NYC Liquid Eyeliner Black Review & Swatches


NYC Liquid Eyeliner 887 Black Noir


Hey all beauty geeks!!!

Since the time I became interested in makeup (which was not long ago), I have only used eye pencils to define and line my eyes. The obvious reason was I am not good at using liquid eyeliners. My hands start shaking even at the thought of applying a liquid eyeliner 😉 However, eye pencils do not give that kind of depth and beauty to eyes that a precise liquid eyeliner can. So, I picked up NYC liquid eyeliner as a first attempt to line my eyes.

NYC liquid liner is a favorite among you-tubers as an affordable and an excellent alternative to high-end eye liners. This is the reason I bought this baby so that even if I fail (again) at lining my eyes, I won’t have wasted a high amount.  😉 Stay tuned to know did I waste money on this???

This staple liner can do fine or bold lines without the fuss. With its mistake-free applicator, elongate your lash line to shape and define your eyes like never before. ‘

My take on NYC Liquid Eyeliner 887 Black Noir:

NYC Liquid Eyeliner is available in two shades – Black and Pearlized Black. I picked up Black as the other color is a shimmery black. This eyeliner is among the few darkest black eyeliners I have used in my life. The color is really intense and I love that it has a brush applicator. Even the handle is a long one which makes the application easier for me for sure. Apparently, Megan Fox did mention this eyeliner as being one of her favorites. That is enough for atleast trying it once 😉

  • Texture: This particular eyeliner can’t be described as a thick or thin formula. I do remove the excess before applying, but I can finish one eye using just one swipe. It sets quickly and gives an ultra – matte look to the eyes.
  • Pigmentation: The color is intense in just one swipe. It does not look dark gray as many other eyeliners do.
  • Staying Power: It stays on the lids for a quite decent time. I have oily lids and still it didn’t smudge or fade on me. Though do note that it is not water-proof.
  • Packaging: The liquid eyeliner comes in a standard tube packaging with silver lettering. It has a fine and concise brush applicator with a very comfortable, long handle. The brush is dense which gives a beautiful application in one stroke.

Final Impression:

The liquid eyeliner is easy to use and excellent for a beginner like me. The added bonus is that I can actually see a line on my eyelids. Since I have small eyes, the eyepencils looked like an eyeshadow on me. Recommended if you are new to liquid eyeliners.

Rating– 3.5/5

  1. Hey, seems like a nice buy. I am a complete beginner in eye lkiner application. I have a severe problem when it comes to symmetry- I can’t get both my eyes lined equally. Almost always 1 of my eyes has a thick fat layer and the other is like a feeble sorry attempt for a liner… I have given up on myself…

    • Hehe Purnima.. Seems like story of my life as well dear 🙂 My right eye seems to get d perfect love n d left eye is treated as a foster child 😉
