    The stick itself is soft and goes on with three or fours swipes...It smudges right away. Will be returning.

      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Jumbo Eye Pencil:

      I caved in and bought this in Milk after hearing so many good things about it on the internet. I have to admit it is a purchase I will make over again, as well as adding a few more colors to my kit.
      I use Milk as a base for when I want my eyeshadow colors to pop and stay true to color on the lid. It adhears the eyeshadow on like a good primer would and I get great color payoff!

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Jumbo Eye Pencil:

        I decided to give these a shot while they were 40% off... Sure glad I didn't pay full price. I bought Lavender, Cashmere, and Pure Gold. Each are really lovely colors and glide on easily. Unfortunately, there's nothing I can do to stop them from creasing . Using my Urban Decay shadow primer doesn't do a darn thing to help this product, whereas it works wonders with every other shadow I own. I tried finishing powder on top as well, thinking that might help. I'm so disappointed. I especially love the lavender color, but I can't even wear these shadows for a full hour before they're terribly creased. I'm only out $7 for the three, but still... bummer.

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Jumbo Eye Pencil:

        Honestly I'm in love with ALL of NYX's jumbo eye pencils. If you do use it as a base color you do need to put eye shadow over or it will fade or look greasy. All though sometimes the result vary like if your eyelid is dry it will definitely show because the color is very pigmented.

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Jumbo Eye Pencil:

          I bought this in 'Milk' and rather than using it as a primer (which if used as a primer, WILL crease!), use it after my Urban Decay shadow potion, use it as a white base for electrifying colors. It makes the colors bold and vivid, and can be used on the lower lash-line for a bright pop of white, if you're interested in that! I found that when the tip of the pencil begins to dull, it can easily be fixed by grabbing a microwave safe jar and popping it in for 30 seconds to a minute and being set out to cool. It's consistency doesn't change after heating, and it works like new! If used without a primer beforehand, it will crease on oily lids but with the primer, it's no issue. And while it might be haggling to some to have to depot it to get the rest of the product out, I actually prefer it in a pot. It doesn't smudge or budge, and the colors are brighter than ever with 'Milk'; I plan on buying other shades, too!

            I have been using the milk and black bean for a while love them as a base. The milk makes any eye shadow pop! The black bean works well as a base for a dark black smokey eye or to intensify the outer v on a smokey eye. I will be getting more color eventually. Highly recommend using milk on inner corner and brow highlight with a white shimmer on top like urban decays poleyster bride or verve it really makes the eye pop. Just don't recommend using it in the water line.

            i lived the Milk color it made my eyes pop but it made my eyes water like crazy and I looked like I was crying all the time. Also make my eyelids red and rashy. The top broke within two weeks and then it dried out. then I tried to sharpen it with big sharpener impossible to do! Its made with some weird thick plastic outer so you can't sharpen it! The product I bought to replace it is three times the cost but hopefully it will last longer! I bought the Stila eyebright.

            Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Jumbo Eye Pencil:

            I have this product in the shade Milk (white) and love it. It's great as a creamy base to make shadows pop, especially bright colored ones. It's also very bright and opaque in the waterline. It can crease a little bit throughout the day, but it's better than other cream products.

              Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Jumbo Eye Pencil:

              I liked the color, but I had to add tons of extra "insurance" like extra eye primer and extra eyeshadow on top to ensure that it didn't slip off my face or crease. Even then, it got really clumpy.
              I will not repurchase. Blending was also difficult because the colors would run off, not mix together.
