Hello! Are you guys getting excited for Valentine's Day? I know, I know, it's a stupid mushy holiday that pushes the idea that you need to be with someone to be worthwhile and to find happiness and it was invented by the greeting card and candy companies to squeeze more money out of us. But you know what? I wouldn't want to live in a world where it doesn't exist. Holidays are important to me; they exist, not to make us spend money, or feel inadequate or lonely, but to give us something to look forward to, to mark the passage of time in a meaningful way. If there weren't holidays, what would be the point of living? Every day would pass and be relatively the same; few things to look forward to, few things to break up the monotony of being a contributing member of society. For me, and I know this might sound sad, holidays are one of the things that make life worth living. No matter which ones you celebrate nor how you celebrate them, holidays are there are fun! And love! And living life to the fullest!
Huh, didn't expect a soapbox rant so soon! Anyways, I'm excited for Valentines Day, and I hope you are too, even if you're just planning on spending a quiet evening at home. I'm really excited for my subscription boxes this month; I hope they have some love/Valentines Day themed items. As usual, my Julep Maven box actually got to me before the month the collection is released began, so, as also per usual, it will be the first box for February 2014 I'll be able to show you guys! Unfortunately, it wasn't as Valentines Day-ish as I had hoped, but it was still a pretty good box.
As you may have concluded, February's collection is all about drama!
I'll start with the newest, but least dramatic product: the Eye Sheen Liquid Eyeshadow.
Overall, this was a pretty meh box, but that's my fault for not picking a different box! I really like the new Eye Sheen liquid eyeshadows and Cameron is a gorgeous, if not very unique, color and finish. I think if I had gone with the Modern Beauty box instead, I would have been much happier. Oh well, there's always March!
Thanks for reading! <3
