NYC Liquid Eyeliner

Let me start off by saying that I’ve been a longtime fan of NYC Cosmetics, from their mascara, eye-shadows and nail polishes; NYC is a really good affordable drugstore brand.  

Well a few months ago I purchased the NYC Liquid Eyeliner in Sable (which is a dark black).  They did re-do their packaging recently, which comes in 2 different black shades a deep back: Black #887 & a lighter black: Pearlized Black #888.
The liner does apply without any effort at all and very smoothly, the liner is a very dark/deep black which is normally what I like in an eyeliner, so you can achieve a very dark black line without having to go over the line a few times. The formula is not too wet and not dry at all, which is perfect; the liner is smudge proof, within a few seconds the liner does dry, and when you rub on it the liner does not budge nor smear, this is very important for me because I tend to rub my eyes a lot and I certainly don’t want to look like a raccoon by the end of the day!
The price is amazing for this liner, it retails for $2.99, which is really unbelievable for liquid eyeliners now days. The only con that I have for this product is the wand is a flimsy “nail polish like” wand which makes it hard for me to create even lines, normally I like felt tip pens because it makes the application so much easier for me.  If you’re very experienced with applying liquid eyeliner with these types of wands then you will love this liner because it is smudge-proof, it is long lasting, and the color is a very deep dark black.  For me, I am sticking with felt tip which is why I will not repurchase this liner again (I do have their felt tip liquid liner which I LOVE and will be reviewing soon).

This liner can be purchased at local drugstores such as Target, Rite Aid, K-Mart, Wal-Mart, etc. To check out the liner on the NYC site click here.  Have you tried this liner before? What do you think of it? Do you prefer felt tip or wand liquid liners? Which is your favorite drugstore liquid liner? Which is your least favorite?
