Julep Maven Unboxing | December 2015 (Updated)

My Julep box has arrived and I am super excited!! The arrival of this box marks the beginning of my favorite time of the month, SUBSCRIPTION BOX time!! 🙂 This is the first of my reviews for the month, so without further ado, let’s get into this review!

I always love the unboxing part, even though I get to pick out which products I would like, it is still very exciting! I also love the inspirational quote that Julep puts in every box! The quotes always put a smile on my face! Anywho, in my box this month, I received the Orbital Eyeshadow in Borealis, It’s Whipped Matter Lip Mousse in Smooch, and the Vanish Cuticle Softener & Remover. The value of this box is $56. So, for $20 a month, this is well worth it.

Oh, if you head over to the site by 11:59 PM, December 14th, you can get 40% off sitewide during the Friends & Family Sale using the code WELOVEYOU.

Products I received this month 🙂

It’s Whipped Matte Lip Mousse in Smooch, $20.00

I love this lip mousse! It is super smooth and moisturizing for a liquid to matte mousse, unlike other liquid to matte formulas. The pigment was very rich when applied. It is described as a brick red on the website. However, I think it was a little lighter than a brick red…which is still okay with me. The wand made application easy and clean. The website lists the following as benefits of this lip mousse:

  • “Light-diffusing blend of pigments minimize the appearance of lip lines
  • Antioxidant-rich formula keeps lips feeling nourished and comfortable
  • Julep-exclusive ultra-hydrating Power Cell Complex™ delivers essential nutrients to soothe, repair, and improve barrier function so lips retain moisture”

Unfortunately, I have not worn it for an extended time to see how the wear is and how long it takes to fade. But, when I do, I will update this post.

Dial Up Your Glam Orbital Eyeshadow, $18.00I was hoping this eyeshadow would live up to my expectations based off of the pictures I saw online and OMG did it! This eyeshadow is absolutely stunning in person! The borealis effect is beautiful! I really couldn’t believe how beautiful this eyeshadow is when applied! The formula is very smooth and the application was effortless. The pigment is extremely rich and you really do not need to apply much to get a rich pigment on your eyes. According to the website these are the benefits of this eyeshadow:

• “Uses iridescent pearls and vibrant metallic pigments to create an effortless, multidimensional eye look
• Blends the color payoff of a cream shadow and the layering power of a powder”
Based off of these benefits, I would have to agree that this eyeshadow definitely lives up to both!

Vanish Cuticle Softener & Remover, $18.00 This is a really cool product. I love the eyedropper top that helps make applying a couple of drops to your cuticles very easy. It made my cuticles soft and removed excess skin. It also removed leftover nail polish around my cuticle bed and some stains that were left on my nail. Definitely an added bonus to this product!

Just in case you were curious, here are the features and benefits of this product according to the website. You will see that my review matches pretty well with what the product is said to offer.

Features & Benefits:

  • Instantly loosens overgrown cuticles
  • Removes stubborn color stains from nails
  • Reduces regrowth with regular use
  • Works wonders on toes, too
