It’s been months since I’ve opted to get a Julep Maven box. Most months I skip because the nail polish shades are too similar to ones I already own. Lately they’ve been adding a lot of makeup items to their line so I finally came across a box I wanted to get.
For July’s Maven box I chose to customize it myself to include exactly the items I wanted to try. That’s one of the improvements they’ve made to the monthly service in the past few months.
Now if you don’t like all of the items they’ve selected for each separate box, you can pick and choose specifically which three items you do want. I went with one nail polish color called Tomi.
Julep Tomi is a beautiful teal blue holographic polish. I haven’t tried it on my nails yet but it reminds me of ocean water, so pretty!
The second item I chose was the Julep Glow Highlighting Powder in the color Champagne. The compact is much larger than I expected. It’s the size of my entire palm.
Champagne is a light golden highlighter. It’s soft and creamy and blends out nicely. It does have very fine glittery specks in it that aren’t too noticeable on the skin.
My third and last pick was this Julep Tinted Lip Oil Treatment in the color Covet. It’s a moisturizing formula made with grape seed oil, avocado oil and rosehip oil.
Covet gives my lips a light pink tint while keeping them soft and smooth. It doesn’t feel overly greasy or oily.
Overall I was pretty pleased with everything I chose for July’s Julep Maven box. I got three great full sized beauty items for only $24.99.
