Hello gorgeous readers! I'm excited to bring you a review for Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon, courtesy of an Influenster campaign. The two shades sent to me were 41 (Earth)quake and 59 Pink of me. These new gel eyeliners are formulated to be matte with extreme pigmentation, precise application and a long 12-Hour wear. Read more about my thoughts and see a swatch for the featured shades below. Stay Beautiful! XOXO

A gel pot eyeliner in a crayon that delivers intense color and 12-hour waterproof wear and amazing glide in shimmer and matte finishes. Experience the luxury of gel eyeliner with the ease of a pencil. Make a bold statement with this extreme-wear, waterproof eyeliner that glides on effortlessly to deliver instant color payoff. Exclusive to Marc Jacobs Beauty, the super-malleable formula offers versatility of application. Apply Highliner for flawless, precise lines, or smudge immediately after lining for an instant smoky eye.
Formula: I was skeptical about the gel liners claim on having long wear power since gel formulas tend to glide off real easy, however, to my surprise the formula did not budge and stayed put all day and all night. The product applied on smooth and the pencil glided silkily across the lid without any tugging on the water line. As for the gel being matte, while there is no shimmer in the gel, the pigmentation is rich and intense. I also liked the fact that I was able to control the pencil movements with absolute precision so it catered to the design I was going for. Creating subtle or intense cat eyes is super easy with MJ Highliners. Also, the formula is water proof so if you have eye allergies like me, runny eyes will not smudge your eye look. The pencil is dispensed by a little push up mechanism on the other side of the tube and it appears that you can use a pencil sharpener to trim it down. I have to mention that while the formula is a dream the gel wastes down rather quickly because it's creamy and soft, although it will not erase off of your lids. Bottom line, the product is easy to use, non-irritating and will last well into the night so I give it a thumbs up!
