NYX Cosmetics’ Jumbo Eye Pencil in Peacock

At some point in 2012 (or possibly 2013…but it can't have been any later than that), NYX added six new shades to its Jumbo Eye Pencil lineup. Peacock isn't the sole blue in the mixThis is a little deeper than Electric Blue - and a little less green. This shade works better on me than Electric Blue does, but it still isn't one that I should be wearing all that often because while I love the color, I don't love the color -=on me=-. It's just a little too intense a blue to complement my eyes well, even though it works fine with my skintone and hair color.
