Julep Maven Review

After browsing the interwebs for a bit looking for something new and something different I stumbled upon a subscription service called Julep Maven. Like most beauty boxes for a small fee (19.99$ a month + free shipping) you can receive a box packed with goodies.

Unlike most beauty boxes this isn't a sample box. You will receive full sized nail polishes along with other products such as lotion, lip balm, nail art, and even sometimes candy! Being a Maven also entitles you to 20% off everything in the julep store.

Signing up is easy. You take a quick style quiz to determine your style. Once your style is determined you can purchase 3 months 6 months or 12 months. Best of all if you join now and enter color2012 your first box is just a penny!

Each nail polish retails for 14$ and is sold in Saphora. This box is with well over 19.99$.

But wait! There's more! Every now and then a mystery box is offered for 19.99 (60 for non mavens) which includes 60-200$ worth of products! I ordered my first one last week, review to follow when it arrives.

I decided to try two boxes for a proper review

Box 1: Bombshell (Best pedi cream ever, Oscar - gold glitter, Natasha - intense orange)

Packaging 5/5
Loved how neat the box was. The intro card with information on your colors.
Products: 4/5
Who doesn't love a nice gold glitter? Or a bright orange for the summer? The best pedi cream is soft and really works. I wish it was larger.
Customer service 5/5
Quick and polite.
Quality 5/5
You get more than what you pay for. Great colour pay off. Dries even. Coats well.
Overall rating
4.8/5- You get more than what you pay for, amazing color selection, random extras, and wonderful customer service. Must have for any nail polish lover.

 Oscar tips on Natasha.

Box 2: Classic with a Twist (best pedi cream ever, Susie - mint green, Niecy- bright pink)

Product 4/5
Love the pink it's perfect for summer. And the mint is so bright it will look perfect on tanned hands and pale skin. These colours are opaque and dry quick. Very high quality.

So if this got you as excited as it got me sign up here
Julep Maven

I plan to swatch these colors soon!
