Julep Maven Unboxing | December 2016

Can y’all believe that it is already DECEMBER!?! This year has flown by! It’s time for me to share what I received in my Julep subscription box this month. Julep is a subscription box service where you are able to handpick 3 products you would like each month. You can also add on products for a discounted price. The box is $24.99/month or $19.99/month with a 3-month prepaid subscription. You can click here to use my referral link to subscribe.

This month I really, really tried to switch up the products I picked. I really tried to stay away from nail polishes…I failed. LOL! I had to get one as an add on. I couldn’t help myself! I did manage to get some other goodies, so let’s see what I got!

It’s Whipped Matte Lip Mousse in Swoon, $20.00

This is the second lip mousse I have tried from Julep. This formula is amazing! It’s very creamy which makes it very comfortable on your lips. My lips never feel dry wearing this even though it is a matte lipstick. I was expecting this shade to be darker on me since it is described as “heathered wine matte” on the site. Instead, it it just a dusty rose shade on me. It’s still pretty and I will definitely wear it!

Don’t Leave Your Brows at Home in Rich Brown, $24.00

I normally stick to brow pencils because, for me, they are much easier to use and I like to keep my makeup as simple and natural looking as possible. But, I decided to try something new, so I selected this for my box this month. I like that one end of the tube has the brow gel in it and the other end is the brush, now I don’t have to keep up with so much. I used this product to just fill in my brows because I don’t prefer the over defined brows. The gel is really smooth and easy to apply. It is somewhat difficult to get product on the brush since the part that it is in is kind of small. Overall, I liked the look and feel of this. I can’t say if I will be replacing my Ofra Universal Brow Pencil or not, but I will use this if I just want to do something different.

Oxygen Bonding Base Coat, $18.00

I got this base coat in a subscription box several months ago and really loved it. Once I ran out, I decided that I would get different products and use the base coats I already had at home. Over time I realized that no base coat was quite like this one. This base coat literally grips your nail polish to your nails and allows the polish to last longer. It also allows your nails to grow healthier and stronger. I do notice a difference in the health of my nails when using this base coat versus others.

Wonder Maven Nail Polish in Krystle, $14.00


Krystle is a dark green shade with a little shimmer. Julep’s nail polishes last at least 4 days without chipping. The polishes are also 5-free and vegan friendly.
