Julep December 2014…

0

My apologizes for not posting my November box. Here’s my December box. For those who don’t know Julep is a beauty subscription box. They say the first box is free but ya just gotta pay for shipping which is only $3.00. So that’s not that bad. But if you continue to get the box, I spend $21.89 per box. Though, they have added the option to completely customize your box. It’s costs $24.99 and I don’t mind not being able to completely customize what I get in my box. I just choose which style of box I want. I usually get the Bombshell box, mostly cause that one almost always has the colors I like. You also have the option to add stuff to your box for a cheaper price then on their store. Including polishes for $4.99. Let my know what you think and I’ll put a link at the end of the post if you’d like to try it out too…So here’s what I got for December…

Dec julep 2014

This month in the Bombshell Box I got…

Dec 2014 Julep card

We got a Orbital Eyeshadow I got the shade in Equinox. I did have a different shade in it but I was able to change it. I think the original one was a purple color. I’m not 100% on the but yeah. I switched it for something I know I’d use more then once. This is swatched over Glamourdolleyes Glitter Fix. I tried it without anything and it didn’t show up very well. Sense this is a baked shadow it’s probably best to use with a base or wet.

Julep Equinox

The Polishes are…

Paula, this looks more purple in person then on camera…

Julep Paula

Soleil

Julep Soleil

I also added on some Nail Decals that are gold stripes. Happy they weren’t stolen from my box like last time.

Nail Decals 1

Reindeer Games Duo Polish pack. The colors are…

Neely(love this one)

Julep Neely

Nic I thought this was going to be a brown but I was surprised to see a burgundy lol. I’m happy with it, this is a color I wear often.

Julep Nic

Then I got a mystery Polish. Got the color Sylvia…

Julep Sylvia

This was my free gift for getting 3 addons to my box. Blank Canvas Plumping Lip Primer. Okay this stuff tingles but it made my lips look fuller so that’s a good thing. I don’t mind the tingling but some might find it annoying. I know not everyone likes the feel of lip plumpers. I did a heavy swatch of this cause it wouldn’t stop coming out from the dang thing lol. So I just wiped it on my hand then put some on as well lol. It didn’t tingle my hand just my lips. So that was a good thing…

Julep Plumping Lip Primer

Lastly we got Red Bird Mints. I don’t like mints so my hubby with be getting these.

Got my October Julep box. For those who don’t know Julep is a beauty subscription box. They say the first box is free but ya just gotta pay for shipping which is only $3.00. So that’s not that bad. But if you continue to get the box, I spend $21.89 per box. Though, they have added the option to completely customize your box. It’s costs $24.99 and I don’t mind not being able to completely customize what I get in my box. I just choose which style of box I want. I usually get the Bombshell box, mostly cause that one almost always has the colors I like. You also have the option to add stuff to your box for a cheaper price then on their store. Including polishes for $4.99. Let my know what you think and I’ll put a link at the end of the post if you’d like to try it out too…So here’s what I got for October…

October 2014 Julep

Of Course this month’s box is themed around Halloween. I added 2 polishes to this month’s box and some kitty nail decals. Sadly when I went to pick up my box from the post office it was opened. The tissue paper was ripped and everything was messed up. Along with my nail decals missing. I informed Julep about what happened and even sent them a picture of how my box looked. They emailed back and apologized they’re also going to replace the decals. Even though it’s not their fault. I told them I know they’re not at fault for this happening that I just wanted them to know that it happened and I hoped it didn’t happen to someone else. I’ve been getting mail through my P.O.Box for a good year and half. I’ve never had anything like this happened. I switched to a P.O.Box so this wouldn’t happen. very frustrating that it did. Anyways, I’m sorry for my mini rant… Again I know it’s not Julep’s fault and I really didn’t think they’d be able to replace the decals. But I’m happy they are. I can wear them for Halloween like I was planing (^_^).

