Maybe you want to spend a little money on yourself for a change. Or maybe you just want to get holiday gifts you can actually use (and use up, so they don’t clutter up your home for years to come). I added this creme to powder eyeshadow stick to my list last year, and I love it so much. Even better, if you shop Julep today, use code HALFFUN to get 50 percent off everything, including these eyeshadow sticks.
I don’t normally splurge on myself, but I figured I might as well get something I want and can use for the holidays. This eye shadow crayon fits the bill. I love the simple application. The color rolls up like a lipstick and glides on with no need for a separate applicator, making it a great choice for travel, too. Instead of using up color on a brush, it all goes directly where you want it, around your eyes. The color lasts all day, and I never need to reapply unless I want a more dramatic look. And the stick itself lasts, too. I ended up with two, and have used mine three to five days a week every week and still haven’t had to break out the second stick yet.
Not sure what color to try? You can’t go wrong with champagne shimmer. It brightens tired eyes during the day and looks extra bright for evening outings. But if you want to mix it up a bit, or even have some options for day and evening, the crayon comes in 20 different shades. Best of all, Julep products contain no parabens or sodium laureth sulfate (SLS), and comes from cruelty free sources. So even though my beloved Skin Deep Database doesn’t rank their products yet, I trust them. But I expect you would like to decide for yourselves, so Julep includes a complete ingredient list of every shade of their products on their website.
