You guys, I have big news. I didn't upgrade my Julep box this month. I am sure you are all very proud.
The products in this month's box were kind of underwhelming (I don't need an overly expensive lip balm, guys) and, although the nail polishes were pretty, bright colors, I wasn't exactly drooling on my keyboard over them. I opted instead to pick up the Boho Glam box.
For March, Julep released new shades of their lip glosses. They sent out the last batch in November, and I was pleasantly surprised by their quality. I actually probably would have upgraded my box if they had had an option that contained all the new glosses... but they didn't, and I didn't want to individually add on every color. Happily, though, they did have some extra customization options: the boxes that contained lip glosses allowed you to choose which gloss you received.
I did get an 'extra' this month: a cotton-candy-flavored candy stick. I had kind of assumed that Julep had just stopped adding the little bonus items, since I haven't been receiving them, but it's possible that they're just not including them in the upgraded boxes, which would be an awfully strange choice.
Boho Glam contained Elisa, a cool, pastel lilac with faintest hint of shimmer, and Harriet, a medium coral cream. Both colors are opaque in about two coats.
I was really happy with the two colors. I also really like them together-- I'm a big fan of mixing cool and warm-toned colors and these go together really nicely.
I chose to get the lipgloss in the shade "Enchanted". It was exactly what I was expecting, since I've tried Julep lip glosses before. It's wearable, medium-ly sheer, and just a tiny bit sticky.
Enchanted is a watermelon-y coral color.
Here's how it looks on my lips:
Overall, I'm relatively happy. I'm rarely really disappointed in Julep because, at this point, I usually have a pretty damn good idea about what I'm going to be getting. I like it, and I'll definitely wear this stuff. I wish this box had a new product to get excited about or colors that would blow me away. It didn't. But, hey, at least it's solid.
