As soon as I received the preview email for the Julep Maven March Box, I knew this was a month that I didn't want to skip! I'm the "Boho Glam" category (which is determined by a style quiz when you sign up) and I always love the colors in these boxes!
This month's box came with "Alicia", a "sunny salmon perfect for beach pedicures" according to Julep, and a new glitter polish, "Portia" which is "sheer tropical blue with shimmery sparkles". I love the combination of coral and blue, so I was intrigued by this duo. This month's box also included a bottle of Julep's Elixir Organic Argan Oil, which I am going to try on my hair (you can use it for a moisturizer as well!).
Here is 2 layers of "Alicia":
Then one layer of "Portia" on top:
Color: "Alicia" is an almost neon coral; really wearable and definitely feels like Spring! "Portia" is sheer tropical blue and when added to 'Alicia', toned her brightness down just a hair to make a beautiful, soft, sparkle-fest.
Application/Formula: Although I would not consider "Alicia" to be a pastel, expect her to apply like one. The first layer is streak prone, but everything balances out perfectly with a 2nd layer. "Portia" is not too thick or thin, and applied great. Dries smoothly as well.
