{Julep} Cupid’s Mystery Clutch

Julep was my very first subscription box that I received and it got me hooked. Last spring there was a huge shipping fiasco with Julep and I stopped ordering their Maven Box. I am still a Maven, its just that I skip the months I am not interested in. The last mystery box that I ordered from Julep was a huge flop. I have since learned to wait for people to start posting about the mystery boxes before I place an order. So on the bus ride home I researched everyone’s reviews and by night fall my little fingers hit complete order. I needed the clutch in my life and I could not wait for it to arrive.

Cupid’s Mystery Box got a sassy upgrade this year. Rock your date night with $100+ of beauty goods and nail color including the snowy heart glitter top coat Yuki (Classic with a Twist), and pink chevron glitter top coat va-va-Valentina (Bombshell). Julep was selling the box for $24.99 which is a heck of a deal! To make that deal even sweeter I used the code CONGRATS and got a free bonus wedding duo. The duo was valued at $25.00 and it came in this cute little pink box. I am not getting married anytime soon, but the colors were to pretty to pass up, plus it was free.

The Polish:

Yuki: snowy heart glitter top coat

Valentina: pink chevron glitter top coat

Joanne: Smoky plum crème

Rochelle: Boysenberry shimmer

Margit: Mushroom with rose shimmer

The Beauty:

Julep Lip Gloss in Splendid: Sheer heirloom rose shimmer, with Power Cell Complex

Julep Gel Eye Glider in Smoky Plum: The waterproof formula glides on, sets in 30 seconds, and then stays put.

I am so glad that I took the plunge and purchased the mystery clutch. All of the colors go together nicely and the beauty products were fantastic. I hope that this box means that Julep is stepping up the quality of their mystery boxes. If it is a sign, I will definitely be purchasing more in the future.

{Julep Maven} The Dramatic Collection – February 2014

Julep has quickly become one of my favorite companies and every month I find myself stocking their Facebook page for sneak peeks. The February Maven Box sneak peek did not disappoint, it literally sent me over the moon and made my little heart pitter-patter. Each month Julep puts together a collection of their newest polish colors, along with innovative beauty and skin/hair care products. February’s beauty product was the new Julep Eye Sheen, a liquid eye shadow that comes in four colors.

What made the February box special was the fact that you got to pick the color of your eye shadow that came in your box. The polish colors were set in stone by style profile, if you didn’t like what was in your box, you could pick a different one and then chose your shadow color. I decided to leave the modern beauty box behind and went for a classic with a twist box. Mainly because they Modern Beauty box contained a liquid eyeliner, I’d never use it, I don’t do eyeliner. However I do like pretty polish on my toes and what can I say “I am an eye shadow whore.” It’s true I am.

So what did I in my February Julep Maven box?” Oh I am so glad you asked! Let’s find out!

Octavia – Smoky indigo crème

Everyone’s February Maven box included a gift from Jane the companies founder. Which was Love – a full-coverage gold, pearl & fuchsia micro glitter.

This month I decided to cash in some of my Jules. Jules are points that you earn for taking your monthly box and for making purchases on Julep.com. You can use your Jules to purchase additional add on items for your box or if you get 2,000 Jules you can get a free maven box. I’ve yet to reach 2,000 Jules, mainly because I always cash them in for an extra nail polish or other item that I want. I decided to add on Glam Roc a midnight purple & gold stardust polish.

All in all February’s box was awesome and I got a new eye shadow to add to my collection.

Julep Maven is a $19.99/month monthly nail polish & Beauty box subscription service. Each box features over $40.00 worth of never before released polishes, cutting edge treatments, and a bonus sample sized product.
