The Big Reveal: January 2013 Julep Maven Bombshell Box

My January 2013 Julep Maven (learn more about Julep here) Bombshell Box came in yesterday.  This box featured shades from the Nudes and Neon collections and was super bright and fun – just what I need at this time of year.  This box featured two beautiful polishes, Ava and Better, as well as Julep’s Hand and Cuticle Stick, swatch me stickers, and a few brightly coloured Twistbands.  The swatch me stickers are intriguing – swipe your polish on it and stick it on top of the bottle so that you can see what the shade actually looks like – it will definitely make picking out colours easier, but I’m not sure if I want to see these on all of my bottles.

I really like the Hand and Cuticle stick – it’s like a giant lip balm for your hands.  I found it to be really lightweight and didn’t leave behind a greasy residue.  My hands and cuticles felt really soft after using this, and it has a really nice, lemon-y scent.

The colours that I received this month were Bette (electric neon purple creme) and Ava (ballet slipper pink frost).  They are both really pretty, but I have to say I was instantly in love with Bette when I opened this month’s box.  The purple is so electric, and I can’t wait to try it out.
