With a wink and a nudge to the Rococo period which peaked in the early part of the 18th century -- think gilded everything, highly detailed/ornately carved plasterwork, etc. You can most certainly see where Mr. Jacobs' inspiration came from when he named Ro(Cocoa).
Ro(Cocoa), one of six shades, is a deep teddy (just like MAC) bear brown with the tiniest hint of shimmer. The tip is on point and if it should ever fall flat, twist up for more product and reach for the built-in sharpener conveniently hidden away within the opposite end of the pencil.
Because my eyes are set so deep, my brow area is more pronounced -- in order to avoid closing my eyes even further I try to make them appear larger by tight lining. It's been my thing as of late.
Tight lining also allows me to preserve my eyeshadow, because if I make a mistake I can tidy things up without undoing everything else and I avoided having to go back in with more eyeshadow.
The end result: my lashes appear fuller, I've also intensified the green in my hazel eyes and I think I look more awake.
The Bagful breakdown:
Total amount for Marc Jacobs Highliner (Gel Crayon) in Ro(Cocoa):
- $25.00 USD and it's now back in-stock.
Value for money spent (performance and quality):
- 9 out of 10 bags — Teddy was my first love, but Ro(Cocoa) is far more forgiving.
Would another purchase be on the horizon?:
- There were many purchases during my holiday, unfortunately I couldn't track down Marc Jacobs beauty in Singapore.
