Hello! Uh, so, yeah. Wow. It's been a while. I always forget if Blogger uses the date you started a post or the date you finished a post (I think it's the latter), but I'm definitely writing a post about my March 2014 Julep Maven box in April. After I've already gotten my April box. I don't know why I've been avoiding blogging, I really do like it! I mean, I like making videos more, but I still think it's fun.
I have a lot of posts I'm going to try and power through (I also want to make a few videos today as well, not to mention the fact that I have a ton of crocheting to do for the Artist Alley at the convention that starts tomorrow. What have I gotten myself into?!
For March 2014, Julep released the "Riviera Collection"; a collection of very spring-y themed colors as well as some lip glosses and lip treatment goods! I love spring colors, so I was very excited about this collection. I knew immediately what box I was going to go with the second I saw the swatches on the blog, and what do you know? It ended up being the Boho Glam box! As you may or may not, when I took Julep's style quiz many moons ago, it pegged me as a Boho Glam girl. Honestly, that's probably different now (I have my suspicions that I am a Bombshell gal), but in the end it's kind of a moot point since you can just pick whatever box you want anyways. Julep was also nice enough to let us pick what color of gloss we wanted, regardless of what box we picked (before, the gloss color was tied to the box so it was tricky picking which one you wanted; did you pick based on the polish colors or the gloss color?). I was sad that Julep didn't include the new lip treatment goods, a scrub and a balm, in any of the polish boxes, especially since I have waaaaay too many glosses the way it is and really didn't need another one.
Like every month, Julep included a little extra surprise! We've gotten things ranging from nail care goods like files to different kinds of candy (though mostly candy), with my favorite being the flower bobby pins we got in the Jazz collection boxes (which I think was last May). This month, we got candy!
Again like every month, there's also a special inspiration quote!
Finally we get to the actual goodies in my box! As I said, I went with the Boho Glam box and I added on an extra polish, so I got three this month:
Here they are swatched!
You also got to pick a lip gloss shade for your box; I went with "Enchanted", a "sheer watermelon" since I was on a very coral kick.
So that's my Julep Maven box for March 2014! Overall I'm very happy with this box; I think I picked the best colors in the bunch (which is definitely a very personal opinion) and the formals of both the polishes and lip gloss are up to par. The only really disappointing thing about this month's box is that I wasn't able to get the special Pantone color-of-the-year polish, Rae. Not only do I love being trendy and a sheeple, I really, really dig purples right now and Radiant Orchid (the color of the year) is so pretty! I really, really hope Julep brings it back in stock (it is currently out) so I can possibly get it with the free polish I should be getting soon (right? After my April box? I think that's my third...)!
Thanks for reading! <3
