A delicious mocha colour. It has small gold flecks in it. It can be applied with varying levels of pigmentation, depending on how heavy your hand is. It is silky smooth and easy to work with! Great product!
I bought six NYX Jumbo eye pencils from Cherry Culture thinking they would be good bases that could substitute for primers, but boy was I wrong! You need to use a very good primer with these or else they crease like crazy!! Well at least on me they do since I have oily eyelids. The price was very reasonable for these $3.50, way better than the MAC shadesticks which are $20. I'm thinking of depotting them into small pots after watching the Youtube videos. I hope the microwave won't cook them so much that the formulation gets screwed up. The color of this stick is a really nice brown/bronze color. Very useful for a neutral look. I'm undecided on whether I would get this again or get more of these jumbo eye pencils....
Edit: I tried 3 different primers (TFSI, UDPP, and MAC PPs) to see which one would make this stick on without creasing. And I finally found that MAC Paint Pots (in Painterly) is the best primer to use under this! What a journey! I went to work and the mall with ugly greasy eye lids so many times before I could make this work! I took a lippy off because I'm frustrated with the whole experience. It's a difficult product to work with and it shouldn't be getting all these rave reviews. These jumbo eye pencils only deserve an overall 4/5 in my opinion.
So pweety! I bought it because emilynoel83 was using this in a tutorial that i wanted to duplicate. It's very creamy and pigmented, one storke of this is enough to cover my whole lid. I love the tackiness of this pencil because powder shadows clings to it very well. I usally use a flat stiff brush (the body shop eyeshadow brush) or a fluffy dome brush for a sheer wash of colour (MAC 217) , that way i can blend it easier. I find that when applying this pencil directly to my lids i get a thick layer, which makes it harder to blend and easier to crease. I love pairing this pencil with my Maybelline quad in chai latte, very neutral yet very sexy!
This color is GORGEOUS! I fell in love the instant I applied it. The texture is really blendable, and it doesn't take more than a swipe to get a great deposit of color. Really pretty for brown eyes, I can only imagine how pretty it would be for blue or green eyes. :)
this is such a pretty color and a wonderful base. its a medium brown with a little shine look to it but it looks pretty. i recommend putting this on your lid for a base and put revlon beyond natural cream to powder eye shadow in peach. its GEORGEOUS!!!!! hahaha
Urban Decay's Underground Deluxe Eyeshadow is the only color I've ever hit pan on, and for me, this is just like Underground in pencil form, a gorgeous brown taupe. Easy to apply, I just color in my lid and smudge it out with a finger, and it makes a great base for a taupe eye. Unfortunately, you need to apply a primer and take care not to apply too much of this product; otherwise, it will crease.
It's the fourth jumbo eye pencil I've tried so far. (I own pencils in iced mocha, black bean, strawberry milk and milk) This is thick and a little hard to blend. The problem I see with this specific shade is that I can't really build up the color. If I apply more, I build up the frost but not the shade itself. When I blend with my finger, the color fades a little more than my other pencils do. And it does smear a little bit too. Just don't spread it too wide on your lid. This shade looks okay under brown shadows mostly. I'm not sure I'd repurchase because the color is light and frosty rather than pigmented. Nice base under shimmery shadows, though. Always use a base or else it will crease badly.
I like to used Iced Mocha on top of UDPP and under any of my gold eyeshadows. The color comes out a light brown to gold shimmer on my NC44 skin tone so if this is the colore you want get it. It really helps make them pop and helps the eyeshadow to stick to my lids. This isnt my favorite color of the pencils but it's good for making gold eyeshadows stand out and shimmer a bit more. It doesn't crease if you use a good primer and the staying power of it is pretty good. Won't repurchase because I know I can find a better base for my gold eyeshadows.
Out of all the brown jumbo eye pencils this is the only one thats more a cool tone base. Great base under nyx eyeshadow in walnut. Beautiful shimmer but not too much
Maybe its because I live in a particularly warm humid area but I don't think this product has that great of a staying power. The color is nice and it glides on very easily. It shows up very shimmery and this color in particular does work great as a cheap base. But the BIGGEST CON is that it has no sharpener!! Its huge and doesn't fit into standard sharpeners. For that one very good reason I would not purchase this product again.
