Julep: April 2015 Spoilers

Recommended Posts

Yep, it was on Jane's Instagram. I'm really hoping for more than just Silver, since they already have one with Tin Man.

I found our colors and products! I put bit.ly/AprilSneakPeek in as my URL just to see if anything would happen and voila, there they were! I'm a big fan of bright colors and have been thinking about brow products for some time now, so I'm pretty happy with this collection. A Polish Lover Upgrade or Ultimate Upgrade might be in my future.

Is it just me or does Connie look a lot like Bette?

 

I feel like a lot of the colors look way too much like Julep colors I already have...but I'm probably just reaching saturation point with Julep polishes!

On the blog, Jane says that the new one, Angie, is Tin Man on crack.

The colors look awesome, but to me it also seems like we've had dupes of most of them within the past few months ...

Maybe, the final pics will convince me .. I do like the brow powder/brush!

I watched Janes reveal video for like a minute to see the reveal of colors-- all of them lined up looked so bright & beautiful!! I'm excited to see them paired up. I'm an original maven - $19.99 a month, Is customizing worth the extra $5? The way I look at it is that I can get another add on for $6 or $7 if I really want a color-- then I get an additional polish for $2-3 more than customizing.

I like customizing and paying for 3 months at a time comes out to $19.99 per month. You can often choose to customize with items that aren't in the curated boxes.

This is my first month, so I can't skip apparently, and I'm trying to decide how to customize.  I just joined by purchasing the lucky mystery box (mixed feelings) and the lipstick welcome box, so I feel like I already have a ton of new colors!  I was thinking about customizing by keeping Connie and swapping for the brow color and maybe the clear lip liner (as that's a make-up product I don't own anything like right now).  I'd like to try each of those, although for $25 it doesn't seem like a lot of product.

 

Any guesses as to the type of things that might be in the natural beauty mystery box or spring break polish mystery options?  I think I might want to play it safe as I just got a few colors that aren't my favorite in the lucky mystery box!

 

Oh, and I added on the oxygen base coat to my first order, and it seems to really work.  I painted my nails with it and the green color Darby on Monday night, and added my own Sally Hansen top coat and it is still going strong with no chips today.  I'm pretty impressed with that as I type a lot (impressed enough that I ordered a couple of colors that I know I will like and some top coats with my new member 50% off code).  So I'd recommend the base coat and Darby for sure.

This is my last paid month and I'm pretty sure I'm going to cancel because I'm drowning in polish, so I decided to use my Jules to get as much as I could. Turns out, it's not that much lol.

Is anyone else bummed at the upgrades?  I would totally get the Beauty Lover Upgrade this month but as a pale cool blonde I don't think the warm brown and rich brown brow powders will work for me and you can't pick your shades in the upgrade!

Over on Facebook they said that if you upgraded and called them, you could pick your shade over the phone.

I actually did the big upgrade. I love the lipstick colors, the nail colors, and I'm excited for the brow stuff. However, I will be calling to have them send me the cool brown brow thing. If they had to pick two colors, why did they not go with the two middle colors that match the most people overall? Whatever, as long as I get the color that matches me best.

I upgraded to customize-- it's a pretty cool system!! I ❤️ the colors this month-- I guess I'm just ready to move on from my dark winter colors. All these colors just pop & are so fun & bright-- can't help to be happy when I look at my nails :).

Glad you decided to upgrade! For me - esp since I already have quite a collection of polish - it's more than well worth being able to choose what I'm getting, though it also makes me less likely to skip - a good or bad thing, depending in perspective (enjoyment vs budget) - b/c I can pretty much always put together a box I'm more than happy with, even if it doesn't include a thing from that month's collection. I've found it to often be a good way to restock on some of my fave julep items also. If it were solely a matter of being able to switch polish colors around I might have agreed w/ your thought re: adding on for an extra dollar or two & getting an extra polish vs customizing but b/c - as you've now seen - the options are so much more than that, I don't think that comparison really holds up (unless you are someone who knows you are always going to want several of that month's polishes; then that does make sense).

Like someone else mentioned, I pay every three months so that I'm still paying only $19.99 a month. I wouldn't be willing/ able to pay for a year in order to get the lesser price but I don't see the three months as a huge deal at all, esp as you can still skip anytime & the way they charge you are really only paying two months in advance, for instance say it's currently billing time for month A...if you do the three-month pre-pay you are charged $59.97 rather than 24.99 & that covers you for that month - month A - & two additional months, be it the next two months or two other months further down the calendar. You aren't charged again until you've used up the three months that you've paid for. Some subs charge ahead &/ or charge you every 3 months regardless if skips, etc so just thought I'd answer all the questions I initially had in case - now that you've tried the customized box - you might want to save a few $$ moving forward.

 

Enjoy your first customized biz! What did you end up choosing?

(I went for the brow product in Taupe - I'm a pale dark blonde - the Makeup Eraser that I've been wanting to get, & the Oxygen Topcoat which I really like...& used Jules to add on the new Oxygen basecoat. The polish shades were nice but nothing really different than ones I already have so I went the more utilitarian route this month.)

Here's a screen shot of my order-- I ❤️ All the colors!! Also, for my beauty product, I went with the sea salt spray. It's s great spray & I ❤️ The piecy texture. The only prob with it is the sprayer- I'm hoping that it's fixed. I wanted to try the brow product but I couldn't decide what color to go with & I have the hardest times with eye brow product color-/ some are too dark, some are too reddish etc. I can't wait to hear everyone's reviews - now that I'm customizing, I can always pick it up next month

Did anyone buy anything from the Secret Store? I really only did so I could use the GETCOLOR promo and pick up some of the glitter polishes I was missing.

 

Apparently you can use the promo code twice, and Ebates is now 5% on Julep orders so it was a great deal all around.

Have any longer term subscribers had issues with polish becoming gummy/thick and unusable? I've tried my standard rescue trick adding remover but no it didn't work. I had to pitch 6 bottles last night. A few months ago I had also lost 6+ bottles for the same reason. They're all from the last 12 months and several had never even been opened. I don't think it's a storage issue on my end since I store all polish in the same location and haven't had any other brands do this, even much older opened bottles. I'm guessing it's the "5 free" lack of preservatives causing it. I change polish daily so I go through Julep bottles fairly quickly. I'm super bummed because I lost my all time favorite, the Valentines Day 2014 gold-red micro glitter :-(

    • Careprost is a regenerating agent that was originally developed to treat hypotrichosis and restore healthy eyelash growth. The product is a sterile solution that should be applied externally, treating them with the growth lines of the upper eyelashes and eyebrows.  Perfect eyelashes complete the look of your eyes; they add beauty to you and make you look attractive. Fuller eyelashes not only define your eyes but also sharpen your facial features. Eyes with long lashes look bigger and brighter. Whatever might be your skin’s complexion, your sharp features make you glow even in your dark skin color. The cosmetic market has a wide variety of eyelashes of different colors, length, density, and curvy ones etc. which you can wear with ease. But are these fake eyelashes are much being easier to apply or they are actually hassled. Putting fake eyelashes is a tough task and make the process troublesome is to make them intact for a long duration, controlling your hands to not to touch them. Using fake eyelashes is a temporary solution; it does not give you a natural look.
