It’s time for the sub box that kicked off my entire addiction: Julep subscription. (Save 20% on your julep.com purchase with coupon code LETSGET20 which expires on 3/31/16). For more special offers jump down below.
For February, I opted for one of the curated boxes.
CLASSIC WITH A TWIST BOX
Eyeshadow 101 – Olive Shimmer Crème-to-Powder Eyeshadow Stick
(Retail $18.00/Maven Price: $14.40)
Description: “A crème-to-powder shadow stick on top with a smudger on the other end. Expect huge color payoff and crease-proof, stay-all-day power…”
I thought this shade would complement my fair skin and red hair and it does. It also goes on really easily. It’s a great color that’s not too dark, or too light and I think it would complement a lot of skin tones. It reads very bronze and it has this art deco type vibe I adore.
Meghan: (Retail $14.00/Maven Price: $11.20)
Description: Flaming red crème
Reds are my favorite and this one reminds me of a 50s pinup. It will be great for summer pedicures.
Kay: (Retail $14.00/Maven Price: $11.20)
Description: Warm taupe with gold microshimmer
I’m a sucker for shimmery nudes and I thought this would be a really pretty base for some nail art.
Free Candy! &
Hartleigh: (Retail $14.00/Maven Price: $11.20)
Description: Holographic heart glitter top coati
I already have this topcoat so I’m going to hoard this extra as a gift. I love it when we get polish freebies and this one is perfect for Valentine’s Day.
The retail value on this box was $60 and the maven value was $48.00. I paid $21.39 with tax and I feel like I got a great value for my money. Julep has now graciously upgraded their long time mavens to customizable boxes for the same price, so I should have all kinds of goodies from Julep to review in my upcoming boxes.
JULEP APRIL SPOILERS!
For April Julep is introducing a Vivid sheers collection and a cleansing stick. Here’s a pic of the “whole shebang”. I’m a sucker for sheers and jellies, so you know I’ll be snapping up a ton of polish, and I can’t resist trying that new cleanser…looks like April will be pricey for me.
Free Eye Shadow Gift with Subscription ($54 value)! Get the RSVP Palette when you sign up for a subscription.
(Just remember this signs you up for a monthly subscription. If you don’t wish to receive boxes you will need to call Julep to cancel. You can also opt to skip a month and you will not be billed.)
