I got this to use as a E/B I wear really pigmented eyeshadow and I have to say I actually like this more than Mac paint pots and Mac shadesticks and copare to the price NYX is less than $4 and shadesticks are $16 and paintpots are a lil more I like the NYX because all I need to use is very lil and my eyeshadow really pop I use this everyday on top of my UD primer and without it ! Great products since it's a crayon it really easy to apply to and again a lil goes a long way ;)
so many people have the idea to use this underneath eyeshadow. well, i use it on my waterline. it gives you the look of brighter and larger eyes which i loove. anywho, it comes on really creamy and wonderful and the product's good, i just dont really like the packaging.
I use this as a highlighter on the inner corners of my eyes and cupid's bow. It would probably look unnatural as a highlighter on tan or dark skin tones unless they blend it in very well. I like that it's not shimmery, just adds highlight. The cap breaks very easily. It still stays on but it's cracked on all sides. Also, it melts in the summer if you keep it in your purse. It still works fine, but has to be applied with fingertips or a brush to prevent over-application in the case of it melting. All in all, a good cheap highlighting pencil.
I never bought this product to start with, I luckily got a bundle of these in a swap from someone. Every single one that I have tried, I have liked because they crease like nobody's business. The only one that I have tried that doesn't crease that much is this one, Milk.
I don't really use it that much, but I sometimes use it as a highlight on brow bone and SOMETIMES as a base. Any time that I use it for that, it seems to make my lids feel dry and creases up all over my lid and just looks terrible. At times, if I decide to use it on my inner corner, it does the same thing and leaves those little "eye boogers" in my eye. So....not worth it.
I have used many of these, but not all of them. I think the only ones that I haven't tried that I would like to is the bright vibrant ones like yellow, orange, cherry(?), and pots and pans (it's not vibrant, I know). I've tried many of these, I just don't like them. The consistancy is wonderful, I do agree, but they're so soft that they crease too much. They are great for the price, but would I buy them? No, probably not. Are they worth trying? Of course they are, they are extremely versatile and for the price of something being so, you can't beat it. But I'm still not sure about these, maybe I just need to try more or something *shrugs*
I currently use UDPP, or I just wet my eyeshadows to make them stain my lids longer. I bought this as a base, I am sort of disspointed because all the makeup gurus rave about this product. The white chalk color was hard to blend on my tan skin, perhaps if I had more of a neutral color such as nyx yogurt would be more ideal. I may exchange it for yogurt but Im debating the quality of nyx pencils because this also creased after all day wear. In the past, I have bought Avon, and Estee Lauder jumbo pencils and they are creamy dreamy with alot of pop with no creasing. Im just not impressed. Perhaps the makeup gurus dont have oily lids because I do. Sometimes putting foundation on my lids does the trick too.
It's very easy to deposit color straight from the pencil to your eyelid or to a brush - a dab here and there is all you need. It's really that soft and creamy! The color will definitely show up, and it's a good base for eyeshadow to stick on to and sort of emphasize the paler ones (I mean those that normally doesn't show up on your lids even with UDPP). I really like it.
this was one of my first nyx jumbo eye shadow pencils i bought. i love this color as a easy highlight right below my eyebrows or the inner corners of my eyes
I love this product so much! At my local Ulta it is only $4. I don't like how you have to sharpen it though, I wish it was retractable. It creases, so you must use a base. It is very pigmented, so a little goes a long way!
Overall: I love this product!
I love this! It's a great white base! For around $3, it is AMAZING! It does crease badly ( every NYX jumbo eye shadow pencil I own does) but if you only use a small amount and rub it all over the lid, it won't crease as bad. You also have to use a primer when you use this, but other than that its great! Must have in my collection!
Orignally bought this to try as an e/s base as it was cheap. I applied a thin layer over my TFSI, and it creased as the day wore on. I don't have oily lids either. Even though it was cheap ( $2-3 ) iirc at Ulta, I didn't want it to go in my "swap stash", so I decide to try it as a primer for under my brow bone. I apply a thin line under my brow bone, tap it out to blend ( if i swiped it w/ finger instead of tapping, it would disappear). I then apply my highlighter on top of it( have used a white matte shade for awhile now), and it makes the white "pop". I also use it w/ shimmer highlighters, and it makes them "pop" too! So, overall I am thrilled w/ this as an under brow primer, and will definitely repurchase it for this reason when I run out :)
