Julep May 2015: The Set Sail Collection review

laelene Post in reviews, subscriptions,Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

It’s been a long time since I’ve gotten a box from them and I seem to alternate between mystery boxes and one of their monthly themed ones. This time around, I didn’t want an eyeshadow so I thought I might skip the month again, but I found myself drawn to the High Seas Box. There’s something about the patriotic, summery colors and the nail decals that I couldn’t resist. It was also the perfect opportunity to snag the brow gel that I had my eye on, using some points!

Julep ranges from just under $25 to $40 per box based on tier (or as discounted as just under $20 to $35 per box when prepaid three at a time) and comes with combinations of nail polish colors, skincare products, and beauty products (depending on your style profile choice). They offer plenty of upgrade and add-on options too. Boxes are sent monthly unless you choose to skip. You also have the option of gifting your box to a friend. They offer a referral program that earns you $15 store credit per referral.

Polish colors in Ilsa, Brigitte, and January. While I might have a pretty similar shade of red, I’m quite sure I do not have a blue or white that is just the right shade for this American combo. I look forward to some awesome nail art or French manicures with Brigitte!

I’m a sucker for these and they were a pretty big reason I went with this box. I can totally see myself doing fun designs with them for Memorial Day, Independence Day, etc.  Stripes, polka dots, and anchors all the way!

I was surprised at the small size of the brush, but it’s perfect for brows. Other brow gels I’ve used have larger brushes more similar to mascara and they end up putting too much gel on my brows. At first I couldn’t tell if there was even enough gel on the brush, but it works wonderfully to tame any stray brows without looking like there’s anything there.

I’m very pleased with the brow gel I got with points – totally worth it! The combination of colors and the decals was really well-themed and right up my alley. I had considered trying their new “Surprise Me!” box, but I couldn’t quite take the risk blindly like that. Hopefully I can track down someone’s review and see if it might be worth a try another month…
