Recap of recent changes to the Julep Maven Program:
Julep has recently changed the way their subscription service works. Previously the Julep Maven box was $19.99 monthly and you could sign up for one, three or six months. As I mentioned in the May Selection post Julep has now added a new tier to their boxes called My Maven for $24.99/month (or $59.97 for three months if you pre-pay - this works out to the original $19.99/month). With My Maven you can swap out any product in your box for a different product, making the box fully customizable. There's also a Maven Luxe level for $39.99/month ($34.99/month if you sign up for 3 months at a time) which will give you a fully customizable box plus one additional item of your choice. If you want to pay $19.99/month now you need to pre-pay 3 months at a time.

Right now if you sign up as a Maven, Julep has an awesome deal on where you use the code SHIPSHAPE at checkout to get $80 worth of nautical-themed additional products for free... If you've been thinking of signing up, now is the time! And if you're interested in signing up for the Julep Maven program you're welcome to use my referral link.

So what do you think of the choices this month? A lot of the polishes seem like copies of previous shades, and the beauty items aren't really jumping out at me... I really wish they had put the sunscreen in as the beauty item this month (or put it in as a swatch-out option!) because I'm certain I would pick up a box then. As it stands I'm actually debating skipping this month. Hmmm... Decisions decisions. Let me know what you think!!

Thanks for visiting! I should have the swatches up for the June 2014 box up within the next couple of days! :) See you then!

  1. I actually like most of the colours but they're probably not too unique.

    1. Yeah, they're pretty but I feel like I have most of them. :/ I ended up going with the Bomshell Box and swapping out the purple (I love it but I have 3 deep purples from Julep already) for the matte glitter from It Girl. Ho hum. lol

  2. I enrolled after they got rid of unlimited skips, and last month I decided I was already bored with them (after only 3 months!) and ended my subscription. I'm switching to Rainbow Honey's mystery bag subscription instead. While Julep has a couple colors this month that I like, they're pretty basic, so I could find them just as easily elsewhere at my leisure. No regrets.

    1. Yeah, I tend to just get them now out of habit... I would like to switch to a different program, but since I'm in Canada we have so few options. And the ones that ship here usually add extra $$ to ship outside of the states, and I can't justify spending that much money on things I might not even like. :( But I love seeing and hearing about the boxes other people get!
