NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

Can you believe I didn't own this until just a couple of days ago? I got NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Purple and Slate a long time ago, but I didn't think I would need a white one as well at the time. I read a lot of posts about this products on the blogsphere lately and that's why I got it.

NYX Jumbo Eye pencils are very soft and pigmented (at least the ones I have). Milk is no exception. Just look at it on my skin. It makes a perfect base for my eye make up.

When you have eyes like me that are closer together, you have to keep the inner corners of the eyes bright. That way they'll look farther apart. That's a nice trick, worth of remembering. ;)
This is a make up look I created using NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk in the inner corner of my eye. It made the bright eyeshadow stick to the skin better and look even brighter.

Products used for this look:
* Urban Decay Primer Potion
* NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk (inner corner and the line in the outer corner)
* Essence Eyeshadow in Mystic Lemon (inner corner)
* Pure Luxe Mineral Eyeshadow in Racy
* Essence Liquid Eyeliner (black)
* Essence Black Mania mascara
* Essence Brow & Lash Gel Mascara
* 88 Matte Eyeshadow Palette (taupe for brows, black for waterline)

I love this pencil, as I expected I would. It's soft, pigmented and very useful. I got my pencil on Ebay for approximately $5.00.

Tell me: do you own any NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils? If so, which shades are they in? I think I'll need to get a few more shades soon and I'm open to suggestions. 

Thanks for looking!


  1. I love the NYX pencils also, i've only got 3 at the moment but i've been looking at a few more.

    I've got mine in Milk, Black Bean and Pots & Pans, all very pigmented :) x

  2. Love 'Milk'! It's so prefect for making bright eyeshadows stand out. I'm after 'Oyster' (pearly, light pink) and 'Cottage Cheese' (pearly off white) next!

  3. I want thi pecil so baldy for a year I guess. But NYX don't ship to Europe so I don't have it. I've never used Ebay. Don't know why I don't like it. But thanks to "Milk" I'll probably try it, cause I need this pencil! Can you tell me the name of the seller You were buying from? Thank You so much!

    PS: I also want shade called Levander! <3

  4. I've got this jumbo pencil and I love it too.
    Awesome look! Your eyes are gorgeous.

  5. @Lou: I use Ebay to buy things all the time. I've never had a bad experience with it. I bought Milk from ''angelsbeautybag''.

    @Gabriela: Thanks!

  6. I've been meaning to get this pencil too.
    Now, I just use a flesh-toned cream shadow and primer under my powder shadow, but a white one would really make the color pop.

  7. A lahko vprašam koliko je bila poštnina v Slovenijo? Ker mene tudi mika, da si nabavim ta slaven Milk pa nočem celega premoženja dat za poštnino :D

  8. Okay, I'm bidding on it, I absolutely NEED it! :)

  9. @Urška: Seveda. Skupaj s poštnino pride okoli 4€. Odvisno od tečaja, ampak tam nekje je cena no...

  10. I have Milk and I love what it does for eyeshadows :)

  11. Great you got yourself one, it's my staple everyday base!

  12. To pa moram tudi jaz nabavit... Pa dobro drži ali gredo senčila v gubo? Si zadovoljna? Aja, čudovit MU, kot vedno... :)

    P.S. imaš nagrado na mojem blogu

  13. I have four, I believe they are Lime, Oyster, Slate and one brownish... Latte? Iced Latte? Iced coffee? xD I love the idea, but let me tell you they do NOT last on me. I have rather oily skin especially on my eyelids. Not even a good primer can keep 'em stuck. :(

  14. @Maja: Spodaj vedno uporabim primer, ki poskrbi, da je obstojnost daljša. Pri takih podlagah pa je vedno tombola (vsaj pri meni). Včasih zdrži brez posebnosti, včasih pa gre malo (ampak res malo) v gubo. Zadovoljna sem izjemno, pa še uporabljala ga bom večinoma samo v notranjem kotičku očesa, kjer ne more iti v gubo. ;)

    @Feline: I use a little amount of it and pat eyeshadow on. It usually lasts for long enough.

  15. How funny! I've seen this being used everywhere now too! I got Strawberry Milk, Iced Mocha, and Cottage Cheese (because Milk wasn't available). Cottage Cheese looked similar until I actually put it on my eyes. It's more shimmery than Milk. I couldn't find Milk anywhere so I had to order it off Amazon (sold by NYX). Trusty Amazon has everything!

  16. I've read on many blogs & YouTube about people using Milk. Do you use an eye shadow base before using this? Your makeup looks gorgeous.

  17. Thank You :) I think my first experience with Ebay have to wait. I found a seller here in Czech Republic and it costs about 8€ with shipping ;) I'm soo curious about when it will arrive!
