Marc Jacobs Beauty is a luxury beauty brand I have wanted to try for SO long, not surprisingly I was very excited when I received two shades of their NEW Highliners in a box from Influenster! I thought it was about time I shared my thoughts on these beauties with you all.
Marc Jacobs Beauty claim the highliners are like a gel pot eyeliner incased within a crayon, giving intense waterproof colour with extreme wear.
There are 26 shades in the range, which includes every day wearable shades and some bright pops of colour. I received the shades the Earthquake (a very wearable dark brown) and Deja Blue (a pale powder blue). I tend to stick to black eyeliner, so this made me excited to do something different with my makeup.
The texture of the Highliners is really impressive. It glides across the slide very smoothly so it does not tug on the skin at all, which it great when application involves the delicate eye area. The formula is creamy but doesn’t move about on the skin.
In the past I have always had issues with applying eyeliner to my water line, as it always seems to disappear after an hour or two. I have loved using the shade Deja Blue in my water line to brighten my eyes, and it really helps make me look more awake. I was skeptical as to whether this would stand the test of time on my water lines, but I am pleased to say it does last very well. I wore this on a day I went to University for 6 hours, and on the drive home it was still noticeable on my water lines (albeit not as bright as on first application, but still!).
The formula can prove tricky to remove, due to it’s long lasting and waterproof properties. But I have found that using an oil-based makeup remover does the trick with ease. My eyes can be sensitive to waterproof products, but I have not had this problem at all with the MJB highliners.
The MJB Highliners retail for £20, so they aren’t the most budget friendly eye liners but I think for those of you who wear eyeliner on a daily basis I would highly recommend trying these. The formula is better than any other pencil liner I have previously tried, and I have never had an eyeliner last so well on my eyes before.
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
