Every month they have 5 different boxes you can choose from for $19.99 or you can upgrade for an additional $30 to get the entire collection. Almost every month I splurge and do the upgrade. I resisted for the August month though, I guess I just wasn’t feeling all the colors? I did buy an add-on though! I’m really pleased with Julep’s new packaging – this month is celebrating their two-year anniversary, but I hope the bright box color trend continues! Another change that Julep made – Add-ons now ship with your subscription box. (In the past these usually shipped separately). If you aren’t familiar with Julep Add-ons, after you select your Maven box for the month, you have the option to add on different nail polish colors, sets or other beauty items at deep discounted prices! The Box: Julep MavenThe Cost: $19.99 a month (+$30 if you upgrade)COUPON: Use code FREEBOX to get your first box for free!The Products: Nail polish plus beauty items.Ships to: US and CanadaCheck out all of my Julep Maven reviews! Forget-Me-Not-Seeds – Bonus ItemJulep DoubleStep Foot Treatment and Friction Stick – Value $22Every month Julep includes a little surprise item in the boxes. It ranges anywhere from candy to lip balm. The message on these seeds: “Thanks for helping us grow into something beautiful.” I’m not sure I’ll use these seeds – I wish I had a green thumb. But the idea is cute!I am excited to try this DoubleStep though. It has a nice peppermint scent, and it’s paraben and sulfate free! Julep Nail Color in Francis – Value $14Julep Nail Color in Lois – Value $14The Champagne Trio (Amity, Clio & Reiko) – Value $42 (Add-on)Is it bad that my favorite item in this month’s box is the add-on? I love the packaging of the colors of this Champagne Trio. Now I wish I had bought two so I could gift one for a celebratory event!Verdict: I paid $19.99 for the August Julep Maven box (plus add-on costs, I think either $14.99 or $19.99) and I’m very happy with the value of this box. I’m hoping that the September colors for next month wow me – unboxing the whole collection is definitely fun! Did you upgrade this month?
