I am super excited to introduce you to Marc Jacobs Beauty’s brand new Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon. Umm yeah- it’s amazing.
It is widely know in beauty circles that gel pot eyeliners deliver the best results. They just do. Long wearing, amazing pigment and a smooth application but for some reason I personally have never really perfected my application of them so I was super excited when Influencer sent me two of Marc Jacobs’ brand new Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayons to try!
The gel crayon has the amazingness of a gel pot, but in easy eyeliner packaging.
These new gel eyeliners are formulated to be matte with extreme pigmentation, precise application and a long 12-Hour wear. They come in a twist up form with a sharpener at one end, so the liner can be easily sharpened for a a precise application.
The Highliners are available in 12 gorgeous shades and Influencer sent me two, 41 (Earth)quake and 43 (Brown)ie, to test drive.
Earth(quake) is a Dark Brown while (Brown)ie is a medium brown and the two together are layering perfection.
The liner glides on smoothly but the tip isn’t as thin as a liquid liner, so it’s best for tight lines around the eye and smudged or smokey eye looks. I love that it goes on without tugging or skipping on my skin.
Lasting power? Well, here’s the true test- I applied and smoked it out under my waterline (if you want to rock a smokey eye with these do it immediately after you apply because once they are set they won’t budge). It was super windy outside so my allergies were in full force aka watery eyes. The liner stayed put all day even though my eyes were running like a waterfall!
I am seriously impressed with this liner- a great pick for for anyone who loves liners and/or easy long-wearing eye makeup products.
