marc-jacobs-beauty-highliner-4“Eyes are everything to me. ¬†I have no problem with the rest of the face. ¬†I just think eyes are so expressive. ¬†You can say a lot with your eyes. ¬†The eyes stimulate the other person’s imagination.”

_ Mac Jacobs


I’m not an MUA nor have I ever claimed to be one. ¬†Now that you know I’m just a regular degular shmegular girl who has a real love for makeup you’ll ¬†really like this ¬†Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner review.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner says it offers a waterproof bold & intense color in a matte finish for extreme wear. ¬†It’s being said to be a gel pot eyeliner encased within a crayon. ¬†First of it’s kind, an exclusive to¬†Marc Jacobs Beauty. The brand says the eyeliner should sit in place for an 12-hour wear. ¬†The eyeliner has a built in sharper to help keep a perfect point for a precise look.

The matte finish is prefect for a person who wants a¬†glitter-free and super-rich pigment. They don’t dry instantly. ¬†It does take roughly 15 seconds to dry. ¬†That’s good because that gives you time to play with your look before the highlighter settles. ¬†Or it could be a bad thing because the product could shift on accident. ¬†I like that it’s a waterproof gel formula. ¬†I also like that it ¬†has a built in sharpener however, if you forget to reattach it the sharpener could be lost.

The Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner can be purchased at marcjacobsbeauty.com¬†or¬†sephora.com. ¬†I would say at $25 save your money. ¬†Mac Jacobs Beauty Highliner sized at 0.01 oz ¬†compared to MAC’s¬†pro longwear fluidline ¬†at¬†0.1 oz for $8 less can’t compare to a pot gel liner. ¬†Yes, the pencil is very convenient and¬†has a super fast drying time. ¬†I can see myself taking this with me to the lobby of a chic hotel as Marc envisioned. ¬†The brand’s claim to be long wearing is very true! ¬†The major perks of the highliner is the sharpener to keep the point sharp. ¬†It really does help in getting that crisp line we all love. ¬†The application was great and I loved how the pencil looked on me. ¬†It’s the price I can’t get past. ¬†If they dropped the sharpener and shorten the pencil a little maybe Marc could ¬†get the cost at $15 maybe. If you’re a Marc Jacobs Beauty fan this gel eye crayon will be worth every penny.
