Julep October 2013 Maven Selection – The Rebel Set

OldMaven_Oct_PreviewEmail_01

It’s October Maven Selection time!  Every 20th, Julep releases the details of their upcoming polish collection — the window is open for a few days, and you can choose any box that interests you, as well as add-ons — or you can upgrade to the full wardrobe…or you can skip the month entirely.  A few days ago, I shared the October Sneak Peak — a dual-ended liner and sharpener set, which is the featured product of the month.

The product of the month isn’t that exciting to me, I prefer liquid/pen liners to pencil liners (I’m a cat-eye flick girl, so it makes sense), so a lot of this month hinged on the polish colours. AND OH MY GOD IT IS STEAMPUNK.

MY SELECTION:

This was truly a tough one for me. DARK, VAMPY NAILS. My weakness.  That said, I just did Dark, Vampy Nails with my September Full Wardrobe upgrade…but I wanted most of the colours this month.  Last month, the beauty items set me over the edge, along with the promise of some gorgeous polish shades. I wasn’t overly impressed with the beauty offerings (mask and pencil) this month, so I chose the It Girl profile and threw on some of the add-ons…

select

As you can see, I’ll be getting Kendra, Ciara, Missy, Beatrix, Casper, and Valerie.  It’s cheaper in points for me to get this than the upgrade…simply because two of the seven polishes I want are add-ons, not part of a profile box — and the upgrades no longer include the featured add-ons, apparently.  I also want Cleopatra, but I can only choose three add-ons, so I’ll make do with what I’ve got. Shimmery, dark, interesting polish! I can’t wait to receive this month’s box. There’s always hope that Cleopatra will show up in the Secret Store.

Mavens, what did you select?

If you aren’t currently a Julep Maven and you want all the nail polish all the time, then head on over to Julep’s website and use promo code SCENICROUTE to get your first month introductory box foooo’ freeeeee!
