Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil – Rocky Mountain Green

Today I’m swatching the Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Rocky Mountain Green. Here’s how the Jumbo Eye Pencil is described on the Nyx website:

A radiant eye liner that also doubles as an eye shadow. Made with a blend of mineral oil and powder our creamy Jumbo Eye Pencils glide on effortlessly—no pulling tugging or fading—and come in a rainbow of vivid hues. Our most voluptuous pencil yet!

I had high hopes for this eye pencil since it can be used as either a liner or as a shadow. Rocky Mountain Green is described as being a true green. In the packaging, it looks like a bright emerald green with a bit of a metallic finish.

Here it is swatched directly onto the skin, no primer.

I was expecting a more rich, jewel-toned, slightly metallic, emerald colour. The colour isn’t bad, it just isn’t as intense, or pigmented as I was hoping for. But all is not lost! I can use it as a primer of sorts for my ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in Empire. They work amazingly well together!

I will probably pick up a few more to try out since it worked so well to keep my shadow locked into place.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

Disclosure: I purchased this!

      1. I almost always expect more lol But it is a better color than the green I recently purchase. I think it was a Wet n’ Wild so I don’t know why I was shocked when I wasn’t thrilled lol
