Marc Jacobs Beauty Blacquer Currant Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon ($25.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a muted, darker plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium pigmentation, which was difficult to build up as the product pushed itself around rather than layered evenly. The texture felt waxier with a little more slip than past shades have for me in this formula. The color lasted for eight hours before fading noticeably, which was shorter than usual for this formula as well.

Experience the intense color payoff, amazing glide, and 12-hour wear of Marc Jacobs Beauty’s original award-winning Highliner Gel Eye Crayon eyeliner—now re-envisioned in a bold, matte finish. Each of the hues are glitter-free and intensified by super-rich pigment. They’re formulated to glide on smoothly for precise application, and they give you 15 seconds of play time before setting in place for wear that lasts all day, making it ideal for pulling off versatile eye looks. Line to define your eyes, smudge it before it sets to impart an instant, smoky eye, layer as an eyeshadow base, or draw on artistic graphic liner looks. Its waterproof gel formula makes it well-suited for lining the inner rim. It’s designed with a clever sharpener, hidden in the base of the liner to allow for a precise point.
