July Maven Box!!

I sincerely hope you guys caught this month's Maven box. How FUN was this one? Matching lip gloss AND America The Beautiful. Stunning! 

I haven't ever done a makeup review, and to be honest, I don't wear makeup on a daily basis so bear with me on this one. 

First up, the one we've all been waiting for, AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL!

There you have it! America the Beautiful.
Thoughts on this one: I got one of the wonky brushes, so it was hard to apply in addition to it being REALLY thick. It was also extremely gritty as most super glittery polishes are. A coat of Gelous and two of Seche to make this one smooth.

The white one you see here is Kate, which is a soft white pearl. It is so much like several other colors I have. Application on this one was okay, but again, weird brush.  I layered it with Kleancolor's Bluebell to add some pop. 

Here's Chelsea, a purple multi-glitter with magenta, teal, silver and hints of pink. Also really gritty and holy tip wear, batman. Look at the middle finger, this is one day of wear. Brace yourselves for the lip gloss pictures.

  I took pictures first, in artificial incandescent light, then in sunlight. You can see that it can be either light or darker depending on how much you layer it and how bright the lighting is.  The color is called Zinnia.  To me it was sticky, but all lip glosses are. I prefer a colored chap-stick like Tarte.

So, what do you think about Julep's branching out this month? I'm pleasantly surprised.
