Marc Jacobs’ Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon is an extension of the existing Highliner eyeliner range. The new Highliner crayons are well matte, as opposed to the original Highliner eyeliners which had more of a sheen and come in 12 crazy-pigmented shades. These are also advertised as being akin to having a pot gel eyeliner but in pencil form. They have 15 seconds of playtime before they set, so you can smudge out, soften before it sets.
I have tried the original Highliners before, they are really good, so creamy, so pigmented and long-lasting. The new Matte Highliners are equally great and I’m glad I picked them all. These are so great, the formula, the color payoff, as well as the wear time are fantastic. The matte finish does genuinely stays put all day, believe me!
love the pigment of all the Matte Highliners, and you can use them as eyeshadows since they are pretty blendable. In particular, the lighter shades would be pretty nifty as eyeshadow pencils in a pinch, although they might be a bit too skinny to be comfortably used as eyeshadows regularly.
So beauties, what do you think, would I recommend the Marc Jacobs Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayons? Of course, I would recommend them. The color range, the texture, and glide that doesn’t tug on the skin, the waterproof-ness, as well as the lasting power make me a happy soul.
