NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Milk Review & Swatches
Would you like a little NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk with your eyeshadows and cookies?
This little gem has been raved the makeup blog over but I’ve never indulged personally until recently. Makeup junkies rave it for its ability to enhance the shade of shadows, lock shadows in place while acting as a primer, and just generally act as a perfect base for loose pigments and minerals.
All true…all true!
I typically avoid using shadesticks or cream eyeshadows under my eyeshadows since I prefer using a lighter primer (my most recent love is Make Up For Ever Eye Prime) to hold my shadows in place.
But sometimes you need to bring out the big guns when you’re working with loose pigments or mineral eyeshadow. That’s while NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk makes for a great little product to have in your beauty arsenal.
This is a creamy, easy to apply and blend shadow stick in a bright, stark shade of white. Only a few skin tones will actually be able to use it as an eyeshadow so don’t buy it for that reason alone or avoid it because of how very bright white it is.
The formula not only enhances and creates beautifully vibrant shadow finishes when worn under your favorite shades but it also acts as a beautiful base that helps loose shadows, glitters, and pigments to adhere to lids.
I find the texture of the shadow very creamy and blends easily without tugging or dryness. I can’t honestly wear it alone as an eyeshadow since it goes a little mod on me (Twiggy anyone?) but certain lighter tones might find it’s ideal for brightening up the eye area for a nude, natural look with a good bit of dramatic liner to play off it.
For me, it’s a perfect base for all my loose products. If you find your shades fade or aren’t as vibrant on your eye as they are in the pan this is a beautiful base to get a rich color payoff on lids. Plus dealing with fall out is the pits and this minimizes it in a major way!
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk is as essential as any eyeshadow primer I use daily…! A must have in my opinion. Plus did I mention it’s under five bucks? Cheap thrill!
Just hates I waited this long to discover it.
