August Julep Maven unboxing!


My August Maven came today! I’m still waiting for my July Ipsy… even though they conveniently took my money for August already… Julep is pulling ahead for my favorite company so far. I plan on posting a review blog soon. So watch out for that! I do want to state, that it’s my birthday month (my birthday was Aug 2nd) and I wish that Julep and/or Ipsy had recognized that.

Without further adieu, here is my August (Birthday month!) Maven!

No candy this month, but they provided nail decals, and their new “Brave Pretty is..” note card, where you write in your answer and then post it online. IMG_0844

I must admit I’m guilty of completely editing my box 100% this month. That’s the greatest thing about Julep subscription boxes… you can customize them!! Nothing too fancy this month, Oxygen nail treatment, and eye-glider. My Sister, got me hooked on their eye gliders. Sorry Mary-Kay… but these babies are GLORIOUS! I now own almost all the colors! 🙂 I ordered the Oxygen nail treatment because after I had an (awful) experience with jamberry several months ago, it left my nails damaged and they just haven’t been the same…so after reading this blog, I’ve decided to give it a shot!

My first lipstick as an adult! I love it, and it’s the perfect color for my fair skin. It’s called “Twirl”

Julep Maven – May 2015


I’m so sorry I’m late in posting this – it actually came weeks ago, but life kind of got in the way.

IMG_7768_2

There aren’t many photos of this month’s Maven box, because my cat photobombed the rest. So bear with me.

IMG_7769_2

I switched from “it girl” to “Boho Glam” because I was curious to try their make-up. This month’s option was… I think blush? I can’t remember, BUT Julep allowed me to go in and swap it out. So I did.

My cat turned the tissue paper into a snack. so ignore her bitemarks. 😀

IMG_7773_2

You can see my cat’s head in this photo. This month I got saltwater taffy as a treat, YUM!

IMG_7774_2

I swapped out the make-up item for a eyeshadow brush. I am SO glad I did. It’s much better quality than the target brushes I had. This month I got Becca and Carolyn for my polish colors. I just love, love, love them! They’re very spring-y and fun! They’re also very much “me.” So far I am loving Julep.
