NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils: (top to bottom) Purple Velvet, French Fries, Rust, Black Bean
Today I'm going to describe a couple of new additions to my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils. For a full review of the Jumbo Eye Pencils click here

The new shades include:
1. Purple Velvet is a gorgeous violet purple. Quite dark and with a beautiful sheen.
2. French Fries is mid-toned brown with sheen. It's leans neither towards oranges or golds nor reds nor grays.  
3. Rust is the shade I was unsure about but felt somehow drawn to. It turned out to be such a beautiful shade. Depending on lighing and angle it may look burgundy red or red-toned brown with sheen. Looks surprisingly good on my lids and combines well with a number of eyeshadows on top of it. This is definitely a very unique shade.
4. Black Bean is an opaque matte black, which looks satiny cause it's actually quite greasy. I like to pair it with gold eyeshadow on top.

Disclaimer: I bought the product myself for my personal use and I am not affiliated with any company. I am not paid to do this review and everything I said here is my genuine opinion.


  1. I have Purple Velvet and Black Bean, I love some of these, Milk is particularly good too x

    1. Exactly, pretty colours, good quality and cheap. What else could I wish for?

  2. did you buy them from the NYX store or online?

    1. No, I got these from Douglas online, which is a German equivalent of Sephora operating among others in Poland. However, my next NYX orders are going to be from ebay cause it seems cheaper and gives unlimited variety of shades and products
