Marc Jacobs Beauty The Sky Liner Petite Highliner Collection ($45) is a new limited edition set of Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon Eyeliners that was launched with the Marc Jacobs Beauty Holiday 2014 Collection.
If you’re unlikely to use full size pencils or you just want a selection of the Highliner Pencils in a variety shades versus purchasing a single one this is a nice set to indulge in especially if you’re new to the Marc Jacobs Beauty brand or perhaps even a lover of the brand and just wanting more shades of this great eyeliner.
Take a peek!
The Marc Jacobs Beauty The Sky Liner Petite Highliner Set includes 7 Highliner Gel Crayons, two of which, Midnight in Paris and Sunset, that are exclusive to this set. If you’re a lover of this eyeliner formula it’s always nice to get exclusive shades but on the other hand they are smaller so if you end loving one or both of the exclusive shades you’ll have no way to restock when you’ve used it up! You’ll have to leave it up to the Marc Jacobs gods to re-release that shade at some point and that’s never fun!
The set comes in a hard shell case which you can use for storage. It actually fits several lipsticks nicely or if you want you can create a little makeup kit inside of it by tucking a blush, lipstick, gloss, etc…it’s lightweight and travels nicely as the lid remains snug in place. Or of course, you can leave the eyeliners inside to store them. The packaging is understated and elegant and even though the case is plastic it still has a nice lacquered, expensive look to it.
I already have a few of the full size Highliner Gel Crayons and like them a lot. They are quite long wearing on my drier eyes and remain strong without fading, smearing, or flaking. All the shades in this collection were quite creamy and pigmented but some of full size shades I have aren’t as pigmented as I would like. But there aren’t any issues with this set….all the colors were quite gorgeous. Creamy texture, a hint of a sparkle in some colors, a few metallics, even a perfect creamy black for water lining work.
The liners are a twist up design so no need for a sharpener. One thing that deserves mentioning is the liners are not labeled with their shade name which was a little irritating to me. Update: The named are located under the cap, just remove it and you’ll find the name located on the top of the barrel after the cap is removed. Phew!

I realize there will be tons of different eyeliner sets available as we had deeper into the season, many of which will be cheaper with more variety. However, those who prefer more high end makeup will likely adore the Marc Jacobs Beauty The Sky Liner Petite Highliner Set and think it a very nice value!
