My Maven (substitutions) for everyone

Recommended Posts

It's about time! I thought it was dumb that they waited this long. This is a win for me, since I don't have many holes in my nail polish collection but I am a fan of Julep's skincare and nail care. I will wind up taking a box more often because of it.

 

Can someone who's had My Maven for a while verify how it works for those of us who have watched from the sidelines? Is there a limit to which products you can sub into your box? Like, could I go crazy and do three bottles of Rethink Your Shower if I wanted while still keeping the original price?

Glad you have decided to join in on the Julep fun @@lamplighter! :) I've been with Julep since almost day one but then cancelled and started back up again about a year go. I've only skipped a few times. I just think for the price it's a great value. I like their skin care and make up too. My last box was two nail polishes and an eye shadow. Before that my boxes included add-ons. You can add on how ever many products you want on top of your features box and most of them are at discount so it's really hard not to go overboard with the add-ons especially since you get an extra gift if you add-on 3 items or more. You can modify the box to just include nail polishes but not sure if you can pick 3 of the same colors. I've never tried to do that. Hopefully someone knows.

Very cool, thanks! I've been a member for two years but I've always used the original non-substituting format (too cheap to spring for the extra $5 for My Maven). If there wasn't a box that appealed I skipped. I think this new change is so smart for them, because there'll be a reason for me to take a box almost every month now. A lot of the skincare will wind up almost as low-priced as secret store prices, and taking a box = Jules. It's a win for me, anyway.

When I signed back up I didn't upgrade to the option of changing the box either. I got frustrated after a few months and figured it was worth the extra cost because I've been able to make the boxes exactly how I want them. So much better this way.

I never upgraded to the new box format so am excited to now be able to customize and/or skip boxes at the $19.99 price.  I've gotten to the point where I enjoy their skincare/makeup as much as the polishes (if not more) so am excited I can now add them on!

    • I have a question for make up artists. I am a makeup artist working a gig with a photographer for a shoot that’s going to be doing 20 min headshots all day long. I think we have 10 people signed up for one day so far starting at 11am. I’m currently negotiating my fee and am asking $50 a person/ headshot for the day.  I don’t want to underrate myself ( I usually charge a flat fee for one 2-3 hour headshot session) , but I feel this fee is fair given it’s my makeup supplies, time and artistry, and I will be there all day.   Any thoughts or feedback about this and if you’ve had similar jobs that designated a specific fee given the high volume of faces I’ll be doing for this shoot.
    • I want to share with you all a product that has given me incredible results. It is the LED Light mask, each color helps to improve some aspect of the skin, led light therapy is used in spas, saloons... the fact is that I bought it at biomasktherapy.com I got it, I took a picture before using it and after two weeks I noticed some incredible changes, it has improved the acne, spots, wrinkles, it has left the skin clearer and especially I had a big change around my eyes area, is the change that has surprised me most, love it. I use the mask everyday for 30 minutes. I am sharing the photo of before/after two weeks results of use :) What's your experience with LED light therapy? 
    • Well, choosing a right hair straighter is very important. If you go for the choice of a wrong one it may result in damaging your hair in long ru. If asked from me I prefer to use Phillips straightener. Its a good and reputed brand . Also, the quality of product is really good.  Also, you must care about your hair before applying rod or an iron to it. For that you need to take help of hair protecting serums to use before ironing hair. That will prevent your hair from damage.
    • Bollywood’s superstar, Sonam Kapoor is an International fashion icon, adored for her style. Be it the red carpet, airport looks, public appearances, etc. she always dressed on point, giving us major fashion goals. Below are some styling tips given by the fashionista herself. 1.      Add A Pop of Colour: Do you own a lot of monochromes and greys? If yes, it’s time to add some bright colours to your wardrobe. Include some reds, blues, yellows and pinks and own it like a boss!   2.      Invest in Statement Pieces: Sonam Kapoor firmly believes in investing in statement pieces such as large necklaces, sequined purses, brooches or even cocktail rings. Most of these come within the budget and look absolutely stunning.   3.      Indian is NOT Boring: If you prefer donning Indian clothes, don’t think it’s boring. You could always pair your sarees or salwar suits with attractive accessories such as bling jhumkas or a statement clutch.   4.      Experiment with Styles: Never stop experimenting. A change in your looks every now and then is a good thing. A new hairstyle, a different saree drape, etc. are some styles you should try out.   5.      Let Your Eyes Do the Talking: Sonam Kapoor loves eye make-up. Whether it’s just a kajal with a lip gloss or shimmering eye shadow or even some dramatic eye make-up, she neve shies away from experimenting with her looks that steal the show.  
    • Thanks,  I’ll try exfoliating
