Julep Maven Box #14: September 2012 Classic With A Twist (Trina Turk Fall 2012)
|September 10, 2012||Posted by peach_ under Julep Maven|
If you’ve been subscribed to Julep Maven for several months now (or since the beginning!), the boxes you’ve been receiving have most likely been adding up to a nice Julep rainbow. Add to this other brands of polishes in your stash, it means I’m getting a little pickier as to which colors deserve a space in my collection. (No shame if you have your favorite colors in every tint of undertone. We understand.)
As tempting as it was to choose the bold green and blue of Boho Glam Box or Bombshell Box for that beautiful robin blue, I picked Classic with a Twist for colors I hadn’t yet owned from Julep.
Included in the September 2012 Classic with a Twist Trina Turk Box (descriptions from Julep):
- Sophie – chic truffle mushroom crème (reg. $14)
- Brandt – opaque off-black crème (reg. $14)
- Julep American Beauty Volumizing Mascara in Jet Black – lash growth enhancement ingredients and micro-fiber applicator separates, conditions, and plumps individual lashes for a thick and gorgeous finish. (reg. $24)
Mascara? That’s a first! We first saw Julep include non-nail related products last year with lip glosses, and they’ve since then created argan oil (which I’ve been forgetting to try), and now mascara. I do wish they’d stick to mani/pedi products like their lovely cuticle oil and hand cream with sunscreen, but I’ll give this a shot.
I like that these bottles have the Trina Turk logo on the caps. Nice touch without changing the overall look.
I also noticed that I seemed to have gotten a new bottle design as well. Sophie has the new glass bottle and Brandt came in the same bottle as always. Julep Nail Vernis is now Julep Nail Color Vernis à Ongles. Well, excusez-moi!
Flip over the bottle, and you no longer see directions. Just their info, updated year, and more French. Intéressant, non?
But back to the box. I love the included magnet with an illustration by blondelasagna. (I love it more that her signature is her Twitter handle!) I also enjoy reading the quotes in the box every month, this time by Yves Saint Laurent.
I’m kinda-sorta curious why the illustration and quote aren’t by Trina Turk since this is a Trina Turk collaboration…but c’est la vie!
