Julep American Beauty July 2012

Hello…. I got my Julep Maven box in the mail this past Friday.  Yes, I decided to go with American Beauty this month.  It is such a gorgeous collection of colors.  I couldn’t resist.

First of all, look at how festive the box is.  The 4th of July is right around the corner and I am completely looking forward to it.  This box is perfect!  AND they included Fireballs, which happen to be one of my favorite candies of my youth.  

I love how they add little special touches to their packaging.  First off the paper with stars is adorable and then the red bow, but wow… the quote itself is really something special. 

Here are the 3 polishes that came in this box.

I did a post a week or two ago showing you guys the extra gift that came in this bag and I absolutely adore it!  Love it to pieces.  It is called America the Beautiful.  It is described as “a shiny red with royal blue glitter and sterling silver stars.”

Lynn is a beautiful “nude blush pearl.”

Yumi is a “pink opalescent multi-dimensional glitter.”

Peony is the first lipgloss I have gotten from Julep and I think it is basically Lynn in a gloss form.  It is descriped as a “nude blush creme lip vernis.”  You can see it swatched below. 

Here you can see Peony applied to my lips.  It is a gorgeous nude color.  This is all by itself on my lips.  It really adds a beautiful softness.  Have I mentioned before that I love nude lips?  ;)

So in honor of the 4th of July I actually did a manicure with American the Beautiful.  I also used Zoya Sooki for the french tip twist.  
Which Julep Maven box did you get?  Have you gotten a box at all yet?  You should definitely get your hands on America the Beautiful if you haven’t yet!
xoxo,
Laura

    Laura,

    Peony looks fab on you. I’m glad you got America the Beautiful. It is an amazing polish and you don’t need several coats to get the full sparkle effect.

    Which August box did you choose?
