Julep September 2014 (SPOILERS)

Recommended Posts

*Note that the pics don't exactly line up with the correct boxes, but the profile names are there.

 

I'm half hoping those of us that did the $16 deal still have a credit left so I can get Kirby.  Though, the description makes it sound like Crystal??  And I guess I wouldn't mind the Magenta lippie.  I'll skip if I don't have a credit though, because other than that I'm not really into the collection.  The colors all look like Julep dupes.

Sorry it was much too much to just list, and I can't access fb on my work comp to post the pic! But @@Lolo22 took care of it :)

Thanks for sharing! I'm definitely interested in the plush pout(s) and I'm glad they did satins in good fall colors!

Already not that excited for my It Girl box.

*breathe*Just finish the year out Olivia. You can do this.

 

*Edit: I AM kinda glad that they're making more satins. However Fifi looks too similar to Jules or Essie's Ballet Slippers. & how the hell do you make a gold cream? I guess we'll ultimately see tomorrow.

Ok is it just me or is it at LEAST the third time Julep has had a greenish color and gold color in their It Girl box?   February, June and now September boxes all have green and gold colors for It Girl.   Sort of annoying.  I like that they did more fall colors and a couple of Satin finishes for Fall though.  I cannot WAIT another month, for the October reveal.  I am dying for a Halloween theme.  Dying.

Does anybody know if we can use Jules for add-ons?  Or is it just for maven boxes now?

 

You can use Jules to buy add ons, you just don't earn them on add ons.

Here's the sneak peek post from the Julep blog....

 

September Maven Sneak Peek: Plush Pout

 

I'm up for that Aurora Pink one, but I'll have to see what else I can combine with it.  Not really interested in any of the polishes.

I like Aurora Pink too even though I have a bunch of colors just like it. It would be nice if these were more of a matte finish for fall.

Maybe it's just the mood I'm in, but the greys and blues are speaking to me.  I will try to get Kirby, Erin and Quinn on my $18 special (assuming I still have a month left), then decide whether to order some more polishes to use up the Jules on that account.  We'll see how I'm feeling in the morning.

Thanks for the preview of the colors!  I'm kinda feeling the dark shades...Eliana, Mary Lee, Lupita, and Ryan definitely pique my interest.

 

The lip crayon looks kind of cute, I'm a sucker for lip products...if I get one I'll probably go for the pink one.

I'm kind of feeling Lupita but I have a feeling it's going to be in the same color family as Zoya Veronica, and I'm also pretty sure I have a similar color in Nails Inc Picadilly Circus. I also really love the idea of Quinn because purple but I don't really care for satin

 

---but the main thing is i really like the names of both polishes because I'm a loser, and that seems like the worst reason to buy polishes if they're not your name. XD

 

ghhhhhhu I wonder what will be in the modern maven box. If it's just the primer and one of the lippies that's going to be a huge ripoff. I'm really wanting a cobalt blue lately too.

I think their names are getting to be so weird.  I can think of awesome names, that they haven't even used yet.

After last month this month looks kinda disapointing. I have one month left on my 3 month sub. I think I'll try to customize for Mary Lee, Kirby and Mahima.

Because of the shipping errors this month, I now have 4750 Jules. Once my prepaid sub runs out, I'll have two months worth of free boxes.

at 4500 points to you should have enough Jules for a a complete polish upgrade. of course you might like the products or maybe you won't like an entire polish collection but just an FYI Edited by Kyuu

I'm not sure it will work like that? Did you speak to anyone at Julep? I also did the special 3 month sub, and assuming September is in fact our 3rd month...come October I believe they would bill us regular price for a 3 month subscription because that's what we had? Maybe I'm super confused! Just thinking ahead for myself...I am currently short on Jules to buy a Maven Box. I will have the right amount after taking this next box. So...I wonder if I can change to a monthly subscription, pay for the next month's box (October) and use my jules for an additional box that month. You have to be an active Maven to use your jules...and I don't plan on keeping this sub.  

 

Anyone clarify for me? Sorry if I sound as confusing as I am...........

I remember reading somewhere that you can call Julep and have them put you on a month to month sub. It has to be done before you get billed for the next 3 months. Hopefully it's true.

I thought last month's (well August) names were different, (just names I've never heard of) and September has some different names.  Not to be a dork, but we haven't seen Aria or Spencer (Pretty Little Liars) haha Is there an Aubrey or Elizabeth yet?  I don't know, I would have to browse through names, and come up with a bunch more that we have not seen.  But off the top of my head, those are ones I have not seen.

Yeah, from what I've heard you have to call and switch to a monthly sub, then you can use Jules.

What you mean like Avni, which is a name of both Indian and Jewish origin? Waleska is a Polish name, Tazeen has Islamic origins, and Sushmita, Kirti, and Neha both are all common Hindi names. Actually, Neha is a more popular name than Aria, even in the US. I roomed with a girl named Tanziya, Nuala, and Zeinab in college (and one of them is even white!) Or are their names too weird to deserve polishes?

 

Believe it or not, 'Murica isn't the center of the world, and considering the collection is called "Wanderlust" I think it was rather nice of Julep to give some foreign names some love. I don't see why we have to go through every go through every flatbread name in the world before getting to the interesting, excuse me, non-western ones.

 

And yes, a quick google search reveals Julep had an Elizabeth in Feb 2012, which was retired. Julep still also has Liz; or do we need to repeat every version of Elizabeth before we can name a polish "Nuala"

    • 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.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
