Line Up

Marc Jacobs Beauty Line Up Mini Highliner Duo ($20.00 for 0.026 oz.) is a new, limited edition duo that features a matte brown (part of the permanent range) and a matte purple (exclusive to the set). The longevity of both shades was excellent, while Purple Reign could have been more pigmented and a bit creamier during application; (Earth)quake was fantastic. The set contains 0.0261 oz. worth of product, while a full-sized eyeliner is 0.0176 oz. and retails for $25.00, so the value in the set is $37.07.

(Earth)quake

(Earth)quake is a deep brown with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had opaque color coverage in one layer, which applied evenly and smoothly on my lower lash line without dragging or tugging on it. The consistency was creamy without being overly emollient or wet, so it had great glide but stayed in place. It lasted nicely for 12 hours before fading slightly on me.

Formula Overview

$25.00/0.01 oz. – $2500.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “intense color payoff” with “12-hour longwear” with a “bold matte finish” that is supposed to be waterproof and “well-suited” for the waterline. The majority of the shades are very pigmented with mostly opaque to fully opaque coverage in a single pass, while the texture is creamy but dries down within ten to fifteen seconds.

They wear shorter on the waterline (six to nine hours) and longer on the lower lash line (nine to twelve hours). The formula is fantastic for lining, but the one thing that makes me hesitate is that the past iterations of the liners have dried out in as little as one year (with some lasting two years or longer), though I have noticed the more shimmery shades are first to dry out.

Purple Reign

Purple Reign is a brighter, medium purple with cool, bluish undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which was somewhat buildable–it never reached full coverage but when worn against the lash line, it was hard to tell any lack of pigmentation from a normal viewing distance. The consistency had enough glide to apply comfortably to my lower lash line, but it seemed slightly drier than other shades in the range. It wore well for over 12 hours without migrating or thinning on me.
