Julep Maven Review & Free Box Promo Code – April 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 only $19.99 a month.
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. (They recently changed their skip policy – If you’re a new subscriber, you earn a skip every 6 months).
This month I decided to go with the Classic with a Twist Box!
The Subscription Box: Julep Maven
The Cost: $19.99 a month (+$30-55 if you upgrade.)
The Products: Nail polish plus beauty items.
Ships to: US and Canada
Julep Nail Color in Mariska – Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Caitlin – Value $14
This month was all about bold colors, and I ended up picking the Classic with A Twist box because I thought both of these colors would be perfect summer pedi colors! I also didn’t realize that the hot pink color has a nice shimmer to it!
This was the item that you could pick out which blush or bronzer shade you wanted. I’m happy with the choice I made – this color works well with my skintone. I found the color to be pretty highly pigmented, and I’m happy with it, but I didn’t notice any pore-minimizing effects. (I wasn’t really looking for a pore minimizing blush though since I rely on Miracle Skin Transformer!)
Every month you can “Add-On” items to your box, and this month I decided to try out these powder brushes. (So far I’ve been very impressed with Julep’s brush collection).
And every month Julep includes a little bonus like candy or something better like hair ties. Hopefully next month won’t be candy!
Verdict: I got to pick out my Julep selections, so I had a feeling I’d love this box, but it is always a bit more exciting once I have the items in my hands! The blush color is great too, so I’m happy with the whole box!
Which Julep Maven box did you pick this month?
