I bought this in Lime and like it so far. Normally, I stay away from green eye shadows since they usually just look unnatural, but the lime is more of a cool gold shade, which is nice. Goes on smoothly & can be blended with your finger. Worth buying.

I have these in three shades - Milk, Cottage cheese and Yogurt.
Milk is wonderful to brighten the inner corner of the eye, I often apply it to the whole lid and then put on black eyeliner because it makes it stand out more.
Cottage cheese is a pearly white and I often use it alone, without any other eye product except for mascara to highlight the inner eye corner. But because it is shimmery it is more obvious than Milk so I apply it more sparsely.
Yogurt is the shade I use least and the reason I don't buy any of the bright, colored jumbo pencils, I just can't find a good use for it and I don't like to layer eyeshadow over cream products. Not because of the staying power or creasing (I don't have oily lids so products rarely crease on me) but because I prefer to use a real primer. I sometimes use it to line my lower lashline but I am not sure I would buy again. I am guessing it would be a good replacement for Cottage cheese for ladies with more tan skin, I am NW15 and Cottage cheese looks pretty natural on me but might look too sharp on darker skin (especially if you are going for a natural look) so Yogurt might be the better choice.
People are probably disappointed in these because they are similar to a lot of other Jumbo eye pencils out there but most, even if they are just as good (the L.A. Colors ones), don't have such a wide selection so I'm guessing that's why people love them.

Um these feel too cheap to use, I prefer using maybelline eye colour tattoos than these there longer lasting and easier to use I think. Didn't care much for these at all

Good variety of colors and it's nice to have as a collection.. However, these do crease so badly. Eventhough you apply UDPP underneath. The packaging isn't that great because it's a pencil type and need to be sharpened.

This is a great cream eyeshadow -- goes on very smoothly, is very pigmented, and very blendable. The problem with it is about sharpening. It is annoying that it is too big for all but the NYX sharpener which I don't have yet. Even with the sharpener, I have misgivings about how it would actually sharpen because it is made of plastic. A lot of people recommend depotting it, but I like the control you get from the pencil element.

I've owned three different Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencils and they all crease on me. Even with a base! I will not repurchase.

After seeing many reviews and tutorials on YouTube I went to my local beauty supply and found them. The ones I actually bought are Milk (white) and French Fries (dark brown). Since I have oily lids and my makeup never lasted as long as I wanted it to I decided to use Milk as an eye shadow primer. It works like magic! My makeup lasts all day and night if I need it to and the colors are so much more vibrant. As for French Fries I use it when I do a neutral eye or as everyday eyeliner. I can't wait to go back and get some more! :) x

I have about 10 of these. When you compare the amount of product you get and the price and the quality, they are pretty good. I have dry lids and they never crease if I put e/s over them. My only complaint is their color range is more on the warmer side. My favorite color is purple which is a cool purple color. I put Mac shale or quarry over it for an easy smokey eye look.

I use these pencils as eye liners only, so I can't comment on how long they last as eyeshadows or eyeshadow bases. The colour comes off easily on an eye liner brush, which I then use to line my eyes. They last quite well as eyeliners and there is enough product in one stick that I won't need to repurchase again for a while.
I would recommend these as eyeliners, but not as all over lid colours since they do seem too creamy to last all over.
I dont really like the packaging, but over-all its ok.

I wished these didn't crease so badly on me, because they make great bases for shadows. However, even over a primer and topped with a powder shadow, these are horrible on my lids. Granted, I do have oily skin, but typically, Urban Decay Primer Potion prevents creasing until the very end of my work day, even if I also use a MAC Paint Pot, Benefit cream shadow, and a few other cream bases. However, it doesn't keep the NYX pencils from becoming an oily looking mess after only a few hours. I ended up giving most of my pencils away and will probably be doing the same with the few colors I have remaining. They do have a wide variety of great colors, though, and they look great when I first apply them; they really bring out a pop of color from shadows I use over them, especially those with less pigmentation. If you have dry or normal lids, maybe these will work better for you.
