I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but ever since Julep opened up Maven box customization for me, my excitement and enjoyment of their subscription service has been rekindled. While I love a mystery box as much as the next person, when it comes to something as personal as picking a nail polish color, especially when it's only from a small collection of ten or so, I want to be able to chose what I want and what I don't (and to be able to opt out if nothing interests me).
Quick Run-Down: $24.99 a month nail polish-centric makeup and beauty box (I pay $19.99 a month since that's what it was when I first subscribed and when Julep upped the price, they kept previous subscribers at the original cost); all products are made by Julep, a nail salon originally from Seattle, WA, and the box includes no outside brands (except for the occasional extra freebie); each month a new collection of polish colors is released, along with one or two new beauty products (which could also come in a variety of colors); able to customize your box to a certain price point, generally three full size products are included each month.
Overall, I'm quite happy with my June 2016 Julep Maven box; the products I picked performed well and were exactly what I wanted (...it would be weird if they weren't since I chose them myself). I'm already locked into my July box, so I'm looking forward to that, and, as long as Julep lets me customize my boxes and skip a month or two if nothing appeals to me, I'm happy to continue to be a Julep Maven!
Thanks for reading! <3
