Julep Glitter Nail Color in Yumi Review $14

A glittering quick-dry nail color adds the perfect amount of holographic twinkle to your manicure.

IcanGWP Review: Yumi is clear and contains multi-color glitters. This shade looks stunning indoors. The soft muted pink glitters are delicate, classic, romantic and beautiful. It is versatile and we can use it as a sparkly top layer too. It dried super fast and the scent is less strong than most premium nail polishes. The only downside is that it can look flashy in the sun. The pink and gold are somehow camouflaged and only the big patchy silver glitters show.

Another glitter one in the black package is Mila.

Julep Metallic Nail Color in Zelda Review $14

Julep metallic polish coats your nails in a rich burst of color in a high-shimmer finish.

IcanGWP Review: This shade is awesome on tanned skin! The metallic gold looks as awesome as it does in the image. I like that it is so easy to apply. The formula is more cushioney and almost fail proof. If you are new to metallic nail polish, this is a good one. I like the depth and dimension effects this polish created. It looks breathtakingly pretty and I don’t need any top coat. I can’t recommend Julep nail polish enough!

Another metallic one in the white package is Penny.

Here’s the well-earned Julep gift with purchase from Nordstrom!

Gift with Purchase   Nordstrom julep.png

Receive deluxe samples of Length Matters Buildable Lengthening Mascara (0.2 oz.), Take a Breather Oxygen Nail Treatment (0.12 oz.) and When Pencil Met Gel Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Blackest Black (0.02 oz.) with your $50 Julep purchase. A $27 value.


Julep When Pencil Met Gel Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Blackest Black Review | Full size $16

This easy-to-use, waterproof eye pencil delivers the creamy formula and intense color payoff of a gel eyeliner. 10 hour water resistant wear + intense color payoff.  Trace along the lash line and let set for 30 seconds. Smudge before the color sets, or create a clean and classic winged eye without any tugging or pulling.

IcanGWP Review: This shade is a matte carbon black. First impression, I really like this hybrid eyeliner. It was like a good mix of cream eyeliner and pencil liner. It’s soft and glides effortlessly. It’s also firm enough to allow me to draw a sharp line and stay crisp – not smudge easily. The pigment is good.  Julep products are in general good for sensitive eyes. The only thing I wish it could improve is how it transfers to under my eyes. I would not use it for the inner liner again.

Julep Length Matters Buildable Lengthening Mascara Review | Full size $20

Layer on the length with this buildable lengthening mascara.

How to use: Hold the wand horizontally and sweep on smoothly without wiggling, starting at the base of your lashes. Layer to achieve your desired look.

IcanGWP Review: Here comes the shortest and very sparse rubber bristle mascara. The unique micro brush is super fine and defines individual lashes. I find it’s a strong player for length, volume and lash separation. I need to pump the wand in and out the tube to get more product on it. The tiny wand can get the crease of your eye. It does a great job lengthening and volumizing in two coats. It can get more volume (or clumpy a bit) if you wiggle it.  The caveats are it’s very short and you’ll need a steady hand. Also, the straight bristle is not twisted at all so all the product did not evenly coat my lashes but more like on the bottom and sides of them. I like that Julep doesn’t filter honest reviews and you can see all kind of opinions and thoughts about this product at their site here.

Quick take:

Julep nail polishes are always a diva and I love them. The price is right. It’s also good to get to try Julep makeup products from Nordstrom. I just have to try it to get it out of my curios beauty blogger’s system. They are unique, honest and I respect their guts to offer alternative and more adventurous items like the two I just reviewed or hydrating and exfoliating cleansing oil + conjac or facial milk.
