Marc Jacobs Beauty has new versions of their popular Highliner Gel Eyeliners - this time in a long-wearing matte formula. These eyeliner pencils are waterproof gel crayons that deliver bold matte color with a promise of up to 12 hours of wear. The formula feels soft, glides on quite smoothly on the skin, and sets quickly - if you want to smudge these you need to be really quick - and once set, they are superlonglasting. The pencils come with sharpeners at one end, so the eyeliners can be easily sharpened for a a precise application. Scroll on for swatches.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eyeliners are a range of long-wearing matte pencil liners in twist-up packaging (with a sharpener included) and come in a bunch of different shades from paler pastels to regular browns and fun red and wines - what's not to love about that? These eyeliners are truly longlasting - I know because I had a tough time getting the swatches off the back of my hand - and I love the soft matte finish. I can never have enough browns, purple, and dark blues, and I think the reddish wine shade would make for some interesting eye makeup looks, especially when smudged. These eyeliners have a soft, smooth texture that makes them easy to apply and blend (though you do have to be really, really fast about it), and they can be used for sharper defined lines as well as smudged into smokey eye looks, either on their own or layered. Overall, a great pick for for anyone who loves liners and/or easy long-wearing eye makeup products.
