I will be covering these points Packaging, Subscription, Product Reviews with Pros & Cons and My Final Thoughts. So lets get started!
Packaging: Your products will come in a pretty purple tone box and packaged with love. I really like the color they chose for the box and the way they package something so small is too cute. It would make a great gift for a nail polish lover and you don't have to worry about anything arriving broken/damaged.
Subscription: To subscribe all I did was went online and did the free box intro for new subscription subscribers. It was really easy to sign up and all I had to pay was the shipping fee of $3. The packed was sent to me in less than a week, I'm not even joking it was super duper fast. But since this is a subscription test out, a week later I wanted to see how easy it was to unsubscribe because let's be real maybe you didn't like the box/service, only wanted to see the box or couldn't afford it right now. It should be as easy to unsubscribe as it was too subscribe... Well it wasn't! I looked everywhere on the site to unsubscribe Intel it got to the point I had to go to the FAQ section. That is where I found the answer of only two choices and one alternative. You could skip the month between the 20th-24th. I would us that skip if I couldn't afford it that month. But if your just all done completely you have to call then to unsubscribe. That is ridiculous, and I refused to call! Because I know they would just talk my ear off and try to get me to stay. I had past experience with another subscription service trying to do that to me. So I went with the other alternative that they didn't suggest but I do and that's emailing them and that is what I did and suggest you do if you need too.
Product Review: I received four products altogether, three nail polishes and one lip gloss. Starting off with the nail polishes I really like them. The brush is the perfect size for us small nail people but still perfect for longer nails. It's a win-win with the brush. When it comes to the application one coat is enough but I always like to put two to fix up any sloppy work I created. When it comes to the packaging of the nail polish it's what I would consider fancy and realistic. It sleek enough to store about anywhere and stylish enough to look great as decoration. When it comes to ingredients they are vegan and have a 5 free formula. My favorite is the strengthening ingredients that also lets your nails breath. I have notice that nails have been growing since wearing the polish and it's not breaking off. The other positive to these nail polishes are their lasting power. When I applied mine I didn't use a base nor a top coat. All I did was make sure my nails were free of any oil (going over the nails with nail polish remover). They lasted 1 week with the last day showing massive pillage.
I got the colors Shelly -it girl, Vicki - classic with a twist and Flora - it girl. Out of the ones I received, I would recommend you getting Flora because this color is legit the same pretty color as the Julep Maven box and I have never seen a color like it. The other one you need is Shelly because this turquoise color is perfect for spring/summer.
Now let's talk about the lip gloss. I received the color Graceful which is a very pretty milky pink color in the tube but don't transfer over to my lip color looking like that which is a shame since it is so pretty. It does have a doe foot wound and smells like legit pink colored Starburst. The packaging of the lip gloss is super pretty and I actually want more of them. I just hope the other colors have more of a pigment too them.
Pros- lasting power, color pigmentation, vegan, great for small nails, has good nail benefits, worth the price
Cons- lip gloss has not pigment, can't unsubscribe by yourself
My Final Thoughts: I really liked getting this box and for a real subscription box price of $25, it's worth every penny if your a nail polish lover. The only thing that makes me shy away is the fact that your basically kinda stuck in a subscription to say. I don't like the fact that you can sign up by yourself but you can't unsubscribe the same way. So I would really take that into consideration before signing up to the Julep Maven box.
