I’ve been hearing mixed reviews regarding the Julep Maven program and was hesitant to join…but ultimately decided that I wanted to judge for myself. In case you don’t know what it is, the Julep Maven program is similar to Jewelmint, Shoemint, and Birchbox where you pay a monthly fee and receive nail polish and nail related products each month.
First, you take a quick quiz so that they can determine your style type, and each month you will be sent the box that corresponds with that particular style. Based on the test I took, it was determined that I was a Bombshell, which is no surpise! Just kidding…Lol! So I went ahead and ordered my first Bombshell box in January (I only paid $5 for the first box based on a promotion they had going on at the time). Carrie is a nice baby pink (a little streaky with the first coat) and Megan is a beautifully understated turqouise blue with some shimmers in it:

I didn’t like the Bombshell box for February so I opted for the Boho Glam box, which included a gorgeous blue (Marisa), and a “Oscar” gold glitter. The blue looks even more gorgeous in person, and I was excited about the glitter since I don’t own any gold glitter polishes:

I am only two months in, but I haven’t had any problems with Julep thus far. The boxes include $40 worth of product and your monthly subscription price is $19.99, which isn’t a bad deal if you are into nail polish. Keep in mind that the nail polish bottles are smaller than the average bottle of nail polish and can be a bit pricey. Their polishes normally retail for $14, but as a Maven you can get them for $11.20 with free shipping. Actually, all of their products will be 20% off if you join.
I haven’t use the products enough to tell you if they are worth it or not but I will definitely provide you all with an update once I’ve gotten around to trying a number of them. In the meantime, go to their site and just check it out…they have a wide range of colors available and each month you will get colors that haven’t been released yet. No pressure! Lol…but if you would like to sign up for the program, you can use my affiliate link here and use the referral code SHAREONFB to get your first box for $1).
Hope this was informative…and Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone!! XOXO
*Please Note: I’ll include swatches of these colors in my next nail polish haul…
