After deciding to skip for the month of February because I just was not into the collection I really splurged on March's Julep Maven Box which was the release of a new finish, the soft focus finish. Julep also offered a new Mystery Box option which I (of course) had to try out. Here's what I got:
I have completely mixed feelings about my box this month. I was not at all pleased with the beauty mystery box as it included NONE of the new beauty items introduced this month. For the March collection, Julep introduced a line of six lipsticks, an invisible lip liner, a liquid eyeliner pen, and an eye makeup remover pen so you can understand my disappointment when not one of these items was included in the featured beauty mystery box. The items in this box more closely mirror what is included in monthly mystery boxes where you know you may be getting products from past lines. I did not think a Maven box would include all past line items. I was not necessarily expecting all new items but it would have been nice to have at least one beauty item that was released that month. I will probably be gifting most if not all of these items. I do love the Gel Eye Gliders from Julep, just not really interested in Olive right now. Moving on to the brighter spot of March...
I decided to splurge on add-ons this month since I liked the polish offerings and wanted to try the beauty mystery as my main box. The new soft focus finish is a semi-matte that I was very excited to try. Overall I like the colors I chose to add-on and with the disappointment from my beauty mystery box I am happy I did not pass up on getting some polish. I do wish they would stop giving out Francis though.
