Marc Jacobs Beauty O(vert) (56) & Obey-ge (66) Highliner Gel Eye Crayons

For summer, Marc Jacobs Beauty released a slew of new shades of his Highliner Gel Eye Crayon ($25.00 for 0.01 oz.). I reviewed a few here and here. I recently received two more shades that I hadn’t purchased already, so here they are! (Which also means I, unfortunately, caved and bought the three I was missing, because they’re like Pokemon–you gotta collect ’em all! Stay tuned!) If you’re unfamiliar with the formula, it’s a pencil eyeliner that is supposed to be “waterproof, long-wearing, [and have] color-intense payoff.”

Stila Canary, Deep Fuchsia, Violet Smudge Stick Eyeliners

Stila Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is supposed to be an intensely pigmented, long-wearing, and waterproof eyeliner. It’s a twist-up eyeliner, so no sharpening is required, and in general, the formula wears eight hours on me and has a creamy, glide-on consistency makes it easy to apply. The major variable with these is pigmentation–many are nicely pigmented and easily buildable to opaque color in two layers but some are sheerer.

Stila Mint Julep, Cobalt, Ultramarine Smudge Stick Eyeliners

Stila Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is touted as a richly pigmented, long-wearing, waterproof eyeliner. It’s a formula I really like for its creamy, glide-on consistency that doesn’t tug or pull at the lash line, diverse shade range, and generally good wear. Some shades are more pigmented than others, though, as you’ll note below. I actually bought several more shades during their most recent sale after trying some of their recently released shades, so you’ll see more reviews over the next couple of months as I work my way through them (I went overboard).

Marc Jacobs Beauty Ody(sea) & Mari(gold) Highliner Gel Eye Crayons

Marc Jacobs Beauty Ody(sea) (62) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon
Marc Jacobs Beauty Ody(sea) (62) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon

Marc Jacobs Beauty Ody(sea) (62) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon ($25.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “teal green.” It’s a medium-dark teal that leans just slightly green with a pearly sheen. It had so-so color payoff in a single stroke, but it was buildable to mostly opaque color in two to three passes. The consistency was lightly creamy and didn’t tug on the lash line. It wore well for nine hours on my lower lash line before starting to fade.
You might think it’s similar to Intro(vert), but Intro(vert) is much greener. Tarina Tarantino Spark of Envy (P, $15.00) is darker. Sephora Collection Fairytale (P, $9.00) is also darker. Make Up For Ever #52L (LE, $19.00) is darker, less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Mari(gold) (70) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon ($25.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “golden peach.” It’s a medium, yellow gold with warm, orange undertones and a pearly, almost metallic, sheen. It had good pigmentation in one pass, and it was able to build to fully opaque color in two passes. The consistency was creamy and glided on without pulling on the skin. This shade lasted for nine hours before starting to thin. Chanel Ambre Dore (911) (P, $30.00) is lighter, less yellow. Urban Decay Goldmine (P, $19.00) is lighter. Chanel Vegas Gold (LE, $28.00) is similar–slightly yellower. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
