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.

SquareHue The Adventure Collection: Museum Hop Paris | November 2016

SquareHue is a nail polish subscription where you can receive either 3 full size polishes a month for $21 or 2 polishes for $16 a month, depending on your preference. Every month, I am pleasantly surprised with the color variety that is always spot on with the theme of the year/month. With every subscription, a portion of the proceeds are contributed to prevention awareness of human trafficking.


I really love every single color in this month’s box! My favorite is Pompidou. It is a coppery brown holographic polish. This is my favorite because of the holographic finish. I try to get a holographic polish in every Julep box because I just loveee how the polish makes it look like you have a galaxy on your nails. It’s so sparkly and just amazing!

Louvre is a beautiful matte gray. I am excited about this color because I love gray nail polishes, it’s a matte finish which is super on trend currently, and I don’t think I’ve ever used a matte polish before.

The third color is also super on trend! It is called d’Orsay and it has a high gloss creme finish. Peach tones are all the hype, so I’m not surprised to see this shade in this month’s box. I love the way it looks on the nail wheel, I can’t say whether or not I’ll love it on my hands though. We shall find out soon enough!

Louvre and d’Orsay are opaque in two coats. It took 3 coats for Pompidou to become opaque.

 

Aren’t they beautiful??

SquareHue The Adventure Collection: Gondola Venice | October 2016

Ahhhh!!!! My favorite monthly subscription box is here! I am so excited to review this box again! My last review was in March, so it’s been a while! For those who don’t know, SquareHue is a nail polish subscription where you can receive either 3 full size polishes a month for $21 or 2 polishes for $16 a month, depending on your preference. Every month, I am pleasantly surprised with the color variety that is always spot on with the theme of the year/month. With every subscription, a portion of the proceeds are contributed to prevention awareness of human trafficking.

Okay, now that we have the business out of the way, let’s talk about nail polishhhh!!!! Fall is officially here and SquareHue is fully aware of that from the shades in this box. If you followed my blog earlier this year, you know that each box this year fit in with the overarching adventure theme and the colors chosen matched that individual location theme. The theme for this month is “Gondola Venice.” I’ve never been to Venice, Italy, but it’s definitely on my bucket list to visit soon! As you can see from the picture on the card included with the box below, every color in the box was pulled from the picture!

img_2434

My favorite polish in this box is called Santa Marie del Giglio. It is a mushroom grey shade and a perfect neutral for the cooler months. This polish has a high gloss creme finish. Next up we have a gorgeous berry red shade called Campo San Moise! I love any shade of red, whether its for my nails or my lip! So, I’m definitely excited to have a red in this box! My least favorite color in this box is Canal Grande. It is a teal shade with what looks like blue, silver, and maybe purple shimmer. The only reason I’m not super excited about this shade is because I feel like there has been a shade of blue in half of the boxes this year! Lol! Either way, I will still wear it at some point!

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!

Nails of the Week | Alaina by Julep

I love this nail polish! I received Alaina in my February Julep box! It is a beautiful taupe shade. It is described as “driftwood taupe creme.” It puts a different spin on a nude polish! Even though it’s warming up, I’m not quite ready to pull out my bright polishes, so this is the perfect transition color for me.

I would love to see your nails of the week! Tag me on IG and use my hashtag #jewellslipsandtips so I can see them!

Nails of the Week | Mambo by SquareHue

This polish was in the Decades Collection: 1940 box. I reviewed the box here. I really like this burnt orange color that Mambo gives me. In the bottle, it looked much darker than it actually does on my hands. It is the perfect transition color from winter to spring or summer to fall.  Of course, as with every SquareHue polish, it lasted for days without ever chipping. I’m a loyal SquareHueist (you like what I did there? lol) and I think you should be too! Click here to subscribe!
