I always get so excited when I see that magenta Julep box in my mailbox each month! This time I got two 5-free vegan nail polishes in Logan and Briana, and their lip gloss in Polished.
I’d been really curious to try their lip gloss since it is paraben and sulfate-free. I absolutely love the shade, a perfect sheer pinky nude. It smells really sweet when you first put it on (the only fall-back as it probably has artificial fragrance in it) but the smell fades pretty quick. The gloss however lasts a really long time and isn’t sticky. It contains a blend of rosehip seed oil, green coffee bean oil, and Malvaceae Lipid Extract (from hibiscus) which makes it really hydrating. Briana is the perfect lapis blue that I’ve been looking for in a polish and I can’t wait to try it. Logan is a dark, dark, dark violet. It’s almost black but when you turn it in the light you can see it is actually purple with a slight pearl sheen. It’s one of those shades that is hard to capture on camera but looks so cool in person. I’m happy to add it to my ever-growing collection of purple polishes.
This month they also included a Halloween surprise, a small pouch of candy corns. I don’t really buy Halloween candy so this was a fun little treat. As is the $10 off $20 coupon…ah Julep you get me every month with your coupons!
I joined as a Julep Maven a few months ago (this is my 3rd box I think) and really like that, unlike most other subscription boxes, you have a say in what goes in your monthly box. When you sign up you take a quiz so they have an idea of your preferences, but then each month before they send out your box you can choose to keep the items they’ve selected for you or swap them out for other items. Each month’s box contains $40+ of items for just $24.99, plus you get your first box free. I’ve been really happy with it so far even though it is kind of a lot to spend each month and have become addicted to those pretty little Julep bottles! You also get lower prices than non-members on the their site plus points for every purchase. They have a seemingly infinite selection of polish colors so nail polish junkies join here! xo – Naomi
