So many of you may have already heard of the nail polish version of Birchbox. If you haven't, it's a monthly subscription, similar to a magazine, that comes with new samples of polish that is not available yet in stores.
This is their fancy description about their Julep Maven program:
"When we launch new products, we start out by creating beautiful sneak peek sets to send out to the top beauty editors and celebrity trendsetters across the country for their consideration and review. And our girlfriends are always asking to sneak them an extra set. Now they can - and so can you. We launched our new Julep Maven program to give all of our girlfriends access to the beauty editor Sneak Peek Box we create every month. As a Julep Maven, you will have access to the hottest trends in nail color and the latest Mani Care and Pedi Care products - delivered right to your doorstep, just like the beauty editors do. And you'll have access to these trends and products before anyone else.
We know that tailoring and customizing each editor delivery is critical to gaining her attention and enthusiasm, so every Sneak Peek Box we send you will be tailored to your needs and preferences. Just take our fun and easy Julep Maven Style Quiz to help us understand your style profile.
Then each month, we'll send you an email to let you know what we've curated for you in your customized beauty editor Sneak Peek Box. If you don't like what you see, you can request another "shelf pull."
Or choose to send your Sneak Peek Box to a girlfriend as a gift - every month's set comes beautifully packaged and ready to gift.
Welcome to VIP treatment - because your opinion matters to us. YOU are our favorite beauty editor!"
Sounds totally great, right? ehhhhh sure.
The first introductory month is on special right now for $5. Then after that, it's 19.99. You get 2 colors and then lotion and cuticle oil?! That's what the picture shows. They say its $40 worth of product. I just don't know how I feel about all this.
