So, if I’m to be perfectly honest, the new Marc Jacobs Beauty line hasn’t been knocking my socks off. If I wore socks that is. They aren’t flying off my feet, at any rate. In fact, I’ve been rather underwhelmed by almost everything I’ve tried, so I haven’t even felt like talking about them (I know, I should and I’ll get round to it – just don’t hold your breathe lest you turn blue) So, the day I picked up the Magic Marc’er Precision Pen Waterproof Eyeliner, I had no expectations. Ok, I lie. I did. I expected it to be another disappointment.
But you know, someone needs to find my socks, because I’ve finally found something pretty impressive from the MJB line! 😀
For now, this liquid eyeliner comes in just 1 shade – Blacquer – which is touted to be the blackest black and to have extreme wear. I must say, they are accurate on all counts. I haven’t been wearing liquid eyeliner a lot, because I’m just not very good at controlling the pen. You know how it is.
You hold the liner pen with your shaky hands, draw a shaky line, try to rectify it and end up with eyeliner all over your lid, or a line thicker than Cleopatra’s. I’m just not good at it. But I have to say that this Marc Jacobs one, whilst hardly “magic” is relatively easy to use, draws a lovely dark black line and stays put all day. All. Damned. Day! No smudges, no running, no fading. Colour me impressed! 😀
