Julep October 2013 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

I totally agree about the lack of "wow" from the beauty product.  I love my Urban Decay products too much, and I just bought some of their holiday sets, so no thank you, Julep!

 

I can't believe I'm saying this, but unless they offer some seriously amazing colors this month, I may be skipping.  I'm seriously losing interest fast.  The "extra" nail polish remover pad last month was so disappointing compared to the lip balm, hair pins, etc. that we've received in previous months, and I'm seriously frustrated with this DHL crap....my mystery box hasn't moved out of WA  and it's been almost a week!

You know what I find funny?  Before September boxes went out they were all, "We're staying positive about the switch to DHL" with their fingers stuck in their ears to everybody's concerns.

 

Now all this crap is going on with shipping... where are they now?  I don't see any comments on the fiascos from them... I love how they aren't addressing any of this bull crap.  Just shoving it under the rug more, like they always do.  I guess they are still busy being positive about the changes! :-P

Well, maybe I'm the lone wolf here, but I'm excited about the eyeliner. What I'm not excited about is the $19.99 price tag for it and the sharpener. I know I buy UD for the same price, but it is a new product. I'm totally willing to give it a try & I'm hoping that there will be a nail polish combo I'm into that includes the eye pencil. I love eye makeup! :)

I would be more excited if it were different colours and/or if it were a different type of eyeliner. Black/brown pencil seems about as safe as you can get. I would love to try gel. All I know is about 90% of pencil I've tried (including "high end" brands sent to us by ipsy, etc) bleed. Not looking forward to that after the fiasco that was definitely the DD creme. It's definitely given most of us a reality check on Julep's products.

I am this close to dropping Julep, but I still really like most of their polishes. I just realized a few months ago that cheap eyeliner is so not worth it. I'm not saying $20 is cheap, but Julep does tend to mark up the value of their beauty stuff, so the real value and quality might not be $20's worth.

 

I'm just sick of the "good" items being makeup and skincare, and the "good" polish colors being add-ons. I get that it's a way to make more money, but I'm not shelling out $20 for a box of colors I don't like just to pay $5 extra to buy one I do like. (Or $20 for a box with some eyeliner similar to so many others, plus a few ok-ish polishes.) I signed up for a nail polish subscription, so I want nail polish! I did love that last golden mystery box I got, so I wish they'd do more polish-only boxes. Every month for the past few months, the polish-only box has not been something I want.

 

I really, really hope the actual polish colors are good. October is an excellent month to try something different and fun. We'll see, I guess!

Not excited for eyeliner.  I have way too many black eyeliners and I just never use them.  

 

I am excited to see the nail colors though.

Hmmm I finally have enough points for a free box, so I'm hoping this month will be good.  I dont need another eyeliner though and I wouldn't use a pencil style one if I did.  I really hope the other product is good but then again I still haven't even used any of the polishes or the Bare Face from last month so maybe I should take that as a sign....and I think I've only used 1 or 2 of the polishes that I got in the warehouse sale....yikes, maybe Julep just isnt exciting for me anymore :eek:

Help, drowning in black eyeliners as it is... Seems like every other free gift or Beauty Bar box I get has a black eyeliner. My eyelashes are pale blonde so black eyeliner often looks awkward on me (have to take forever working it into my heavily mascara'd lash line). I hope this is the Modern Beauty product. But even if not, I'll probably get it anyway. They seem to be in love with this on Facebook.

Updates =)

 

I haven't gotten a monthly Julep box in a long time but I find myself in the mood for new nail polishes recently. Gonna hold off on making purchases until I see what Julep has to offer this month!

One of the last things I need is another eyeliner. I literally just got a black pencil liner from Ipsy a few days ago that I will probably never use since I have a stash of about 20 at home. Almost every Urban Decay pallet I have ever purchased came with a 24/7 liner in Zero, and somehow I just have a large stash of eyeliners in general. I also have recently started to use liquid liner that I am liking more. If the polish colors are good I'll still get the box, but the eyeliner certainly isn't enticing to me.

KAJAL is the operative word in the eyeliner selection. I just bought Loreal's Smouldering Voluminous Eyeliner a couple of weeks ago from Beauty.com. Check out what they say about Kajal. So I won't be looking to purchase Julep's version so soon.

 

Hoping the other product is more to my interest ....but still looking forward to seeing the selection window. 

 

Looking forward to the It Girl colors being more "It Girl" than last two months! Although, since someone pointed out last month that the It Girl box is cheaper in retail value than the other boxes. In the beginning, I wanted It Girl girls, not only for the fashion-forwardness, but also because it was all nail polish.

 

Mainly, I hope they don't add an absolutely gorgeous color as an add-on in a blatant attempt to make more money.

