I have found such a staple product in NYX’s Milk jumbo pencil. I mean…it’s amazing, y’all! I used it in a FOTD Friday and since then I’ve been experimenting with it. It works beautifully under mattes and chromes. It’s just…what is that Anita Baker song? “The Best Thing Yet”? Oh yeah, girl…it really is all that and then some.
Hit the jump to see what I’m talkin’ about.
Now don’t laugh at the condition of my pencil. I can’t find the top to save my life. The good news is that it hasn’t dried out yet. That’s 12 out of 10 points for NYX! For $4.00, you get this creamy but not too creamy pencil that can be used as a base or eye shadow color all on its own.
My lids are insanely oily so I usually have to wear this on top of Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance eye shadow primer. When I first swatched it, I was shocked.
It is REALLY white. I would have never thought that shadows over this white WHITE could compliment me. Wrong! Watch this!
With gentle strokes, I drew all over my eye lid from the lower lash line to the brow.
Would y’all still love me if I walked out of the house like that? HA! I’m jivin’. What comes next is blending with my fingers. Remember to be careful on the eyelids. Too much tugging can lead to crows feet overnight. Seriously.
Not blending enough can leave harsh white lines but blending too much can wipe off the entire application. A few seconds later and viola!
I like how the pencil is creamy enough with the gentle swipe of my finger but a few seconds later, it doesn’t budge. Perfect! I grabbed my 88 eye shadow palette and did a quick blue eye.
Insane how vibrant that is because of the Milk. I approve. And I love it. And I want more of these pencils. NYX has a bunch of them…
Clumps readers have told me to snag Black Bean and French Fries (mouth waters). I actually want ALL of them.
Have you used NYX’s jumbo pencils? Love ‘em? Hate ‘em? Has anyone tried that Hot Pink? It looks gorgeous!
