I’ve been sick so I haven’t had the drive to sit and really think of something cool for everyone to read about. However, I do have a bunch of stuff I want to share so I figured I’d do a bit of this and that in today’s post.
First, I selected my January 2015 Maven Box from Julep, I’m not overly thrilled with anything but there were a few things that I wanted to snag. I love the Luxe Lip Treatment they sell and now they are coming out with tinted ones…yes, please. I’m also excited about their Olive Gel Eye Glider as I have hazel eyes and we all know that’s a big yes! The new Orbital release is stunning, the swatches didn’t overly impress me but I believe more of the color will show if you wet the product and use it as a liner, I’ll surely let you all know if my assumptions are correct. I needed Shelly as that’s my nickname for my little sister, truthfully I could care less about the color – though it is very pretty! Luna is so pretty as well, it also reminds me of Harry Potter which is always a plus in my book. The Mystery Grab Bags always sucker me in – plus I was able to apply 3200 Jules to this order. I really only paid for the grab bag and Luna…deal alert!
Above I did a stunning Julep Annemarie mani with an Adele accent nail – beautiful!
Below is a 3x coat mani of Julep’s Queen Anne, love the sparkle.
Speaking of manicures, I finally bought a Stamping Kit. I snagged both a Konad and and Pueen Kit – plus a SHANY Plate Kit on Amazon. All of them together, with shipping was $28 and some change, you just can’t beat that. I didn’t receive the Konad Stamper yet as it wasn’t available on prime, but I’m definitely excited to try these out:
My organization progress has been significant too. For those of you who, like me, have way too much stuff for all our things, you might like this:
I had mentioned that I bought one of these Honey-Can-Do carts to help me get some kind of organization going that’s appropriate for the size of my cosmetics collection. I love the cart, it was easy to put together and all, but it’s still not big enough. 🙂 I suppose I will need both a Melmer and Helmer once I move. For now – it does suffice, take a look at some of my drawers after the jump!
