This month I was lucky enough to receive the Marc Jacobs Beauty Matte Highliner Vox Box to review. Not only was this my first Vox Box, these were also the first products from Marc Jacobs that I’ve ever tried.
First things first, I’d like to disclose that I received these product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. That being said, this review is 100% honest and all opinions expressed are my own.
The box itself is really chic and branded with the classic Marc Jacobs logo.
In my VoxBox I received two full-sized Marc Jacobs Beauty Matte Gel Highliners in the shades “(Pop)ular ” and “Pink of Me”.
As well as products, I also got a booklet which shows 4 different ways that you can wear the Highliners which I’ve found really helpful as I don’t normally wear such bright eyeliner colours!
The Matte Highliners retail for £20.00 each and you can buy them at John Lewis both online and instore.
The formula of these eyeliners is really strong. They’re easy to apply and the colour just glides on like a crayon. “Pink of Me” blended really well for me so I think these would work well if you were trying to create a smoky eye with the darker shades.
In terms of lasting power, I applied it at around 3:30pm and it was still perfectly in place by the time I got home at 10pm.
I opted to use the shade “(Pop)ular” to line my lid and do something that roughly resembles a wing. I then used “Pink of Me” underneath my eyes and in my lower waterline. These two colours complimented each other and I found that by using “Pink of Me” in my lower waterline, it really opened up my eyes and made them look bigger.
(Please allow that I’m truly terrible at doing my eyebrows)
All in all, I think the Marc Jacobs Highliners are excellent quality. If I were buying them for myself, I’d choose darker colours but that’s just down to personal preference. Pink doesn’t compliment red hair! That being said, I’m glad I got the opportunity to experiment with colours that I wouldn’t usually buy.
I would definitely consider buying more Marc Jacobs Beauty products in the future and I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to try the Highliners out.
