NYX Jumbo Pencil 604 Milk - Swatch, Review + Where to buy


Sorry dear for being away for so long. I was without my lappy and later on bit under the weather. Anyways here I am back with the review of the most popular of NYX Jumbo Pencil – Milk.



In case you have not heard about NYX Jumbo Pencil, then here is what the NYX website claims -
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.


Ingredients of NYX Jumbo Pencil : Bees Wax, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) wax,  Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) wax, Ceresin,  Microcrystalline Wax, Polyethylene, Octyldodeanol , Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Isostearyl Isostearate, Isononyl Isononanoate, Tocopheryl Acetate, B.H.A, Isopropylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Butylparaben, and Polyethylene Terephthalate.  
May Contain:  Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxide Red (CI 77491), Iron Oxide Yellow (CI 774992), Iron Oxide Black (CI 77499), FD&C Blue No.1 Aluminum Lake (CI 42090), FD&C Yellow No.5 Aluminum Lake (CI 19140), Chromium Oxide Green (CI 77288), Carmine (CI 75470), Ultramarine Blue (CI 77007), or Ferric Ferrocyanide (CI 77510).


Swatch of NYX Jumbo Pencil Milk – it’s a matte white color which is very smooth to apply and does not tug at all.

Why I got it? To use on my waterline to make my eyes bigger. But it failed as its very creamy so does not last longer on waterline. Now the creaminess is a blessing in disguise. Let see how –



Use of NYX Jumbo Pencil Milk  –

  1. As eyeliner? But is very creamy + not pointed. So, you can use it as an eyeliner but have to apply to using a eyeliner brush. But then how many times do you wear white eyeliner??
  2. On waterline to make eyes look big – But because of creaminess it does not last long here. Moreover, it might not even be recommended for waterline as this is what I deduced by reading the ingredients list.
  3. To highlight under the brow – Excellent job here. Just dab a bit under the brow and blend carefully. As this is very thick make sure you do not use too much.
  4. As a single eyeshadow – Works OK but then it creases in 2-3 hours.
  5. As eyeshadow base – Wonderful. This is the job its does in an amazing way. As it’s a matte white color, it can pop any eyeshadow color. In case you have complains against any eyeshadow that does not shows as vibrant as on the pan then use the color with this as base. Again make sure you do not use too much else you might get the feeling that someone is sitting on your lids and also it will crease faster. Best way to use NYX Milk is to use a concealer brush to pat on the entire eyelid so that you do not end up using too much and hence reducing the chances of creasing. Also, instead of being creased as when used a single eyeshadow, with the powder eyeshadow on top, it last looooong.


Where to Buy
I got mine from Medplusbeauty.com at Rs 361.25. I know I paid a huge price but this shade is bit hard to get and I did not have patience this time to wait for 2 weeks for international courier. Now its out of stock there but you can get other colors at 276.25/-. 
Stylecraze.com also have these in other colors at INR 319.
Cherryculture - $3.50 + Shipping
Porkdaisy.com for $3.75. After taxes and shipping to India $6.29
Joys Store in Ebay at US $2.99. But then if you need to buy more than 1, you can get nice combination prices.


And joke of the day - available at Homeshop18 at Price: Rs. 1144 with FREE Shipping. Are you kidding? With 1144 INR it can go for a world trip!!! :D And that too is out of stock *ROTFL*


So would like to have a glass (stick) of Milk?
