Lady in Red – Matte Crimson Lip Color

Satin Doll – Poppy Lip Sheer

Tea for Two – Nude Shimmer Lip Sheer

I’m not a big lipstick person, so I was happy to see that two of these lip sticks are really more like lip balms – sheer with some color.

Bonus Item – Julep Hair Clips – Value $5

 Julep Nail Color in Alice – Value $14

 Julep Nail Color in Millie – Value $14

I love the shimmer in the Alice polish – I think I’ll be using it next!

Verdict: I think Julep is getting better and better every month – plus I love that they are expanding their beauty line! I hope they include their DD Cream as an add-on option next month! What did you think of this month’s box?

  1. Thank you so much for the Coupon Code! I was debating whether to sign up for Julep Maven Monthly Subscription. I’m very happy to get the preview box for free and can’t wait for the coming months. Yay!

  2. I got the upgrade box and got no hair clips. Very annoyed.

  3. 🙂 just got mine today and love the colors. Your reviews are so helpful. Thank you for doing them.

    Do you know if as a full upgrade I should have gotten the clips too? This is only my second monthly box (but also second upgrade!) So I’m unsure about it.

  4. I got the modern beauty box this month. I really like the lipsticks, especially the poppy one. The mascara is nice too, it goes on really thin so its easy to build up without any clumps. The lip scrub has a really sweet smell to it but i like it overall so far. I’m still waiting on my addon nail colors which are Alice,Coco and Paris.

  5. I skipped this month because I wasn’t super into the colors and I don’t wear lipstick but omg those hair clips! I want them so much!!

  6. I got the same box as you. I like the Alice as well but I really got it because I bought a coat the same color as Millie. The only thing I don’t understand, for my pin I got three white ones and only one pinkish hair pin.

  7. OMG – I’m so jealous. I would love lipstick 🙁

  8. I did an upgrade for May and ordered the entire set. I can’t wait to get it. I’m so impressed with Julep lately. So addictive though.

  9. I really loved this box! I was a bit leery of the coral lip color–so. very. orange! in the tube–but it’s quickly become my favorite. There’s a promo going on for Mavens through today that’s buy two for the price of one–I’m getting the Clara and Paris nail colors (which are in teh 1920s themed line).

  10. No! I canceled my subscription last month! So the trio lippies came with the May box?! *weeps*
