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!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
