So a couple of weeks ago I posted that the Julep Maven Box was on special and you could get it for the cost of shipping. I got mine last week.
Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I wish I was more impressed. I’ve never used Julep nail products before. I received:
Oxygen Bonding Base Coat- I guess it’s ok.
Nail Color in Fifi (top) and Whitney (bottom). Fifi is STREAKY. After three coats it still didn’t cover. Whitney is a Greige (they describe it as a mushroom grey beige) color, and it’s not bad. I wore it for a couple of days before it started to chip, and that’s pretty normal for me. It reminds me of Below Deck by China Glaze. It’s a hard color for me to pull off personally, but I really liked it anyway.
Lip Gloss in Charming
This is a pink toned VERY SHEAR lip gloss. It doesn’t show up on me at all. It also doesn’t stay on my lips for very long. I thought I must have something similar but I didn’t find anything in my collection of similar colors that was a spot-on dupe.
As I was taking these pictures I realized there was no way to tell you which one is the Julep one, so I grabbed some black liner and circled it!
Overall, this box was a good deal for $5. I wouldn’t pay $25 for it. The only thing I’ll use is the Whitney polish. I think part of the problem was the profile I filled out. I said I wanted a classic/neutral look, and these three colors definitely apply. But to be honest I was pretty bored.
I have holographic polishes on the way to me in the mail right now. I’ll play with those and share them if they’re any good!
