This is a great product to use as a primer, provided you apply it lightly. I also use it on my brow bone and even on the cheeks as a highlight.
The only think I don't like about it is the packaging. I wish the pencil was a twist, instead of needing to sharpen it. I'm thinking about depotting it into a jar.
Its a must-have when you like bright eye makeup ! It makes colorful eyeshadows so much more vibrant. Some people complain about how they're creasing, well if you use a good primer underneath and you dont apply too much, you shouldn't experience any creasing at all !
Nice basic matte white. I use this as a highlight for inner eye and inner eye corner, and it blends in easily and really naturally into my skin. You can use it sheer (like me) for the very natural brightening effect or you can keep it minimally blended for an opaque white. It is also AMAZING for helping pop bright colors. Just know that it does add white if you do that (for ex, red e/s over Milk will turn it slightly pinnkish..) Just a tiny bit, don't worry!
As for the sharpening... This product would be perfect if it came in an automatic form.. a girl can wish.
I had this in my collection for quite a while but never really used it until recently; now, I use it on a daily basis as an inner corner & brow highlight base.
it applies so creamy and pigmented and blends into the skin beautifully. continued >>
After Utla had been sold out of this color of the Nyx Pencils, I finally got one and I like it. I highlight my eyes inner corners with it and it makes me look more awake. So far I have had no problems with it. I just hope that when I go to sharpen it, that it's not too hard to do because that would suck.
I LOVE this product, I use it for 2 things, priming my lids and on my waterline when I use bright colours. I find it makes the colours brighter and open my eyes when on the waterline. I did have to depot it due to hearing it's hard to sharpen and thought it'd be easier. One downfall, it can make the shadow you put over patchy due to its texture, but it can easily be overcome by patting instead of sweeping the lid colour. I will FOR SURE be repurchasing when I run out, which will most likely be a while
This has become a staple in my makeup bag. I have many uses for NYX Jumbo eye pencils. I love using Milk as a upper lid liner, and I use it for my waterline. I use it as a primer sometimes. And as a highlighter on my tearduct, and on the outside corner occassionally.
If I have no idea what kind of look I'm going to create for the day, many times I reach for my Milk Jumbo eye pencil, and creation begins right there. Some of my favorite looks start with this pencil.
Has a creamy texture so it's soft of your lids. However, it can be somewhat sticky. It's super affordable, and you can find good deals on NYX products at Ulta, so you can score even more!
Overall, I love this pencil and honestly don't know what I did without it.
It's a staple! Love it!

I bought this pencil in Milk, which is a bright white colour. I use this pencil on the inside corners of my eyes and smudged under my brow as a highlighter. They go on really smoothly without being too soft, and blend really well. I set it with translucent powder and it does not budge at all. I am really happy with this product and they are so cheap that I am definitely going to by more. Overall I am really impressed with the NYX brand, and I cannot wait to try more of their products.
These don't quite work for me as a base unless I use UDPP underneath. Without a primer, they crease like crazy. But this one is very useful as an inner corner highlight so I'll give it an extra lippy. It is very pigmented so you don't need to use a lot of product.
I finally was able to get my hands on this a few months ago at a pharmacy near where I teach. I only have one other NYX shadow pencil (French Fries) and while I loved the colour, that thing creased like an accordian, even with primer underneath, unless I blended it out almost to nothingness and applied ANOTHER powder shadow on top, which seems to defeat the whole point of wearing such a lovely colour of shadow - I just can't wear it on its own, even with primer underneath. So I was reluctant to give this a try - I mean, it's cheap enough but I didn't want to find my eye makeup had slid all over the place 2 hours after applying it.... But, to my surprise, I quite like this as a brow highlighter and for the inner corners of my eyes which are areas where I don't need to worry about creasing. Blended well, Milk sort of vanishes, rather than remaining as a garish white streak and as it blends away, it leaves behind a nice, illuminated look. I've also used this over primer (UDPP), blended, and with powder shadows applied overtop and it does make some colours much more vibrant and, fortunately, it doesn't seem to crease.
The "packaging", such as it is, is nothing more than a clear plastic cap that cracks in no time. And these pencils need to be sharpened, rather than being "twist up" and I HATE sharpening pencils because even with a really good sharpener, you still lose a lot of product and the tips can still break off if you aren't 100% careful
