NYC Show Time Volumising Mascara – Review

I have been using NYC Show Time Volumising Mascara as part of an affordable mascara comparison project (more on that later). I have been quite impressed with this one so far.


This is a great every day mascara. It coats my lashes evenly, doesn’t make my lashes look like plastic (pet peeve) or spindly. I would say that the finished effect is natural and pretty. It lasted well on my lashes too, I didn’t need to reapply.

I quite like the shape of the brush too. It grabs the lashes easily.

The use of the words ‘Showtime’ and ‘Volumising’ might be a little deceptive however. Both of these words make me think of Dior Show mascara – this mascara is not similar in any way. It does volumise my lashes though, just not to the level that Dior Show does. This isn’t a bad thing for me since I usually only wear Dior Show at night for real drama.

I find it very difficult to find mascara’s that look good on my bottom lashes. This does the job well.

I have very sensitive eyes that just love to react to mascara and stream water all day long. I am happy to report that this did not happen with this mascara. I had zero eye irritation.

This mascara is a steal at €3.49. I shall be buying more!

What do you think of NYC products?

    Looks like it’s worth a shot! Plastic is exactly what I hate my lashes looking like but could never come up with the right word, thanks!

    My sis and I used to call NYC “Not Your Color” because it was cheap and we never used it. (Haha) But I have to say that for the price, the quality you get in some products is amazing. There is a perfect dupe for Metro Chic (Sephora OPI) in the NYC line and most face makeup is well pigmented. Thanks, Amy :)
