Julep Maven is a nail polish and beauty box. Every month you have a choice between several curated style profiles or you can customize your box. If you’d like to customize your box, I suggest signing up for a 3 month prepaid subscription! Julep Maven is one of my favorite subscription boxes for a few reasons. Every month they create and release a new line of polish, all built around a theme. I think it’s a great idea. Also, I’m a big fan of the fact that their polish formulas are vegan, and 5-free.
For October, they introduced The Black Magic Collection.
I’ll admit, I was underwhelmed by this collection. I guess I was expecting something more “Halloween-y” for October. Most of the collection looked similar to other colors that I already have. Since I’m not lucky enough to have a skipable My Maven account, I was still able to select a few colors that I liked enough to customize into my box.
Julep Maven subscription details:
The Cost: $24.99 a month ($19.99 a month with a 3-month subscription). Both options are customizable for new Mavens. I totally recommend the 3-month subscription. That’s what I have, and I love being able to pick exactly what I want, and getting the lowest price.
The Products: Nail polish and beauty items.
Ships to: US and Canada
Here’s the first look inside my October Julep Maven Box.
Here are the colors that I selected this month.
Nancy – (Value $14) – From Julep: Silvery sage metallic.
- I love this color. It depends on the light but sometimes it leans silver, other times it leans green. It’s really pretty!
Ledi – (Value $14) – From Julep: Black pearl shimmer
- My collection was lacking in black, so I was happy to add this shimmery black shade to the mix.
Julep Lip Gloss- (Value $20) – I selected the color “Polished”
- I had never tried Julep’s lip glosses, and was excited to try them. They released two new shades, and I selected “Polished” as you see in the pic above. The finish is actually a little more pink than the picture suggests, but I still kind of wish I had selected the other new shade. Oh well, I’m sure I’ll pick that one up later.
I chose the following as ad-ons:
Queen Ann – (Value $14 – added on for $4.99) – Lilac confetti microglitter
Misti – (Value $14 – added on for $4.99) – From Julep: Smoky blue-grey crème
Cat Nail Decals – these were part of the Halloween theme, and aren’t actually offered for sale on the site (as far as I can tell). They’re super cute!
Because I purchased three add-ons, I received a beauty freebie. They sent:
Catrina – (Value $14) – From Julep: Marigold yellow crème
Teri – (Value $14) – From Julep: Tropical coral pink crème
- This is way prettier in person then the swatches on their site suggest. I had been wanting a pretty coral pink color, and am really happy this was part of the bonus this month.
So that was my box this month!
If you’re new to Julep Maven, don’t forget to use code FREEBOX to receive your welcome box for free (you just pay for shipping or get free shipping when you sign up for a 3 month subscription).
I subscribed for another three months, so I’m looking forward to seeing what November and December have in store. I have high hopes for some really pretty finishes and festive colors!
