I noticed there was no September thread up yet. What are you ladies looking foward to this month?
Juleep needs to hire you to do their collections. I would not be skipping at all.I feel so jaded by Julep that all I feel like I can hope for is some shimmer/sparkle/glitter. I would love an autumn leaves collection where it's all various shades of green, brown, orange (even though I hate orange), etc., with a misty shimmery blue thrown in there to represent autumn rain (in this area, it rains a *lot* in the fall!) or a shimmery grayish white (SO MUCH FOG). Or! Oh! A shimmery top coat as an add-on to represent trying to *see* through all the fog!
(Also, note to Julep: STOP WITH THE FRAKKING RAINBOW COLLECTIONS. You don't need to go all Roy G. Biv EVERY SINGLE MONTH. It seems like the only months I get are when you do *not* do that. An It Girl box with three shades of blue or green? I can dig it and would grab it in an instant.)
Yuck thats so gross!I'm so over it too, and since I'm on a no buy this month, I won't be getting a September box. But, I want some awesome fall colors. I love your ideas @@meaganola I would totally love some awesome fall glitters to buy after the no buy is over. I actually wouldn't mind some cremes this month, as they did different finishes for August so I imagine we'll be seeing cremes again. A dark burgundy, dark green, dark red. I have Autumn that I can't wait to break out over something dark as soon as it starts getting cooler. Something fun like Autumn in various colors and some dark colors to put it over.
I'm just so hesitant to get a box, even if I wasn't on a no buy, because of all the packing issues they're having lately. Whether it's a fulfillment company, or their own employees, they need to change something. I saw someone had a chewed on pen in their box in the Julep Swap Facebook group...like someone packing it left their pen in the box. I mean come on.
Yes! Or even something like Martina, whew boy that was some full coverage! I wouldn't even mind a rainbow collection of glitters like that because glitter!I actually like cremes so I don't mind those too much, but I wish Julep would stop dupeing their own colors. I've been a maven for about a year and a half, and I skip most boxes, but whenever a new collection comes out I feel I have most of the colors already. I wish they would start making more full-coverage glitters in interesting colors. I think that's one of the things they do best, but they aren't really doing those anymore. I know last month had one, but it was gold, I want more fun colors, something like Carly or Lucky. Something like Autumn but full-coverage would be perfect for fall.
Because I live in Washington State, Julep used to be the one box I received quickly. This month I received my box at the end of last week. It had been sent from somewhere on the east coast, had been opened and then taped closed with strapping tape, and the bar code had black marker over part of it. I know that the package had been riffled, because the when the box had been resealed, one of the info cards had been mangled in the fold of the box. Not a good feeling to think someone has been touching my stuff. And, why? They didn't take anything, unless there was candy. Plus, they had my name backwards. I have belonged to Julep for two and a half years and haven't moved. What is up with that?I'm just so hesitant to get a box, even if I wasn't on a no buy, because of all the packing issues they're having lately.
