Julep Maven May 2014 Selections are Open - The Fresh Twist Collection!

The May Maven Selection window opened up yesterday! This is the month a lot of people were waiting for, since it brought with it the premier of the Julep Plié Wand. I won't go into it too much, but basically Julep has created a new ergonomic polishing brush. (You can find out more about it on their blog if you want.)

The wand comes in all of the normal polish boxes, and to make sure everyone finds a box they want there are 7 boxes to choose from this month. SEVEN. That's ridiculous, but awesome.

Julep also announced that as of June you will be able to upgrade to a fully customizable box (for more $$ of course) - this will be called Maven Luxe and you can find out more about it here.

Now, let's take a look at the May boxes!

I'm excited to try the new Plié Wand, though I also think the Core Classics Box for this month is a steal. For now I've settled on the It Girl box (changed my mind!) Bombshell Box with the Creativity Kit add-on (I'm on the hunt for a good striping brush). If I didn't have the majority of the shades in the Mod Art Kit already then I would totally be picking that up instead; five full-sized polishes and the Creativity Kit? That's an amazingly good deal.

May is also a double points month, so where you would usually get 300 Jules for taking your monthly box instead you get 600! (Same goes for upgrades - where the polish lovers upgrade normally gets you 650 points now you get 1300, etc.) This is for one month only, so get on it. :)

The monthly box program is $19.99 US (they ship to Canada and the US), and as a Maven you get free shipping. If you're interested in signing up for the Julep Maven program you're welcome to use my referral link, and remember to use the code FREEBOX at the checkout to get your first month free!

Let me know what you think, and which box you're thinking about picking up this month!

Thanks for visiting!! xx

  1. I love your blog! And I love that you're a Maven, so I can see what other people like and don't like each month, haha. Last month I hated all the colors, and this month I LOVE them all. But I can't afford the upgrade, so Boho Glam it is :) If you get the dotting and striping attachments, you should post and let us know what you think of them!

    1. That's so lovely to hear!! Thank you! :) I agree, I love seeing what other people get in their Maven boxes!! I wasn't really feeling last month or this month, but the Julep boxes are my one consistent splurge/self-care investment every month so I picked one up anyway... To be honest, I feel the months that I feel 'meh' about the polish colours is the months that when I get it I fall in love with them immediately!

      I'm totally getting the attachments, and I'll be sure to make a post about how they work and compare them to the other brushes and dotting tools that I have.... I'm excited to potentially finally have a striping brush that I like! Fingers crossed!

    1. Hahah, I totally had it in my basket the first time. But I feel like I already have enough pastels (gasp) and I kind of like how bright the Bombshell colours are.... We'll see if I end up regretting it!! :P
