Julep Maven Review- Boho Glam Box December 2013

julep 6

So, as much as I was trying to quit Julep because it was just too much nail polish for this once-every-two-weeks toenail polish girl, I am really starting to love it.  The packaging is always great, the nail colors are original and fun, and the extras are awesome to keep or give as gifts. Plus, now that I am using Julep to collect the nail polishes for the gift bags for my annual girls’ getaway, it has a whole new purpose! Julep rocks!

Julep is a monthly box that is $19.99 and always features at least two nail polish colors, as well as other beauty items. It always comes early in the month. Here are the goods for December:

This month, I got the Boho Glam box in the mail, although, I am a little confused because I elected to receive the It Girl box for this month. When I looked in my account online, there was no mention of the December Boho Glam box, and the It Girl box says it is still pending. Did I miss something? Did I get an extra box by mistake? I’m not sure, but this is a great box, too. I will contact them to find out what the deal is, but in the meantime, here are the details:

The two polishes I got are:

Joelle: ($11.20 sale price) A silver glitter polish.

Dianna: ($11.20 sale price) A dusty teal creme polish

I love both of these colors, but will probably add them to my stash for girls’ trip. And now for the extras:

Julep Sweep Eyeshadow Palette in Neutrals: ($19.20 sale price)This is a great palette for everyday wear. It is actually really similar to the Urban Decay Naked palette I use on a regular basis, so this one may get relegated to my gym bag. It is nice to have doubles of your daily items so that you are always packed to go to the gym without having to search for anything.  That helps me get my butt out the door and into the pool or spin class.

Julep also included two twist bands ($4.80) this month, along with a 40% off coupon for your entire purchase at Julep.com. That is a great deal.

All told, the Julep box value was more than twice the cost, and the colors and items are great. I am loving me some Julep right now.
