Julep Maven Review & Free Box Code – August 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 Classic with a Twist box!
The Subscription Box: Julep Maven
The Cost: $24.99 a month ($19.99 a month with a 3-month subscription)

Julep Nail Color in Avni – Retail Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Katie – Retail Value $14
This was one of those months for me when I didn’t know which nail polish color combo to pick, but now that I have the Classic With A Twist colors in my hands I’m happy with my choice. These are both gorgeous microshimmers, and I think the colors are good for late summer to fall.
Julep Gel Eye Glider in Plum – Value $16
This eyeliner has more of a blue tint to it than a purple tint. (I was expecting purple). I like it a lot though. It’s great for a dramatic eye look, and it goes on super smooth. Julep says it sets in 30 seconds and then stays put for 10 hours. I’ve been wearing it for a few hours today, and so far so good!
This box also came with some discount codes and a phone screen cleaner promoting Julep’s new app. (The card says if you download the app and login to your Julep account you’ll get some free Jules points). Also here are two coupon codes for the Julep shop if you’re interested: 10FORYOU ($10 off a purchase of $20 or more), and GLIDERPERK (30% off any gel eye gliders).
Verdict: I really like the beauty item this month, so I’m very happy with the August Julep Maven box. What colors did you get this month?
