  • "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

I love this eyeliner and I've been using it for years. I would always buy the Black Waterproof Eyeliner #931A but I recently purchased a couple and noticed they no longer have the "A" at the end of the #. I didn't think much of it until I was gliding it across my eyelid. I was able to notice that it wasn't as smooth as the old one I had just finished. Even with the change I still wouldn't use another eyeliner.

I love this product so much, especially because it's waterproof! I only use this as a top liner to create a wing, it last all day for me! From going to work to coming home at cleaning up the house getting a little dirty and it still stays on perfectly. I would highly recommend this to someone!

Don't waste your money on this NYC Waterproof eyeliner pencil. It has patchy formula and it very difficult to apply. You have to try several times to get any pigment on. Once the eyeliner is on it can be very hard to remove. I would not purchase this at all.

I love it its lasts very long! It stays on until i actually wash it off! Even though i live in a humid area is stayed put around my eyes and didn't smudge too much. But the only thing I didn't really like about it was how it's a little softer and more gel like than I would have liked.

I have this in black, and i have to say that this is one of the only eye liner that actually is water proof! I love wearing this eye liner in the summer when i go swimming especially because I don't have to worry about getting out of the water with eye liner all over my face! definitely worth the buy

Love NYC eye pencils. Colors are great! Some of them have a sparkling effect, I get compliments all the time. They go on nice and smooth and the color lasts all day.
Only downfall is that they don't sharpen well. The pencils are almost plasticky
, so a normal eye pencil sharpener gets very dull quick. I contacted their customer service asking if they had a sharpener and never got a response.

This eyeliner is SUPERB for anyone that wants that thick, creamy consistency. I'm in love! For those who are wondering: Yes, it's still a pencil that you have to sharpen, but it sharpens pretty nicely so that's fine by me! Great to use on the waterline, then set it with a matte black shadow! It'll stay on all day and look great! Really happy with this liner and I'm definitely buying it again.

Works perfectly! Doesn't slide off my face like other brands of eyeliner. Very inexpensive. I'm super allergic to a lot of things, but this eyeliner isn't one of them!! I had a $1.00 coupon, so it was under $3 for me. Check their website--maybe you can get a coupon as well!!!

I bought this in Smokey Plum, which is a cooler shade of purple than I expected. However, the liner itself is good, great even for the price! I experienced good staying power and was able to line my eyes with no smudging or issues

I used to use these eyeliner every single day. But I've taken a step back from the all eyeliner thing. This pencil is durable. It's smudges out okay if you do it quickly. It stays put in the water line and on the eyelid about 8 hours. Even lasts through Florida humidity!

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?
