July Julep Maven Box

Hello My Lovelies 

I received my July Maven box in the mail yesterday and was blown away by the beauty of its contents.

I must admit however, that I meant to skip this month but I was a day late in trying to do so.  I sent an email to Julep asking if they could do it for me and they said no.

Rather than raising a stink, I just switched my box to "classic with a twist" instead of "American beauty" because I wasn't very fond of the colors in my beauty profile 

"Its Your Time to SPARKLE"

The theme of this months box.  

Another plus is that they included a "free" nail polish in everyone's box in honor of the 4th of July and Canada day.

Julep launched a line of lip gloss this month and included one in the box.  The idea is that we can all keep up with the latest trend of matching our lip gloss with our nails.  Very cleaver.

Up until now, Julep has been dedicated to nail, hand, and foot care and this is the first sign that they may be branching out into makeup land. 

I, for one am excited.

Lets take a closer look at the goodies shall we?

L to R Freida, O Canada!, Audrey, Camellia 
Super girly this month I know, but I love it.


Electric fuchsia micro-shimmer 

Beautiful!!!  I put it on right away and it has a nice even application

In natural light:

In artificial light:


Soft light pink Micro-shimmer

This one is the essence of girly.  Also the shade meant to match with the lip gloss:


Soft light pink pastel lip vernis.

I will be the first one to admit, the new lip glosses are a home run.  Light, non-sticky formula and it applies flawlessly.  Nice job.

And my freebie, in honor of Canada day:

O Canada

Sheer glitter with accent of cardinal red, its like nail art in a bottle.

I haven't actually tried this yet but it looks like a lot of fun.  Just wish it was here in time for Canada day lol.  They ship from Seattle and it can take up to 3 weeks to move it a 3 hour distance to Vancouver. Oh well.

  6. I totally loved this month's box! Aren't you glad you forgot to cancel? ;-)

  7. These are all great colors! Please check out my blog! It would make my day if you followed it!

  8. I love JULEP! This months' box was definitely my favorite because I love lip gloss, they're formula is great isn't it? And I also love the colour assortment, it was hard to decide but I selected the boho glam. First time visiting, hope you'll stop by and would you like to follow each other?

  9. I loved the gloss! The nail colours were pretty too, especially the O Canada sparkle, but I actually had a ton of problems keeping it on my nails the two times I put it on. I'm going to try doing it differently in hopes that it doesn't majorly chip off like it did.
