It's like having extra Christmases and birthdays.
It's not much a surprise then, that companies which send monthly boxes of goodies in the mail have become so popular lately. All over the place, bloggers are popping up with posts about Birchbox, Stich Fix, and other monthly gifts in the mail.
Well... not gifts because you usually have to pay for them. But you catch my drift.
You can find a box for basically anything. Clothes, makeup, beauty items, food, geeky merchandise, heck I've even found a website to provide for every need a girl might have when she's riding the crimson wave. (Yup, it's a real thing ladies. Click here.)
For awhile I had StichFix - which I loved! I got some awesome clothes from their monthly boxes. However, with the whole "changing my whole life" thing, my budget is pretty tight at the moment. So I cancelled my subscription for the time being.
Then, a few weeks ago a close friend of mine found a company I hadn't heard of called Julp, which sends you nail polish and other small beauty items, and she had a discount code for your first month. (YAY!) You take a style quiz and they match you up with a certain type of style. (I am bohemian glam according to them.) What's awesome though, is they show you what will be in the box. If you don't like it you can look at other boxes which might suit you better.
Naturally, I gave it a go and last week I got my box.
It was so much fun!
It came in a pretty black box.
This letter was the first thing I saw when I opened the package.
Then, it gave me a description of my style profile.
Look at the pretty packaging!
The first item on top was a small tote back. I love the quote and you can never have enough small bags.
The beauty items I recieved were two nail polishes. I LOVE the packaging and the colors. The orange is perfect for Halloween and even with the sparkles it covers your nails well. Only one or two layers and you're good to go. It's a great accent to the blue polish they gave as well. The blue is very dark and at first I thought it was black, but at a second glance I could tell it was a dark blue. It looks beautiful on my nails and it'll be great with my Halloween costume this year. (I'll try to post pictures on Thursday.) I would show you pictures of my nails, however, I'm awful at painting them. No matter how great of a polish it is, I always find a way to make my nails look like a kindergartner painted them.
The other beauty item was a repair skin serum. It is for AM or PM and can be used anywhere on your skin that needs repair. It's a clear liquid type of a product and after you put it on, be sure to follow up with moisturizer. I love the small size and how easy it is to use because I can throw it in my purse or a travel bag if I need to. This is handy because we all have skin problems this time of year!
That was my awesome beauty products for the month! I love getting boxes like these in the mail because I can try out things I normally wouldn't. Especially nail polishes. I've been loving doing my nails lately, so this was perfect!
