I am impressed with the polishes this month. I went with Boho Glam. I absolutely love both colors in the box; they were my 2 top pics when I saw the accidental spoiler a few days ago I'm thrilled that they were paired together. I don't really care for lipgloss but since I knew I was getting a gloss Charming was my top pic which happens to be in this box. I couldn't be happier. Oh and I added on Nic and Winter. Do I need Cynthia too? I can't decide. It looks gorgeous but I never wear glitter ever, but since it's a neutral micro glitter I might be able to pull it off. If there was one more item I wanted I would probably upgrade. Anyway this is probably my fave month yet :-)

Got the Timeless upgrade.  In swatching my polishes recently, I realized I don't have many fall/winter colors ... which makes sense since I've only really started collecting since last spring!  Also got the Autumn add-on.  Didn't go for the ultimate upgrade as I'm not generally a lip gloss fan.  I did want to try the lip plumper, so the upgrade definitely made sense, but no point in paying the extra $20 for the other glosses.  I'm sure one of my nieces will take the gloss off my hands if I don't like it.

 

Puts a lot of pressure on December.  That will be my 3 months in a row, as I skipped September, so I really hope there's a box I want to get the free polish.  Now if they will just keep to last month's schedule and ship the upgrade from NJ, I may actually get my order in good time!

I decided that when I asked earlier if I needed Cynthia it was a rhetorical question; of course I need Cynthia. I just went back and added it on so now I'm getting the Boho Glam box with add ons of Nic, Winter, and Cynthia. Happy happy.

It says in the fine print that you will have to start over to get another free polish.  So once they send you a voucher you will have to wait 3 more consecutives months to get another.

I was going to skip but I am close to a free box so I don't know.  I think I am kind of over the sub boxes between Bondi and Julep.  I think I will just continue to order my different promotions from Zoya.  I have never had a bad experience with them and I love their polishes.

I selected the upgrade with Charming and Autumn as an add on.  Is it me, or is the lip gloss Daring missing from all the selections?  I see it in the ultimate upgrade picture but not in the list of items, nor is it available anywhere else.

Not a very exciting month to me. I have way too many reds. Was hoping since my birthday is in two weeks that I would do the upgrade and call it a treat but oh well... in my mind that means I'll just have to buy the mystery box this month. LOL I am doing the It Girl box with Aisha, Autumn, and Cynthia as add-ons. Don't need any more lip products since I have lip factory and they send plenty!

It's the ultimate upgrade exclusive.

 

The lip glosses are 14$... another 11$ and the ultimate box would come with all lipglosses including Daring. [EDIT: Nevermind, read your post wrong... thought you meant you added on Charming, not that the box was the one with charming included haha my bad.]

 

Sorry I'll stop enabling =oP lol

I am SO FAR BEHIND that I  forgot it was Selection Window time! But on the good side, I did get an email this month! Loving a lot of the colors and the lip products. Right now, I'm thinking of taking a new twist for me ... Classic with a Twist ... I don't have a true red like that and I love the desert sand microglitter! Definitely adding on Autumn (wished I had Autumn all this month already!) and maybe Aisha (the wildberry).  The It Girl colors just didn't cut it for me this month ... the only one that interested me a LITTLE was the pale grey; the cocoa reminded me of Candace and the navy satin - my thought was some of my navies with a matte top coat would look just like it. And with Classic, I at least get to try the new lip glosses. Hoping to get caught up on reading the threads today! My one main problem was that I thought I had to "Save" my selection and I couldn't find where that was this morning. Am I dreaming it or remembering it?

I went with It Girl with Autumn and Cynthia as add-on. I would have upgraded, but I'm not a fan of lip gloss and don't need a lip primer. I wouldn't even know who to gift it to, since almost all of my girl friends are Mavens as well!

Cynthia looks sooo pretty! If I didn't already have way too many reds I would have gone for it! I wish I had Autumn on right now too, I wish it had been released in October...I definitely would be wearing it all the time. 

 

And you're right about the saving: the Save button is usually at the bottom right corner of the page. But their website is having some glitchy problems for me right now, so maybe that's why you couldn't find it? I can't tell if it's the Julep site having issues or if it's my computer.

I didn't get an email this morning for the Julep Maven box like I have every other month & I didn't receive the weekly survey email that I specifically signed up to get.

I'm going to email them & tell them.

Not sure if I should get Boho or Classic. Usually I don't like Classic with a Twist because I'm not big on cremes, but it has Cynthia and Sheila; I love micro glitters and red! But I like the Charming gloss; I have too many pinks. Wish I had enough money for an upgrade... I never do.

This is an easy skip for me. I'm wondering if I'm feeling kind of over julep because they are being boring (another red, another dark blue, another grey, another orange, etc.) or if it's because I hit a critical mass of polishes where it's harder for things to appeal to me. I know I have a little overload going on but I still was able to find about 10 zoyas I'm interested in yesterday...

 

Either way, if there was a higher value/more compelling beauty product this month they probably would have had my $20 but not with a lip gloss. I know they put a high value on all their beauty products, but the foot stick, the liner, and now the gloss to me reads as "we're cutting costs."

