Julep has released some lip treatments in the March 2014 Maven box and of course I just had to try them.  I'm not really sure why, because I have not had much luck with their lip treatments & balms.  I really like their glosses, just have not liked the results of their treatments.

I have found that the products from the Luxe line do not absorb well into the skin.  Meaning, I feel like I'm rubbing the serum into my hands consistently for well over 5 minutes...regardless if my skin is dry or damp.

And the Luxe lip treatment, feels just like I'm coating my lips.  It's not a thick formula, but again it doesn't absorb into your lips and make them softer but it doesn't make them dry either.  I would recommend applying it over a really good moisturizing balm/treatment to keep it in place.

I was more pleased with the Luxe Lip Scrub than the treatment.  It is actually very moisturizing and creamy, but I will say the granules of the scrub are really, really fine and not enough of it comes out.  I really think this is due to the delivery system..the opening for the product is not very big.  I am not a fan of this type of delivery system because it seems like you always get too much because of the way you have to prime it.  I wish they used the same base from the scrub in the lip treatment.
