(Earth)quake

Marc Jacobs (Earth)quake Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon ($25.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a deep brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had intense color coverage in just one pass, while the eyeliner had a smooth, creamy texture that glided across the skin without tugging or dragging. The color wore well for nine hours on my waterline and twelve hours on my lower lash line.

The formula is supposed to have “intense color payoff” with “12-hour longwear” with a “bold matte finish” that is supposed to be waterproof and “well-suited” for the waterline. The majority of the shades are very pigmented with mostly opaque to fully opaque coverage in a single pass, while the texture is creamy but dries down within ten to fifteen seconds. They wear shorter on the waterline (six to nine hours) and longer on the lower lash line (nine to twelve hours). The formula is fantastic for lining, but the one thing that makes me hesitate is that the past iterations of the liners have dried out in as little as one year (with some lasting two years or longer), though I have noticed the more shimmery shades are first to dry out.

Marc Jacobs (Brown)ie Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon ($25.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had opaque coverage in a single with a very creamy, smooth, and glide-on texture that was comfortable to use on the lower lash line and waterline. This shade wore well for eleven hours on my lower lash line and eight hours on my waterline.

(Iron)y

Marc Jacobs (Iron)y Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon ($25.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a deep, gray-leaning taupe with hints of warmer, brown undertones paired with a cream finish. The eyeliner was incredibly rich in pigmentation, while the consistency was smooth, creamy, and comfortable to apply as it did not tug. On my waterline, the color stayed on well for almost ten hours, and on my lower lash line, it lasted for a full twelve hours.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Fine(wine) Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon

Fine(wine)

Marc Jacobs Fine(wine) Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon ($25.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a deep red with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was fairly buildable, though it always seemed just shy of full coverage. I think that part of that was due to the texture, which seemed to have more slip, and I found I had better luck applying one layer, letting it dry down and set, and then a second layer to obtain the best pigmentation. The eyeliner applied comfortably and lasted for nine hours on the waterline and twelve hours on the lower lash line.

Deja Blue

Marc Jacobs Deja Blue Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon ($25.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a light sky blue with cooler, blue undertones and a cream finish. It had a stronger white base, and with how creamy it was, it looked a little streaky when applied to both the waterline and lower lash line for me. It was very brightening on the waterline, and I think “in person” it looked fine, but it didn’t appear even in close-up photos. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff with a very creamy consistency. It wore well for eight hours on my waterline and ten hours on my lower lash line.

Marc Jacobs Beauty (Grape)vine Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon

(Grape)vine

Marc Jacobs (Grape)vine Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon ($25.00 for 0.01 oz.) a dark purple with cool undertones and as atin finish. It had good color coverage in one stroke, though it wasn’t opaque. Like Fine(wine), it had more slip and took a bit longer to set, which also made it harder to build up coverage unless I waited five to ten seconds for that initial layer to dry down a bit. It was easy to apply, as it never tugged or dragged on the skin. This shade stayed on well for nine hours on the waterline and twelve hours on my lower lash line.
