Hello Lipstick Lovers!
This is gift idea number two for you or your friends that are obsessed with all lipstick aka lipstick addicts. I have actually heard of this brand from Desi over on YouTube long ago. I was like what? Julep? I didn't pay no mind to it and had no intention in trying anything new. I had enough liquid lipsticks! I was over at Ulta like I mentioned in this blog here looking for some awesome curling iron because my previous one literally failed on me at ABC Kids Expo in Vegas. I think I even "accidentally" left it there. I was looking for another shade of lipgloss by Anastasia Beverly Hills and the sales associate introduced me to lorac lipgloss which i talked about in the other blog post imentioned AND she also introduced me to Julep. She mentioned it was her favorite liquid lipstick ever because it is different than the normal liquid lipsticks out there.
Before I talk about the actual lip products itself. I want to mention the awesome price point of this trio. Retail price of lip mousse by Julep is $20 each, and with this gift set you get three for the price of one and a half! The consistency of this is not at all like a "liquid" lipstick, its not even the creamy feeling of some liquid lipsticks like Dose of Colors. Julep's Lip Mousse feels so light and airy and it applies so wonderfully. Since it's a whipped consistency, it allows me to apply this with so much ease, I rate it FIVE STAR mommy makeup. It does not fall into the lines of your lips and most importantly, it does not dry out my lips at all. At aaaaaaaaaall. I had to emphasize that. It is SO comfortable. With that said, it does transfer, not as much as a regular lipstick, but it does leave some sort of transfer on your coffee cup. It's not a deal breaker for me because if my lips feel healthy and normal while wearing this, a little transfer is nothing! The color stays on my lips until night time when it's time to remove my makeup.
This company is based in Seattle, Washington. The ladies at Ulta also mentioned that the owner is Korean and her name is Jane Park! I could have sworn I saw her in QVC one time. Anyway, the colors shown here are called Bisou, Pout, and At Midnight. Bison is a beautiful pinky mauve that I know for sure could be a great fit for most skin colors. I don't look quite right with most colors that are mauve because they are a little bit too cool toned for me, but this one has nice shades of pink that make our complexion look healthy. It's one of their popular colors and I can see why! The next shade that is not part of their regular line and only in this set is called Pout which is described as an orchid. This is lighter and more cool toned than Bisou... While I think it's pretty, I cannot pull this off without actual face and eye makeup because it would make look too colorless. The last color in the set is called At Midnight, which is such a nice Christmas red that would look perfect for the holidays. I love red occasionally and the color for this one is phenomenal.
I have since then added a couple more colors, one of them being XOXO, which is such a pretty color! I can't wait to try more colors out as i love this formula so much. With the colder months coming up, wearing liquid lipsticks everyday just wont benefit unless i want to have super cracked lips. That is NOT cute! The Julep Lip Mousse is a nice alternative to the mainstream liquid lipsticks if you are not a gloss person. Have you tried this yet? What is your favorite product from their line?
