NYC Kohl Brow/Eyeliner Pencil – Dark Brown Review

Hi Friends,

How are you doing today? It feels awesome to say TGIF again! I love weekends nowadays as we get chance to indulge ourselves in various activities related to upcoming events such as Halloween, Christmas here. Last weekend was amazing, we had great fun in Aadya’s playschool carving pumpkin and decorating kiddo boxes for upcoming Halloween. My hubby loves art and craft while I am not good at that.  He did the whole task of carving out pumpkin while I was behind the lens capturing his dedication for arts and craft 😛 Anyway, I am here today to talk about another kohl brow/eyeliner from NYC, its the NYC kohl Brow/Liner in Dark Brown, which belongs to my sis in law. Please read on further to know about NYC Kohl Brow/Eyeliner, dark Brown 🙂

My Experience with NYC Kohl Brow/Eyeliner Pencil – Dark Brown:

Brown is my favourite shade for eyes. I always prefer using brown kohl or eyeliner for eyes during day time, it brightens my face and pretty much compliments my skin tone as compared to black. I feel wearing brown kohl does not give any made up look to my face. It looks quite subtle. I already own many shades of brown in L’Oreal and Revlon out of which I love L’Oreal Voluminuous smoldering brown eyeliner the most.  So, the reason of loving this NYC kohl dark brown brow/eye liner is because of its pigmentation which is pretty close to L’Oreal Voluminous smoldering brown eye liner. I spotted it in our store along with other shades and picked it up immediately as I love dark browns.

This brown is a true brown color with creamy texture; however, it is not as much creamy as L’Oreal 😛 The texture is enough creamy just to slide comfortably on water line and upper lash line. I just wonder initially every pencil seems so rough on eyes and by the time their tip gets slightly blunt, the liner just goes smooth and creamy.  I felt slight tugging while putting it on lash line, but after 3-4 uses, the tip became soft and smooth. Now, it is pretty comfortable. I bought this shade exclusively for my sis-in-law, but then, looking at its pigmentation which is pretty similar to L’Oreal eyeliner and price, I too fell for it.  It stays for more than 6-8 hours on my skin which is on an average pretty good as compared to L’Oreal Voluminious, which stays for 4-5 hours maximum.

Other than that, it is one such shade after black which is highly demanded by our relatives. I never felt any irritation or itching except tugging initially, which is now resolved.  Morever, my sister-in-law wears lens and she also never experienced any issue while wearing this liner on her eyes. I usually prefer this eyeliner for weekend events and hang outs as it stays longer as compared to other Revlon or L’Oreal brown eyeliners I own till date. It stays for longer hours on brows as well. I love flaunting brown brows, it looks natural as compared to black I feel as I have black brown brows naturally. So, for me, this liner works best on brows and water line. I believe it is a great pick for someone as a gift or for self.  I am already stocking it up for my future visit to India, I have many friends and relatives back in India waiting for their gifts and demanded goodies 😛

Let’s sum up the pros and cons:

Pros of NYC Kohl Brow/Eyeliner Pencil – Dark Brown:

  • A true dark brown shade without shimmer.
  • Initially, it might feel rough on eyes, but after using it contiuously for some time, it feels soft and smooth on skin.
  • It compliments my fair skin tone very well.
  • The pigmentation is more or less comparable to L’Oreal Voluminuous Smoldering Brown Eyeliner.
  • Staying power is pretty good, more than 6-8 hours on my oily eye lids.
  • The size of the pencil is such that it will last for years and years even if we use it every day.
  • Dirt cheap price.

Cons of NYC Kohl Brow/Eyeliner Pencil – Dark Brown:

  • Initially, all these pencils feel rough on skin.

Well, I love these pencils for their price and staying power basically. Since I am a beginner in eye makeup, I exploit these pencil liners like anything. My heart usually aches while practicing eye makeup art with high-end goodies, but with these NYC stuff, I can practice the whole day 😛 It won’t hurt my hubby’s pocket or my calculation 😀 If you are a beginner in make up like me and want to set your hands, then definitely these pencils are for you guys. Get it for yourself or gift it, it will not disappoint you at any point.
