My Julep Maven November "Classic with a Twist" Box

Guess what arrived in my mail today? My Julep Maven November 2012 "Classic with a Twist" Box. 
And here's what was inside: 

I was pleasantly surprised to find a little extra special gift from Julep for hitting my 1 year anniversary with the company. Has it been that long already? Julep is great for making these gestures for their customers. 

I tried a little bit of the the frosting on my hands. It feels great, but I'm not all that thrilled with the smell. In my opinion, it's really strong. 

They didn't show these in the previews, so these wipes were another pleasant surprise. 

Here is a single coat of Brit: No Gloss

Single coat of Brit: With Gloss

Single coat of Minka: no gloss

So what do you think of this month's box? What did you get in yours? 

If you aren't a Maven and are interested in becoming one, Julep is currently running a special where you can get your introductory box for just one penny simply by using the code "COLOR2012"  at check out.

There is no obligation to continue your subscription, you cancel at any time. Or you have several options each month: you can skip the month without charge, choose another style for the month, or send your box to a friend. It's up to you!!! Here is a referring link if you want to check them out. Take their brief style quiz and find out which box Julep has chosen for you.

For just a penny, what have you got to lose?? It's certainly worth seeing what all the buzz is about. I know I personally love getting these boxes each month.


  1. I got Minka as an add on! Love the dusty red in the matte, but had no idea it would have such character with gloss! Gorgeous!

    1. I'm a huge fan of matte finish polish. My number one reason is the excitement I get watching it transform with gloss. I've even seen lovely manis where people did a stamping design with clear gloss over a matte finish polish. It makes a lovely design on the polish.

  2. awesome!! that gift is pretty nice:) Have you been a member for a year or have you ordered 12 times?? ANd if its been a year, did you skip any? Wondering if I should make sure to get it when its been a year...hehehe. Sneaky me:) I skipped this month because I had to but I am disappointed. Really wanted these new ones...

    1. It has been a calendar year since my first Maven box. They have only been around for a few months longer than that. I have almost been with them since they started. I haven't skipped a box yet. Although, I used to be a die hard purchaser of the Mystery Boxes and I cut those out of my budget for now.

  3. ooh!! I skipped this month =.= lol! What does the frosting do?! is it like lotion? or a scrub?

    1. It's a really thick lotion. It's alright. Not the best I've ever used, but I go through a lot of lotion, so I'm sure I'll use it. :)
