Product Review: N.Y.C. Liquid Eyeliner in Pearlized Black

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

    I'm a newbie when it comes to makeup. I just started applying face powder, bb cream, and lipstick a year ago. I think I'm still looking for my HG's in makeup that I'm using.

     I started using eyeliner 6 months ago. My first try was from E.L.F. I know their liquid eyeliner can be a great eyeliner for beginners like me but sometimes I find it difficult applying in my eyelids. So I searched again for another eyeliner and this is what I found: N.Y.C. Liquid Eyeliner in Pearlized Black(870A).
N.Y.C. Liquid Eyeliner in Pearlized Black
     N.Y.C. Or New York Color Liquid Eyeliner caught my attention because of its Line and Define Precision Brush Applicator. It also claims 
N.Y.C. Liquid Eyeliner in Pearlized Black
do you want fast, fun, fabulously well-defined eyes? There's no way you can miss with. N.Y.C. Eyeliner. Light touches of the wand for fine lines... Heavy weight for dramatic lines. Long-lasting color glides on, and the narrow brush allows for precise application. Hypo-allergenic and Fragrance free.

What I like:
  • Cheap
  • The brush applicator is super fine and pointy for accurate application.
  • The color is black with a soft sheen, not that harsh black compared to other black eyeliners.
  • Easy to remove, I use facial wipes to remove it.
  • Did not smudge on my eyelids.
  • Hypo-allergenic and fragrance free.
What I don't like:
  • Tugs my lids.
  • It also cracked and flaked off after it almost dried.
  • Tends to dry slower than my E.L.F. eyeliner.
  • Not easily accessible, had to buy it online.
Will I Repurchase?No. There's a lot of eyeliners out there that I'm planning to try.

      I give this a 3.5/5 rating. I recommend this to makeup newbies like me who wants to try a cheap eyeliner that somehow does the job. If this did not tug my lids I think I'll stick with this. I also prefer brown eyeliners  because it looks more natural on me.

     Till my next review. Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!

Good Times!~


  1. I’d still purchase the applicator even if it is sold separately. I love it!
