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.

    • I love all the wedding hairstyle ideas. They all look so elegant and stunning! Can't help but to get excited for my own wedding soon! 😍
    • Being a bridesmaid is more difficult than being a bride. Along with taking care of the bride, you have to take care of everything and everyone else. A bridesmaid is always prepared for any kind of emergency. That my russian bride used a similarly hair style
    • Our skin is a very sensitive organ of the body. Every day it goes through environment changes, temperature fluctuations, pollution, and dirt. While tackling with all of them, it has a great responsibility to secrete oils and sweat to protect itself from the outside world and maintain the body temperature. Basically, at the end of the day it not only gets exhausted, but goes into a dire need of nutrients to replenish its energy. A chemical product may give your skin instant glow, but it becomes a crutch. It makes our skin dependent upon chemical based products so much that if the product is not used, the skin starts falling into the worst conditions like dryness, acne, excess oils etc. Hence, plant based skin care brands are emerging to bring you a better option that will replenish all the natural oils and nutrients of your skin and make it naturally healthy. The natural and plant-based skin care products do not have harmful toxins that your body might intake through the epidermis’ habit of absorbing whatever is applied on it. A product like – the rejuvenator dry oil emulsion is made only of natural ingredients like apple stem cell, natural oils and herbs. After a long day, they provide your skin hydration, phytonutrients, and boost cell protection and collagen. Intake of these products through the skin is completely safe because they share the same biological chemistry as our bodies and blend in.

    • I suppose it’s an indication of little I used to think about sleep that it never occurred to me my sleeping position was in anyway abnormal. I fall asleep on my right hand side then often sleep on my stomach, head to one side if I wake up during the night. Turns out only about 7% of the population do this.   But is there a ‘best side’ to sleep on? The jury seems to be out but there are pros and cons to each sleeping position   If you sleep on your back (which I rarely do) it’s apparently good for your spine and preventing acid reflux but you are more likely to snore. On the other hand it may “maintain perky breasts” according to this article on the CNN website. (Probably not if you’ve had a couple of kids, I’d suggest)   Sleeping on your side – right or left – apparently makes it easier to breathe and helps to avoid heartburn and acid reflux. It also tends to be the most comfortable position if you’re pregnant, especially with a body pillow. However curling up in a foetal position is not good for your neck or spine.   Some experts say you’re better to sleep on your right hand side if you have a cardiac condition as it puts less stress on the heart. On the other hand sleeping on your left may be better for your liver and kidneys.   Sleeping on your front can put strain on your neck though this can be alleviated if you only have one or no pillows. (According to the Better Sleep Council this position makes me brash, outgoing, and very uncomfortable with criticism!)   On the other hand a recent survey came up with the finding that sleeping on the left of the bed (which I invariably do) makes you more cheerful and positive – but not as financially well off as those who sleep on the right. According to the ... er... Daily Mail.   In the absence of any consensus it seems to me that there’s no reason to change your sleeping position if you sleep well or haven’t been advised to alter it by your doctor. On the other hand if you sleep badly – or snore loudly – it could be worth trying to make a change.    So what are you – a side, a back or a stomach sleeper and have you ever managed to change the way you sleep? Read more information about the best mattress for sleeping. Good luck!
