The time of the year to give and receive is almost here!
I know it’s 4 weeks away, but I’m already racking my brain over what to give my sister, mom, cousins, and girlfriends. Obviously, I want to give them something they’ll be able to use that’s pretty too. As I was mulling over the best gifts, it suddenly came to me — a Julep Beauty Box! Duh!
The Julep Beauty Box Is The Gift That Keeps On Giving
If you haven’t signed up for a Julep Beauty Box, you’re missing out! I gave it a try two months ago out of curiosity… and a love for all things mini and pretty. The Julep Beauty Box promises to deliver beauty treats and goodies every month and boy, does it deliver. For only $24.99 I receive a box every month that is chock-full of goodies well worth $40+. The best part about this box? I get to CHOOSE everything that comes in it.
In addition to personalizing your own box, subscribers get first dibs on new products and 20% savings too. It’s like having an annual pass to Disneyland… if Disneyland were Sephora. With all the offers, I couldn’t pass up on subscribing and now that I have, I’m so glad I did!
I’ve received everything from lipsticks to nail polish, and so far, my favorite products are the lipsticks. I like the pigmentation and love the creaminess Julep’s lipsticks offer. It’s the perfect amount! I have dry lips so I avoid matte lippies like the plague. The Julep ones I received were the perfect combination of gloss and color. To be honest, I can buy the lipsticks separately, but seriously, where is the fun in that? With the monthly beauty boxes, it’s always a treat to consistently receive something new in the mail.
So far, my most fave lippie is the Light On Your Lips in Vixen. This is a full-coverage creme lipstick in plum-red, which is absolutely fabulous for my planned Christmas outfits. I actually put together two looks to share some outfit ideas I have with my Vixen lipstick this holiday.
1. Red Lips Christmas Party Look
The first is this beautiful Preen Dress that Jessica Alba wore. This dress really suits my style and I’m going to wear this to one of the parties I’ll be going to.
To recreate the look for less, I did some hunting online and here’s the look I put together:

2. Red Lips Christmas Day Look
Now this other look is a more laid back look, which I think I’ll be doing come Christmas day itself.
Here’s how to put this look together:

These looks are really getting me pumped for the holidays, which is why I’m also excited to present my loved ones with Julep Gift Boxes! So I did some digging and found out that I can actually save money ($5 per box to be exact) by getting these beauty boxes as gifts too.
- If you buy 2 Beauty Boxes, the price is $40 ($80+ value of Julep products)
- If you buy 4 Beauty Boxes, the price is $80 ($160+ value)
- If you buy 6 Beauty Boxes, the price is $120 ($240+ value)
All you/we need to do is:
- Choose the package you want and give Julep the contact details of the recipient.
- Choose the date when the giftee will receive the welcome email and the gift.
- The giftee will then receive the email, along with a link where they’ll actually get to customize their box.
- Get ready to hear your loved ones fawn over their first beauty box!
The best part about the Julep Beauty Box is that the recipient gets to customize their own box and choose all the goodies they actually WANT to receive. So, not only is this the gift that keeps on giving, it’s a gift they’ll love time and time again!
Anyhoo, I’m decided and soooper excited!
