Julep Maven Box

Bombshell Box - December 2012


Becoming a Julep Maven gives you exclusive access to COLOR. Each month we hand-pick trendsetting new nail colors, cult faves and cutting-edge beauty products that are just right for you. Commitment shy? No problem. YOU decide how often to receive your Julep Maven box, and you can cancel at any time.

Quoted from website:

This #maniMonday I'm featuring the Julep Bombshell Maven Box from December 2012. This box featured two full size polishes and a full size foot scrub. The two polishes included were a green glitter, "Cindy" and a gold glitter, "Hilary". I wasn't too sure about "Cindy" when I first looked at it, but after applying it to my nails, I absolutely adore this green shade. The "Hilary" polish has larger grains of gold glitter and seems to be a top coat. I have included pictures below of different combinations of this week's polishes along with the polishes from last week's #maniMonday.

My favorite product this month was by far the foot scrub. It reminds me of the old school Biore Self-Heating Mask, as the product doesn't feel warm when you squirt it into your foot, but as soon as you start rubbing, it instantly warms up. It doesn't stay warm for long, but it sure does feel nice when you first apply it. The scent is peppermint, but it doesn't linger on the skin. It is a soft scrub with exfoliating properties.

It's very simple to get started as a Julep Maven. First you fill out a fun quiz about your likes and style to determine which Maven category you fit in. But the awesome thing is you can switch any to a different style each month. So if you like the colors in another style better than your style based on the quiz, you are freely open to do so at any time. The other awesome thing about Julep is you can cancel anytime, skip the month, or send your box to a friend, all for free. So if you decide it's not for you, then you aren't locked in. After picking your first box, it will be shipped out within three (3) days so you can shortly start playing with your new colors.

There are five (5) Maven profiles that you can choose from:

This look is the grown up version of the All-American girl-next-door. You can turn heads in a cocktail dress and heels, but also love relaxing in your favorite tee and jeans. Elegantly simple but unafraid of a little indulgence, your wardrobe glows with eye-catching hues.

An eternal romantic with an appreciation of beauty on a deeper level, you see your wardrobe as a creative drawing board. Your effortlessly elegant look pairs earthy neutral tones with fun, chic hues of turquoise, purple or orange.

Sexy and confident, this style is abundant with playful prints, flirtatious cuts, and saturated hues. You're a frill-seeker who's not afraid to have fun, especially when it comes to your wardrobe and accessories.

This timeless, iconic look is marked by beautiful yet simple cuts and colors. You accent your neutral palette with carefully chosen textures, patterns and splashes of color. Whatever the trends, you're uninfluenced by short-lived fads and always remain confidently in style.

Edgy and bold, your statement-making look exemplifies the modern rock 'n' roll chic. You love bright, bold, fun and innovative style and are inspired by colors and accessories that are anything but ordinary.
