February Classic with a Twist Julep Maven Box
This is just going to be a simple unboxing post for my February Box, just to show you what's inside. Basically my opinion is the same as my last box. I tried both my nail polishes from my last box and they both have great application. I prefer the creme based over the shimmery polish, just because I find the shimmery polish is a little too translucent for my liking, even after two coats. On the other hand, I can get away with one coat with the creme based polish. My preference towards the creme-based polish was the reason why I chose to go with Classic with a Twist this month but I was also attracted to the cobalt blue that was in the Boho Glam Box.
So I received this box as complimentary gift for all the friends and readers who signed up through my referral link. Thank you all for feeding into my addiction, I really appreciate it! In celebration of the Awards season, this month's Julep Maven box was Oscar-themed. I'll keep this post short and just show you what I got.
CHOCOLATE: Oscar (Bonus)
- This is a little bonus treat this month, an Oscar Dark Chocolate. I took the picture right away and I devoured it in like 5 seconds. So delicious!
JULEP: Topcoat for HairThis hot new treatment works on your hair just like topcoat does for nails, leaving a lustrous, protective sheen. Multi-weight silicones protect against both thermal damage and the elements while smoothing, conditioning and sealing.
Full Size: $16.00 (2.5 fl oz.)
Sample Value: $16.00 (2.5 fl oz.)
Jane's Beauty Tip: One of my favorite tips is to finish every shampoo with a blast of cold water to help seal the cuticle. You'll be surprised at the noticeable difference in shine.
- I've tried it couple of times, but I haven't used it enough to see any noticeable difference.
JULEP: Nail Vernis
Meryl: The perfect neutral, sophisticated gray creme
Oscar: Ultra chic, multi-dimensional gold glitter.
Full Size: $28.00 ($14.00 each)
Sample Value: $28.00
Total Value of this month's Box: $44+
I really like Julep's nail polishes and I can definitely see why they would charge $14 each. The quality of Julep's polishes remind me of the super high end polishes that I've tried and owned from Dior and Chanel, so I think $14 is pretty reasonable compared to the $20+ charge from those brands. I personally can't shell out so much for individual polishes, so that is why I'm so thankful for this program and my referrals!
