Julep Maven Review & Free Box Code – August 2015

This box included an info card detailing their newest beauty product – the creme-to-powder blush stick.
Julep Nail Color in Penny – Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Ann – Value $14
I’m happy with both of these shades (they’re the Classic with a Twist colors for this month). The Penny shade is a copper/bronze shimmery metallic – I like that it isn’t a straight up copper color like the name might suggest.
This Ann color has a very subtle microshimmer mixed in with the creme formula – Julep refers to it as a “ghost shimmer creme.”
Skip the Brush Creme-to-Powder Blush Stick in Moonlit Sand – Value $24
Maybe it is the part of me that doesn’t want to ever grow up, but I always seem to like makeup products that are basically big crayons!
This blush is really easy to apply, and the color I picked is somewhat subtle, so I don’t have to worry about overdoing it. It’s also pretty easy to blend. Here is a swatch:
This formula has some shimmer in it, so it catches the light. I’ll probably use this as a brow bone highlighter too.
This month’s bonus item is a set of mini flash tattoos. I love that these are small enough that you can use them on nails. (They work both on skin or nails). Maybe I’ve finally found a version of flash tattoos I’ll wear!
And this box included a coupon for 30% off your next order at Julep.com.
Verdict: I’m happy with my box picks this month. I really like the shade of the blush stick I picked out, and now I’m thinking about trying more shades! What did you pick from Julep for August? Do you like the creme-to-powder stick?
