i'm sorry to hear you got laid off! i did giggle upon reading it but knew what you meant. =)

 

ugh i'm studying around the clock now that classes are over. it sucks! also, i'm kinda panicking because i have gotten 10s and 11s on the verbal practice tests, much like you, and don't want to bomb =(. i'm also a third year in college so i'm applying this june to md/phd programs. i'm really freaking out about all of it. i feel like i just applied to college and there was so much more guidance about how to do it all and being 20 years old applying to these programs alongside 25 year olds with much more education and experience is intimidating. yikes. =(

pray i get a 34 at least!!! 

also, what about how the majority of applicants never get in anywhere? =(

I got my boho glam box:  my review:

 

 

Alice:  Beautiful. I've been wanting a lavender shade and this one is so girly and I love the subtle silver shimmers.

Millie:  I wasn't expecting to like this bc I'm not a huge blue shade fan but this one is sexy and mysterious.  It looks like a smoky navy on.  I'm wearing it today with rose gold (color club put a pin on it+orly rage) polka dot accent nails.
 
Lipsticks:
Two for Tea: I don't think this even shows up on me.  I've been wearing it as a lip balm.
Satin Doll:  This is super pretty over Benetint.  Makes it corally and is moisturizing.  I've tried it on its own too and with enough layers, is a sheer orangey reddish pink on me.
The pigmented RED (sorry, totally blanking out on the name right now): Very intense.  I like it.  I'm not used to wearing such a opaque red but I think the shade is very wearable and neutral. I think it will be very pretty in the fall too.  
 
Flower pins:  cute flowers in your hair-what's not to like?  Can't wait to pair these up with some jean shorts and lacey crochet tank.

Got my upgrade box yesterday, and I have to say i LOVE all of it!!! Only 2 colors are going to my trade list (the pale peach and pale pink).  I am wearing Gabrielle with an accent nail in Paris.  The formulas and application are fantastic!!

 

I love the lipsticks.  Didn't think I would since I don't wear lipsticks, but I do!  The red actually goes to a nice autumn tone on me, which is perfect since I am an autumn toned girl :)  The smooch scrub is fantastic!! I am so glad I upgraded this month! ♥

I just got my May Flowers set from the secret store and it had the cutest little bracelet with it. It actually fits unlike most bracelets and it is the perfect color to go with my gown for the Army Ball that I am attending tomorrow.

I just joined Julep and I think I have ordered 4 times. I am addicted. Can any of you ladies tell me what kind of goodies they offer during the secret  sale? Are they good deals. I thought I saw some jewelry posted and that peaked my interest.

Yay, I got a shipping notice for something with no order information!  I'm guessing it's the hair clips that were left out of my upgrade box!

Did you have to email them for the hair clips?

The secret store is open to Mavens who purchased a box that month.  The deals are amazing.  A lot (if not all) of the colors are not new but in different pairings, sets, or just select ones on sale.  There's also a few options that will have jewelry.  It's not like the mystery box (I don't think I'll ever try that)...it's just something only mavens who purchased that month get access to (log in, select monthly maven activities, secret store).  I'm pretty sure it's only open until the 3rd of the month though.

 

During this month's secret store I purchased a set of 3 (that were already on my wishlist) for a whopping $13.99!  That's less than the price of 1 at the maven discount!  ((I know everyone is aware I'm just super happy, lol)).  And there's still free shipping.

Hi all! I just joined after lurking for a while.

 

I passed on the May box inititally. Then I did the beauty profile survey, got the 50% off code for a polish, put America the Beautiful in my cart, and then... I kept on looking! I wound up buying a May Bombshell Box, anyway! I'm not a red lipstick person, but the packing is so nice and the polish colors look great.

Yep. It took them a few days to respond and another few days to get the shipping notice.

New Mystery Box. I keep saying I'm done with mystery boxes but I'm tempted!

 

http://www.julep.com/may-mystery-box.html

 

You’ll love the Hooray for May! Mystery Box. Unpack $70-$200 worth of pretty polish. We created two new brights to take you from spring to summer, and your box is guaranteed to include at least one of them.

 

A little something extra… You’ll also get a bonus nail color in a cute giftable bag. Surprise a friend (aren’t you sweet?) or keep it for yourself (we won’t tell).

Pretty sure that definetly means that they are never going back to the $19.99 price. I had hope that maybe they were just testing out the higher price, but obviously it's working out for them. Boo! I like the idea of a new bright color but I have kicked myself for every mystery box since the New Years one. I don't want to spend $25 and risk getting more fall colors again lol.

I'm afraid of dupes and without any hints I'm not going to bite the $25 price tag. I'll save my money for my next box.

The price and high possiblity of dupes is why I haven't jumped on it (yet). I haven't been thrilled with the last couple of mystery boxes either.

    • Hey! I don't really use primers but I'm sure someone else who will come across this post might be able to answer!  For the oily skin, I would recommend putting setting powder on your face, mist it with setting spray (Lightly) THEN apply foundation.. give that a try. Also a great tip for oily skin is use waterproof mascara instead of normal... as normal mascara will transfer onto your under eye area over time and upper lid due to oils.  Also Mac foundation has great coverage for any blemish and scarring. I'm just looking on google now and it seem to highly recommend Charlotte Tilbury's airbrush foundation.. I know that brand is more on the pricy side.. but its worth checking in store and getting one of the girls there to do a test on your skin before purchasing.  Hopefully theres something useful you can take from this. let me know if you come across other tips that work!  x  Linda 
    • @Beautybyluo Yes!  I use and love ELF 16HR Camo Concealer in "fair" since my so pale.  The coverage on this concealer is great.

    • Cleansers Just like you wash your hair and body, it’s important to use a cleanser (made just for your face) to wash your skin. Rabach recommends cleansing twice daily. “Cleansing helps remove dead skin, reduce oils in acne prone skin, remove buildup of bacteria and yeast that live on the skin, remove pollutants that collect on the skin during the day, and remove all makeup, so pores do not get clogged.” she says. We think that’s motivation enough.   Toner First things first: if you want to keep your routine quick, skip this step! If not, we like a toner to: 1. truly make sure the skin's got a perfectly clean canvas post-cleansing and 2. either add hydration or exfoliation to our routine. Dr. Rabach recommends making sure your toner is oil-free.   Serum Serums are one of the best ways to address your personal skin concerns. "A VIta a to Zee Vitamin C serum is a skincare product designed to deliver a high concentration of a specific active ingredient to the skin," dermatologist Dr. Zeichner says, adding that they're usually designed to "perform a single job, whether that is to hydrate, protect, brighten, calm, or even the skin." It's important to make sure you're choosing a serum that's actually right for you. One thing dermatologists agree on is using an antioxidant serum (like Vitamin C) in the morning.  
    • i guess all the products of FACES CANADA are just so good. i have been using it for like 6 years now and it is up to date till now. i would surely recommend you to use this..
