Not quite hot pink…but extremely close. It’s not quite neon-ish enough.

NYX Cosmetics’ Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cashmere

NYX Cosmetics’ Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cashmere

Posted on Saturday, at

One of six “new” shades introduced in…when was this…2013, I think? I’ve had it for a while, but haven’t used it too much. The pencil has a very faint red interference layer, but the color coverage is almost nonexistent. This is a far better “effects” pencil than a regular, standalone color.

I half-expected the gold shimmer to be a little more prominent in this color. Still, it’s substantial enough to be easily visible without overwhelming the blue base shade. There’s more visible gold than in most shimmer finishes - it’s almost like a faint gold frost.

I missed this collection the first time it came around, because I wasn’t buying much Aromaleigh at that time. The second time it came around - February 2016 - I picked up the sample set. Now, the collection and colors have been discontinued as Aromaleigh pares down their line to simplfy things, so if you want any of these colors, they’re on clearance.

The pearl finish softens the base color a bit, but not so much that it’s “just another white.” This is a lovely near-neutral! It does appear to have some pink at certain angles, so I’m not sure how well this would work on the warmest skintones, or on people with olive in their coloring.
