You know when you've been trawling and testing various products over the years and then finally find *the one* and vow to never go back? Well, we have a new one to add to that list.

Enter NYX Professional Makeup Jumbo Eye Pencil which has earned itself over 23,000 five star reviews from people all over the world.

Available on Amazon, the eye pencil has become one of the newest cult purchases in beauty with thousands saying "this is the best eyeliner ever" and some simply putting, "Buy buy buy!"

And the even better bit? It's $7.46. Yes, the collection of coins at the bottom of your bag.

Ok, give me the rundown.

The NYX eyeliner is gaining global attention for its ability to perform in every area an eyeliner should, and more.

As described in its title, the eyeliner is thicker than standard liners which is designed for easier application as well as doubling up as an eyeshadow - so you really do get more than the standard benefits.


It boasts a creamy and blendable formula with a strong pigment, making it the perfect one-stop-shop product for a wide range of looks, from a winged eye *triggering* to a smokier, smudged-kohl look.

The generous sizing of the pencil allows it to "glide on effortlessly" with "no pulling, tugging or fading", and many agree.

"This pencil is so easy to use," one customer wrote on Amazon. "It glides easily across the eyelid or use with the correct brush to perfect your cut crease. This pencil will make all of your eye shadow colours vibrant."

"This product works perfectly," another has written. "It goes on smoothly and lasts all day. This is the best eyeliner I've bought for years."

Works for everyone

The eyeliner is suitable for all skin tones being available in seven versatile shades, with its signature Black Bean pencil being the most popular.

Choose from Cottage Cheese (dove grey), French Fries (bronze shimmer), Iced Mocha (coffee shimmer), Milk (white), Pure Gold (gold shimmer) and Yoghurt (pale shimmer pink) with each tone boasting a strong, long-lasting pigment - perfect for the summer heat coming up. No one likes streaks.

"I apply it on my waterline and it stays there as it is smudge-proof and very pigmented," a customer attests.

"I used to love Shu Uemura double white eye shadow stick. Found this NYX. Much cheaper. Work exactly the same! Love this product!" a second adds.

Adding to my kit

Considering its multi-use formula and strong performance in wear, pigment and application, the eyeliner has found its spot in many people's makeup bags recently and only continues to go viral.

Along with its long list of benefits and five star reviews, NYX's eyeliner is also cruelty-free, so you can rest assured applying your makeup knowing that you haven't harmed anyone in the process.

Did we mention that it's only $7.46? Maybe we did, we just need to say it again because we still can't believe it.

You can pick up the pencil from Amazon with free shipping over $39, which won't be hard - especially if you want to secure your eye makeup for the next few years.

"Everyone knows this product is amazing," a makeup enthusiast writes. "Stock up before it’s out of stock again. I stocked up to last me for three years!!"

If that wasn't enough to sway you, we'll leave you with the wise words of a happy customer: "Get one and you will not regret it."
