as new!

Milani Shadow Eyez 12 Hour Wear Eyeshadow – 03 Champagne Toast

I really love this pink-champagne underneath neutral shades, especially from my Naked palette. It’s a similar color to Sin, so it goes well with many of the colors in the palette. I haven’t tested if it really wears for 12 hours, but it does last a long time once it sets.

Sephora Rayon Jumbo 12 Hour Wear Liner Waterproof – 09 Kaki

This shade is a little too glittery for the whole lid, but it’s a beautiful liner on the top and bottom lash lines! It looks great with my brown eyes. I can’t wait to use this in the fall! I, again, haven’t tested if it’s truly waterproof, but once it’s set it won’t smudge. It’s a little pricey so I suggest trying it out in a color you’ll wear a lot before springing for brighter colors.

As always, thanks for reading! Let me know in the comments if there’s something you’d like to see on an upcoming Sunday Spotlight!
