Makeup and Muses: Julep December Maven Box Review


Happy New Year!
Are you a fan of Julep like I am? Well I recently received the Julep December Maven Box: Classic With a Twist. This particular box includes two nail colors and a foot scrub.

The Instant Warming Foot Scrub is scented in cucumber and mint with a natural pumice.

The foot scrub warms up on contact and then the pumice exfoliates.

Ingredients like chili pepper oil stimulate circulation in your feet while vitamin E nourishes. All you have to do is use the scrub 2-3 times a week. 

The last Maven box that I received also included a foot scrub, but this one is a bit different because it is meant to be more of a scrub than a lotion.

Because it is a scrub it does exfoliate much better than a regular lotion.

The two colors that come with the Julep Classic With a Twist box are Barbara and Scarlett. 

Barbara is a full coverage magenta glitter, while Scarlett is a vibrant red metallic. I put on Scarlett first and then added Barbara on top.

It turned out like a really pretty shimmery oxblood that you might have seen on my Instagram.

As you can see, I wanted to showcase what Scarlett looks like before the glitter. Two coats will give you this very nice shade of red.

My other hand is with both Scarlett and Barbara. All you need to do is put on two coats of Scarlett to achieve the glitter shimmer over the red.

Once the two colors are on top of each other they make a great oxblood/burgundy shade, which is pretty much all the rage these days.

The color is a great holiday party look that would rock on your nails this New Year's Eve!

The Maven box also contained a DIY cabochon ring that you could paint on with your nail polishes to create a ring color of your choice.

What do you think of the Scarlett and Barbara nail colors in the Classic With a Twist Julep December Maven box?
