What NYC Claims:
Get the wide-eyed look, pure and innocent yet so alluring. Volume that feels as light as feathers. Dramatically volumized, fuller, thicker, curvier lashes.
The wand is a nice hourglass shape with natural bristles. When I pulled it out of the tube, I knew I’d like the bristles look well separated with no excess product build up. The formula is not too wet which I enjoy. I do agree that this does not leave your lashes crunchy. One of the main ingredients is beeswax which contributes to the weightless, soft feel.
This mascara provides really great separation and I never have to worry about clumping. It gives me good length, volume and holds a curl! I can wear this all day without it smudging or flaking. I’ve checked in at 8 hours as well as 10 hours and although it doesn’t look as fresh as when first applied, it held up quite nicely long into the evening!
Big lashes: 4/5
No clumping: 5/5
No flaking/smudging: 5/5
Easy to take off: 5/5
Overall 29/30 A+
Overall I’m a huge fan of this mascara and is such a great deal for the price. If you haven’t given NYC a try in years, make sure to check out their new products as they’ve really stepped up their game!
