A gel crayon eyeliner with a waterproof, long-wearing, color-intense payoff. Make a bold statement with this extreme-wear, waterproof eyeliner. Like a gel pot eyeliner encased within a crayon, this breakthrough product is exclusive to Marc Jacobs Beauty. Super-malleable, this gel crayon glides on smoothly for a flawless, precise application, then sets in place for all-day wear. A built-in sharpener makes sure the crayon always has a perfect point for an instantly sharp look on the go. Intense color payoff available in richly pigmented shades, including Blacquer, the blackest, shiniest black.
Marc Jacobs’s new makeup line includes 6 eye liners, which the company calls Highliner Gel Eye Crayons. This review is for 3 of those colors: Th(Ink), Jazz(Berry), and Intro(Vert).
These pencils have reflective silver outsides and also contain sharpeners in the base of each pencil.
Th(Ink) is a blue-purple. Jazz(Berry) is a reflective cranberry. And Intro(Vert) is a bright green. All of the colors have a slight shimmer to them.
The Highliner formula has a good amount of softness so that the pencils glide onto the lid without extra tugging or pressure. The colors are close to opaque on initial application (Intro(Vert) is a little less opaque than the other two), and they all go opaque if you go over the line with more product.
These also have great staying power. I didn’t see any fading of the color after 7 hours of wear. I also tested these on my waterline. Th(Ink) went on the most smoothly to the waterline, though all of them need some layering to get a smooth surface. Surprisingly, even though Th(Ink) went on more opaquely than the other 2 in the waterline, Jazzz(Berry) had longer staying-power. They all had slight fading in the waterline after about 3 hours of wear.
Ease of Use: 9.25/10
These liners’ gel formula glides across the skin pretty easily, without you having to tug at your skin.
For $25.00 you get 0.1 ounces in each liner. This is about twice as much product as you normally get with high-end eye liners.
