NYC City Proof 24Hr Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil REVIEW

            Happy new week  ALL you lovely faces! If you don't know it by now, eyeliners are my favorite beauty products, next to lip glosses. This one was sent to me by influenster, but all opinions are my own. Let's see how well it did!

How NYC describes the product

The only liner you'll ever need for your on-the-go lifestyle. This multi-benefit pencil works hard so there's no need for reapplying.. Just swipe on for long lasting 24HR color! Used as an eye liner, apply along your lash line from the inner to the outer corners. Used as a brow filler, fill in and extend your brow shape by following your natural arch and applying with short strokes.


  • Waterproof shades that will last for 24 hours
  • The only liner you'll ever need for your on-the-go lifestyle
  • This multi-benefit pencil works hard so there's no need for reapplying
  • Just swipe on for long lasting 24HR color!
Price: $3.99

My opinion: 

             Let me start by telling you the best things about this eyeliner. Although there ain't much to tell ya!  It has a thick, creamy consistency. It also has a nice pigmentation. It glides on the skin very smoothly when the hard edges of the stick are not in the way. The color is slightly darker than my skin tone when swiped once. I did not see a big difference when I tried to apply it on my top lids and water lines. But, if you are looking to filling in  your eyebrows, this is a wonderful pencil.  You can use it to create a few lines to achieve the perfect eyebrows. You know, the ones I  see on YouTube, but can't seem to get right. Look at Exhibit A below! The staying power is just good enough for the price.  I must warn you that it smudges after each swipe, especially after it gets in contact with heat.  If you have oily skin like me, get ready for some serious smears! The eyeliner itself breaks easily. Mine broke off as soon as I removed the cover, but the stick is so hard you cannot even sharpen it with a regular pencil sharpener. 

  • Creamy
  • Goes on the skin smoothly
  • Nice pigmentation 
  • Affordable 
  • Lasts long enough for the price
  • Great for filling in eyebrows
  • Not easy to sharpen
  • Beaks off easily 
  • Gets used very quickly
  • Smudges 
The bottom line 

              NYC City Proof 24Hr Waterproof Eyeliner   is pretty descent for the price, but it is best when used as an eyebrow filler, which I think  it was created for.

  1. I love your reviews, Nerline.
    Too bad the eyeliner itself breaks off easily

  2. Great honest review, Nerline dear! Thanks for sharing, beautiful. :)


  3. Great review! I like the pigmentation and how easy it glides on. My biggest hangup is that it doesn't self sharpen. I don't buy eyeliners that don't self sharpen.

  4. Great review. I usually use eyeshadows to fill in my brows. Pencils looks really harsh on me.

    1. I remember, Simera! You told me about the eye shadow before. I need to try it.

  5. amazing review! I love that brand

  6. I love how you always give your honest opinion about products. Thanks for sharing dear. xo

  7. Nerline great review I like NYC product but yes they do tend to break is not the most stable but the shade is stunning on you,.

  8. great review. looks like a product I will buy. too bad it is hard to sharpen though.

  9. That's exactly how I felt when I tried it Nerline! Excellent review! You have to pick your occasion to use it, but for the price it's nice.

    1. Thank you, Kim! I am glad I am not the only one who feels that way about it.

  10. Nice review. I think your eye brows look good. I've been playing around with shading my brows also (thanks youtube lol) and I have the similar issue of my eyeliner smearing after a period of time. What is the price of this liner?

  11. Sooo Gorgeous Darling:) Thanks for sharing:)
    Love the photos, So Pretty:)

  13. Great review Nerline, I hate that is not good for eyeliner, I have been looking for a good waterproof one! Thanks again for the honest review!


  14. Great review, Nerline. I can add another con....it also transfer onto your waterline. It was a totally miss for me.
    kisses, babe

    1. That's a good con, Leny! It smears so much. Kisses love

  15. I bought this and didn't like it. Like you said it is difficult to sharpen, it lasted a week as I sharpened it a lot and it kept breaking... lol. Nice review.

  16. Great to hear your thoughts, always helpful.

  17. Good review Nerline, think I'll pass on this one and stick to Lancome!

  18. It looks beautiful on you but the "cons" are too awful to ignore...:-) Great Review

  19. Thanks for the honest review, too bad it´s not great as a eyeliner. Too many contras.
