Julep September 2014 (SPOILERS)

Recommended Posts

 

Here are Ryan, Quinn, and the Magenta Plum lip crayon:

 

 
 
 

 

 

 

Thank you! I like Ryan even better than I thought I would. And, it seems I was right about Quinn. It looks like the base color of Glam Roc. (That's why I got it)

So what is everyone thinking about the lip crayons?   Overall, I'm really pleased.  I got the Aurora Pink and the Almond.   I love the formula/consistency, it's very soft and creamy. 

 

The one thing that bummed me out a bit was the color of the Aurora Pink.  From the images on Julep's site, I was expecting a mauve-y pink, and this is definitely more of a carnation pink.  It's OK, it's still a flattering color for me and I'll definitely wear it, but not what I was looking for.   I wish they'd get that color preview issue sorted out.

 

The Almond is sort of a honey color, it's a very nice neutral.   I'll get a lot of use out of it.

Love the fact that it's only the second, and people are already getting their boxes or at least have shipping notifications. This makes me super happy!

I splurged a little this month and got the CWaT box (Lupita and Quinn) with the Cardinal Red lip crayon plus I added on Mary Lee and the Magenta Plum lip crayon. I got my box today and love everything! The colors are great for fall and I'm excited to have some fun colors in the satin finish. As for the lip crayon, just from playing around with them they seem to be great and have a good color payoff. 

 

Overall, I'm really excited for this month's box and am even more excited that I got everything so soon and that it all arrived as I was expecting.

I'm kinda mad that they sent my box to Indiana after it was already in Ohio. I don't know why it just couldn't have come right to KY where I'm at instead of moving along to another border state.

 

I think these shipping companies are el stupido. They seem to let things hop around alot.

It's because they use a spoke type route for all packages. Everything goes to a certain main hub (Indiana) and then goes out to each state they are to be delivered to.

Thank you! I forgot about those! I'll try to see if they work ;)

 

COLORFORYOU worked for me, POLISHPERK did not. Though I may have already used it in the past and it can't be applied to my account again

It's the unique codes from back in February for taking 3 boxes. I was saving it for something really good, but nothing really good every came lol. I think there's a code (or codes) right now that gets you a free polish with a $10/$15 (?) min purchase though. POLISHPERK? COLORFORYOU? I'm not sure what codes are active right now.

 

Are they valid for secret store purchases? I can't seem to get either code to work for me.

Codes are only valid if you add a non-Secret Store polish and I believe they also work with add-on items but not on only SS items. I hope that made sense. lol

You can have the $15 of cart item be secret store, but the free polish has to be a regular, full-priced item.

They forgot Queen Anne. Sent me Eliana instead. And, Then sent me Candice as a bonus. But, I already own it. Crap.

 

I can deal with the bonus of Candice. But, I wanted Queen Anne. I seriously am pretty mad. Another month of screw ups.

 

ETA: They also sent me Daria. What the heck. But, I have been wanting that one and didn't have it.

Okay. That's probably why I got them. But, Eliana is a mystery to me.

 

I need another blue like I need a hole in my head.

 

It should go well with Daria though. Already thinking about doing something with them together.

 

I tell you the one I'm in love with the most already. Mary Lee. Wow, she is pretty!!!

 

I'm not crazy about Fifi though. It's way too light for me to do anything with other than use it as a base for some of my glitters. Which is fine. I only took It Girl so I could get both Ryan and Mahima and they were worth it.

 

Gonna do my nails with Ryan and then use Quinn as an accent nail. I've got to change my polish today so bad. What I have on has just gotten so ugly.

 

ETA: I'm not really too mad anymore. But, I really do wish they would stop sending wrong orders. I'm just gonna call them about the Queen Anne situation and hope they send it. Because, I really really did want that one.

I received my box today.  I selected Classic with a Twist along with the lip pout in Aurora Pink crème.  Unfortunately the color doesn't work with my skin tone :(  It's really pretty...sigh.   

Want to swap for it?  I'm very interested in trying it!

Wow, my box was crazy messed up this month. I ordered:

 

Eliana (Bombshell)

Kirby (Bombshell)

Queen Anne

Mahima (It Girl)

Ana

Aurora Pink Plush Pout

 

Instead I got:

 

Eliana

Aurora Pink

The two bonus polishes for taking three add-ons

AND

Quinn (CWaT)

Lupita (CWaT)

Erin (Boho)

Fifi (It Girl)

 

So, four other polishes! I called and they still have the four missing polishes in stock and are sending them -- and told me to keep the four other ones. I was only on hold about a minute, so if you have problems with your box, call instead of emailing!

 

Also, they told me all of the polishes are still in stock and that they were able to plan better after last month. So fingers crossed everyone gets what they picked!

Got my CWAT box today and I am in love with the magenta lip crayon, have it on right now still! Also put on Lupita today and it is a gorgeous darker red color, perfect for fall.

Got my box today, with the correct order of Kirby, Lupita, and oxygen base coat. I haven't received candies in any of my boxes for several months, and this was no exception. I'm so happy with the colors I picked. I haven't swatched or worn them yet (not worth it until my day off; I can't wear polish at work). They look perfect though.

    • 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!     
    • The best concert I have ever attended was by Bohemia: the Punjabi Rapper. He was in Delhi (Lajpat Nagar) He is my favourite Artist and Rapper. When I saw him for the first time, my soul felt bliss ❤️ All the crowd of fans were going insane about him I can't forget that moment and want to attend more and more of his concerts
