Julep October 2014 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

So will the lip glosses be the beauty item or the mask? I was really hoping it would be the mask but I'm sure the lip glosses are lower value so they might only have the mask as an add on?

 The lip glosses come in the regular boxes.  Looks like the mask will be an add-on, or in modern beauty.  I logged into my account and looked at the order history and it said for bombshell that I was getting Marla, Briana and a lip gloss.

I'm in love with the IT Girl colors --- I'm thinking "upgrade" to polish lovers. I've never done one before--- is it a $25 upgrade to receive all the box colors? Is there any other products besides the polishes? TIA :)

I'll be customizing that for SURE. I already have the hand repair and I want the new product. I have plenty of lip stuff from last month. Oy.

Just tried and was able to edit my box early.  Went with one called "The Dark Arts" because I don't have anything remotely like the contents:

  • Glam Roc (It Girl): Midnight purple & gold stardust (matte glitter)
  • Cleopatra (Bombshell): Black latex crème (no actual latex in formula)
  • Estelle (Boho Glam): Midnight black with holographic shimmer
  • Oxygen Performance Top Coat: A breathable, fast-dry top coat with major shine and stamina.
  • White Chevron Nail Decals: Zig zags stick on & look great with or without polish.

Julep is STILL showing I have one prepaid month left after this.  Only, I was one of the people with the "3 months for $16.97" deal and this is already my fifth month.  Oh well.

As a blogger, I absolutely hate how they did the swatch photos this month, just in terms of the big square photo with the 4 circle swatches in it. Otherwise, I actually kind of like the polishes this month.

I went with Bombshell this month and added on Tia.  I hope I like the sleeping mask since I've never tried one before.

I happened to wake up at 6:15AM on a Saturday and decided I may as well check the Maven window before going back to sleep LOL. I was expecting not to want anything from this collection but I ended up liking enough of the offerings to customize a box. I picked 2 polishes, Ledi and Dana, and also the Lip Crayon in Almond Nude from last month. I'm pretty happy with these selections :)

I'm with you on that. Also as a blogger I wish they would go back to referrals being Jule points rather than a $15 credit. 1) The credits can't be stacked. 2) You have to spend more to use it. 3) You can't use it to pay for a subscription box. At least with the Jules we bloggers use to be able to score boxes for free to review. I'm using the last of my Jules to get the ultimate package however I may change my mind and skip since using it would leave me with 1600 Jules which can't pay for a box next month.

Says it's already paid for so I chose a box, otherwise I would've skipped. I picked the sleep mask (seriously, it's just night cream lol), Dana and Shailene. Had 750 Jules so I got the mystery add on too. Not really excited about any if it, but it's free so whatevs. I do think they're doing a great job with the prepackaged boxes each month, they are always an awesome value.

I decided to get the Dark Arts box and added on Dana. I was thinking of skipping, but I don't have any dupes of those polishes and October is my birthday month so decided to just go for it.

Gah.  I want it all (well, I could pass on DeAnn) plus the black cat decals!  I'm going to go with It Girl plus Logan and four sets of the kitties (I have Halloween gift packages to put together, and these would be *perfect*!) now, and then I'll see how this weekend shakes out spending-wise.  And/or BPAL-selling wise.

There were some great selections this month - I was pleasantly surprised.  I had one free box left this month so I selected "It Girl" and then used Jules to get the "Classic With a Twist" box (wanted to try the mask).  I did Tia and Marla as add-ons and had enough Jules for one of them.  So I'm getting the mask and 7 polishes for $6.99!  Managed to get every single polish I wanted this month by ordering the way I did - and I still didn't have to upgrade to the customized box plan or buy the polish upgrade - not too shabby!

Thanks for this reminder (just a night cream) I was over thinking it. :-) easier skip for me since I have so many night creams I need to use and the mask was my deciding factor for the box.

    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now.
