Twistband Hair Ties – Value $5

I was happy to see that the bonus item this month is two twistbands! Twistband also included a coupon to save 25% off their Twistband Club subscription plan. (Check out my Twistband Club reviews if you’re interested in seeing what you get with a Twistband subscription!)

I tried these shades out over my Stila primer base, and I like them a lot! They blend well, and the neutral shades have just the right amount of shimmer for me!

Julep Nail Color in Joelle – Value $14

Julep Nail Color in Misti – Value $14

I debated a while on which colors to pick for this month, but I’m glad I went with these shades. They remind me of a winter snowy day, and they’ll still work long after the holidays are over!

Verdict: This is one of my favorite Julep Maven boxes. The nail polish colors are great, I will get lots of use out of the palette, and I even love the bonus twistbands! Which Julep Maven box did you pick this month? What did you think of the eye shadow palette?

  1. I wore the “Misti” to a work conference last week and receieved the most compliments on a nail color I have ever gotten in my life…. and half of them were from men! Not in a “hitting on you way” but in a “I really like that color” way. I thought it was cute, not that special, but apparently its a huge hit!

    • Hi, I ordered my first box yesterday, I love this site, appreciate all the pretty pictures. I can’t wait to get started!

      • Yay! I hope you love Julep Maven. And thanks for reading the site 🙂

  2. I’m a little bummed that I haven’t gotten my box yet. I can’t even track it. This is my second box from them. I had trouble with my first box as well. When I called they were very nice and helpful, it sucks that I’ll have to call again. But I do like the products so far, I just wish I wasn’t having trouble with them.

    • I haven’t received my box yet either. Nor can I find any tracking.

      I guess I will call them if it isn’t here by Friday. This will be the first time I have had a problem.

  3. I got the classic with a twist box this time around. I will let you know how the colors look after I try!

  4. If anyone is not going to use their twistband club code I would love to have it!

    • I don’t think it was a one-time use code. It show’s in Liz’s pic (above): TWIST4JULEP.

  5. I got the Bombshell box with the same eyeshadow palette. I was unsure of the red and metallic gold polishes seeing them online, but I really love them both. I added on Ceila from the It Girl collection and love it as well!

    I’m not sure about the shadow. I’m not really good with make-up, so this will more than likely go to my daughter.

  6. Got the same one! Love it! This month was a really good box and the eye shadows have good pigmentation.
