(Spoilers) Julep June 2014

Recommended Posts

I really wish they offered Katerina as a box selection, it's all I really want and I can't see buying three polishes just to get one add-on :(

 

I like Sera and the other light purple (Phia) but they look like dupes of other julep polishes I already have

 

I also really liked Ariana

and Colette but only with the pretty top coat over it.

 

I can't figure out what to get as a third item.

I think if I weren't on polish overload, I would love this collection, but alas, I've got too many polishes and not enough nails or time.. :( Skipping...

I had a box all picked out and 3 add-ons....now I've skipped.  I wish Popsugar would release a spoiler for the summer LE box so I can make a decision on that first!

Katerina looks a lot like Vanessa, Camille, and Casper. Not sure if you want to/can skip but if you're looking for that color I think those would all be good alternatives.

Julep posted on facebook that if you get all three add ons they would send you something extra.

$5 says it's another America or Yumi ...

I decided to switch over to a customization plan so I did the $60 for 3 months option.  I wanted Phia but it is sold out as an add on, sold out as a switch out option, and the It Girl box with Phia in it is sold out too so even with customization I still can't get it (unless I want to buy the entire It Girl box as an add on, which is available).  

Currently I have picked a customized box with Natalia, Bergen, and Sera.  I also added on Katerina.  If It Girl boxes become available again I'll switch out for that box so I can get Phia and then switch out the other polishes for what I want and have an extra add on :)

I am thinking of getting the Core Classics Box but when I read the reviews everyone says the sprayer does not work on the body oil. Does anyone have an opinion to share?

It just clogs frequently, just like Beauty Protector from Birchbox.  Take the nozzle off, run it under some hot water, pop it back on, and you're good to go.

Thanks, this seems like a good opportunity to change it up from my Caudalie Divine Oil for a little while. I have also been wanting a facial cleansing oil.

wait, the upgrades are out of stock??

Yeah I just took a peek and both are the polish lovers and ultimate upgrades. I guess Julep won over all those serial skippers.

The It Girl box came back in stock so I was able to get everything I wanted: Phia, Sera, Bergen, Natalia, and Katerina :)  Also noticed I had 2,400 jules so I'll be using $2,000 of those for a free box and just paying for 2 add-ons.  Yay!

Skipping this month.   Saved my skip this morning before 7am, and still don't have a confirmation email!  I screen capped it but this is ridiculous. 

 

I like the variety and change up of the finishes, but I'm not a fan of most of the colors, too much purple, and I have similar colors/finishes already of the ones I do like.  

 

I really liked Bergen though, I "might" pick that up later next month if a good discount code comes along that doesn't require a ton of money to use it.  I almost got the classic with a twist box, but I don't know if I 20$ like it enough.  I can't tell for sure how blue or grey Bergen really is, so I'll wait for true swatches.  

 

I like the textured polish, but I had a similar color from Zoya pixi dusts, and hardly ever wore it.  Probably shouldn't waste money on a color I'll hardly wear.  :-\  

 

I'm not happy about the increase in price of add on options either.

Whoa, boxes are going out of stock?  And upgrades? Crazy, I've never seen that happen. I guess I've only been around since November, but still, dang.

 

Even though I like several of the colors, I'm skipping this month. I'd test out any of this month's products in, say, a mystery box, but I don't want any of them enough to intentionally buy them. And I don't want to gamble with the colors. Several look similar to ones I already have and/or look super streaky. If they end up being gorgeous, I'll get them on sale later. Better to save my 2000 Jules for a box that I actually want.

I have a very close drugstore dupe for Katerina.  Sally Hansen Diamond Strength in #150 Glass Slipper in case that helps anyone out.   I wasn't too happy about the increased cost for the  add ons, but at least we still have the option to have add ons (provided you get in there asap before they sell out).  Most excited for Harlow this month.

I switched to My Maven and took the 3-month prepaid option. As long as my skips remain intact as Julep has promised, I'm good.

 

I ended up taking It Girl for Jennine and Phia, but swapped out Savoy (I have enough gold polish that I never wear) for that copper one. Yay for a box of 3 polishes I like!

 

Also got the 2-pack of Konjac sponges. I love those and have been waiting for them to go on sale.

 

This might have been a month to upgrade, but now I have one devil on my shoulder shouting "nail polish!" while the angel on the other shoulder whispers "house!"

I did the Maven Upgrade but decided to skip it. Also, the Maven Upgrade is also a way worse deal. It's $40 for the hand creams set and the face elixer. With no nail polishes. You can trade out either set for ONE POLISH. which is ridiculous. Why would I pay $40 for 2 polishes when I can pay $20 and get a whole set? It just makes no sense to me at all.

