Worth the Hype? Marc Jacobs Gel Eye Crayon

I’ve heard a lot about the infamous Marc Jacobs Gel Eye Crayon. I was a little doubtful about whether a £20 eyeliner is really worth my money. But while I was in Harvey Nichols the other day, I just couldn’t resist giving it a try.

I’m fairly new to the world of Marc Jacobs but so far I am loving it. I purchased the shade blacquer just because black eyeliner is probably what I wear day to day. This is a gel texture, so it’s far smoother to apply than a traditional black eye pencil. This comes in so many different shades, and there is also a glitter version of it. It’s a twist up, so no need for sharpeners. It smudges out like a dream. The only downside is that it does dry down very quickly. So once it’s on you need to work fast. Once this is on, it’s not going anywhere. I work as a nurse so this went on at 8am and came off at around 11pm and it looked exactly the same. No smudge and no depletion in color. Any makeup that survives nurse shifts is worth your money.

Pros- smooth texture, no need for a sharpener, long lasting

Cons- dries down very quickly and costly.

Worth the hype? So far I absolutely love this eye pencil. It’s an item I’m going to use everyday so if your an eyeliner wearer then I would say it’s worth the money.
