  1. Just got my 8pc box today with different colors, all beautiful that fit my skin tone! In love!

  2. So this promotion came out the day after I decided to subscribe to Julep. I emailed customer service to see if they would still honor it, but they would not. Then, I got my welcome box in the mail and it was a huge box (pretty sure a pair of boots could have fit inside) so I was pretty excited…until I opened it to find 1 polish and the Konjac sponge. When I called customer service to ask if that was all I was supposed to get, they said I should have gotten one other polish and they are sending that now. Are the boxes always this disappointing? And does customer service ever do anything to entice you to stay, like Birchbox?

  3. I just received my gift set in the mail today. The colors pictured are the same ones I got. They also sent an additional item – a liquid eyeliner in Jet Black, which I thought was an unexpectedly classy move. I swatched everything and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of their formulas! Julep definately got off on the right foot with me!

    • Yay! Happy to hear it! 🙂

  4. My 3 months pre-paid just ended. So can I call to cancel then reactivate and get this? Or is this for new subscribers only? Thanks!

    • I just use a different email, used my maiden name and had it sent to my in-laws instead

  5. I just subscribed today, will I get my first box along with the 8 piece gift set I used the code for or will I have to wait till may, I thought it was this month but certain things in my account are making me think otherwise. I don’t want to wait a month to recieve my first box.

  6. Does anyone know how the monthly option works with this code… will it then lead me to pick my products, or do I have to wait till next month? Or maybe I just get surprised? I am seeing the 8 piece gift applied and then just a blanket “Monthly subscription @ $24.99/month.”

    • I was wondering the same thing, I don’t want to wait till may for my first box, I am gonna call and find out instead of email, when I know I will reply and let you know.

    • I just called, and they said that the 8 piece gift set would be sent out as soon as it is processed, and the first Maven Box will be sent in may, and from the 20th-24th is where you select what’s in your bix, and they charge the monthly subscription fee the 27th of the month. Hope this helps.

      • Thanks for checking up on this. I subscribed and assumed I’d get the April box, without being able to customize my it – which kinda bummed me out. Totally cool that we’ll get our gift set right away, and I don’t mind waiting til April 20-24 to pick items for my first box!

      • Awesome, thanks for checking – this definitely helps! Although $24.99 for the 8 items + a surprise box is still a great deal, being able to customize the box is even better! Thanks again!

  7. Does anyone one if I can skip months if I buy the 3 month prepaid sub? or do I have to use them all in a row? Like, can I get April then skip May and still have 2 credits?

    • You can skip months. I do the 3 months prepaid so I get the $20 a month pricing. I have the option to skip in my account although I haven’t actually slipped yet.

  8. Ugh!! I’m so tempted but I am soooo overloaded with beauty product? Decisions, decisions

  9. Now this is a deal!!

  10. I’ve been holding off on subscribing because I can’t see the alternatives. I don’t know what I would do with 3-4 polishes each month. Would love to know if we can get other things monthly. I was put off with the March green polish set.

    • You can customize your box more later and what you don’t like, you can always trade. I really do like their makeup, it’s nice quality and a decent selection. This is one of my favorite subscriptions.

    • I don’t sub right now because I had to cut back plus I placed a BIG order during the holiday sales at the end of last year, but I really like a lot of Julep products and very rarely got nail polish in my monthly sub! I LOVE their gel eyeliners and have about a dozen (I do recommend the sharpener that was made for them though because a regular sharpener is too “hard” on the softer gel), I have a blush stick that I like, I’m currently using their cleansing oil which is pretty good… their konjac sponge is good, and their emery board is my favorite! Seriously, the one side is perfect for filing my finger nails gently yet thoroughly. I also like their nail polish remover wipes.

      Anyway, Just look at all the products available for purchase on the Julep web-site to see what might be available for your monthly sub box options. Yes, each month they decide which ones you can swap for your “assigned” box but I always found the selection to be broad and varied so that I could always find something that I wanted to try.

    • I’m not getting a single polish in my subscription next month – instead I’m getting skin care products and makeup. Also, you can skip any month you don’t want.

  11. Can you cancel at any time after receiving the gift box and your first mthly box?

    • Yes, I’ve cancelled before. Just call, it’s easy.

  12. Kind of bummed, I just subscribed last week and got the spring break gift. Not my colors at all! Would have preferred this gift, oh well :/

    • If it’s any consolation, Julep often do a switcheroo, and send you nail colors different from those in the picture that entices the sign-up.

      • Let’s hope so! Lol. Either way, free is free I guess, just won’t get much use.
