This is a great pencil as a highlighter, but I only use it for that. It's quite cheap, but I find I don't use it very much, and I had to buy a nyx sharpener just for the pencils, due to their size.

I have 6 of these pencils and they are all of consistent feel and spreadability. Milk is a bright white color in the stick and when applied thickly on the skin. I use it applied sparingly as a base to brighten eyeshadow colors and it works very well for monochrome black/grey/white looks. It's especially awesome for using on waterlines and brightening the inner corners of the eye. The consistency is waxier than other cream eyeshadows with the glide of smooth gel eyeliner. I honestly love the white, I use it constantly.
I have issues with the packaging. The lid tends to slide down the stick and squish the product sticking out the top and cracking from the bottom up. I wish there was a lip on the inside of the lid to keep the top from squishing the product.

This makes a great base. I use it every time I wear any of my pigments. The trick is to apply a THIN layer. I put it all over my eye-lid, crease, all the way up to my brow. My routine is concealer, thin layer of this, and then whatever pigments I'm wearing. I hate that it's a pencil though. So I depotted it into a little jar. Affordable, long wearing, and plenty of product for the price. Will definitely repurchase when I need to.

This creases. Crease crease crease crease. So be careful about where you apply it, and how thickly. I occasionally use this on the lid, thinly, but do not pull it into the crease. Then I apply an eyeshadow to set it. Use a primer underneath.
I also blend this out on my brow bone as a highlight, or I use it on top of another colour on the waterline, to brighten that colour.
It can also be used on the lips, underneath a lipstick or a gloss. The effect is pretty cool, as you can complete alter colours to your wish!
It's a good product, as long as you use it right. And it's cheap as hale, so even if you hate it, no biggie. I do wish it wasn't a jumbo though, as it's a bit of a pain finding a pencil sharpener for it.

This is a really o.k product. I believe it is a good for anyone who likes to do their makeup - Great for using on the inner corner of your eye to brighten it up and just under your brow bone. Only problem I have is sharpening it. I have also melted one down using a hairdryer into a little pot to use later one. It is not like the Nyx e/s base this is a lot chalkier than the e/s base and doesn't make colours pop as much.

One of the first nyx pencils I bought. Works great as a base or a white waterline liner. Excellent pigmentation, easy to use.

I love this pencil. It's my first NYX jumbo pencil but I plan to buy many more. It glides on so easily, it's really creamy and so easy to blend. The color is very pigmented and bright. I know most people use it as a base for eyeshadow but I usually just put it all over my lid to brighten up my eyes. It's really good for the inner corner of your eye as well. It doesn't crease on me and I feel it lasts quite a long time.The packaging seems ok too, haven't had any problems with it yet.

Like the other NYX Jumbo Pencils, it serves as a good base and is highly pigmented. Unlike the other colours, Milk is a great highlighting colour. That is all I can say to defend this product. I've purchased two Milk's in my lifetime and every time the cap has cracked. Even though I handle all my makeup with extreme care, for some reason the cap always insists on cracking. It is seriously irritating. Another complaint is that it does not last. Without any shadow its lifespan is probably an hour. With shadow it's probably about 2 hours. It's such a shame, but what can you do..

I bought this on the advice of many and really am disappointed. I guess it does it's job and it is hard to find a good white pencil, but I really don't use it often enough. I also find that it irritates my eyes, I wear contacts I don't know if the two are related. The cap is already cracked which doesn't matter really, but I think it shows how cheap it is. The good this is it last forever for me.
