(Julep started out as a nail polish and manicure/pedicure product subscription service, but lately they have been creating more and more beauty products. So far, I’ve been very pleased with their beauty products – check out all of my Julep Maven reviews to see what types of makeup products you can expect from Julep!)The Box: Julep MavenThe Cost: $19.99 a month (+$30 if you upgrade like I did this month!)COUPON: Use code FREEBOX to get your first box for free!The Products: Nail polish plus beauty items.Julep DD Creme in Light – Value $36Julep DD Concealer in Light – Value $32Looking at the swatches Julep provided for selecting the right DD shade, I was debating between Light and Medium – I’m glad I went with Light! Out of the tube this shade looked dark with more yellow/orange tones than I expected, but it went on perfectly! I think I lucked out on the shade matching my skin tone so well – and I’m surprised the lightest shade worked perfectly.The DD Concealer was…interesting. I tried it under my eyes like Julep recommends – but it didn’t compare to my favorite Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circles (which I discovered in the CEW Insider Box). It worked well just for spot concealing, but for me the container of this product is more of an issue. I’m thinking it would have been better in a container like the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle applicator – since there is not a lot of product, you want to make sure you use every last drop!Julep Nail Color in Dianna – Value $14Julep Nail Color in Lexie – Value $14Julep Nail Color in Payton – Value $14Julep Nail Color in Martha – Value $14Julep Nail Color in Char – Value $14Julep Nail Color in Nan – Value $14For some reason I have very few pink Julep nail polishes – so I can’t wait to wear this light pink Martha shade!Julep Nail Color in Raegan – Value $14Julep Nail Color in Kennedy – Value $14Julep Nail Color in Bess – Value $14Verdict: The DD Cream is definitely a win for me – so I’m thrilled with this box. I paid $50 for this box and received nearly $200 worth of product. I definitely wouldn’t pay $32 for the concealer, but I’m happy with all these products for the price I paid. What did you think of the June Julep Maven box? Did the DD products work for you?Written by Liz CadmanLiz is the founder of My Subscription Addiction.
