Crowdtap Mission: Marc Jacobs Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Review

Friday, September 1, 2017

I always loved receiving makeup freebies to test and review. Today, this was extra special because I was able to get a free high-end brand product - Marc Jacobs Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon. I can't believe I got approved in this Crowdtap mission! (Happy Dance!)

Crowdtap is one of my favorite platforms in getting free stuff. I already got quite a few free products from them to test and review. And this is my 4th makeup sample mission. I also already got $55 worth of Amazon gift cards while I have only been a member for 5 months.😊 So, if you are not a member of this site yet, it's time to sign up and start getting those freebies! Sign up here: Crowdtap Sign Up.

Anyway, going back to the product itself. I received 2 full-sized products in 2 colors: Earth(Quake) 41 & Pink of Me 59.

I loved how the 2 Highliners were put in a simple yet elegant black box.

The Highliners have a twist up design and a cleverly hidden sharpener at the base of the liner, making it easy to use and carry around without the need of an extra sharpener. This little sharpener also gives you a chance to shape your liner in a 'point that's as precise as you desire.' 

Both shades have an intense color pay off as promised and have a creamy texture and rich pigmentation with a bold matte finish. I love the fact that it's glitter-free as I am not a big fan of glitter.😁 It dries out as quick as 15 seconds so you have to be careful not to mess up or you have to do your eye makeup all over again given that this is a long-wearing and water proof eyeliners. Once it's set, it'll stay for a long time without smudging and budging!😂 But on the other hand, the formula of this highliners glides on smoothly letting you make a precise application in the first place. 😄

The Earth(Quake) 41 color is a dark brown shade with warm undertones. I think this color suits me best and become my instant favorite among the two.

While this shade can be worn for almost every occasion, the Pink of Me 59 color that is a warm pink shade, can be a little tricky to use, especially for me with a slightly dark skin color.😅 I don't feel good with lighter shades of eye liners. But I think it turned out to be just fine on me, right? 😃

The highliners have a decent amount of product. But if you decide to regularly use it in full blown (doing an intricate, artistic graphic liner looks) it might not be enough for 1 month.😁 It has 0.01 oz that retails for $25.

Maximum length

Overall, I like this new Marc Jacobs Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon and would love to try their other shades. They currently have 12 shades available.
