Marc Jacobs Matte Highliner Gel

Gel Eyeliner, what’s so special about that? Join me for a quick review of Marc Jacobs Matte Highliner Gel Crayon.As usual this post will talk about the actual product, the packaging, and a few helpful usage tips.

The Marc Jacobs Matte Highliner Gel Crayon, practically melts, on to the eye and is totally matte. No tugging and struggling to apply. I seriously didn’t realize what I was missing when it came to high-end eyeliner. I confidently say to you, I loved using this.

If you have the place to go, you can always opt for the graphic eyeliner Highliner look, aka a cut crease from the 70’s.
