I’m always so excited to get a box from Influester, but when I found out it was the Marc Jacobs Highliner box I was ecstatic! For those of you who don’t know, Influenster is a website that will send you free products based on reviews and your social influence. It’s such a great and easy website to use, and so rewarding when you receive products to try!
Marc Jacobs is a brand that I never thought I would ever try because it was so high-end, so getting the chance to try something is so exciting! I received two Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliners* in the shades (Earth)quake, a dark brown and Over(night), a deep blue. (Earth)quake has gotten a lot of use from me because a dark brown eyeliner is right up my makeup alley, but I haven’t quite found a use for (Over)night just yet because blue is a little out of my comfort zone.
Super sleek with plain silver packaging. I like how the color of the pencil matches the color of the liner, making it super easy to pick out of my collection to use. I love that the packaging is simple, beautiful, and high-quality. The pencil also comes with a super convenient twist-up, and a sharpener at the bottom of the pencil.
This is a matte pencil with a gel consistency. It dries down quickly, it claims 15 seconds but I have yet to actually time it. Very easy to work with and stays where it is supposed to. I find that it works well, and lasts a long time on my tight line, but also looks great on the lash line. It does claim to be waterproof, but I have not tried this out, but it does last a very long time.
Had I not gotten this VoxBox, I probably would have never tried out this product, but I’m so glad that I did. I’ve really only used drugstore eyeliners, but these you can really tell the difference in quality and product. The eyeliner is so good! I really wish I had received a different color than a blue, but I just need to find a way to use it! For $25 a pencil, it’s definitely worth the splurge for such a good product. I will definitely look into purchasing more in the future!
