July 2012 Julep Maven Box–Classic with a Twist

I feel like I haven’t written about a Maven Box in FOREVER! I guess that’s how it feels when you skip a month as well as a Mystery Box! This July Maven Box was a box that could not be skipped as it was in honour of Canada and Independence Day! When I saw that we were going to be getting a bonus nail polish called “O Canada!” I gasped! What a cool idea! Of course when I saw “America – The Beautiful” with its star-shaped glitter, I had to get it as my add-on! The other reason I was so unbelievably excited about this Maven Box was because this month was all about matching lips and nails which means we also received a lip gloss to match!

Here is what I received in my July Maven Box:

O Canada – “Sheer glitter with accent of cardinal red, it's like nail art in a bottle!”

Freida – “Electric fuchsia micro-shimmer”

Audrey – “Soft light pink micro-shimmer”

Camellia – “Soft light pink pastel lip vernis” to be paired with Audrey.

I absolutely loved this month’s Maven Box and it’s probably my favourite box to date! The only thing I didn’t like were the atomic fireball candies inside…I’m not a fan of that kind of candy, but I appreciated Julep including something extra that was appropriate for the occasion. I’ve worn Camellia already and it’s a very pale pink, almost nude shade that smells like cotton candy Smile. I only wish this box came in time for me to wear “O Canada” for Canada Day this year, but that’s ok because there’s always next year! Or Christmas!

Who else thought this was an awesome Maven Box?

Also, if you haven’t entered my Birthday Giveaway you totally should!

    2. I actually skipped the box and didn't get either - couldn't afford it. But I heard the stars were a real pain to get to!

  4. What?! It smells like cotton candy?? Are you serious? I'm Classic with a Twist and chose to stay with it as well..I adore the colours and they go on flawlessly when I swatched. I find lately, their cream colours are goopy. :( Did you get add ons? I added Kate and Daphne..wasn't as happy..

    1. That's what my lip gloss smells like! Or something very sugary at least! I got America - The Beautiful as my add-on and I think I ordered another lip gloss in Peony. LOL, I don't even remember!

  6. Gorgeous colors! I got the it girl box as my first Julep box and I wasn't really impressed - their polishes are a bit chunky and can be dull. These look better then the ones I received!

    1. I think you can still order the July box though or wait until Julep has one of their 2 for 1 deals and you can get O Canada then.
