Julep Maven American Beauty Introductory Box Review

Hey guys!

Today I will be reviewing the Introductory Julep Maven American Beauty Box. What is Julep, you ask?

The Julep Maven program is a monthly subscription service that features nail polish and occasionally other beauty products. To get started, simply go to the Julep home page and take the style quiz. From there, you can sign up to start receiving your monthly box! The boxes are $19.99 per month but are valued at around $40 or more per month. On top of that, you get 20% off any purchases made through the Maven boutique and free shipping on all orders!

On the 20th of each month, you will get an email letting you know what is in your box for the month. If you do not like the box contents, you can select a different style, or skip that month altogether! You can also forward the box to a friend if it's something you think your friend will like :-)

The boxes are shipped on the 25th of each month and are always very well packaged. There is usually some sort of candy or treat in the package, and who doesn't love that??

The Maven boxes receive a welcome letter, explaining a little bit about Julep and the program. 

Also included is a notecard that describes the polishes you received that month and tips for different nail art, etc. on the back. 

The extra this month was toe separators. Cute! 

The Best Pedi Creme Ever! is also featured this month. This creme has an earthy scent, almost like fresh cut grass or straw, but I love that smell! I know that is not the best way to describe it and it probably sounds really weird, but that's what I was thinking when I was applying the lotion, lol. 

This month's polishes were Renee and Eva. Renee is a light lavender purple creme. This was two easy coats, with no top coat. In my experience, Julep has a pretty stellar formula; no streaking, pooling, etc.

I love this color and immediately thought of my friend Renee who LOOOVVEESSS purple! It's like it was made for her, lol!

Next is Eva, a delicious raspberry creme. Again, two lovely coats, with no top coat. I like pink even though I don't usually wear it that often but this color is right up my alley. 

If you decide to join Julep, use the code MAVENINTRO to get your first box for only $0.01!

And don't forget to enter the giveaway Julep is sponsoring! It ends July 30th!
