Last week I received my Julep box, and I was very excited about all of it’s latest goodies. I actually love the colors as well as the “extras”. Julep Maven is a monthly subscription box that cost $20 per month. Each month you receive a goodie box of Julep products that consist of 2 nail polishes plus another item that can either be another nail polish or a beauty item such a a lotion or mascara. The items are promised to be a value of $40 or more. The items that are sent to you are based on a quiz that you take that makes you out to be one of four categories. You are sent an email the 20th of each month that gives you a preview of what is coming next month and you have between the 24-27th to change what you would like to another of the categories, send it to a friend or simply cancel that month. On top of the subscription you receive 20% off all of their items and free shipping for being a member and every month you can have add on’s to your box for a low as $5.
This month they sent 2 nail colors, a nail treatment, a special top coat, an eye lash curler and some heart shaped chocolates!
The colors that were featured in the Boho Glam box were Julianne, which was a blue grey color, and Ingrid, a burnt orange color. Both are lovely, though I will likely used the Ingrid in the fall more than any other season.
Value: $14 each
There was also a Oxygen Nail Treatment bottle which is said to be complete nail care and make-up all in one bottle. Made with a patented Hexanal formulation, nails are restructured to a stronger, thicker, and smoother condition in just one stroke. I have yet to try it, so I am not sure how well it works. Also included as a bonus is Julep’s new Freedom Polymer Top Coat. It is suppose to leave a gel like look, but cures in natural light and in about 5 minutes. I recently used it with my latest manicure and it is actually lasting much longer!
Value: $18 each
The last item is a bonus beauty item of a small cute eyelash curler with some tips on how to use it. Perfect to just throw into your purse or makeup bag on the go. It is made out of plastic and easy to use. I tried it and it works well similar to regular metal eyelash curlers.
Overall I was very happy with this box. The colors were nice and the treatment and top coat were excellent. The eyelash curler was also a nice extra. The box was well worth more than the $20 spent.
Below is my first use of the Julianne nail color with the Freedom Polymer Top coat. The color is nice for the season and easily goes with many of my outfits. The top coat gives it a nice shine and I have lasted a full 3 days without having it chip.
