Review: NYC New York Color Showtime Glitter Eyeliner

Retail Price: $2.49


I have been a HUGE fan of NYC New York Color products for many many years. If you peek into my makeup stash, you will see quite a few NYC that I use in my daily routine. But to my amazement, I did not have a eyeliner pencil from them. So naturally I was excited to try this out.

I love eyeliner pencils, they are easy to use, not messy, and great to complete any look. I however do not like having to pay over $15 for some pencils as with other companies. So the first thing I like about this is of course the price. Very affordable, and in this economy, that's always a bonus perk.

Now as for the pencil itself... I like it. It was much more pigmented than I was expecting. The glitter is beautiful, not too much, not too little. It's the Goldilocks of glitter liners. Very easy application, no tugging or pulling on my skin. Looks great at night for that extra zing. My only recommendation is to use a black eye shadow of your choice and set the pencil after putting on. I find this helps the liner stay put for longer.

Pros: Smooth application, opaque color, beautiful glitter.

Cons: Doesn't stay on for 5 hours + if not set with a black eye shadow.
