Marc Jacobs Holiday 2015 The Sky-Liner Highliner Gel Crayon Set ($48.00 for 0.07 oz.) includes seven, travel-sized eyeliners; two shades are limited edition and exclusive to the set, while five are from the permanent range. I don’t see it on Sephora currently, but it is still available through Marc Jacobs directly. I was really disappointed by the set, because every single eyeliner was dry as a bone when swatched to the point where just trying to swatch it resulted in all but one of the eyeliner’s tips breaking off. After the tip broke, the eyeliners were soft and creamy, which is why it’s so frustrating that the exterior coating to the pencil is so bad that it completely impedes the product’s performance. The one eyeliner that didn’t break still remains firmer and harder to use after three uses. This makes it harder to rate, because unless you break off the tip, they’re difficult and poor-performing, but since by the nature of just how firm they were, they inevitably broke (without me trying at all; in fact, I was trying NOT to!) and were much better. I’ve found that the full-sized, permanent formula has similar issues where some shades are creamy and easy-to-apply from the get-go and others are drier, firmer (and some have never gotten better for me). This inconsistency is the worst part about an otherwise impressive formula that wears nine to ten hours and comes in an assortment of more unique shades (some are more typical shades, of course). I didn’t have such significant texture issues with last year’s set. That being said, you will find the scores reflecting that these are not of the same quality as others I have tried (primarily in the overall quality and texture scores).
