Giveaway! Julep Maven Introductory Box

I am so happy that I was accepted to a part of the Julep VIP bloggers program. I have been with Julep as a Maven since February of this year, and am always excited to preview the boxes on the 25th of each month and try out the polishes in my style profile. Now if you're not a Maven, here's a chance to win a Julep intro box!

American Beauty - comes with Pedi Prep; Eva (raspberry cream); Renee (lilac cream)
Boho Glam - comes with Pedi Prep; Hayden (peach cream); Courteney (lime cream)
Bombshell  - comes with Pedi Prep; Oscar (gold glitter); Natasha (vibrant orange)
Classic with a Twist - comes with Pedi Prep; Robin (blue cream); Rose (watermelon cream)
IT Girl - comes with Lily (fushia cream); Daisy (lemon cream); Sasha (melon cream)
These are the boxes you can choose from if you win the giveaway! If you want more information on the boxes and style profiles, click here. I was also able to try and review one of these boxes and I chose Bombshell. My Maven style profile is IT girl and so I wanted to try a style I haven't before. I am anxiously awaiting it's arrival and will post a swatch and review when it gets here.

Ok, so what is Julep Maven exactly? If you haven't heard of this company before, read on; but if you know all about Julep and are itching to enter the contest, scroll down to the bottom of this post.

Julep is actually a Washington-based boutique nail salon, but they also sell their products and formulations online through their website.They donate $1 of every sale of nail polish to organizations that benefit and empower women. Their polish is also free of DBP, toluene, formaldehyde and formaldehyde resin.

Julep Maven is their monthly club that gives you access to their latest polishes and products for $19.99/ month. It works like this. You take a quick style quiz that will help you get the best colours for you; depending on your answers you can get one of five possible style profiles (American Beauty, Boho Glam, Bombshell, Classic with a Twist or IT Girl). Then you wait for your first box to arrive. After that, you will receive an email preview of your next month's Maven box on the 20th of each month. You have several choices at this point; do nothing and your box will ship out, or submit a request to try a new style that month, send the box to a friend, or skip the month. You can cancel your membership at any time.

Every month you always get at least double the value in your Maven box - I've averaged out past boxes at being worth $42, $46, $50 + . You also have the chance every month to win a golden box - that basically means if you are one of the lucky ones that month you get all five style profiles -  for $19.99! (Click here to see one lucky blogger's Julep Maven golden box).

There are also perks to being a Maven, 20% off all purchases outside your monthly box in the Maven boutique; free shipping on Maven boxes and all boutique purchases; discounts and bonuses throughout the year and returns and exchanges on product. And you also get a referral link - for every two friends that sign up for Julep through your link - you get a free month!

If you love what you see and want to jump on the Julep Maven bandwagon right now - I'd love it if you used my referral code and sign up to be a member here. Your introductory box is only a penny (free shipping too), just use code MAVENINTRO at checkout.

Now for the giveaway. Just enter using the rafflecopter form below. Open to Canada/U.S. residents; contest closes July 27. This contest is for an intro box and you will not be subscribed into the Maven program if you win (if you love the box, consider subscribing though!)
