My August Julep Maven Box

This month's Julep Maven box was Lavish Strokes. "Dare to channel your artsy side with lush, saturated hues in a textural chrome finish that exudes end-of-summer decadence." They also debuted a new product that I was excited to try. Here's what I received:

- 2 nail polishes $14/ea
- Cushion Complexion 5-in-1 Skin Perfector with Turmeric - 110 Porcelain $30
- Bonus: 1 nail polish

I added on these items as they're classic faves and needed to re-up.

Jaydra is described as a "Tuscan rose sheer holographic." This is a sheer polish but thankfully layers nicely.

Ange is described "tidepool blue crème." This was my bonus item since I added 3 items. It dries kind of matte but seems like a great fall color.

Wilma surprised as "mojave sunrise gold chrome" which is a bit elaborate lol. It's like a rose gold looking polish in certain lighting. My favorite of all the three that I decided to wear it for the week. Unfortunately it chipped in a day.

"Our multitasking Cushion Complexion makes it easy with a seamless, semi-matte finish that looks like your skin, but better. Available in 18 true-to-you shades, this versatile formula conceals, corrects, illuminates, blurs, and brightens (a long-term benefit of Turmeric Extract)." Didn't know turmeric was a trend in beauty items. I like taking it in pill form lol. It's great that it comes in 18 different shades. I chose the 2nd to palest shade so that was a first. It ended up being a little too yellowish for my skintone. It glides on really smooth and I like the applicator. It does have a bit of a smell. I also felt it was a bit on the sheer side. I have dark circles so I need a heavy duty concealer. I'll keep playing with it as it shows promise.

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