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 any more of that but since you can customise your box I was able to reduce the polish and up the makeup.
This box was a mistake on their part to me. I had cancelled my plan after my six months was up and received a confirmation email saying that had happened. Shortly after that, I received the email saying my plan had shipped and I had been charged for another term. A quick email to them had it all straightened out but this was already on it’s way to me and so now I got a bonus box!
The box only had a couple of items in it. One of them looks really exciting though so I’m not complaining. They have a card with info on the new item they sent out this month and a discount code.
Your Lip Addiction Tinted Lip Oil Treatment in Obsessed-$17.60
This is a lip gloss that heals and hydrates as you wear it. It has just a soft hint of colour, the one I got is red, but you can get two other shades or just clear. It does not make my lips sticky at all. The only complaint I have it that it does have a bit of an oily taste and that’s not so pleasant. Boost Your Radiance Reparative Rosehip Seed Facial Oil-$28.80
This oil is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars, and hyperpigmentation. It absorbed nice and quick and left my skin feeling nice. I have slowly given over to using oils on my face, even though it sounds counterintuitive to everything I normally do to remove oil from my skin.
The treat this month was a Tootsie Roll. I’m okay with that.
The items had a value of $46.40 and I used the Maven pricing, which is better than regular retail. I won’t be renewing but that’s just so I can try new things, not because I didn’t like the items included. If you want to try them out or really like nail polish, click here to visit their site.
