Second post for today! I couldn’t resist because…I just got my January 2013 Julep Maven Box in the mail! I was a little sad that all the colors were neons this month, but I am really happy with the box I chose. I’m normally the American Beauty profile, but I changed to Bombshell this month.
Here’s a shot of the entire box contents.
There were three neon twist bands included as a surprise. These little guys are cropping up in almost every monthly beauty subscription box!
Two polishes: One is Ava and she is a gorgeous light pink with shimmer. The second is Bette who is a neon purple. It reminds me a lot of Andrea’s Choice Circus Tightrope so maybe I’ll have to swatch those two next to each other.
The lids each came with a swatch sticker on top.
Julep has redesigned their tops so you can pop it off and swatch the lid of the polish. I think it’s a really neat idea! A lot of the time, you can’t really tell what a polish looks like just by looking at the bottle. They can really dry differently!
We also received a hand and cuticle stick. AS with all their hand-care products, it smells divine. I will probably pop this into my purse because it’s a lot less messy than their cuticle oil (which I also love).
Lastly, we got a sheet of the swatch stickers. There are 20 stickers on this sheet so I can make swatches for 20 different polishes. Should I just pick my favorites? Or save it for the weird ones? I don’t know!
