I haven’t done a Julep unboxing post in a very long time. I’m so sorry about that. I have been getting boxes, but I haven’t upgraded or bought from the Secret Store. Some months, I only got products, no polish. I even skipped last month for the very first time.
Let’s get back on the Bandwagon with the June 2016 Box! This month’s theme was Beat The Heat. One of the options was a pre-release of a product that I was really excited to try, and I have a review & swatches!
Here’s what I chose this month!
Julep June 2017 Maven Box
- Julep Nail Polish in Dory ($14)
- Julep Nail Polish in Fran ($14)
- Julep Cushion Complexion in 120 Linen ($30)
This box is worth $58, and I paid $19.99 shipped. That’s a 66% savings!
I do the My Maven option where I get to pick what’s in my box (when I take a normal box). I really like the Customizing Option. I takes the stress out of trying to pick a box where I love 100% of everything. Plus, I still have my skips, and I don’t have to pay for a box for until November because of pre-payment! If you’d like to sign up for customizable boxes, check out the My Maven program!
Because I do the customizing option, I was able to try the Brand-New Cushion Complexion 5-in-1 Perfector with Tumeric. I’m always looking for a good concealer that actually covers & doesn’t feel thick. The website describes it as “This multitasking skin perfector has a natural, demi-matte finish with buildable medium-to-full coverage that conceals, corrects, illuminates, blurs & brightens.”
I really like this product! Check out these photos!
The top photo, I only have the Cushion Complexion on the left eye, and nothing on the right. In the bottom, I added it to my other eye. These photos are natural light, unedited.
This stuff is so light, I can’t even feel it! It’s really nice! I love the applicator!
Here are some hand swatches:
I was worried that I was going to choose the right shade, but I’m really happy with my choice of Linen. Julep has a quiz you can take to figure out which shade to choose.
In this photo, I blended the right side of the swatch. It’s very easy to blend. It has a more powdery-finish instead of an oily/thick feeling. It’s really great & I’m sure I’ll be ordering this again!
