This month’s Julep Maven box was awesome! Not only did I get two pretty shades of nail polish but I also got a set of 3 mini lipsticks! This month I went with the Boho Glam style profile but I liked a lot of the nail polish shades in this collection so I chose two additional add-on colors too.
Julep nail polish shades I received:
Millie – a deep, smoky indigo blue cream
Alice – lilac shimmer
Gabrielle – smoky mulberry cream (add-on)
Paris – holographic glitter top coat (add-on)
All of these colors are beautiful, especially the holographic glitter. In the next week or so I’m going to pair Gabrielle with Paris on top and I’ll post my swatches. I have a feeling I’m going to love that combo!
3 mini lipstick shades included:
Satin Doll – sheer orange poppy
Tea For Two – sheer nude shimmer
Lady In Red – matte red
The two sheer shades, Satin Doll and Tea For Two, are firm and feel more like a tinted lip balm/butter than a lipstick. They only give my lips a tint of color but they feel really nice. They stay soft and creamy and keep my lips feeling moisturized.
The matte shade, Lady In Red, is very pigmented. It’s softer and glides on the lips and feels more like a lipstick than the other two do. It also gives your lips opaque color while still feeling creamy and soft. I love these mini lipsticks, they are perfect for tossing in my purse on the go.
In addition to all of this, they also snuck in a little surprise for us. Everyone received 4 bobby pins with cute little resin flowers on them, 2 pink and 2 white. Very cute!
I couldn’t be happier with May’s Julep Maven box. It was definitely worth the $20 subscription fee. I can’t wait to get next month’s box too, it looks like another winner. They’re giving us DD cream that I can’t wait to try and the colors I chose look really nice.
