I love Marc Jacobs eyeliners. The richness of the colour and longevity of wear makes them among my faves when it comes to this category. So, naturally I found myself excited by a new offering from MJ in this category. How do the new Marc Jacobs Matte Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliners ($25 USD/$31 CAD) live up to my expectations?
Well, let’s just say they’ve really hit the nail on the head with this one. First of all, I’m a big fan of matte liner, which means these are right up my alley. They maintain a beautiful matte finish while providing a creamy, smooth application; the eyeliner glides right onto the skin without any creasing. The formula definitely sets quite quickly, so do any smudging immediately after application. After setting, this liner stays put and LASTS – it’s waterproof and locks into place. After swatching & setting, I rubbed at the lines with my fingers, fabric and tissues and ran them under water and was really impressed by how well they held up. They’re perfect for creating a bold look or using in the waterline.

When it comes to colour, it really doesn’t get any better than this. The line is currently available in 12 shades inspired by the Marc Jacobs’ Resort Collection, and features a selection of deeper shades as well as some bolder colours which are perfect for creating a graphic lid. I’m super impressed by the bold, rich pigments in the liners.
Overall, the long staying power and bold pigmentation of the Marc Jacobs Matte Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliners make these a total win for me and an easy addition to my eyeliner collection; I’m extremely impressed by the formula and feel and will definitely be keeping these in regular rotation.
