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.

Will you be trying these eyeliners out? What are your fave matte liners?

For me, spring is the perfect time to change up your look.  It’s all about starting fresh and new, and I thought that now would be great to share some of my favourite new products and shades for the season. Lipstick is one of the beauty products that I love the most – there are so many amazing shades, textures and finished to play around with, and this is exactly where I wanted to start.  Take a look at some of the newer lipsticks that I’m loving and let me know what your favourites are in the comments below!

tarte Amazonian butter lipstick in park ave princess & ethereal pink ($20 CAD): tarte already has a huge following for their Amazonian Clay powders and blushes for a reason.  These sustainable lipsticks pump your lips with moisture and soften while a dash of creamy colour gives lips a little glow.  This nude has a bit of a warm tone to it, meaning your lips look great and not ghastly.

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick in Sheer Shame & Sheer Liar ($26.00 CAD): These sheer, creamy lipsticks are perfect for spring.  While they are a lot more sheer than the original Revolution Lipsticks, they still give off nice colour and have a ton of shine, leaving an almost glossy look.  They don’t have the longest staying power (I need to reapply every couple of hours), and function great as more of a tinted balm.

Mary Kay True Dimensions Sheer Lipstick in Arctic Apricot & Posh Pink ($19.00 CAD): Another sheer lipstick for the spring, these lipsticks from Mary Kay are much lighter in pigment but have a fun bit of micro shimmer for a beautiful playful look.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang & Miss Scarlet, Marc Jacobs Beauty New Nudes Sheer Lipstick in Strange Magic ($38.00 CAD): Let’s start with the Le Marc lipsticks.  These are a dream come true for red lipstick lovers.  The colour is bold & amazing, long lasting and the formula is creamy and smooth.  The New Nudes, on the other hand, have a gel-like feel to them and are just so smoooooooth.  Strange Magic isn’t necessarily my favourite shade (it’s a bit light for me), but there are definitely some other notable shades (ie. Eat Cake & Understudy).
