I think that NYX jumbo eye pencils are some of the best eye bases out there. While I think they perform dismally as regular eyeshadow, under powder eyeshadow they really help things look amazing. French Fries is a shimmery mid-tone golden brown that probably would suit everyone. I use this as a base for pretty much all my neutral looks. The formula is the same as any other NYX jumbo eye pencil. It is very smooth, creamy, and extremely emollient. These are definitely not known for their lasting power and I find that if I just wear it by itself it does crease and I never have problems with creasing or fading, usually. Only if I use the tiniest amount does it not crease. But if I use it as a base under powder eyeshadow, I have no problems with creasing and my eyeshadow is transformed. Above any primer, cream shadow, eyeliner, or anything else I may use as a base this is definitely my favorite. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone with oily lids, but to anyone else, it's a great base.

A beautiful mocha bronze brown - glides on smoothly and stays all day. These NYX jumbo eye pencils are so affordable and come in so many great colours. I only use these as eyeliners as find even with a primer they still crease if used as an eye shadow.

I love to use French Fries to line my upper lashes with a neutral eye look and would very likely repurchase this one when it finally runs out.

I think NYX's eye pencils are kinda overrated, but I was really impressed with French Fries. I often wear browns, mocha's and light browns for my blue-green eyes, and having a pencil you can sweep on without a brush is so convenient. It's a really nice shade and I don't have problems with creasing. Along with French Fries, I have Cashmere, Sparkle Nude, Sparkle Leapord, Milk, Strawberry Milk, and Yogurt, none of which I like as much as French fries. I think it'd be worth getting again

I absolutely love this pencil!!! I don't even bother with eye primer and it makes my smokey bronze eye look pop especially when paired with my Urban Decay Naked palette. I will definitely repurchase this beauty.

This jumbo pencil is the perfect base for a golden/bronze smokey eye look. It just makes the colors so much more vibrant. I apply UDPP first to help prevent creasing, and it works pretty well. I really adore this color and always reach for it for any type of golden eyeshadow look. Would definitely recommend.

A beautiful light brown with shine, brings out the best in any shadow. Great alone, under a shadow, or mixed with a shadow. Last all day, even after working out, I never need to fix it, does not crease on me and complements my skin and my eyes.

I really wanted to like this product, after seeing all the positive reviews on here. I picked it up at my local drugstore for $6.99 (I know that's expensive for NYX, everything is more expensive in Canada). When I first put it on, I was blown away by the colour- it was such a gorgeous shade of brown. But it smudged on me big time. After about 30 minutes I already looked like a train wreck- almost all the colour had transferred to my undereye area (I had used it to line my lids). I'm sure that even with primer, it would still smudge like crazy. I am so disappointed because I am in love with the colour AND it was rather expensive for NYX.

ALSO, I have to add that the packaging is a mess. The product smudged all over the packaging after the 2nd time I took the lid off. It didn't look very attractive and was just very messy. As well, it comes in the plastic tube = cannot be sharpened, so you have to depot it.

I know that a lot of people love this product, but it just doesn't work for my oily skin. Such a shame.
