April Julep Maven: The Vivid Collection



April's box was all about bright fun colors for spring and summer. I decided to take a break from nail polish and chose the all make up box (Modern Beauty). My box came in last week and as usual I was a kid in a candy store when opening it. My box came with the light diffusing pore minimizing blush and bronzer. I saw a preview of these two on Instagram (yes I follow Julep on Instagram @julepmaven)before the monthly selection window opened and I knew I had to get them! My blush came in the color Peach Bellini and the bronzer in Medium tan.

So what's all the hoopla about these babies? Well according to Julep they are part of the new jewel dusted line which are enhanced with diamond powder ( diamonds, real diamonds!) They claim this diamond powder helps give a dewy sparkle that minimizes the appearance of pores among other things.

{P.S. the nail polish I am wearing is also from Julep it's called Elisa. I mentioned it in my March favorites here}


Glow Blush in Peach Bellini: I was really excited to get this color in my box. (The other color was a much brighter pink which I have many similar colors in my collection already.) Peach Bellini is the perfect peach pink that has the slightest shimmer that gives just enough radiance to the cheeks. I am always straddling the line between too glittery and too matte, this one is the perfect compromise! The formulation is amazingly soft and pigmented. It does have some fall out from the powder being extremely soft but that is fine with me because the texture is smooth as butter. You only need the slightest tap of this on your brush to achieve the perfect blushed cheeks. This is definitely my new favorite blush.

 

 Glow Bronzer in Medium Tan: A girl can never have too many bronzers, so I was more than excited to receive this in my April box. I was pleasantly surprised with the texture of this bronzer. It is just as soft and buttery as the blush. The color is a bit lighter than I thought it would be so this might not be the best color option for those with darker skin tones. With that being said it is a great color for my fairer complexion. I barely have to use any to achieve color pay off and it blends like a dream. This bronzer give a nice lit-from within glow that this girl loves.

 

Both of these were a total steal in this months maven box at 19.99. The blush retails for  $24.00 and the Bronzer for $28.00.  If you are interested in either of these beauties you can go here and use code GLOW25 and receive 25% off. As always if you are interested in signing up for the monthly box you can go HERE and take the intro survey (if you end up signing up I do get points) use code FREEBOX to get your first box free!
