JULEP Maven | July 2012

I had such a difficult time choosing which Maven style to go with this month.  
I wanted every Maven box!

My typical style is Classic with a Twist (July 2012 box):

I love pink anything, but I ended up choosing the July 2012 Boho Glam box, because I think coral shades look best on my skin tone...especially in the summer.

This is the box I received this month:

I also received a free polish called America, in celebration of 4th of July:

Canadian Mavens received O Canada! instead.  Since America has little stars in it, I wish O Canada! had little maple leaves or something...would have been a nice touch.

After receiving my box, and my add-ons Lynn and Audrey (Mavens receive one box per month and can add-on two items from the current month's selections for $4.99 each), I'm regretful of my Boho Glam box decision.  I love my Lynn add-on and wish I could try Yumi and the Peony lip gloss. 

The American Beauty box just feels more me:

Regardless, I do still love my Boho Glam box, but I know I would have loved America Beauty more.

Here is my video review of this months box:

Mischa: turned out to be a more orangey coral rather than pinky coral...not my favorite.
Georgia: a beautiful cherry-scarlet color just as it is described.
Poppy (lip gloss): a beautiful, sheer coral lip gloss that isn't too sticky and smells light and sweet. 
America: a super fun glitzy nail polish for 4th of July...tres fab!

Julep Quote of the Month: 
"We need less posturing and more genuine charisma.  
It's about a sparkle in people that money can't buy."
