If there’s one thing I love, it’s an eye pencil and I knew these Marc Jacobs Highliners were going to be good when I swatched them on my arm and they wouldn’t wipe off. I was stood on the beach scrubbing away and the liners wouldn’t budge at all….
Marc Jacobs believe their Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayons create extreme colour that’s waterproof and lasts for a total of 12 hours. They’re said to be matte rather than flat and have a formula that glides on like a dream. From my experience I would say that all of the above is true. They’re highly pigmented so the colour payoff is fab. The gel-like texture makes them incredibly easy to apply and the wear time is fantastic – much longer than the 12 hours they claim.
The waterproof formula means they set incredibly fast and you have about 20 seconds before the eyeliner has completely dried. So for anyone that likes to create a natural looking smudge (yep that’s me) you have to work incredibly quick. Alternatively you can use them to apply a perfect looking line, whether it be around the eyes or on the inner lids. Just make sure you have some oil based make-up remover to hand for when it’s time to remove. Trust me, you’re going to need it with these.
Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayons are available in the following shades:
41 (Earth) Quake
61 Over (night)
53 Out of the Blue
47 Fine (Wine)
57 Deja Blue
59 Pink of Me
55 Mist Me
My favourite is (Earth) Quake. I love it as it’s the perfect everyday shade for me. Deja Blue isn’t really my colour but it is stunning. I think it’ll be lovely for those that prefer cooler tones.
