Great as an inner corner highlight. If you lean toward the oily-er-lids I wouldn't use this as a base as it just doesn't help any other eyeshadow stick (despite others saying it might). I use this every day to highlight my inner corner and love it.
This product is used as a base by many people. I use it as abase on top of primer because my eyelids are so oily that it slides right off by itself. It also creases on me.
When used on the waterline, it comes off pretty easily, but I have watery eyes so that's not a big shocker or anything.
It's pretty cheap at Ulta, where I got mine. The cap is cheapy clear plastic and cracks super easily.
Would I buy again? Yes and No. If I can't find anything better, I'll continue to purchase, but do I really want to? No.
LOVE this product, makes all shadows pop and stay put. I used this under some inexpensive shadows and they looked much more pigmented. If you own the shimmer 88 palette or any coastal scents palettes this is a MUST. Will buy until they no longer make this product!!
NYX's jumbo pencil makes an awesome base for eyeshadows
After reading great reviews about this product I decided to try it out for myself. I usually don't use bases because I think my primer does a pretty good job of keeping my shadows nice and bright but wow this really does make a difference! It is pretty cheap for the amount of product you get because honestly you're not even using that much when you apply this. Ir was $5.99 CAD so I'm okay with the price. The packaging is okay though, you need to buy a special sharpener for this because the pencil is huuuge and I don't really like the lid because if you push it down too much it cracks, blah. So I'm planning on just depotting this pencil so I can use it without having to sharpen it ever. I tested this under MAC's electric eel and it really made the blue pop but if you don't use a primer with this it WILL crease, or maybe that's just because my eyelids are oily. Anyway I used UDPP under it and it was perfect. :) I don't really recommend using this as a waterline pencil because it transfers onto the bottom lashes too easily and it looks super sloppy. But for the price, amount of product you get and lasting power this is definitely a great buy for anyone. :)
Great as an eyeshadow primer, or to help eyeshadow colors POP!
I forgot how amazing this product is! I have been using Benefit's High Brow and Eye bright for a long time to highlight under my brow and in my inner corner. I recently decided to clean out my makeup and found all my old NYX jumbo pencils. I decided to switch out my benefit products for my NYX pencil in MIlk. OMG! It works the same if not better and you can't beat the price! I draw a line under my brow, on my inner corner and then on my eyelid and blend with finger. If i don't have time to put shadow on that gives me a quick look but it is also a great base and really makes everything pop and stand out. I don't use this in my crease so I don't notice any creasing. I usually use a eyeshadow primer underneath also. It works great as a base in my waterline and then I can put any color shadow on top of it.
News flash!!! These can easily be sharpened with a plain old eyeliner(thick size) pencil sharpener. Put it in fridge a few minutes to make for easier sharpening. Don't need to depot and definitely don't throw away when point wears down. The plastic coating around the pencil is sharpener-friendly. Come on gals, it's not rocket science !! Best way I found to use it, rub some on my finger and pat on eyelid.
This is a little wonder stick. I bought after noticing that absolutely everybody used it in their looks on Makeupbee. It definitely is an awesome base for shadows. It's creamy enough to make colors stick and be super bright, and helps turn mediocre shadows into awesome looking shadows. It's dry enough so it doesn't move and you can still blend shadows on top of it without a powder base, but I still use UD primer potion just in case. My only complaint is that I feel like I need to tug on my eye to really get a nice base blended on. I suppose I could use a brush, I just don't have time for that. So I end up covering the eye up to the brow bone with white stripes and blending it around with my finger.
I looove this and use it every single day for my eyeshadow and in my inner corners before putting white eyeshadow to brighten it and it helps it stick and last longer. The only problem with this product is its packaging. For one the cap cracks easily and if you close it to far it can squish the product. Anne you can't really sharpen the plastic do you have to depot it I hate it when ppl think once it looses its tip you have to throw it away, such a waste of product all you have to do is depot it. I have had mine for a while now and it takes forever to use up even with every day use. It is amazing for making eyeshadow apply true to color. Though by itself since it its so creamy it will crease so I always use a primer (elf eyelid primer 1$) and apply eyeshadow over it
I don't think I can live without this product
