Nope! I'll stick with my trusty elf!!!
In lieu if the elf liner no being restocked for a week at my local target; I picked up this product because it was in the same price point. I was extremely dissatisfied. The formula was really runny and it got all over. It did come out very pigmented but it in no way lasted as long as I needed it too; fading in only about an hour. I'll be sticking with my trusty elf liner and next time that runs out just buying a slightly more expensive product. I love NYC but this product was just a complete miss for me!
Good but some flaws
When I first bought this brand about a year ago, it came in a very thin brush and was easy to use! I recently bought it again, and the brush is impossibly thick! I am a fan of cat eyes, and the brush made it impossible to make them. It comes off easily, usually lasts all day if you don't rub your eyes, cry, or swear. Flakes off into my eyes occasionally and irritates them!
I bought this because I went on vacation and forgot my regular liner. I gotta say, I don't really get all the hype. For the price, it's okay. I really don't like it though. It's incredibly thin and takes forever to dry! I find myself having to apply two or three coats to make it really opaque. The applicator gives very little control and isn't very good for winged eyeliner.
HG Liquid Liner
I absolutely love liquid liner and what it does for my small eyes. This was actually the first liquid liner I ever bought and I learned how to do liquid with this product. That being said, I've bought so many other brands thinking that they have to be better than my cheap NYC liquid. I don't even know why I bother because I love this one so much and all others just pale in comparison. I can stop the search for my HG liquid liner because I've had it the whole time. Completely opaque, easy to use, never flakes on me, black as black can get, and it even stays on through sweat and tears.
From skeptic to believer.
I was very hesitant to buy this liner because I bought another cheap, drugstore liner in the past & it was awful...but NYC had impressed me before, so I gave it a go. AND LOVED IT. The formula is so smooth and I absolutely love the applicator. I apply a black shadow over it to set it & my liner lasts all day, even through a 12-hour workday! And the price is what, like $3.00? Awesome buy.
great one worth trying!
I love NYC liquid liner, its not only very inexpensive but also the quality is pretty good. It has felt tip applicator which make it easier to apply, very black and smudge proof. In my opinion it is comparable to Urban decay liquid liner (which is used to be my favorite) but of course NYC is much...better because of the price, who does not like a bargain! :)