 

I'm probably going to cancel Julep, I love them but I have too much polish right now and I'd rather spend the money elsewhere. It occurred to me that instead of buying these boxes every month I could just do a recurring donation of $10 for my local library or land conservation agency and it would be a better use of my money than buying a bunch of stuff I don't really need.

I skipped too & my skip confirmation went to my junk email folder for some reason. None of my other Julep emails have gone to my junk mail. Maybe the same thing happened to you?

I skipped yesterday morning and didn't get my confirmation until about 5pm yesterday- and I skipped about 0900 yesterday morning....

For everyone skipping right now. And, still wanting some polish this month. Transdesign has a terrific deal on Color Club. $3.25 a piece instead of $8. That's what I bought.

 

Just a head's up.

    • Steaming at home: A good steamer does not have to be available at the spa. You can bring home the best facial steamer and have a great steaming session at the comfort of your home. All you have to do is to follow the right set of rules to get high-end results. Bring home the best facial steamer from the store. Read the user manual carefully. Before you turn it on, give your face a good wash and do not apply anything. Keep your hair away from the face by neatly wrapping it. Use normal tap water inside the steamer, turn it on, and wait for vapours to arise. Keep the steamer almost 6-8 inches away from your face. Align your face to get the steam vapours. Take the steam vapours for a minute and move your face away from it for half a minute. Continuously taking the steam over the face may leave your skin burnt. Start off your cleansing session and pull out all the black and whiteheads. Dab a clean towel to remove the water droplets on your face and then apply a good moisturizer. Choose a facial steamer with the quickest start-to-steam option. This makes it the best facial steamer. Have a steam session, not more than once in a week as over steaming your facial steam can make it dry or burn it. Moisturize skin immediately after a good steam session to trap moisture and make the skin hydrated.
    • Hi I really need som help to find a good foundation. Im 35 years old and when I put on foundation it looks terrible. On the left side I have no makeup but in the right side I have Max factor radiant lift foundation. I still have acne and thats why I want to use foundation..
    • I'm going to have one day a week off of work for a while! I have not had any vacation since I began my job in 2015. Is No Buy worth it if it lets you work less? Maybe! I think so!  My hair has been a disaster, an absolute mess. It just needs better care. It is long, and I don't want to cut it until I use up all my backlog of hair products. It tangles so badly. I can't comb through the tangles, and they just build up into matted sections. It is just awful. Hair products don't help. My hair got really badly tangled and matted this week. My scalp was also irritated from using too much harsh shampoo. I decided to wait an extra day before washing it again, to let the natural oils soothe my dry and itchy scalp. Ironically, the natural oils also allowed me to detangle my hair, even where conditioners won't do it. It still took an hour and 40 minutes to get the tangles out, I kid you not, but at least I was able to do it. It's ironic that the solution to my problem wasn't buying a product, but just leaving my hair alone and letting my body heal itself.  Also I just had a little haul, but don't worry - it's within my No Buy rules. Time to replace my deodorant. I got an Avon Rare Pearls roll on. Three years ago, I got a stack of Rare Pearls sample cards from the Avon lady, and I thought if I got the deo to match, it would finally motivate me to use them up. While I was looking through the Avon site, I saw that Avon has some really pretty new dental care products. I got myself a really pretty pink toothbrush that has special bristles and Himalayan pink salt! I'm excited, because my teeth are bad and need more care, and this will be nice for me. It's been a while since I got a new toothbrush. The Avon lady had a code to get belif samples too - is belif part of Avon now? No - I jut checked - Avon was bought by the company that makes belif, apparently, and also makes History of Whoo! History of Whoo is one of my dream brands, and I've always wanted to try it. (It's an expensive, beautifully packaged Korean line of products that look like they are made for a Korean princess or empress.) Well that was a good guilt free haul! Very interesting and productive No Buy night.  
    • Moisturiser is one skincare staple that people with dry skin absolutely can’t do without. Dry patches, flakiness, peeling skin, are just some of the many issues that dry skin beauties have to deal with. And if that isn’t enough, finding the best moisturizer for dry skin that leaves your skin happy and hydrated is a task in itself.    Picking the right skincare products for your skin type is not an easy task - there is a lot of research involved in finding a product that would suit you the best. And that’s probably what brought you here, right?
    • Other than making you feel weirdly satisfied while peeling off the mask properly, charcoal peel off masks offers a wide range of skin benefits. Especially black peel off masks, which are all the rage right now among teenagers and adults.
