I've missed you guys so much!
I apologize for the lack of bloggin I've been job hunting once again! Omg it feels like never ending I've been looking for a job for 2 months now but I do believe that God has a plan for everything so I will be paitent and wait to see what doors open up for me ;0)
Okay so on to the good stuff! Everyone and there momma knows what "milk" means and no Im not talking about the milk you drink! Lol Im talking about NYX Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil in Milk. Im am hooked on these eyeshdow pencils. I first learned about them from youtube. I saw so, so, so many makeup grur using something called a milk pencil and I was curious to find out what it was.
NYX Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencils are creamy eyeshadow pencils that are used for Bases under your eyeshadow. They are also used as Bases under pigments and glitter too. If your unfimilar what a base is I have a previous post on Bases (Click here to see that post). They are also used to make your eyeshadow pop for instance if you using a Purple eyeshadow it will make your Purple more vibrant and bright.
NYX states that they do not crease but I have to be honest they do crease, so you have to use a Primer underneath them and make sure you blend them out really good. They are really creamy and can get messy when you apply them. Some people like to use there fingers to apply and others like to use a concealer brush.
