A Little Horse Raddish, Anyone?
NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencils. Do you use them? I don't have many, but I do own a few. Three, to be exact. I own the ubiquitous Milk, Rust and this one, which I bought to help boost the color quotient of a tepid eyeshadow I was looking to rock. And it did just that. So, let's shoot the breeze for a moment and gab a tad about NYX's Jumbo Pencil in Horse Raddish.
Horse Raddish is a pearly, seafoam green. It is a highly emollient, creamy pencil that can be used as an eyeliner and/or eyeshadow base. When recruiting it for the latter, it is best to use a good primer underneath and blend well to prevent creasing. Employing these practices when using this and other creamy bases has afforded me the luxury of crease-free lids for eight hours plus.
Because of its creamy texture, it moves very smoothly across the skin, depositing a liberal amount of color during application. Again, underneath a proper primer and working in cahoots with a powder eyeshadow, I had no problems with the color fading or migrating at all. And it's such a unique color to find as a base that I probably would have bought this regardless, wonky eyeshadow or not.
I've seen where people have been downright obsessed with these Jumbo Pencils and bought every color they ever made - the whole collection! I'm not quite as devoted, however, I do find them handy. And the spectrum of hues they cover can't be denied. So, if you've never tried them, you may want to give them a once over. They won't hurt your pocketbook and can certainly give your look a dose of intensity in the process.
NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Horse Raddish is available at Ulta and various beauty supply stores, and retails for $4.50.
