Julep Nail Color in Cynthia – Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Sheila – Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Nic – Value $14
Whenever November comes around I get very into glittery holiday-party nail polishes. I love the Cynthia polish!
Julep Nail Color in Aisha – Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Brielle – Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Alexandra – Value $14
I’m loving the colors Julep made this month – this trio looks like the perfect Autumn harvest collection!
Julep Nail Color in Winter – Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Chloe – Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Lola – Value $14
Julep Lip Gloss in Daring – Value $22
Julep Lip Gloss in Charming – Value $22
I like this lip gloss but I don’t love it. Here’s what I like: 1) It’s paraben and sulfate free, and each shade has the right amount of color and shine in my opinion.
The only thing I don’t love (and I’m extremely picky when it comes to lipgloss), is that it’s just a bit too sticky for my liking. It’s not super sticky by any means, so I’m going to use all the shades, but I probably won’t buy it again.
Julep Lip Gloss in Glowing – Value $22
Julep Lip Gloss in Posh – Value $22
The Glowing and Daring shades both have some very subtle glitter/shimmer.
Julep Blank Canvas Lip Primer – Value $22?
Julep Lip Gloss in Timeless – Value $22
I think Timeless may be my favorite shade in the bunch – I love combining lip stain with a shimmery clear lip gloss!
Each month Julep includes a little bonus surprise gift. (Past gifts have included: lip balm, hair pins, and candy). This serum sample didn’t feel up to the same level of the previous surprise gifts, but I’m very happy with this box – so no complaints!
Verdict: I love the colors of the nail polishes and lip glosses this month, so I’m very happy with my November Julep Maven Box. Which options did you get this month? What do you think of the lip gloss?
