Julep Maven Review & Free Box Code – December 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.
This month I decided to go with the Classic with a Twist box.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

I had no debate picking out my polishes for this month – these colors are perfect for the holidays!
Julep Orbital Eyeshadow – Retail Value $18
I picked the Equinox shade, which is described as a “pewter with silvery purple pearlescence.” It goes on somewhat sheer, and Julep included a card recommending using a wet eyeshadow brush for a heavier pigmented look. I really like the color – and the pearlescent pigment gives it dimension without being too shimmery/sparkly. I tried it without eyeshadow primer and it did crease pretty easily – but I think that’s the case with pretty much any eyeshadow when I don’t prime first.
Verdict: I’m happy with my nail polish shades and my beauty product this month! Did you try the Orbital eyeshadow this month? Which color did you get?
Als0 – FYI this box came with a Julep shop coupon code – 30% off a purchase with coupon code THRITYOFF.
