Julep Maven Subscription Box

I absolutely love subscription boxes. I love getting little surprises in the mail, who doesn’t? So I joined Julep Maven because the first box is free (just use code: FREEBOX). I figured I couldn’t go wrong! There is almost always a code for a free first box, so don’t pay for it! You can always cancel if you don’t like what you get.

What you get:
You get first access to the latest color trends and beauty innovations.
You get flexibility to customize your monthly box.
You get exclusive benefits, like free shipping and 20% off at
You get over $40 in value in each box (or try Maven Luxe to get over $60 value).

How Julep Maven Works:
Choose your favorite welcome box.
Add some of the best sellers at special intro-only prices.
Get excited! You can start enjoying the rest of your Maven perks right away.

When you first sign up, you will take a style quiz. At the end, they tell you what they think your style is. You can also look at all the styles and choose which one you feel fits you most. They will send you a box based on these styles. For my first box, I got “It Girl”.  (See below for the different style profiles)

My first box arrived, and in it were three pretty colors of nail polish, two little spongy filing squares (I suspect were a free sample gift) and a welcome booklet with information on Julep products, etc. It also came with a coupon code for 50% my first order from I actually ended up placing an order right away after getting my box! I absolutely loved all the colors they offer and some of the other products they have caught my eye.

The three colors I got were: Kam – A sort of pastel green color, Princess Grace – What seems to be a pastel peachy color, and Margaret – A pretty pastel blue color. I was pretty happy with these colors.

I also want to note that these nail polishes are made in the USA, are Vegan, and Cruelty free. They also have this information on the packaging of the polish: They have the strengthing power of Hexanal, Even color distribution and superior coverage, Oxygen technology that lets nails breathe, and Antioxidants from pure green coffee extract. I can honestly say I haven’t noticed that on a nail polish before!
Here’s a photo of what I got

I tried out the polishes right away to see how they worked for me. I found that they were easy to apply, had very nice coverage (I still needed a second coat), and lasted me quite a while before chipping – several days. I actually was trying to get it to chip, and couldn’t. I love that the polish has such bold pigmentation and covers so nicely. Most polishes are not quite as smooth and easy to apply. The polish also comes of easily and clean with nail polish remover.

So Maven also has a monthly Maven review where you can preview your box, try a new style, upgrade, add extras, or even send your box to a friend (no extra charge)! I love that you are able to see what your next box will be and even change it if you want. Now that is fantastic! If you love what they show you, you don’t need to make any changes. The monthly Maven Reveal is on the 20th-24th each month. On the 27th of each month, they will start shipping boxes. And on the 1st, there is a Secret Store that opens – it’s an exclusive perk for Mavens who took the last box.  

The different style profiles include:
It Girl – A natural trendsetter who’s not afraid to be bold. You love cutting-edge colors and finishes that make a statement.
Classic with a Twist – An  iconic beauty with a timeless aesthetic. You’re drawn to chic, elegant colors that pair well with any occasion.
Boho Glam – A dynamic free spirit with a creative eye. You favor a mix of earthy tones and playful, vibrant colors.
Bombshell – A confident frill-seeker with magnetic appeal. You adore bold, glam colors and anything that sparkles. Modern Beauty – A savvy tastemaker obsessed with the art and science of beauty. You’re always first to try the latest, most innovative beauty products.

I loved my first box so much that I went and used the 50% off right away on! I also loved the benefits of being a Maven (Getting 20% off everything on top of the 50% and free shipping!) That’s just a deal I couldn’t refuse.

Julep has so many beautiful colors and colors to suit everybody. They also have some amazing sale prices (if the products aren’t out of stock already). You seem to have to be quick to get the deals!
If you love getting surprises in the mail, getting awesome nail polishes or beauty products (they have them too), you will love being a Julep Maven!

If you have any questions about this that I haven’t answered, please leave a comment! I’d be happy to answer any questions to the best of my ability.