I think I'm skipping.  There are only 1 or 2 colors I like and I'm not a big fan of lip gloss.  The Lip Primer is intriguing but I can pick that up anywhere.  I'm going to wait for the mystery box - I'm a sucker for those!!

I think Zoya has some of the best colors! I can always find a bunch that I love, regardless of how much polish I already own.

 

And I agree with you about the value. Julep puts a ridiculous price tag on their items! It's like when stores mark up the prices so they can put everything on sale for 15% off, and it's actually just the regular price.

I'm just not feeling this month's selections. :doze:  I'm not completely set on any of the profiles, and I typically fall head over heels for at least one of them. However, some of the colors intrigue me so I'm going with It Girl along with Autumn, Aisha and Brielle add-ons. I really don't want any of the lip products :smileno: Of course the one time they offer an entire complete upgrade with everything is when I don't want to upgrade LOL Oh well!

I usually change my selection several times before the 24th. But I think right now I'm going with Classic with a Twist and adding on Autumn, Lola and Chloe. This will three in a row for me, I skipped August...so I'm pretty excited about the free polish.

I had a hard deciding.  I liked a lot of the colors this month, but didn't always love the pairings.  OR, I have colors in the similar vein.  AND I have WAY too many lipglosses.  I ultimately went with It Girl because I love browns and the grey interests me.  I'm not so into Lola because I have a lot of dark blues and I'm not sold on the Satin finish.  What can I say?  I like glossy nails.  I also added Cynthia (I really like their microglitters) and Aisha.  I may drop Aisha...especially since I could probably pick it up with my free coupon for taking three months in a row.

    • Steaming at home: A good steamer does not have to be available at the spa. You can bring home the best facial steamer and have a great steaming session at the comfort of your home. All you have to do is to follow the right set of rules to get high-end results. Bring home the best facial steamer from the store. Read the user manual carefully. Before you turn it on, give your face a good wash and do not apply anything. Keep your hair away from the face by neatly wrapping it. Use normal tap water inside the steamer, turn it on, and wait for vapours to arise. Keep the steamer almost 6-8 inches away from your face. Align your face to get the steam vapours. Take the steam vapours for a minute and move your face away from it for half a minute. Continuously taking the steam over the face may leave your skin burnt. Start off your cleansing session and pull out all the black and whiteheads. Dab a clean towel to remove the water droplets on your face and then apply a good moisturizer. Choose a facial steamer with the quickest start-to-steam option. This makes it the best facial steamer. Have a steam session, not more than once in a week as over steaming your facial steam can make it dry or burn it. Moisturize skin immediately after a good steam session to trap moisture and make the skin hydrated.
    • Hi I really need som help to find a good foundation. Im 35 years old and when I put on foundation it looks terrible. On the left side I have no makeup but in the right side I have Max factor radiant lift foundation. I still have acne and thats why I want to use foundation..
    • I'm going to have one day a week off of work for a while! I have not had any vacation since I began my job in 2015. Is No Buy worth it if it lets you work less? Maybe! I think so!  My hair has been a disaster, an absolute mess. It just needs better care. It is long, and I don't want to cut it until I use up all my backlog of hair products. It tangles so badly. I can't comb through the tangles, and they just build up into matted sections. It is just awful. Hair products don't help. My hair got really badly tangled and matted this week. My scalp was also irritated from using too much harsh shampoo. I decided to wait an extra day before washing it again, to let the natural oils soothe my dry and itchy scalp. Ironically, the natural oils also allowed me to detangle my hair, even where conditioners won't do it. It still took an hour and 40 minutes to get the tangles out, I kid you not, but at least I was able to do it. It's ironic that the solution to my problem wasn't buying a product, but just leaving my hair alone and letting my body heal itself.  Also I just had a little haul, but don't worry - it's within my No Buy rules. Time to replace my deodorant. I got an Avon Rare Pearls roll on. Three years ago, I got a stack of Rare Pearls sample cards from the Avon lady, and I thought if I got the deo to match, it would finally motivate me to use them up. While I was looking through the Avon site, I saw that Avon has some really pretty new dental care products. I got myself a really pretty pink toothbrush that has special bristles and Himalayan pink salt! I'm excited, because my teeth are bad and need more care, and this will be nice for me. It's been a while since I got a new toothbrush. The Avon lady had a code to get belif samples too - is belif part of Avon now? No - I jut checked - Avon was bought by the company that makes belif, apparently, and also makes History of Whoo! History of Whoo is one of my dream brands, and I've always wanted to try it. (It's an expensive, beautifully packaged Korean line of products that look like they are made for a Korean princess or empress.) Well that was a good guilt free haul! Very interesting and productive No Buy night.  
    • Moisturiser is one skincare staple that people with dry skin absolutely can’t do without. Dry patches, flakiness, peeling skin, are just some of the many issues that dry skin beauties have to deal with. And if that isn’t enough, finding the best moisturizer for dry skin that leaves your skin happy and hydrated is a task in itself.    Picking the right skincare products for your skin type is not an easy task - there is a lot of research involved in finding a product that would suit you the best. And that’s probably what brought you here, right?
    • Other than making you feel weirdly satisfied while peeling off the mask properly, charcoal peel off masks offers a wide range of skin benefits. Especially black peel off masks, which are all the rage right now among teenagers and adults.
