Sunday Showcase | Julep Lip Gloss

Sunday 15 February 2015


Lipgloss was probably my introduction to the wonderful black hole that is make-up.  Well, Lipsmackers in Strawberry Kiwi, to be exact.  I should have known I would become a make-up horder as I grew up when my Lipsmacker collection exceeded 40.  Not much has changed I suppose.

I was not the most impressed with Julep launched their lipgloss collection-- anybody can make a lipgloss.  They market these having whatever special regenerating cell thingie it is that they put in everything.  Annnnyways this post is to share with you my collection of their lipglosses that I have grown to love and have acquired though mystery boxes, discount orders, and more.  

Once a collector, always a collector. Wonder how my old TY Beanie Babies are doing in storage.  Probably, obviously, worth $1000s now, as an investment.  With the tags still on.


I will say it once.  They all have an off-vanilla flavour.  This sheer pink gloss is pretty, but a but too sweet for me.  Layered on top of a pink lipstick, it can help you achieve that Victorias Secret look.  Wear time for any of these is pretty typical for a gloss- short.


This warm, watermelon shade is pretty and flattering for daily wear.  I have used up about half a tube.  I like that the shimmer is minimal and that it looks pretty and natural with everything.  I would consider re-purchasing if I ever run out.


How cute are these names?  Awestruck is probably my favourite.  Nude with some golden glitter, I love how sweet yet sexy of a pout can be made with this lovely colour.  I would highly recommend this one.


I should note that many people complain that the packaging leads to these exploding or otherwise breaking.  I have never had this issue.  This gloss has a bit more pigment, in the Marsala family.  I would even describe it as a "my lips but better" shade, flattering for many occasions. 


Looooooool so I mainly wanted this one for the name.  It has a more unique finish, maybe a bit frosty?  I quite like it.  The rosy pigment is great for subtle sweet looks, and the name, *swoon*.


Wanted for the name, kept for the colour.  I have always loved "black honey" lip products, and this is no exception.  The boldest of all of the Julep lip glosses that I own, I like it that way.
