  • "As a general rule, I hate kohl-type eyeliners. I find them too waxy or hard, and the color is never true on me. I picked up this NYC Waterproof Eyeliner by accident, thinking I was buying an automatic eyeliner, and had I not been down to a nubbin on Prestige automatic liner, I would have taken this back to Rite Aid toute de suite. I'm glad I gave this a try! The pencil I tried was black, and the black is a basic, true black that does not look grayish on me. The formula is even softer than the automatic pencils I'm accustomed to, yet it can create a fine, delicate line. What's more, I can actually pencil in between my lashes and on my waterline with this, something I have never been able to do with ANY eye pencil. I took off one lippie because the color does seem to fade, but only after six hours or more. For the price and the ease of application, that's something I'm willing to live with - after all, I can reapply! " in 43 reviews

This eyeliner (in black) is definitely on par with my Urban Decay 24/7 slide on glide on liner in perversion. I wouldn't say it is waterproof, more like water resistant. It does budge a little in my water line (keep in mind, I have watery eyes). Other than budging a bit over the span of the day, it is quite long lasting. I think it is cheaper than the $14.08 that is suggested with the picture. I'm fairly certain it is closer to drugstore price (probably around the $6 dollar mark) I say probably because I received this free for reviewing purposes in my jingle voxbox.

I have a few of these and for the price,  I love them.  They are what they say; water proof but they do smudge too so a little control with application and you'll be fine.

So creamy and pigmented. Absolutely love this product
The only cons is you Do have to set with shadow and product runs out quick but since product is cheap it's good!

Effective and long wearing. I actually stock up on this product. It's one of the best pencils out there. Especially for lining my eyelid before I put on faux lashes.

I received this eyeliner complimentary from influenster for testing purposes. I really like this eyeliner, especially the color that was sent to me (dark brown). It is a nice change from the usual black eyeliner. I like this one because it glides on. Its very smooth and pigmented. Only downside is that I don't think it is 24 hour lasting. Towards the end of the day, it starts to smudge. To make it long lasting or prevent it from running on the skin, I would recommend using a eye shadow/powder of the same color on top.

I love this eyeliner for cat costumes during Halloween. I work at a preschool and when it comes to Halloween kids and teachers go all out. Well given I need a costume that I can chase toddlers in and won't scare the babies I usually opt for a princess or a cat. This year I was a cat and let me say my whiskers and cat eye never moved with this eyeliner. Once you're set that's its, you're set for life.

I live in the upper Midwest (winter right now) and I have a relatively oily face/eyelids and one eye is pretty sensitive and waters easily. This eyeliner (which was received in my #jinglevoxbox) was surprisingly better than I had expected. I got it in dark brown and it glided on very well in a swatch and over eye shadow. It lasts the whole day and for me, it wasn't difficult at all to remove (I used the Epielle cleansing wipes to remove it).

I recently tried the NYC eyeliner pencil and it was the decent for the price. It has to be sharpened well or it won't go on as dark. It's not very creamy it feels chalky and it comes off very easily. I only had it on for 2 hours and it had already faded off. I would not recommend this product.

For being a cheap less than $5 eyeliner, its quite decent. I have the black and brown colors and the black is nice and BLACK. Its goes on smoothly, doesn't irritate my waterline (or instantly come off 20 minutes later) and lasts pretty darn long. It last a lot longer than some higher end eyeliners I have. It does seem to be waterproof and I need makeup remover to completely remove it. Overall I really like this eyeliner I think its a great product and affordable to boot!

This eyeliner is pigmented and very smooth upon application. This was recommended to me by Jessica Braun on YouTube. I bought it because she said she had used this on her wedding day and it had stayed put all day. But when I put it on, it didn't stay on very long and I had black under my eyes. I do have watery eyes which I think doesn't help it. Though it doesn't stay put on my waterline, it is a great product it you want to have a darker base on your lid.

Does this eyeliner smear quick? I hate having to re apply eyeliner in my waterline. Also, Does it irritate eyes?

Does it smudge/smear if it gets too warm? I've noticed i end up with 'raccoon eyes' after a long day using some eyeliners

I am not a big makeup person. I'm all about "less is more". My makeup routine consists primarily of foundation, blush and mascara. I love the way eyeliner looks when I have my makeup done by someone else, but I don't have the steadiest hand. I tried a liquid eyeliner previously that just went everywhere. Does this eyeliner stay put? Or am I going to end up with it all over my eyelids?

How long does this liner last? Can it be removed easily with eye makeup remover?
