December Julep - Bombshell Box

Julep is a monthly subscription company for nail polishes. When you sign up for Julep you take a little quiz and it will tell you what kind of polish girl you are.  You are not obligated to stay with that that type though.  When I first signed up the website said I was Boho Glam but liked the It Girl colors better so I picked that one and as you can see I went with neither of those options this month. You can join as a Julep maven for $24.99 a month which will get you $40+ worth of polish and products. You can also sign up for a prepaid 3 month subscription for $60 which brings it down to $20 a month. The next level subscription is Julep Maven luxe. This program is priced at $39.99 a month and you will get $60+ worth of prestige products. This also has a 3 month prepaid option for $105.00 which brings it to $34.99 a month. The benefit of these new plans is that each box is completely customizable which, as I understand, means you can pick they nail polish colors you want from any of the style profiles. Since I'm signed up under their old pricing plan ($19.99/month not customizable) I had the option of switching my subscription to one of these new tiers but I haven't switched yet.


The good:

The colors: If you like nail polish then it's a nice way to experiment with multiple colors

Need a gift? If you want to send your box to a friend there is an option to do so.  Just log on to your account and click send to friend.

Ingredients: Julep is 4-free which means it's formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene or DBP free.  

Want the polish but not the commitment?  You can buy the polish online at Julep.com or in Sephora stores.  The cost is $14 so if you like polish then becoming a Maven is a better deal.  If you want to try it out first you can always pick one up at Sephora or online.   

Swatches: I love how every month Julep shows what the color looks like on actual nails and shows it on different skin tones. 

Referral program. You earn "Jules" for referrals, purchases, anniversary, birthday and upgrades.

Skip a month? YES. They recently changed it so ALL mavens have the ability to skip after purchasing their first monthly box. 

The not so good:

Now that they have brought back the skips I couldn't think of anything that wasn't so good. 

December Bombshell Box

Zenith eyeshadow

Contents of Modern Beauty box w/retail price:

Paula, Bombshell, Persian Blue with Gold Microshimmer . Value = $14.00/$11.20

Soleil, Bombshell, Lustrous Rose Gold Chrome . Value = $14.00/ $11.20

Add-On

Orbital Eyeshadow in Zenith, Cocoa with gold pearlescence. Value = $18.00/$14.40

The approximate value of my Bombshell Maven box is $46.00 or 36.80 using Maven pricing. I can't remember how much the extra eyeshadow was to add-on because I used jules for that. I'm am loving the intense color of the eyeshadows. I read somewhere that Julep was going to branch out and do more makeup products. I wonder if they have out nail polished themselves? You can only create so many colors before they all start looking the same. 

Verdict: Love the colors in this months box!
