Works amazing as an eyeshadow base. It makes the colors pop in such a beautiful way, I really recommend it.
NYX is an affordable makeup brand and you can pretty much find its products in any drugstore (or at least here in Mexico)
I loooove jumbo sticks like these. I have 3 shades so far and I intend to buy them all haha! The pigment is awesome, they set to a creamy looking finish but last very very long. It's so easy to grab the black and blend it into a 5 min smokey eye!
I WILL HAVE EVERY SHADE
Using these under any color eyeshadow makes such a difference. You would not believe how many times I was going for a color that i just didn't have in my eyeshadow palettes and O sweet darling, the right color jumbo pencil will take a color eyeshadow and turn it into something spectacular when used as a base! Must haves! Yes!
Excellent under bright shadows
This pencil works wonderfully under bright shadows to make the colors really stand out and remain more true. The best part is, unlike many white pencils like this, this is not a frosted or sparkly shade but almost matte.
I do recommend using a primer under this as it can crease without one.
I love the jumbo eye pencils especially milk. They are creamy and very easy to work with. I love using them as a base for really bright shadows, they make the color stick on and not budge at all. But beware they crease, badly without a primer. Just be sure to use a primer under them and you're good to go! Awesome product NYX! :)
Beautiful pigmentation, but still susceptible to creasing
I have these in Yogurt, Cashmere, Pots & Pans, Milk, Black Bean, and Cottage Cheese. All of them are beautifully pigmented, except Cashmere and Pots & Pans, which come up a bit sheer.
I've seen gurus use these as an eyeshadow primer, which I tried before, but it is NOT a good idea for oily lids. Within a few minutes, all of my eye makeup creased. So I used an eye primer under the jumbo pencils, and it also creased within in hour.
All in all, these are great for people with non-super oily lids, unlike mine.
I love these! I own almost every color and use them as bases for my eyeshadows to make my shadows really stick and pop! I love how I can change the colors of my eyeshadows by using different colored Jumbo Pencils underneath-- Milk makes my colors bold and bright, Black Bean makes them sultry and smokey, etc. I also use them when doing costume makeup--Pots and Pans made an excellent silver base for my Terminator look! The only cons I have for these are that they will crease significantly if you don't use a primer underneath. Other than that, they last all day and make your eyeshadows really stand out!
A quick tip: Ulta sells a sharpener that works excellently for them.
