About a week and a half ago, this box was delivered to my home. After placing my regular monthly Julep Maven order, the "secret store" was opened up to those who accepted their box. It is a special page offered for 72 hours and has products discounted quite a bit. I looked through and decided I didn't have many purple shades from Julep. There was a trio offered that caught my attention.
It was called Fields of Lavender and contained (from left to right) Billie Jean, Renee, and Eden. All three polishes are, obviously, shades of purple. I believe it was about $13.99. I knew I had recently seen Eden in a monthly box, and regretted not selecting it ever since. I figured this was my chance to get it! Beyond the polishes, they included a small sample of their Rock Star Hand Cream.
Billie Jean is kind of a fuchsia-purple. It is bright, without being neon, and perfect for spring and summer. Renee is a soft, gray-lavender. It is probably close to something like Essie Lilacism, but with more grey in it. I don't have Lilacism near me at the moment to compare. I have a lot like Renee, but one more surely can't hurt anything. Eden is the star, in my opinion. It is a vivid, electric violet. Now, while I might have something similar in my collection, my mind can't draw any names. I do know for a fact that if I do have any similar, they don't have the same finish. This dries down to a rubberized matte finish. I've said before that I am not the biggest matte fan, but something about this one I enjoy. I think it would also be stunning with a glossy top coat.
Eden is probably going to be the first one I apply. I'm really excited to have my fingers and toes done in this color. I'm madly in love with it.
