Julep September 2013 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

I wish I hadn't skipped, but I have almost 100 bottles of polish!

I just opened up Alice, the pretty shimmer lavender from a couple months back and I really really love that color.

Originally looking at it, it didn't strike me as particularly special, but then this week for whatever reason, I really really wanted to wear that color, so it was awesome to find it!

CaliMel, you sound like me ... I don't have THAT many polishes, but I do sometimes I forget I have colors...that is why I want to display mine on racks, because with them just in a box, I forget! I really do ... could I have Nailzheimer's Disease??? Sorry ... I couldn't resist ... I know how serious Alzheimer's is ... I have family members on both sides of my family suffering greatly from this desease right now.

400400 got mystery box 1, spf hand cream, January, fina, coco (dupe but one of my favorites!!) And alfre and earrings and oxygen nail treatment. Overall I like everything. However I thought the "golden" mystery box would be more spectacular.

Has Julep let slip any spoilers about what kind of colors/finishes we can expect for September yet?

I think Julep tried to put a box together focusing on hands. The jewelry and candy were nice treats. I am overall pleased with my boxes. I received version 2 and 3; no dupes.

Oooh La La!  I love the orange.  A hunter green accent nail with a clear gold glitter topcoat would look so Fall-ish.  Great inspiration with the pictures.  :)

I really wanted to pick up the Suede Collection, but alas, it still shows Out of Stock! I'm hoping the Golden Mystery Box doesn't contain the Champagne Trio, since I bought it as an add-on for August box.

Good to know!  I received my first box last month and am in LOVE.  I bought the Trio as an add-on this month, as well.

Is anyone going for the Andy Warhol set (Abbie, Amy, Reagan and Cody)?  I own all but Abbie, but I have Charlie and Nikki.

I got Abbie in a set during the warehouse sale and it's the first Julep polish I've experienced the dreaded staining with, and of course since it is yellow my nails now look like I have jaundice :- lol! So if you do decide to get it, make sure you use a base coat (because I don't think I did and I'm having the hardest time getting the stain out!)

Abby is the worst polish when it comes to staining. I used julep base coat & it didn't matter- it's been 2 months & I swear I can still see staining. If anyone wants it Pm me & u can have it!! Just send me a self addressed envelope- it's only been used for 2 accent nails

I had used a base coat and it still stained my nails. :(

Thanks ladies for the info. It didn't occur to me that there maybe issues with staining. I have Zoya Liberty pixie dust and I use a white polish underneath. It protects my nails from staining. This might work for Julep as well.

Liberty was the worst staining I had ever seen. I soaked my nails in warm water, baking soda & peroxide for 10 minutes & it came right off. However, I'll try the white underneath next time! Thanks for the tip.

Where were you ladies last week! :) I had terrible staining from Liberty. I'll definitely keep the white polish in mind for next time and I'll try the baking soda/peroxide soak if I have staining issues in the future.

I used a base coat and a white polish under Abbie and it still stained.

See, I guess my question is how does some thing like that get past quality control?  And who is determining that a product that stains that badly is acceptable to sell?  I understand that some polishes will stain, but with a base coat and a white polish, to me, that would be unacceptable.

I agree luckyme. That means the color bled through the protection base AND another polish!! There should be a caution or advisory about the polishes that stain, especially the ones that are worse than others.

what beauty products are you all hoping for? they just came out with the one-use masks but i would like a set of three tubes that they could sell individually in larger sizes. however, they haven't done anything like that (i.e. with the lipsticks in may being mini and never sold individually or larger or expanded into more colors). they have had the warming foot scrub in the sale section since the savvy deal page existed so i bet they're reformulating it (they've reformulated the hand scrub and hand cream).

i don't like the 'workhorse' type products like the foot stick- i'd rather have the pampering ones. i would be interested in a foot scrub, cuticle/nail treatment, moisturizing or blackhead removal mask.. i'd especially like an anti-aging, moisturizing eye cream and cooling eye de-puffer.

Hmmmm....that is a great question. Since last month I've been thinking about what would really WOW me in a box/collection. Honestly, I love EVERY SINGLE color I got last month. I liked the mix of cremes and shimmers. But the foot stick seemed really blah... So...which products did I love? The lipstick- specifically the red. Also, the mighty cuticle oil is awesome. I also like the freedom topcoat & rock star hand Creme. So, with these things in mind, a glass nail file (I know they have one, but it is never in stock!) or body scrubs & lotions in new scents would be winners in my book. I'm hesitant to ask for any facial treatments because I'm really picky about what I put on my face. I'd be happy to try out new things, but I'm just not sure that is the best direction for Julep to go. Maybe they should ask us Mavens for input on products in the works. Maybe put a few small samples in boxes & have us pick which ones (if any) we would like for them to develop? I just like the idea of having input in developing new products! Sorry for the long post, but this is something I've been mulling over for a while.

    • Major beauty packaging companies decided to launch paper cosmetic tube for the consumers. These tubes are more eco-friendly.  This was  announced at  Luxe Pack Monaco. Major plastic part will be replaced with a bio-based, paper-like material.  Production is expected to start  in the mid of 2020. The replacement of plastics is environment friendly and  a cardboard-based tube will be a good achievement to save environment.
    • Hey guys! I want to make a great gift for my girlfriend, has anyone used this nail polish set from Aliexpress? What do you think? it is a good choice for a gift? Nail Polish Set. Thanks!
    • I made another payment on my credit card, and the remaining balance is now $140.  Yves Rocher Beauty Advent Calendar so far:  Day 1 - Sel D'Azur perfume - I've been wanting to try something from Yves Rocher's extensive line of new perfumes. This one is meant to evoke a walk on the Amalfi coast, with citrus and sea salt.  Day 2 - First Snowflakes Shower Gel - One of the new limited edition holiday products. This is lovely! It's white almond, but less sweet and more powdery than the Perlier White Almond, which I also love. I might have to get the big bottle!  Day 3 - Cream shampoo with avocado - also a new product I haven't tried yet. Very good shampoo that brings out natural waves.  Day 4 - Four sided nail file - A good file that really is effective.  Day 5 - Micellar water for sensitive skin.  Day 6 - Clear base coat for nails.  Day 7 - Face cream for sensitive skin.  I had a really hard time going back to work after Thanksgiving. But after Monday, it's been quite slow, thank goodness. They are allowing people to volunteer to leave early. I never do, even though I feel tired and burned out, because I'm so focused on my financial goals. I have been watching a vlogmas on You Tube from the channel iseedee. This is a Swedish girl who is frugal yet glamorous, and has inspired me in my No Buys. Her vlogmas (or Christmas Countdown 2019 as she calls it), is simple yet so beautiful and cozy. She is so organized, and really knows how to celebrate the holidays. She makes a simple Saturday of doing laundry and going grocery shopping seem special. I guess she personifies what you would call Hygge. iseedee is going through The Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendar. She has the big one with the full sized items. This is the only vlogmas I've been keeping up with.  I've been Christmas shopping (for other people, not for myself, lol), and also I'm going to be organizing the buffet at my church later this month. So I don't think I can pay any more on my credit card until Boxing Day. That's the day I am hoping to pay it off!!! After that I might buy myself a little treat or two, and then organize my plan for the New Year.
