Sorry for that one day hiatus. I had some family matters to attend to. But here we are! A little late in the month, but I finally received my December Julep Maven box! December's polish collection is called the Countdown Collection. I ordered the Modern Beauty box, which is the beauty product only box, but also added a nail polish with my points. So let's go ahead and see what is enclosed.
From left to right in the above picture is the Orbital Eyshadow in Equinox, the Blank Canvas Mattifying Eye Primer and nail polish in Paula.
Above is a close up the packaging of the primer and Equinox.
Here's a close up of the bottle. Paula is leaning a bit more cool toned in photos, but it is slightly warmer than this, but not by much.
Above is a swatch of Equinox and the primer. I passed through twice on my swatch of Equinox. Leans more gray in pan, but is really a shimmery, silvery taupe. I have yet to test these out, but so far the shadow is rather sheer and can be built up. The primer is super creamy and doesn't tug. I love how opaque it is, so right off the bat, it is something I would consider if you're trying to find something similar to a nude like MAC Painterly. Of course, I realize I should have waited for the primer to dry and also apply Equinox on top, but tired mom syndrome must have been in full effect and it appears it slipped my mind. My apologies.
