The NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils are super popular, especially the one in the color "Milk."
Makeup artist often use these pencils as a cream base under their eyeshadows to help intensify the colors. While on my journey to find the shade "Milk," I found that it was always sold out. So one day I went to my favorite store, Five Below and found the L.A. Colors Jumbo Eye Pencils.

NYX - Not a retractable pencil. Large pencil sharpener needed.
L.A.Colors - Sea Shell is a very opaque white color.
NYX - Milk is a white color.
TEXTURE / APPLICATION:
L.A. Colors - Glides on very smoothly and is super easy to blend. Has more of a light consistency. Not sticky at all.
NYX - Doesn't go on super smooth and tugs the eyelids a bit. Blends okay. Has a thick consistency. Feels a bit sticky.
L.A. Colors - Long lasting
NYX- LONG lasting
WHEN USED AS A BASE UNDER EYESHADOWS:
•L.A. Colors - Makes eyeshadows look more vibrant and prevented creasing very well.
•NYX - Makes eyeshadows look more vibrant and prevented creasing very well.
WHERE CAN THEY BE FOUND:
•L.A. Colors :
☆BOTH ARE WINNERS IN MY BOOK!☆
But to break it down more, the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil WINS for its thicker consistency and prettier, higher quality packaging. It can hold up on its own better.
The L.A. colors Jumbo Pencil is pretty worthy of the dupe title for the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils.
Please feel free to compare the swatches & comment below which product you think is better!
Have fun and take care.
