Julep September 2014 (SPOILERS)

Recommended Posts

I noticed there was no September thread up yet. What are you ladies looking foward to this month?

I feel so jaded by Julep that all I feel like I can hope for is some shimmer/sparkle/glitter.  I would love an autumn leaves collection where it's all various shades of green, brown, orange (even though I hate orange), etc., with a misty shimmery blue thrown in there to represent autumn rain (in this area, it rains a *lot* in the fall!) or a shimmery grayish white (SO MUCH FOG).  Or!  Oh!  A shimmery top coat as an add-on to represent trying to *see* through all the fog! 

 

(Also, note to Julep:  STOP WITH THE FRAKKING RAINBOW COLLECTIONS.  You don't need to go all Roy G. Biv EVERY SINGLE MONTH.  It seems like the only months I get are when you do *not* do that.  An It Girl box with three shades of blue or green?  I can dig it and would grab it in an instant.)

I would love something like the Three Wishes collection, but with autumn/warm tones. Come on duo-chrome gold/burgundy!!

I'm so over it too, and since I'm on a no buy this month, I won't be getting a September box. But, I want some awesome fall colors. I love your ideas @@meaganola I would totally love some awesome fall glitters to buy after the no buy is over. I actually wouldn't mind some cremes this month, as they did different finishes for August so I imagine we'll be seeing cremes again. A dark burgundy, dark green, dark red. I have Autumn that I can't wait to break out over something dark as soon as it starts getting cooler. Something fun like Autumn in various colors and some dark colors to put it over.

 

I'm just so hesitant to get a box, even if I wasn't on a no buy, because of all the packing issues they're having lately. Whether it's a fulfillment company, or their own employees, they need to change something. I saw someone had a chewed on pen in their box in the Julep Swap Facebook group...like someone packing it left their pen in the box. I mean come on.

I'm looking forward to timely shipping where most people receive what they actually ordered, and that Julep sells out instead of selling items they can't provide.

 

LOLJKJK....

 

 

 

 

::long sigh::

 

 

 

 

an alternate version of the three wishes collection would be absolutely perfect though. Burgundy, bronze, navy, moss, plus a featured add-on of a different color version of Max.

Juleep needs to hire you to do their collections. I would not be skipping at all.

I've pretty much given up on Julep getting creative with it at this point. They got me good with the June and August boxes thanks to the shimmers and glitters, but I'd like to see them do a collection where one polish for each profile is a creme or shimmer (two for It Girl) and the other polish is a really funky top coat that can spruce up the creme or shimmer. For instance, another top coat with shapes in it like Geo and Antonia from the mystery boxes they did last year or a variation of Max that looks like neon confetti. Tania is one of the more unique top coats from them and it's also one of my favorites because of that.

 

Probably a better idea for Halloween/October, but if it's possible to make glow-in-the-dark colors that aren't ectoplasmic green in the dark, I'd go for that too.

 

Other things I'm looking forward to next month include ACTUALLY GETTING MY BOX AT A DECENT TIME. I still don't have my August Maven box, but it's supposed to be delivered this week according to my tracking number. I selected a number of colors they ran out of and substituted in the boxes of others, so I don't expect to actually get the colors I selected. I picked what I wanted early on the 20th and never messed with my selection during the rest of the window, so I'm a little peeved it's taken so long. (Bad) luck of the draw, I guess.

I actually like cremes so I don't mind those too much, but I wish Julep would stop dupeing their own colors. I've been a maven for about a year and a half, and I skip most boxes, but whenever a new collection comes out I feel I have most of the colors already. I wish they would start making more full-coverage glitters in interesting colors. I think that's one of the things they do best, but they aren't really doing those anymore. I know last month had one, but it was gold, I want more fun colors, something like Carly or Lucky. Something like Autumn but full-coverage would be perfect for fall.

Yes! Or even something like Martina, whew boy that was some full coverage! I wouldn't even mind a rainbow collection of glitters like that because glitter!

