I absolutely LOVE NYX jumbo pencils! I have black bean and milk, but I want them all! Milk is the perfect base for most colors. I use it with MAC Electric Eel and it really makes the color pop!
The only thing I took a lippie off for is that unless you use a base like UDPP or TFSI they will crease.

As an eyeshadow base I think this is way too dry - not sticky enough and somehwat flaky.
Won't buy again

The best for lighter colors that do not show on the skin. All you need to do is put this as a base for the color and tap in the light color (such as yellow) and it will show up very bright!
If you are looking for this as a brightener for your inner corner eyes I suggest no to for you have to blend it out well to make it look less chalky.
Another great use that i use this for is to SHAPE MY EYEBROWS. yes, you heard me correctly. I simply draw a line on top and bottom of my eyebrow to measure the thinness of my eyebrows and simply puck the hairs that are white from this pencil. It really gives a great precise way to pluck eyebrows and make them even.
only down side is that you have to sharpen the pencil where it would have been better if you could twist the end to get the product.

This is awesome! great eyeshadow base, I love it.

This color is awesome. If you want to make your shadows pop, I suggest using this. Of course, always use an eye primer (Too Faced Shadow Insurance is great) and then the Milk on top, then a shadow. It's great for tear duct or lower lash line/under eye color as well because when applied under a shadow, the color POPS and is just vibrant. It's totally affordable and glides on. I love this product. Definitely HG status in my book.

I love this pencil. It takes a little practice not to put it on too thick at first, but it provides a good base.

I LOVE NYX jumbo pencils. I don't think I can say much more about them. They are flawless. Creamy, very blendable, go on like silk, and come in so many colors! Get them!!

I have seen this used under light and dark shadows. Basically any color you have, can be used over this as a base. It brightens the eye and lifts any shadows you might have. I blend it out with my ring finger after applying a tad on the lid. If you don't blend it, it creases alot. It's very creamy and you need that for the shadow to last. Great product from NYX! I place a little UDPP on and let it dry before adding milk. A tip I picked up from TiffanyD on Youtube. I tried it alone on my lid, and got creasing.. so it needs shadow over it and to also be blended WELL. The black Revlon sharpener is made for rubber pencils like these and regular wood. It can fit 3 different size pencils, so it's worth it. I highly suggest getting it for all your pencils! It's very sharp. I also buy Sonia Kashuk sharpeners.

This is a very cheap base that i use for light shadows - the pencil has great pigment! the white is very vivid and opaque. It glides on creamy but gets powdery really fast. Really makes light colours applied onto this base pop :) I want the entire set of Nyx jumbo pencils for my bases lol

I love this product, its fantastic as a base (although apply a primer underneath as it is liable to crease alone) and really makes the colour of your eyeshadow pop out more. I live in Northern Ireland and NYX isnt available here, so I have to make my purchases on cherryculture or ebay which puts the price of the product up a little, but definitely still worth the money. Would buy this product again, along with other shades. Recommended.

Along with the UDPP, I use this as a base and this is gorgeous. I apply this product with a concealer brush, and the coverage is great not to mention the staying power and the color payoff. I just recently found NYX and am so suprised by quality, and the price just makes me want to buy practically the whole entire line!! Plus, a little goes a long way!

This stuff is terrific as an eyeshadow base (mind you, UDPP or some other primer must be applied underneath to prevent creasing), but it's extremely creamy and therefore should be blended well before layering other shades on top. However, if used correctly, this product makes eyeshadows literally pop. Great buy, and for five dollars, it's definitely worth the money.

it will or will not work depending on how u apply it. I use it as a eyebrow highlighter and it works pretty well. sometimes i use it as a eyeshadow base to contrast the eyeshadow colors and sometimes i even apply it under circle to highlight my eyes a lil bit and cover my dark circle. also, u can apply a lil bit of it on ur eye corner to expanse ur eyes in vision. multi-purpose pencil, cheap price, of course worth to buy.

I use this as a base for my e/s and i love it. But i still use UDPP when i use this so it wont crease

I love the product in general but love this color esp.
I use this as an all over lid base. I apply about three back anf forth strokes below the crease and blend upwith my finger. Doesnt crease when blended and makes the eye shaddows stick and look more intense becuase its against a white backdrop. Sharpened it today for the first time and really like that its not a wood pencil that is messy to sharpen. Clean and smooth and didnt leave splinters all in my sharpener. Cant recc this color and product enough!

After watching many Youtube tutorials on this product, I was excited to try it. When I found out it was available at Ulta, I made a special trip to get it. I went on beautifully at first but I was so diappointed with it because after a couple hours at work, I was creasing like crazy. I couldnt wait to get home to clean up the mess on my eyes. I'm sticking to my Too Faced Shadow Insurance.

I bought this because I wanted a matte white creamy shadow to use as a base and on its own. I discovered that on its own this creases like mad after a couple of hours and as base works quite well with matte, light powder shadows.
I also put this on my waterline to brighten my eye area and found that it wore off quickly and was slightly irritating, but looked nice and achieved the effect I wanted. I'm willing to try it on the waterline again despite the downsides. Overall, I'm pleased with the product, though it isn't as versatile as I imagined it would be.

I use this as a base over UDPP everytime I do a bright EOTD. I apply it with a mini concealer brush for even coverage. The matte white finish intensifies the color of e/s and makes them apply truer to the in-pan color. I have a tone of thses in different colors, but I use the white the most. Definite repurchase when necessary.

Milk is one of 6 NYX jumbo eye pencils that I own. It definitely creases on its own, even when I use a brush to thin out the pencil and even it out. The way it worked the best was when I used a MAC paint (bare canvas) as a base, then used milk eye pencil on top of the base (thinned with a brush), then eye shadow on top of the milk pencil. This makes my shadow colors very vivid. I like the matte quality of it. I am disappointed that it can't be used on its own, however.
UPDATE: I added a lippie because of how often I use this pencil and how versatile it is.

This is my favourite base for evening make up.It is soft and thick and it really makes your eye very radiant!
