Julep Sandra : Hot Pink Summer!

I found my hot pink color for the summer. It is Julep's Sandra, which is a magenta with a frosty finish.

Although I am a Julep Maven, I actually bought this on Hautelook because they had a brights polish set, including Robin and Daisy, on sale in July.

Julep's Sandra is the perfect pink for the summer. It's bright, beautiful and it goes on easily. 

What do you think?

If you like this nail polish and want to know more about the Maven subscription box program, you can do an introductory box for a penny. If you want to do this, just go to the website (, take the quiz and put in the code COLORS4ONE during checkout. This is good for only the first month though. However, you can always cancel after that.

3 Favorite Beauty Products at the Moment: Hair, Face & Skin

Lately, I have been frequently using 3 different products

One of these products is Julep's Elixir (Organic Moroccan Oil). 

Although it can be used for your skin & cuticles, I've mostly just used it on my hair. My hair is usually very frizzy and quite frankly, a hot mess. In my June Julep Mystery box, I received the Elixir. I was really excited to use it because I had read some good reviews.
Ever since I received it, I've been putting a bit of it on my hair after I shower. Since I started using it, my hair has become much more manageable and less frizzy.  Before the oil, I wouldn't even let my hair air dry because it would be so unruly, but now I do it all the time and it looks great. I have even received compliments from my boyfriend who has noticed a difference in my hair. 

The other product that I have been using is Mark's Touch & Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes All Over Face Palette. 

This is perfect as a bronzer for a shimmery summer glow. The mix of the bronze, golds and pinks gives my skin a healthy, brilliant glow that I love for these summer months.

I have also been using it as eye shadows because I love the colors so much.

The third product that I currently love is First Aid Beauty Smooth Shaving Cream.

I received a sample of this shaving cream with last month's glossybox.

It's one of the best shaving creams I have used. It makes my legs super smooth and doesn't irritate my skin. I liked the sample so much, that I want to go buy a regular size bottle now.
