My February 2014 Julep Maven box arrived yesterday and I think I was even more excited to get this one than I have been to get the full collections I have been getting lately.
If you aren’t familiar with Julep, they offer the latest in nail color trends and beauty innovations delivered to your door each month. Boxes are $19.99 and promise a value of $40 or more. You can pick which profile suits you best, but you can also easily switch between them if you see colors in a different style profile you like more.
Julep ships via USPS First Class Mail. I think my package took three days to arrive to me? Not too bad, although I thought they used Priority Mail in the past? Does anyone know if that’s juts for the full collections or did they change things up this month?
The first look was amazing! I had forgotten I had ordered a new add-ons (two polishes and swatch stickers) this month, so it was even more exciting than I first thought.
The February 2014 Julep Maven selection was “The Dramatic Collection” which is full of “glitz, glam and drama”. I opted for the “Classic With A Twist” Collection this month which included the following:
~Octavia (Classic with a Twist) ($14 / $11.20): Octavia is a smoky indigo crème. Sometimes I see more blue when I look at it. Sometimes I see more purple. I suppose that’s what indigo is though! Great color. Not super dark, but dark enough for me.
~Greta (Classic with a Twist) ($14 / $11.20): Great is a loganberry multidimensional micro glitter and is the entire reason I opted for Classic With A Twist this month. It’s gorgeous. Perfect for Valentine’s Day and beyond. So so so gorgeous. Did I mention I liked this one?
~Love (Bombshell) ($14 / $11.20): Love is a full-coverage gold, pearl & fuchsia micro glitter. If I am not mistaken, Love was a gift from Julep this month that all subscribers got in their box. It’s a good thing because I would have done whatever it took to get this one too! Another gorgeous color! Oh, and the cap on this one is gold unlike any Julep polish cap I have ever seen. It’s my phone case that’s making it look chevron ;).
~Eye Sheen Liquid Eyeshadow (Deep Bronze Shimmer) ($18 / $14.40): I opted for the Deep Bronze Shimmer which is gorgeous, but I totally wish I would have gotten that cool shader brush as well. I love the liquid shadow may end up getting a few more because I think they are so fun.
~Cameron (Boho Glam) and Glam Roc (It Girl): I just couldn’t resist these two colors. Glam Roc is a midnight purple & gold stardust (matte glitter), while Cameron is a silver lilac stardust (matte glitter). Both are equally gorgeous and I look forward to testing them out this week!
All totaled, not including my Add-Ons, my February 2014 Julep Maven “Classic With A Twist” box had a value of $60 (or $48 if you are using Maven pricing)! The box itself was $19.95 which works out to about $5 per item which is a great deal (as always).
