My October Julep Maven Box!

Hello readers!! This is one of my most favorite posts I do each month! I received my Julep Maven box and couldn't wait to show you what I got! I am "American Beauty" and here are the goodies:

In The Box:
Dendrie nail polish ($14)
NEW Julep Glow On Hand Brightener ($32)
NEW Julep 2011 Holiday Color Brooklyn ($14)
Total retail price was $60, and I got these for FREE! 
Since I signed up before a certain date when the referral system had a glitch, I recieved this month's box free to make up for any possible lost referrals! You would normally pay $19.99 a month for your Julep  Maven box.

First up, we have Brooklyn. Such a gorgeous red!! This is 2 coats. It was hard to capture with the glitter and I think my pictures make it more bright/cherry than it is. I love it. I think I may wear this to an upcoming wedding because it is so gorgeous!

This is topped with 2 thin coats or Orly Sec n Dry and you can still see some texture from the glitter found in the red base. I'm sure that Gelous before my top coat would have made a huge difference. 

And here we have Dendrie. Described as "a chic, dove grey." This was pretty sheer and needed 3 coats for these pictures. I don't think I love this with my skin tone but it's a pretty grey!  

As for the Glow On skin brightener, I really love it. It smells so nice and doesn't feel too greasy while on my hands. It must have some kind of shimmer in it because my hands really looked like they glowed when I had it on.  I just love the hand treatments we get in our monthly boxes with the polishes!

My verdict for this months box? I like all of it! Even though Dendrie may not be flattering on me, it applied nicely and dried so quickly and shiny! I had no top coat in the above pictures! I look forward to seeing what I get next month in my Julep Maven Box!
