Julep Maven Review & Free Box Coupon Code – June 2014
Julep Maven is a monthly nail polish and beauty subscription box. They make all their own products, so subscribers get a good value each month – over $40 retail worth of product for $24.99 a month. (Julep recently raised their prices, but apparently there will be more customization too. Current subscribers will keep the $19.99 rate).
And, if you sign up for 3-months up front, you also get the $19.99 rate!
Each month Julep releases a new collection on the 20th, and you can decide which box you want, you can upgrade to the entire collection, or you can skip that month. (They recently changed their skip policy – If you’re a new subscriber, you earn a skip every 6 months).
This month I decided to go with the Bombhell box!

The Cost: $24.99 a month ($19.99 a month with a 3-month subscription)

Julep Nail Color in Colette – Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Sera – Value $14
If you’re new to Julep polish, it’s vegan and 5-free. I personally like the formula, (I know some people love it and some people don’t), and I’ve found that the Freedom Polymore Topcoat has made all my Julep shades even better. (It’s like a gel finish without the hassle of removing gel polish).
I’m really happy with both of my picks this month – Sera is a beautiful micro glitter that will look great on its own or layered over a different color, and I don’t have many purple shades so Colette is a great addition to my ever growing Julep collection!
Wonka Pixy Stix – Bonus Item
Julep Oxygen Smoothing Base Coat – Value $18
I’m very interested in this smoothing base coat – especially because I hate when polish stains my nails. I’ve been impressed with most of the other nail treatment products I’ve tried from Julep so I have high hopes for this!
(If you are wondering about the pixi sticks – for every box Julep usually includes a little bonus item – candy, chapstick, hairpins, etc.)
Verdict: I like getting beauty products from Julep, but I’m kind of glad their extra item this month was another nail care item – I think it is what they do best. I’m happy with my June selections – what did you get from Julep this month?
