Julep Maven: Month 1 – Julep Eva Swatch, Julep Sienna Swatch

I recently signed up to become a Julep Maven because they had a special where it was just 1 penny for the first month and $19.99 for every month thereafter (I used coupon code “PENNY”.) I started by taking the Julep Maven Quiz, and my results deemed me a Bombshell. Two days after signing up, I received my shipping notification, and less than a week after I signed up, my package arrived.

First, the packaging:



The box included a small reusable bag, Julep’s The Best Pedi Creme Ever, Julep Sienna nail polish, and Julep Eva nail polish. The Pedi Creme went on well and smell nicely, but I haven’t yet tried in on my feet. For folks who are interested in the ingredients list, I included a picture of it below.



Now, let’s be real. I only signed up for the nail polish, so on to the swatches. Julep’s Eva is a raspberry creme polish that is quite similar to Confetti’s Not My Mother’s Pink, but I wouldn’t call it a dupe.



The formula is absolutely divine, and it dried quickly as well. More importantly, it reached opacity in two coats. I sort of see what the fuss is about with expensive polishes, but I don’t think that’ll dissuade me from purchasing and swatching more accessible drugstore brands.





Also included in this month’s Bombshell was Julep’s Sienna, a beautiful gold foil. I don’t know what the right term is, but I would say that the gold is more silvery than it is brassy or yellowy. It’s so, so beautiful, and I typically don’t care for foils!




I also used two coats for this polish and really like the color, despite my previous aversion to foils.



After seeing these two colors combined, I’m sure that I’m going to do an Effie Trinket inspired manicure using these two colors. Are you a Julep Maven? If so, are you happy with the service and selection?
