Marc Jacobs Beauty Matte Highliner VoxBox Review

Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to receive my second Influenster Voxbox and this time I was sent two of the new Marc Jacobs Beauty Matte Highliners in the shades 'Popular' and 'Pink Of Me'.  At first I was quite skeptical as I don't typically wear coloured eyeliner, let alone the colour pink on my eyelids much at all unless it's a very subtle shadow, but after giving these a go I can honestly say I'm now a pink fan and will be rocking it on a regular basis. I was meant to take pictures of the final look that I created with these but my lighting was so terrible all over my house that I raged and gave up. Don't judge me! :')

For those of you that don't know what Influenster is, it's an app for shoppers to test products for companies and write honest reviews in order to have a chance at receiving a free VoxBox of complimentary products from different brands to try out. You can browse through the website to be in the know of the hottest products from beauty, to homeware to pet products. It literally has everything. If you're a blogger or a youtuber, I would highly recommend signing up as the opportunities are endless and it's a great way to try out new products! The more you put into the app, the more you get back :)

Anyway, these eyeliners are so dreamy, I was very impressed. I've only ever used Marc Jacobs make up once before and that was their Velvet Noir mascara which I LOVED; so when I received these I really had no idea what to expect. I've bought eyeliners in the past that are scratchy and uncomfortable when you apply them and then they rub off over the course of a few hours so you're left with an awful smudgy mess on your lids...but these are nothing like that, I assure you. They are soft and creamy which make them super easy to use.

I applied the darker pink shade 'Popular' (which does look quite a bit darker in this picture than it actually is, damn my bad lighting, again) as I would normally do my black winged eyeliner and topped it with Urban Decay's glitter liner in the colour 'Junkshow'. I'm not gonna lie, the outcome was lovely - feminine and glittery, a pretty day look if you're into girly colours. Now I'm no make up pro as I'm sure you're aware of if you follow me on instagram, I'm average at best, but these eyeliners glided across my lids so smoothly that it made it look like I knew what I was doing! I then applied the lighter shade 'Pink Of Me' on my waterline which added a subtle touch to finish the look off. 

Not only do these highliners provide beautiful vibrant colour and easy application with their twist up action, but the product lasted all day without any smudging which I was pleasantly surprised about. It's completely waterproof and didn't even budge when I washed my face lightly, all I had to do to remove it was get my trusted miscellar water and give my face a good rub. This is such a bonus for me as I'm the type of girl that forgets I've put make up on and rubs my eyes, but even then it barely moved.

I'll definitely recreate the look and do a round two attempt at taking pictures for you guys to show the products realness on my pale complexion, but for now, you'll just have to take my word for it. These come in 25 beautiful shades at John Lewis for £20 each and the products design is so simple yet sophisticated. I will most likely be purchasing some other shades on my next pay day to have a play around so thank you Influenster for treating me, yet again, and introducing me to another product that I love.

Have you tried any of the Marc Jacobs Highliners? What did you think of them? Let me know! :) 

*I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. All opinions are my own.


  1. I was tempted to sign up to Influenster but didn't know if it would be worth it! These eyeliners look gorgeous though and I'd love to see the look you created with them!
