Nice pencil, gives a good base, especially for white eyeshadows. Makes them more vibrant. My only complaints are that if you use too much it creases really easily and that it's a bit difficult to blend.
I guess I'm the party pooper here, but this pencil is highly overrated, IMO. It is simply "crease city" on me, and I don't normally have creasing issues with eye colors. I still don't get the hype, but to each his own!
Like many others, I love this too but was really skeptical at first thinking a stark white pencil? For what? Then I saw everyone using it as an eye base or primer. Once blended and smoothed out it evens and brightens my lids nicely, makes my e/s go on better, last longer and show up more. 8+ hours and no creasing or fading, even makes cheap e/s look like a million bucks and a little goes a long way. In fact, the less you use the better it performs (too much and it can crease as it is very creamy. I however, have fairly dry lids so it's perfect for me). I've even heard it can be used like BeneFit High Brow so I'll try that next now that I'm a believer and once again, MUA rec's and reviews didn't disappoint. I got a couple other shades to use as bases with darker e/s and for smoky eye looks which I will review after I test drive more (Dark Brown & Iced Mocha) and will probably pick up Yogurt, Slate and either Gold or Bronze next (I am fairly pale, but warm-toned so I have no interest in any of the cool toned shades). I don't have issues with sharpeners; I have two that fit perfectly, the round silver German duo sharpener from Sally Beauty Supply, and a Bliss chubby lip crayon sharpener I got with that pencil. Any large-opening sharpener seems to work since these are not an unusual size, but they're soft so I freeze for a bit before attempting to sharpen so I don't lose a lot of product (at least until I decide whether or not to put them in jars or not). continued >>
NYX's Jumbo Pencil in Milk, I love it. I use it to brighten my eye and for a highlighter and I think I'm going to be using it for smokey eyes now lol. The only con about this product is easy to break so be careful when you put the cap back on and don't press too hard to apply it. Otherwise the product is great.
I love this eyeshadow stick. It works wonders. i use it as a primer and when i do a smoky look. I just absoultly love it! The only problem is finding a sharpener big enough.
I am so pleasantly surprised by the quality of the NYX JEP's. I haven't found one yet that I didn't like the quality of but this one came close. I got Milk after reading reviews here & watching a few youtube vids. I've already "depotted" it in my microwave which took 10 minutes & the assistance of a straw but I finally got it all out. For those of you thinking about this, my microwave is 900 watts. This took longer to "cook" than a lean cuisine :p
Anyway, I like the matte white of this, it's creamy like the other NYX JEP's. I used it as a base without UDPP to see the difference & it did crease a lot & wore off in some areas on my oily lids. I will be using it with UDPP or MoM from now on. This does make your shadows pop quite nicely & also works well on the waterline. I also mixed it with a bit of ULTA e/s in Bone to try on the small dark spots I get near the tear duct & it held up very well. I don't think I would try it as a total under-eye concealor though.
The one drawback for me about this was that it sheers out almost to nothingness & can look chalky if you're not careful with your blending. continued >>
Great price and great color payoff! I use it over UDPP so that it won't crease and it works great to bring out my eyeshadow colors. I haven't had trouble sharpening it either and it lasts a long time!
I really do like this product, especially for the price. Yes, it is a pain to sharpen, but oh well. I wish they had more reasonable colors though, I feel like a lot of the other colors are rather ridiculous,
I find that this product is really good as a base, if you use something like UDPP, but I most often use it as a liner. I use a angled brush and load up the brush and then use it as a gel liner. I think it works better than my pencil liners and the color works very well.
Love it. I use this to highlight my eyes (tear ducts and brow bone), but it's a bit too white for me and if I'm not careful I'll end up looking like a clown.=P
It's dirt cheap and easy to use. I saw that some find it hard to blend...I find it too easy to blend, so if I'm not careful I'll ''blend'' (rub) it right off my skin and I'll have to reapply it.
