Julep April 2012 Add Ons

The Add On Promotion:
Julep came out with an Add On promotion for the month of April where you have the opportunity of getting EXTRA April Maven Box products for just $4.99 each. Of course, like any other promotions this was while quantities lasts, with up to 2 products allowed. If you skip the Julep April Maven box, your add on selection will be cancelled. Read on to see what the promotion was about and what colours were up for selection.

When I saw this promotion, I jumped on it right away. The selection colours were just so pretty, I had a hard time choosing!

With these 2 Add On items that I had purchased in addition to the Julep April 2012 box, they were shipped separately and this had actually arrived one day earlier. Shipping was super fast considering it had come from the U.S.A. As you can tell, the box they shipped it in is different from their usual Maven Box where this one is smaller and is white in colour with black writing, as opposed to the usual sleek black box with white branding. It's nice that even though the content and box is small, Julep still takes the time to make it a bit pretty with their black crinkled paper strips and bubble wrapping.

Items inside the box:
  1. Julep Nail Vernis Alyson (full size 8ml / .27 fl. oz. retail: $14.00) - $4.99
  2. Julep Nail Vernis Molly (full size 8ml / .27 fl. oz. retail: $14.00) - $4.99

Julep Nail Vernis (colour name = Alyson) Almond creme
Julep Nail Vernis (colour name = Molly) Classic red

My Thoughts:
This promotion was awesome! I liked being able to have the option of choosing the colours. Though truthfully, I got a bit too excited when I saw it that I ordered without thinking and I had originally ordered Alyson and Susie. Silly me, after I thought about it, I realized that the reason Susie was so familiar to me was because I had recently received notice from Julep that I was already receiving it in my Julep Maven April 2012 Classic with a Twist. Instead of contacting Julep, I just took the chance of having duplicates and placed another order, this time for Alyson and Molly (which I noticed later on were the colours included for Julep Maven April 2012 Boho Glam). Luckily, everything worked out perfect for me. I don't know if it's because my 2nd order cancelled out my first automatically or whether the awesome staff at Julep realized I was trying to fix my duplicate Susie mistake, but in the end, I got the 4 different colours I wanted for this month.

The Molly is amazing! It really is a classic red. I LOVE it! Even with just one coat it looked great, and the consistency went on nicely. Alyson was ok, not totally what I expected. For some reason I thought it might be a bit darker. As well, when putting it on it was a bit liquidy/streaky, nothing like Molly though this could be due to the fact that Alyson is a lighter colour.

Overall, I am happy with these 2 colours. Alyson is a shade that I didn't have in my collection and I'm always in search of classic red shades, which I'm quite happy with in Molly. This was a nice promotion that I hope Julep will have again sometime soon in the near future =)
