Marc Jacobs Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon in “Earthquake” Review & Swatch-
I am not much of a putting on makeup person as such (more of a hair care & skin care person) but whatever I do, I never forego my kajal & since the last few years, I have been enjoying brown instead of the regular black & after using up my favorite Maybelline one I invested in a Marc Jacobs gel eye crayon in a rich dark brown.
What Marc Jacobs Says-
Matte-not-flat. Extreme colour. Waterproof.
A gel eye crayon for a bold, matte finish.
Experience the intense colour payoff, amazing glide and 12-hour wear of Marc Jacobs’ original award-winning Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner—now re-envisioned in a bold, matte finish.
Each of the hues is glitter-free and intensified by super-rich pigment. They’re formulated to glide on smoothly for precise application, and they give you 15 seconds of play time before setting in place for wear that lasts all day – ideal for pulling off versatile eye looks.
Line to define your eyes, smudge it before it sets for an instant, smoky eye, layer as an eyeshadow base, or draw on artistic graphic liner looks. The waterproof gel formula makes it well-suited for lining the inner rim. It’s also designed with a clever sharpener, hidden in the base of the liner to allow for a precise point.
The intense, vivid hues are inspired by Marc Jacobs’ bold Resort 2017 collection.

My take on the Marc Jacobs Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon in “Earthquake”-
The packaging is a silver pencil packaging with its individual color accents with a silver cap which means you will waste product as you sharpen, especially ’cause these are so soft & buttery- but otherwise, sleek & travel-friendly.
The pigmentation is simply amazing & this glides on softer than butter, yet not fragile enough to break! Just a light swipe is enough to achieve the most saturated color!
The texture is dreamy, soft & comfortable to both apply & wear! You just glide it on & it applies easily without dragging at all.
The shade “Earthquake” is a matte, dark, rich brown which is on the warmer spectrum & looks great on all complexions any time any occasion. I have been using it non-stop much more than my usual black one 🙂
Lasting power is great & this lasts on my lids & waterline very easily through thee entire day of of 6-8 hours & even after that, I found that it gets removed cleanly with oil or oil-based cleanser, rather than any remover.
It did not irritate my sensitive eyes at all 🙂
