Julep Maven: Countdown Collection

I got my December Julep Maven box early in the month and this time, I’ve picked something aside from nail polish to tell you about!

My December box contained:

  • Karissa – A Boho Glam color and an immediate holiday favorite, Karissa is a holly berry red.  This beautiful shade is a festive as Revlon Red and I’m pairing it with gold on my nails right now!
  • Soleil – Another Bombshell color, Soleil is a lustrous rose gold chrome.  You know I’m into rose gold this year so my nails look like Mario Kart’s Pink Gold Peach!  This is similar to Essie’s Penny Talk, but a bit more gold than pink.
  • Orbital Eyeshadow in Moonbeam – This is my first foray into beauty products from Julep and I’ll admit, I picked it completely off of the name.  The Moonbeam color is silver with lilac pearlescence.  It’s not terribly pigmented, but it is very sparkly.  I’m interested in trying out a couple more of these.
  • Paula – This Bombshell collection color is a Persian blue with gold microglitter.  My experience with Shailene from my October box leads my to suspect this might get gummy after one use, but I couldn’t loved this shade of blue.  I selected it as an add on.  I’ll report back after a couple uses.
  • Queen Anne – This It Girl color is a lilac confetti microglitter that I added on for free!  A friend had forwarded me an email with a click-through to add this polish to your Maven box for free.  How could I resist that?

 

The last thing in my Maven box (aside from a few peppermint candies!) was my coupon!  This one is a great one: a free polish!

If you want to be a Maven too and get a free box, leave your girl a comment.
