Julep - February 2015 (The Afterglow Collection)

Julep is a monthly nail polish subscription box (as well as the occasional beauty/skin product), and it's amazing. It's so addictive to receive new polishes every month and be able to pick what you want to get. There currently now is MyMaven for $24.99/month or $19.99/month if you prepay for three months and Maven Luxe for $39.99/month. My Maven gets you the regular boxes each month and you can swap out products for the ones they have selected. Maven Luxe works the same way, but it's for higher valued items. You can now skip regardless of when you signed up for you account, which is a great incentive! 

There is still the referral program in place, and each referral earns you $15 to spend in the store. The Jules are still being earned and used, but they are only earned if you take the box or anniversaries and can be used either on monthly boxes or in the Jule Box. Still one of the best bonuses of being a Maven is that you receive 20% off all store items and free shipping on all orders!

This month, the Afterglow Collection, introduced the Glow Highlighting Powder and Fan Brush as well as the new colors. Once again, I got the Polish Lover's Upgrade, because I always feel like I need all of the colors!

I loved most of this month's colors, and I'm definitely loving the teal and the purples (as always). As always, if someone wants a swatch of anything, I'll make sure to get it up!
