Julep Maven Box #5: It-Girl December 2011 & 1-Cent Sign Up Deal
|January 15, 2012||Posted by peach_ under Julep Maven|
December 2011? Really?
Yes, really! :D There was a mix-up with the mailing system (beyond Julep’s control) so I only got my hands on last month’s It Girl Julep Maven Box a week ago. I suppose it worked in my favor as its contents aren’t time-sensitive with holiday colors and prints, so no worries there!
It was the first month Julep made all the other box choices visible right on their site instead of having to manually request them via email. After going through the options, I stuck with my original It Girl box.
Included in the December 2011 It Girl box:
- Helena Nail Vernis (swatched here), an ultra-saturated fuchsia (reg. $14)
- Fast Dry Topcoat (reg. $14)
- Rivets Nail Appliqué (reg. $14)
- Pot of glitter, a surprise freebie!
That totals to $42 worth of products for USD $19.99, as usual. Not bad at all.
I’m pleased to find Helena is true to their description; it’s a vivid fuchsia that’s less pink than in their promotion photo. I’ve been wanting to try stick-on nail polish, so I can’t wait to try it!
Which style box did you choose for December? What did you think?
By the way, I know many of you are already “Mavens,” but for those in the US & Canada who aren’t already, there is a currently a deal to get your first box for a penny!
