What: Julep Maven. Julep is a mainly a nail polish brand, but they also sell make-up and beauty products.
Cost: They have a monthly subscription box for $24.99 per month, or $19.99 with a 3 month package. (great deal since their nail polish retails for $14.00) You get 3-5 items each month and can choose from a set collection, or swap out items to make your own box. You can also skip the month if there isn’t anything you want.
While I really like their nail polishes (they are vegan and 5-free), I have come to love their make-up and skin care products. (specifically their lip crayons, gel eye liners, and hand-crème). Since I’m good on nail polish, I swapped out for 2 different items this month. They also sent a bonus item for Valentine’s day- a sparkly, glittery color called “Hartleigh” that has little red hearts in it. (cute- but just not really my style. I think it’s a valuable bonus item and will make a great gift for someone)
Here’s what was included in my box:
- Colton Nail Polish ($14)- This was really hard to photograph, but is a really, really dark purple. It’s described on their site as a “black iris crème”
- Hartleigh Nail Polish ($11.20)- the free bonus item I described above. It’s a holographic heart glitter top coat
- Julep Fan Brush ($16)- Designed for highlighting, this was a brush I didn’t already have in my collection. It appears to be good quality and has a nice weight to it
- Plush Pout Lip Crayon- Almond Nude. ($19.20) I have all the other colors and LOVE them. They are moisturizing, long-lasting and have excellent pigment
Opinion: All in all, I think I got some great stuff for only $19.99! (I’m on the multi-month plan)