 

And I never did get an email regarding the retiring colors ....

I may be getting a little "out of hand" with my nail polish addiction. That nice new shelf my husband bought me was filling up fast, so he decided to COUNT them ... oh, no ... he now thinks I have EXACTLY 100 bottles of polish... But my basecoats and top coats and cuticle remover and cuticle oil bottles are not on the shelf... This means I have averaged 25 bottles per month...it's all Julep's fault for all the special sales like the Warehouse Sales and the curated sets in the Secret Store ... and I did have three colors BEFORE my addiciton started ... and .... and... and.... uh-oh, I don't know if a rack was a good idea!

Well since it looks like my Bondi won't be here till October I've got a new wishlist for Julep. An emerald green jewel tone. Something just a shade or two darker than Angelina. And a dark red with silver undertones. Or a true black.

Add me to the meh-on-black-liner crowd.  I think I have a black liner in every formulation -- pencil, gel, liner -- and I just don't use them except as a base for a duochrome eyeshadow, and even that is a rarity.  If it was blackened color, I would be all over it.  Royal purple and forest green?  Pretty much my dream combination.  Black and brown?  Zzzzz.

Julep Susie is a huge lemming for me. I have absolutely no reason to want this polish because I literally have like 5 other mint colours and like it'll probably be a disappointment, but if I get the text discount it'll be $1 which is even cheaper than trading for it.

 

BUT. BUT I LITERALLY HAVE Zoya Neely, Essie Mint Candy Apple, OPI GGG and in a similar family BL Bossy Boots and Julep Denver which I don't even like.

 

Basically I just hoard mint/pale green polishes. do I need it? I feel like I don't but I want it, but I also feel like I could use that $1 to buy another colour...which I don't already have like 4 of. talk me in/out of it? ._. I'm supposed to be on a low-buy and I have enough polishes so I wouldn't get to it for a while but... $1 susie T_T

Also adding myself to the "meh" reaction to the eyeliner. I have too many black eyeliners as it is - no brown, I think, so maybe if the colors are great I'll end up using at least one end. Still I've definitely been craving some fall-like bold eyeliner colors like meaganola suggested - royal purple and forest green would've been awesome! Still it makes sense, they had to appeal to the masses.

Lol Kyuu! I feel like this shoulda been posted in the no/low buy thread, they'd whip you into shape. Oh wait, I'm here right now so... BACK AWAY FROM THE "ADD TO BAG" BUTTON! If you feel you really need to break your low-buy, maybe experiment and try a new color for the $1! You already know you love mint colors, so one idea might be to take a risk on a color you're not too sure about and that you don't have a similar for in your collection? 

  Also I'm not sure how often you do your nails, but I probably have like 5 or 6 teal colors that I've only used once in the course of 5 months since I only do mine twice a week at most. So think about how often you'd really truly use Susie (or any new polish for that matter, but since we're not in the low buy thread, I'll go easy on you, haha!)

Tomorrow! :) I honestly don't have high hopes considering I've skipped probably the last 6 months but I'm still a little excited at the small possibility of pretty colors. :) yeah, the eyeliner doesn't excite me since ive become lazy and haven't been wearing makeup. Now, if it was a lip gloss, it might be a diff story ;)

While im not incredibly thrilled this months product is eyeliner, I'm happy its something ill actually use since the only thing i actually ever do is my eye makeup, my stock of black liner isn't at its all time high.

 

Hoping the colours are super awesome though, with some form of green :D

I'm actually crazy about eyeliners.

Particularly black/brown.

I did just buy a MUFE eyeliner, but I'm crazy enough that I'll get the Julep one too-- if the polish colours are good.

Tomorrow, tomorrow, the sun (uh, I mean the selection window) will come out tomorrow ... I know "Annie" is not "The Wizard of Oz," but wouldn't it be AMAZING if Julep offered us Mavens a chance to get the Oz Collection at Maven prices??? That would be my ultimate surprise and completely make me wait FOREVER for DHL shipping to receive THAT!!!

Oooh, I like these a lot surprisingly and don't have dupes for either! But...

only thing I guess is I can't see myself wearing the black latex finish very often. And hopefully the little glitters show up in Valerie unlike the gold glitters in Bunny :P

I tried this new sponge Korean gradient lipstick that  made my lips pop See for yourself. You have to try bel- la nyc.

    • I would definitely go for elongated toilet. We have two of these installed in our house and I'm so used to those. Though American Standard is a decent brand which I was using in my old house, but nowadays Woodbridge is my choice. T0001 is a good choice indeed, it's even mentioned on Sanitaryreview as one of the best choices due to it's compact size and minimalistic design. Though I must say that you posted a wrong photo, T0001 is has more cubic shape.
