Julep Maven box was "inspired by bright lights and bold dreams." While many of the polishes from the September boxes looked pretty, they appeared similar to shades I already had in my collection. Instead of polish this month, I was tempted by the two beauty products included in the month's Modern Beauty box.
Bare Face Cleansing Oil and a Blank Canvas Mattifying Face Primer. As someone with oily skin, I was curious to test out the primer and I was also really excited to try my first cleansing oil. I couldn't resist ordering a box this month.
BECCA Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, it just doesn't deliver.
Overall, the September Julep Maven Modern Beauty box was a little hit and miss for me. Thus far I'm generally enjoying the Bare Face Cleansing Oil but find the Blank Canvas Mattifying Face Primer to be a disappointment.
The Julep Maven boxes retail for $29.99/month and are guaranteed to include at least $40 in product. The retail value of my September Modern Beauty box was $56.00.
If you're interested in signing up for Julep Maven, you can get your first box free by entering the code "FREEBOX" during checkout. You are free to cancel at anytime, but my favorite aspect of the Maven program is that each month you are able to preview your box and you may choose to skip any given month to avoid paying for that month's box. The program is pretty much risk-free. I've been a very happy subscriber since the program launched.
