NYX Cosmetics’ Jumbo Eye Pencil in Pacific

I was drawn to this because of the shade. I admit, I'm a sucker for anything periwinkle. (I'm going through my blue phase. I've been going through it for the last...oh, few decades.) I wish that this were slightly deeper-toned, less of a "borderline pastel", but it is a pretty shade. I get better effects when using this as an inner-lid accent color than an all-over shade. It isn't a metallic, but there's a slight shimmer finish. Application is very smooth and even (some of these pencils tend to skip just a little bit - mostly the true metallics.)
