QUICK TAKE:  Beautiful packaging...as usual.  I didn't expect the Glow Highlighting Powder to be so big!  The bonus Valentine's day polish is awesome!

USAGE TIPS:  I use the Illume Face & Eye Brightener over my foundation.  I use the Glow Highlight Powder as a finishing touch.

THE VERDICT:  I wanted to order this Julep Maven Modern Beauty box, because I thought it would help me achieve a romantic makeup look for Valentine's Day.  Not only does it do that, the bonus polish is like the icing on the cake for the whole look.  

The Glow Highlighting Powder was slightly chalky when I swatched it on my hand, but it looked beautiful on my face.  It works with my face's natural oils, so it melds in really nicely.  It also contains extracts and oils that help soothe, heal, and hydrate the skin...love it!

I used the Illume Face & Eye Brightener under my eyes and it works wonderfully.  It really covers up any dark under eye circles and also illuminates the under eye area.  The product has antioxidants in it, so it's basically working double time by concealing and healing.  Illume comes in two shades: pink for cool skin tones and champagne for warm skin tones.  You can use the pink on warm skin tones for a brighter highlight and champagne on cool skin tones to add warmth to your face.

Hartleigh, the nail polish, is soOo festive!  I'm not one to love cheesy holiday stuff, but I love the whimsical hearts and opaque white glitter.


ILLUME under eyes & inner corners of eyes - GLOW below brows, high points of cheeks & bridge of nose

  1. The polish is so cute! I love Valentine's manicures. I'm not big into the day, but I love the different nail polishes that come out this time of year :)
