My July Julep Maven Box

This month's Julep Maven theme was Into the Sea. "There’s just something about summertime that gets us in the mood to pay homage to the sea and its never-ending enchantment. The July Collection was inspired by the eternal allure of deep summer – lush, saturated nail colors that are far from your average, plus our latest lip essential: Lip Shade Sheer Lip Butter with SPF 30." I selected the Bombshell box. Here's what was inside:

- Lip Shade Sheer Lip Butter in Poppy $22
- 1 nail polish $14
- Extra: 1 nail polish, jelly candies
- Add-on: Ta Da! Quick Dry Drops $18

I was excited about the lip shades that I had to limit myself to one to see how they were before investing in other shades. Julep says "A luxuriously silky lip butter that glides on weightlessly to deliver a sheer wash of color plus the ultimate SPF 30 Broad Spectrum protection from harmful UVA/UVB rays." I guess I should have expected from the name that it would be sheer. I prefer highly pigmented shades so I think the packaging reminded me of a lipstick and therefore I thought I'd get more than just a balm tint. It's really gorgeous packaging and I like the smoothness so I'll keep it at my desk for a pop of color but it's not as pigmented as I'd prefer nor do I think I'll buy more.

I already received this highlighting powder and found it too dark so I passed it along. Think I'll be doing that again.

I've been waiting for these to come back in stock ever since I ran out. Looks like some new packaging.

Tomi is described as a "Bermuda blue holographic jelly." It went with the mermaid vibe of the box but not a blue I'm a fan of.

Another polish I got was Mickey - a pink geranium ghost iridescent. Actually like this color but it looks similar to a few others I already have.

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