This month I was so excited to see a collaboration between Julep and Trina Turk. I was even MORE excited to see Julep has come out with a mascara! As a girl who has yet to discover her favorite mascara, I’m delighted to see this product from Julep. Normally when I select a box style, it’s because I want one product specifically. This month, I wanted not only the mascara, but the color Sophie as well.
What’s in the Box?
- Sophie – Truffle Mushroom Creme
- Brandt – Opaque Off-Black Creme
- Julep Volumizing Mascara – Jet Black
Giveaway – CLOSED
In honor of Modern Martha’s official launch, Julep is sponsoring a Julep Maven Introductory Box Giveaway! The winner will be able to choose which box style is best for them. Julep currently ships to the United States, United States Minor Outlying Islands, and Canada, so this giveaway is only open to those territories. And as always, you must be 18 or older, or have parent permission to enter this giveaway.
What is Julep Maven?
Julep Maven is a monthly nail polish subscription program by Julep. It costs $20 a month, but you can get your first box for only a penny by using one of the following codes at checkout: COLOR2012, PENNY, TWITTER1. Subscribers will take a beauty quiz and be assigned a beauty profile. The best part? You don’t have to purchase the profile they assign you. You can select any beauty profile! The even BETTER part? You can preview what’s going to be in each box before you decide. Each box contains either 2 polishes and one beauty product or three polishes.
Any for those of you that still like the surprise aspect of monthly beauty boxes, Julep offers limited edition mystery boxes now and then, so keep your eyes peeled! In addition to mystery boxes, Julep throws in a little bonus item here and there. So far I’ve received a nail file, a makeup bag, and an extra nail polish. Nice! ALSO, each month every subscriber has the chance to win an elusive Golden Box which contains every single color in every single box style from that month.
When you purchase your first box, you’ll receive what’s called an introductory box immediately after ordering. This box only costs a penny if you use one of the codes above. After that, you will start receiving the monthly box on schedule with everyone else. Each month Julep sends out an email on the 20th reminding subscribers that they should switch their box style, change their mailing address, change their billing address, or skip the month. On the 24th these items are all locked in, and the boxes will ship out shortly after. The nice part is, if you want to skip a month, it’s no big deal. With some beauty programs you have to cancel all together a re-sign back up. What a hassle!
Another perk of the Julep Maven program is their wonderful refer-a-friend set up. You only need to refer two friends to earn a free month. With intro boxes for only a penny, anyone can manage that! Your friend must remain an enrolled Maven for 30 days after purchasing their first Maven box for you to keep your referral credit.
Subscribers enjoy 20% off all products plus free shipping in the Maven Boutique (accessible from your profile). I took advantage of this to by my mom The Best Pedi Creme Ever for her birthday. I loved it so, so much that I knew she’d love it, too. Also, Julep Maven makes a great gift. Instead of skipping the month, you can opt to send you box to a friend. A few months ago, I sent mine to my sister, and she loved it.
To top it all off, Julep Maven has the most wonderful customer service. You can see it happening every single day on their Twitter. People will complain that they forgot to update their box or address during the 20th-24th window, and they’re so kind about helping people out. So what are you waiting for? Sign up!
