Julep Maven Time! What’s in My Box? | January 2016

What time is it!?! Julep Time!!! I am really excited about my box this month! I picked out some really awesome products and even got a sweet treat this month! I won’t bore you with a lot of background about the box, but click here to subscribe to your own box for $24.99 a month, or $59.98 for a 3 month subscription. The total value for my box this month was $75, including the add-on I purchased with my Jules. You earn Jules for every box you receive and can spend them on products in the online shop.

Now, for the fun part! Let’s see what products I received!

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

Last month, I chose this lip mousse in Smooch and I loved the quality of it so much that I had to get another color in my box this month! The color I chose this time was XOXO. It is a shade of fuchsia. However, it is too pink for me and, in my opinion, is not very flattering on my complexion. It would look much better on fairer skin tones.

When Pencil Met Gel in Blackest Black, $16.00 

Soooooo I think I may have found a new eyeliner! I have been a faithful user of MAC’s ProLongwear Eyeliner for a while now. It goes on smooth and is a nice black and I thought I was in love with it…until this one entered my life! I thought my MAC eyeliner went on smooth…this one just GLIDES on! It feels like butter being applied! The black is super pigmented, unlike the MAC eyeliner and it literally stayed on all day! It didn’t fade at all! I really think I will have to switch over to this eyeliner and I’ll save $5 every time it is time to replace eyeliner, which is an added bonus! Who doesn’t like to save money on a product that is even better than their go to???? Definite win!

Nail Color in Joss, $14.00

I absolutely love this nail color! It is described as a “ripe fig duochrome” on the website.I love nail polishes that give off the iridescent effect and this one has that effect. It’s such a pretty purple with a greenish duochrome. I wish I could’ve picked up the duochrome effect in the picture. No matter how I turned the camera or the lighting I used, I could not pick it up! Anyway, I think I may wear this polish within the next couple of weeks!

Break the Ice Trio, $24.99 

Top to bottom: Primp, Charm, Mingle

I have been eyeing this trio since before the holidays. I thought I would possibly use it as a gift for a giveaway on my Instagram page, but I decided to just purchase it for myself. I think the colors are really fitting for the cooler months that we are currently in. The three colors included are Primp (marsala creme), Charm (festive fuchsia creme), and Mingle (mulled wine creme). My favorite color in the box is Charm. It looks so good on my complexion! I will be wearing this color very often in the coming months! Mingle is my second favorite. I always love shades of red because you can usually never go wrong with a red lip. As you can tell from the pictures, Primp is definitely not my color. It is wayyyyy too light for my skin tone. I will NEVER wear this one! LOL! Also, the tubes these mini lipsticks come in are so upscale! They are packaged in silver plated lipstick tubes! I definitely wasn’t expecting that which makes me excited to pull these lipsticks out to refresh my lip color! LOL!

What do you think about the products I received in my box this month? Let me know in the comments!
