This is one of my HG products! Granted, I don't use it as most reviewers seem to be using it.

After I tried a NYX pencil eyeliner in white for my waterline, I grew tired of it quickly because it never stayed sharp, the cap always fell off, and for some reason, if I didn't apply it at the perfect angle the paper around the pencil felt like it was stabbing me.

So, I decided that perhaps the jumbo eye pencil would be less painful to apply. To avoid wrinkles, I just push on the under eye area, not pulling it down, and lean forward to apply it very carefully as to not get it on my lower lashes. It looks great and stays on like a dream! Even if my eyes are watery it doesn't budge.

After reading tons of recommendations for this as an eyeshadow base that makes your eyeshadows pop, I caved in and got it. These don't skimp on pigmentation, but that's about it. It is not smooth and I feel like my lids are being dragged like Meek Miller after he accused Drake of not writing his own raps. It is also very tacky, which is supposed to be a good thing because it means that eyeshadows will stick to it but it just feels very awkward on my lids! It's just sort of sitting on top of the skin, if you know what I mean.

I bought this thinking I could use this as a base for my eyeshadows to make them brighter and last longer. Yeah, no. A lot of my shadows (high end and drugstore) will not adhere to it, so it just looks like I have straight up white on my lids with a bit of sparkle. On top of that, it fades away quickly, so I can't use it as a brow bone highlight or an inner corner highlight. Plus, regardless of whether I use a primer below it or not, this ends up creasing on my oily lids, making it not even worth the effort of applying. My cap is also busted and cracked, pretty much from the get go too. I much prefer the Milani shadow eyez pencils, which work well on their own and as bases.

Perfect for multiple uses: As a shadow base, highlighter and mixing with other products. The consistency is creamy and easy to blend. It does not bleed or transfer very easily. Packaging is simplistic and fresh. Does last a long time.

To put it shortly and concisely:

PROs:
- applied before eyeshadows intensifies their colour
- used only on its own, brightens the eye nicely

CONs:
- creases a lot with and without an eyeshadow primer (and I don't have oily eyelids)
- yep, it really does-crease-a-lot

I had great hopes for this product. Unfortunately, it makes my life more difficult when I'm applying eyeshadows, so I won't repurchase it again.

I've been looking for a matte white eyeshadow for a while and found this one. The price is very good and it looks really good after applying but oh my, it's creasing like crazy after just 5 minutes... I've tried everyting, with/without primer, powder, foundation, I've tried all combinations. I've used my fingers and brush but nothing works.. I will continue trying because i paid for it and can't return it but what a loss of money!

I use this as a base for my eye shadows, really makes them pop! Easy to apply, blendable. For reference i use this over my Benefit stay dont stray eye primer. Its also cheap and easy to find.

I use this as a shadow primer, highlighter, and water lining. If I'm using a very sheer shadow that's hard to pick up the color I'll use this first it adds a whole new dimension to some colors. Tends to hold my shadow on all day and it's $5.00.

I love using this, I use it after applying a primer(Like UD Primer Potion) and before a super bright colour to get the most payoff. I don't like this all over the lid because it can be super chalky and it's kind of dificult to work with drier matte formulas of eyeshadow but it is amazing for shimmers, sheens, satins and glitters. I've even had luck using matte MAC pigments(Clear Sky Blue and True Chartreuse) with this but it is not friendly with all formulas I guess. I love to apply UD All-Nighter Setting Spray(before mascara and non-waterproof eyeliner because it can cause it to run) and this gives me eye looks that look freshly applied, no oxidation, creasing or fading for HOURS. I also like to put some in my waterline and use a light nude, beige or pink on top to give me that more open or awake eye look that lasts a long time, otherwise nothing stays on my waterline. I like to use this on the eyelid with a neutral colour in the crease similar to this look, https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/9a/0a/12/9a0a12f199360b6543a1f54a850cec11.jpg the blue is where I would use Milk as a primer. I can't wait to try more JEP's!

This is a great staple base for making your shadows pop. For me the shadows on top last longer and don't flake as well.
