NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil- French Fries

So NYX has come to Ireland recently and I'm slowly trying out their products. I'm actually being quite restrained for once! I'm starting by trying out all the most hyped products and they are living up to the hype so far.

So pretty much anyone who has the internet has heard of the Jumbo Pencils at some stage or another so of course it was on my very long list of things to try out.
I know most people would go for the shade 'Milk' and I was planning to but then this little guy caught my eye. It's the shade called @French Fries'
I love goldy brown tones as i find the make my blue eyes stand out a bit more so I ended up opting for this one. No doubt I'll be returning for Milk in the near future though.
This a beautifully creamy pencil that is lovely and pigmented.

The colour of the pencil is the colour you will have on your eyes.I was a bit disappointed with this at first because i thought that they set. (they don't for me)
I put it on and blended it out and a few minutes later it had all gathered in my crease. I just set it with eyeshadow now and it really ups the vibrancy of the shadows I put on top.I haven't tried this with a primer because i haven't felt the need to. While set with eyeshadow it makes everything last all day.
It's easily removed with miceller water or eye makeup remover.
I like to use my Wet 'n' Wild comfort palette (Review Here) over this and I love how it turns out.
 They retail for €5.99 here in Ireland which is a great price for a fabulous product.
Also, these have to be sharpened with the big sharpener that you can get in most places. They don't twist up, which I found out after spending ten minutes trying to twist them up. Sometimes I can be a little bit of an idiot..
Have you tried these?What did you think? And what shades should I pick up on my next shopping spree?
