August in October!

So Julep's shipping is terrible. Their nail polish is wonderful. It leaves me in a dilemma as a new Maven. So far, I am sticking it out, but that could change if it doesn't improve.

With that note, it should make sense that I am just now reviewing my Julep August box, since I received it in September.

August's theme was Wanderlust, very global and rich colors.

Nice presentation, love  love love the glittery gold tissue paper. Fit the theme very well.

Well, at least my delayed box had one....

I can always find stuff to add on, it's a sickness really. My freebie was the Blank Canvas Mattifiying Eye Primer. Julep doesn't note what your freebie is, but since I know it didn't order this, I made an educated guess. It can be confusing on months you get nail polish and forget what you ordered. (I can't be the only one who does that *crosses fingers*)

Julep says

"Prime for success

What it is:
A reparative eye primer that creates a smooth, flawless base for long-lasting eye looks.

What it does:
Light-diffusing diamond powder minimizes shine and lid discoloration.
Julep's exclusive Power Cell Complex™ blends the benefits of three age-defying, skin-boosting, ultra-hydrating ingredients:
Rosehip seed oil delivers essential nutrients to soothe and repair.
Malvaceae Lipid Extract™ improves barrier function so skin retains moisture.
Green coffee bean oil invigorates skin & promotes cell turnover."


The primer has a nice finish, and is good for camouflaging veins and other eyelid discolorations. It doesn't feel too tacky, and is very neutral so the color of your shadows won't be affected. 

Blended. Almost imperceptible.
