Julep & lilacquer

Hello :)  Let's take a look at the combo that I have for you today ..

2 coats of Julep Alma - a retro dijon - from Trina Turk Fall 2012 Collection
Topped with a coat of lilacquer antimatter of opinion - two sizes orange to green to blue shifting glitter hexes and a fine sprinkling of gold to green shifting shimmer
I am a Julep Maven for about 8 months now and so far I'm pretty impressed with their products, especially their roller-ball cuticle oil.  It is very convenient but I only use that at night.  During the day, I use their Organic Moroccan Argan Oil as cuticle oil and about once a week to 10 days, I put a little bit on my hair right after my shower. It works great.  I don't get every single monthly box though, but I fell in love with the September box as soon as it came out so I picked up the entire collection of 10 shades including 2 mascaras.  If you'd like to find out about the Maven program, please visit julep.com for more details.  I could post my referral link if you decided to join.

I really enjoy this combo - it is subtle yet very sparkly.  I'm sure this glitter topcoat would look great with a darker shade but I sometimes like it over a lighter shade for a different kind of look.  Antimatter of opinion is packed with glitter and the formula is great.  I picked this one up along with 2 others during her Labor Day weekend sale.  Have you tried any lilacquer yet?

What do you think?

Thank you for dropping by.
