It was not that long ago that I decided to sign up to Influenster, 6 weeks ago to be exact, after seeing like-minded bloggers receiving their own VOXBOX’s containing great products from high end brands to review and keep. Like many other applications and sites, I assumed that Influenster would be the same – that I would try and do all of the ‘snaps’ (survey questions) and nothing would come of it – I was wrong!
I had put a lot of effort into updating and creating my Influenster profile, completing all of my snaps and reviewing and uploading pictures for various products. Influenster is a much needed (and loved) source of information on all products you could possibly desire which, I myself have used to get other reviewers expert opinions to influence my own product purchases.
Imagine my surprise (and jubilation) upon receiving my first survey via email for completion and later the email to confirm I would be receiving my very first VOXBOX! Even more so to learn that I was going to be receiving these gorgeous Marc Jacobs Matte Highliner Gel Eye Crayons!
The two highliners I received were in the shades ‘Deja Blue’ and ‘Pink of Me’, both of which are gorgeous matte pastel shades. Deja Blue is a beautifully light, pastel, baby blue and Pink of Me is a pastel baby pink shade – when worn together, it is difficult not to imagine the old rhyme…
Pink and blue will never do, because all the boys will wink at you
These matte finish gel crayons are fantastic for precision ‘drawing’, they glide onto the skin seamlessly revealing their hyper pigmented shades after which they dry very quickly to reveal a smudge and water proof look (15 seconds play time before drying).
Available in 12 different shades, these matte highliner gel crayons are available from John Lewis and retail for £20 a piece. Both of the shades I received would look great on various skin tones due to their intense pigmentation and I am certain that the other ten would be no different. I would highly recommend going out and grabbing some for yourself as they are extremely versatile and fun to play with. They can be used around the eye to create some incredibly artistic looks; are perfectly safe and suited for within the waterline and can be smudged beneath the eye for a gorgeous smoky appearance.
These Marc Jacobs Matte Highliner Gel Eye Crayons are housed in a convenient wind up pencil (not unlike a retractable crayon) and have a handy little sharpener on the end which pulls off and can be used to sharpen the tip of your crayon for expert precision.
I had fun playing with these two liners that I received complimentary, courtesy of Influenster and Marc Jacobs Beauty and created an 80’s reminiscent look with these vibrant colours.

Thank you so much to Influenster, Marc Jacobs and John Lewis for sending me these awesome highliners and turning a goth girl into a disco queen.
