NYX Cosmetics’ Jumbo Eye Pencil in Strawberry Milk

This name is spot on. It does indeed look like strawberry-flavored Quik (strawberry milk, for the curious.) Unlike Milk eyeshadow pencil, though, this has a bit of a metallic finish. And unlike the other metallic-finish pencils in this lineup, it applied fairly evenly. That even application could be due to the fact that this isn't as metallic as the other metallic finish pencils…or it could be that since this is much closer to my skintone than the other metallic pencils, it is a bit more patchy than I can readily see. Either way, I like this one more than I expected to.
