Gift Guide: Jenulence Review & Giveaway 12/30 US/CAN


What girl doesn't love makeup and skincare products? I don't know about you, but I might as well say that I am obsessed with beauty products. I've always been tempted to try the mineral powder eye shadows at the mall, all my friends said they look very bright. I am very glad that I never gave into  the temptation to try them. They are full of cancer-causing chemicals and to apply it to the eyes where its so easy for chemicals to penetrate into the skin - no thanks!
Jenulence has been around since 2003 and their cosmetics are completely free of anything chemical/harmful.

Review
I like sparkly/shimmery colors and I chose to review Sparkling Bisque and Mauve Pearl Shimmer eye shadows from Jenulence. They came in tiny jars with sifters. These jars are wrapped with plastic to guarantee freshness and the sifter parts are also sealed. I couldn't wait to test these out. I used a simple eyeshadow brush to spread color over the eye lids and then touched up with my finger for a more even spread.

There is a considerable difference between Shimmer & Sparkle. Shimmer is literally shimmery and looks very natural and classic. Sparkle looks very sparkly, but not over the top and is great for when you need something extra in your makeup routine. I can't decide which one is my favorite as I love the both and they are very different. The colors themselves look and feel very natural. I thought they would be brighter from looking at pictures. I think it's because I chose very simple shades, but I love them none the less! The shimmers and the sparkles will last you all day.

I don't even have to explain why Jenulence products would make great gifts this holiday season. I would love it if someone gave me eye shadows for Christmas.Jenulence doesn't just have eye shadows, they have a lot of other natural makeup as well as some funky items such as Fizzing Bath Salts. Now that would be an amazing gift!
