My Julep Maven Box arrived a few days ago and I suppose I should admit it now, yeah, I went for the full collection again. I loved the colors this month and when they put it them all together, it’s nail polish porn and I can’t help myself.
I am totally loving the new Julep boxes! I didn’t even know what it was when I opened my mailbox – I was expecting the normal black box to show up.
Oh yeah and not only did I get the full collection, I got an add-on. In my defense, it’s going to be for one of my giveaways in August. I’m not sure if I mentioned it on here, but I think I am going to host a dozen (give or take – probably take) separate giveaways this month instead of an August Favorite Things One.
~Julep Marjorie (It Girl) ($14 /$11.20): Marjorie is a citrus orange frost and is one of my favorites in the box. It’s got a little shimmer, but not too much!
~Julep Bea (Bombshell) ($14 /$11.20): Bea is a lemonade crème and looks to me to be on the greener side of yellow, which I like. It’s not bright yellow like most (all) of my other yellows, so this is a nice addition.
~Julep Francis (Boho Glam) ($14 /$11.20): Francis is a celery green crème and you know what, that’s exactly what it reminds me of. Celery (which I don’t like BTW). While it’s a pretty color, I don’t think it’s one I will reach for often.
~Julep Lacey (Bombshell) ($14 /$11.20): Lacey is a midnight blue with purple shimmer and is probably my favorite color in the collection. It reminds me more of winter than a garden party, but I love it.
~Julep Fiore (It Girl) ($14 /$11.20): Fiore is an espresso brown crème and while very very pretty, I already have a dark brown and don’t use it often. I want a dark color, I usually go for blues or reds or purples. I just don’t grab brown.
~Julep Sylvia (Classic With A Twist) ($14 /$11.20): Sylvia is a lilac purple crème and is like nothing I have. I think this is going to be great with some glitter over it!
~Julep Nellie (It Girl) ($14 /$11.20): Nellie is a pink fuschia crème and of course, I love it. I am serious about my pink polishes and feel like you can never have enough.
~Julep Veronica (Classic With a Twist) ($14 /$11.20): Veronica is a modern mauve crème and I don’t love it. I think it’s my least favorite in the collection. It’s just not me at all.
~Julep Lois (Boho Glam) ($14 /$11.20): Lois is a dusty rose frost and is more very pretty. It’s less brown and more pink in real life and again, with a coat of glitter, it will be amazing. Speaking of glitter polish, how do you easily remove it? Have I asked this before? Any tips?
~Julep Moisture Mask Trio ($20 / $16): This is a trio of moisturizing masks for you nails, hands and feet (one mask for each). I kind of wish they were all feet masks, because these are right up my alley. The treatment only lasts 30 minutes, which is great because I can’t commit to much longer than that. Does anyone know if there is a similar product out there that I can just buy for feet? Not those thick socks. Something like this.
~Julep Double Step ($22 / $17.60): This stick “moisturizes feet, stimulates circulation, and prevents blisters” in a no mess way. I am so weird and if I determine that my feet are, in any way, dry, need to lotion them up right away, so I am throwing this in my bag for just that purpose! I *almost* bought an extra one that I like it so much, but I am guessing I will be able to trade for one, so I restrained myself.
~Julep Forget-Me-Not Seeds: The little bonus item this month was forget-me-not seeds, which we will totally use. We’ve got a wildflowers growing around the house and these will be a nice addition.
All totaled the August Julep “Garden Party” full collection had a value of $168 (or $134.40 if you are using Maven pricing). Of course I would never pay $168 for the items, but $50? That’s a deal! Regular boxes are $19.99/month and it’s only an additional $30 to upgrade to the full collection.
