December was my first month to receive a Julep Maven box. Me, the self-proclaimed subscription box addict searching beauty blogs for another fix, came across a blog post that stated I could get my first box for only 99 cents if I subscribed. Well...I'm a sucker for a good deal. I just HAD to!!! I do have a confession to make though - I'm not a nail polish person. I hardly wear it, if ever. But I'd like to wear it more often and expand my almost non-existent nail polish collection. So I was excited when I found out January's theme would include a nude and a neon. Two shades I didn't have and really wanted!
My style profile is American Beauty according to Julep Maven's style quiz. I opted to keep my shade selections, even though I had the option of choosing a different combination on any style profile if I preferred it over mine. I like that flexibility.
Escape & Unwind
Though an added bonus from Julep, I wasn't surprised to see these new hair ties in my box this month. They are absolutely EVERYWHERE these days.
Side note: I honestly don't understand what all the fuss is about. After using one for less than an hour - I was over it. My fine hair easily slipped out of any style using this tie to secure it. I'm not a fan of them at all. What's wrong with a plain black Scunci? Bah. I'm not going to go gaga over these like everyone else...
Like I said before, I only just subscribed to Julep Maven last month - so I don't know how their old system of swatching was. But from what I understand, these swatch stickers for the nail polish caps are a new thing. I think it's just great. These stickers will help me to better organize my new expanding collection. I swatched January's new shades and the two introductory shades I received last month. It was surprisingly entertaining. Ha!
I really enjoyed January's "Escape & Unwind" theme from Julep Maven. I highly recommend this subscription service as my experience with the company thus far has been great. Each box is $19.99 per month and you can skip any month. Be sure to use the code JULEPVIP at checkout to get your first box for only 99 cents!!! Subscribe Now
