My September Julep Maven Box


It's finally here! I've been impatiently waiting for this month's Julep Maven box because they partnered with Trina Turk for exclusive fall nail colors. I choose the "Classic With a Twist" box because the colors seemed to be closest to the ones I'd want to wear for fall. I loved the YSL quote included:




Here's what I got:

- 2 nail polishes: Sophie and Brandt
- American Beauty Volumizing Mascara in Jet Black $24

Bristle comb brush... not the style I typically go for

Julep has slowly moved into the beauty world with adding mascara to their repertoire. This volumizing mascara features lash growth enhancement ingredients and micro-fiber applicator which separates, conditions, and plumps individual lashes. I didn't think it was very volumizing. It would be a good mascara to help separate lashes first like CoverGirl's LashBlast 24 HR mascara then layer another mascara on top. I also need to use waterproof otherwise my eyes get irritated.


Brandt is described as opaque off-black crème that reminded me a lot of the Birchbox/Color Club polish I received this month.


Sophie is described as a chic truffle mushroom crème or as I'd say a greige (gray/beige). I think it would look cute with Brandt as polka dots.

I kind of wish they added some extras like they usually do. The box seemed kind of bare. But I really liked the colors. They will be great additions to my fall nail collection!

What did you get in your Julep Maven box this month?

  1. I skipped my Julep box last month, but the colors turned out really well. Those will be great colors for the fall and winter!

  4. I'm so glad you are wearing the Julep brandt color because I have that and have not used it yet, so now I get to see what it looks like before opening it. It seems a little darker than I was hoping, so I might add it to a giveaway.

    Love that YSL quote too.

    1. It is pretty dark. Perhaps you could add some white to lighten it?

  5. I was tempted to add Brandt to my box as an add-on, but I tried Otte instead and loved it! I was NOT a fan of the mascara though..it just made my eyelashes super clumpy
