Julep Maven Review + Giveaway ~ CLOSED



As most of you know, I am a nail polish junkie.  I have an obscenely large collection (all organized in drawers & color-coded, of course) - it is extremely rare for me to have bare nails.  So, I was thrilled when Julep contacted me about trying out their "Julep Maven" program.  I have been hearing amazing things about their products and couldn't wait to get my hands on it!  I received the Bombshell box with the items shown above - when you sign up for the monthly subscription ($19.99/month for $40 worth of product), you take a style quiz to determine which box will best suit your personal taste (other options are American Beauty, Boho Glam, Classic With a Twist & It Girl).

One of the things I really love about their products is that they are made without formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toulene & DBP.  Now that my daughter is at an age where she's asking me to paint her nails regularly, this is especially important to me.  I also was amazed at how nice the formula was - I chose to paint two coats with each color, but probably could have applied just one and there still would not have been visible streaks.

Eva: A rich raspberry creme - definitely a classic & looks good on every skintone


Sienna: A shimmering champagne gold - neutral enough for day + just the right amount of sparkle for evening

Julep has graciously offered to giveaway 1 of their Maven boxes, like what I received above, to a lucky PPF reader! Even better, the winner will get to pick which box they want (view all the options here)...

HOW TO ENTER:
1) Follow PPF on at least one of these platforms: FacebookTwitter or BlogLovin
2) Like Julep on Facebook
3) Leave a comment below with your email address & the box you would choose if you're our winner 

Can't wait to see if you won?  Sign up for their subscription program here & use code PENNYPINCHERFASHION to get your first month's intro box for just 1 penny - pretty fitting, right?!

And our winner is...

Amy

Congratulations - I will be emailing you to confirm your box of choice & get your mailing address so you can try out the Julep Maven products!  Thanks to all who entered!!
