October Julep Maven Box

Black Magoc 1

Black Magic 2

Logan

DeAnn

I am so excited that it is finally October! Even though I live in south Florida and it doesn’t change season pretty much at all I still love the fall time. The days get shorter, shadows are longer and that means a whole new month of goodies from my monthly subscriptions! This month my Julep Maven box was the first to arrive and I am completely in love with the colors. Sticking to a fall theme The Black Magic Collection colors are completely perfect for the upcoming season and there is always a beauty bonus included. This month I got the colors DeAnn a beautiful and rich cranberry color and Logan which is the wonderful shimmering deep eggplant color. They are hands down wonderful and can not wait to use them My beauty item was their new Night Shift over night mask which when applied before bed helps to rejuvenate your skin and leave it bright a radiant in the morning! Like I said I am completely in love with this months box! If you are interested in becoming a Julep Maven I will link the information here and its a $20 a month subscription!

Its a new month and I am excited for some new polish’s! Literally the first day of every month when I get my Julep Maven Box my nails and myself do a happy dance! This months theme is the Vivid Collection and let me just say vivd does these colors justice. Since its spring and with summer right around the corner we finally have the okay to wear our favorite bright colors and not be judged. I am loving my new colors and know that they will be perfect additions to my go to colors for the season.

The beautiful pink color in Caitlin was simply stunning, I loved how pigmented it is and you can build the color up with more coats or just leave it sheer with one coat. The fun orange polish named Mariska was defiantly a surprise to me. Some of you may know that I tend to stick to the same color pallet with my nail polishes so adding an orange to the mix was hesitant for me. However I really really love this color, I enjoy that even though it is orange and pigmented it still isn’t overwhelming and very pretty (this color also has a matte finish and just added a topcoat to add more shine).

  Also how wonderful is this Peach Bellini Blush I got in my box. It gives you the perfect amount of color to your checks without being too much and would even be beautiful swept across the eyelids for an easy day look. Did I mention that it is also pore minimizing, who doesn’t love a little extra boost to our already beautiful complexions! Hope you all enjoy these as much I do and I can’t wait to see all of your favorite polishes for spring!

The Riviera Collection

IMG_8800

Its that time of month where every nail polish lover dreams come true! Well at least for me it is hehe 🙂 I am always stalking my mail box at the beginning of every month waiting for my Julep Maven Box and finally after two weeks and one vacation I am so excited to share it with all of you. From the title I am sure you can see that this months theme is the sunny and chic Riviera! Now we cant all visit the french Riviera this summer (unfortunately) but that doesn’t mean our nails cant look like we have. This month I peeked and looked at what colors I would be getting this month and at first I have to say I wasn’t sure if I would love them ( shocking moment I know). But fear not I am obviously obsessed with them since I have used both of my colors twice already. I am also already considering ordering them so I don’t have to worry about running out.

I get the Classic with a twist box and in this months box there was a creamy white color called Soraphine and this vibrant fire engine red lacquer called Myriam. As I had mentioned earlier I was nervous that I wasn’t going to totally love both of them, mainly Soraphine because I haven’t had the best luck with white polishes. So I bit the bullet and tried Soraphine first and immediately was squealing with joy because I loved it that much! Its the perfect neutral nail polish when you want something simple yet pretty which reminds me of my favorite go to polish Ballet Slippers from Essie.

I just recently tried Myriam and have already gotten dozens of compliments on it. I usually end up choosing red for my nails, mostly because I think its a fun pop of color but still classic and thats why I think I gravitate to this color. It is a classic and vibrant red yet really packs a punch and it is eye catching which is great for spring. It also remind me of my go to red polish Big Apple Red from OPI but now I have a new favorite go to red.

Like with all Julep Maven boxes each comes with a full sized Julep beauty product and this month it was a shade of lip glass from their line. I have gotten one before in a box and have loved it so I was looking forward to trying another shade. This month I got Graceful a beautiful, soft and light creamy pink color that goes on sheer and a bit milky. It is  perfect to wear alone or ontop of your favorite lipstick shade.

Hope you all enjoyed this look into my month Maven box and maybe inspired you to try some of my new favorite shades!

February Julep Maven

DSC_1173Doing my nails has to be one of my favorite things to do. Wether I am treating myself and getting them done or enjoying a night in with a new color and Sex and the City reruns I just enjoy the me time.  Thankfully each month thanks to my Julep Maven boxes I get to try some new colors every month and they never disappoint. Since February is the month of love this months box featured a line of Dramatic colors that really speak to the emotions. Since I get the Classic with a Twist box I got the colors Greta, a striking  shimmery berry lacquer that gives just enough pop of sparkle to any manicure. Then there is Octavia a sultry indigo that will make any nail polish fanatic drool. And because little gifts of love are featured this month Julep gifted mavens with a beautiful glittery glam polish in a perfectly pink color with gold glitter specks and when it hits the sunlight it looks like a pink aurora borealis! Its truly magical and I am completely in love with it.

With all Julep Maven Boxes they send a full sized beauty product and this month was their featured Julep Eye Sheen shadows. This cream based eye shadow go on smoothly and dry with a beautiful and dramatic eye color. It takes the hassle out of applying powered shadows and little speckles of the shadow falling all over your makeup.  In a nut shall its simply amazing!!
