I’ve been a Julep Maven for almost a year, but when Julep premiered their October boxes I was completely ready to pass yet again. It’s been a while since I’ve gotten a box – I sent one to Alli and we gave away one on The Daily Varnish – but when Julep decided to have a shatter-free box – I was over the moon for the simple yet classy chic colors. I simply couldn’t pass it up!
I love getting Julep boxes because it’s like opening a present every month! I love that things are wrapped inside! The glitter and the candy corn (not shown) were not wrapped up. Black and Orange glitter – perfect timing for Halloween!

Now, for the best part! Onto the polishes!! The October 2012 Maven’s Choice box featured three polishes – each of which was in another style box paired with a crackle partner in crime. Without a doubt the color that sold me on getting the Maven’s Choice box was Lisa – a warm pebble grey? Yes please!!
From Top to bottom the Maven’s choice polishes are:
- Keira – a deep merlot red creme (Bombshell)
- Lisa – a warm pebble grey cream (Boho Glam)
- Eloise – a smokey indigo blue creme (American Beauty)
I love these colors! It feels like a Fourth of July polish set that’s spot on for Fall. Another change I’ve noticed since the last box I received is that the label’s now contain the style the polish came from! Side Note:
according to my Style Quiz results I’m an American Beauty – though I almost always switch to another style.
Another bonus to Julep is that they are great with packaging. If we’re close to a holiday they’ll throw in some themed extras or candy with matching packing paper to get you in a festive mood. After opening the box I’m about ready to go trick-or-treating a month early!
This month included two glitters: orange and black for Halloween – of course! I’ll probably send them to Alli because I’m certain she can be far more creative with these than I can – but they are fun nonetheless!
So, ladies – what do you think? If you’re already a Maven I’d love to know what box you got and what you think! If you’d like to be a Maven simply click here, take the style quiz, and voila!
I’ll leave you with some “Simply Bewitching” words of wisdom from Julep…I kind of like it.
