Julep│October 2017


After a bit of a hiatus, I decided to opt in for Julep's October Maven box. Being that it's Autumn, I was in the mood for some new nail colors, more specifically-shimmery jewel tones. I picked up a couple of colors that I think are just fabulous, and they make wonderful additions to my collection. I also picked up a liquid lip color with an airy texture that feels great on the lips. 

I couldn't be anymore excited about the three nail colors I chose this month. They are each so beautiful, and so rich in pigment...there is no doubt that they will be in constant rotation this winter. Christi is a stunning teal shimmer and the one that I am currently sporting on my nails-love, Rendee is an ultraviolet matte shimmer that looks super cool, and Alonna is a purple shimmer that's just a dream to look at.

It's pretty hard for me to resist a red lip color, so I had to add the It's Whipped Matte Lip Mousse to my October box. At Midnight is a timeless fireball red matte that will never go out of style. The bold hue is super flattering on me, and I seem to enjoy the formula of the lip mousse for the most part-it's smooth, lightweight, pigmented, non-drying, and leaves a pretty stain. My only small concern with this lip mousse is that it doesn't fully set on the lips. Some of the color does transfer, and even migrates outside of the lip line-a lip liner would come in handy in this situation. Julep's It's Whipped Lip Mousse contains finely milled pigments that help provide an opaque color payoff, as well as rosehip seed oil which adds some nourishment, protection and hydration to lips.
