boudoirOoooh lookie, now we’re talking 2014! This is kind of scary — the end of the year is just completely disappearing now. I guess we really do only have 11 days left in the year. Time to reflect back and make changes for the new year, I guess…

But in the interim, it’s Julep Maven selection time! Serious spoilers were dropped for this collection at the Julep NYC pop-up store, as in…all the colours, the name, and even the promo card showcasing the Maven products. As someone who doesn’t care a bit for secrets, it didn’t bother me at all…and in fact, it kinda made me a bit excited to see the official collection, because the colours were appealing to me but the finishes were a bit of a mystery.

My Selection:

myselection

I chose the Polish Lovers set — all nine polishes offered this month, but none of the product. I am intrigued by the products, but I have a lot of polish drops and some cuticle remover already. The tool interested me quite a bit, but it wasn’t included in the upgrade set, so no dice. I’ll wait for it to go on sale!

Overall I am quite excited to receive this box — the variety of finishes and the soft neutral shades are really appealing to me, especially Noelle, Mona, Abigail and Annemarie. Mavens, what did you select? Or, conversely, did you skip January?
