Let me tell you this, I am very picky with the products that I use.
Nope, don't get me wrong. It doesn't have to come with a pricey tag, it has to be a great quality. I don't buy things just so I can look like I have lots of stuff. Thank you, but No thank you.
I may not have a lot of stuff. But I have a few. And a few that I really like and appreciate.
To cut my blibber-blabbers in short. I subscribed to Julep Maven.

I got my first box in the mail today, which by the way I got for only 1 Cent. Yep, you read that right. I only paid 1 Cent for my first box because they were running a promo last month, maybe it's still on going I am not certain. But just in case you want to try it, after selecting the box you want,
just type in promo code "NEWYEAR2012" or "COLOR2012" and VOILA! You'll get your first box for 1cent. Crazy isn't it?
And I know you're probably wondering if you can cancel after your first box, the answer is YES you may cancel anytime if you are not happy.
So? AM I happy? YES! I AM!
I love it.
Took the quiz and they Chose American Beauty for me.
I decided to stay with the box that they chose for me, and i'm happy I did. Because I love this 2 colors.
JULEP ANNE (Purple) and MARIA. (Copper-ish Pink)
Couldn't wait to paint my nails, so after shower, I applied MARIA on my nails. And right then and there? Maria had me at "hello" LOL
It was bloody awesome. I love the brush. I love the texture/quality of the product. It wasn't runny at all. And not too thick that sometimes makes it so hard to apply.
I used O.P.I's Base Coat.
Applied 1 coat of MARIA (that didn't sound right, LOL!)
The color payoff was insanely great! 1 coat was all I needed.
Applied O.P.I's Top Coat to finish! And right then and there, I became a fan!
No Strong Yucky Scent, it dried off quick.
What more can I ask for?
Another BOX please???
Inside my box was the two nail polish I mentioned and a full-sized Age Defying Hand Brightener.
And A Sample Packet of a SPF 30 Hand Cream.
I might buy a full size of their cream. It felt and looked really good on my hands. My hands looked so radiant after applying the cream. So nice. And it's also odor free which I like by the way.
So I guess you know now that I'm staying with JULEP and cannot wait for my next box, next month.
I'm SOLD. $19.99 will be worth every penny.
Great products deserves to be in my Vanity.
