Happy Monday everyone! I am spending the day at home with the kids before getting back into our crazy daily routine, but I wanted to get this out since I’m already a month late. This may be my last Julep box for a long time, as our personal Operation: Buy a Home started yesterday which means a spending freeze for stuff like this, and I’m okay with that.
Anyway, on to the box; I went with the Modern Beauty box which included Fluid Eye Glider, Get In Line Invisible Lip Liner and Light On Your Lips – Chit Chat, and I added on the Soft Focus Trio, Ming (the darker purple polish above) and CTRL + Z Eye Makeup Eraser. I also received a bonus for adding on 3 items which is the darker green polish.
Soft Focus Trio
It doesn’t look like they are selling this as a set now, but from left to right:
I have used all 3 in manicures since getting them… LuLu and Ali both applied beautifully – Janet was goopy and hard to put on which was unfortunate!
CTRL-Z Makeup Eraser
I have used an eraser by ELF in the past, but I like this one better – mostly just because the tip is black and I can’t see the makeup on it. It is a morning saver when I mess up my eyeliner (so like… every morning.)
Light on your Lips – Chit Chat
This full-coverage sunset rose crème lipstick floats on and feels totally weightless. The ultra moisturizing formula keeps lips hydrated and happy.
I was ready to hate this. The price made my jaw drop. $22.00 USD (so $27 CAD with the dollar right now) for 0.12 oz. That’s almost what MAC charges for their Ultimate Lipstick… and then I put it on. It’s so creamy, and so smooth. The colour is beautiful and the cap attaches magnetically which is fantastic. I won’t be purchasing any more of these though because the price is quite steep – but if they are ever on sale I might grab another shade.
Get in Line Invisible Lip Liner
A clear, waterproof lip liner that works with any lip color or gloss.
I broke the tip the first time I tried to take the cap off (which I ended up doing with my teeth… ouch) and I haven’t been bothered to sharpen and test it…
Fluid Eye Glider
A jet black eyeliner pen with a no-fray precision felt tip that makes it easy to create thin or thick lines.
I like how short the felt tip is, it makes it easy to apply precisely. It did bleed a bit on my arm when I swatched it but I haven’t had that issue on my eyes.
Overall I’m really happy with the box, and if it’s my last one then I’m going out on a Julep high!
