Julep Maven Review & Free Box Coupon - October 2013

The bonus item this month was Candy Corn and while it’s not the highest value bonus item, I love it. I’m so ready for fall and Halloween!

Julep Nail Color in Valerie – Value $14

Julep Nail Color in Cleopatra – Value $14

Julep Nail Color in Jasper – Value $14 (This was my add-on)

This month I decided to go with the Bombshell box, and I had to do the  add-on Casper – I can’t wait to try out glow in the dark polish! (I’m also curious about this Black Latex polish!)

Julep Kajal Eye Glider and Sharpener – Value $22

Even though I get so much eye liner in subscription boxes, I was excited to try Julep’s version out! I like that it has two shades and came with a pencil sharpener. I found it was easy to blend and smudge, but I’m guessing that means it probably won’t be very waterproof! (Not that they said it would be). I’m wearing it now and like it, and I’m sure I’ll use it a lot!

Verdict: I thought this was a very fun Halloween box – now I want more Halloween themed subscription boxes! What did you think of the October Julep Maven box? Which nail polish colors did you get?

  1. I LOVE my box! I ordered the modern beauty with add-ons, but they accidentally sent me the bombshell (with my add-ons). I called at 7pm and they were staffed- they let me keep the two colors because they made a mistake, and they’re sending the face mask on Monday! So excited! I got the glow-in-the-dark, which I put on last night. LOVE IT. I’m going to Salem with my friends this weekend and bringing it with me for them to wear!

  2. I loved my box. But mistakenly tried the eyeliner before going into a meeting, ten minutes later -total-raccoon eyes. i will saving this for the Halloween makeup drawer…
    Otherwise nail colors rocked – I am not a fan of Ciara, anyone want to trade their bottle of Beatrix?

  3. i’m ‘it girl’…. ciara looks sooo beautiful!

  4. I just signed up for the 6 month sub Julep Maven based on your review! Thanks, you’re getting me hooked because I signed up for Wantables and Popsugar last week after reading your blog! It didn’t give me the option to upgrade though…is that something that is only available after you’ve been subscribing for a while? Is it and additional $30 on top of the $19.99 or just $30 for the upgrade?

    • During the selection window (the 20th – 24th of each month) you pick which box you want and whether you want to upgrade to the whole collection (an additional $30) or add on items.

      I should be getting my October box any day now!

      • Thank you!

  5. My nail polish, Valerie, arrived broken 🙁
    I ordered the exact same box as you.

    Also, Casper is not glowing in the dark. I am very sad. Perhaps there is something I need to do to make it glow?

    • You have to “charge” it first by exposing it to light. Try holding it close to a desk lamp or something. Then it will really glow.

  6. I got the upgrade box this month. I can’t decide which to try first!

  7. I actually really like that eyeliner! I was skeptical but you’re right its perfect for a smoky eye, blends really well!
