Julep was kind enough to send me one of their Introductory Boxes to review for you guys and they were even more kind to offer one to give away to my readers! There will be more on that at the end of the post! Since my box happened to come in December, I found that it was all decked out for the holidays! Everything was packaged very well and arrived safely to me.
The photo below shows the contents of my Introductory Box. I got Julep Nail Therapy, nail polishes in Kim, Trina, and Christina, a little pot of nail art sequins, and samples of their Hand Brightener cream and SPF 30 hand lotion.
Every box comes with a little card that has a description of what your box contains. "It Girl" was the style profile that I chose for my review, but there are many other style profiles to choose from. When you sign up for the Maven program, you need to take their Style Quiz to figure out which profile you would be. However, if you don't like what your box contains, you can always contact Julep and switch your profile. Their customer service has been top-notch in my experience.
Let's start off with Kim, shall we? Like my card says, Kim is a beautiful gunmetal gray shade with gorgeous shimmer. The formula was a little thinner than I'm used to with Julep and I had to use three coats to get what you see here. Two would have been okay, but three made Kim just a bit darker and more smokey.
Next up is the beautiful Christina. I can see myself wearing this on my toes all summer! Christina is a fiery orange-red with golden shimmer. Absolutely gorgeous and perfect in two coats. You can see a bit of VNL in the photo, but it wasn't noticeable in person.
Last but certainly not least is Trina, a deep purple shimmer. Trina is absolutely flawless. The formula was amazing and would have been perfect in one coat, but I did two here out of habit. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up before winter is over! :)
