NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils | Review

Hi Beauty Lovers!

I'm baaaaaaaaack, I arrived back home in the early hours of this morning, I would say its great to be home but I miss the Pina Calada's and the Turkish sun beating down on me.

A while ago NYX jumbo pencils had a quick mention in a NYX haul post, you can recap here. It was love at first sight with these pencils, I had heard and read so many great reviews on these pencils, it seemed silly not to buy a couple.
L-R - Strawberry Milk | Yogurt | Gold
Strawberry milk I bought because I thought it would make the perfect base for Urban Decay's Bordello eyeshadow, and guess what? It really does! Yogurt I bought because...well who wouldn't its gorgeous, the perfect neutral shimmer ideal for every day wear, highlighting and adding innocence to a smokey eye. Gold I bought because its deep earthern shade would make a great base for many of my deep brown eyeshadows, and because it would look amazing worn alone.
The main gripe I have with these pencils are they don't twist up so sharpening them poses a dilemma, I haven't needed to as yet, however I'm sure putting it in the fridge before hand will work just fine. If you've ever sharpened one then please share your method.
I wear mine alone without a primer, as these are retailed to double up as an eyeshadow base, they are yet to crease on me. These giant sticks retail at £5.00, however I snaffled mine for £4.50 at a trade show, lucky me. These are an amazing quality product for such a reasonable price. These come in a varity of shades and finishes, trust me there is a jumbo eye pencil for you!
Have you got any NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil's, I want to expand my collection and stock up at IMATS