Anyways….. On to the box!

lol

October 2014 Julep Card

I got the Bombshell box as usual… Here’s what came in that box automatically…

This is Julep’s Night Shift Sleeping Mask. You’re supposed to put it on before you go to sleep and wash it off when you wake up. Though, when I wake up my face is usually squished into my pillows. So, I’m pretty sure it’ll get all over my pillows before I could wash it off lol. I would have to put a towel on my pillows before I used this. But I’ll give it a try. This retails for $34.00 for Non-Mavens and for Mavens it’s $27.20…

Julep Night Shift Sleeping Mask

The Polishes I got are Nancy. This color is a beautiful blueish silver with a sea-foam green tone to it.

Julep Nancy

And Margarita… This is a simple purple polish with a blue undertone to it.

Julep Margarita

Now for my add-ons I got…

Ledi… I’m a sucker for black. Though, this ones more of a charcoal black with silver glitter. I like it. Excited to wear it (^_^).

Julep Ledi

Also got Marla… Love reds! I don’t think a girl can have too many red polishes. They’re always a must in my book. This is more of a burgundy red. with pink sparkle to it from the looks of it.

Julep Marla

As I said in the beginning I did get kitty nail dacals but they were stolen while be shipped… So I don’t have a picture of them… I’ll add it to this post after I get them. (^_^)

and for adding 3 items to my box I got extra polishes. YAY! I got…

Karmen… Okay in the bottle it looks like a orange red polish but swatched it’s pink with orange sparkle lol. I was so surprised when I swatched it. Pretty color nontheless.

Julep Karmen

And also got Catrina… Beautiful bright sunshine yellow… I don’t have many yellow polishes so this was a nice surprise. I think I don’t have many cause I don’t wear bright colors that much. Though, it’s still a very pretty color.

Julep Catrina

So that’s what I got in my October Julep box. I’m very happy with everything I got. I’m irritated that someone snooped in my box and stole something out of it. I’m certain I’ll love the decals when I get them.

Please don’t let that discourage you from getting a box of your own. I’ve had problems with USPS for a long time now. Just never something like this. It’s usually my mail going to the wrong place and never getting it. So yeah, if you wish to sign up you can go here: https://www.julep.com/rewardsref/index/refer/id/507735/

Julep September 2014

As you can see I added polishes to this months box. For the box it self I got…

Julep Card September 2014

This is called Kirby a nice silver glitter polish.

Julep Kirby

This is Eliana its a nice mid-deep blue. reminds me of the ocean for some reason. This went on a little patchy when I swatched it. So it needs at least 2 coats for a nice opaque color payoff.

Julep Eliana

Most of the boxes came with a Plush Pout lip crayon. I got the color Magenta Plum. I almost switched to a nude but I wear plums more so I stayed with this color. Also sense fall is right around the corner.

Julep Plush Pout Magenta Plum

I added on…

This is Mahima. I had to have a gold for fall, well more for Christmas time, hehe. Planning ahead here.

Julep Mahima

This is Ceila. I like mint greens and though this would be pretty to wear.

Julep Ceila

This is Chloe. I don’t have many browns or rusty brown polishes so I added it on to see how it would look on me (^_^)

Julep Chloe

This is Mary Lee. I’m a sucker for deep reds. Oh and it says on the cap that this is a satin finish.

Julep Mary Lee

And of course for adding on 3 or more items I got a surprise Item in my box…

This is Candace. I’m in love! This almost looks exactly like a eye shadow I wear all the time. This just has a light base to it then that shadow. I love it though! Wearing this first hehe.

Julep Candace

This is Daria. I don’t have too many grays so this was a nice surprise (^_^)

Julep Daria

And they also sent candy in it. Not sure what kind they are but the ingredients say there’s pineapple flavor added to it so I’m guessing it’s pineapple lol. Though, I wont be trying it out sense it was processed in a facility that also processes eggs and wheat and those are big no nos for my tummy, so yeah.

