Yes. I meant that day with the Drew debacle. Glad CS are taking care of the problem for you.
I saw that blue in the boho glam intro box. I hope that it Will be available for us to purchase. It is gorgeous.

the blue is marion and the green is courteney; they're both much, much older shades. i heard the product might be in the august box from people discussing it on FB but those shades are definitely not new. it would annoy me that the intro boxes contain the new product, although i don't really have a reason other than knowing people could have bought it several days ago with the free box code and not continue on as a maven... mavens are supposedly the first to have new items from julep.

i really need spoilers. like that one time when they put the june collection image up on their youtube page and it served as unconfirmed since there was no real way of telling if they were new or older shades outside of speculation.

 

illl be stalking this link http://www.julep.com/AUGUST-MAVEN until it's up and running (it's always the link for the collection, whenever they have it running)

Try to hang on until Friday night/Saturday morning before you buy any more polish! The Maven window will be open .... and the decisions will have to be made! Do we stay strong? Or cave ...... anybody know if you can use partial Jules/partial payment to pay for an upgrade?

I'm pretty sure you can't make a partial payment with your Jules (if I understood your question).  I tried that last month, when I had only accumulated a small number of Jules, and it didn't work.  I think if you want to upgrade from the $20 box to the $55 total upgrade, you need 3500 jules (since a jule appears to equal a penny).

I know that on Pinterest they had emerald and wrote sneak peak on it last week smile.gif
post #127 of 1450

Emerald is the color of the year. :) I would like some emerald nail polish!

what about angela and angelina? both are very recent.. as is esmeralda

 

 

also, the emerald board on their pinterest is more forest/hunter green than the pantone, color-of-the-year-determined shade of emerald. i really really love those an iota more than the pantone shade but still.

It doesn't seem very likely to me that the new foot cream would be the product for August. They already have a foot cream and August is supposed to be a special month so I'm just guessing it will be something new and more exciting than foot cream. That's just my guess tho!
post #130 of 1450

I've heard a lot of talk about Bondi. This Julep August box has to be out of this world almost to keep a lot of mavens subscribing. 

 

 

On that though an out of this world space theme would be kind of cool! :D

how awesome would a fall nyc box be? a bordeaux and nude for the upper east side, creme mustard and metallic orange for soho, a medium and cool-toned leaning metallic foresty green and rusty creme with glitter for brooklyn, a white black cream glitter for queens, gray pink duochrome shimmer and dark chocolate creme shimmer (like faye but a little less warm and way darker) for manhattan.. i could go on if i had more time. and wanted to sound crazier than i do.

This sounds lovely. Sounds very sophisticated which I like very much!

I prefer the Freedom top coat over Seche Vite.  I haven't had the same shrinkage problems and I've found the wear and shine to be comparable.

 

I'm about halfway through my first bottle of the Freedom top coat, and it is starting to thicken up.  I had the same problem with Seche Vite.

Thanks, this is very helpful.  I may order a bottle of the Freedom TC if there's a tolerable deal on offer.

I would love a NYC box!

post #137 of 1450

They've been doing a lot of destination boxes so who knows it could be totally possible!

post #138 of 1450

They also posted a picture of them in NYC on Instagram. So its totally possible! Although I don't know if they would do two cities back to back?

I'm still on the fence. At least Seche Vite lets you know it is going to thicken up and sells Restore alongside the top coat.

I like it, although I wouldn't pay the full price for it either.  Julep's prices are way over inflated, IMO.

I didn't realize we got the new items first. Another nice touch by Julep marketing.

I agree that some things are, but if you are a Maven, the price is just about right. And if you wait until the Secret Store and catch some of the other specials during the month, they are really better prices than some other brands that aren't as nice in quality.

Waiting for tomorrow night ... hoping to get a sneak peek of the August collection! What do you think of when someone says August? In Tennessee, it's back-to-school time. For a lot of people though, it's when they take their summer vacation. Could the August collection be vacations? Have you seen the ad for Julep colors based on where you are going for vacation?

post #144 of 1450

Has everyone seen the update that Julep's Freedom Top Coat is going to be on HSN tomorrow night?

I like this question!  August for me is dark summer colors, rather than the pastels of spring and June.  Olive, black, eggplant, ripe tomato--ripe produce and heat-burnished vegetation.

In Connecticut with school just out on June 23, August means the real summer is here. We always think of the dog days and the heat waves and being able to swim outside at night. It's still full summer for us and I love it. Maybe Julep will continue to do a summer collection for our August dog days. Surfs up anyone.

In CT for us it also means back to school. it is a huge vacation month for us though.

I think of August as the last month of Summer and my last chance to enjoy it. I don't associate it with Fall at all other than fall fashion shows up on the shelves...no one wears fall stuff here until mid to late September though. I really want to like the whole collection this month, the colors and beauty products. I can't wait to see it!
