Julep Maven - May 2013

The Jazz Collection

Click on photo to enlarge

My May Julep Maven Box finally arrived.  It was an anxious wait since the USPS tracking still shows that it has not been shipped!  This is the first time I upgraded my box to include all five collections:  Bombshell, Classic with a Twist, It Girl, Boho Glam & American Beauty.  Since I absolutely love the fashion from the twenties, I just had to have this collection!  

Included in this collection are the following products:
  1. New York Jazz Trio - lip colors inspired by the roaring twenties:  Tea for Two, Satin Doll, Lady in Red
  2. Zelda - Bombshell Collection:  pink champagne metallic
  3. Zora - Classic with a Twist:  frosted pink pearl
  4. Paris - It Girl:  multidimensional holographic glitter top coat
  5. Clara - It Girl:  opaque peach creme
  6. Alice - Boho Glam:  antique lilac shimmer
  7. Gabrielle - Bombshell:  smoky mulberry creme
  8. Millie - Boho Glam:  vintage indigo creme
  9. Myrtle - Classic with a Twist:  flapper red creme
  10. Coco - It Girl:  oxblood creme
  11. Paris Jazz Trio - lip colors:  Charleston, Sweet Lorraine, Lady in Red
  12. American Beauty - Mascara 
  13. Sugar Smooch Lip Scrub

Zelda, Zora, Paris, Clara, Alice, Gabrielle, Millie, Myrtle, Coco

Swatches of the nail polishes are above, all of them have two coats with Out the Door top coat on top.  All of the polishes require two coats except Zora which requires three coats and Paris only needs one if you are using it as a top coat.  I think I will be using one coat of Paris over Zora or Clara.  Zora, Clara & Paris remind me of OPI's The Oz Collection, which you can see here and here.  Alice, Gabrielle & Millie would look great as a gradient manicure.  Millie is one particularly stinky lady!  Comment below if yours is smelly too.  Millie & Myrtle would look good together, they look patriotic together.  Myrtle would look great with the matching lip color Lady in Red. Nothing looks better than matching your lip color to your nails, well that is if it's an appropriate lip color certainly not blue!  The lip colors are all sheer except for Lady in Red.  The lip scrub smells so yummy like fudge. To hear more about the lip colors & the lip scrub, watch this video:

Julep has a great point system which I find is more generous than other companies.  For this purchase I received 750 points and it only take 750 points for a free nail polish!  If you purchase the smaller boxes they give you 300 points, so in three months you would have enough points for a free polish.  If you refer someone and they make a purchase you will receive 1000 points.  It takes 2,000 points for a free monthly box.  I don't have patience for that since I don't purchase a box every month, so I use my points as soon as I have enough for a free polish.  I'm waiting on my add on polish, Etta, which I used my referral points on.  If you would like to try out this fun, pretty monthly subscription, please use my link here so that I get points.

And I'm sure this collection reminds you of the upcoming movie, The Great Gasby, which I can not wait to see! So before you leave, watch the trailer:
