Today I am reviewing Marc Jacobs Th(Ink) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon. First of all, heartiest thanks to our beloved writer, Kulpreet (KK). One day during our regular chats, we both came to know that we both own this beauty and haven’t reviewed it yet. She instantly asked me to review it. Thank you KK! She will be reviewing the other shade for you guys soon and I will wait for her mini review on this one. For now, let’s move on to review.
Intense color. Waterproof. Extreme wear. Make a bold statement with this extreme-wear, waterproof eyeliner. Like a gel pot eyeliner encased within a crayon, this breakthrough formula is exclusive to Marc Jacobs Beauty: a super-malleable gel eyeliner glides on smoothly for a flawless, precise application, then sets in place for all-day wear. A built-in sharpener helps mold product into a perfect point for an instantly sharp look.

My Experience with Marc Jacobs Th(Ink) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon:
With a heart stealer look, Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliners come in a silver, metallic, shiny packaging. They are gel eyeliner crayons and don’t need sharpening. I love retractable eye liners and lip liners. With simple twist up mechanism, you have a built in sharpener that gives you crisp and precise lines every time without reaching out for separate tools. The cap closes tight and the crayon is lightweight. It is safe to carry around in clutches and bags.
Texture, Finish and Fragrance:
Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Th(Ink) is a gel eye crayon. The texture is smooth, velvety and gel like. It glides on so effortless as if you are skating on a smooth surface of ice. There is zero tug or pull involved in application. It settles to a slightly glazy/satin finish as we get from good gel eyeliners. The result is same as you get from gel eyeliners applied with a brush combined with the ease of a retractable crayon liner.
For those who aren’t good at gel eye liners and eyeliner brushes (I am pointing a finger to myself), this is a blessing, truly! There is no distinguishable fragrance in Th(Ink). It doesn’t sting eyes and is safe for sensitive eyes. Also, it feels lightweight on the eyelids. The ingredient list is free of Parabens and harmful chemicals. It contains Vitamin E and rosa canina.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Th(Ink) 44 is a deep navy shade. Purely beautiful, it reminds you of a rainy sky in late evening or a feel of a dark mid-night sky. Navy Blue is my favourite color, so I can’t have enough of this beauty ever! The pigmentation is great and the swatches are of single swipe.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Th(Ink) is completely waterproof and rub proof. It is extremely long wearing and stays on for 7-8 hours on average. After that, I have noticed some even fading in the eyeliner.
Let’s summarize it in pros and cons:
Pros of Marc Jacobs Th(Ink) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon:
• A beautiful, deep navy blue shade of eyeliner

• Waterproof and rub proof as well
• A gel eye crayon
• Beautiful packaging and retractable, with a built in sharpener
• Same results as a gel eyeliner in a pot

Cons of Marc Jacobs Th(Ink) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon:
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Marc Jacobs Th(Ink) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon?
If you want to have a great experience with gel crayons, try this! I found them better than Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliners as well. I am looking forward to have another shade from the range.
PS: Sorry for I couldn’t include an EOTD; having tough time and sleepless nights with little Rayyan. Ciao! 🙂
