Allergies + Contacts = no Julep for me

By AshlyG

from North Carolina

Comments about Julep When Pencil Met Gel Long-Lasting Gel Eyeliner:

I wanted to love this soooo bad. I have the 5 in 1 concealer from this brand and I love it. When I saw the eyeliners on sale during 21 day, I knew I had to try them. I usually use Smashbox's always on gel liner so I was hoping this would be a sub for it. The color application of the Julep liner is so beautiful but it sticks to my contacts and my eyes water. I'm not sure if I'm allergic to the formula and hence the watering and sticking to my lenses or if it's the other way around. Sad to say I'll be returning these and sticking to smashbox.

      This is my second gold pencil! I love how the color is shimmery but not so in-your-face sparkly. It's great for giving your eyes a little everyday shimmer! I wish it lasted longer, but I'll keep buying it!

        Comments about Julep When Pencil Met Gel Long-Lasting Gel Eyeliner:

        I bought this because the other prestige brand eyeliner I originally wanted was sold out but in my opinion this one is so much better. I love it so much that I just bought a second one while it was still on sale. I use the one in Blackest Black and it is fabulous! Other black eyeliners either fade or migrate to the creases in my undereye (which can be cool for a 90s grungy look) but this one stays in place all day. It really does go on smoothly with little pull and it does not bother my eyes at all. I wear contacts and from time to time i'd get debris from other liners on my contacts but I haven't had that with this one yet.

            This eyeliner last all day for me. The sales rep told me she uses this for lining the inside of the upper eyelid, in Intense Black, it doesn't weep or smudge down onto the bottom lid and make my eyelashes look so much thicker!!! It is a fantastic way to apply eyeliner. I finish up my 'outside' lining with Smokey Plum, I really love these liners and recommend them highly!!

                A:

                Unfortunately When Pencil Met Gel is not approved for use within the waterline (for tight lining), due to the gel texture that includes water in the formulation.

              My ULTA store doesn't carry IN store and trying to decide colors online. Is the smoky plum a bright purple or more eggplant color? I have hazel eyes and can't decide between smoky taupe and smoky plum. Already have the bronze shimmer and LOVE it! Thanks!

                A:

                Smoky Plum is definitely more of a deep eggplant (we like to call it blackberry frost). Both Smoky Taupe and Smoky Plum would be very complementary of your hazel eyes. We would suggest Smoky Taupe for daytime look and Smoky Plum for a night out! Enjoy!

            • Q:

              Is this eyeliner safe for contact lens wearers? Also, I see that it is formulated for the lash line, I want to use this to tight line my eyes (i have never had a problem with gel liners not staying in place on my waterline before). Has this been tested on the waterline?
