Skip the Brush – Peony Pink
I’ve had trouble with blush sticks before (think of a clown), so I was a little leery when I saw this stick was the featured beauty product for August.
I haven’t had much time for experimentation in the last few days, but I have tried the blush once.
It had the opposite pigmentation effect than the last one I tried. I couldn’t seem to get enough color on my cheeks. I think part of the problem was that I wasn’t sure exactly how hard to press the blush into my face.
I think with a little practice I will learn to love this product!
What little color I did manage to get was very pretty. The peony shade is a natural pink that’s perfect for me!
Feels Like Velvet – Champagne & Caviar – Add On
I really liked the eye shadows that I got in my May Maven box, so I picked up another this month.
This photo makes the shadows look a lot more orangey than they are in real life. I experimented with different lighting and the pictures all came out the same. 🙁
In reality, the left shadow is a dusty pink and the right is a chocolate brown. They’re very pretty and natural. Right up my alley!
Ann – Classic with a Twist – Passion Punch Ghost Shimmer Crème
I love this polish color! It’s bright and fun!
I haven’t been able to use it yet, but I can’t wait to give it a try! It’s going to be very pretty!
Penny – Classic with a Twist – Burnished Bronze Metallic
I’ve gotten quite a few metallic polishes since subscribing to Julep last year. They’ve all been so pretty!
I think this one might be a touch too bronze for me though. I don’t think it’s going to look good with my skin tone, but I’ll give it a try anyway!
Blush Brush – Add On
I’ve been wanting this brush for several months now. I have quite a few other Julep makeup brushes, and they are fantastic!
I would choose the month they debut a brushless blush to buy a blush brush! Delightfully ironic!
Julep debuted their Brave Pretty campaign this month.
I think it’s a great campaign, but I didn’t do my part! Whoopsie!
I was supposed to fill out that little white card and share it on social media. Maybe I’ll do it later in the month!
Julep sent out a little freebie this month! Metallic temporary tattoos. Fun fun!
Julep also included their monthly coupon!
I really like my box this month! I think the products are great, and I can’t wait to use them some more!
