I’ve been skipping my monthly Julep Maven subscription lately, but a few months ago they launched It’s Whipped Matte Lip Mousse and I knew I needed to try them. I went with XOXO, a Femme Fuchsia Matte and Swoon, a Heathered Wine Matte.
A weightless matte lip color that lasts all day and never feels dry. A super-pigmented formula provides saturated color for up to 12 hours of comfortable wear.
Not sure if it’s the flu, or just a really bad cold… but something wicked is tearing its way through our house. Poor Cordelia has been hit the hardest and went from having a bit of a cough and a slight fever on Friday, to spending all day yesterday cuddled up on me while she tried to sleep, and all last night in our bed because her ‘cough is owies’. Is winter over yet?
I wanted a fun manicure this week, but needed something that would dry very quick because she was only sleeping for 15-20 minutes at a time if she wasn’t on me. Thankfully, Julep Zelda is a very quick-to-dry polish (by the time I finish painting, they are almost dry), and only requires 2 coats for full coverage, and the KBShimmer Lace Water Slide Decals are super easy to apply, even if in the middle of applying a feverish toddler climbs in to your lap.
I forgot to add it to my resolutions post, but I told myself that I was going to start painting my nails again. I easily have over 200 polishes that have been sitting completely neglected, and one that I was really excited to try was Julep Coretta. I ran out of my favourite top coat, normally I would have just re-ordered it but I am trying to use what I have so I opened up my unused bottle of Julep Freedom Polymer Top Coat instead.
Julep Coretta Color Description: Gold-Capped Diamond Birthstone. Full-Coverage Holographic Microglitter with real diamond dust for extra sparkle.
I don’t know why I applied a coat of C&E Petal Pink before Julep Coretta, it doesn’t show through at all… and I probably should have instead gone with a fun colour that would – but it’s my first manicure in months and it reminds me of glittery snow (it’s that ‘real diamond dust’ sparkle!) so it works.
