If longer, defined lashes are what you’re after, this is a bargain of a mascara! The brush makes lashes longer quickly without a single clump, and it removes easily with a water-soluble cleanser.

The N.Y.C. (New York Color) brand clearly wants to align itself with all of the excitement and pulsating action of the Big Apple—think Sex and the City or any of the notable fashion magazines whose home is in the heart of Manhattan. It would have been a clever marketing maneuver if New York Color had delivered, but despite a few stellar products, the line overall is comparatively tame and relatively ordinary. Sexy product names and beguiling makeup descriptions don't equal great makeup. Forget Sex and the City, this is more like a new Woody Allen film—a few surprises, but predictably familiar in the end.

The most appealing part of this line is rock-bottom prices; everything is less than $10, and several items are less than $3 (but that's still not as rock bottom at E.L.F., where $1 per item is standard). Although this isn't the cream of the crop for makeup, there are more than enough inexpensive okay options to make it worthwhile for you to check if it's being sold at your local drugstore. Just keep in mind that not everything N.Y.C. offers is "prestige quality" or the least bit fashion-forward. Put another way: New Yorkers are a notoriously tough group to please, and as a whole N.Y.C. doesn't do enough to make an on-the-go city girl slow down and see what she's missing. In fact, shopping this line without some advance information may lead to resounding disappointments, and that's never the goal. On the flipside, knowing what to zero in on will not only save you money, but also connect you with a product that stands a very good chance of leaving you wondering why anyone would pay more.

You're most likely to find N.Y.C. at Target and Rite Aid. Regrettably, testers are not available, but both of the aforementioned retailers have a good return policy if you save your receipt.

    A keeper
    • My new everyday mascara; finally found a replacement for L'Oreal Lash Architect (discontinued). Performs as claimed: lengthens with minimal thickening, doesn't smear or smoodge around, additional coats give you more oomph, adheres to lashline well, comes off with plant oils, great slim black case, too. Only caveat is, the formula goes on slightly dry. Sometimes I do my eyes in the dark, so this is a plus for me.

    Incredible bargain
    • It's an amazing steal. It doesn't add volume, but with no clumping at all, it gives you the look of naturally long lashes.

    Really Good Mascara
    • Ok So..... This is a Surprisingly good mascara. I purchased this after I was let down with ELF Volumizing mascara ( the formula dried too quickly in the container). NYC Skyrise lifts and Extends your lashes like you would Not Believe for a cheapy mascara! My only 2 criticisms about it is the brush which is a little too long for my liking and it takes a bit longer to wash off BUT other than that - its FAB! Dont buy One buy Three.

    Beautifully long lashes
    • If you are looking for voluminous lashes, this is not for you, but if you are looking for long defined lashes, this is a great product at an outstanding price. This mascara gives long defined lashes without any clumps. One coat gives a very natural look, while two coats still look natural and tailored enough for the office. This is a great day time mascara.
