French Fries is awesome!!! These are great for bases, or just to spice up an eye look. I love the pigmentation and the idea. I know this is not significant, but the names are really ugly!! Kind of a weird thing to notice, but its just something that popped into my head. One bad thing is that they do not last the whole day without a primer. Cream shadows are supposed to remove that step, which this one does not. I still love this product, and for the price, purchasing this item is a definite must!
Smokey eyes made easier.
At first I was like, how the heck am I going to line my eye with this thing.. it's huge!! but then I discovered that, while it IS super black and creamy, it is much more functional to use when creating a smokey eye than merely trying to make a neat line. It's so pigmented and is very easily blended. There's so much product too! You could do raccoon eyes for daaaaays- I'm sure a scene kid would give her left arm for one of these things. I can't wait to try out the other colors!
I love love love this product. I either use it in the corners of my eye (teardrop) and then put a white or shimmer powder on top... or I use it as a base on my eyelids to put other colors on top to make the pigments POP. I have only purchased Milk so far... but I do think that I will be trying out some other colors.
NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencils ROCK! I love the one I have in cottage cheese. I use it as a highlight underneath the brow bone and in the inner corner of the eye. It stays great and the pigmentation is just AWESOME! love it!
I have experienced creasing when using these, even with shadow on top to set it. I might have used too much, so that's something I am going to have to play around with. WARNING: I have found that leaving these babies in your purse in the summer is a bad idea. Heat will melt them, so keep them in a cool place. Also, I find that if they do wind up melting, you can melt the product into a little pot.
never leave home without it
I love all my jumbo pencils! I use milk & gold the most. Always as a Eyeshadow Base on top of my eyeshadow primer. It's the best! Went to Kauai a while back & it rained like crazy, yet my eyeshadow was intact!!! Love it!!!
I use this pencil in Milk almost every day. It's great for an inner corner highlight and as a base to make colors pop. I've used the other colors too as bases and they work well. I have no complaints!

I like this pencil as a base as well as normal wear on a day that I do not want to apply to much make up. Love using it on my eyebrow.
