Julep’s Collection this month is themed around adventuring, and it’s one of those collections that left me in awe at first glance. These are gorgeous colours! Look how rich and pigmented they are… Ahhhh. How am I ever going to choose?!

It’s going to be Julep’s third birthday as well, so they have a special polish and some special boxes lined up to celebrate. The polish is named Queen Anne and the only way you can get it (for now) is by selecting either the Happy Mani-versary or Beauty Trailblazers boxes.

Let’s take a look!

The new beauty item for this month is a series of Gel Eye Gliders that claim to be waterproof and last for 10+ hours. I love a good eyeliner gel so I’m really excited to give these a try! They’re $9.99 each if you don’t get them in your box, and the non-Maven price is going to be $16.99.

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.

I ended up completely customizing my box this month. I live in gel eyeliner so I had to try out the gliders! I got the Rich Brown Gel Eye Glider, as well as two gorgeously jewel-toned polishes: Neha (Bombshell) and Waleska (Boho Glam).

A lot of the items were already sold out by the time I logged on, but I saw on the Julep Facebook page that some of the things that are currently out of stock will be re-stocked in the next couple of days. So my suggestion would be to pick up your second (or third) choice, and then check in periodically and update if your first choice comes back in stock. It’s not the ideal method but we have to work with what we have, right?

The selection window is open from the 20th to 24th, so if you haven’t logged in to make your selections yet get on it!
