Hi~! A few days ago I received my August Julep Maven box, in Boho Glam. August’s collection is named The Art Walk, so of course, being an art historian, I had to have it.
I’m really loving these colors for fall, and grey is one of my favourites year round. I’m sure these two polishes, Erin (grey) and Mary Lee (burgundy) will star in one of my upcoming Manicure Mondays, so I won’t talk too much about them today.
The plush pout lip crayon is an interesting hybrid. It is a twist-style crayon, with a moisturizing core in the middle and lipstick on the edges. First off, I know crayons are trendy, but I don’t see any advantages lip crayons have over conventional lipstick tubes, especially when they’re twisties and have a cap (if someone makes a capless crayon, then I’m on board). The color and saturation of Plush Pout is really great, buuuuut that moisturizing core in the center really throws me off balance. On one hand, with the moisturizing core, this is a nicely smooth medium-wear lip color. On the other hand, the colorless core makes even application of the lip color tricky. In my opinion, the way to achieve the most even coverage is by using a lip brush – which defeats the point of a carry-all crayon. I’m not sure how much this Plush Pout retails for on its own, but as part of this fall set, I’m glad to have it.
