November 2012 :: Julep Maven #4

Here it is. My final delivery as a Julep Maven. I have enjoyed my time as a Julep Maven but I have decided to cancel my subscription and pursue other cosmetics options. It’s not you, Julep, it’s me.

I hope you’ll check out my upcoming post reviewing all the polishes and other goodies I received from Julep since subscribing back in July. I’ll post that Julep review sometime in December but for now, let’s see what my November 2012 Julep Maven box brought to Ms. Ginger Kate, shall we?

Always delivered on time and wrapped up all pretty. Julep really does a great job with their Julep Maven services. Their customer service team is also quite amazing.

Although I was classified as an “It Girl” when I originally signed up to be a Julep Maven, I opted for the Bombshell Box this month. In the past I have swapped boxes as well. The ability to swap your intended box for another box each month is one of the features I liked most about being a Julep Maven. You also have the option of skipping a month or sending your box to a friend as a gift. All are great options for a subscription beauty box service.

The first polish I received is a deep, glittery purple. The color is named, Trina. I love this color and purples are a big trend we are seeing throughout the fall and winter this year.

033

Next up, Donna, a peacock blue. I love this color as well. In fact, I’d say that Trina and Donna are my two favorite colors tat I’ve received since becoming a Julep Maven.

Here’s a shot of both colors being put to good use:

A little seasonal, peep-nail action going on… (my thumb on my left hand shows my glittery Nailtini polish that I received in my Nov 2012 Ipsy Galm bag! … I couldn’t wait to give that a try either!)

My third product, this month, is Julep’s Pink Grapefruit Body Frosting. I don’t normally like receiving anything other than nail related products in my Julep Maven boxes, but this body frosting is fantastic! The smell is absolutely amazing!

As a bonus, Julep through in three of their nail polish remover pads. They’re pretty effective too! When I received my box I wanted to try on Donna and Trina right away and so I whipped out one of those pads, removed my polish and experimented with my new colors. I removed the polish from all ten nails very easily with only one pad. Sometime the nail polish remover pads end up spreading the polish all over my fingertips but not these.

So that’s that. My final Julep Maven box. Please check out my upcoming Julep Maven review of all that I have received whilst a Julep Maven. It may inspire you to become a Julep Maven yourself!

Thanks for reading! Love, GK
