(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.

I have drunk the glittery Kool-Aid and signed up tonight for my first Julep box with a code get my first free! They're sending me a gorgeous deep blue and a shimmery silver. I don't even have it yet and already I'm trying o figure out how to do something really interesting using both of them! Around when do they bill, and when on they ship?

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 Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • 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!
