REVIEW: NYX Eye/Eyebrow Pencil In Black (Shade 901)

Review Of NYX Eye/Eyebrow Pencil In Black

Guest Post By: Shabby

Most of you must be familiar with the brand NYX but for those who are not, ‘Nyx’ is an American drugstore makeup brands who have an awesome range of products at reasonable price. With the online shopping sites offering Nyx it has become quite easily available. I ordered this pencil seeing it was on offer from an online shopping site.

The pencil is not a self sharpening one and has the Name of the shade and Brand inscribe on its body. I am reviewing the shade Black.

The pencil is fairly smooth and glides on eyes smoothly. It is very easy to smudge and create a Smokey eye look with this pencil. For this reason I use it mainly for my Smokey eye makeup as a base. It can be easily blended and holds eye shadow well. I have used it on the waterline too and sadly it bleeds. I have tried many tricks but still the bleeding does not stop. Though I must confess the black is a rich pigmented true glossy black. If you want an affordable eye pencil to use as a base of your eye makeup then this works well.

Price of NYX Eye/Eyebrow Pencil in Black:

They cost INR 150/-


1. Rich pigmented black
2. The shade is glossy and not matte
3. Does not irritate eyes when used on water line
4. Quite affordable
5. Blends well for a smooth base for eye makeup

1. Bleeds when used on lower lash line
2. Product is wasted while sharpening
3. Very soft pencil , tips break off quite often
4. Looks unnatural if used as brow pencil (Yes I tried it just for the sake of this review :P )

Overall Rating:


  1. am presently using one from rimmel ! love your eyes <3

  2. How beautiful you look and can;t help noticing how smooth your skin is!

    1. Thanks Dear :) Really appreciate your comments :)

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

10 Best Loose Powders Available in India

10 Best Loose Powders Available in IndiaISLM Writer: Sanchita

Summer is going to knock on the door soon and we, who are blessed (or cursed) with oily skin, will crawl back to our powders and/or matte foundations to keep the skin oil-free as far as possible. Being oily skinned, I have always found my way back to loose powders even though their packaging is slightly messy. This is because loose or translucent powders are more finely milled than the compact versions and hence gives you an even look rather than a made-up cakey one. Compact has the tendency to look rough under eyes or around the mouth whereas loose powders work excellently. No wonder, oily skin stays matte for longer duration than it does with the compact ones. Mostly, it gives sheer to buildable coverage and sits on the skin like a natural finish look.
