Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon in Th(ink) Deep Navy

Today's post is on Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon in Th(ink) Deep Navy.  This was one of my many purchases at Sephora last year, along with the Genius Gel Foundation and Lip Gel

As I have said in my earlier reviews, I love the simplicity of the box with the bold writing.  I feel like it makes you instantly know that this is a luxury product. 

All of the eyeliners are colour coded with the corresponding shade which is great if you have a few of them in your collection.

The colour Th(ink) is a beautiful alternative to black which is why I choose it over Blacquer, the black version.  This is a twist up eyeliner so no sharpener required but I'll go into that more in a second.


The eyeliner is creamy and smooth, therefore gliding easily over your skin.  The thing that impressed me the most is the longevity of it.  I swatched it on one of my many trips to the store and for quite a bit of time afterwards I literally couldn't remove it from the back of my hand.

The down side for me is because it's so soft and creamy, combined with the face it doesn't need sharpening, I can't get a thin precise line with it.  I realise I could keep it in the fridge or something but I really feel like I need a proper point on it to use it how I want.  

To be brutally honest, I probably wouldn't repurchase it.  I love it, the shade is gorgeous, it glides on but as I can't really get a precise application it ends up looking like a bit of a mess and within a moment or two it sets like no other so you then can't go back and smudge it.  

I would however say that if you're used to using this type of product, go for it and purchase one in whatever shade.  It's the application for me that lets it down but someone with a lot of experience will absolutely adore the colour selection and amazing staying power.
