I have been hearing for weeks on instagram how NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in 604 Milk can really make an eye look, look outstanding. With the way these girls rave about it you would think it slices and dices too (I have been watching too many infomercials, don't you judge me!) So wanting to stay in the loop and see what all the hoopla is about, i bought one.
My impressions with NYX; a brief history:
When i first began buying NYX i was 15 (just to put that into perspective it was the year 2000), it was at a discount beauty supply store, i am pretty sure most of it was discontinued items, and it was really lacking in quality, but hey it fit my $10 dollar makeup budget. Over the years NYX has improved by leaps and bounds; their matte lipstick collection is phenomenal! So when i opened the white box, and saw a black lace bag that contained my pencil like it was a precious item, the details impressed me so much more than the dingy discount cosmetic store of the past!

This pencil is divine. It applies so smoothly, so opaque, can be blended out, and when eye shadow is applied over it, it delivers a burst of color. This is every girls secret weapon to flawless eye makeup.

Applied just to the lid before the crease, blended out a little into the crease, as a primer, can make any eyeshadow look more dramatic and make blending a little easier.
This can be used over lips, to blank them out so that lighter colors can be applied. It will prevent the redness of the lips from changing the color.
This can be used as a white lipstick.
This can be used to create your own lipstick shade- apply all over lips. Take a pigment (suitable for lips, some pigments advise against lip use, so check your product), brush over your lips. For a matte color leave as is, for a bit of gloss apply a clear gloss using a brush applicator, not a sponge.
This can be used under the eye to help lighten dark circles and blending in with cover up, primer, or concealer.
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil comes in a variety of shades, for this and other products please check out the NYX website here!
