Makeup Wars- Favorite Cream or Pencil Shadow


This Makeup Wars is about our favorite eye shadow that is NOT a powder. Since I am currently in Brooklyn for work I do not have my whole collection with me since I wanted room to buy MORE! My favorite non powder eye shadows at the moment would have to be NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils! They come in a variety of neutral and vibrant colors, they are easy to use, and they are very affordable. My latest favorites are the three pictured below. I purchased each for $3.99.


The colors from left to right are Strawberry Milk, Purple, and Electric Blue.

Strawberry Milk is a light pink color. I love using this on the  inside corner of my eyes or even on my whole eyelid for lazy makeup days.

Purple is a very pretty color that almost looks blue. I actually thought it was blue when I first got it. I use this as a base or as a color liner above my lash line.

Electric Blue is so pretty with brown eye shadow. I use this one as a liner above my lash liner and below sometimes.


I love these pencil eye shadows because they are so easy and convenient. I have used them without or with a primer and they work good either way (obviously better with the primer). They don’t take up much room so they are great for traveling! The color payoff is great and I love the shiny finish.


What is your favorite eye shadow pencil?!
