Julep June 2013

Recommended Posts

I'm happy with the spoiler for next month especially since i wasnt so thrilled this month. i have enough jules for a free box and i think i'll be cashing them in... pretty sure i'll be canceling after this month- i dont think the quality of julep is on par with the price point and i havent been overjoyed the colors for a long time.

I've had 2 coats of Etta w/ freedom top coat on my nails since Saturday- it's Friday and I'm still chip free- the ends are starting to wear but that's completely expected. I'm really impressed with juleps formula lately- so much better than the first box that I received about a year ago. I really love their polishes but I'd like to see some more color variety like BL & Deborah Lippmann.

I guess it would be more like a TM in the sense that it is just going to even skin tone and look natural. I think they should invest more money into producing a nail polish that is consistent in performance. I have not been a Maven too terribly long and have enough Julep polish to know they're no all winners. 

This...totally this! Julep is my least favorite nail polish right now. I'm not sure why I don't cancel...I do love the colors; it just doesn't wear well on me.

For me it's the cute bottle - I seriously love it. But... I still have a ton I haven't worn yet and I really need to start skipping if it's not entirely original or different from what's in my collection (that I need to catalog in a bad way, oops!) I'm planning on either dropping or skipping on most of my subs for the summer.

 

And if Julep's leaning towards the sour apple scent formulation... that's even more incentive for me to skip. I really don't like the sour appleish smell, which is funny since "normal" nail polish scent doesn't bother me. Maybe because it's very similar to model paints. (Seche's top coat smells exactly like a bottle of Testor's model paint. Random nerd fact for the day.)

Aw man I am really not into the polish colors this month. Those last five colors look exactly like colors they've released the past few months and the first four feel more fall-ish to me. I'd only be interested in the pinks, and I already have Avery (which is absolutely gorgeous) and enough pale pinks to last me a lifetime. I'd like to try their DD cream, but I just bought a full size tube of the Supergoop CC cream from Birchbox and I'm in love with it.

The colors look "blah" this month and BB cream and some other face products break me out so I'm not interested in the DD cream. This will be a skip month.

I'm actually excited about the beauty items this month and will probably be upgrading...I am crossing my fingers for only cremes and possibly glitter polishes this month!!!  Any like colors I will put into my pile for my beauty boxes I give at Christmas for the ladies in my family.

It's definitely their marketing, at least for me. The packaging, the clues as to what we might get each month and reading the posts on here always draws me further into the likelihood of purchasing that month or at least one polish lol. I ended up purchasing Billie Jean for the color, and that was easy to apply, but I can't stand when they're goopy x_x

i agree with wanting more Mani Pei products; they have yet to produce a holy-grail worthy nail strengthening product.

I was under the impression it was some sort of foundation. It seemed to give full coverage judging by their video. In the description it says "buildable coverage" also being that it is paired with a concealer led me to believe that it was not a BB cream or tinted moisturizer. The big brush you paint it on with does not appeal to me at all. I thought the whole "DD" was them trying to be cute. ha ha! Again, I would have really liked to sample this first in Maven boxes. I sort of feel ripped off of my Maven window.

 

I sort of rolled my eyes at all of this because of the lack of the holy-grail nail product.

 

I am so glad we have the option of skipping boxes!

I am still fairly new with Julep, how much is it to upgrade?

i really think the formula has been excellent the past few months and with the jazz age/may collection set, new polishes released (i.e. tina, billie jean, denver, cody) all of them have been similar and great in quality. i understand the scent thing is personal preference but i find the current odor less offensive than previous ones. i would never buy polish for packaging or branding so i guess i don't understand hating the formula and continuing to subscribe. hopefully the formula will continue to impress? or the DD cream will be a hit?

There's a polish called Denver? I don't care what it looks like I want it, hahaha! I've also been dying to get my hands on a bottle of Lauren but not just because that's my name. :P

I guess I'm weird, because I've been super excited for the DD Cream and can't wait to get to finally try it out!

 

The polish colors look alright to me, but I already have so many of their polishes that at this point I would rather get the skincare ones, or just a couple colors.

 

I still have my whole wardrobe set from last month untouched and I'm considering selling the polishes because I really don't need them!

I'm interested in the concealer,I haven't found a perfect one. I wonder if it's formulated for under eyes or redness from acne scars (me) :(

I don't think you're weird.. I am sure there are plenty of others excited about the DD cream.

 

I REALLY like Billie Jean! It dries to a matte/rubber-like finish, but shines with a top coat. The color is AH-mazing! I am really happy to have gotten it! I know Essie came out with one similar to Billie Jean... I can't remember the name of it though.

 

 

 

ETA: I wanted to add a photo of my quick mani from last week of Billie Jean and Zelda

I don't think I'm allowed to link to her blog... but if you Google Julep Dianna, you'll see one of the colors in this month's selection. Apparently it's named after the lovely lady who runs 'The Budget Babe' site. Kind of cool! And I'm pretty much in love with the color! smile.gif

The burning sun, humidity and pollution not only wipes off your natural glow but also makes your skin rough and unclear. Therefore, it's important to care for your skin to keep it glowing. Here are some skincare tips to follow this summer season: Exfoliate: It's important to exfoliate to your skin to remove the dead skin cells, grim and dirt, especially in the summers. Do this at lease 2-3 a times a week to get good skin.     Make Sunscreen Your BFF: They say, "Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer". The same applies to Sunscreen - Make it your BFF even if you don't like it. Keep in mind, you cannot have good skin if you don't use sunscreen, especially in the summers. So, invest in a good one and ensure application every 2-3 hours.   Drink Lots of Water: This is one of the most important skincare tips to follow during summers. A minimum of 2.5 or 3 liters of water is what you will need to stay hydrated and fresh, which in turn, will also benefit in your skin.   Eat Healthy: It's advisable to eat healthy during summers. Add a lot fruits and green vegetables  to your diet. Also, include fresh juices that will keep your hydrated all day long.

    • I have a question for make up artists. I am a makeup artist working a gig with a photographer for a shoot that’s going to be doing 20 min headshots all day long. I think we have 10 people signed up for one day so far starting at 11am. I’m currently negotiating my fee and am asking $50 a person/ headshot for the day.  I don’t want to underrate myself ( I usually charge a flat fee for one 2-3 hour headshot session) , but I feel this fee is fair given it’s my makeup supplies, time and artistry, and I will be there all day.   Any thoughts or feedback about this and if you’ve had similar jobs that designated a specific fee given the high volume of faces I’ll be doing for this shoot.
    • I want to share with you all a product that has given me incredible results. It is the LED Light mask, each color helps to improve some aspect of the skin, led light therapy is used in spas, saloons... the fact is that I bought it at biomasktherapy.com I got it, I took a picture before using it and after two weeks I noticed some incredible changes, it has improved the acne, spots, wrinkles, it has left the skin clearer and especially I had a big change around my eyes area, is the change that has surprised me most, love it. I use the mask everyday for 30 minutes. I am sharing the photo of before/after two weeks results of use :) What's your experience with LED light therapy? 
    • Well, choosing a right hair straighter is very important. If you go for the choice of a wrong one it may result in damaging your hair in long ru. If asked from me I prefer to use Phillips straightener. Its a good and reputed brand . Also, the quality of product is really good.  Also, you must care about your hair before applying rod or an iron to it. For that you need to take help of hair protecting serums to use before ironing hair. That will prevent your hair from damage.
