It seems I’m on fire these days with my blog posts! It’s nice to be getting back up to date :) What’s also really exciting is that I received my box today Feb 2 (despite a snow storm), and it was originally tracking to arrive on Feb 6. So this is a big win and a fabulous surprise!
So this month’s collection is called the afterglow collection, featuring their glow highlighting powder and illuminator.
My profile is boho glam, which would have contained Brandis (a teal), and Hazel (a duo-chrome purple/violet colour with bronze tinged chrome), and the highlighting powder. Since I recently upgraded to the customizable box, I kind of feel obligated to customize my box. Although Brandis is a really pretty teal, it looked pretty close to couple I already have. Hazel is pretty, and I’m thinking about adding it to my wish list.
I opted for the highlighting powder, the fan brush and Keiko (charred olive shimmer). I don’t have anything olive in my collection so I went with this.
Other colours I really like are Colton (described as black iris) and carla (a light pink creme).
Since I now prepay for my subscription in 3 month blocks, it’s hard redeem jules for the box (you have to call CS and they manually do something to help you), which is fine, I guess, but I think I’ll just use them for add ons.
I also selected the new illuminator product (illume eye brightener) in champagne. This product is meant to distract the eye from shadows. It’s not really a concealer though. I’m a little obsessed with eyes, so this was on my must-try list.
I also selected the other 2 metamorphic top coats released last month. I received Tilda (green tinged) in my January box for free, so I ordered Bjork and Tyra (blue tinged, and magenta tinged). Tyra had the most mixed reviews, but it’s the last one of the three so I went with it anyway.
Also this month, Julep gifted maven’s with hartleigh, a super cute topcoat with heart shapes and glitter in it. And as a gift for selecting 3 add-ons, I received Queen Anne ( a lilac confetti micro glitter released in August 2014), and Tatiana (a sparkly burnt orange from Sept 2013), nice but I have 2 already. Tatiana is pretty, but I don’t have a need for this many.
I’m overall really happy with my box, a little disappointed that Julep keeps giving Tatiana away as their gift for adding 3 products to your monthly box, as this is how I got my second one, and how I ended up with a third.
Either way, I feel like I made out like a bandit, because I only ended up paying $19.99 USD for this, since I redeemed Jules for my add-ons.

It’s a fabulous subscription service, they give you your first box free, and always have great deals available for their mavens!
