Julep Maven Review & Free Box Code – April 2015
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.
And, if you sign up for 3-months up front, you 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 Bombshell box plus a few add-ons.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Julep Nail Color in Drew – Retail Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Cassidy – Retail Value $14
The nail polish collection this month is the “Paradise Collection,” and all the colors are pretty bold. I went with these shades since they seemed bold but still wearable (and fun for pedis), and I’m happy with them!
Julep Don’t Leave Your Brows at Home in Rich Brown – Value $24 (Add-on)
Julep Don’t Leave Your Brows at Home in Warm Brown – Value $24 (Add-on)
My box this month came with one brow color in my choice of shade. Since I wasn’t sure which shade would be the best, I decided to add two other brow colors as add-ons to my box this month. (Julep lets you add-on products at a discount each month, and if you add 3 or more, you also get a bonus product).
On one end is the angled brush, and on the other end, is the pot of color. This is described as a brow powder by Julep, but I would consider it more of a colored brow wax. (I prefer this).
I ended up loving the cool brow shade the most for matching my brows, but the rich brown works well too. I’m impressed with the formula as well – it gives really natural-looking brow color, and it is easy to apply. I think this may be one of my favorite Julep makeup products!
Julep Lock Down Your Brows – Value $22 (Add-on)
Since I only needed one more add-on product to get a bonus product, I decided to try out Julep’s new brow gel as well. All of Julep’s products are paraben free, and since some eyebrow gels contain parabens, I was hopeful this could be my new go-to brow gel.
I must admit, brow gels are one of those beauty products that all seem kind of the same in performance. So while this isn’t a life-changing brow gel, it works just as good as other brow gels I’ve tried, with a bonus of being paraben-free!
Julep Lip Gloss in Vivid – Value $20 (Bonus Item)
This was my bonus item for buying three add-ons this month. I like their lipgloss formula, so I’m happy with this bonus.
And each Julep Maven box comes with a little bonus item – usually candy!
Verdict: This month the beauty products are my favorite items in the box! I’m really impressed with their brow powder, and I like every item in the box.
What did you pick from Julep this month? Do you like their brow products?
