Absolutely love these eye pencils! Great array of colours and hues. I have Milk,Yogurt, Gold and Rust. Every time I go into the Nyx store I end up w/ another color hehe... My go to is the colour Yogurt, such a versatile colour reminds me of an opal-pearl oyster shell (interior) which has a lovely silver sheen. Works well as an inner corner highlighter, I often use it on my waterline as well as a liner and also as an overall shadow. Milk is my least used, I find it too stark of a white, but it's great for Halloween kits, really well pigmented. Rust I love, a deep red burgundy colour wth red sheen, sometimes I'll do my eyelids in red burgundy tones (ie UD: Relish, Mac: Cranberry or my fav Star Violet also by Mac) and line with this,..I love this look when I wear blacksuch a cool and confident look, pulls the amber out of my brown eyes, makes them pop!. I have also used Rust as an overall shadow too. Gold (yellow toneno orange) is a great colour for highlighting the inner corner of the eye and wears well against brown eye makeupgreat statement colour. The formula on these pencils are of a soft melding crayon,certainly not waxy, full on pigment, lasts all day.Can't beat the price, looking forward to purchasing many more of these Jumbo Pencils.
I have the shades Black Bean, Dark Brown and Rust. I love these pencils, they are easy to apply and super pigmented.
Seems these are a "hit or miss" for a lot of women. Well I think it's all in the application. They're definitely great as a "base" for your powder shadows. They intensify the shades. Also need to use a primer before application of these pencils (come on, work with them a littleÃƒÂ°Ã‚Å¸Ã‚Â¤Ã‚Â·ÃƒÂ°Ã‚Å¸Ã‚ÂÃ‚Â¼ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚ÂÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â„¢Ã‚â‚¬ÃƒÂ¯Ã‚Â¸Ã‚Â.) A little dusting of setting powder/spray and you're done. Other that, I don't have any issues with these. Its like any other brand no matter what the price sometimes you have to work a little harder to get that "snatch"ÃƒÂ°Ã‚Å¸Ã‚ËœÃ‚Ëœ
Would never use these on their own, but they are absolutely amazing bases. Even your most chalky useless eye shadow will show up if you put Milk on first. I have a cheap palette off eBay with very unpigmented, powdery, hard to work with shadows, and I can make almost all of them beautiful if I layer them on top of the Milk pencil. It's amazing and a staple in my makeup collection. Also great for highlighting under my brow bone.
Cheap! And often "you get what you pay for" a waxy-creamy feel with decent staying power. Milk and Yogurt are very useful as a base I put powder shadows over top. Also inexpensive enough that my 12 year old can buy a bunch to "play" with.
