I received my February Julep Maven box yesterday!! I loved how everything was packaged!.. It is my first box after receiving the introductory box.. Now the monthly box is a little smaller but that is not an issue at all.
For more information on what julep maven is please view my previous julep post HERE.
If you are interested in receiving an introductory box i believe the penny box promo is still available.. if not you can still try for the 5$ intro box..use promo code "COLOR2012" for a penny box.. if that does not work please try promo code "INTRO5" or "STYEQUIZ" for a 5$ box.. Please note that these codes are only for new customers.. if those codes do not work please let me know.. so i can get some new codes for you guys =).. All you will have to do is sign up, take the quiz and add any of the intro boxes to your cart and enter any of the previous codes.. you can do all that at http://www.julep.com <-- Referral Link (hope you guys don't mind using it) ☺
BTW they are also having a mystery box.. loaded with the most favorites!! it is a 60-200$ value!! but you can get it for 19.99! Please use promo code "VALENTINE".. I hear their mystery boxes are pretty awesome.. but sadly i am passing on it this time around because i just cannot put the money up for it ><.. Gotta save them for the textbooks! - waaah-
Here's a sneak peak into my American Beauty box !!
In my box I received
My quiz results were originally the Classic with a twist.. The colors were beautiful in that box but.. it also came with a hair shine instead of the cuticle oil.. so I decided to try a different box (you are given that option monthly to choose a different box than you are offered).. I don't have a red nail polish.. so I figured this would be a great opportunity to grab one ☺!
*Please click on any of the images to see the larger version*
The box is definitely smaller than the intro box and is black instead of red.. but it still did not fit into my mail box.. I wish it would fit into my mail box.. seeing as to I am starting school soon.. I wont be home for my next couple of boxes =.=
Nothing really to say here except i love all the red and gold confettii !!
This time around the nail polish was wrapped just the way they should be wrapped. In a bubble wrapped little baggie.. So all my my products were secured.
Glenn "Bold berry red shimmer"
Oscar "Ultra chic, multi-dimensional gold glitter"
This was one thing I could not understand in this box and my introductory box.. that 1 polish always had the name on the bottom and the other did not... Can someone please tell me why that is?
Here are some swatches from my nail wheel =)
*Oscar is really pretty alone with 2-3 coats.. but i have seen some swatches on other blogs of it on top of a dark base polish.. and it is even more beautiful! maybe you guys will see it in one of my nails of the weeks!
1 coat of each
