Julep Maven Review - April 2014 - Beauty Subscription Box + PROMO CODES

This post includes affiliate links.

What is it? Julep Maven
How Much? $19.99 per month, shipping included
What’s in it? At least $40 worth of products chosen depending on your style profile, or upgrade your box for an additional fee and get the entire collection.

The April's theme is The Vivid Collection. It's a collection full of bright, vibrant polish colours for Spring, as well as new blush and bronzer products. This post is FULL of promo codes as Julep has gone a little promo crazy over the past month.

First look

I opted for the Modern Beauty box this month, which includes a blush and a bronzer. None of the polish colours really grabbed me, plus I don't really need any more nail polish in my collection.

Julep is still offering the PERK10 promo code. Get $10 off your next purchase of $20 or more. The offer only applies to regular store purchases, excluding Savvy Deals. Deal expires May 31, 2014.

But why settle for $10 off when you can get $20 off instead? Use promo code SPRING20 to save $20 off store orders of $50 or more. This one expires at 11:59pm Pacific time on April 18th, 2014. Same rules and restrictions apply.

Julep GLOW Pore Minimizing Blush in Peach Bellini ($24)
I really like this colour. It's a good every day, all purpose shade. 

Julep GLOW Pore Minimizing Bronzer in Light Golden Bronze ($28)
I don't use bronzer at all but thought I would give it a try. If it doesn't work out I will gift it to my sister. The reviews of this product on Julep's site are terrible.

And because I am just a subscription box reviewer, and don't know SFA about cosmetics, I will now direct you to Robyn from Brightest Bulb in the Box. I suggest you read her opinion on the blush and bronzer here. She debunks some of the claims Julep makes about these two products.

I didn't purchase the accompanying brushes, but if you are interested in the Julep Blush Brush or Julep Bronzer Brush, you can get 25% off until April 30, 2014 with promo code GLOW25.

My April Julep Maven box is really quite boring now that I look at the picture. I received two products this month, which Julep says are valued at $52 combined. I do like the blush and will likely add it into my rotation for basic makeup looks. The bronzer ended up being a no-go for me. It's too dark and I have no clue how to blend it well to make it work. It goes in the gift pile.

If you are interested in joining the Julep Maven to get your own monthly Maven box, click here. Don't forget to use promo code FREEBOX to get your first box free. Just pay $4.95 shipping. Next month features the coveted and highly promoted Julep Plie Wand.
