First off, there were two info cards and a cute magnet. This month's box carried Julep + Trina Turk collaboration shades. The colors were inspired by Trina Turk's Modernist Maverick Collection; hence, the fashion design theme.
The products I received were two nail polishes and a mascara. The two polishes are Gunta (royal blue creme) and Popova (kelly green creme). I think these colors are gorgeous, especially since I love blues and greens. They did, however, remind me of two shades from China Glaze's Safari collection. I quickly went through my stash for a bottle comparison and here's what I found out. As far as I can tell, Popova is more green than CG Exotic Encounters, while Gunta leans more navy than CG Man Hunt. So I compared Gunta to CG First Mate and they look almost the same. Of course, I'm don't know how they will compare on the nail, but in the bottle they were quite similar.
Here's the mascara in Espresso Brown. On the packaging, it says: "Instant glam for any look plus lash growth enhancement ingredients as your secret weapon. Micro fibers lengthen, strengthen, and plump to boost the luster of every lash. Super-fine applicator smoothly separates and coats with emollients, antioxidants, and conditioners to lock in moisture and protect from breakage." Whew, that's a lot. Hopefully it lives up to all that. I am excited about trying this, but I do wish that the mascaras kind of followed the Trina Turk theme as well. I wouldn't mind some blue mascara! But I guess not everyone would like that. :P
