❤ NYX Jumbo Pencil VS LA Colors Jumbo Pencil

NYX Jumbo Pencil vs LA Colors Jumbo Pencil. So I have been using the NYX Jumbo Pencils for a very long time. I remember them being like $2. That long ago! Now they're retailed for I believe $4.99. Ugh right? I still buy them because they are still a cheap alternative to primers. They come in a variety of colors. I probably have like 7 of them, but I think there is probably 30 different ones now. I haven't checked that out, but I know they have new colors. Anywho, I was shopping one day and came across the LA Color Jumbo Pencils. I actually found them at a flee market in my city. This lady sells NYX single eyeshadows and some other products by NYX too. When I saw the LA Colors Jumbo Pencils, I thought they were the NYX Jumbo Lip pencils since those come in black packaging. She was selling them for a buck, so why not try these out. I picked up 5 colors and I wanted to test out the white color, Sea Shells, against the NYX JP in Milk. So in my video there is a tutorial on the look I did using a pencil on each eye. I heard from a few people that the LA Colors JPs weren't very good cause they crease a lot. After my 13 hour experiment I've come to the conclusion that the LA Color Jumbo Pencil worked just the same on me as the NYX Jumbo Pencil did. I have kinda oily skin so I was thinking it would crease a lot on me, but surprisingly it did not. So I'm a happy camper. I hope this video and blog were informative and if you try out the LA Colors JP, let me know what you think. Thanks!
