Julep Maven: February 2014

February 5, 2014

Julep Maven February 2014

I was really looking forward to receiving my February 2014 Julep Maven box.  This month most boxes included one of their new liquid eyeshadow shades depending on the style profile you choose.  They also were including a bonus bottle of glitter polish in honor of Valentine’s Day.

I chose to go with the Boho Glam style profile which included 2 nail polish shades, an eyeshadow and the bonus glitter polish.

Julep Maven February 2014

Here’s what I got:

  • Rooney – deep walnut brown cream
  • Cameron – silver lilac in their stardust finish (matte glitter)
  • Love (bonus) – golden glitter with specks of red and pink
  • Eye Sheen Liquid Eyeshadow in Pale Nude Shimmer

Julep Rooney Nail Polish

Julep Cameron Nail Polish

Julep Love Nail Polish

I really like all three of these nail polish colors.  Rooney is a really nice neutral shade while Cameron is a nice subtle purple.  I’m really looking forward to using the Love glitter next week, I just have to decide what color to use as a base first.

I was expecting the liquid eyeshadow to be more of a solid but it’s actually very thin.  I think it will be better applied with my fingers to get more concentrated color.  Using a brush may sheer it out too much.

I haven’t worn it on my lids yet but the swatch on my arm lasted a long time today.  I’m hoping that means it will last a fairly long time on my lids.  I like the color too which is a shimmery nude that has hints of pink/rose gold.

What do you think of all the colors in this month’s Julep maven box?
