Last weekend I hit the mall in a bit of a panic to hunt down a Derby hat for a party. I left the mall without a hat, but instead an Highliner Eye Crayon from Marc Jacobs. If nothing else, my eyes would look great! Right? Right. I opted for the shade Lunatic, which is a gorgeous metallic lavender/silver. Lately I’ve banned myself from picking up any new eyeshadows, but was quite smitten with the idea of an eye crayon and when swatched fell in love!
Probably the best part of this guy is how effortlessly simple it is to use with quite a lot of payoff. It’s like the lazy girl’s secret to creating an eye look in no time. And, as this is gel, it’s extremely smooth and easy to wear. My nagging complaint about many of the eye crayons I’ve tried is that I have to put pressure for them to work. With eyes being such a delicate area and sensitive to showing signs of age, dragging an eye pencil along my eye is never something I want to do. Problem solved! You can barely touch this to your eye and still get a ton of pay-off.
I’ve worn this a few times now and continue to be impressed with it’s staying power! Once it sets, it stays nicely in place for quite a long time. Perfect for a night out, but also useful in the day too. The color selection of these is really great as well. In fact, I’ve already ordered Vivid Purple and am seriously eye the browns. But truly, I was so excited about this guy to wait until I got those. I just had to let everyone know straight away how fantastic these are!
If you’re in a rush or don’t feel comfortable developing a full look with eyeshadow, this will be your savior! You can quickly sweep this along your lower lashline for some drama, or even smudge out all over your lid. You’ll be looking great in no time. These are a definite YAY from me!
Has anyone else tried these? Let me know what you think. And take a look at the full collection here.
