Julep October “Classic with a Twist” Box Swatches

Happy Fall everyone! October is finally here (and so is my Classic with a Twist box from Julep!)

My box included:

Winona – a Buff greige crème ($14)

Anisa – a Deep burgundy crème ($14)

Kajal Eye Liner & Sharpener – 2 sided in Shimmering Brown/Carbon Black ($22)

I also ADDED on:

Valerie – a Teal with iridescent microglitter ($14)

I used 750 of my Jules  to get my add-on for free so this box ended up costing me $19.99!  Here are the swatches and my quick thoughts on them…

Winona’s formula is somewhat thick and looks decent with just 1 coat. The color is kind of blah by itself…but is looks really nice paired with other rich colors (like Anisa!) or used as a base for fall nail art.

I REALLY love Anisa (it is my favorite from the box) It’s a thin formula and very easy to get thin even coats (i did 2 here) I love it by itself, but i paired it with something else just to see and i like that too =)

I had high hopes for Valerie (thats why I added it on) but my expectations fell short…It’s a great formula, nice and thin and easy to spread. However, the color is MUCH darker than my idea of teal, it looks like a dark forest green and the shimmer is MUCH LESS noticeable compared to the swatches on Julep’s website… oh well, can’t win em’ all. (I used Adele  as a top coat, and do love the way it looks with it!)

Swatches of the Eye Liner, I haven’t used it on my eyes yet so i’m not sure about that aspect yet…

I would like to know, do you get Juelp Boxes? If so, what did you get this month?

  1. I am disappointed with Winona. It is so in style but looks awful with my skin tone. So I had to order… Alaina I think its called. It’s like winona but more purple.
    I got modern beauty box with ciara, winona, and valerie. Valeria on me didn’t look like their swatches either. I still liked it tho.
    I loved the mask and i love the brown eyeliner
