December Julep Maven 2013

Better late than never, I always say.  Because I'm a pretty big procrastinator.  It's true.  Well I received my Julep Maven December box on the 2nd and I'm just getting to posting it now.  I switched from my Bombshell profile to Boho Glam this month.

This months extra are these great little yoga hair ties.  Yoga hair ties differ from regular hair ties in that they wont leave a kink in your hair when you take it down.  I've been getting a lot of these lately in different subscription bags.  These come in a deep purple and a shimmery silver.  

This months product is Juleps Sweep Eyeshadow Palette in neutrals.  The packaging was a little deceptive as it looked much larger!  

Inside are five shades ranging from a light gold to a deep mahogany.  The shade from left to right are Tiramisue a nude satin, Glow a golden shimmer, Dusk a mauve satin, Toffee and bronze shimmer and Cocoa a chocolate brown with golden shimmer.  I love these colors since I have blue eyes.  Browns tend to set off blue eyes and make them pop!  I also highly suggest this palette if you are a darker skintone since these colors can match for a natural nude.

The shadows were soft and easily applied.  Fallout was not much of an issue so I'm truly pleased with these colors!

This months shades are Julep Misti and Julep Joelle.

Julep Misti is a smoky blue grey creme.  Coverage was fantastic and had a very glossy finish.  This is right in there with my favorite color so I'm happy to add this to my collection.

Julep Joelle is perfect for the holidays.  This is a silver holo glitter.  It wasn't quite full coverage with three coats, but it would make a gorgeous topper over any color.  Here you can see Joelle in natural indoor light.

In sunlight the holo effect is brighter and much more beautiful!

I really enjoyed my Julep Maven box this month!  I love the eyeshadows and all the polish shades.  I can't wait to see what January brings!
