Where do I begin? Before I purchased this I had previously been using the whole “white base” concept, but with another more expensive pencil that didn’t quite cut it. When I discovered this pencil, I swore I would never go back. There are so many amazing uses for this pencil that really do take your makeup to the next level. I use this over my UDPP when I use any bright shadows (specifically my Sugarpill eyeshadows) to add that extra oomph of vibrancy. You can blend it, or cake it on- either way this pencil just simply works.
Can be used for a variety of things
Can be blended out softly
Very well priced
The lid can be cracked or broken easily
Make sure to leave the lid on or it will dry out!
Useful as both an eye shadow base and highlighter for under the brow bone.
— Decent primer; eye shadows applied over it pop with color
— Has multiple uses
— Not the easiest to apply; you can’t just apply it straight from the pencil without doing some work to fix it up
— Difficult to sharpen and you lose product when you do.
— Gets very waxy in the heat.
I love this base, it makes the colors that I wear pop so much more. The only, only, only issue I have is with ONE tube of the milk that I have that seems like it melted or something (which is weird as it was in a cool place) and applied on my eyes weird, and creased after. The other three or four tubes I have are fine, so I”m thinking it was just this one tube. May happen when the product is expired or maybe if it was in a warm place once, if it’s to warm.
