If you love Marc Jacobs’ Fineliner Ultra-Skinny Gel Eye Crayons, then you’ll love what they just released this past summer.
The super-skinny gel pencil, which was originally released in just black and white, got a few more colours added to the gang a couple of months ago.
If you’ve never used Fineliner before, the skinny eyeliner is a super pigmented gel product that glides on your lids and stays there. The two-millimetre tip (said to be unbreakable) applies colour smoothly and sets in place for all-day wear. Since it’s so tiny, you can really get a precise line with a shock of colour.
I absolutely love the black one (Blacquer), which I received last year when they were first introduced. I usually reach for felt-tip liquid liners, so I was surprised about how much I really love this product. It has a twist up to distribute the product and it really does glide on smoothly, giving you amazing colour payoff.
The new colours in the line consist of a golden brown, (TRUFFLE)D; a berry violet, BLACQUER(BERRY); a deep evergreen, CO(VERT); a cobalt blue, CODE BLUE; and a deep smoky grey, CINDER(ELLA). What you see is what you get with these, as they go on as pigmented as they look in the package.
My favourites are the brown and purple, however, the blue and green are so beautiful and eye-catching that you’ll be itching for a special occasion to wear them. These also work great in your waterline as they set quite fast.
Although the wear is amazing on them, if you have oily eyelids you may want to put a shadow down first as I did find some of them smudged onto my lids throughout the day. Other than that though they do keep still, so much so that you may find it difficult to remove at the end of the day.
The Marc Jacobs Fineliner pencils retail for C$30 each at Sephora. They are pricey for an eyeliner, but keep in mind they are technically a gel, which usually retails for a bit more. If you’re looking for a high-quality eyeliner, this is it.
