For those of you who read my blog, you’ll know of my beauty box opinions. Julep has become my favorite (for their assortment and subscription functionality), and I’ve found 3 products in shades that I’m seriously loving for this Spring.
- Julep Nail Color in Whitney: this is beautiful nude taupe nail polish in a cream finish. I love it for my manicures, especially layering underneath essie’s Gel Setter top coat. It lasts incredibly well, and is subtle to wear with everything.
- Julep It’s Balm Full Coverage Lip Crayon in Nectar Pink Creme: Ok, straight talk? This is just a gorgeous nude pink in a fantastic formula. It reminds me of my favorite Cargo Essential Lip Color in Sante Fe, and it has a moisturizing core to care for lips. It has the slightest sheen to it, and wears beautifully throughout the day. In a pinch, I used it as blush, and it looked awesome.
- Julep When Pencil Met Gel Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Smokey Taupe Shimmer: I’ll admit I have VERY high standards for eyeliner, for two main reasons; 1) I have sensitive eyes, and 2) I want a smooth formula that lasts. And this eyeliner may have just unseated my all-time favorite “Eqyptian” Cream Shaper eyeliner from Clinique. This shade is gorgeous for most eye colors, and the formula is so smooth but long lasting. I’m totally impressed with this, as it didn’t cause me any irritation and yet contains shimmer. (Shimmer or mica particles are often a culprit of irritation in eye makeup)
This brand is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. Not only is the box subscription model easy to use, the value is great and formulas are high quality. Also, their formulas are very user friendly and caring for skin. Julep is also starting to be featured in retailers, so keep your eyes on this brand!
