NYX Wonder Pencil

As a woman there’s nothing I’d like more than to be a wonder woman. I want to be able to get through my day without breaking a sweat. I want to be able to multi-task like a boss, to kick ass and take names. So when I read about the NYX Wonder Pencil and how it does THREE fabulous jobs in one pencil I had to get my hands on it!! *cue Wonder Woman theme song* Here’s the spiel from the NYX website;

Wonder Woman, meet the Wonder Pencil…the essential pencil that fulfils all of your beauty desires. Conquer 3 critical make-up tasks with one product: CONCEAL flaws and blemishes with creamy precision; LINE your lips against lipstick bleeding and fading; and BRIGHTEN your eyes along the water line. Will wonders never cease? Not with the Wonder Pencil in your bag!

I bought this bad boy from Target’s NYX line for $8.95, which isn’t that bad I guess, but when I had a look online for the US price it looks to be half that amount! Oh, the struggle is real!!

Anywho, I really do love this pencil but I must say that for me it doesn’t cover the three “tasks” its been assigned. My favourite way to use the Wonder Pencil is as an eye brightener. This is a much better alternative to a white pencil most gals use to brighten there waterlines. I find it blends a lot better than a white liner and has a much more natural finished look. I also love it as a lip liner to combat bleeding of my red lipsticks. Another great way to wear it is as a nude lip; I line my lips and then pop on an ultra shiny gloss on top.

Where it fails for me is as a concealer. The pencil is creamy but it isn’t pliable enough to blend in. I found that when I did try to cover spots it just looked caked on. To quote Meatloaf, two out of three ain’t bad, right?

Have you tried the Wonder Pencil? Do you think it’s wonderful?

  1. Ah, I cannot believe how much more things are in Oz!!! I like using a nude on my lower waterline as well. I agree with you and Meatloaf! Two outta three ain’t bad!
