Are you ready for this month’s Sephora, PLAY! subscription? Here’s what I got! I’ve put descriptions of each photo in the captions of the photos, because I’m short on time today. I promise a better post next month!
I’m VERY late posting this, please forgive me. Life has been very hectic, and I’ve been very forgetful. It wasn’t until the September Julep Maven box showed up today that I realized I forgot to post this!
I’ve been pretty good about not giving in to the wonderful mystery boxes the Julep offers…But this time I couldn’t resist. Not sure why, but I just couldn’t.
This box came with 4 polishes (5 because I ordered an extra polish, Alexa, it’s the light purple one.) Lock down your brows and the Beach Tonic dry body oil and nail decals.
The colors that came in the box: Connie, Jenny (Favorite!!) Mariska, and Trisha.
I have not even opened the Lock down your brows, but I hear it’s good to help keep them in place or help them grow–both problems I don’t experience yet in life. The Body Oil, is a great item, but malfunctions easily. I e-mailed Julep and a replacement is on it’s way— but reviews say that ALL their bottles have issues with the sprayer.
This box was 100% worth the money. Don’t believe me. I’ve done a price break down below:
Connie: $14 for non Maven and $11.20 for Maven
Jenny: $14 for non Maven and $11.20 for Maven
Mariska: $14 for non Maven and $11.20 for Maven
Trisha: $14 for non Maven and $11.20 for Maven
Body Oil: $23 for non Maven and $18.40 for Maven
Lock Down your Bows: $22 for non Maven and $17.60 for Maven
Total: $101 for non maven and $80.80 for Maven
The box costs just $24.99 (plus tax) which is a steal of a deal if you ask me!
I’m so sorry I’m late in posting this – it actually came weeks ago, but life kind of got in the way.
There aren’t many photos of this month’s Maven box, because my cat photobombed the rest. So bear with me.
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. 😀
You can see my cat’s head in this photo. This month I got saltwater taffy as a treat, YUM!
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.
My April ipsy showed up today! So here is the post I promised after getting my Julep Maven box.
So today my April ipsy bag came… I knew what was going to be in it ahead of time because they give you a sneak peak. Before I go into my personal opinion/thoughts on the bag, heres a photo of everything together.
Starting with the Jor’el Parker Femina perfume. It smells nice, it isn’t by any means a bad smell… but it does have a hint of “old lady” to it… which is a little off-putting… but I could totally (and probably will) wear it to the next fancy outing we have.
Next up, Hey Honey. I am MOST excited about this. I am really faithful to my MaryKay lotion but I love products made with honey/beeswax. (Hello Burts Bees!) So I’m really excited to see how this works for my skin!
Next up is Hikari blush. I do not, have not and probably will not ever use blush. If you’ve ever seen any photos of me, I have naturally rosy cheeks… always have. I was going to trade it with someone online — but the box came with this nasty residue on it so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do that.
Next is the Nude Dude eyeshadow – Fit. I have so many brown eye shadows, I know I typically were natural looking make-up… but the reason I signed up for ipsy was to step outside my comfort zone… but I won’t complain over a new shadow 😀
Finally is the lip gloss. I’m not sure how I feel about this particular color, but I’m curious to try it and see how it works. Mitchell said he liked it, but we’ll see how it looks on me, hopefully I’ll remember and I can post a photo whenever that happens. 😀
