My March Julep Maven Box


For March, the general theme was pastels. For my Julep Maven box, I selected Boho Glam because I liked the colors the best AND wanted the hand lotion. I also decided to add another color because the collection this month was honestly full of great polishes. Here's what came in my box:

- 2 polishes ($14 each)
- Rock Star Hand Creme (3 oz $20)
- Extra: Julep Strawberry-Mint Lip Balm
The hand creme smells (and looks) like something from Bath & Body Works. Anti-aging, emollient blend of shea butter, glycerin, coconut oil, and vitamin E keeps hands hydrated, even after washing. This non-greasy, fast-absorbing formula will leave you cheering for an encore.
The strawberry-mint lip balm is not listed on the site so Mavens must have gotten the exclusive. It reminded me a lot of a lip smacker being slightly tinted and scented. I personally liked the baby pink as it looked good against my complexion. Might not work for everybody. Found it hydrating and lasted a long time. Will be throwing in my purse!


Leila is a "lemon yellow opalescent shimmer" that has a light shimmer to it. A great Easter color.


Joy is described as a "smoky mauve crème" or a dusty rose I'd say. I loved the color!


I also added on Teri from the It Girl box which is described as a "tropical coral pink crème." Loved the color but the formula was a little difficult.

This was a very girlie box but I'd use all of the products in it. Just wish there was some candy or treat!

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

    I really like all of these shades! Perfect for spring time! I really like how the yellow is soft and not ridiculously loud.

  4. Hi Kimberlee, just wanted to see what you shared for this week's Nail Files. I ordered the It Girl box so I received Teri too. I love it just as much as I love the lip balm!

  9. I skipped this month. Teri was the only one I wanted. I'm going to pick up Rock Star the next time I go into a parlor though. I wish I could get that lip balm!

  11. Oh the Teri color is pretty. I got the Boho Glam box as well although seeing all the other post I think I should of gotten all of them.. Ha Ha I added on the Grey creme and the pistachio color Names are escaping me at the moment. How do you like the Hand creme? I thought it was a bit greasy.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog this week and saying Hi.

    1. lol I wanted all of them too. I thought the hand cream was VERY similar to their old hand cream. Honestly think they just repackaged because it had the same feel and smell. I didn't think it was greasy though.
