November 2012 Julep Maven ~ American Beauty Box

Posted on: November 1, 2012

Julep does such a great job of packaging, their boxes are a joy to open. You know there will be great little treats inside. This box was no different and was packaged so carefully. I’m such a sucker for great packaging!

Included in the American Beauty box for November 2012 was 3 sample packets of nail polish remover pads, a 4ounce tub of body “frosting” and 2 bottles of Julep nail polish. Both bottles have the matte suede finish. I got the colors Brit, which is silver and Amber which is a golden amber color. I love the smell of the body frosting and it really does look like frosting, smells like frosting. I haven’t tasted it but it is tempting. I have loved every single body product I’ve tried from Julep. I’ve used their pedicure products, great all of them, a pomegranate moisturizing cream, great and now the body frosting. I’m sure I will love it just as much!

This is the color Brit, one coat, no top coat. I did try on a top coat after I took the picture and it made no difference in the color or texture of the polish. Which kind of surprised me. It just made them shinier. I do like this one I have on, but I’m not crazy about the amber colored one. My only disappointment with this month’s box is that both polishes have the matte suede finish. I think it is a nice polish, and I like the finish, but for me, 1 bottle of this is plenty. I feel the same way about crackle and glitter polishes, 1 bottle is enough! I do have a friend in mind to send the amber one to so all is not lost!

This is Anne from Julep,one of my favorite polish colors. This was in my first box from Julep. Julep is a subscription service where for $19.99 a month they will send you a box. They make it very easy to skip a month, send to a friend or to cancel. I have had this subscription for almost a year which is longer than any other subscription services I’ve tried. Julep is still offering your first box for ONE CENT. Go to Julep and use the code COLOR2012 or PENNY to get your first box for only one cent. This is not an affiliate link and I do not get any points for you going. They have done away with that program.

And, don’t forget about my blog only give away! Ends tomorrow! Good Luck!

💅As always, thanks for stopping by!

Judi, I saw your YT video where you mentioned the 1 cent offer! You got me so intrigued that I signed up for it over the weekend 🙂 the one thing I noticed was that I got my add-ons first, they came in yesterday (loved the fast shipping) I got the fast drying drops but my bottle was not completely filled or some of it leaked onto the box so I took a picture of it and email it to them, so we’ll see what happens with that, I also picked up Gayle which is a nice purple and I can’t wait for my actual box to get here! Thank you so much for your reviews! xoxo


I’m so glad! You will have to let me know how you like your first box. I forgot but I have Gayle too, haven’t worn it yet. It’s so pretty I don’t know why I haven’t tried it yet! Thanks for the comment Ana, I appreciate it. Xoxo

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
