Time to Shine
The beauty box that really nails it
You’ve got better things to do than trawl the aisles of a beauty superstore, but you still want to look polished and stylish. So why not allow a posse of beauty experts to do the searching for you?
Julep is an online beauty company that lets you discover new nail colors and beauty products with a few keystrokes--and it makes sure the selections are customized to suit your style.
It works like this: You take a short, fun style quiz, then check out your recommended goodies, grouped in themed boxes. (For example, the Boho Glam assortment has gorgeous key-lime green and shimmery blue nail colors plus a rich, cucumber-mint pedicure cream.) On the 20th of each month, an email previews the latest boxes ($20). If you do nothing, you'll be sent your loot a week later. You also always have the choice to opt out of that particular month or send it to a friend at no extra charge.
It gets better: PureWow readers can sign up as a Julep Maven, choosing any of the five boxes and receiving your first one FREE. Mavens also get 20 percent off regular-priced items on Julep.com, free shipping and special access to past months’ boxes, so you don’t ever have to run out of your favorite nail polish.
Don’t miss the chance to get your first Maven box free using the promo code “PUREWOW” until October 31, 2013.
