Yes, I know it’s July but last month while binge shopping, I decided to try another Julep box, and TADAAAAAA this is what I got 🙂
So of course I went for the big bottle at first, and its a heat tamer/shine spray, and YUM it smells (LOL I almost typed tastes) like strawberries.
In the bag of goodies was this thingy…a lip plumper? Yup. Ladies this color sucks but the plumping action is great! Usually, plumper’s never work on me but this lasted almost an hour which, is eons longer then any other plumper I have tried.
Its called Ultra Violet and while it makes a pretty swatch, the color didn’t work for me, it went on very streaky and the color clumped around my mouth.
Here’s the colors. Top is Natalie, a very dupeable pink. Although it is a very nice true pink, Sally Hansen and Sinful Colors have the same pink. The bottom one is Emilie, the love child of forest green and true green. It’s a nice shade, but looks horrible on my summer tanned hands.
My hand model this month is my sister 🙂 poor thing came to visit, and the minute she walked into my apartment, I attacked her with beauty products and literally paid her to be my test dummy for the week 🙂 Love her!
I’m a sucker for nail products especially nail polish. So after reading about all the lovely ladies subscribed to the Julep Maven box, I just had to get in on it…..Oh did I forget to mention it only cost me 1 penny!!!! what!!! Yup!!!!
Meet my Julep Maven Box….shes so sleek 🙂
Do not tell me there are goodies inside a box and then expect me to patiently open it. NOPE I tore the box open and look what came out 🙂
This is the Julep glycolic hand scrub. Think St. Ives Apricot Scrub but more citrusy smell. it left my hands feeling very soft and slightly hydrated
Now to the nail polish!! On the online test, I tested as BOHO GLAM. While the words sound exactly like me, I wasn’t too in love with the nail colors, but I am so glad I stuck to the BOHO colors because I really really love one of the colors.
The grey is called “Meryl” and it is a very nice creamy grey. While I like the muted color, I already have a grey that is an exact match for this.
The yellow one is called “Blake” and I love Blake 🙂 Normally I love crazy vibrant colors on my nails, but this the PERFECT buttery yellow to make me turn towards pastels
OVERALL: For a penny I love what I got! I mean how can you complain when you literally paid nothing. However would I become a monthly subcriber…….for $2o/month probably not. Ouch, I know. I love nail varnish but I mean come on I can go to the drugstore and pick up polish for like a buck, so sorry Julep Maven, although your introductory offer is AWESOME, I just can not see myself paying that much each moth for nail polish and hand products.
