(Spoilers) Julep March 2014

Recommended Posts

Ok...I chose Boho Glam (my typical profile) with Tania, Rae (very dupeable, but I may gift it to someone, it's pretty), and Monaco. I really wanted to get Harriet, so that's why I chose Boho Glam, but I'm not thrilled with Elisa at all. I feel like I already have a few Juleps that are that color and probably several from other brands too.

Thank you! I wish they had better swatches for the lipgloss. I can't tell if the Enchanted watermelon gloss is too orange.

It such a boring collection. I mean, half of them look like colors that Julep already has. I don't know what they were thinking this month.
Yeah, easy skip for me.

Skipping as well. I only like the glitter add-on .. don't need lip products or the core classic stuff and I'm not paying $25 just for that add-on.

 

I'm kind of glad this month's collection is so bad. I got the PS Resort Box, so this month I'm way over-budget already anyways. Very thankful to Julep for making my decision so easy and without regrets. :)

I think Julep's color decisions are being held back by their preconceived categories. Having "Classic with a Twist", "Bombshell", and so on makes it so they have to come up with a collection that can be squeezed into each of these profiles. Instead, they could just be creating any colors they wanted.
And they don't even do interesting stuff for It Girl. I think an even bigger issue is their scope: Nine new colors for the collection plus a special add-on only color plus the birthstone collection this year *plus* whatever other random shades they decide to toss into the mix EVERY SINGLE MONTH? They're stretching things *way* too thin.

I wasn't stoked about many of the colors either this month, I own similar colors to nearly all of these... but my lips are majorly dried out so I went with modern beauty. I almost bought the Fresh lip polish a few days ago, and this is less, so unless the product is a total fail this is a better deal.

 

I also added on Monaco because its pretty and I don't think I have anything like it, though I need to check when I get home! :P

Yes, Elisa looks just like Simone which is why I wanted it.  I'm almost out of Simone which is probably my most used Julep.  I agree not very different or special, but at least they are colors I will like. :icon_neut

 

I guess Rae is already sold out, so if you selected it and you're waffleing don't take it out until you're sure.

I'm still waffling on cancelling. (I was one of those who signed up and then had the rules changed retroactively.)  If I cancel, I'd get SquareHue.  The Pros to SquareHue, in my mind, are that it's $5 cheaper, there is a charity donation each month, and you always get three polishes.  (Julep: I did not signed up for a nail polish box to get lip gloss!!)  Pros to Julep are a choice of colors each month, frequent coupon codes, free shipping.  Guess I'll wait it out another month or two.  I think May, with the new caps, will be make-or-break for me and Julep.

I'm tentatively going It Girl adding on Rae and Harriet. I'll prolly waffle for a bit then change my mind and skip.

 

Well, it isn't really $5 less, because they charge $5 for shipping.  But I do like Square Hue.  Especially if you only want nail polish.

I always forget that they charge shipping on the newer signups since I subbed when they first started and it was $14.99 which included shipping.

I wish they would first come up with their theme for the month and then say, what would a [bombshell] girl wear for a Riviera theme?  THEN come up with each of the colors.  To me, their Maven profiles feel like an afterthought.  Especially this month, nothing seems to fit.

 

I also feel like the products are really random each month.  This months products feel like winter products.  Yes, it's still technically winter but I'm ready to start changing out my products for spring ones.  And I don't know where they are getting "our much-loved lipgloss," I don't remember there being a lot of love for them and I pretty much never heard about them again after the month they were offered.

Since I'm a newer maven & I don't have the option to skip, I'm going to have to try to cancel. I really don't want to spend $20 on colors I don't like at all. I hope it's not too hard to cancel.

You have greater resolve than I >.> I'm a newer maven without a skip option...but I also referred a person so I'm hoarding Jules ;-;

I agree! I think the categories could still be mostly adhered to, but they are trying to do too much. And it bugs me that Modern Beauty has no nail polish at all, when polish is why 99% of us joined Julep in the first place. So you either have to pay extra for a polish add-on with that box or pick a different box and pay a fortune for the lip stuff if you want it. I just think that seems odd/unfair. I don't mind the lipgloss thing b/c I personally like lipgloss and I also like getting something "extra" in my box besides just polish... But I'm an all around nail polish, makeup, skin care, etc. fanatic so that's just me. I think the birthstone collection is a really sweet idea, but maybe each month our box should include that current month's birthstone polish rather than it coming out later for an additional charge. I feel like I spent a small fortune this month between my box, the add-ons, the secret store, the birthstone polish, the mystery boxes, and then the Oscar themed polish freebie w/ $25 purchase. For goodness sakes!

It's actually very easy. I signed up for a second account last month to get the free welcome box for my mom, and I also got a 2nd referral out of it so Feb box was free on my first account and then I paid for a different box on the second account. Anyways, this month I just do not like it enough to have 2 subs and pay for 2 boxes so I called about an hour ago to cancel my second sub. It was hard getting through to someone b/c they must be pretty busy at the call center, but once I did get through the girl was really nice and it was incredibly easy to cancel. She didn't question me at all or make me feel guilty about it! However she was able to see both of my accounts with my 2 emails even though I only gave her the one email...... I'm not sure how that is?

If you have the same phone # on both accounts and called from that #, then they might have pulled it up by phone #. Other than that I don't know.

That's certainly possible, I have the same address and phone number on both accounts. She asked for my email to pull it up... But maybe they are automatically connected when they have duplicate info. Even weirder, she originally asked me if I wanted to cancel the account for Donna Hamby, and I was like huh?? I don't know any Donnas, but Hamby is my maiden name!

I think ill do itgirl the colors are pretty and 90% of my polish collection is glitters so I usually don't have dupes for non glitter polishes.

I just canceled a few days ago.  It was super quick and painless!

I was super let down last month that the swatches online were nothing like the colors in real life, and nothing stands out to me this month. Very easy month to skip this time.

    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!     
    • The best concert I have ever attended was by Bohemia: the Punjabi Rapper. He was in Delhi (Lajpat Nagar) He is my favourite Artist and Rapper. When I saw him for the first time, my soul felt bliss ❤️ All the crowd of fans were going insane about him I can't forget that moment and want to attend more and more of his concerts
