BoxyCharm October Box - Unboxing


After last month's broken palette, leaking perfume & slow as molasses shipping, I was prepared for another BoxyCharm mishap this month. Scroll on to find out how October turned out for me.

bhCosmetics - Special Occasion palette


HauteLook had bh cosmetics on sale a few weeks ago. I needed a little bit more product in order to get free shipping, so I grabbed this Special Occasion palette for $12.

N@N HUGE Julep Giveaway - All Full-Sized - Worth $272!


Enter to win this SWEET $272 prize pack!


I'm cleaning out my polish drawer and setting aside colors I have multiples of or weren't for me.

These polishes have either never been used or have been used once to swatch for the blog. Primer & lip gloss have never been used. See below for exact colors!

Julep - October Box


This month I personalized my box and got the following for $24.99:

  • Julep Nail Color - Nancy (left)
  • Julep Nail Color - Ledi (right)
  • Night Shift Sleeping Mask

Here's a swatch of Ledi:

Here's a swatch of Nancy:

I haven't had a chance to try the mask yet. Ledi looked pretty much like black with perhaps a latex-like effect. Since I already have a black latex that looks much better than this, Ledi isn't interesting enough to keep. It will go in an upcoming giveaway. I haven't made up my mind about Nancy yet. I think I already have a sage metallic. We'll see...

I haven't been loving the color options with Julep for a long time, and have been leaning toward the makeup products instead of polishes. Then the makeup products end up sitting on my table unopened, or used once because they can't displace the other products I've come to love. I'll likely use up my next box credit (I had to prepay for three months of personalized boxes), and then cancel.

Are you a Julep subscriber? How have you been liking your boxes?
