My favorite time of year is upon us! Limited Edition Holiday Palettes and Sets have been released! Yay! Over the next couple of weeks I will share with you what sets I have picked up so far and how they fare in my oh so noble opinion 😉 Lets kick things off with what I was most excited to receive! The Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Mini Set (AKA…The Sky-Liner Seven Piece Petite Highliner Collection)
A few months ago I received one of these minis as a Sephora perk in the color Brown Out. I instantly fell in love and that led me go and purchase a full size crayon in the color Introvert. A carefully selected color since I was paying a whopping cost of $30CAD for one of these bad boys! Needless to say, I was over the moon excited when this set was released so that I could play around with 7 new shades at a fraction of the cost at $56.00CAD for the set 🙂 (6 new shades actually since the color brown out which is part of the set, I already have)…Not complaining though!! I also love how it comes in a collectable case for easy access and storage.
Why do I love these pencils so much you ask?? Firstly, there is no denying that the colors are fabulous! The Gel texture makes application absolutely effortless and once applied, these bad boys aren’t going anywhere! Waterproof is an understatement for this product…which came to light when trying to remove from my arm after swatching. Soap and water wouldn’t even dent these!! Out came the strong makeup remover and with a few heavy handed swipes, the color was removed. With that said, when applying, assure you do any smudging right away as these dry extremely quickly not leaving much time to perfect your look. There is absolutely no need to powder over these pencils to keep them put which is awesome, since the colors are so beautiful covering them up with anything with be a travesty.
These are twist up pencils so no sharpener is required and the pencil itself is most definitely the most elegant looking pencil I have ever seen…which goes for most of the Marc Jacobs line. His packaging is above all else in my opinion.
The colors in the set as listed below seem to all be on the metallic side (Aside from the black. And the navy tends to have only a slight metallic effect.) However, these are not advertised as metallic liners so I honestly don’t know what to think of that Also, they all have shimmer in them (some more so than others) except the black which is just a classic black liner.
This Limited Edition set won’t last long so treat yourself to an early Holiday gift and pick one up today 🙂 You won’t regret it!
