If you’ve been around the blogging scene or the nail board the last couple of days, you’ve probably seen people mentioning the Julep Maven program. It’s basically like Birchbox, where they put a little box of samples together for you to try each month for a fee. The awesome thing about Julep’s program is that it is all nail related. I have been interested in trying the brand since I saw them posted on a few blogs (last week maybe?) and this seemed like a great chance. It’s $20 a month, which seems steep, but you will get $40 worth of products – their polishes are $14 each, so if you get 2, you’ve gotten your $20 worth.
The thing that really drew me to the Maven program is that you get to see what they are going to send you – a little preview – and if you don’t like it, you can request a “shelf pull”, and they will redo your box. You can also choose to skip that month and you won’t be billed. Or, if you see it say “that’s pretty, but it’s not me… but mom would love it!” or something similar, you can have the box shipped to her instead. I liked the flexibility Julep provided with this program, unlike some of the other ones I’ve looked into. Maven members also get 20% off and free shipping on all orders!
If you’d like more information, you can look into the program on their website – click here. Julep does have a referral program, so if you end up joining through my link, I will earn $15 towards a future purchase. I didn’t want to try to be sneaky, so there it is. If you join, you can also earn $15 for each friend who joins. Not bad, eh?
To figure out what products you will be interested in, they do a short quiz to figure out what your style is, and at the end, they show you some colors that fit that style. If you click from there, you can see the exact box you would be getting for your first. If you don’t like it, no big deal – go back and retake the quiz. I did this several times until I found a box I LOVED. I can’t wait to get it! :D
The best part? Coupon codes to get your first month for a discounted price! BeautyStat will give you $10 off that $19.99, or smh9oxu will give you $15 off, making your first month only $4.99. I’m trying it out – I will let you know about it when I get my box, but I wanted to share since a) I’m excited and b) there are coupon codes working right now! :)
