I love all of these Jumbo Eye Pencils, this is the first one I've tried since I picked it up at some random store in a local mall-it is hard to find for me. This one works great as a inner corner highlight to brighten up your eye, but I've found that it doesn't work too well as a browbone highlight for me, it appears chalky and fake-looking. Otherwise, this product is great for the other purposes-a base for eyeshadows and a inner corner highlight. I'll be repurchasing along with the other pencils when I run out, I'm trying to get as many as I can, they're great!!

I love this product!!!
It works great as a base under any eyeshacow, and really helps brighten even really cheap ones from the drugstore! I especially like to use it under my MAC paint pot to prevent creasing!
It has great pigmentation and is defenitly worth the price. You can also use it as a white eyeliner on your waterline if you want, but it can look too harsh, so I would defenitly say that's personal preferance :)
The only bad thing I have to say about this product is that it's hard to sharpen, but if you really are having trouble, then de-potting it is super easy (plenty of youtube videos!).

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.
