The September Collection was called “The Art Walk Collection”. Note about my review, I included swatches this month. Please excuse my bad manicure, as I did a quick swatch of each color, and not a full manicure.
Julepâ€™s September Collection contains a new product, a lip crayon. The lip line is call Plush Pout and it is described as a â€œfull-coverage lip crayon with a moisturizing treatment core in the middleâ€.
The quote in this month’s box is “Creativity Takes Courage” – Henri Matisse
Plush Pout Lip Crayon in Cardinal: Rich, full-coverage red creme color with a moisturizing treatment core
Plush Pout Lip Crayon in Magenta: Rich, full-coverage plum creme color with a moisturizing treatment core
Here are the swatches of the crayons. I was impressed with the how moisturizing, and pigmented each color was. They felt great on my lips and had lasted a good long time.
Erin (Boho Glam): Oyster grey crÃ¨me
I must admit, I didn’t love this color when I first saw it, but I got it, because it has my name. Now that I have seen it in person, I like it more. I think ti would look best as nail art on a brighter color.
Lupita (Classic with a Twist): Ripe rhubarb crÃ¨me
Ana (Bombshell): White jagged glitter top coat
I am in love with Lupida. It is a beautiful rhubarb color and it has a great formula. Ana doesn’t show up really on it’s own, but looks nice on Lupida.
Mary Lee (Boho Glam): Oxblood satin
This is like a plum/brown color and is very nice for fall.
Kirby (Bombshell): Silver jagged glitter top coat
This is a pretty glittery polish, but I think it need a bright base under it.
Final Thought: This was a nice month and I liked all the colors I picked. I do think this month, the colors were a bit all over the place. Lupida is my favorite polish from this month. I was pleased with the formula on all the polishes. The polish went on very easily and I got a good look with only one coat. There is a brand new Julep Maven Limited Edition box, and you can get it FREE. Just click HERE and use the code FREEFALL. As a maven you get fresh new polish colors and top quality beauty products each month, and best of all, it’s totally customizable. I love my Maven Subscription. You get fabulous nail colors and beauty products each month.
