Julep Maven October Box || Bombshell (Nail Polish Pictures & Review)

Hello there! Today I am sharing some pictures of my latest Julep Maven box. October's box (I went witht the "Bombshell" style this time around" came with 2 polishes, a double ended kajal eyeliner and sharpener. I also chose an "add on" this month because I needed the awesome black & gold glitter:

Mmmmm...candy corns

First, here's the Kajal eyeliner- one end is black, the other brown. I was actually very impressed with this product!  I've used both colors and they glide on effortlessly and STAY, especially on the waterline (which is an infamously difficult feat). I love that Julep included a compatible sharpener, since I've found from experience, some other sharpeners are NOT "one size fits all brands".





Onward to the polishes!

Here's Cleopatra, which is a fabulous "black latex" finish polish. I expected this to be similar in texture to a matte polish, which tends to be on the thicker side, but I was pleasantly surprised by it's thin, easy to work with texture. This is 2 layers of polish here (no top coat, so that the rubbery, waxy finish stays):

 Valerie is a deep, dark teal with a fine gold shimmer. Totally lovely for Fall (2 layers):

Beatrix is clear based glitter with a mix of black and gold (one layer on top of Valerie):


I really love when I LOVE everything in my monthly box. This one was completely awesome!  If you are unfamiliar with the Julep Maven program, here's how it works- each month you get a box of polish and other beauty items mailed to your home for $19.99. You have options, so you're not ever going to be stuck with something that you don't like. You always have the option to "Skip" the month as well if you want.  You can also earn points (to be used towards purchases) for referring friends to the program. If you'd like to try this out yourself, you can use my referral link here  and enter the promo code "FREEBOX" to get your first month for free- yes, totally free with no strings attached (you can call to cancel at any time).  This is a great way to try Julep out for yourself! (Disclosure: I earn points for each friend I refer).

How do you feel about this month's box?

  1. I'm a bombshell too! Somehow I missed the email for this month's box, which usually means that I look at the options and wish I had the chance to pick something else, but not this month! Don't you just love Cleo? She will be on my tips a lot this month since she seems very Halloween/office appropriate.
