I absolutely love Milk! I have oily skin, but seem to have normal eyelids and these have an ok staying power on me. I love that you can have an assortment of these as different colored e/s bases for the price of one MAC pp (even though I think MAC pp work better on their own). I use these pencils with UD PP and have no creasing for up to 16 hours (!!), whereas on with no primer and just shadow on top, they last about 6 hours before creasing. Overall, I love Milk for its versatility out of all of them - most natural and brightening browbone/inner corner highlight ever! Definitely worth a try.

I have pretty normal skin on my eyelids and this seems to bring out the oil in 'em so I don't recommend this as a stand alone shadow or a base.

I like using this on my inner lower eyelid rim but it is quite stark. I do not recommend this if you just want something subtle. When I use it on my inner rim I'm going for that white brightness and extend it a bit to the outer edge but it's a specific aesthetic that a lot of people don't like. Most would be better suited for something softer if they want their ~widening and brightening~ to be less noticeable.

ah i absolutely hate this for my eyes because of intense creasing but i found better use! lol i put it on my lips and mix my lipstick or gloss with it to get that baby milky color, especially with pinks. fun stuff :D cuz i can get that milky color without the blue tone pink thats usually in baby pink colors since i can use any of my pink colors.

This product is nice, but it creases so badly! I don't think I have that oily of lids (MAC paint pot normally goes the job), but even when I apply Milk over MAC's Soft Ochre and set it with a powder eyeshadow, it still creases like crazy. I like the concept and the formula... but I feel like the product doesn't work for me. This is obviously a personal issue, so I still give this product an overall high rating

Fantastic white jumbo pencil / eye base.
- - -
Pros - long wearing, blendable, highly pigmented, great for wearing as a base or alone (for a bright eye effect), price.
- - -
Cons - availability (I think NYX is only available online or at Ulta and these seem to be a hot commodity at Ulta because they run out). Like another user mentioned, it's so large you need a special sharpener for it. But neither of these are really comments on the product itself, just things to consider.

Overall - great product. Definitely worth tracking down and owning. Perfect for brightening up eyes. Ulta does a lot of buy one get one 50% off and all of Nyx products are pretty decent. I think they're regularly priced for about 5.69.

I use this for my waterline. Best white eyeliner I have found yet. It stays on really well and is very pigmented, plus the price is right.

I love this product, definitely a great base, highlight, and inner corner color, you can't use too much or it will crease, but has never creased on me . the only problem i have with this is the packaging. i don't like that it's in a stick form, cause it's really hard too find a sharpener big enough & the NYX one's for it are kinda expensive, i wish it was in a pot form like the other bases, the caps are also really cheap, and crack very easy * over all this is a great base, i would just rather the packaging be a litle different.

Hands down my favorite Jumbo Pencil. I think it has the most tacky like consistency, and it truly makes eyeshadows pop when applied first to the lid. I can't tell you how many times I've bought this, and the only tedious thing about the jumbo pencils are sharpening/depotting them.

I love this pencil for really making my eyeshadows pop when I apply them over it. The one thing that irritates me is the caps apparently crack easily because every time I go into the Ulta near me almost all of them are cracked or broken. But I do love the product and love the price.

I like this product, but it's not perfect by any means. I have oily lids, so there is absolutely no wearing this on it's own, ever. I apply this over TFSI, using my finger. Then the key is to apply the thinnest layer possible, blending out enough that the white is still visible (to make colors pop) and tacky enough that colors will stick. I've had no issues with sharpening mine. I use a NYX sharpener, and despite using this quite regularly, I've only needed to sharpen it twice. You really need so little each time, that if it works for you, it's quite economical. Lately I tend to use MAC Painterly p/p over TFSI, but for days when I need something to really make my eyeshadows pop, Milk does the trick!
