My August Julep Maven Box

This month's Julep Maven theme was Montreal Muse. It was really hard to customize this box since I didn't really want the cheek blush. I don't typically wear blush and I wasn't really a fan of the colors. Here's what I ended up picking out:

When Pencil Met Gel Long Last Gel Eyeliner in Deep Raisin $16
Skip the Brush in Golden Guava $24
- Cally $14
- Add-Ons: Nail Decals - Black Chinle Print, Metal Marks Temporary Tattoos & Sophia
- Surprise Bonus: Lee

I'm not a big blush gal because I have naturally rosy cheeks so wasn't looking too forward to this product. I also didn't enjoy Maybelline's blush stick so was weary to try another one. Looking at the swatches, Golden Guava appeared to be a nice coral blush for fair skin. Thought it was a bit bright so I mixed it with Wet 'n Wild's "bronzer." It's nice but not a look I'd go for every day.

L: Julep Sophia // R: Essie's Butler Please

Sophia was the only color I wanted because it reminded me of Essie's Mezmerised which recently I had to dump because it dried up on me. Sidenote: Kim got too impatient and ended up purchasing Butler Please before Sophia arrived. It is basically the same as the 2 Essie colors lol even though I think Butler Please more of a creme finish rather than shiny finish like Sophia.

Cally is not my cup of tea so let me know if you'd like it. Lee (pictured above) was my surprise item for having three add-ons. Julep described it as a "spitfire red crème" (not sure what a spitfire is) but it's a reddish pink to me. I like it because it's partly my name - KimberLEE (and I've always thought Lee was a cool name).

What did you receive in your Julep Maven box this month?
