September Julep Maven: Cityscapes

This month’s theme for September’s Julep Maven was Cityscape.  The theme was centered around the city lights.  I almost skipped this month.  I have many nail polishes and I didn’t like all of them.  I really loved the purple color in Classic with a Twist and Karmen (an add on polish).  I decided to go ahead and get this month’s box.  I was also really curious about the cleansing oil.  If you are new to my Julep Maven reviews, Julep Maven is $19.99 a month with free shipping.

This is how the box comes
 Julep Maven’s boxes change from time to time.  I really like the pretty pink box from last month.  I hope it makes it appearance soon.
First Look
The cold tissue paper was a nice touch.  The add on I got was outside the tissue paper.
Each month, there is always a small card with a quote on it.  This month: “If your dreams do not scare you, they aren’t big enough.” Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
Bonus Item
There is also a bonus item thrown in each month.  This month, Julep included a one-step polish remover pad.  I am bad about using small samples, but I am actually going to try this.
New Packaging
This month was the debut of the new Julep Maven packaging.   I am not sure why Julep is added extra packaging to their boxes.  Maybe the cardboard is cheaper than the bubble wrap?
I love purple!  Padma is a beautiful dark purple color.  I am excited to use this and I think this will become one of my favorites.
I wish I could have traded this out for another color.  This is a caramel/off white color.  I will save this for a gift.  I think my mom might like this color.
Bare Face leaning Oil
I am hesitant to try some new beauty products, that is why I sometimes get It Girl (It has 3 polishes).  This says it has age-defying and cell-regenerative benefits.  Since I am not longer 21, I am hoping this stuff works.
I love this color.  This is my favorite item of the box and it is my add on.  It is a red/pink/gold sparkly color.  I simply love it and can’t wait to use it.
The Whole Box

Final Thought: This isn’t my favorite month from Julep overall, but I really love Karmen and Padma.  I really love Julep as a company.  They let you skip any month (you must log in between the 20th and 24th of the month).  You also get free shipping on orders through the Julep Maven store.  If you are new to Julep Maven, you can get your first box free, just pay shipping ($3.99).  Click HERE to order.
