Julep Maven - Classic With a Twist: August 2012

4 years ago

For those who don`t know, Julep Maven is a monthly subscription box that`s filled with nail goodies. Polishes, nail polish remover, hand/foot cream, and everything in between. For $20 a month, you can get a new box of goodies every month.

The first box I ordered from Julep Maven was, honestly, not very impressive. But there was a deal going on back in June and I was able to snag a box for only 1 cent! What a steal!

Anyways, I skipped July due to my limited shopping budget, and this month I forgot to skip the month before they sent it to me. D: Instead of paying the $4.95 restocking fee, I decided to just keep it.

What I got:
Small reusable tote bag
Acetone-free nail polish remover
Nail polish in "Alfre" (the purple metallic)
Nail polish in "Felicity" (the gold)

Being honest, I really don`t think this is worth $20. I haven`t liked one thing I received in the two Maven boxes I did receive, and paying $20 a month for things I don`t love just isn`t worth it to me.

I tried the Acetone-free Nail Polish Remover, and I have to say it`s not that bad. I tried to remove glitter polish with it, and it was more work than I`d like. I`d probably use my usual acetone from Sally`s Beauty for that. The polish remover also had an odd smell that sort of turned my stomach. Not something I really want to deal with.

I`ll try out the two new polishes soon and post swatches soon. :)

On the note of monthly subscription boxes, what do you girls and boys prefer? I was thinking of trying Birchbox or Stylemint.
