Julep Maven “It Girl” Intro Box

Julep Sienna
Nanette Lepore, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch


Hey dolls, a couple of weeks ago, I posted here that I had signed up for a Julep Maven box. My box arrived on Thursday and I was super excited to see the goodies in person. The box comes nicely packaged in a sleek black box. Inside of the box is a Julep bag that contains your nail goodies for the month. Here’s what I got:

Your intro box comes with a welcome letter from the founder and a summary of the Maven program. Pictured above is Sienna (gold), Emilee (green), base coat, Facial for Hands Glycolic Hand Scrub, along with samples of the hand scrub and hand cream. I used the hand scrub this morning and my hands still feel great. It has a nice citrus-like smell that isn’t too overwhelming. I’ll give a full review of this product once I’ve used it more.

First, I used the Julep base coat, which dried quickly and very shiny. It would be great if you wanted to go “naked” for a day or so. I chose to apply Sienna first because I wanted a lighter shade as I’ve been wearing dark colors all week. Sienna is described as a sophisticated, shimmery gold. The formula was very pigmented and was nearly opaque in 1 coat. I applied 2 coats to try to even out some of the brush strokes. The brush on this polish was amazing…it allowed the polish to go right where I wanted it. I barely had to do any clean-up. Dry time was relatively quick as well. I was worried about the shape of the bottle and it being unstable, but its fine as long as you’re working on a hard surface. Onto the pictures:


I love this color in the bottle, but I’m not a fan of it on me. It reads more silver on my skin which I tend not to like. Because of how opaque it is, I think this color would be good for stamping. Who am I kidding though, I barely stamp. I may try this again in some simple nail art or it may go onto my swap list. I’m pleased with the Juelp Maven program so far, just not this color on me.
