NYX Wonder Pencil Light - Swatch and Review



The NYX Wonder Pencil is marketed as a multi-purpose pencil. You can use it to line your waterline, line your lips against bleeding or to add definition, and to conceal blemishes. I primarily purchased it for use on the waterline so I got the lightest shade. It is rather too light to be used as a concealer for my skintone.


Packaging
  • Thin pencil that will need sharpening.
  • .04 oz or 1g

Product
  • When I swatched it on the skin, I noticed that the pigmentation was decent but the product doesn't seem to set so if you were to rub your finger on it, it will rub away. I doubt that it will work well as a concealer. I think the best uses would be the waterline and to add more definition to your lips. 
  • On the waterline, the brightening effect is subtle but noticeable and looks very natural. 
  • The pencil is not too creamy but creamy enough that you won't need to use so much pressure to deposit the color. It also has a waxy feel to it. 
  • After a couple hours, I noticed a good amount of fading. Alas! It's hard to find a pencil that last on the waterline. 

Final Thought

Thought this pencil is multi-tasking, I would be cautious when used for the eyes and for blemishes. Must either sanitize between uses or better yet, use a different pencil. Longevity is a bit disappointing but texture and pigmentation is fairly good.

  3. Very natural and the glow is subtle...I have always been going back to one or two shades I have for highlighting my brow so I have no need for this although I'd love to try a pinky one!

    1. I usually don't highlight my brows. I think this might be too light for me.

  4. Love how it can be a dupe for the ever so famous MAC Chromagraphic in NW20 :) Looks absolutely great on the waterline!

  5. It looks good on the waterline! I've been meaning to get a skintone pencil for the waterline for ages but keep putting it off.... Been debating about this or the Rimmel version.

    1. The Rimmel version looks a little more peachy. I actually prefer this color for the waterline. It looks more natural.

  8. I have this too and agree with the lasting power, but I've just come to accept the fact that not much will last in my waterline lol, which is why I bought this pencil too. Great review xx

    1. yeah and even when they do, they always seem to fade more around the corners.

  9. It does have a nice brightening effect though. Have you ever tried setting you water line with a powder after lining with cream/pencil? It helps a bit with the fading.

    1. Yea I've done that with black liners and it does help but sometimes I just don't have time or forget to add powder to it.
