Why is it a good deal?

Shopping for good makeup at a good price is tough. Eyeshadow sticks from luxury beauty brands can cost up to $35, but at just $11, the Julep Crème to Powder Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick is a steal — and this is the lowest price we've seen it (prices vary depending on color).

Why do I need this?

Beauty buffs of all ages love these eyeshadow sticks, but if you no longer have 20-year-old eyelids, take note: These can solve all sorts of makeup hiccups. You don't have to worry about eyeshadow creasing after an hour, which can highlight droopy lids. If you want to preserve the elasticity of the skin around your eyes, these sticks let you smooth on your eyeshadow without tugging or pulling. On top of all that, the colors last all day, fans say — no reapplying is necessary to keep your face looking fresh.

Julep's eyeshadow sticks are made with good-for-skin ingredients like vitamin E (rich in free-radical-fighting antioxidants) and vitamin C (repairs damage from environmental stressors). They also come in over 50 shades — some have shimmer, but there are also loads of mattes to choose from.

What reviewers say

With 28,000 five-star ratings, Amazon shoppers have a lot to say about the Julep Crème to Powder Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick.

"They go on so silky and the colors are soft and are just enough to complement the eyes," wrote a five-star fan. "They do not sink into creases and leave lines."

"The eye shadow goes on smoothly without pulling the delicate lid skin (important to us over-60 crowd) and is easy to blend," a beauty enthusiast shared. "The shimmer is not too much for everyday use."

"Stays all day," reported another rave reviewer. "I have been dealing with a really teary eye issue and wanted some eye shadow that was easy to apply and would stick around throughout a day of wiping my eye. This does the trick! This never feels sticky on my eyelids but stays in place all day long."

"So easy to use, and brightens my eyes incredibly!" a happy shopper raved. "No powder mess to clean up on [my] face. Makes me want to throw out all my powder eyeshadows! I am almost 60 years old, and this made a significant difference in my appearance. Makes my eyes pop. It's a game changer!"

"It glided on nicely and the color was pretty," shared a final fan who bought it in Champagne Shimmer. "The only complaint that I would have is that this color is very sheer. I had to go over it a couple of times. Pick a darker color if you really want it to stand out."

Don't need the extra sparkle? There are matte options to choose from like Stone Matte (shown).
