Frequent readers of this blog know that when it comes to eyeliners, my loyalty is akin to real-life relationship. There is no reason to fool around when you have found THE ONE; the VERY ONE in tune with your chemistry. THE ONLY ONE who won't make you cry. Ladies, hear me out... Telenovela aside, I'm talking about Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon!
Not too long ago, I introduced you to Blacquer and (Luna)tic, made you ponder (Th)ink, and rocked Ro(cocoa). With back-to-back smashing performance, an addition of one or two won't hurt the bank so to complete my birthday month of just-because-haulage, let's welcome two more shades: (Plum)age, a metallic purple, and O(vert), a semi-mettalic army green. Each retails for $25 and exclusively sold at Sephora.
Used before photographed, that's how eager I was with these beauties. The tip is normally pointed the first time but as mentioned before, it inevitably becomes round with constant use. These eyeliners are retractable so you won't get the sharp tip ever again but other than that, the consistency is the same across the board: very creamy, easy to apply, blend, and smudge along the lash line if need be. You can also this eyeliner as eyeshadow base for added vibrance. Worn over an eye primer, wear time is pretty much the whole day or in my case, twelve hours give or take. So why am I lusting over this pricey eyeliner? It's crystal-clear; this doesn't make my eyes watery at all. I can use it on my waterline without irritation. It doesn't transfer to my contact lens. I can count on it anytime, any day. Winter, spring, summer or fall.
Here are swatches of (O)vert and (Plum)age:
I used (O)vert and smudged it along my lower lash line, Blacquer on waterline, and (Plum)age along my upper lash line. Both photos were taken outdoors.
