Julep Maven October Collection!

It’s Julep Maven selection time for October! This month’s theme is the Black Magic Collection. (I feel like Julep always does great October and December collections).

FYI – if you haven’t signed up for Julep Maven yet, use this link to get your first box free.

Julep Maven October Swatches

What do you think of the colors this month? I like that there are some that are great for fall, and some that have a more Halloween vibe.

They also have some fun themed box pick options too:

Which colors are you picking? Any add-ons?

  1. Just a heads-up for anyone who got the “3 months for $16.97” deal over the summer — even though our Maven accounts said we had a prepaid credit remaining, we don’t. They’ve probably put a $80 charge on your account already. Call them ASAP if you don’t want to continue your subscription (I pressed 3 for billing and got through right away and I’ve already got my confirmation #).

  2. I got Marla – burgundy velvet with silver shimmer and Katerina – pixie multidimensional iridescent top coat. I swapped the night mask for a pink plush pout since I didn’t get one last month. But I’m thinking of going for a Plié wand. What does anyone think about that??
    Does anyone get the secret score deals on the app? I just downloaded it yesterday and there haven’t been any deals yet. Not the secret store. This is something different that is supposed to be a new daily deal for app users only

  3. The dark arts are gorgeous!!!!!!:-)

  4. It’s time I stopped being so cheap! I went with the customised box and am actually looking forward to this month’s offerings, rather than having to swap/give away part of it.
    I got the Ledi, Dana and Night Mask. Add-ons were TaDa Quick dry drops & Cuticle Oil and a couple of sheets of cat decals, which gets me a free gift too.
    I paid with Jules and for some reason I still have 100 Jules left. I really thought that I’d be paying extra as I didn’t have a ton of points.

    • How many Jules did you have? To redeem for a box, you need 2000 Jules, and the add-ons are I believe 750 each. You likely have 100 left because they will only apply Jules in these amounts; if you did not have enough Jules to cover everything, it won’t show it on your order, but you will be charged when the time comes. Plus, they may have redeemed your Jules for just the box, or just the add-ons. I’d recommend calculating out how many Jules you’re redeeming and check to make sure everything you’re ordering is covered, just to make sure you don’t get a surprise charge.

      • I think you’re right. They probably charged me for the box and used Jules for the add-ons.
        At least I won’t hate anything in the box this month!

  5. I got the It Girl box, as I’m not really that interested in Julep’s makeup and skincare products. I rarely get add-ons, but I love October/Halloween so I added the Tia and Casper polishes, and the black cat decals! (love!)

  6. I went for Dark Arts. I don’t have anything like the colors in it. While I like this month’s “normal” colors, I already have similar shades to most of them, so I was happy for the chance to get some colors I don’t have.

  7. I’m so sad, the dark arts box is already sold out!

    • Yeah, I was on at just before 9AM Eastern this morning to get it. I’ve learned to get in there super quickly (and I’m always up by then, anyway).

  8. I LOVE Maven Selection time! I LOVE that we can swap out our whole box, or swap out part of our boxes, and do all the add-ons. I always have a huge smile at Maven Selection Day 🙂

    And this is a great one! I went with October It Girl (Shailene: Bewitched purple with gold iridescence; Ledi: Black pearl shimmer; Dana: White with electric blue sheen -black light reflective).

    I added on Tia: Copper and gold glittered black jelly; Margarita: Palace purple crème; Logan: Sultry aubergine shimmer; and Glam Roc: Midnight purple & gold stardust (matte glitter). Plus the black cat stickers 🙂

    Super excited! Now if only Julep didn’t ship by pony express….

  9. Finally, some colors that caught my eye! After skipping the last two months, I’m getting all of colors in this collection. Very excited!

  10. Wasn’t even a question, went with the dark arts! That was such a great steal with so many products.

    I added on the night mask w/ 2 polishes for 2000 Jules. Which is so confusing to me because just the mask alone cost 1925 Jules. I don’t get how their Jules program works but I was happy to get an extra two polishes for the 75 Jules. Weird. lol

    Either way, no more mystery boxes. I will stick w/ the monthly and add ons. At least this way I know I will love everything.

  11. Love the colors in this collection. I just selected the Dark Arts theme box. Can’t wait!

  12. Will I receive the colors from what’s shown in picture? If so Im probably going to get one.
