October Julep Maven Box & Julep Leighton

Anne Klein, J. Renee, Les Nereides, Charlotte Russe


I just realized that I never posted about my October Julep Maven box. What makes it even worse is that I just got my November box today. Oh well, I just wasn’t very thrilled with this one. Here’s what it included.

The It Girl box contained Leighton (silver metallic), Jaime (blue creme), and an Age Defying Hand Brightener. The only color I really liked was Jaime, but I read on several blogs that it stained horribly. I may try this one for stamping, but I don’t want to deal with blue fingers/skin. The Hand Brightener went straight to my swap list…I didn’t even try it. I don’t need anything to block melanin in my skin…lol.

I did give Leighton a try though. I’ve said before that I don’t like silver foils/metallics on my complexion; Leighton was no exception. While it went on nicely, I was left with lots of brushstrokes. The formula was not as pigmented as the other Julep polishes I’ve tried, so I applied two coats.

Meh…the shade doesn’t really do anything for me. Yet another silver polish bites the dust. This one is heading to my swap list. My box wasn’t too great this time, but I’m looking forward to trying the three colors I got for November. If you’re interested in signing up to be a Julep Maven, here is my referral link.

How do you feel about silver foils/metallics?
