I was in the market for liquid eyeliner and false eyelashes so I figured I give these two a try.
I’ve been using the NYC liquid eyeliner in Jet Black 860A for a few weeks now. I paid $1.99 for a tube (0.2oz) which is very cheap compared to all the other brands where you barely get any for more money. However because it’s cheap, it’s harder to work with. There were quite a few times where it didn’t go on smoothly and I had to redip the brush multiple times. It’s a bit frustrating when you’re in a rush but it’s not completely unbearable. It isn’t as dramatic as the Sephora liquid eyeliner but I do love it and it’s great for a starter liquid eyeliner.
The false eyelashes (Glamour Eyelashes 974A Black for $1.99) are a different story. They say they’re self adhesive but we all know those don’t stick or stay as well. I literally stood there for 5 minutes trying to stick them on without glue with no luck. The hairs however feel great, a bit long, but they’re evenly spread apart so you don’t look like a drag queen. I still recommend getting the individual false eyelashes.
Overall, I would use them on a daily basis and maybe sometimes for special occasions depending on the look I’m going for. If you definitely don’t want to splurge and just need something the does the job, I would recommend these two.
