Julep June 2013

Recommended Posts

i just got that purse and someone said it looks a lot like denver. from what i've seen and heard, it's hard to describe them by blue/green as both are not really leaning more towards one or the other. based on google images and owning denver, it seems like dianna is smokier and not as bright/vibrant/dark as denver. however, i've also come across a few images where dianna looks really bright. it seems lighter than denver. this is definitely a hard comparison without owning both so hopefully someone can answer your question. i think if you like a lighter, smokier minty shade, go with dianna. if you want a more seafoamy, brighter and darker shade, go with denver.

I ended up getting Denver last night with my beautybio code $3.50 & free shipping.

Glad to hear that.  I guess I just got a bad bottle then?
Here's something crazy: the first time I tried Dianna, it was awful- patchy & stringy. I was devastated because I loved the color so much. I decided to give it another try & it worked perfectly. Guess the conditions have to be perfect for some of their formulas! I honestly cannot think of what it could possibly be...

I saw on the fb page yesterday that it was on sale for $7 & they sent an email too. I just checked and its back to $11.20 maybe yesterday was the last day.

it definitely was cut short by a few hours because i checked on what should have been the last night. actually, i already own denver so i was just looking for sales and when i searched for denver, it reflected the regular price, but probably would have been the sale price if i had added it to my cart.

Finally got my Julep box today... the DD cream in light works for my skin tone but the concealer is awful and I had to cut the tube open just to get to it!

I noticed that some of you had your boxes cancelled due to missing DD cream.  I still have a couple of polishes from my sneak peek box on my trade list if anyone is interested.  I have Lexie up for trade and I just decided to add Bunny to my trade list.  I like the idea of Bunny, I just don't think I'll actually wear it.

 

I really want to see these nail polishes go to people who will actually use them since I know I won't.

Here are my swatches from the DD Creme... this is the light shade. It blends in, but takes A LOT of blending.

So bad!

 

I was always under the impression concealer should be lighter than skin tone. It seems odd to me they would only have 3 shades.

My concealer also didn't have much in it. I emailed Julep, like some on here had suggested and they emailed back that they were sending me a replacement tube. I haven't received it yet, but I hope it is in light. That is the color I got and it works for me, even though my skin is more medium. I have the DD cream in med. and I like it. Like someone said I like my concealer a little lighter than my foundation to cover my dark circles under my eyes. I would definitely email them.
