NYX Cosmetics’ Jumbo Eye Pencil in Yellow

Another vibrant primary creme pencil color, another one that's not carried in most drugstores and channel partners, and another one that's perennially out of stock on just about every web site I've checked. (I hit Ebay and stocked up on this, Cherry, Hot Pink, Orange, and Electric Blue.) This is definitely a bright yellow, not a brightening yellow like MAC's Soft Ochre. This shade takes no prisoners, absolutely none. I have some yellow eyeshadows, but most of them won't turn out this primary-bright color without being a) applied heavily; and b) applied damp. So it's kind of nice to have this added to my inventory!
