(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.

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.

    • As aging, more and more spots will appear on the skin, especially on our face. It’s our nature to pursue beauty that all of us want to make our skin looks clean and spotless, so most of us use a thick foundation to cover the spots.   But if we know where the stains come from, maybe we will not be so anxious. Usually there are two key reasons that cause the spots because the pigmentation of the skin is closely related to the melanocytes in the basal layer of the skin: 1. One is that the melanocytes in the base of the epidermis increase, which will form a nest of melanocytes, such as pigmented nevus; 2. The another is that melanocytes synthesized by melanocytes are increased, such as sun spots, age spots, and chloasma.  What results in melanocytes increasing? Besides it’s genetic, the most important reason is from solarize.   The ingredients that can cause damage to the skin in the sun are well-known ultraviolet rays. Among them, ultraviolet(UVB) can act on the epidermis, which promotes the synthesis of melanin particles in melanocytes, the increase of  melanocytes, and various pigmentation problems.   Therefore, more importantly, the most importantly for us to get rid of the spots on our skin is to do the best sun protection that you can.   What’s more, CARE II believes that there’s a little difference for different skin type, so we’d better to know the skin type first.   There are four basic types of skin: dry, oily, normal and combination skin. Skin type is determined by genetics, though it can be change according to the various internal and external factors.   1. Dry Skin Dry skin feels tight and rough and look dull. The only advantage of dry skin is that it’s not easy to be oily. But mostly you feel the skin is tight and it’s prone to peeling, fine lines, pigmentation, and skin aging, because dry skin lacks the lipids that it needs to retain moisture and build a protective shield against external influences.   2. Oily Skin Oily skin is completely opposite with the dry skin and it has a glossy shine and visible pores. Oily skin is prone to greasy feeling, and it’s prone to problems such as enlarged pores and hemorrhoids because of the heightened sebum production.   3. Neutral Skin or Normal Skin Neutral skin is well balanced, neither too oily nor too dry, which is the best skin condition. Maybe the T-zone is a bit oily, but overall sebum and moisture is balanced and not like oily skin or dry skin.   4. Combination Skin As the name suggests, combination sky consists of a mix of skin types. Skin types vary between the T-zone and the cheeks on combination skin, for example, the T-zone is often oily because of the strong oil secretion, which will result in rough skin, thick pores, acnes, but the cheek skin is relatively dry and delicate compared with the T-zone, and there will be dryness, desquamation and even red blood, stains and wrinkles issues if the skin hasn’t be taken care well.   Now you know what kind of skin type you are, right? Here CARE II wants to clarify the advantages and the disadvantages of the four skin types.   Skin Type Advantages Disadvantages Dry Skin Not oil Fine lines, pigmentation, and skin aging Oily Skin Moisturize Enlarged pores, acnes Normal Skin Well balanced Easy to be influenced by seasons Combination Skin The cheek skin is delicate Need to take care separately, the T-zone and the cheeks. If not take care carefully, many skin problems will be caused.   You can take care of your skin by the skin type you are.   Besides the reasons that CARE II mentioned above, there are also other reasons, like make-up dirt, stay up late, lack of sleep.   Some tips for you to get spotless skin: 1) Sun Protection-Shade, sunglasses, clothing and hats provide the best protection     -Try best to avoid the sunshine in the midday     -Check the UV index by your phone, if it’s 3 or above, please do sun protection     -Use sunscreen, at least SPF 30+     -Avoid sunlamps and tanning parlours 2) Cleanse Your Skin Cleanly-Remove the makeup thoroughly     -Cleanse your skin cleanly by CARE II RENEWAL facial cleansing brush. 3)  Sleep Early and Sleep Well     - It’s not only for your skin health, but also for your body health, extremely important! 4)  Massage your skin    - You can use CARE II RENEWAL facial cleansing massager to massage your skin.   Alright, you’ve already known what skin type you are and known how to take care of your pigmentation skin. That’s cool!
