Julep Maven Review & Free Box Code – May 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 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).

Julep Nail Color in Shelby – Retail Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Amanda – Retail Value $14
I got bold nail polish colors last month and decided to keep the trend going for this month. Plus since the theme is Set Sail, a nautical blue creme seemed like an appropriate pick!
Julep Feels Like Velvet Full-Coverage Eye Shadow Duo in Moonlight & Starlight – Retail Value $20
This is one of their new beauty products, and I’ve been very impressed with their eyeliners, so I wanted to try out their new eye shadows. (Also I love that all their beauty products are paraben free).
On the back of the package it says “rich color in one swipe.” Because of that statement I was expecting deeply pigmented color, but that isn’t what I got. It took a few brush strokes to establish the color I wanted from the purple shade, and the starlight shade is a sheer subtle shimmer, so I don’t think it is even designed to give the dense color promised.
So while the colors are as intense as I was initially expecting – I still like them. The subtle color is actually better for me for everyday wear, and I like that the powdered formulas are very blendable.
The bonus item this month is salt water candy, and there is also a coupon included for 30% off your next Julep order:
Verdict: I’m happy with my Julep selections this month. The eyeshadow wasn’t exactly what I was expecting, but I ended up liking it a lot. What did you pick from Julep Maven this month?
