My October Julep Maven Box

This month's Julep Maven box was inspired by New York City, so how could I not select it?! "This month we’re all about polished looks that are impressively easy, the kind you need when you have people to see, places to go, and you’re spending so much time in taxis you epitomize get ready on-the-go. You know, like when you’re hearting NY." Here's what I received:

- Eyeshadow 101 Crème-to-Powder Eyeshadow Stick in Champagne Shimmer $18
- Add-Ons: Vanish Cuticle Softener & Remover & 2 polishes
- Extra: Candy corn! + Myriam

I ran out of this Cuticle Softener & Remover (well spilled half of it) so was glad I remembered to add more on. Definitely a favorite of Julep's.

Sigourney is described as a "black holographic stardust" or a thick glitter that finishes matte. It's really pretty but on the darker side so not very work appropriate.

Autumn was back from the vault but never tried it so thought I'd give it a try. It's described as a "burnt red/orange multidimensional glitter." It is a great fall glitter top coat that I may use in my Halloween mani.

"A groundbreaking blush with light-diffusing diamond powder & vitamin B6 to minimize complexion imperfections. Sound familiar? It should. It’s our Glow Pore-Minimizing Blush with a new name and an updated formula." Julep has been updating their beauty formulas a lot lately because honestly the first round of their beauty products were mostly fails for me. I think they rushed to release beauty products so glad they're doing more quality control now. I'm not a big blush girl since I already have rosy cheeks. This color is soft enough that it didn't feel too dramatic on me.

Wearing the eyeshadow pencil & blush
"A crème-to-powder shadow stick on top with a smudger on the other end. Expect huge color payoff and crease-proof, stay-all-day power." I saw a lot of girls sharing how this fell out! Knock on wood mine hasn't yet. This was a pretty color but it didn't blend super smoothly or last all day. I much prefer PUR's eye shadow as that lasts.

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