NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil In Milk

NYX jumbo eye pencils are a multi-task product, that can be used as an eyeliner & double up as an eye shadow. There are 28 shades available, I own 'Milk' a bright white shade.
 Milk is NYX most popular shade in the eye pencil line. The same as all white liners, when used on the water line it gives the elusion of wider eyes, but the main selling point of  'Milk'  is that it also doubles up as an eyeshadow base.

When used as a base it intensifies the colour of any shadow applied over it  & makes the eyeshadow shade true to colour on the skin (see pictures below) also increasing the lasting power of your eye look.
The pencil is made with a blend of mineral oil & powder, so is creamy & easily blended into the skin, my preferred method of application is to draw & cover my eyelid with the pencil & use my ring finger to blend into the skin.
Here are some swatches of some random shadows to show the intensity of them when used with 'Milk'
Top - Plain shadow
Bottom - With Milk as a base

All of this in one little stick that costs just £5, pretty darn amazing I say.

Have you tried any of the NYX jumbo eye pencils?

  1. I use milk as an eye base from time to time-- I also like it for lining my water line but feel that it's too thick and tends to get clumped in my lower lashes sadly & even then, it doesn't seem to last very long! I also have the light purple shade that I love to use as a liner in the summer because it really brightens up the eye and gives it a pop of color!

  5. I love milk and black bean as well! While milk makes the colors pop, black bean makes the colors deeper and more intense (:

  10. I had tried these a few years ago and wasn't impressed, but recently picked up Milk again to give it a 2nd chance and it's like a totally different product - it's great!
