When I first bought this I was so disappointed because it creased up on me just a few hours after putting it on with shadow on top. Well yesterday I came to this board and was getting ready to write the most negative review...but after reading all the positives about it I decided to give it another try. So today I used it with MAC's Painterly paint pot on the bottom and then put it on very sparingly. After that I patted my shadows on and WOW...Milk made my eyeshadow look incredibly beautiful and vibrant. My eyeshadow looked like it had been airbrushed on. By the end of the day I did have a very, very, very slight bit of creasing but it could have easily been patted up with a bit more shadow. I'm very happy I gave this product a second chance, they make for great bases when put on top of another base. This is a perfect option if you are looking to really make your eye shadows pop. I'll def. be using Milk again and I cannot wait to get more Jumbo Eye Shadow pencils to experiment with. A lot of people complain that they are useless after they get worn down, but I'm hoping to turn my pencil into a paint pot once it's running low apparently it's easy to do.
I use this to highlight under the arch of my brow and brighten near the tear ducts of my eyes. Works well but i could imagine the texture would crease easy. Does the job at a fabulous price so i would repurchase.
I use it hit bright on eyes head,improve eye -look more graduated.
I completely love this as an eyeshadow base (as well as as a highlighter below my eyebrows or near my tear ducts). It's creamy, easy to apply evenly, and really makes any color that I put over it, pop. I also found it very easy to depot, and doing that didn't change the product at all. It does crease (even with a primer) on its own, but if I put a primer under it and eyeshadow over it, then I have no problems with creasing. Furthermore, this stuff is super inexpensive, and it lasts forever. I've been using mine almost daily for close to a year now, and I have more than half of it left. I will always keep this in my collection.
I have naturally pigmented lids (like the "natural eyeshadow" some people get), in which they are yellower than my skintone (NC20). I use this jumbo pencil for many things because it's so versatile.
I use this all over the lid when I want to neutralize my lids (on top of TFSI), applying straight from the pencil, making sure not to apply too much or it will crease. This makes whatever shadows I'm using on top to become more true-to-pan. I use it as a base for the inner corner highlight. I also use it to highlight my browbones, drawing lightly following the arch of my brows and blending it with fingers. It gives my brows a bit of a "lift." A little goes a long way! I don't like the pencil packaging though it's convenient for application, but will continue to use because it works well and is dirt cheap.
I love using it as a base and left on on the corner of my eyelids if im using bright eye shadows like green or yellow. It really really brightens up even the cheapest eyeshadow ( like those 80 color palettes) and if used with a eyelid primer, it will last. I don't get any of the creasing some people mentioned but then again i've never worn this alone without any other shadow
Creases like crazy! All of the NYX Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencils crease like crazy even with UDPP! What is all the hype about? Even though it's cheap, please do not buy them. It's a waste of money.
Let me start off by saying, Im a H/E snob. Never look at drugstores unless im getting clear eyebrow gel. This is gorge and great for the price!! You must get!! Only gripe is trying to sharpen :(
Love it! I depotted mine after I used up all the product on top of the pencil. Works great for me. I wear too faced shadow insurance and use this as my eyebase color. I usually apply with finger-- to warm up the product. Do not over apply to reduced any creasing. If applied properly it does last for 8+ hrs. Not a fan of packaging. Overall, great product.
I love this pencil! It's great. It's ideal for using as a base for bright and vibrant colors. I used this on top of Too Faced Shadow Insurance and it last all day on me! The colors didn't crease until 8 hours later, just don't use too much, and blend it in with your finger! The texture is really smooth, the color is build-able, so you can make it sheer, or a really true white. The thing I would change about this pencil is that it should be a twist up pencil, not one that needs to be sharpened, you'll need a huge sharpener! The price is very affordable! But it's not the easiest thing to find in stores! For me I got mine from my best friend who purchased hers in L.A and decided to give it to me since she never used it! :) Great find!
