Julep Maven 2018 Birthday Gift Review Free Nail Polish – Zodiac Collection Passionate Pisces

Julep used to award 200 Jules for your birthday. Read my last subscription box review to learn about Jules and how they work. When my birthday passed and my Jules did not arrive, I reached out to customer service to see if they eliminated the birthday gift. The main reason was to update my master list of birthday beauty offers, but I am almost always willing to place an order when the deal is right. Customer service responded that Jules are no longer awarded for your birthday. There is a new birthday offer for 2018, but I had to write back to see what it was. I never received any birthday offers from Julep at all this year.

Julep Zodiac Collection Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Capricorn

I spent all of 2014 and 2015 collecting the Julep birthstones. My plan was to collect every birthstone in 2016 as well. Julep decided to forgo the Birthstone Collection this year to focus on the Zodiac Collection. Each sign released before the introduction to the new period. Julep sold a new set of Zodiac polishes for 2017, but I have not purchased any of those yet. Pisces may land in my collection, but I am unsure if I want to own all the others yet. These are from 2016, but are still available for purchase. Thus, I decided to round out my series on this collection with the last 3 polishes. Any other nail polishes I collected during my blogging break are only swatched in their respective Nail Polish Swatch article. I am not writing any articles on them.

Julep Yumi and Zodiac Collection Libra Review

I spent all of 2014 and 2015 collecting the Julep birthstones. My plan was to collect every birthstone in 2016 as well. Julep decided to forgo the Birthstone Collection this year to focus on the Zodiac Collection. Each sign releases before the introduction to the new period. That means we can expect each sign to release before the secret store opens. Thanks to a great code in my September Julep Subscription Box, I was able to place this order before the item hit the secret store.

Julep Zodiac Review Leo

I spent all of 2014 and 2015 collecting the Julep birthstones. My plan was to collect every birthstone in 2016 as well. Julep decided to forgo the Birthstone Collection this year to focus on the Zodiac Collection. Each sign releases before the introduction to the new period. That means we can expect each sign to release before the secret store opens. Thanks to a great code in my July Julep Subscription Box, I was able to place this order before the item hit the secret store. This was the first order I’ve ever paid sales tax on. The August selection email notified everyone in my state and about 10 others that we will start paying sales tax, so I expected this.

Julep Cancer

I obviously love Julep nail polish, but I think a lot of items in their lip range are equally impressive. When I saw they were releasing a new product, a Lip Butter for the July 2016 Maven box, I decided to order two. My Julep Maven Subscription Boxes usually arrive between the 5th and the 9th with a few anomalies in either direction. On 06/29/16, I received an email stating my box was delayed with a code that offered 20% off as an apology. Usually Julep just gives added Jules as a delayed shipping bonus, so this coupon code was different. The email said this code, JULY20 works on anything, even items in the secret store.

Julep Maven June 2016 Subscription Box Review and Gemini from The Zodiac Collection

When it comes to nail polish, I am a huge fan of Julep’s five free formula. These polishes chip less than most, and the polishes themselves are a good deal when you have a Maven membership. They are quality polishes, so I would probably purchase them at $14 each if I did not have my Maven membership. Luckily, I do not have to pay that much. The color selections and polish finishes are more vast than almost any other nail polish line. Every month, they release seven to nine new colors (and at times re-release 1-2 from the vault). I have not skipped a box since I first subscribed in May 2014, because I find something I want every month. More often than not, the nail polishes are what draw me in, but I like to try Julep’s beauty products as well.

Julep Aries and Taurus

I spent all of 2014 and 2015 collecting the Julep birthstones. My plan was to collect every birthstone in 2016 as well. Julep decided to forgo the Birthstone Collection this year to focus on the Zodiac Collection. Each sign releases before the introduction to the new period. That means we can expect each sign to release before the secret store opens. Thanks to a wonderful Leap Day sale that did not exclude codes, I was able to get two polishes free with this order.

Julep Aquarius and a Secret Store Haul

I spent all of 2014 and 2015 collecting the Julep birthstones. My plan was to collect every birthstone in 2016 as well. Julep decided to forgo the Birthstone Collection this year to focus on the Zodiac Collection. Each sign releases prior to the introduction to the new period. That means we can expect each sign to release before the secret store opens. Generally, I suggest purchasing special polishes outside of the secret store, because you usually cannot apply a discount code to secret store purchases. February marks the second month in a row where Julep released a secret store code. That means waiting to purchase your Zodiac polish until the secret store opens will probably save you a lot of money this year.
