NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil 'Milk Lait' Review, Swatch & A Little Experiment!!

I ALWAYS prime my eyes before applying eyeshades because I feel wearing an eyeshadow base is good for various reasons. I like to wear one, because it works as a eye primer which stops the eye shadows from fading and creasing and it also helps your eyeshadow colour pop. So today, I’m going to review NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk, which has been raved by the whole blogsphere and is really popular as an eyeshadow base. Lets see if it works for me or not..
Product Description: A radiant eye liner that also doubles as an eye shadow. Made with a blend of mineral oil and powder, our creamy Jumbo Eye Pencils glide on effortlessly—no pulling, tugging or fading—and come in a rainbow of vivid hues. Some call her chubby. We say voluptuous. Available in 28 shades.
Packaging: NYX Jumbo Pencil is a sharp able chubby pencil which contains 5 grams of product.

My Views: 
 NYX Jumbo Pencil in milk is super smooth and creamy with very good pigmentation, It glides on effortlessly, without any tugging- so it's ideal for painting your entire eyelid with, It's best used as an eye makeup base when you want colors of your eyeshadow to pop also works great for loose pigments (i.e. mineral make up etc.)With it's creamy consistency, it can be used as an eye shadow. You can use it to highlight your brows.Using it on waterliner really open up your eyes and give the illusion of bigger eyes. It is also good to highlight the inner corners of your eyes.
My favorite thing to do with this product is to cover my lid with it as an eye shadow base. White is an excellent color to use because it just makes any color stand out without altering its texture or color too much.Colors, especially lighter ones, then show up much brighter and truer. 

Now comes the fun part! Lets see how well NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk works as an eyeshadow base..
On the leftmost part of the picture, I have swatched three shades of eyeshadows without any eyeshadow base / primer under them. Then there are swatches of Milk on itself and in the next picture I’ve applied the same eyeshadows using NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk as base and look at the difference guys, See how much more vibrant the colors become? The one with NYX jumbo pencil are so much pigmented and vibrant.I'm really impressed! NYX Jumbo Pencil definitely makes a great eyeshadow base! It's a MUST-HAVE!

     The only downside of this pencil is sharpening. It’s difficult to find a sharpener that actually fits the size of this jumbo pencil. It would be great if NYX attach a sharpener at the cap of the pencil.

My Recommendation:I LOVE IT! It's a multipurpose product that I would definitely recommend it for the price.

Price & Availability: I ordered mine through the Facebook page Shopaholics in 775/- PKR. It's also available at Just4girls.pk.

Rating: 4.75 / 5

 That’s all for now ladies. I hope you enjoyed this post. Feel free to share your comments about this product if you have tried it already. And for those who haven't, I highly suggest you add this to your make up collection.

Until my next review,
