Pro Tips

How to Get the Illusion of a Bigger Eye
Define with Highliner in Blacquer to emphasize the lash line. Line the waterline with Fineliner in (Big)eyes! for a bright, wide-eyed appearance.

Brighten and enlarge eyes by applying In The Buff! at the inner corners of the eyes and along the waterline. You can also use it as an impromptu luminizer to highlight the temples, brow bone and the high part of the cheekbones. 

How to Get the Illusion of Thicker Lashes
For the illusion of thicker, fuller lashes, run Highliner Waterproof Gel Eye Crayon in Blacquer along the upper lashline, then apply two coats of O!Mega Lash Volumizing Mascara.

How to Sharpen Highliner
Highliner contains a built-in sharpener at its base: To use, pop out the black sharpener and twist the tip of Highliner to sharpen. You can also sharpen Highliner against a tissue to form a precise point. Always close the cap tightly to keep Highliner's supple glide and long wear. 

Other Artist Pro Tips
- Highliner takes about 15 seconds to set, so if you work quickly with a small smudging brush, you can create an instant smoky eye with Blacquer, or any other smoky Highliner shade, such as Ro(cocoa) or (Stone)fox. 

- Use Highliner as an eyeshadow base by blending it across the entire lid. Layer it under Style Eye-Con No. 7 Plush Eyeshadow to create dimensional color.

Marc's Inspiration

Marc was inspired by the idea of a woman getting ready to go out at night, sitting in the lobby of a chic hotel, and sweeping on her eyeliner for an instantly irresistible look. 

"Eyes are everything to me. I have no problem with the rest of the face.  I just think eyes are so expressive.  You can say a lot with your eyes.  The eyes stimulate the other person's imagination." - Marc Jacobs

Highliner is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 74.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantabulous! The highliner pencil is a dream! It’s so rich and creamy, glides on perfectly, and it stays on all evening. I also like that it does come off easily with makeup remover. The deep violet was gorgeous (as is the black, which I had tried before). I had so many compliments on my eyes when I wore it, and it was the pencil that really made my green eye color stand out. I highly recommend this product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stays on! I have never found a waterline black creamy pencil that didn’t smear,rub-off or smudge until now. Even bought a nude for the tear area to open my eyes. Goes on creamy, dries like powder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, but wanted more pigment This product glides on so easily and is easy on my sometimes sensitive eyes, however, I purchased the Orange Crush shade, and I like it, but I do wish it was brighter and more pigmented. It doesnt show up very strong on the waterline, but I do like the color for the upper lash line or to use as an eyeshadow base and the quality is A-1. I also got 2 of the matte highliner pencils and they are both 5 stars for me! Will be trying more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highliner gel eye crayon in the buff 80 I loved the MJ highliner gel eye crayon in the buff 80 CHAMPAGNE SHIMMER, it glides on smoothly on the eye and the best liner for the inner rim of waterline and doesn't bleed or run, is long-wear, and has a bold pigment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good eyeliner I got the Highliner in In The Buff! which is a metallic gold, which I love. I gave it 4 out of 5 b/c its not a super strong/pigmented gold eyeliner if that's what you're looking for. Also you twist it for the product to come out instead of sharpening the pencil, and sometimes I struggle with that, like maybe its not as steady in the casing.
