I’ve been super excited to write this post because I have never tried anything from such a prestigious beauty brand before and I this was my very first Voxbox from Influenster. These are the Marc Jacobs Highliners, they are a matte gel eye crayon (basically a kohl eyeliner pencil). For my British readers you can purchase Marc Jacobs from John Lewis and I believe there are a couple of other places too. These eyeliners retail for £20 each, I wouldn’t normally pay such a high price tag for a pencil, but I do think these are worth it and if you keep reading you will find out why.

I’m going to start off with how amazing the packaging is. Both the box that it comes in and the pencil itself feel really high quality, which I think you should expect when they’re this expensive. On each pencil you can see what the colour is on the outside and that’s super handy when you’re looking for a specific colour in your drawer. I really appreciate that the pencil is retractable, so no product is lost when sharpening another thing you should just expect with an expensive eyeliner. The formula of these literally blew me away, they are incredibly pigmented first of all. They glide on like a dream, there is literally no dragging or dryness with these and they are ,as their name suggests, a matte finish. The best thing about these is that they don’t budge, after doing these swatches they wouldn’t come off or smudge until I used a cleanser. For some people this could be a downside if you like to use a kohl pencil to smudge creating a smoky look because you can’t really do that with these.
Overall I’m so impressed with these and if you are looking for a budge-proof eyeliner then I would really recommend these. I haven’t tried an eyeliner that has really impressed me quite like these, I don’t even use eyeliner that often, but they make me what to use them because they are really great. I know the price tag is quite high, so if you have any recommendations of a more affordable eyeliner that you really rate then let me know in the comments. Also let me know if you have tried these because I’d love to know what you think of these highliners.
