Julep May 2013

Recommended Posts

i hadn't gotten anything from the april brights collection or anything around that time when people were talking about the funky sour apple/skunk/weed(? yikes! =D) smell but with the beauty bio discount i ordered tina and denver from the may flowers set; the sour apple scent isn't super offensive but it's definitely there and it lingered faintly on my hands (so i only smelled it when my hands were near my face) for about 24 hours. i can't imagine it really bothering people because the regular nail polish scent is a little more offensive and lingers just the same.

 

 

almost all of the may mystery boxes look great to me! i can't risk dupes though (it would really annoy me) and since i'm picky, i haven't seen a set of mystery boxes any other time that i really liked. there was only one version of the may mystery box that i would't have been thrilled with. oh well though, better than being out $25 with the chance i didn't like the box and being unable to spend more money for the june collection.

Thanks, I sent them an email, hopefully they'll stick the pins in with my next box.
They sent mine separately, so I didn't have to wait until next month!

The scent didn't bother me per se.. it was just odd and unexpected.

it's probably just a glitch but when you go to julep's website, a few of the may collection items are visible. the lip scrub and etta both have the add to cart option and you can go ahead and check out with them. if you click on them anywhere else on the website, they show up as out of stock. just letting you guys know in case you're hoping to get your hands on either of these.

That's such a clever way to use the ribbon!! It goes with the nail polish really nicely.

That is great, congrats. Nice to see a MT member win!
DITTO!! Now, lets see the colors on your nails, the prize?? I switched my profile from BoHo (intro box) to Classic with a twist because I needed nude colors for base to make nail art and colors to pop. I added three more polishes: Lexie (Bright yellow BoHo glam), Payton (Bright green IT Girl), and Bunny (White with gold shimmer). I selected Light for DD cream. I'm hesitant to try because it has some silicones. It always breaks me out yet it is a water based product so I'm willing to try it. It's shame that it isn't matte. If it doesn't work for me; then I'll use it for contouring or whatever if I make it to work. I didn't want to go with medium shade which I am. By the description and look of their sample pictures, it looked too yellow. I tend to wear with pink hues. I was a little surprised about the mark up with the entire collection costing $55 which is a lot for a sub box. Look forward to it and experiment!

According to Julep's website, they would start billing on the 27th which is tomorrow. That's Memorial Day. Wonder if they'd start to deduct or ship out as if they forgot that its a Memorial Day?

    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now.
