While applying for tickets for IMATS for the second year running, I decided to bring out my favourite purchase from last year; NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in 'Sparkle Nude'.
I'm not one to wear much eye makeup, and when I do, I like something quick and easy to apply, which is why this appealed to me so much.

The NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils are an eyeshadow and eyeliner in one and come in over thirty different shades. I chose 'Sparkle Nude', which is kind of self explanatory; a light golden metallic shade with small glitter particles. I find this is a dream to wear with lots of the eyeshadows in my Naked Palettes and my all-time favourite eyeshadow, Mac 'All That Glitters'. It's subtle enough to wear during the day and built up with different eyeshadows it works really well for a sparkly night time look too.

For a simple daytime look, I line my eyes with a smudgy application of this. It glides across the eyelids and my waterline with ease, there's no pulling or pressing necessary to get the full colour payoff from this pencil. I find that this gives a really pretty yet simple addition to my makeup, and it literally takes a few extra seconds on a morning - great for those like me who would rather spend an extra five minutes in bed than wear cat eyes each day!

If I go, I think I'll be picking up a few more shades at IMATS this year.
