Julep Maven Unboxing | December 2016

Can y’all believe that it is already DECEMBER!?! This year has flown by! It’s time for me to share what I received in my Julep subscription box this month. Julep is a subscription box service where you are able to handpick 3 products you would like each month. You can also add on products for a discounted price. The box is $24.99/month or $19.99/month with a 3-month prepaid subscription. You can click here to use my referral link to subscribe.

This month I really, really tried to switch up the products I picked. I really tried to stay away from nail polishes…I failed. LOL! I had to get one as an add on. I couldn’t help myself! I did manage to get some other goodies, so let’s see what I got!

*Scroll down for instructions to enter my giveaway!*


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

This is the second lip mousse I have tried from Julep. This formula is amazing! It’s very creamy which makes it very comfortable on your lips. My lips never feel dry wearing this even though it is a matte lipstick. I was expecting this shade to be darker on me since it is described as “heathered wine matte” on the site. Instead, it it just a dusty rose shade on me. It’s still pretty and I will definitely wear it!

Don’t Leave Your Brows at Home in Rich Brown, $24.00

I normally stick to brow pencils because, for me, they are much easier to use and I like to keep my makeup as simple and natural looking as possible. But, I decided to try something new, so I selected this for my box this month. I like that one end of the tube has the brow gel in it and the other end is the brush, now I don’t have to keep up with so much. I used this product to just fill in my brows because I don’t prefer the over defined brows. The gel is really smooth and easy to apply. It is somewhat difficult to get product on the brush since the part that it is in is kind of small. Overall, I liked the look and feel of this. I can’t say if I will be replacing my Ofra Universal Brow Pencil or not, but I will use this if I just want to do something different.

Oxygen Bonding Base Coat, $18.00

I got this base coat in a subscription box several months ago and really loved it. Once I ran out, I decided that I would get different products and use the base coats I already had at home. Over time I realized that no base coat was quite like this one. This base coat literally grips your nail polish to your nails and allows the polish to last longer. It also allows your nails to grow healthier and stronger. I do notice a difference in the health of my nails when using this base coat versus others.

Wonder Maven Nail Polish in Krystle, $14.00


Krystle is a dark green shade with a little shimmer. Julep’s nail polishes last at least 4 days without chipping. The polishes are also 5-free and vegan friendly.

Julep No Limits Luxe Hydrating Crème Review

I initially received this creme in my Julep November box. However, the pump on the jar didn’t work (initial thought: who puts a pump on a jar?), so I had to report the issue and within a day, I received an email saying they would replace the jar with no issue! That’s great customer service!

The purpose of the pump is to keep impurities out of the creme. But, just putting it out there, I saw online where a lot of people complained about the pump not working, at least Julep replaces them without any issue. This is definitely something they should work on fixing!


Anyway, The replacement came a few days after I requested it. This time, the pump worked (yay!)!

 


I really love this creme. It’s thick, but not too thick because it doesn’t take forever to rub it into my skin. It’s extremely moisturizing and I just love way it makes my skin feel. I don’t know how to describe the scent, but I do know I’m not a fan of it. The scent fades away pretty quickly, so I can continue to use this product without being annoyed by the smell for too long!

If you’re in need of a new moisturizer, this one is a good option! It sells for $24 on Julep’s website. Check RetailMeNot for coupon codes before purchasing because Julep always has a coupon!


Have you tried this moisturizer? What were your thoughts? Let me know in the comments.

Julep Maven Unboxing | November 2016

It’s Julep time again! I swear getting these boxes reminds me how fast time moves! It feels like just last week that I reviewed my October box! Julep is a subscription box service where you are able to handpick 3 products you would like each month. You can also add on products for a discounted price. The box is $24.99/month or $19.99/month with a 3-month prepaid subscription. You can click here to use my referral link to subscribe.

Anyway, this month, I tried to stay away from getting so many nail polishes because I have wayyyyyyy too many now! But, it was hard to not get at least one because, as you all know, I’m a huge fan of their holographic nail polishes…which means I had to get one! Let’s see what else I picked out this month!

No Limits Luxe Hydrating Creme, $24.00

I was really excited about trying this product. However, I couldn’t get the pump to work on it. 😦 I reached out to Julep to replace the product. Once they do, I will review it in an individual post! 🙂

Ta Da! Quick Dry Drops, $18.00

I already use a quick dry top coat by Nails, Inc. It sells for $15 at Sephora. For the last few months, I have been contemplating getting this product just to see how it works. I always would decide against it for one reason or another…usually to get nail polish. LOL! But, this month I decided to break down and get this. I’m glad I did because I followed the instructions and applied 1-2 drops to the base of my nails 1 minute after applying my top coat and in a few minutes my nails were completely dry! No smudges, no smears, no tackiness, no nothing! Just 100% dry! I will definitely use this product every single time I paint my nails! Like the product description says, it’s a game changer!

Bombshell Nail Polish in Eliza, $14.00


​​​​​​​​​This nail polish is a beautiful ocean blue holegraphic! I love the holographic effect because it is soooo sparkly and I love how the shimmer changes as the light hits your nails! Julep’s nail polishes last at least 4 days without chipping. The polishes are also 5-free and vegan friendly.

Gel Eye Glider Sharpener, $10.00

I needed a new sharpener, so I decided to use my Jules reward points to add this sharpener on to my box this month. I like how the sharpener is travel friendly because it’s not easy for this sharpener to fall apart and spill your shavings everywhere. However, with it being travel friendly, when it is time to empty the sharpener, I struggle to open the bottom part. I twist and pull and it’s just a hassle! I also don’t like how I can’t see how sharp my pencils are getting.

Simple Fall Makeup Look

I loved my makeup so much the other day that I felt like dedicating an entire post to breakdown my look! I think it’s a very simple, but beautiful, fall look.

Face

Aquaphor to moisturize

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Amande under my eyes, around my nose, and around my mouth

Lorac TANtalizer Baked Bronzer on cheekbones

Brows

Ofra Cosmetics Universal Brow Pencil

Eyes

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! 🙂

*If you would like to subscribe to Julep, click here to use my referral link.*

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!

Left to right: Ebony, Gladys, Gladys with Desiree as a top coat

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!

What product would you like to try in this box? Let me know in the comments!
