Julep Maven Review & Free Box Coupon Code – September 2017
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 items you want, you can upgrade to the entire collection, or you can skip that month.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

And this month we get… STICKERS!!
I probably get more excited about stickers than most, but my laptop is covered in them now thanks to subscription boxes!
Julep Nail Polish in Sammy – Retail Value $14
Julep describes this shade as a Sand Dune Creme. I call it Dream Greige!
It’s a high shine creme formula (my favorite), and I only needed one coat for full coverage:
Julep Clean Slate Acetone-Free Conditioning Nail Polish Remover – Retail Value $14
I wear a lot of nail polish thanks to subscription boxes, so I decided to add remover to my box this month.
This one has a pump so you press down on the top with a cotton pad – pretty efficient! It still smells like nail polish remover 🙁 but I noticed it didn’t try my nails/cuticles out as much as regular nail polish remover does, so that’s a win! (And of course, it removed my nail polish, too!)
Julep Insta-Filter Invisible Finishing Powder – Retail Value $32
I typically use a loose invisible setting powder after applying foundation, but I wanted something to keep in my bag to help with shine throughout the day – and this seemed perfect!
The compact comes with a foam disc applicator, and the setting powder is a pressed powder pan:
This definitely does the job of eliminating shine and giving my pores a bit of a blur! Yay! The only thing I noticed is that it isn’t completely invisible. There’s a bit of a white hue. This isn’t a deal breaker for me, but depending on your skin tone might be. Just a heads up!
Verdict: I’m happy with all my choices this month! The nail polish shade is gorgeous, and the nail polish remover and finishing powder are both super practical items for me. This box has a retail value of $60, and I think that’s a great deal for a $24.99 box you can completely customize.
I highly recommend this subscription if you love nail polish and/or you like having control over your beauty box items! (And I also recommend doing the 3-month subscription at $19.99 a month for better savings!)
