I have become to love NYC products, not only because of the EXCELLENT price, but the quality and effectiveness of the products. NYC Instant Lash Mascara is my ALL TIME favorite mascara and is one I use daily! I love the sleek tube with the straight wand. I am not crazy about the curved wand, but the NYC Instant Lash Mascara has the perfect size wand and is straight and with one swipe of the tube, I can cover both my top and bottom lashes and get a great application!
This particular mascara is only $1.00 at my Walmart and I hope that they never discontinue it! Best mascara i've used so far.
Recently I was wandering the drugstore looking at what's new and just happened to walk by the NYC display, see their mascara for a dollar and just threw it in my basket. I've had it for a couple weeks now and must say I am quite surprised with this product.
The packaging is nice, it's slim and sleek. Just a regular nothing fancy mascara tube. And if you're like me, you like to keep things simple sometimes. Even better, it was one dollar.
So let's talk product. The wand is one of my favorites. It's not chunky, doesn't have too many bristles coming at you from every which way. It's slim and spaced out enough to get every lash without going over board. It coats every lash, gives a nice amount of length and not much volume. The mascara holds well. It makes lashes look very pretty. I have noticed that if you wear it for very long it does start to have some fall out. 9-10 hours in it is gonna start to give out. However, for an every day look I definitely reach for this. For a night out I think this would work well if you layered a volume building mascara over it, I feel it would probably seal it in and then you wouldn't have fall out. Because it gives you great length and it does get every lash so pair it with another mascara to get some volume and keep the product in place., and for a dollar you should give it a try.
I bought this product to try on my aunt for her engagement session. She has never successfully used mascara before so I wanted to try something that wasn't very expensive but would hopefully do the job. I was pleasantly surprised when it worked! It darkened and separated her lashes which was exactly what we need to define her eyes! It was hardly a struggle and her eyes looked much better! I would recommend this for a natural, simple look or for beginners to get the hang of mascara before purchasing an expensive one. My hopes weren't very high, but it did exactly what I needed it to!
