I'm BACK! + March Julep Maven swatches!

Hey everyone!! My hiatus is officially over. I have finally made some time for myself  to start swatching and such and so I should be able to post more regularly, at least for the next couple of weeks. After that, I start doing tech for a musical they're doing at my school so I don't know how much time I'll have when that starts, but until then... I'm back!

Also, in other exciting news... I reached 200 followers while I was away!! I really need to start planning a giveaway for that soon. I promise I will!!!

...aaaaand for those of you that might not know, I started a personal/makeup/randoms/weight loss/Disneyland/etc blog that I try to post in regularly. I've done really well with my weight loss, I have lost 15 pounds since I started at the end of January and I'm loving it. I feel fantastic! Check out my Personal Blog for my own personal non-polish ramblings! haha

Okay, so! On to today's post. I have swatched from the March Julep Maven It Girl box. I didn't do a box opening video because at the time I got my box, I didn't have time and I didn't take pictures of the box itself because it was just their standard packing... black box, crumply paper inside, bubble wrap and ribbon... nothing too special. I gotta say when I got the e-mail about this box, I got really excited because it said something about a holographic effect....... yeah its not so much holographic as a teal shimmer... but I'll get in to that later. So these are the colors I got, described by Julep:

Charlotte: Demure lavender creme. Sophisticated with a twist.
Jodie: Deep rose with a golden shimmer.
Melissa: Sheer opalescent shimmer adds a soft glow when used alone and a high-fashion holographic effect when used over another color.

First up, Charlotte. It is exactly as described by Julep. A lavender creme. Fortunately I love lavender cremes because of how they look on my skin tone so I'm really happy with this color, but its not anything spectacular or new.

Next is Jodie. This is really pretty. I actually wouldn't have picked it for myself and that's why I love the Julep Maven program. Anywho its really pretty and my camera is NOT accurate on this. Its a little more pink than its picked up. Also, she had a little accident. Its not broken, it just leaked a little on the way.

And finally, the polish that was supposed to be "holographic". Melissa. Its a shimmery teal that gives everything its swatched over a shimmery teal duochromey effect. It is really gorgeous and I pretty much love it but I am annoyed cause its not holographic :/. I swatched this over Charlotte.

All of the above: Natural Light - Direct Sunlight

Thanks for reading, until next time!
