Julep Taylor & Lippmann I Know What Boys Like

Possibly my favourite release of 2011 was I Know What Boys Like by Deborah Lippmann (ok, top 5 releases).  And when I got Taylor in the mail from Julep I let out a squeal of joy! It looked SOOOOO close! I was ecstatic. I mean, I love Lippmann and her eye for colours, but Julep's formula......... this was like a gift from the polish gods!! Now they are NOT identical.
As you can see, Lippmann's is a tad bit darker. They are however different shades of the same colour. In doors they dont quite look this different in shade, but the Lippmann is about 3 shades darker, Both however are gorgeous wonderful blurple! The PERFECT purple/blue mix that makes periwinkle always a go to shade (and the colour of my bedroom walls!)


  1. I love this Julep!! Such a beautiful periwinkle! Do you know if they ship to Canada?

  2. Adina - Not only do they ship to Canada, You can get a maven box for 5.00!!! thats with taxes and shipping to canada! then, you get 20% off and free shipping on all orders. it is literally CHEAPER to order a maven box (geting the 60.00 plus dollars in products) before making an order than it is NOT to order the box.

    you can cancel anytime, you are not obligated to keep going, though i recommend NOT cancelling, but rather pausing every month if you dont want boxes as it then lets you KEEP free shipping (to canada) and your 20% off all products and gift combos!!

    if you do decide to order (no obligation to keep on - EVER) please do so through my link so I get the referral credit!

  3. Thanks for the tip - I'm definitely going to check this out! How does the Julep formula compare to, say, Chanel or Dior?

  4. i best compare it to illamasqua. its in general one coat opaque, and wears really really well. only negative i could say is they have very little in the way of unique colours. I was gifted about 9 polishes a year ago and the person who sent them to me said it best "the colours don't look like anything special, but you gotta try the polish. once you try it you'll get it". that's the most accurate description ive heard.
