Julep – March 2013 It Girl Maven Box Review

This month’s Julep box was a little different for me as I went with the It Girl box instead of my usual Boho Glam. I was not as interested in the beauty products so I took having 3 nail colors instead of the lotion that they were offering. 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.

So as I mentioned before this month they sent 3 nail colors plus a surprise extra of strawberry lip balm. Julep It Girl Maven Box SONY DSC

The colors that were featured in the It Girl box were Simone, which was a lillac color, Shenae, a minty green shimmery color and Teri, a soft pastel coral color. All of them were a pastel chalky kind of pallet that are perfect for spring.

The bonus beauty item this month was a very practical strawberry flavored pink tinted lip balm. It is a nice size, but thin enough to be able to able to carry around with you, either stashed in your purse or in your pocket. It goes on very creamy and keeps your lips super moist. I used it one day walking around Boston and it was very nice to have handy.

This was a good box with colors that are pleasing to the eye and a useful beauty product that I will actually use. The value of the box came out to about $48 which is worth the cost of the subscription.

I have tried using the Simone and Shenae colors on my nails, but I am finding them to be very goupy and hard to control. I actually gave up on the Simone because I was always getting built up areas of polish. The Shanae was better, but still the same consistency. I was able to get a good coat below and I finished it off with the Julep Freedom Polymer Coat on top! Perfect for St. Paddy’s day coming up.
