Make-up Must Have - NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk || Dolled Up Daily Blog

Hey guys! Thanks for all your sweet comments on my last post, makes me smile every time. Glad I could share some picture of my special day with you guys.

Today I'm here to share with you one of the beauty items I always have in my makeup bag and use regularly. Has been a favorite of mine for years now so thought it was about time I share it with you.

This product is the NYX brand Jumbo Eye Pencil in the color Milk, a matte white color. It's a very versatile product. I love it because it is such a bright white color, stays on all day, and can be used for a variety of things. Can be blended out to add as much or little color as you'd like. So happy I found this product. Even better, it retails for only about $4.50! Definitely worth it in my opinion, just make sure you have a jumbo pencil sharpener.

Here is the pencil and above is the pencil blended out. My favorite way to blend it is just with my ring finger. Simple, fast, and most effective!

Here's a list of my favorite ways to use the pencil:

Eyeshadow - Product is made for your eyes, simply can be used as an eye shadow

Under Brow Highlight - Looks great as a under eye highlight when you're looking for a bright matte option when blended out, can also be used as a brow highlight base if you want to add shimmer on top.

White eyeliner - Use on the waterline to brighten your eyes and make them appear bigger, giving you that "doll eye" look a lot of people love.

Brighten inner corners - Apply to inner corners of eyes and blend out to make your eyes appear big and wide and add dimension. I do this almost daily and get compliments on it all the time!

Eyeshadow base - One of my favorite things about this pencil is how it is sticky and stays on all day, makes a great base for your eyeshadows

Lighten Lipsticks - Mix under or on top of lipsticks to brighten them up, creating a virtually new color!

I'm sure there are more ways to use it, let me know if you use this in additional ways!

I have more colors of these pencils, but I've only ever went through the milk pencil (with a handful of repurchases) though there is a great color selection. My second favorite would have to be strawberry milk which is a lightly shimmered light pink color which looks nice with my blue eyes and blonde hair.

Have you guys tried this pencil? How would you use it?
