May Julep Boho Glam: Set the Stage

Julep took us back to the roaring 1920's for the May Maven boxes, perfect timing for the upcoming The Great Gatsby release.  Not only were there new polish colors, but also an adorable trio of mini lipsticks.  Lots to get excited about here!
Millie, Alice
I stayed with my usual Boho Glam box, as I wanted the warmer toned lipsticks included in that profile.  The dusky dark blue cream Millie also appealed to me, as navy or dark blues have some sort of hold on me.  The other polish is Alice, a lilac shimmer.  I don't have anything like it in my collection, and while I'm not sure it will work with my skin tone, it's a lovely color.  
I'll be doing separate reviews of the lipsticks after I get a feel for them, but they are:
  • Tea for Two: a sheer caramel beige with a slight shimmer
  • Satin Doll: a sheer poppy red
  • Lady in Red: an intensely pigmented crimson red matte
I love the extra item this month and cannot wait to try them out.  Julep really hit it out of the park this month!  Not counting the hair clips, the value is $56, as each of the polishes are $14 and the lipstick set is $28 for those not in the Maven program. 
Disclaimer:  I purchased this.  I subscribe to the Julep Maven program for $19.99/mo.  If you would like to subscribe, please consider using my affiliate link, which helps me earn Jules that can be spent in the Julep shop.
