Julep Maven Box - Page 3

post #61 of 190

Just got my first box! I got American Beauty - Anne, Maria, and 3 fl oz Age Defying Hand Brightener. Also sample sachets of SPF 30 hand cream and the Glycolic Hand Scrub.

 

Here are some pictures including swatches (I know I was unable to find any swatches of Maria online). Maria is a very gorgeous metallic "platinum Rose" shade, as described. Both went on a little streaky, but I was trying to apply one thick coat for full opacity ... haha, I have no patience. I was really impressed with the drying time on these, especially Maria! I tested Anne too soon, hence the slight smudge.

I would say my swatches show Maria pretty true to color, but not so much with Anne. Other people have done a better job of capturing that shade! Love both of them. The hand cream is really silky and smells nice. I wonder if it will actually brighten - that would be nice because my hands are pretty dark compared to my NC25 complexion! (So hard to be good about putting sunscreen on the hands when you wash your hands throughout the day!)

$22/month for a full price box is not really in my budget now (I used $5 code JANUARY) but I love that I get a preview of the available boxes first and have time to skip the month, so I will probably not cancel altogether.

Anne is GORGEOUS!

post #63 of 190

I would love to get it every month but with the other subscription programs (myglam, bb, test tube, and green grab bag blink.gif) it starts adding up!, and this is the most expensive one. I might start skipping every other month. I can't wait to see next month's colors, maybe that will help me decide!

Maria looks like one of Revlon foil polishes.

I got my first box in today!  Wow, that was quick.  I just signed up with them this week.  That is awesome.  I received the American Beauty box.  I love both colors of nail polish and the hand cream feels & smells great.  Now I just need to decide if I should pay the $19.99/ month to continue....

I am on the same page with you except I only have myglam and birchbox subscriptions.  And this monthly fee is as much as those two put together.  Decisions, decisions...  I may keep it for another month and skip every other month from there on.

Such a good deal. Hopefully nobody tries to buy 50 1-cent bags this time LOL

Omg yes, saw it a few hours ago in my inbox and couldn't resist..

As I'm new to this, could anyone clarify this?

 

from Julep maven site:

Quote:
As a Julep maven, your credit card is charged when you place your initial Maven order.  If you sign up before the 18th of the month, you will be charged again on the 27th of that same month.  If you sign up after the 18thof the month, you will be charged on the 27th of the following month.  To avoid being charged, you can login to your account between the 20th and 24th to Skip the Month. If you wish to cancel, you must do so by the 24th at 11:59pm (PST) to avoid being charged on the 27th. 

So unless I skip this month, I will be charged twice for one box? or two boxes? I am guessing that the 1 cent deal is for the first box only? I'd be grateful for any clarifications.

The 1 cent deal is for the initial box they'll send you for January. If you don't skip by the 25th (must skip by the 25th) you'll be charged the full price on the 27th for February's box.

post #76 of 190

My Julep Maven box came in! I *love* the purple color. 

 

I am not a huge fan of pink but I may try it on and see what happens. Yay!

love all the great pics of the anne nailpolish!   was about to purchase it when i logged into my account and realized  that i was able to purchase the jan american beauty box in addition to  other previous leftover boxes from the last couple of months!  wasn't aware that they offer that feature-it seems like such a better deal than buying the nailpolishes or lotions separately.

Thank you!!

All these pretty colors, can't wait.. ><

post #79 of 190

Thanks Zadidoll for the explanation...I am planning on skipping next month, since i can't afford it every month at $20/box. I am a "Classic with a Twist," but since I have polishes that  resemble the colors for my option this month, I choose "Bombshell" instead. BUT (again) now that i see Pancua's polishes, I want to change my mind again. I kinda like that pink with shimmer better than the seemingly matte pink in my kit. *sigh* never ending story of girls and polishes...lol

post #80 of 190
So I just had to sign up since it only cost me a penny. I got it girl. I'll most likely not get any more after that just because I dont have the money to keep up with 6 subscriptions.

Can we sign up for a second account?  I sooo want to take advantage of the $.01 special.   wink3.gif

i think you would have to use someone else's mailing info. Any close family nearby? :D

post #83 of 190

I could probably use my work address.  It wouldn't be a big deal.  That way I can choose whether I want the American Beauty or Bombshell box for each month.  I am so bad!  This is addicting.  I really liked the nail polishes and I didn't think I was going to like it so much!  LOL   What is a girl to do????    luv.gif

post #84 of 190

Hey guys --

 

For those of you who want to try it but can't afford a box every month, remember that you can always "skip" the box instead of canceling outright. You won't be charged. :)

post #85 of 190

I just happened to come upon this and think the colors are SO cute!!!! Is that penny deal really with no strings attached? If I pay today can I just cancel a few days later with no penalties?

I took the quiz and got "It Girl", has anyone seen what those colors are like yet? Thanks smile.gif

post #86 of 190

if you do let me know! i wonder if  they would notice billing address is the same??  hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.. i love it too!

I don't think they'll notice if you use the same address to ship because I used the November promo code for my $5 and then for my daughter's. The difference was our names on our accounts and that I set her up her own account under her email.

post #89 of 190

cool! im sending one to summer!!  hahahaaaaaa

post #90 of 190

i just signed up summer.. took me 3x doing the quiz to get a different result than american beauty..i answered different everytime..she finally got bombshell, which is what i wanted.. i tried to get jan box below (i wanted the scrub) but have to get the intro box which has the lotion.  i do like the lotion so it wont go to waste....  i am wondering if i should have waited? i hope i can cancel febs box since its so close to date to opt to skip next month...  hmmmmmmmmmmmm..  i tried the 1 cent code and it didnt work..  ...had to use january...(i dont have to pay the tax tho.. so thats cool!!)

I opted to skip January even though I can get an extra polish. I don't think $21.something is worth three nail polishes and a body scrub.
