Yet another gorgeous primary shade, yet another that seems not to be carried by any of the brick-and-mortar stores that stock NYX Cosmetics - nor is it really easy to find on etailer sites any longer. I can't find any solid leads on why Hot Pink, Yellow, Orange, and Cherry are perennially out of stock or discontinued…but I have backups of backups, and I Am Prepared. (Damn you NYX for getting me hooked on something amazing and then taking it away! Damn you thrice!!) Before I started wearing makeup much, I would have thought that bright primary yellow, vivid hot pink, or cherry red were NOT colors that I would voluntarily put on my lids in great quantities, let alone use as a base color. But here I am, all stockpiled on those four shades (along with orange, which also seems to be available only sporadically.) The red looks really good with my coloring, and I haven't experienced any skin-staining. Then again, I don't apply anything to my lids without a primer, or it slides off in a matter of hours.
About the only thing I dislike about these NYX eye pencils is that they're not easy to sharpen. The casing is sometimes wood-like, sometimes plastic, and it resists being sharpened. Hopefully NYX will change their jumbo shadow pencils so that they work more like Tarte's Lipsurgence pencils: twist the bottom, and more product comes out the top. Yes folks would still need to do a little whittling to get a sharp edge on the tip, but there'd be less product wasted. (And if they do this…maybe they'll bring back Cherry? Please? Pretty please?)
