(Spoilers) Julep April 2014

Recommended Posts

Okay, I know it's way early, but I'm already thinking of what the April colors could be. Last year had brights; those were pretty fun. I was sad that I subscribed too late to get an April box (signed up in May, got the meh June box). What are you guys hoping for? Also, the April birthstone better be a holo glitter (diamond)! April is special because it's my boyfriend's birthday! <3

Updates!

 

I didn't really like the brights collection and actually I'm not sure I've ever worn either of the colors I got from it yet lol (Avery and Molly, I think?).  I may lay low next month and wait to see if they have a big polish sale once the plie wand comes out in May.  I feel like they will do something big so subscribers don't bail.  I think I will probably neeeed the diamond birthstone polish though!!

I have been a Maven since November 2012 but have skipped the last few months (since August, I have only gotten the December and February boxes). I would love to see different finishes--I love the stardust finishes from February and I picked up Farrah on sale and really like its satin/silk finish, so maybe those in brighter colors? I want to see new colors that haven't already been released and would love for them explore more with different finishes!

Some neon stardusts would be fun. Not for everyone, but I'd buy them ;)

Definitely! I've also been thinking about bright metallics, think finishes like OPI Swimsuit Nailed It. Or speckled like the Illamsquas and new Models Own. No matter what, I just want something bright with quirky finishes, not matter what exactly they may be.

YES. I honestly don't care what colors they come out with, so long as they have some unique finishes to them!

I don't really like textured polish AT ALL! I feel it gets grimy and dirty but that may just be me being in the medical field. I agree that holos would be fun. Any glitters are always welcome but I wish they were more creative with a glitter in a gel or cream base or unique shaped glitters like LYNNDERELLA. That would be amazing. Neons or brights would be fun, but if they could somehow re-invent the obvious that would make me take a box. At this point I have so much polish and I don't NEED anything but I am staying with Julep because I can still skip and I am hoping they get on board with their creativity dept and do some amazing things.

I agree with everything you said (except for the fact that I personally love textures, but can see how they wouldn't be for everyone)!

 

Even though I haven't taken very many boxes lately (I'm so happy I still get to skip when I want), I still really enjoy Julep and very happily buy polishes during the sales they often have.

I'm wearing Lindy alternating with Echo right now, and I'd love more polishes like these. These two shades are rare because they came in the February makeup mystery box and Christmas glitter collection respectively. They're like jelly finishes (light pink and raspberry red) with iridescent chips of sheer glitter. Kind of a pain to apply, but gorgeous on. I'd like to see more like these.

I love Lindy as well! I'm wearing it over Zoya's Zuza, and it's like a mermaid is on my fingertips. Love it! I thought Lindy would be pretty limiting when I first got it, in terms of what it'd look good with, but I've been super pleased! It looks good on everything! ESPECIALLY Julep's Angela. Lindy + Angela is stellar!

Ooh, I wanna try that. I'm wearing it with two coats by itself.

I loved the brights collection last year. It was was my first full collection upgrade. I'm hoping for something similar this year.

I dunno, Julep has been going down hill with the birthstones… I hope for all the April babies that they come better than it's been trending...gaehn.gif

I've been admiring the holographic and duochrome colors I see when I go grocery shopping at Target a lot lately, so I'm waiting for Julep to make similar polishes. I think that comes up a lot as something more people want to see from Julep, now that I think about it. I know it's far-fetched, but I wouldn't mind more gimmicky polishes like Casper from October. For about a year when I was in junior high, I only wore two polishes and both were the kind to change colors in the sun. I still love those sorts of polishes even now!

 

I'd like more textured polishes from Julep in all sorts of different styles, but I'd like them to improve the formula a little if they do more sea salt/stardust-like finishes (both went on the same for me, so I consider them the same). They chipped so easily when I wore then even though I don't do a lot that would cause chipping, but the liquid sand polishes from OPI have almost the exact same texture with three times the durability. Not a single chip in the week I wore the OPI polish! I'd rather not choose between durability and texture when other polishes have shown me I don't have to choose.

The Maven window opens on the 20th of each month and you have until midnight on the 24th to choose your box. After that, they start billing and the shipping day is the 27th, although sometimes they bill and ship earlier (but not before the 24th).   I think that since you signed up today you will get to choose an April box.

    • My name is Amy. I am in my mid 40's (I hate typing that, btw) and I used to be embarrased to talk about my skin problems! I worshipped the sun as a teenager and was blessed with cystic acne. In my 20's, I never took my makeup off, nor did I much in my 30's. Because of my bad habits, my skin suffered , and it clearly showed! I have tried soooo many different creams, lotions, serums, devices and masks! I was about to give up! However, in December,  I started using a regimen that has improved the appearance of my skin beyond my beliefs!  My acne scars have become less noticeable. The texture of the skin on my face and neck has completely changed (for the better!). I will NEVER have flawless skin, but I am truly happy where my skin is today! If you can relate to this story, or if you feel like your skin is doomed, you are wrong. I am proof of that! :) I would love to talk to you about any problems or concerns that you migh have!  Us women have to fight to age together gracefully!! Have a great evening! AmyP
