Hi Pretty Gals..
How are you doing today? Hope everybody is fine and enjoying weekend! I am also relieved and happy to see my mum doing fine and showing signs of improvement as per her medical report. Meanwhile am also excited to see Aadya enjoying her pre nursery class. Hahh time flies so fast, Lil baby is moving her tiny steps towards her future building block. Feeling Excited and nervous.. ? Thankfully one of her teacher is Indian and we gossip a lot about our home town apart from story time and activities. I just love visiting her school as I get to meet new mums of my age and we share good time speaking our experiences together. It’s such a bliss to get in touch with so many Indian mums and soon we are planning to make a little Indian community here yayyy..
Moreover Aadya is also learning give & take, sharing her toys and food which is great start for her as she is very possessive child. I hope we both will have good time learning with fellow mums and her playmates. By the way let me share my today’s purchase with you, another gorgeous black brow/liner from NYC.

My Experience with NYC Classic Kohl Brow/Eye Liner Pencil in 921 Jet Black:
Well this liner was my sil’s finding. She is huge fan of NYC eversince she came in touch with NYC cosmetics sometime back. My mil came here with long list of cosmetics mostly belonging to NYC as per demanded by my SIL and that’s how I came to learn ABC of make up and NYC… 😉 😀 She is a learning model and aspiring actor hence she always hunts for cosmetics every now & then. Thankfully I also get to know so many wonderful things from her. This “Jet Black” as she says is not exactly deep black a normal black good to line her eyes and water line mainly.
For me it is a perfect charcoal black liner just apt for blackest black eyes for normal days or hanging outs. I love the fact that it is creamy and soft on eyes unlike previous one. However, my sil never experienced any problem with these eye liners lucky she is! It glides smoothly on eyes but it takes little more effort to line my lower water line. However I feel that I never get a precise line on upper eyelids in one stroke, I need to go for dots and then join them slowly to make neat and clean line. Thanks to IMBB maestros for letting me know about these mistakes and providing tips to correct them as well! It does not hurt my eyes and even if I wear them for more than 8 hours it does not break out my skin or irritate my eyes. Even my sil says she hardly need a remover as this liner fades away in 6-8 hours with slight smudging which gives nice smokey effect to eyes and she loves that!
It’s good to know that this liner is water resistant but still it is easy to remove by oil or cream. My sil wears contact lenses almost every day and she never experienced any issue with this liner. Moreover, I have also started using it occasionally and I think I like it now. I initially felt that it was slightly rough but as its tip smooths out it gives satisfactory results wow! My sil is blessed with amazing dry skin still she says these liners tend to smudge and fade within 6-8 hours. My sil also uses this pencil to fill in her silky shiny black brown brows but my brows are brown hence I limit its use as a liner only. It could have been great if this pencil was more smooth and soft. Over all we highly recommend this jet black to all black pencil lovers.
Pros of NYC Classic Kohl Brow/Eye Liner Pencil in 921 Jet Black:
• A deep black creamy soft brow/liner
• It works well as an eye liner apart from filling in brows
• It is much creamier and soft on eyes
• It does not irritate or causes any itching on lash line or water line
• It can be easily removed off by using oil or cream
• It is water resistant
• It fades away giving nice smudging effect which gives slight smokey look to eyes
• You get such long duel pencil at dirt cheap price
Cons of NYC Classic Kohl Brow/Eye Liner Pencil in 921 Jet Black:
• As per my sil it’s not the blackest black you ever get to see
• Staying power is slight average on oily lids
• Initially everyone may find it hard to slide it on eyes unless the tips smoothes out
Well after my bad experience with In the navy NYC eye liner I was quite confused about them but this jet black cleared my doubts. For me it is great black for my eyes and I would love to use it as a kohl even if I need to reapply it every 4-5 hours. My sil is already on her way to repurchase it next time while I am still on my way to use it more often and what about you gals.. ?
