This was my first Julep purchase, but I don't think it will be my last. I usually wear only pressed-powder eyeshadow. This time, though, I wanted a cream, stick, or pencil, for a quick, easy, one-and-done shadow application, with no primer necessary on my very oily lids. And I wanted a matte taupe grey. And I wanted cruelty-free. With all of these specifications, I asked the MUA board for recommendations, and was steered toward this.It's ideal! Stone is a beautifully smooth well-pigmented satin-matte warm gray that looks gray, not blue, on me. All I do is dust a thin layer of oil-absorbing powder (my favorite is from Soap & Glory) on my lids, apply Stone lightly, blend with a clean finger, and my eyes are nicely, subtly shadowed, and the look stays fresh and crease-free for hours. My lids do eventually begin to feel a bit "moist," but not for a long time, and I detect no fading or creasing. Packaging is first-class - a substantial metal tube whose caps fit securely. One end offers a rounded sponge that can be used for blending instead of your fingers, if you prefer. I find that either works well.I'll definitely buy Stone again, and will consider other shades of the Eyeshadow 101 Crème-to-Powder Eyeshadow Stick. I only wish there were more matte shades; there's a decent selection of neutrals, but they're mostly shimmery. I wouldn't mind if these cost a bit less, too(they're $18.00 each), but for a product this good, I'll deal.

Don't love this. I was actually intrigued with the packaging (at first!) bc it is easy to travel with (or so I thought)! The product has a tendency to "melt" from semi solid to a sticky gooey mess if any moisture is left in the container, which is easy to do. It feels like my skin is clean, after MUCH rinsing, but borderline stripped of all oils! For me, this usually creates an overproduction of oil and breakouts. Its pretty expensive too! Wont repurchase!

Where have these pencils been all my life???? :) I'm a Julep Maven and got one of these pencils in Bronze Shimmer as an add-on about a year ago. It's my favorite pencil and favorite shade! I also purchased Rich Brown, which is a really good color on me. Do yourself a favor if you buy one of these pencils---get a Julep pencil sharpener for them. If you get the regular monthly Maven box, you can usually add on a pencil sharpener for about $4. It's a cute design and works really well on these!

This is a pretty creme light pink nail polish. It's a tad runny, so can easily flood the cuticle. Wear time for me is about 3-4 days without a chip. Great spring color.

This is a gorgeous duochrome! The main color is a bright mid-toned blue that shifts to violet in the right light. My pictures don't do it justice, it's so pretty! The formula is a little thin but pretty easy to work with. It evens out well and leaves minimal brush strokes. It's absolutely beautiful and I get a ton of compliments on it. I don't love Julep's bottles but the brushes are pretty decent; I'd call it a medium width. I think Julep is underrated as a brand. Definitely check this one out!
