Julep Maven Review & Free Box Coupon Code – October 2017
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 $24.99 a month.
And, if you sign up for 3-months up front, you get the $19.99 rate.
Each month Julep releases a new collection on the 20th, and you can decide which items you want, you can upgrade to the entire collection, or you can skip that month.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Each box comes with a card detailing the new beauty launches:
And each month they include a little bonus item like a piece of candy:
Personally, I would love if they brought back the stickers they featured last month and gave us a new set in every box!
Now, for the items I picked this month:
Julep Nail Polish in Dot – Retail Value $14
Julep describes this shade as a “Celestial Blue-Violet Glitter.”
It’s sparkly and dark – perfect for Halloween!
Julep Nail Polish in Johnny – Retail Value $14
This is a true black creme polish with a high shine finish. Normally I stick to pale neutral colors, but with Julep’s October collection, I thought it was time to go all in and embrace the dark side!
I got full coverage with one coat, and two coats for somewhat full coverage on the glitter polish:
I went with a glitter polish accent nail and spooky stickers on the black nails!
Halloween Decals – Value $6
If you like the look of nail art, but you are a terrible artist (me), these are for you! They’re easy to apply (just like stickers), and you can seal them with top coat.
This eyeshadow stick has a smudger on one side and a glide-on eyeshadow on the other side:
This goes on so smoothly, the pigment is fantastic, the shimmer is nice and subtle, and it has great staying power, too.
Here it is swatched:
Verdict: I’m happy with all my choices this month! I definitely have enough neutral nail polishes in my collection, so it was nice to branch out with dark colors for October. This box has a retail value of $52, and I think that’s a great deal for a $24.99 box you can completely customize.
I highly recommend this subscription if you love nail polish and/or you like having control over your beauty box items! (And I also recommend doing the 3-month subscription at $19.99 a month for better savings!)
To Wrap Up:
