Julep Maven June | The Deep End

Hello June bugs! This month’s Julep Maven box is undoubtedly the best one I’ve ever gotten. I’ve got to be a year into my subscription at this point and I may be more in love than ever.

I did another unboxing for you! Opening it up is fun because I never remember what I’ve gotten, and sometimes– like this time– I get surprises!

Now that I’ve had the products for a bit I was able to test and fall in love! Here are some more details for you:

  • Manda (Boho Glam) – sky blue with gold shimmer. This color reminds me of a mermaid! It’s got a brilliant but subtle shimmer.
  • Lillian (It Girl) – alabaster pink crème. This very light pink is so up my ally right now since I’m so interested in near-white shades!
  • Marcy (Bombshell) – prosecco silk (semi-matte opalescent). This gorgeous matte sparkle champagne is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. The finish is unique, but undeniably lovely. All I can say is look for this in my next favorites post!

Gel Eye Glider eyeliner

These come in tons of shades but I picked Smoky Taupe Shimmer and Olive! They go on very smooth and wear well. I’m super happy with the colors I picked and would consider adding more of these to my collection!

Feels Like Velvet eyeshadow duo in Moonlight & Starlight

I did pick this duo for the name, but it also has the most beautiful and most versatile colors. Moonlight is a matte lilac grey and starlight is a white sand shimmer. These are very nice in texture, as the name would imply!

Long Weekend Eyeshadow Palette

An impulse purchase and a fabulous deal, this gorgeous palette holds 11 neutral shades with fun, summer names: Bask, Brunch, Catnap, Friday, Getaway, Bonfire, Lowtide, Monday, Saturday, Sunset, and Sunday. The packaging had me with strokes of watercolor blue, pink, and yellow. This is a nice substitute for an Urban Decay Naked Palette if you can get it discounted like a Maven!

So that’s the scoop! And yes I’m obsessed with all of it. Click here for a free month of Julep – trust me, it’s worth it!

Watercolor Pokémon & Zelda

I promised another featured art Friday Favorite, and surprise! it’s Pokémon-related.  Actually, it’s even better because it’s Pokémon meets The Legend of Zelda– my two favorite video game franchises!

Check out David Pilatowsky’s beautiful watercolor crossover artwork!

I happen to think Charmander and Squirtle make the most adorable Links, and love Horsea as Ruto!  My favorite, though, has got to be Celebi as Midna– perfection!

Which do you like best?

Sorry for the lazy Friday post, but next week will bring more things with more writing attached to them.  (This stream of consciousness sentence is how my brain works.)

Have a great weekend everyone!
