REVIEW - NYC - High Definition - Liquid Liner - Extra Black

Hullo Ladies!

If you've been reading my blog for awhile you may now I'm a big fan of the Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Liners. That and my MAC Fluidlines are the only thing I like to wear.

I have tried other liners over the years. Some of them liquid. 

I've been reading a lot of reviews lately on Felt Liners though, ones that have the look of felt pens and apply like one too. 

I heard of some good ones from Brands like, Soap and Glory and Maybelline but didn't want to spend too much money on one until I knew if I liked how a felt liner applied first. If I found it easy and usable. 

In the end I picked up the NYC High Definition Liquid Liner in Extra Black. What I found strange was that on the Superdrug Website and in the store it's called the High Definition Felt Tip Liner but on the actual packaging It's called the High Definition Liquid Liner....Strange! 

On to the liner itself, It took me a few goes to learn how to do it, which may sound silly to you but I can be very fussy with how my liner looks. 

At first I could only create really thick lines like in the picture below because I kept making mistakes and had to go over them by making my line thicker instead of wiping it of and starting all over again! 

I realized soon after that this might have been my fault, I was using it like I would my gel liner, not taking into account that I needed to put slightly more pressure on the pen to create a neat line. 

It's not the blackest liner I've used but it has great pigmentation and doesn't go on patchy at all. 

I don't find problems with slow drying either, I have a habit of blinking when applying my liner and sometimes when using a liquid liner or ever a gel one this could mean that I end up with my liner nearly touching my brow bone! 

That is one of the reasons I love my Bobbi Brown so much and also why I like this, It dries very quickly and doesn't budge easily. 

I applied this liner around Twelve this Afternoon and took it of seven hours later and It looked the same as when I applied. 

I do not suffer with creasing or oily lids naturally so that may be why It sticks around for so long but if you do have those problems then It may be wise to use a primer/base of some kind first. 

All In All, I really like this Felt Liner, it's good quality, inexpensive and It's great for everyday wear when I don't feel like using my more expensive gel liners. 

You can buy this product for £2.99 in Superdrug - HERE 

Have you tried any good Felt Tip Liners recently?

  1. Looks like a good deal. I saw the one by MAC when it first came out but it cost way too much. I love when drugstore companies make the same product and lower the price :D

    1. Haha me too hun! I feel so much better about my constant shopping If I get a great deal :-)xx

  2. That's amazing that it lasted 7 hours! I have oily lids, so I'd definitely need a primer, but this definitely looks worth trying...especially for the amazing price. Great review! :)

    Following you! xo

    1. Thanks hun, hope it works for you if you try it! Thanks for following! xx

  3. I'm a giant fan of the Soap & Glory (although maybe because we don't have them here in Aus!) but I'm a big fan of these kinds of liners already! I think they're fun to use and make it a little bit easier for those of us with a shaky hand ;)
    I still have the Bobbi Brown on my wishlist because of you so hopefully I can try it soon :D

    1. They are very interesting to use, it took my awhile to get used to it but once you know they are very easy! Ohh I'll have to try the Soap and Glory one at some point then!

      I'm still very much in love with my Bobbi Brown, I don't think I could live without it now hehe Hope you get to try it at some point hun!
