Can I be honest with you for a minute? Somewhere along the way NYX has lost my attention. I think something happened when it went from being a budget friendly independently owned brand (see my interview with founder Toni Ko here) to part of the L’Oreal family and not quite as budget friendly anymore. I just don’t keep up on the latest and greatest anymore, but I’ll forever keep NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk near and dear to my heart.
Milk is one of many jumbo pencils from NYX and yet I find myself continually stuck on this particular shade. This pure white works so well as an eyeshadow primer and really helps take your eyeshadow application to the next level.
It’s versatile and works with any skin tone – really. What I truly love about NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk is that it doesn’t pull a slip and slide act on my oily eyelids.
Besides eyeshadow, I used it in this Halloween tutorial when I transformed into a Snapchat filter. I used Milk as a primer for the eyeshadow I blended all over my face.
If you’re not into jumbo pencils and want something more convenient, you can also depot the pencils into a small plastic jar- there are a few ways you can do it, and this technique using a hairdryer is super easy.
What are your favorites from NYX?
