January Julep Maven Box

It’s already that time of the month again. Julep Maven un-boxing time, that is.

This month Julep released their Resort Collection, neons and nudes. To get us all out of our winter blues! It has only been cold a handful of day here in Florida so I’m always ready for neons. In fact, I think Julep read my mind… remember my post last month? I was itching for neons!

Ok, lets get to it and see what’s in the box:Image

I went with the Boho Glam box this month. It features Fiona (neon) and Teresa (nude).Image

I noticed on the bottom of the bottles this month(year) that Julep adding the year plus 3/120 and 4/120. I really like this. For any Julep collectors this will be handy to make sure you have all 120, 2013 polishes. It kind of makes me want to make sure I get all 120 bottles too. I don’t know how I’ll pull that off just yet lol.Image

The product this month is a Hand and Cuticle stick. I normally use Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. So I’m interested to see how this compares. I’d love to tell you exactly what this smells like but I’m fighting a cold so my sense of smell is a little off lol. To me it smells a bit like floral and citrus. ImageAnother neat thing Julep came out with this year was their “Swatch Me” stickers. In the past I’ve just painted the lids of my Julep bottles so that I know which is what in my Helmer. They offered these as add on’s this month too but I didn’t buy any. I didn’t think I’d like them or find a use for them since I had my other method. Truth be told, I love them! I need more. Another extra added this month were these neon hair ties! They’re so cute!Image

But wait! There’s more! I chose 3 add on’s this month.

I love the one step remover pads so I added them on this month to make sure I always have some on hand. I also wanted two more of the neons. I picked out Nina and Madison.Image

They’re numbers 8 and 11 of the collection. ImageHere are all 4 polishes swatched on the “Swatch Me” stickers. Image

What did you think of this month’s box? A lot of people were upset with it. I guess that’s bound to happen though. You can’t make everyone happy. I, however, am IN LOVE! I plan on nail swatching all four of these colors for you all the rest of this week so stay tuned for that.

And as usual… If you’re not a Julep Maven yet and want to become one, you can find my referral button to the right of the page. Or just click here. Julep is monthly subscription service for  $19.99 a month. You wont be mad about it ;).

  1. I was really excited about the January box because I love nude polishes, though neons not so much. Unfortunately my budget didn’t have room in it for my maven box after the holidays so I had to pass…Your post makes me want to pick up some of the colors I missed though when I have the opportunity!
