Julep Maven Unboxing | October 2016

I’m backkkk!!! Did you all miss me? I certainly missed all of my followers! ❤ I took a mini hiatus to live a little and fully enjoy my spring and summer. No worries, I am officially back with new posts anddddd….a GIVEAWAY!!! To enter the giveaway, head over to my Instagram account and find the post for the Studio 1400 Super Shock Eyeshadow Set by ColourPop. In the meantime, lets discuss Julep!

If you kept up with my blog before my break, you know that Julep is one of my favorite subscriptions. I love it because you can choose exactly what products you want in your box each month. I have a 3 month recurring subscription where I am charged $63 every 3 months. It’s been well worth the money and I do not see myself cancelling this subscription anytime soon.

Alright, so let’s see what all I chose for my box this month! I chose two nail polishes and an eyeliner. I also decided to add on an eyeshadow stick to get rid of some of the Jules (reward points) I have accumulated. Julep also added a surprise nail polish for free in every box this month! 🙂

Nail Polish in Gladys (It Girl), $14.00

This nail polish is everything! It’s a midnight blue with a shimmery finish. Absolutely stunning! It is perfect for the colder months ahead of us!

Nail Polish in Ebony (It Girl), $14.00

This nail polish is the reason I love Julep. Julep has the best holographic nail polishes ever! Every month I try to purchase one with the holographic effect because it’s just so cool! It’s a graphite base with multi colored glitter. It literally looks like a galaxy on your nails and that’s what makes me loooovvveeee it!

Fluid Eye Glider, $20.00

So, I love a good liquid eyeliner that’ll give me a nice wing or cat eye. I have been in the process of trying to find another good liquid eyeliner because they’re my favorite to use when I am going out. I have been obsessed with using this one from Je Beau Cosmetics. I reviewed it here a few months ago.

But anyway, I decided to add this one to my box this month and I am glad I did! The felt tip makes it easy to apply thin or thick lines. This eyeliner is jet black and water resistant, which is a definite plus. Nobody wants their eyeliner running down their face.

Eyeshadow 101 Stick in Champagne Shimmer, $18.00

I chose to add this product to my box because: 1. it is an eyeshadow stick and I have never used one before; and 2. I thought it would be perfect to apply eyeshadow to my water line and inner corners.

The shadow is creme-to-powder formula and it is waterproof. Since it is a creme formula at first, it applies very smoothly. Champagne Shimmer is described as a “sun-kissed champagne shimmer.” It’s weird that they used the name of the color in the description. Lol! But, I guess that was the best description to fit the color, as you can see from the swatch below. One end of the stick is the shadow and the other end is a smudger. The product boasts having stay-all-day power and being crease proof.

Also, if champagne isn’t your color, it comes in 11 other shades.

Nail Polish in Desiree (It Girl), $14.00

This was a wonderful surprise in my box this month! Desiree is a clear top coat with a high gloss holographic shimmer! This polish instantly transforms any regular nail polish to a holographic finish! So now I can turn my favorite nail polishes into something completely different and I’m definitely excited about doing that!