Got my August Julep box. For those who don’t know Julep is a beauty subscription box. They say the first box is free but ya just gotta pay for shipping which is only $3.00. So that’s not that bad. But if you continue to get the box, I spend $21.89 per box. Though, they have added the option to completely customize your box. It’s costs $24.99 and I don’t mind not being able to completely customize what I get in my box. I just choose which style of box I want. I usually get the Bombshell box, mostly cause that one almost always has the colors I like. You also have the option to add stuff to your box for a cheaper price then on their store. Including polishes for $4.99. I added things to my box this month and I have to say I’m annoyed. They didn’t send me what I chose. I didn’t get an email asking if they could swap something out or anything. I just got an email saying sorry for the delay in shipping. I emailed them and have yet to receive any word back. I’ll update this post when I hear from them. Sorry for the mini rant, I really do like this box I just get really annoyed when I order something and I don’t get it when I paid for it. It’s why I don’t purchase anything through the E.L.F. Website. Sense it always happens. Anyways, let my know what you think and I’ll put a link at the end of the post if you’d like to try it out too…

Wanted to update ya on this. Julep finally emailed me back yesterday. They’re refunding me my money for the products I did not receive and are giving me the Jules they promised. So everything was straitened out and resolved.

 

August 2014 Julep

So here’s what I got for August…

Julep Glass file (2)

This is Neha, it’s a pretty berry color.

Julep Neha

 

And with Neha I got the shade Tazeen. A nice chunky gold glitter.

Julep Tazeen

 

The Bombshell Box came with a Gel eye glider eye pencil. I chose the shade Rich Brown.

Julep Gel eye glider Rich Brown

So for the addons I added a mystery polish. Though, I got 2 extra polishes soooooo, I’m not sure which one’s the mystery polish and which one is the extra for adding three addons lol. So here’s both polishes…

This is Lilou, it’s a pretty yellow, Sorry for the black specs in the polish, I’m not sure why there was so much dust on these when I cleaned them before I swatched them.

Julep Lilou

 

Here’s the second polish, in the shade Kyla. This is a pretty sparkly orange. Would be nice to wear during Halloween(^_^).

 

 

Julep Kyla

 

Now I’m guessing the rest is the mystery grab bag I ordered…

This is Solace Oil-Free Sunscreen with SPF 30. I’ll admit that’s not high enough for me. I usually use SPF 50 or higher. But this’ll be nice to try…

Julep Sunscreen (1)

Then I got a Glycolic Hand Scrub with Natural Apricot Seeds… never used this but I’m intrigued to try it…

Julep Sunscreen (2)

This is a tiny phone screen cleaner. Which I’ll probably just end up using for my camera lens…

Julep phone Screen cleaner

Eye primer is always a good thing to have…

Julep eye primer

This is a glass nail file. Glass nail files are actually healthier for your nails. I’m not sure why it’s just what I’ve always heard… if you know why then please let me know(^_^).

Julep Glass file (1)

 

Now I would show you what else I ordered but I didn’t get my smoldering eyes kit. So yeah…..

July Julep 2014

As I said in the beginning I usually stick with the Bombshell box and that’s what I got this month. The products in the box were…

Beverly, I think I have a lot of deep berry/wine kind of colors in my collection. I can’t help it, I love darker colors.

Beverly
Lissa, I also have a weakness for blues >.<

Lissa
Bare Body Milk, this is a full size product. This normally retails for $24.00 for non-subscribers and $19.20 for subscribers. This smells really nice, it has a citrus scent to it but it’s not over powering which I like.

Body Milk

 

This month I added on some extra’s. Each were 4.99.

America the Beautiful. This is a beautiful glitter polish. Though, when I tried to put it on, the heat in my house was messing with the texture so it was getting really clumpy and hard to work with. So, I’m wearing Braiden(bottom picture) sense it was easier for me to work with in this heat.

America
Braiden, I couldn’t resist! I love silver polish. This one is a textured polish.

Braiden
Mystery Polish which turned out to be a polish called Cynthia. This is a nice glittery bronze polish with silver and gold sparkles.

Cynthia

 

And for adding 3 things to my box I got a bonus in my box. The left one is called Farrah(this one has a silk finish) and the right one is Alexandra(normal glossy finish)…

Farrah L and Alexandra R

 

I forgot to add in the beginning that each box you get or of you purchase things on the site, you get Jules. And with those Jules you can use them to buy thing or towards a Julep box. Those points will cover the most of the cost if not all for that box. I used my points for this box and only had to pay $10.50. Yay for saving money! lol

I grabbed the shade Anisa they describe it as a classic red with a twist.
