Julep Maven is a monthly beauty box full of their own brand of cosmetics and nail polishes. You can take the box they select or trade out items and colours to get exactly what you want each month. You also get access to their online store before anyone else each month and can add on any amount of extras you want (paying for them on top of your box of course). When you sign up you take a little quiz so they get to know your likes and can curate your box just for you. All items in the box are full sized. Boxes start at $24.99 a month but they do go down if you pick a longer plan. They are also always giving away something for joining so make sure you look around a bit first. I got a set of items worth $112.00 for free! I have waited quite a while before joining this one as they mostly are nail polish and I don’t need anymore of that but since you can customize your box I was able to reduce the polish and up the makeup.
They really love them some purple at Julep and it makes it fun. I must have missed the email telling me about my box this month so I didn’t get to switch out any items. I don’t really want more nail polish so that makes me sad but this polish is very good and doesn’t chip for a long time. I am slightly confused though because when I check my account none of this is what it says I was receiving this month.
When Pencil Met Gel in Gilded Gold Shimmer-$12.80
“A waterproof eye pencil with the formula of a gel eyeliner that glides on smoothly without tugging or skipping. Sets in 30 seconds and provides 10+ hours of wear. Ophthalmologist tested.” I love love love these liners so I’m happy to get another one. They really are smudge-proof. I can rub it and rub it and it never moves. Best liner ever!
Wonder Maven Polish in Shirley-$11.20
This is a gray/army green shade with gold micro shimmer. It is a colour that I can easily wear to the office and have it look professional. It’s probably not something I would have chosen for myself but I kinda like it.
Wonder Maven Polish is Meredith-$11.20
This is a pale teal shade with just a hint of shimmer. This is very much one I would pick out and I think it’ll be on my fingers pretty soon.
This was my third Julep Maven box and for not choosing the items, I’m happy with it. I love the liner. The items had a value of $35.20 and I used the Maven pricing, which is better than regular retail. If you want to try them out or really like nail polish, click here to visit their site.
