I’ve been stalking my mailbox for the July Julep Maven collection and happily, it arrived today. I know some people got theirs on Saturday and I was having box envy ;).
Julep ships via USPS Priority Mail and their boxes arrive fast! It only took 3 days for my box to get from Julep in WA to me in MI! So fast!
Unlike last month where I just wasn’t sure what collection I wanted to get because I liked it a few in each and went for the full collection just to get the ones I really liked, I KNEW right away this month that the full collection was for me. I couldn’t resist this one.
The July Julep Maven theme is “California Coast” and might just be one of my favorite collections ever! The card reminds me of one of my favorite shows ever, Laguna Beach.
~Karen (Boho Glam) ($14 / $11.20): Karen is a Peach Bellini Frost and I am in love. I’d describe it as more of a glittery / shimmery polish than a frost, maybe it’s a frost? It does mind me of a peach cocktail though! Love this!
~Faye (Boho Glam) ($14 / $11.20): Faye is a Liquid Bronze Shimmer and might be my least favorite color in the collection. It’s not bad, but I also don’t think I have ever had the urge to paint my nails bronze? Maybe I will one day though? And I’ll be ready!
~Joanna (Bombshell) ($14 / $11.20): Joanna is a Lilac Frost and seems a little more spring’ish than California Coastal, but I do love it.
~Blakely (Bombshell) ($14 / $11.20): Blakely is a Purple and Green Molten and has a nice shimmer to it. It’s kind of reminds me of outer space. Has Julep ever done a Galactic or a Outer Space collection? Because I think that would be so fun!
~Adele (Bombshell) ($14 / $11.20): Adele is a Golden Reflective Top Coat. This was a bonus polish for upgrading to the full collection and was one of the reasons I upgraded. I don’t know what I will layer this with first, but I can’t wait to figure it out. I’m thinking maybe the navy polish that’s in here? That would be fun!
~Alaina (Classic with a Twist) ($14 / $11.20): Alaina is a Driftwood Taupe Crème and while very pretty, isn’t really for me. If I had a corporate job I would totally be into this, but I don’t so I like to go crazy with my polish!
~Cassie (Classic with a Twist) ($14 / $11.20): Cassie is a Soft Coral Sheer and I think it’s gorgeous. It’s not to wild, but it’s also not to tame either. This is one of my favorites in this box.
~Nadia (It Girl) ($14 / $11.20): Nadia is a Sun Kissed Golden Frost and I think it’s now the 3rd yellow Julep polish I own! What I need to do with all this yellow is get creative and do polka dots or something to make me use the yellow more, but I just don’t think I am ready for that.
~Angela (It Girl) ($14 / $11.20): Angela is a Deep Sea Blue Molten and is another one of my favorites in here. It’s so pretty and seems kind of mermaid like to me.
~Tracy (It Girl) ($14 / $11.20): Tracy is a Sparkly Ocean Blue Sea Salt is probably my favorite favorite polish in the box! I love the sea salt finish and was SO excited to see another one in this box! I’m hoping that eventually they come up with a light green / acqu sea salt finish. Like a sea glass kind of color. A girl can dream!
~Sea Salt Texture Spray ($22 / $16.99): I love beach hair, but yeah, I’m not going to be anywhere near the ocean soon. My hair is a complete mess right now, but I tried it out anyway and it totally works. It even gave my flat straight hair some fun waves and a volume boost! I already want more.
~Beach Tonic Dry Body Oil ($23 / $18.40): This smells amazing and really isn’t greasy at all. And it really does absorb quickly which I totally was worried about. I cannot stand when lotions and body oils don’t absorb and end up leaving marks on your clothes. That’s so annoying. Oh and yeah, I want more of this too!
~Julep Green Tea Facial Blotting Papers ($10): These aren’t online yet, but I am estimating them at $10. There are 40 sheets, so that seems fair. I love blotting papers, so these will totally get used.
All totaled, the July Julep California Coast Collection had a value of $195 (or $157.39) if you get Maven pricing)! Not too bad considering that the entire collection only cost me $55 (the Julep Maven is $19.99/month and it was an additional $35 to upgrade to the FULL collection). I love upgrading but should seriously consider NOT upgrading for a few months so I can work through my stash. We all know that’s not going to happen though ;).
