Julep Maven Box: August 2014

Julep has really been on a roll for the past few months.

Julep August box

There were a ton of great, bright, fun colors in the August collection. But being the glitter freak that I am, I had to go for a box that contained Queen Anne, which Julep created in honor of their 3rd birthday and describes as a “lilac confetti microglitter”. I was not disappointed when my box arrived – Queen Anne is everything I was hoping for. It’s insanely glittery but also somehow muted and elegant at the same time (queenly, I guess). I’m wearing it on my toes right now and I absolutely love it.

I’m not a fan of Julep’s beauty offerings (mostly on principle, because can a nail polish company really make better blush/eyeshadow/whatever than what I already have?) so I went with the “nail tools” box which included the Ta-Da Quick Dry Drops (they are fine, not any better or worse than the Sally Hansen I usually use) and the Mighty Nail & Cuticle Serum (I like the click pen dispenser and it seems to help my dried out nail beds). I think the box was also supposed to contain some sort of nail polish clean-up tool, but this seems to have gone missing.

Finally, I had to add on Tazeen, which Julep describes as a “full-coverage Bollywood gold glitter”. Another glitter bomb WIN – this is gorgeous. Two coats on the nails and I couldn’t stop staring.

How about you – did you get your August Maven box? What colors are you loving?
