My Experience with Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner – Midnight in Paris, Brown(out), O(vert):
I have 3 of the gel eyeliner pencils from from Marc Jacobs and honestly, I am on the verge of finishing two of them already. That’s how much I use them 😛
Midnight in Paris 72 is a deep indigo blue liner. Brown Out 54 is a metallic bronzey brown. O(Vert) 56 is a metallic forest green.
All the three shades are from the shimmer line. These are gorgeous retractable pencils. The packaging is silver with coloured bands, makes it easier to store and locate them in the stash. They have a little sharpener in the end in case you want to sharpen them. These are quite soft pencils, so they do go blunt quite soon. I sometimes use a sharpener and sometimes don’t bother.
I prefer using them thick any way, so I don’t bother with sharpening them most of the time, but let me tell you that sharpening does lead to a lot of product wastage, so be your own judge. Since these are shimmer pencils, they are not most ideal to be used on waterline. But the shimmer is really smooth and not gritty at all. I don’t mind using them on waterline every once in a while.
The most amazing thing about these pencils is their long staying power and beautiful pigmentation. One swipe gives a bang-on color on the eyes. Also, I have worn them for good 7-8 hours and neither the shimmer has transferred nor have the eyeliners faded.
These eyeliners can also be built up to very strong pop colors and they don’t crumble when you go over the liner a few times.
These liners take some 10-15 seconds to set, so if you want to wear them smudgy eyeliners, you can do so too. But once they set, they set rock solid even on my oily eyelids. They are also free from Parabens, Sulfates , Phthalates, so good for your eyes.
These ares really impressive and absolutely gorgeous eyeliners. Sometimes the blunt tip bothers me but that does not prevent me from using these liners again and again. Highly recommend that you get some of them if you get a chance. The rainbow of colors that these eyeliners have, it only tempts you to add every single color in your collection. 🙂
Ro(Cocoa) : It is a gorgeous metallic brown eyeliner. Reminds me of MAC Teddy Eye Kohl a lot.
