love it layered, no stayin power just by itself though. i bought only this color and as soon as i got a chance to swatch it on my hand, i knew it wouldnt last, because it was extremely sticky and would not set. however layered with a powder eyeshadow over it and an eyeprimer like the udpp, it lasts a really long time.
my only complaint is the hugeness of the pencil, takes a special sharpener to sharpen it
I love this. I own 3 NYX Jumbo Pencils, and this is the most multi-purpose one! This works as a base for any color at all, and inner corner highlight, brow highlight, cheek bone highlight and anything you can think of! It's creamy, pigmented and goes on smoothly. I love this and recommend this to anyone! Packaging get's a 4 because I wastes a lot of product to sharpen and it's hard to find a sharpener to fit these.
this is my go-to base colour for my inner corner highlight when i wear eyeshadow. i apply it generously and apply a light shimmery eyeshadow on top to blend it out and makes the eyeshadow brighter and more vibrant. have never used it as a lid colour so my review is strictly for how i use it.
I must have oily eyelids since this did not work for me at all. It creased and faded away on me, whether I used this as a base or by itself. If you want an alternative, try MAC Pure White Chromaline.
I love putting Milk as a highlighter on my tear duct and on my brow bone. It also makes a beautiful, subtle eyeliner (when used correctly). This pencil is a must-have for brightening the eyes! I really love using French Fries as a smudgy eye liner (especially on my upper last line). My only problem with this product is that I have to sharpen it, but since I have the Nyx sharpener, it shouldn't be a problem. Also, the lid of the pencil tends to crack easily.
A must for light and bright colors, as a base to eyeshadows. I wish it didn't crease so much but maybe I'm layering it on too much. I have this in various colors and to this day, Milk is my favorite!
Absolutely LOVE this. As others have mentioned, it is great as an under-brow highlighter, and on the tear duct. But, I use it primarily to make my eyeshadow "stick" and last all day. First I prime using Too-Faced Eyeshadow Insurance, then dot the Milk Jumbo Eye Pencil over my lid, crease, and up to the brow bone. I spread the product with the tip of a finger, until I have a light layer all over, from lash line to brow. I apply whatever eyeshadow(s) I'm using over it.
By "stacking" these products my eyeshadow lasts 12 hours or so, with NO creasing or fading (and I have oily eyelids).
To resolve the problem of the cap cracking (which then results in pushing the cap too far onto the pencil, causing the tip of the pencil to jam up against the inside of the cap, and ruining the point)....here's a trick:
Take a piece of scotch tape as long as the circumference of the cap, plus an extra 1/8" or so. Line up the edge of the tape with the edge of the cap, and apply the tape strip around the cap. Try to keep the edge of the tape lined up with the edge of the cap all around, and overlap the ends of the tape strip by about 1/8". You only need one strip of tape per pencil.
That tape will help prevent the cap from cracking at the edge. If it does manage to crack anyway, the tape keeps those cracks from "opening up" when you put the cap on, so you won't be able to push the cap down so far you end up smashing the tip of the pencil on the inside of the end of the cap.
I had been purchasing NYX online, then broke my vow against going to Ulta and began purchasing there and now there is a NYX section at my local beauty supply store which is highly unusual!!! I am in love with the Milk jumbo pencil and have used it as a base as well as a bright white shadow paired with a palette full of vivid pinks, greens and blues. It's a great product, easy to apply and control, smooth gliding. There is a definite back up in my kit (on the off chance that NYX decides to end production)
I bought a back up of this too! This goes on so smooth and lasts a pretty good long time if worn with a good primer. Def an awesome product.
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.
