Most of us here at Beauty Blog are such a girly girls and if you are like us, we just LOVE having our nails done. We subscribe to so many Beauty Box monthly subscriptions that it’s insane. Most of them have a nail polish as one of the makeup items in the box and those are our favorite ones to receive. (We can’t tell you the last time any of us actually purchased nail polish from a store!).
We thought we would share the good, bad and ugly of all the ones we have subscribed to and then you can decide which one of the beauty box subscriptions is right for you. There will be a review of each one posted every few days so make sure to check back to see them all. There will also be a link to each one on the right side of the page so that you can go check them out for yourself.
Ok, so not all of them require you to get a box every month. Some allow you to pick when and how often you want to receive a beauty box. If that suits you, then you probably want to investigate Ipsy or Birchbox. They will send you a beauty box every three months or so. Usually there is a super cute full sized nail polish in those boxes. (I will review these in depth in upcoming posts) but for now let’s start with monthly subscriptions.
MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION – $24.99/mo. ($40 value – You can also prepay for a 3 months and save $5/mo.) FREE SHIPPING TOO.
Once you subscribe, Julep Maven beauty boxes are delivered nail polish to your door every month.
Here’s how it works:
- You take their quick style profile quiz and they determine which box matches your style best.
- You can switch out what’s in your box each month so that there are no surprises – you know what you are getting.
- Each month on the 20th they come out with a new collection. You can stay with the colors based on the style originally picked for you or change to a different box. It’s up to you.
Some of the boxes original profile boxes they decide on for you, like Classic with a Twist, Boho Glam, Modern Beauty and Bombshell come with (2) nail polishes and (1) signature beauty product. It Girl comes with (3) nail polishes and Modern Beauty comes with (2) nail polishes.
One thing that I just mentioned above is that you also get to pick (1) beauty product for your box. They say the $$ value of the nail polish is somewhere around $14/bottle and the product is anywhere from $25-$35. If you think about it, the value of each box is approximately $50 so it’s a real savings to get the entire box for $19.99. They also give you perks like discounts on other purchases and free shipping sometimes.
What’s really the coolest thing is that once a month for 72 hours they open up the “Secret Store” and let you buy nail polish and other items at a very deep discount
