Most Helpful Positive Review I'm here to save the day
These pencils are amazing, but I have found that the best way to use them is to pot them and apply with a brush. I found that after a while the product gets low and because they can only be sharpened so much, you tend to lose a lot of product. About a min in the microwave liquidfies it. After it cools it is just as creamy as it was in the tube and you have an entire 5mg jar full of product to use!
Most Helpful Critical Review Will not sharpen, waste of money
I have bought three of these thinking each one was defective because once the tip wore down, I was unable to sharpen it because of the heavy plastic. I even have the NYX sharpener and still won't even come close to sharpening it, I have tried everything to get them to sharpen. They are all completely unusable with 80 of the pencil still left. Although I love the milk color, I will not waste my money on even one more of these and will be looking for a similar product in a different brand.

A great little eye pencil! I've been using these eye pencils from NYX for a while, & I can say that I love them! However, I highly recommend that you use a quality eyeshadow primer of your choice, as the one downside of these pencils is that they have a tendency to crease, especially in hot and humid conditions. They are highly pigmented and blend out well. I have nearly every colour, as I use mine nearly every day. They usually need to be touched up once a day, or twice if they need to stay in place longer than ten hours. Be sure to use a quality setting spray of your choice for best results.
Love these pencils, great base or easy look!
Mags from OREGON
love these for base color or fast look in the morning. I have oilier skin so a little primer is great.
Love it. Works well!

Stays on. Blends well. Highlights dark areas.
EXCELLENT pigment & DOES SHARPEN!!
Opal0778 from CT
I've been using the white Milk "crayon" for yrs. I❤2put my reg.eye base down(either P. Louise/Mac pot or shape tape) then the MILK over it. Sometimes instead of brush ill use my finger & smear or dot it lightly up toward crease&then my corner(tear duct) &depending on my mood I may just throw a little mauve/pink (or whatever color im in mood for that day)&blend it out but NOT where white is. For this I do like a swooping motion so when im done it still looks white yet it's now taken on a pearlescent sheen of the color I was using...Its so fast&easy it always looks very nice & I always get compliments when wearing it like this everytime. You can also use the white as a base place whatever color u plan 2use on top of it & it makes the pigment stand out more.
IDK for the life of me WHY PEOPLE ARE SAYING THEY DO NOT SHARPEN!!! I have one that is literally a stub. As long as the paper if off, you have the larger holed sharpener all you gotta do is twist & they sharpen like a champ. There is tons of product there. Unless they changed the product over nite which I can't see happening. I feel bad for A LOT of people who threw away perfectly good product.
I would recommend this product even if it didn't sharpen (which it does) bcuz come on where else ru going 2find that pigmented of a product 4 THIS PRICE? HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Not the best.
Natalie M. from California
I read good reviews on this products but it's so slimy and not really good for everyday use or for long wear. I wanted it to be amazing so bad but it really let me down!! :(( I guess you can use it as a eye shimmer but don't expect to last long..

It's a pretty color but it creases a lot on the eyes
Nikki9123 from Texas
I LOVE these eye pencils. I've been using them for close to 5 years now and so have my mom and sister. My sister gave a couple to me a few Christmases ago and the rest is history. They go on so easily and the color/pigment is beautiful. The price is beautiful too, of course! I have tried cashmere, lavender, pure gold, milk, strawberry milk, purple velvet, cobalt and many more over the years and have yet to be disappointed by a single color. I have read that they work great as eyeliners and highlighters but I have only used as eyeshadow. Don't know why it never occurred to me to try as a liner or highlighter all this time but I'll definitely be giving it a try now! If you're on the fence about trying these- don't be! They CAN sharpen and they can last a long time if you put a little space between uses. And even if they run out, you can't beat the price, it won't cost an arm and a leg every time you need a replacement.

Perfect for a little touch of highlight on the inner corner of my eyelids. Not a fan of the color name 'Cottage Cheese'.
Formula doesn't set
Ashley from Collierville, TN
I bought iced mocha to use as a cream eyeshadow. Pros- good pigment and a pretty color that applied easily. Cons- the formula never sets so two hours into wearing it had faded and creased even though I have dry eyelids and used the Urban Decay Primer potion on my lids. And so the hunt for a cream shadow stick that's cheaper than Laura Mercier or Bobbi Brown continues!

I've been using the jumbo pencils in milk and black bean for a long time now, they still work great.
Grace from NC
I absolutely love this! I am a woc and most eyeshadows aren't pigmented enough to give me the pop that I want. This is an easy fix. The only downside is that after awhile you can see where it separates, but I do have oily eyelids so that could just be me lol
I love it
Shoffy from Florida
I buy this and I love it easy to apply is perfect pigment
Smooth and cheap
Casey from Lewes, DE
Great price and the product is great! It was a win/win for me! So I got 3 of them. I mean really they have great pigment and the price is so good !! I will get them in more colors very soon because again, you can not beat the price!
Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil is a fantastic find!
Carlee from CO
Nyx provides a professional product with great colors at a price making it possible to buy all of them! This Jumbo Eye Pencil can be a base, a liner or a highlighter. I have blue/green eyes and have purchased two colors so far, Purple Velvet (Rockies fans...this is a must!) and Cashmere (a gold). I use both as a liner, the Cashmere going from the middle of my eyes to the inside on both the upper and lower iid. Wow! Does this open my eyes up!
Sharpeners. They exist.
missage from mi
I absolutely love iced mocha, makes a beautiful base for eyeshadow and I use it on my lower lash line (not my waterline) to make my eyes brighter and it works great! I read so many reviews, where people are complaining about it being a waste of money, and there's so little product, saying the packaging is flawed and won't twist up.........They. Sharpen. Like-

I tried to do that lil eye thingy from Ariana Grande x Lady Gaga's Rain on me video LOL. This is not that

Way to greasy and gets in creases.
White eye pencil

The white has full pigment. Very creamy and applies very smooth. Definitely recommend
Great for eyeliner
rpauley8892 from Denver, CO
I purchased the Rust color after having owned and used two other colors. This is a really nice color to use as eyeliner, as it stays in place. I have also used it as eyeshadow, which looks nice, but it's not the easiest to blend. My main qualm is that there is so little product in there, but the actual product works really well.
Love This Colour!
Attila the Shopper from Erlanger, Kentucky
This purple is a gorgeous colour! But, these don't sharpen, and they don't twist up ; that's what I mean by they don't last long. I'm removing one star due to that. They are still a fun, inexpensive, eye crayon. They have awesome pigment, too. I use these as an eye shadow and eye liner.
A Fun Cobalt Blue Crayon!
Attila the Shopper from Erlanger, Kentucky
These are fun crayons, they come in a variety of colours, there easy to use and blend, but you can't sharpen them ,and there's not a ton of product in the pen. If you use this every day, it should last you about a month. Still fun to use, though. Just keep these things in mind.

This creamy eye liner pencil glides on effortlessly no pulling, tugging or fading. Apply it as an eyeshadow, highlighter,
Rach1029 from Ca
I got this in the rust color and it is beautiful!! Shimmery and rich color. Great for smudging under eyes and as a upper lash liner. I paired it with a gold liner on my waterline and it really made my brown eyes pop. Definitely a universally flattering shade for all eyes colors!! Goes on smooth and creamy, does not skip or tag. I've come back to look for another fun shade to try, and can't beat that price!!!