Because I live in Washington State, Julep used to be the one box I received quickly.  This month I received my box at the end of last week.  It had been sent from somewhere on the east coast, had been opened and then taped closed with strapping tape, and the bar code had black marker over part of it.  I know that the package had been riffled, because the when the box had been resealed, one of the info cards had been mangled in the fold of the box.  Not a good feeling to think someone has been touching my stuff.  And, why?  They didn't take anything, unless there was candy.  Plus, they had my name backwards.  I have belonged to Julep for two and a half years and haven't moved.  What is up with that?

 

After reading about so many problems, last month I spent all my jules in case I ended up canceling.  But, I don't want to quit.  Please don't make me, Julep!

I just want my box to have all of it's contents.  I doubt I will have my clean up tool before the window opens, and maybe not even a response to my email.

 

Other than that I want fall glitters, shaped glitter and shimmery metals and neutrals (grays, mauves, etc. with SHIMMER).  I never tried their decals when they had them/one a few years back, but I wish they would have a fun set of decals instead of more lame products this month.  I could go for that.

I just noticed the Julep blog posted the results of one of their last surveys a couple days ago...apparently cremes won out over all other finishes. Shimmer came in second. I don't have high hopes for this month. Please pleasantly surprise me Julep!

I don't mind cremes but I can't imagine a color I don't already have or need. I like pearl finishes right now but only if done very well like Color Clubs last pearl finish collection. Super high quality and not a cheap finish to it. Really looked more like a pearl than anything else and in really unique colors that were totally wearable. September is a transition to Fall month so I expect to see some fall colors coming my way but wont be buying unless I am totally wow'd!

The box details are up on our order history. The products are something called a plush pout and the lip primer. Meh.

I've seen a few spoilers on the collection for september and it looks okay but nothing spectacular. I won't be skipping, but I am not salivating over every. single. polish. like I was last month.

I'm all about anything oxblood, so I definitely want Mary Lee. Not sure about the rest. I have so many glosses and lip crayons I haven't even gotten around to using yet, so adding more seems silly.

 

I wonder what the Core Classics box is like, if it's good I might take that box and add Mary Lee.

    • No Buy Program Guide   I found a great new No Buy channel on YouTube (well it found me; it was in my recommended videos), a new No Buy channel from a New York concert pianist, Natalia Lavrova. I find this fascinating, because I love the world of classical music. Here is someone in my dream life, who loves shopping, and beauty subscriptions, who has credit card debt, and is doing a No Buy! I'll be fascinated to watch this channel and hear how this artist's No Buy goes as she is preparing for concert tours abroad! Ms. Lavrova has a really good Shop My Stash video with great tips on winter makeup colors, like icy pink highlighter. I looked for her piano performances on YouTube and they are stunning. This is going to be a big inspiration for me!   
    • I made it through the night with no buying! I slept through the shopping craving like it was an illness. I woke up after the 12 hours of sleep and as I was waking up I thought of a happy time in the 90's. I was young; all my family members were alive. I was at a Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, (I love James Bond and don't know what I am going to do when his new film is released, since I'm not allowed money for entertainment on my No Buy). On the floor near my feet was a big bag of Estee Lauder products that I had just gotten with my birthday and Christmas money. I had a full size moisturizer and a huge PWP, beautiful. The film had a great ending. The Bond girl was underwater, running out of air, and just in time, there's James Bond, the theme music resumes! Great scene! And walking around the mall after, how happy I felt! And today I am sad that time is gone, many family members are gone, life is sadder, time is running out, and I did not use that bag of Estee Lauder products up! I probably used them a few times and then threw them out and bought something else. And maybe if I had used every drop, in my mind, I could have held on to life, to time, to happiness. At any rate I would have had more money. If only we knew about No Buys and Project Pans then! This is just one of a million examples of how I think about this.  When I woke up Elle S was still analyzing her samples! She was talking about how her project taught her to evaluate (excellent video, Oct 1, 2017).  Last night in bed I took some photos of samples I need to use up. Sorry for so many long posts, but I've really had to work on this for the last 24 hours. Primers, shower gels and body scrub, toners, and masques.   
    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.
