Julep October 2013 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

Today I received my Creepy order that I placed on Tuesday evening. For dhl standards I would consider that fast shipping! I'm happy. What I am not happy about is that I was charged $3.99 for shipping. I was definitely signed in to my maven account when I made this purchase and I definitely selected free shipping. I have shot Julep an email so hopefully they can remove that charge. The creepy set was a great deal for $9.99 and showed up with a little bonus item, I'm on my phone so can't do a spoiler right now but it was not very exciting.
You're lucky! I ordered my candy corn set Tuesday morning and its still in WA :( I'm actually excited for the window to open tomorrow! It's been awhile since I could say that. I also have enough Jules for a free box - score!

I don't have enough Jules for a box, but I just sold some perfume oil, so I have a little more wiggle room in the budget! I'm saving my Jules up for a free box for January anyway (January baby over here! I need to do a little more digging into what non-food-related companies do birthday things since my birthdays are more than slightly lackluster, and I want *something* fun to mark the occasion). ETA: Actually, I think I *do* have enough for a free box! I'm still going to save them for January, though.

I decided to try them more as a stencil just to get the outline.  It worked okay, considering it was my first attempt.  I just don't have the patience it takes to do good nail art, but at least I attempted something different :).

I used Char, Nicolette, and Payton. For a white polish, I was impressed with Nicolette.  I just ordered Butter London's Cotton Bud, so I'll have to compare the two.

I have stickers that I can stick on the nail and paint over or use as guides to make a clean edge (chevron & french tip shapes) but are meant to be peeled off but it sounds like these are meant to be left on, so that answers my question. Thanks!   :)

hi everyone! i've been absent forever (since august). i don't have a lot of time to come on here with my school and work schedule... i also avoid looking at too much shopping-related stuff because then i want to buy it all!

 

im not that impressed with the november collection but i found it nice for people who are new to polish... there are of course a few shades i like (the cocoa color in particular). i also really like the idea of a lip primer but it's not even the main beauty item and i definitely don't want gloss. i also find that julep products always feel incredibly nice but might not be the best in functioning. the makeup face primer is nicely textured but not my favorite for making my foundation last all day. anyways, i'm taking my time enjoying the september and october collections; i upgraded in september for free with joules and then picked it girl with the yellow, valerie and beatrix add-ons.

 

i don't know if you all saw the fire and ice butter london duos that are ulta exclusive. omg, they are gorgeous: one is metallic night blue with a blue and silvery opal flaky top coat. the other is a dark metallic red with a similar golden flaky top coat.

 

speaking of top coats, i am totally drooling over some of the new sephora x polishes (i.e the sparklers and explosives) as well as glittery top coats from deborah lippmann. i'm OBSESSED with glitter and be gay. across the universe rocks, too.

 

speaking of sephora, all that hard core no-buy saving for months has gone out the window for holiday sets. i picked up the hourglass trio of ambient powders, the tarte blush palette, the tarte liner set, and the occ lip tar set of four minis (these are so insanely nice and it's an amazing set). clearly WAY TOO MUCH MONEY went to sephora and i still want the set of 12 mini occ lip tars.

Have you tried  the hourglass trio? I have been wanting to try them but they are a bit spendy. I had no idea they put a trio out till  I read your post. I want it badly.7b.gif

I was wondering where you were :icon_smil I have the Lippmann jewel heist glitters and they are gorgeous! I'm pretty sold on the new sephora polishes too but they aren't in my budget right now. I'm avoiding sephora at the moment. The holidays are always the most tempting time of year for me there. I am planning on picking up the mini lip tars in November though! I've never heard of those hourglass powders before. How do you like them?

the hourglass trio is phenomenal and i have never ever used a finishing or setting powder. i never use any type of all-over powder. the dim light and radiant light are available full size. the dim light is a good powder for all over and the radiant light is great to where you put your bronzer. the incandescent light is a really natural looking highlight. i read that these powders were designed by the hourglass person because her mom or someone was involved in light design and was influenced by the fact that people look better in certain types of light. the incandescent light is not a super strong highlight so most people will be delighted; i'm all about a strong highlight on the cheeks so this one is perfect for above the inner part of the brow and the cupid's bow of the lips. 

 

the dim light shade does exactly what it says- it makes your skin look ambient and glowy... it's healthy but not shiny. i was really skeptical in store but my friend also bought; swatching it previously on her hand showed that super natural glow. being limited edition and flying off the shelves, i decided to take it home and try it out. in store, the blurring efffects were immediate. there was absolutely no caking of the powder (i'm young but very conscious of the lines under my eyes and the super super fine ones on my forehead that can look worse with powder). you couldn't tell i was wearing powder with the dim light shade all over. the other two, incandescent and radiant, have shimmer in them. if you HATE any glitter whatsoever, you might want to pick up dim light.

 

summary: dim light is the light of my makeup routine, yours too! the trio is delicious for all over lighting types.

occ has a huge set of lip tars (12 minis) that i'm going nuts for... i hope they put out good coupons this year so i can pick it up.

also, black metal dahlia is insanely stunning... i have the regular one from the set of four minis.

 

i don't know where the hourglass dim light and these lip tars have been all my life. they stain without drying (unless you are really sensitive to mint oils) and feel bare.... they start with more of a lipstick sheen and feel but within an hour, your lips feel nearly bare and yet look like you're sporting a lipstick. i found that all of the shades are so suprisingly flattering on me (the four minis are memento-a definitively pink nude i can't say is warm or cool for some reason, anime-a neon pink also struggling to classify as warm or cool, nsfw- a perfectly neutral toned blood red that's not too bright, black dahlia- a 'blackened red' as they say that can appear a bit purple in some lighting and a gorgeous berry when sheered out)

My candy corn set finally arrived, so all in all it took 9 business days. That's not horrible I guess.

Whoa.  I ordered from the Julep store Nov. 1st (Fri) during their 50% sale.  It shipped Monday via DHL (I didn't pay extra for shipping) and it arrived today.  I can't believe how fast that was.  I did noticed it shipped out from Seattle though. And I'm in Seattle.

I have made two orders recently, one on October 30th - a secret store purchase - and one on November 1st - the 50% off sale - and somehow my orders both still say processing when I log into my maven account. I called today to ask what the hold-up was and they said it was a glitch in the system and gave me tracking numbers. However, the tracking number for the first order says November 4 the tracking information was received and the other from November 1st just says it has departed the partner shipping facility today (November 6th).

 

I don't think I'm going to be getting my orders any time soon at this rate.

    • My little Nutrisystem box is coming today. I HOPE I like it!!!! I got a big box before, years ago, and I did not like it. So did not stick to it. But I'm so tired of my overspending on food (Door Dash) delivery. When I get restaurant delivery, I don't even end up liking the food that much. If I get fast food, it's good, but when I order from a restaurant, the food is much less appealing and good than when you eat on site. The kind of food I get (partial to fried foods) makes me thirsty, tired. I've gotten to the point where I am so fed up, I'm just dying for the Nutrisystem box. That's the way I am when I go on a beauty No Buy and it ends up being successful - fed up with my behavior, feeling like I can't wait to change. It's nice Nutrisystem now has these little boxes you can get at Target and Walmart to try out and you don't have to spend over 200 up front and get a subscription.  I'm going to try different things with food each week until I figure out a plan to cut back. This will be harder than beauty No Buy for me. 
    • Me too! I really need clothes and shoes but won't buy them for myself. If I do have money I just want to buy cosmetics. I really don't use them either, but on my plan at least I get to enjoy the skin care and bath and body products!
