I'm hoping maybe midnight PST. :)

No time stamps for those... *crosses fingers* for midnight!

It's 7:05am EST and the Maven Window is still closed :/ Comeee onnnnn!
Understandable, b/c it's 4am over here (PST) & the Julep girls in Seattle are all probably still asleep haha.

I'm up so early that the window is still closed!  :(  I'm on the West Coast, and I got up extra early this morning for no particular reason (okay, really, I had to go to the bathroom, and it didn't make sense to go back to bed for less than half an hour), so I was all ready for work before I usually even get up.  Which is ten minutes ago.  I should just go to work now.  That's where the free coffee lives.  (I still usually have to get up so early that I think I'm usually headed for or on the bus when the window opens,  I just don't usually have time to dig into it until then.)

Aaand... Le sigh. Skipping as soon as I get to work. I don't even see *one* color I really want.

Oh wow. This is the least interested I've been in the colors in months. Usually I'm at least tempted to take a box. Lol

Boring. And... more lip gloss?

I'll take a box and use Jules, but not very exciting.

 

I do like Rae, though. Excited for Orchid as colour of the year. (Wish it was a box option, but not surprising Julep made it an add-on only.)

Wow there was not a single thing I wanted this month...... I do admit it's a very springy collection, but I'll leave it, thanks.

 

Even the core classics box is eh. I was hoping they'd change it up like they did last month since I'm pretty sure the oxygen treatment hurts my nails (they started peeling when they're usually very strong and that's the only thing I can think of) and I hate the freedom top coat.

 

Good thing, since I'm all polished out at the moment. But maybe I can justify buying something on my ISO list this month now because of it.

I agree ladies.... "Blah" is how I feel about the selections this month! I am a newer Maven so I don't have the skip option and I am 150 jules shy of having enough to cover my box this month soooo either I have to take a box or cancel my membership :( I'm going to take the Core Classics box b/c I don't have a Julep top coat yet, and I think I could use that tool... And I can always use a light pink polish that strengthens my nails. Plus that will give me the jules needed to get a free box next month.

Colors aren't that great and I feel like the collection looked at as a whole doesn't make it anymore appealing. I guess it doesn't help much that I don't trust their swatches even in the slightest.

WOW I am also SO disappointed.  It's been several months now since I took a box... the first few times it was for low-buy/financial reasons, but the only thing I am truly interested in this month is the scrub, and I am not thinking I want to pay $20 for it.

I was not crazy about any of the boxes this month.  None of them had a color combination that worked for me.  I did go with the Modern Beauty box, as I was interested in trying those.  And I got 3 add-ons: Lizanne and Tania -- because I do love greens like these, as well as Seraphine, which I think might work well under glitters with a clear base.  I may change my mind about these between now and the end of the selection window, though.

I really love the lip scrub, the two featured add on colors (one of which I'm 99% sure is a dupe for Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid's Dream, except with chunkier glitter), and Elisa, the lavender creme.

 

I'm easy though. I'll prolly get the ultimate upgrade and just get everything.

 

If you don't like any of the colors but just want the lip scrub, just get the modern beauty box. It's the cheapest you'll get the scrub duo. Hell, I may just do that when I come to my senses.

 

Oh I also added the lip scrub combo as an add on even though I may not get it because judging by Julep recently, it's likely to sell out as an add-on, and I want to hang on to it just in case.

Boring colors in the boxes and I can't even skip! Since I HAVE to take a box, I'll go with Modern Beauty and add on Tania. I like Julep's lip products and my strawberry mint lip balm from them isn't going to stay alive forever.

 

Also, am I the only one that finds it funny they're still offering sheets of swatch stickers as an add-on when those stickers are going to be phased out in May?

I also really, really hate Julep's lip glosses. The formula is SO THIN. When you have dark pigmented lips like mine, that's an issue. Only the most pigmented and thick lipglosses work on me. The rest are just varying shades of sheer.

I know it's the cheapest you'll get the lip duo but I am honestly only interested in the scrub (pretty sure I will use the other thing once then forget about it and go back to chapstick which seems to serve the same purpose), and I know of several scrubs that I KNOW are good that cost less than $20- sometimes well less. I will need to keep thinking about it.

TOTAL snooze fest.  The only ones I'm remotely interested in are the 2 green ones - Lizanne & Tania.  But of course one's an add-on and one's an It Girl.

I'm having definite deja-vu looking at the colours...I remember a dark blue + light yellow pairing in a previous month.  Nothing exciting, no cool finishes (except for Tania).  Blah.

Darn, was hoping for better colors and ugh more lipgloss. I love Tania and Rae though!! I'll take my box and definitely use my code on one of those. I guess I'm leaning towards boho glam but Idk yet.

I love the color Rae also.  Why does it have to be an add-on?

 

 

I thought about going w/It Girl just to get a box and adding on Rae, but Margaret looks like a close dupe for Essie's Bikini so Teeny, which I already have.

    • This Advent Calendar sounds amazing!! Thanks so much for sharing!!
    • I am going on a No Buy (replacements only) in January and February. My goal is to pay off a credit card of $140 (accounting for interest, I will need to pay off around $150), and to use up my deluxe sample sized beauty items. The same resolution I have every year, but this time it's different. I'll be paying off the last in a very long series of mini debts I had in my debt snowball, after two years of paying things off. After that I'll be going into a different phase, working on larger debts. Also, I am starting with far, far fewer sample beauty products than I used to, having used so many up in the last two years.  It's exciting, getting to the end of this phase. I'm going to be going through my samples in the next two weeks and getting ready! It's a good way to start the year, with smaller goals and easier wins. 
    • Do you like card games? for example poker?
    • Advent calendar: Day 8 - Bright red nail polish - Polish was so easy to apply, and lasted well. I got several compliments on it.  Day 9 - At the Heart of Pine Trees Holiday Shower Gel - a fresh orange scent with a soft wood note.  Day 10 - Apricot body scrub.  Day 11 - Hydrating micellar water.  Day 12 - Plein Soleil Perfume - I love the perfume! It is tuberose with a hint of cardamom, to evoke travels to the East.  Day 13 - At the Heart of Pine Trees matching body lotion.  Day 14 - Mango Coriander Shower Gel.  I've been feeling the pressure of the holidays this month! I've been frustrated, because I have not been able to make progress on paying my credit card off by the end of the year. It's looking like it's not going to happen. I wanted to pay it off by the end of the year just because of perfectionism. Since it was the last in the series of smaller balance debts in my debt snowball, I thought it would be nice to have it done by New Year's Eve and start January with a larger goal. After having a relaxed day (I went to the park for a walk and saw baby deer!), I finally thought of something that made it okay to defer that goal a bit. I realized I won't be finished with my mini beauty products by the New Year either. I have far fewer than in past years, but I'll still have some to get through. I always had the concept of using my mini sample products and paying my smaller debts (the easier goals) and after that was through, I would use up full sized products while paying off larger debts. After thinking of that, I felt it would be okay to make a new plan and give myself January and February to pay my last small bill ($140) while using up the mini products. Then in March I can begin work on larger debts and larger products! I did achieve all of my 2019 New Year's Resolutions, and paid off five credit cards this year, and I'm very happy with that. I'm not going to go on a shopping spree and buy myself a lot of things with credit cards, but I do need to make it through Christmas!
