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 I like this pencil for...
I like this pencil for the product. I have the color "Milk" and I love it as a highlight on my browbone and in the corners of my eyes. I am VERY fair and this pencil is so white I need to use a light hand.
It's also very creamy which can be good and bad - the good being that it glides onto your skin, the not so good being that it's so creamy I wouldn't recommend wearing these on the eyelid without a primer underneath if you have oily lids because it's so soft and creamy that it does crease.
Now the WORST thing: the packaging. I hate that there's plastic just under the actual product so that you can't sharpen the pencil! Some of these reviews are saying that there IS product in the shaft but why put it there unless you can get to it? NOT impressed with that at all.
So, product, good. Packaging, bad.

i have no idea why the heck this product has a lot of good reviews for the waterline. The only good thing I find about it is that the color is super vibrant, but it smudges when I apply it to my bottom waterline to my top waterline. And when I first apply it, THE PRODUCT GETS IN MY EYE. I can see white little specks on my eyeball. Definitely a bad sign. Also hated how big the tip is, I thought I wouldnt mind but the product gets on my lower lashes which is a hassle to remove AND it looks super chalky!! It stays on my waterline a decent amount of time but the color is all chalky from smudging everywhere
I will not buy this product again

This is not a stick of make up the make up you actually see is the only make up you get. It doesn't twist up or sharpen down. I've gotten more in the form of a free sample. Too bad, I really like the colors they offer
I love this eyeliner!
Kate from Charlotte,NC
I am so in love with this eyeliner! I work retail and sometimes it gets so hot, but this eyeliner stays in place no matter how hot it gets! I bought it in Rust and its lovely.
Just a greasy mess
Gray from San Diego, CA
I bought three NYX products in my last purchase. The first two were amazing; I was so impressed. I found this eyeliner very disappointing. It glides on easily, yet it s difficult to apply with any accuracy. The color is full, and minutes after application, it is gone.
Disappointed, maybe purchase in store

Ordered online and wonder if it's old product.
Don't waste your money!

I used this once and it was so messy on my eyelids that I wiped it off midday and replaced with a powder!!
Nubby from Monroe, LA
I really wondered if this product would work for me and hold up during the day so I don't have to reapply it every five minutes...and I used it the first time and I loved how it went on smooth, didn't pull my bottom eye area like some do, held up most of the day. I will buy more colors, but this one under the water line of my eyes make them look a lot more awake....seriously it works!
Want in every color!

Banana from California
this product is great for waterline which is what I use it for.. I have milk shade and the black one.. I love these.. they last 8 plus hours and do not smear..
Creamy & long lasting.
Ocean gurl from St Louis, MO
I really like this "chubby" pencil for applying shadow to my eyelids. I can use it every day & put it exactly where I want. It lasts a long time staying on until I take it off. It's very easy to use. I only wish it was available in more color choices.
great for ur waterline

Thin enough to be a liner but big enough to cover entire lid. Highly blendable and highly pigmented.
Bex from NY
After I figured out that you really can just sharpen the entire pencil I found it easy to use. I apply to my water line and above my lash line and blend. I usually have to clean up with a q-tip after I apply because it does smear easily. Once the liner sets it is great and doesn't move and lasts all day. I have used other shadow liner pencils and find them sticky, and hard to blend. This pencil does not have either of those issues.
I am recently slightly disabled. This product is amazing.

I'm using this daily
I will buy more colors!
Laura from Long branch Nj
I just tried these eyeshadow sticks and loved them instantly... no flakes, easy to apply and blend.
Can someone tell me how to raise the stick itself.. I tried to twist bottom and twist no luck! Will stop in to my local Ulta!
Anyway great product.
Tkaye from Richmond VA
Stepped up my eye makeup game since wearing mask takes away lip action. This liner is easy to use & size feels good in your hand. Consistent coverage.
Natalie from Houston, Texas
I use it as an eyeliner and in the inner corner of my eye to brighten my eyes up!! Works great, has a thicker tip, and is buildable
Desirae A. from Fort Worth, TX
I was a little nervous at how well this would work but oh my goodness.. this stuff is insanely white. I saw another review that said it wasn't.. Mine definitely was. It also stayed put on my water line. These are cheap so why not give em a try?
Kelli from New York
The white is an amazing eyeshadow base for vibrant colors on dark skin. Have not tried the other colors as an eyeshadow.
Jac from Florida
This is the best white eyeliner on the market. You need just one swipe for full opacity on the waterline and it lasts all day. It also works amazingly as an eyeshadow base or blended with some lipsticks for an ombré or to lighten them. It's very versatile. Also, YES IT DOES SHARPEN, you just need a jumbo sharpener.
Would purchase again
GDM from Florida
Steady hand to use cause it is a thick white pencil
Not as great as it seems
daffodilewhe from Treasure Valley Idaho
First, the product is not as pigmented as the pictures show. I have the white and it is VERY pale. It most definitely doesn't last all day. I did white eyeliner with this, and it faded in 20 minutes. Next, the tip is thick, and not ideal because it makes it hard to do anything precise. Color gets onto the crayon easily, and the crayon itself is easily wasted. This is not great, and really disappointed because I usually like NYX's products.
Not very much product
PPP from Charlotte, NC
I initially loved this eyeshadow - easy to apply and the colors are nice. But, I was sure that I would get more of this product than the small tip that is exposed. I probably apply eyeshadow once or twice a week at most (the pandemic) and this lasted me maybe 6 weeks - so not many uses. I keep reading the stock answer from Ulta that you can sharpen it - that is hogwash because the amount you get isn't enough to sharpen. I really thought more product would come out as you twisted the base, but not true. So although the price is nice, just beware that you aren't getting much for your money.

I received one of these as a free gift. It slides all over you eyelids and smears.
