This month's Classic with a Twist was nothing but creams and the like. No polishes at all! So, of course I was going to pick another box! Bombshell came with two polishes ($14 each), a foot file ($6) and the "Best Pedi Prep Ever!" (and boy do I need it! $20). Also, because this was my first box, they included a pretty nice make up bag. The inside of the bag has these great pockets to hold some of your julep colours for when you're on vacation. :)
The girls in this Bombshell box are Sarah and Fina.
Sarah is a pretty sneaky name for this colour. It's this hot raspberry sheer base with very fine iridescence and glitter. And it's not this sissy sheer raspberry base, either. It's packs quite the colour punch. I can see Sarah and I becoming fast friends.
Fina. She's as exotic as she sounds! She's a sky metallic blue with a mod chrome finish. Very edgy and very cool! There was something wrong with the brush though - it was a little splayed... It made for a very messy, streaky and uneven application. Not impressed. The colour is truly stunning and it's the perfect metallic blue to be wearing in the summer because it's a warmer shade of metallic blue.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with the box that I picked. I am disappointed with the brush, but I did read something on Facebook about Julep shipping out replacement brushes, so we'll wait and see. I'm still anxiously waiting for my mystery box to arrive though!
Total Value of Box : $54.00. Not bad for $19.99!
Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
NEWSFLASH!!!! Okay, maybe not a REAL newsflash...but...I do have some news for those that currently subscribe and those that are thinking of subscribing to Glymm, if you haven't heard already...Glymm version 2.0 is coming out soon. I don't have a lot of information on it, but it sounds like they've revamped their boxes. Whether it be new suppliers or new look, or both. I do not know for sure. I do know that if you are current subscriber, you don't have to do a thing. I like that - only because I'm kind of lazy! ;P
Second thing, for those that currently subscribe to Glymm, you probably received a cryptic email announcing Glymm Nylon S/S 2012, limited edition ($12/month. Currently Glymm costs $10/month). Once again, I'm not sure what it is exactly, but if anyone knows or has some good theories, throw them my way! I've never been a very patient person and this is no exception! Here's my theory though...I think that they are testing a new box. Perhaps it'll be one that they will roll out permanently to eventually replace their current box and increase the price point. Think MyGlamBag in the US. I hope that this is a positive move for them because I'm on the verge of cancelling them....so it looks like I might have to give it a few more months!
