Getting there with catching up on Julep Maven Boxes! We are up to November, which was full of wins and losses for me. So the first thing that happened is I got my email telling me what was in my Julep Maven box for November. And this light mossy green creme, Selena, was included and SO not what I am in to. So for the first month I request a new pull and asked for the Bombshell Box instead. So disappointingly when I opened up my box - Boho was still staring me in the face? What gives?!?! FAIL! So I emailed Julep and within a few days they let me know they had some issues with the system for requesting new pulls and I would get another Box (the correct one this time) immediately and for free and that the Boho Box was mine to keep. WIN!
So let's start with the first box I received, the wrong one. It came with a Julep Maven bag, which is a black cloth bag with the Julep logo quilted into it (super cute - WIN), a plumping lip gloss in Extravagant (WIN for now, beautiful color), and Selena (FAIL! more on that too). They also threw in more sample of their hand/skin care products which I'm not a fan of on scent alone (FAIL).

So Extravagant... I actually never got this on my lips, only my hand. The color is actually gorgeous. It's a pinky taupe neutral with soft gold shimmer. It was really lovely and would have been great for work. However when I got box number 2 I decided to try it's plumping lip gloss and subsequently found out I was very ALLERGIC to it. The skin around my lips got red and huge. It was so weird looking. I wiped it off and about 40 minutes later my lips were back to normal. So Extravagant never made it to wear, no more swollen red lips for me please. I mean I know this is plumping, but plump my lips not my entire mouth region! FAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!
