(Spoilers) Julep December 2013

Recommended Posts

Sparked by a convo going on in a swap group on FB...

 

Have any of you had (or currently have) an annual, or even 6 month, subscription for Julep?

 

I looked into it last month and didn't really see the benefit in it. There's no discount (like paying 11 months worth and the 12 month box is free), which I do understand since you get Jules and a years worth of Jules (counting birthday & anniversary ones) works out to 2 free boxes. Beyond that though I can't really think of a reason to sub for a chunk of time vs. month by month. 

 

Well except if I subbed yearly, my husband would forget pretty quickly and I could do things like upgrade every few months ;-) 

 

Any other incentives?

Oh that sucks.  Hopefully they will send a  replacement quickly.

I just got mine today and my Gem Collection was broken as well. I decided to call them directly and am currently on hold. I'm glad I looked because I was planning on gifting this to someone and would have been sooooo embarrassed if they had found all of the bottles broken. :icon_redf

I'm still waiting for a response. Let me know what they say! I might call later today. I haaaaaaate calling companies though.

She placed a new order for me and asked me to email her a picture. I noticed that this has happened to others as well, I say someone in the December thread saying the same thing. I have Kenya all over my hands now and it looks like I'm bleeding.

 

I just realized that there are now red finger prints all over my kitchen now...Looks like a crime scene!

I called and they said the same thing. I'm relieved! Mine wreaked of polish so I knew something was up. Mine was a gift too so I'm so glad I opened it as well.

Just came over here because someone mentioned another girl had a broken set. There wasn't much padding in the box, but in addition to that, the jewelry box leaves a huge gap in the upper portion of the box which allows everything to jostle around. If they put some bubble wrap in the jewelry box itself, it wouldn't happen.

That's true plus the case is hard like a rock and the polishes were probably slamming around in there. They really did not think the packaging through.

 

@chelsealady that set is super cute!

Did anybody notice the one of the New 100 point perk for Sephora is a freedom top coat mini?
Yes! I was tempted to get one, but I'm still in point-hoarding mode. I'm hoping for more set-type perks like that Nars set from a while ago.

Yeah I'm halfway hoping I can make enough points for the Marc Jacobs set for my niece. But I don't think it is in the cards. First world problems.

It's in my basket waiting for tomorrow and my 20% off code.

 

I haven't tried it before.  I have heard mixed reviews here on MUT about it.  I figure this is the perfect opportunity to try it for 100 pts.

I'm usually a Seche Vite devotee, but I got a bottle of it in a PopSugar box, and it does play much better with Julep polishes than SV. Although I will continue to use SV for pretty much everything else, Freedom will be my go-to when I use Julep!

I love love love it. Smooth to the touch in under 5 minutes. Polish under it is still wet, but it hardens the top layer and my biggest problem is clothing/sheet smudges, not dinging it on something. It's wonderful!

I totally agree with you. I would hop on the MB train as well.

 

I have 18 polishes on the way from Julep - not to mention that I still haven't used a lot of older polishes!

I've had opened boxes as well. I live in Canada so I'm not sure if while crossing the border they open my boxes. Would be nice if they resealed it though -_-
