Julep: Bombshell and It Girl Welcome Boxes + coupon

This post contains referral links.

So I never ended up posting my thoughts for my first Julep welcome box… mainly because I decided to cancel my subscription right after I tried them out (I didn’t think the subscription was worth the $19.99 a month) because I didn’t like the formulas of either one. The subscription is now $24.99 a month (cheaper with a longer subscription) which is quite pricey for 2-3 polishes or 2-3 beauty items a month, imo.

Scroll all the way to the bottom if you want details about the coupon code.

Free welcome box (just pay shipping).

My Taiwan skincare haul

Did a little bit of research before heading to Taiwan on what skincare items would be good to look for while in Asia. I mainly consulted the “Asian Beauty” subreddit and a bit of Googling. Tammy also sent me a list written by our good friend. So I had a general idea of what I wanted to look for.

Here’s a photo of part of (half of my haul consists of boxes of masks so you’re not missing much) my haul all laid out under incandescent light:

Swatched: Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner and Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz

This post contains affiliate links.

These are two of things I was looking to buy during Sephora’s Spring’s Hottest Ticket event aka 15% off your order (see if you qualify and what code you should use here). I couldn’t find swatches of Stila’sΒ Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Emerald and Olive (the colors I was interested in buying), and I also couldn’t find a decent swatch of Anastasia Beverly Hills’s Brow Wiz in Granite.

So when my mom wanted to go to the mall, I took it upon myself to run over to Sephora and swatch these two products in various colors on my arm. Click on photos to enlarge them.
