This is a chunky pencil that requires routine sharpening. It has a soft tip that will smush down if you apply more than a light pressure, which doesn’t make it any more appealing. Otherwise, this has a creamy texture and smooth application that imparts rich color, most of which have a shimmer finish that borders on metallic. The creaminess sets to a slightly moist finish that won’t resist creasing, making these not preferred to NYX’s powder eyeshadows.

This small Los Angeles–based makeup line was founded in 1999 by a woman named Toni Ko. The company's Web site is vague about Ko's background, merely stating that she developed an interest in cosmetics as a teenager (you know, just like about 99.9% of teenage women) and wanted to create her own line of cosmetics. Ko's goal was to produce high-quality products at affordable prices, and that's the draw of NYX (pronounced "nicks") Cosmetics. We are pleased to report that, for the most part, Ko succeeded in her childhood dream.

It is important to note that this line offers a full selection of makeup products, from foundations to lip gloss. However, the only place to access everything NYX Cosmetics has to offer is their Web site. The Ulta chain is the largest distributor of NYX Cosmetics products in the United States, but they carry a smaller selection of NYX products. The good news is that most of the few NYX products Ulta stocks are impressive, especially the powder eyeshadows, which compete evenly with eyeshadows that cost a lot more.

NYX Cosmetics customer service number is (866) 699-1004 or you can visit www.nyxcosmetics.com.

    Milk is the BEST!
    • I agree with the previous review that Milk has changed my life. Apply it to your lid and smooth it over evenly. Apply even the cheapest eye shadow and the color will POP and stay on all day! I haven't had issues with even top of line shadows from Estee Lauder creasing but with Milk this DOES NOT HAPPEN. Anyone who wears eye shadow should try this product in Milk. IS VERY NIIIICE <----- in a BORAT VOICE!

    Gotta have milk
    • After seeing just about everyone on YouTube who does an eyeshadow tutorial use this pencil in the color milk as a base for their shadow I had to get one and try it and WOW. Not only does it make your eyeshadow colors vivid and true, it keeps them on and crease free if you have a primer on as well. Love the milk version of this pencil and have several of the other colors as well and like them too. They are colorful and blend well. They are a must have, especially milk as a base for your powders.
