Cheap Treats: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

Every week or so I like to share a Cheap Treat
something I love that is fewer than $10! Enjoy.

I know what you're thinking: Elle, what in the 'ell am I gonna do with white eyeliner? But wait! You totally need this in your makeup drawer/case/bag/sock (huh?). My Cheap Treat for this week is the Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk by NYX, and it's only $4. This little nifty pencil is so versatile! Here are just a few of the uses I've found (just be sure to blend!!):
  • run it under your nails to whiten them (does that make sense?)
  • use as a highlighter underneath your eyebrows or the inner corners of your eyes
  • use as an eye shadow base/primer
  • use as a eyeliner base
  • blend just a little in the center of your lips to make them appear bigger (no white should show)
  • draw where you want your eyebrow shape to be (like when you're plucking your eyebrows)
  • change the shade of lipstick, liner or shadow by mixing in some of the white
  • line your waterline on your bottom lashes to make eyes look more awake--MY FAVE! It works!

Do you use white liner? How?

  48. I have terribly dark circles under my eyes (fate of a college student) so this product may just be it. My favorite part is its price :) btw, do you know how this would respond to sensitive skin? Unfortunately I can use only a narrow range of product because of my breakout-prone skin.

    ReplyDelete
  49. You're awesome! I only ever use it to make my eyes look wider. Never thought to use in any other way.... I think you should come and work in my company :) xoxo
