Julep Maven Vampy Welcome Box Review + Free Box Offer


Julep Maven is a monthly nail polish and beauty subscription. (Each month they release a new collection and you can customize which items you want or skip that month).


I have a regular subscription to Julep Maven, and Julep reached out to see if I would be interested in reviewing one of their free Welcome boxes. (The free Welcome box is the first box you get when you sign up for a Julep subscription, and a great way to try out the nail polish and makeup to see if it is for you).

This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Currently, Julep is offering a free Vampy Welcome box in time for Halloween:


Use coupon code ENCHANT to get this Julep Maven Welcome Box free – just pay $2.99 shipping.

This subscription renews at $24.99 a month, but if you sign up for the 3-months upfront package, you still get the free welcome box, and your cost per month is $19.99 a month. (Scroll down the page to get the 3-month offer).

Details: All Maven plans automatically renew, and you may cancel anytime. Billing occurs on the 27th of each month. Once you join, you’ll be able to customize your monthly Maven box with your favorite nail colors & beauty products from a brand new Julep collection (or wait for a surprise). Your free welcome gift includes three nail polishes and one beauty product. Items may be substituted.


The Welcome Box comes with a fold out card introducing you to the Julep Maven subscription. I like that the call out the important dates to remember:

20th-24th: The collection is revealed for the upcoming month, and you need to select your box or skip by the 24th.

27th: Boxes start to ship

1st: The Secret Store opens! (The Secret Store is a sale that is accessible only to Julep Maven subscribers).


This box also includes a unique 50% off coupon for your next purchase from Julep.

Julep Gel Eye Glider in Smoky Taupe Shimmer – Retail Value $16

This eyeliner is one of my absolutely favorite Julep beauty products – it glides on so easily, gives great pigment, and stays in place! (I do recommend using a primer, though). I think they were very smart to include this as the featured beauty item in this welcome box!

Swatched below:


And this box has an unexpected bonus item as well:


Haloween nail decals! I’m normally not much of a nail decal wearer, but these are so fun! Here is one off the sheet:


FYI – be careful when removing these off the sheet, they are pretty delicate.

Verdict: I think this Welcome Box is a great way to try out Julep products and the Maven experience. I really like the little booklet they include so that you have all the information upfront. The retail value is great too – about $58.

(If you’re interested in trying out Julep products but don’t want to try a subscription yet, I also recommend their monthly mystery boxes, or swapping for a few Julep products!)

  1. Not generally a big fan of polish subs since I don’t like polishing my own nails- However, wow! nice combo of polishes- the silver is beautiful and the other colors are great too. Nice box, really nice.
