May Julep Maven – Flapper Style!

Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure

Wow!! This one is a DO NOT MISS MONTH! Each of the regular (i.e., including nail polish) boxes comes with Lady in Red Matte Crimson lip color and two lip sheers (except, of course, It Girl, which is only nail polish… seems a little confusing, but I promise it isn’t!). For Current Mavens go here to select your May Maven box!

May Julep Maven: Set the Stage

This month’s Julep Maven boxes are inspired by the roaring twenties and I have to say I love the style and the colors. I love how Julep did a complete 180 from last month, which I loved so much too! (here’s the link to April Maven and yes… because of vacay I never did any more pictures up, maybe I’ll do a photo dump?).

This month’s add-on is Etta, an Art Deco peridot metallic. It’s very pretty and I think it will go with (hopefully artificially) more tan skin during the summer.

I’m not crazy about It Girl’s glitter – probably because they don’t show it on top of something. Is it just me, or are Julep’s swatch pictures always super unflattering?Screen Shot 2013-04-20 at 9.22.15 AM

Classic With a Twist is perfect for those needing classic only colors. Not for moi!Screen Shot 2013-04-20 at 9.22.09 AM

I love the Gabrielle mulberry color in Bombshell, but… The champagne would look terrible on me. I am definitely putting Gabrielle as an add-on.Screen Shot 2013-04-20 at 9.22.03 AM

I have said before that I have ZERO desire to get a polish-free box from Julep. The American Beauty box is actually a pretty decent value, but really? I just don’t get it.Screen Shot 2013-04-20 at 9.21.47 AM

Boho Glam is my pick this month! Duh. I’m crazy about purple. I LOVE the Millie Indigo Creme. But I would rather have the OTHER lip trio. Sigh. Screen Shot 2013-04-20 at 9.21.54 AM

Don’t forget to check out the add-ons. There’s even a special Mother’s Day set this month!

Yikes, by the time I got done I totally changed my mind. I’m getting the Bombshell and adding on the Millie. I don’t look good in orangey colors. I’m a classic jewel tone friendly skin tone.

Okay, seriously, become a Maven! Your first box is SUPER cheap and you can skip your box every month until you find one you like! Julep is one of my just for me (and the kids! I love painting their nails!) favorites!!
