Julep Maven | March 2013

As you know, I was obsessed with my last Julep box. And I am just as in love with this one. I have been constantly thinking of spring colours (despite it snowing), and this month Julep delivered with their Playful Collection. I chose 'It Girl' this month because it had the exact colours from the collection that I wanted.

Box Breakdown 
Strawberry-Mint Lip Balm
Teri Coral Creme
Shenae Mint with Opalescent Shimmer
Simone Lilac with Opalescent Shimmer
I am not usually one for shimmers, preferring cremes or all-out glitters, but Shenae & Simone are gorgeous! Not frosty looking at all. They almost look like a creme finish but in certain lights have a cool blue duochrome shift. These colours were just what I was looking for. Coral, mint, & lilac: what could be more perfect?

The first manicure I did with my new polishes was a gradient using Shenae & Simone. The colours blended beautifully. I topped it off with the Julep Freedom Top Coat.

I am also really loving the lipbalm. The strawberry mint flavour smells & tastes so good!


I can't wait for it to finally be Spring, so I can seem a little more appropriate wearing these colours. Are you a Julep Maven? What box did you pick or did you skip?
