MARC JACOBS The Sky-Liner Petite Highliner Collection


Marc Jacobs Beauty The Sky-Liner Petite Highliner Collection retails for $45 USD ($56 CAD) and contains seven deluxe-sized Highliner Gel Eye Crayons (7 x 0.01 oz.) The set is limited edition and two of the shades are exclusive. It is said to be "a dazzling, seven-piece set of petite, waterproof, [long-wearing, intensely pigmented] Highliner Gel eye crayons in an array of bestselling and new, limited-edition shades, luxuriously adorned in an exclusive Marc Jacobs collectible case."

Blacquer is described as a black.
Brown(out) is described as a bronze with shimmer. 
Midnight in Paris is described as a inky indigo blue. 
O(vert) is described as a forest green. 
(Plum)age is described as a vivid purple. 
Sunset is described as a golden bronze shimmer. 
Th(ink) is described as a deep navy. 
"Five of Marc’s best-selling Highliner shades and two brand new, exclusive colors come together to augment the signature shade of the season: Midnight in Paris. From the luminous golden bronze shimmer of Sunset, to the magnetic inky, indigo blue of Midnight in Paris, these breakthrough gel-in-a-crayon eyeliners—exclusive to Marc Jacobs Beauty—were designed to give eyes dazzling color with smooth, precise application that sets in place for all-day wear. The ultimate indulgence for any beauty lover, this covetable set is housed within a pristine, exclusive tin that will live in your collection long after the pencils are enjoyed. Let eyes take the main stage this season with this versatile assortment of Highliners and elevate your eye looks to new heights."
The full-sized liners regularly retail for $25 USD ($30 CAD) and contain 0.5 g of product. The deluxe-sizes in the set are 0.37 g each. With that said, you're getting to try 7 pencils for basically the price of two regular, full-sized liners.
Blacquer is a dark, true black with neutral undertones and a creamy finish. The formula was creamy, smooth, fully opaque and glided-on easily without tugging or pulling at the skin. It was intensely pigmented in a single swipe and lasted +10 hours on my lashline before showing noticeable wear. (5/5)
Brown(out) is a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a golden metallic finish. The formula was creamy, smooth, opaque and glided-on easily without tugging or pulling at the skin. It was fully pigmented in a single swipe and lasted +9 hours on my lashline before showing noticeable wear. (5/5)
Midnight in Paris is a dark, navy blue with cool undertones and a metallic finish. This shade is limited-edition and exclusive to the set. The formula was lightly creamy, smooth, mostly opaque and glided-on easily without tugging or pulling at the skin. It was mostly pigmented in a single swipe, but buildable to an opaque coverage. Midnight in Paris lasted +9 hours before showing noticeable wear. (5/5)
O(vert) is a medium-dark, green olive with warm undertones and a metallic finish. The formula was creamy, smooth, mostly opaque and glided-on easily without tugging or pulling at the skin. It was mostly pigmented in a single swipe, but builldable to an opaque coverage. O(vert) lasted +9 hours before showing noticeable wear. (5/5)
(Plum)age is a medium-dark, purple with warm undertones and a metallic finish. The formula was creamy, mostly opaque and glided-on easily without tugging or pulling at the skin. The texture wasn't as smooth due to the higher frost content in the liner. It applied mostly even and pigmented in 3-4 swipes and lasted +9 hours before showing noticeable wear. (4/5)
Sunset is a light-medium, copper orange with warm undertones and a metallic finish. This shade is limited-edition and exclusive to the set. The formula was lightly creamy, smooth, mostly opaque and glided-on easily without tugging or pulling. It was mostly pigmented in a single swipe, but was buildable to a more opaque coverage. Sunset lasted +9 hours before showing noticeable wear. (5/5)
Th(ink) is a dark, blue indigo with cool undertones and a metallic finish. The formula was creamy, mostly opaque and glided-on easily without tugging or pulling at the skin. It was pigmented in a single swipe and incredibly easy to build. Th(ink) lasted +10 hours before showing noticeable wear. (5/5) 
Overall, the formula is very nice and you are getting a good deal by purchasing this set. While some of the shades do take a few layers and some building to achieve a fully opaque, intensely pigmented coverage, these pencils are long-lasting, smudge-proof, budge-proof and they hold up against humidity and water. This set is definitely worth checking out whether you're gifting, trying out the liners for the first time or a long-time fan who is eager to get their hands on the exclusive shades!
