  1. Just got my Fall box, identical contents to those listed above. With the free konjac sponge, total value is $114. I’m delighted with everything in this box! (3 polishes, brow gel, eyeshadow stick, and lip mousse.) All awesome wearable colors.

  2. Did anyone get the summer box? I’m curious what was in it. I saw a video for the fall one.

  3. Has anyone gotten their box yet? I’m curious.

  4. Has anyone gotten their box yet?

  5. anyone get their box yet???

    • Marissa, see below, didn’t see I had tapped wrong reply tab until after it posted…

  6. Julep mystery boxes are ALWAYS worth it! I got the fall one, hoping for some nice dark colors, release my inner goth kid. I’ve been doing bright silly nails and makeup all summer, I’m ready to get serious again!

    • Got Fall All The Way:

      *Nail polish in Darby (Huntsman green micro glitter shimmer), Cheyenne (Auburn matte metallic), and Judy (Moonbeam iridescent chrome)
      *It’s Whipped Matte Lip Mousse in Kiss Me
      *Eyeshadow 101 Creme-to-Powder Eyeshadow Stick in Warm Gold Shimmer
      *Lock Down Your Brows Iconic Brow Gel in clear

      Great box, color curation is spot-on for fall. A great value for me as I will use everything but Darby.

  7. I really want to get one of these, but i wish there was a product spoiler of at least one item each. The yellow makes me think its gonna have that goopy yellow creme polish (no thanks) in the summer box, and seeing as ive gotten like 3 Fearless lip glosses from mystery boxes / item deal things, I expect that too. So Im leaning Autumn, but… I’m very fair and that theme tends to go very brown. And those tones always make me look overdone or longing for terrible 90s beauty choices. Fingers crossed though!

    • I wish there had been a spoiler too. I am very happy with both the spring and fall collections, but had their been a spoiler I wouldn’t have purchased a dupe shade in my addons for my September box. One of the summer colors, Kaitlyn, was also an offering for the addons, and I loved it so I got it, not knowing it was already en route to me. Oh, well, I generally give my boss my nail color dupes (and my makeup loving friends my makeup dupes). So boss will be happy.

  8. What can I expect from the seasonal boxes? some polishes with that season’s colors and what else?

  9. FREEKONJAC is still working for me for a free konjac sponge. I added the mystery box and sponge and the code worked then. I did have to be logged in for it to work.

    • Thanks for the code, it worked for me too!

    • I could not get this code to work for me last night or this morning. I tried on my Android and now my desktop at work. 🙁

      • Make sure you add the konjac to your cart first, then apply the code.

    • Thank you for the code! I would never have tried this item otherwise, so curious if it really works! 🙂

  10. This month, the maven boxes didn’t have a coupon that could be shared. Instead, we got a one time use 20% off at ULTA or on Julep products only. It’s a promo for the new ulta-exclusive product line julep has just released. I’m not gonna use mine, if anyone wants it.

    • Did your box have candy? I didn’t get any candy.

      • Nope, no candy. However, when I called to confirm that we don’t get the Maven discount on (we don’t, which I expected), I also asked if this was gonna be a new thing, coupons like this. I made sure they knew that I, as a maven, would not like to see too many coupons like that in my box. The CS two said, no, they were just “changing it up” a little bit.

        • I just canceled my account at the end of July and rolled my eyes when that coupon showed up in the box. We lose our Maven discount to go shop at the Ulta store(which I assume does not have the same spend $10 get free shipping policy?) which only has a few items that are exclusive to Ulta? Plus, we lose add-ons? No thanks. Tossed it in the trash.

          I had a 6 month subscription and only ever got candy twice. Was I supposed to get it more often? My stomach needs to know. 🙂

          • I haven’t been subbed to Julep for a few months, but I was subbed for 6 months last year, and 3 months this year, and it was pretty typical for them to throw in a random (but yummy) piece of candy in each box. I always thought it was pretty cute, and fun to see what type of candy I got. Although, one of the months I subbed this year they sent everyone a free polish instead of a piece of candy which was pretty cool.

            Also, I got that same 20% off of a Julep purchase at Ulta recently, but in an email from Ulta. I printed it, but doubt I’ll use it, since I know I could get a much better deal on Julep’s site, plus I plan on re-subscribing anyways in a few months.

          • I got candy a few times, but there were a couple months where they tossed in an extra product. One month it was decals, and another, like Ann said, it was a free polish.

          • I ordered a box for my birthday, but I was already thinking of cancelling before I received it because I’ve been skipping most months. The lack of candy and useless (to me) coupon pushed me over the edge and I cancelled. Julep has some good products, but I will survive without them.

  11. I have mine set to polish only and I got two polish and a lip product…. does anyone know why that is?

    • I don’t have an answer for you as to why you didn’t get all polishes but I can tell you there’s a window of time every month where you can totally customize your box. The 20th-25th I believe (someone correct me if I’m wrong).

      Log in and you can pick exactly what you want in your box from practically everything in their current product line up.

      • It’s the 20th -24th.

        I love being able to fully customize my box. I very rarely like their featured collection so this is great for me.

        I’ve been Maven since 2013 and I would have unsubscribed ages ago if not for both the customization feature and the option to skip months as often as I would like. Plus, their customer service is great!

    • You got a curated box. Every month, based on your profile, one of the curated boxes is selected for you. You can change things in and out of that box, or you can make your own custom box. The edit window is the 20th to 24th of each month.

      The Maven box has a value ceiling, so, when you are customizing your box, the items on the selection menu fall away as your box value climbs. It can pay off to try a few combinations, because when you get to the point where all remaining items on the selection menu have a value greater than the amount you are under the limit, everything disappears. You can sometimes get greater value if you rearrange things a little.

  12. Does anyone know a code to add a free polish with it please?

    • Polishgift

      For new subscribers, you get a full size 12 piece julep nail polish set.

  13. Dang, it’s so hard to resist those things! I’ve been really happy with the past few I’ve gotten.

  14. Is this going to be a one time purchase only when I order this

    • Yep. Mystery boxes are one time purchases. 🙂
