November 2014 Julep Maven Review + Free Box

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links


Julep Maven was one of my first subscriptions, and I don’t see myself ever canceling.  I love all the colors and the polish lasts a long time.  Julep always has such great sales, I feel like I am getting a good deal.  The theme for November was The Friendsgiving Collection.  018

I recently upgraded from the old subscription to “My Maven”.  I love the freedom of picking out my own box.   I subscribe for 3 month increments, so I get a great value.


First Look


Vanilla Cream Caramels:  There were two included in the box.  C got these as I am not a caramel person.


There was a card with this month’s theme and inside, they talked about their new mascaras.  I personally have too many mascaras, so I didn’t get one.


There was a booklet with all kinds of new Holiday sets.  Many of these are in the secret store right now!

Nailed It! $48.00

Here is a look inside the brochure.  Check out the full Secret Store HERE and tell me what you get.


Fazia Bombshell  Finish: Shimmer $11.20  This is a beautiful color and is described as a liquid garnet shimmer.  I couldn’t wait to try this one out!

Devon Classic with a Twist Finish: Shimmer $11.20  This is a slate grey with fuchsia microshimmer.  I haven’t tried this out yet, but it is a beautiful color.


Julep Eye Glider Smoky Plum $12.80  Okay, I know I complain every time I get an eyeliner, but this one is purple!  I had to try this one out.  This is a beautiful purple color.  It’s dark but you can tell it’s not black.


This is Fazia!  I love it!  Please try not to judge the manicure.  I had about 2 minutes to do this, as my 2 year was running around.  My secret to a fast mani, Seche Vite!  This is a quick drying top coat that seals in your mani.  It also makes your nails look shiny and glossy.  I love this and I feel like I am cheating on Julep, but it is such a great top coat!.  You can buy it HERE on Amazon.

    I ordered November It Girl and added Sawyer. It should be here Thursday. I can’t wait!! I’ve been eyeing Blakey since I signed up in May and I found it in the Secret Store, so I grabbed the Northern Lights and added Petra. I’m addicted!! I ordered the sexy scarecrow set a cpl weeks ago and fell in love those eyeliners- like butter. Boy am I stoked to get these orders!! I’ve loved every Julep product. But I’m not sure of the difference between “my maven” and “a maven”? I pay $19.98 a box and I’m biiled monthly. Totally worth the $20 a month.

      If you joined before December (I think) last year, you are grandmothered in and pay $19.99/month. Julep introduced the “my maven” program, I think in December 2013. You can now customize each box how you like, instead of just picking It Girl, Classic with a twist etc. Boxes are now $24.99 for my mavens but you can pay $19.99/month if you subscribe 3 months at a time. I upgraded from my regular maven account to my maven so I can customize. You still keep your ability to skip if you upgrade.
