(Spoilers) Julep November 2013

Recommended Posts

I was not to excited with the color selections this month, but since I sold a bunch of my nail polish, I am in need of new colors. I decided to go with "CLASSIC W/A TWIST" and I added "AUTUMN" it looks like such a pretty color

I'm Classic with a Twist, but I have three reds from my Classic with a Twist subscription. So I switched it up to Boho Glam (love the purple) and added the sparkly Cynthia.

I'm sorry, but I'm extremely mad at Julep right now. They are just doing massive markups. For an upgrade it is $75 now, then if you want the featured add on it will be $80. I get you get all the lipglosses but they are just adding costs where ever they can and people are accepting it.

 

I for one love all the colors this month and must have them all and I also wanted to try the glosses but at that rate? No thank you.

 

I'm not sure what I'll end up getting. I had planned on the whole shebang but idk now. Prolly a skip month for me.

I don't think the addition upgrades are anything different than normal. There is just more of it to upgrade.

I didn't even think about that. I will probably drop Aisha now too, lol!

I totally agree. $75-$80 is too much for an upgrade plus add ons. And then they lure you in with the secret store AND the monthly mystery boxes!!! For someone with poor judgement (me!!) when it comes to shopping impulses this is some serious money to be dropping on nail polish month. I'm standing strong and not upgrading this month, but I MIGHT have to indulge on the secret store and if they mystery box seems good, maybe that too :)

I skipped... maybe I need a break from Julep after not liking the formula of Edith from my Hope Trio and also the portrayal of colors of my box last month...my Anisa looks like a dup of Demi.

Hmm, I haven't gotten an email yet either. I'll email them as well. Though I will be skipping. Just really only feeling one colour out of the lot, Chloe, and I feel as if I could find a dupe or buy the colour later if I really want it.

After staring at the swatches I have decided to do the $35 upgrade with Glowing as the gloss. Pale pink is more wearable for me and I can test out the formula. I like all the polishes but the orange. It looks yucky.

Just tried Anastasia's product for first time over my fav Bobbie brown mascara and it worked so well I will never go back to buying waterproof mascaras!

Have you seen Anastasia's waterproof topcoat for mascara? I have it and it works really well for me. If you got that then you could just waterproof your samples:) (Yes I'm a horrible, horrible enablerdevilish.gif )

Yeah, I was surprised to see the cost of the ultimate upgrade.  It's crazy to me to see the lip glosses retail for more than Lorac or Bare Minerals lip glosses do, especially since it doesn't seem like they upgraded the packaging much from the last ones.  I think the tubes are pretty boring.

 

So, what does everyone think the extra will be this month?

I was going to skip, but CWaT is looking soooo me. I love the classic red. Do I need more red? I have a ton. But I wear it a LOT, so maybe. Then the desert sand microglitter looks gorgeous. I only feel a little bit like a sucker, because last month, the color I ordered for was so different, that mistrust the swatches. Plus, I was trying to save money. The Autumn glitter looks really tempting, but I think I use chunky glitters a lot less than I drool over them.

My vote would go to hot cocoa packet.  Or one of those hot-chocolate-on-a-stick things like PopSugar sent out in January.  I just get a curl-up-with-a-mug-of-hot-chocolate vibe from this collection.  Since they're in Seattle, Dilettante chocolate spoons would be amazing.  Their Ephemere sauce is...  ooh, words cannot express.

I upgraded with the posh gloss and added Autumn. I had a hard time deciding because I liked one color in each profile and I wanted to try the lip primer. I don't like lip gloss though. They're either too sticky, too under pigmented, or too shimmery. I typically wear a stain with a little balm on top or a lipstick. I did kind of wanted to try one though cause who knows I might actually like it. The only way for me to get everything I wanted was to upgrade since they limit the number of add ons. I'm really excited about Autumn, Aisha (love!), and Cynthia. I'd love a mini fall scented candle extra.

i picked bombshell add on autumn and lola.  that orange cream looks gorgeous, i would have picked a different lipgloss color, but i know i can also wear the dark shade so i didnt upgrade.  i would have upgraded if autumn was included i love the julep glitters!

Hello ladies! I've been lurking for a bit and thought it might be time to say hi.

 

I'm having trouble with my November choices. I do rather like the CWaT box, but I don't really need another red creme (Sheila looks very similar to Jackie--funny, because my name is Jackie and my mom's name is Sheila) and I have very little interest in the lip gloss. And that aside, I overspent this month and would like to start November off...a bit more cheaply, lol.

 

I'm thinking if I'm patient and vigilant I might be able to scoop Cynthia and Autumn up at a decent price with a code or a sale later in the month.

So far I have decided on boho. I looked at my polishes and have nothing from boho glam, was surprised. I love Aisha. Added on Autumn, but that may change. Considering Cynthia and Lola. I like at least one polish from each collection, was hard to pick!

Welcome!  :)

 

You're right - Sheila does look a lot like Jackie.  

 

I also noticed that Nic looks very similar to Lucy.  http://www.julep.com/lucy.html

This just occurred to me. Has anyone gotten a text code from julep lately? I can't remember the last time I received one.

Nope.  Last text I received was on 9/13.

Oh well that's a bummer. And here we can discuss the state of Julep's deception. Their "swatch": http://www.julep.com/jackie.html

700

 

vs. a swatch by @OiiO, which I pulled from MUT:

700

 

 and another one: http://thepolishedfox.com/julep-maven-unboxing-april-2013/

700

 

Consistently a bit lighter and slightly more coral than Julep's swatches if you search for swatches :| 

 

I really like a couple of the colours, and I'd set mine on CWaT, but I'm not super interested in Sheila or lipgloss now. I was okay with Sheila before but eeeeh after being reminded about Julep's swatching situation 2/3rds of a box being unappealing to me is a bit too much.

 

I hope whatever promo they run with the boxes after will include Cynthia. :| And a couple of the ones I like. Maybe Cythnia + Lola for desert nights :D

 

Sooo I guess skipping again. Hopefully they'll do good in December since it's my birthday month.
