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.

If I had to try something by MJ it wouldn’t be those pencil. At that price it has to be flawless! Beauty Ody(sea) is a lovely color though!

I love these, Christine! What a beautiful duo! Thanks for the review & I hope the other new ones are coming as well! Ody(sea), lovely! And Mari(gold) is just to beautiful and cute to pass! For my birthday, I’m taking donations! 😉 Haha!

I would like to recommend NYX Retractable Eye Liner in Aqua Green (MPE03) as a dupe for Ody(sea). I had my eye on the Marc Jacobs one for a while since the color would be fun for summer, but was reticient to spend $25 on an eyeliner that I probably wouldn’t use that much in the end. The NYX one is similar albeit it may be a bit greener. However, for those people who want to save $5, it may be worth it.

I really love how MJ Gel Eye Crayons have shades that make the unique. There’s always something about the color that makes it hard to find an exact dupe. I really love Ody(sea) and Intro(vert)… the names are cool too! I’m always so tempted to pick one up, maybe next time there’s a Sephora sale….

I swatched these in-store last night and was super impressed! The lasting power was amazing— had liner on my hand much of the night, despite efforts to remove 🙂 I bought Stone Fox, prompted by your review earlier this week!

Pretty! <3 Total sucker for teal/turquoise eyeliner here! Still, curous as I am about Marc Jacobs stuff, I have easy access to Urban Decay here 😉 The sephora eyeliners and Tarina Tarantino are next on my list for eyeliner pencils!
