I have read somewhere that Megan Fox loves this product. I've also seen great reviews on Youtube regarding this eyeliner. So I decided to give it a try.

As far as function goes, I think this liner lives up to its claims. The small, tapered brush makes it possible for a perfect, precise line. The staying power is fine. I have had no problems with fading or smudging. This might be obvious but in case some ppl are unclear about this, DO NOT line your waterline with liquid liner. It's neither safe nor hygenic.

For $2.99 CAD, I think it's well worth the try. NYC liquid liners come in a variety of shades. Some of their brighter colors (bronze, green, blue) would be fun to experiment with for special events/parties.

I have yet to find an eyeliner that is as good as this product. The product goes on easy and stays on all day. You surely can't beat the price and I will never be without this liner!!

After looking searching around for the blackest liquid liner I found myself standing in rite aid lucky enough to be smack in front of a BOGO sign for NYC! So my 1.99 line just got slashed in half! So I have no complaints in the price dept. When I got home the 1st thing I did was swatch the liner & I fell in love with the rich black color (jet black). I was a bit afraid of the brush cause I'm more of a felt tip liner kinda girl. As soon as I applied it to my lid all apprehension went out the window. The very thin brush glided very easily across the lid & went on evenly & was suprisingly easy to wing it out. I was about to blow up the MUA board singing the praises of this extremely easy, black & cheap liner. I'm glad I waited... I was sorely disappointed by the lasting power of this liner. A few hrs later I started to see some flakes but I told myself for my next application I'm gonna use my trusty TFSI & MAC PP to avoid the same problem. The next day I used my double primer technique & it helped but not really. It just prolonged the inevitable. After about 6 hrs my under eye area was a mess. The next day I used my dbl primer plus I secured the liner with matte black shadow. It still gave me flakes & after a long day I also had gaps in the liner where it had just faded completely. So overall I loved the color but the staying power sucks. Its just 2 much work to make it stay in place. I'm glad it only really cost me 99 cents. And on the upside with my BOGO I got a lipgloss that I've been wearing everyday! (FYI its NYC Sheer Ruby Gloss its luv : )

this product is only 2 dollars, so i didnt expect much. before i bought it. i had been using one with a felt tip brush, and i hated it. it was to stiff and hard to control. so i tried this and I'm in love! it has a brush applicator, so the flexibility makes it very easy to use. I always had problems making straight, even lines with my old one, this one was just so easy and natural tho! I got the color of Pearlized Black, which is black, with a hint of metallic shimmer. It so cute! it isnt as harsh as black is, so you dont look really goth. instead of closing off ur eyes, the reflects make it enhance your eyes and brighten them. I have heard complaints of it flaking and cracking, but i have never had this issue, however i always have an eyeshadow primer on underneath, so that might help :)

I didn't like the brush on this. It's like a mini paint brush and is too difficult to draw a line with.

This product seems to be a hit or miss depending on the user. In my opinion I love this liquid eyeliner and for a price of only $1.99, it does a lot. The brush applicator is great and I find it easier than using felt-tipped applicators like Revlon's liquid eyeliner. I've tried Jet Black and Pearlized Black, both great colors. Pearlized Black is more subtle and Jet Black is more intense. Though many have complained about the liner cracking, its all about the way you use it. For me, I use a primer first and sometimes use a regular eyeliner prior to applying the liquid eyeliner. I get minimal/no cracking by doing this. Overall great product and I'll buy it again for sure!

I love this eyeliner. This is the first liquid eyeliner i ever bought and immediately fell in love with it. Although i have tried other pricier products from revlon to mac i still prefer this one. It's easy to apply, lasts for a long time and dries fast. I will definitely buy this product again and again.

This is actually pretty good for the price. I wish it went on a little shinier and wish it didn't flake as easily. I've tried it with and without primer and found that primer definately helps the flakines, but it still does a little. I won't use it on a day that I really need my eyeliner to hold up or when going out. But on a typical day this is pretty good.
