I looooove this eyeliner too!! And really, really want to try some of the more bright and colorful options! I only have black and brown... boring lol. Thanks for this review!!

Haha, I'm actually glad I got the brown option because I'd have no idea how to use the colorful shades ???? They do look gorgeous though, and the pigmentation is incredible!

Haha, so funny! Love how you described each liner. I absolutely love anything MJ. I have two of the black shade and it is actually the only pencil liner I currently have in my stash and currently using. It is a holy grail for me as well. Excellent review. xx

Hehe, glad you liked it! I definitely want the black color, and maybe a few lighter shades for highlighting - I can't get enough of the gorgeous formula!

The shade Earthquake is stunning indeed and the gel formulation sounds right up my street: smudges and harsh applications are the two reasons why I practically never wear eye pencils/eyeliners! Lovely review!

So glad you liked it! This is definitely not your typical pencil eyeliner (in a good way)!

Hey Jenny! You write such funny and informative reviews, totally in love with your blog. And the little GIF action? Superb! :-D I am really curious to try these new eyeliners now that you have recommended them!

i was about to ask whether or not you have tried the tom ford eyeliner but then i realized this is a gel crayon eyeliner while the tom ford one is a liquid so that'd be an unfair comparison. still, out of curiosity, have you tried the tom ford's liquid liner? i heard so many beauty youtubers rave about it and says that it makes doing cat liner super easy and fast! my holy grail gel pot eyeliner is still the maybelline one because it's so black and rich and pigmented (also because marc jacobs is expensive and i'd rather shop from the drugstore section) the only downside to gel pot liner is that they dry quite fast. for crayon gel liner though, i haven't found one that i love. ( i might try one from Nyx next)

anyway, back to the topic. i love how the packaging of this marc jacobs liner looks. it's probably nothing special because well...it's a crayon so what do you expect but i really like how sleek it looks! the colors you got are really cute too. gotta love the baby pink one even though i don't see myself wearing colored eyeliners (i mainly go for brown on daily basis). i also love how you described your relationship with all your eyeliners and compare them to boyfriends HAHAHA that's hilariously entertaining! the dollywink liquid liner is my favorite liquid liner though. i tried it and i fell in love with it and have always relied on it ever since.

omg your description for the revlon liquid liner :)) i LOL-ed so hard at the metaphor. i never think revlon would do good when it comes to eyeliners though. they're good with lip products but liners? don't think so. i've never tried their liquid liner but i tried their gel one and it's not as smooth as maybelline's or loreal's.

I honestly want the entire Tom Ford makeup collection but goodness they're expensive D: I'm not that great with liquid liners myself so I have a feeling I won't like it as much either :/ I actually bought a new dolly wink liner during my Tokyo trip last summer just so I have a liquid liner on hand in case, but it's definitely my least reached for eyeliner.

I've kind of given up on gel liner in pots because they're such a hassle and they always dry up before I finish them -_- Didn't know NYX had crayon gel liners, but I'm curious how they'll compare with the MJ ones now!

Glad you found the comparison entertaining! Yeah, the Revlon one was so bad I tossed that in the trash after my first use (thank goodness it was a PR sample). Like why can't they just make a normal liquid liner instead of trying to reinvent the wheel?
