Julep October 2014 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

I'm two hundred points away from getting a free full polish upgrade box.  My birthday is in January.  I may very well just continue to skip until I get my birthday points and then do a full polish upgrade box before I finally give up on them completely.  This company is just making me tired.  SquareHue also sends out PLM stuff, and I might be disappointed in some of the color choices (*so* much yellow and orange!), and I don't get the change to skip before I see what's being sent out, but I have never had a single issue with them as far as customer service goes.  I don't think I've even had a reason to contact them (well, except for that one time they specifically asked me to forward a particular photo of my collection to them that I had posted on Instagram, which I don't think counts against them here), which is actually a very good sign.  There was one month when it seemed like the boxes got lost in the mail before they magically appeared in mailboxes, but that was clearly a USPS thing because we could see that the boxes were scanned into the system before vanishing.  (It also helps that I'm on the $14.99 lifetime rate.  That makes the disappointing months easier to deal with.)

I have Julia and Leslie so I can easily ship those (Julie and Ledi). The green-silver looks familiar as does the dark purple. Edit: wait, which one is Julie??

 

I am getting Dana (though I don't have a black light, but I'm tempted to buy one now!), Tia, Shailene and the CWAT colours. That's about all I can justify.

So nothing to do with the October box directly but I was going through my stuff because of comments how some of the colors look similar to past colors which prompted me to go through my stuff. Among my stuff is Julep Reveal which is almost a full tube and wanted to know if it was still sold (it's not). Came across Julep Color Fan which are the swatching nails on sticks that you can buy on Ebay for under $3 a package (typically free shipping) for 50 sticks.

 

Julep's price: $8 / $6.40 Maven price for 22 sticks.

 

Rip off.

After looking at Julia, it really does look a lot like Shailene, but Shailene looks like it could be darker in the swatches. Or are we talking about three polishes that could be dupes? (Julie, Julia, Shailene) We know how bad the Julep swatches can be, so maybe they really are the same? I don't know.

 

I'm having trouble placing the green-silver too, but it's familiar to me as well. I was originally thinking it's similar to a Zoya shade, but I can't remember now.

Dragon Chick: I can't quote at work, but I know the one you're thinking of: Zoya Cassedy. (My coworker got it.)

 

Yes, I'm thinking Shailene might be darker than Julia. I have swatched Julia and it seems to be a sheer, light purple with gold shimmer, whereas Shailene appears to be a darker, redder purple.

 

I'm also excited for the sleep mask though I know it's just a night cream. I have no night creams currently though and at age 34 I guess it's time.

Judging by Julep's pics - Shailene is much darker than Julia.

It reminds me of essence kiss me, freddy.  This site is in Dutch, but I think the photos are accurate in color and sparkle:  http://www.nailpolishheaven.nl/2014/09/15/essence-kiss-freddy-swatch/

 

I wanted the Julep version until I saw the essence version at Fred Meyer and remembered I already own it.  Speaking of dupes, does anyone know of one for Logan?  That's really the main one I want at this point.

The greensilver reminds me of celia.

 

Jillian is also similar to shailene

 

Or Petra and the burgundy one.

 

I'm sure none are exact dupes, but too see similar for me to consider getting extras.

I want to say OPI Muir Muir on the Wall is pretty close based on the swatches I've seen.

I skipped this month...I just don't really have any interest in the product and the polishes (like many of you have pointed out) are very similar to either other Julep colors or other brands I have already. I do have to say though that Julep did a really good job of presenting a season appropriate collection this time. 

 

I hope everyone that orders gets their boxes quickly this month!

What about Butter London's Branwen's Feather for a Logan dupe?

It looks much fleckier than Logan to me.  It also seems to lean a touch towards burgundy.

I usually put that I didn't like the colors, because that's pretty much my reason every month I skip.

Thats the same thing I picked. I have been very disillusioned with Julep as of late.

Hmmmm. This October baby is super disappointed in the birthstone color. Boo!

 

Yeah, there's nothing exciting about it for me, either.  (Eek, will I really be 37 in a couple of weeks?)  Actually probably won't buy any more of the birthstone polishes.  If I want something pink and sparkly, I have a couple of Zoyas that work.  I can probably layer to get my nails looking opalescent (I have this Ciate that works well as a topcoat and sort of gives things a pearly finish; I'll bet I can get something that looks like opal if I play around with that).

 

The December one looked nice but was really too similar to the September one for me to want both.  I have garnet, ruby, emerald, diamond, and sapphire, and those are really the only ones I want.

November and December sneak peeks from the meet up, not my blog: http://ohmyswatch.wordpress.com/2014/09/26/julep-maven-meetup-and-holiday-sneak-peeks/

Those glitters!!! I'm all over those! And the eye shadow palette is very cute. Looks like November will be more dark colors? Boo. I knew mascara was coming sooner or later. Love these early sneak peaks so I can plan out my polish purchases :)

The eyeshadow swatches look unconvincing. Matte eyeshadow can so easily be chalky and I would not be surprised. Also I bet the modem maven is going to be the eyeshadow and brush as the products. I would if they're throwing in the mascara as the alt December product.

 

 

The polishes are sooo nice tho. I'm not usually into glitter and even I am moved

Also, she said that the Holiday polishes were not the ones for the December Maven boxes, but that they were going to be sold in some kind of set.

Arghh!! I was planning on using up all my Jules and cancelling after Nov selection, but seeing what is coming up makes me want to stick around at least until the holidays! Honestly 2 years ago I NEVER wore nail polish. EVER. And now I'm addicted and change it at least twice a week. I have two shoeboxes full of it and Julep products everywhere! HELP!

    • Anti Aging Creams are used to provide you with the youthful appearance you always want. To look Vibrant, you need to choose the best anti aging / anti wrinkles cream.  Which creams are considered as the best? The Creams with the right ingredients which includes many Vitamins and Minerals as well as Matrixyl and Hyaluronic acid. When to start using Anti Aging Creams?

    • Waist training is a slow and gradual process of reducing the waist's measurement through a waist cinching corset.  With proper diet and exercise, training the waist by wearing a cincher will help you achieve the highly coveted hourglass figure. What's awesome about our waist trainers, is that while it helps with smoothening out the belly flabs, it corrects your posture through the frame it creates around your torso and back. The tight waist compression will help reduce food volume intake and change your diet from 3 large portions of meals a day, to frequent smaller meals. more info about waist training corset visit:- www.corsetforsale.com
