The wait!


I think I have fallen for all this beauty box craziness! so many boxes I want! but sadly cant have them all! Oh well,but I've heard really good things about the 3 I did get...which are Julep Maven,Beauty Army and New Beauty Test Tube!

Julep Maven:

  It's a monthly subscription service that gives you(depending on your profile): 2 nail polishes with unique colors that haven't been released yet and another product(if you are: American Beauty, Classic with a Twist, Boho Glam, and Bombshell), or 3 nail polishes(if you are It Girl), all valued at $40. Also with your subscription you get 20% off of every purchase in Julep Maven Boutique.

  All of that for $19.99 a month(always free shipping). Another really great thing, if you don't want your box for that month, you can either skip a month, send your subscription to someone else or just try a new style for that month. From time to time they have mystery boxes out for the same price as the regular monthly subscription($19.99), you can pick if you want a box with mostly nail polishes or a box of products, these boxes are valued at $60 and some lucky ones will get the $200 one).

 I've seen the variety of nail polishes they have on their website and watched tons of reviews on this service, their colors are really cute(I'm just so excited to try them), the quality of their nail polishes is good and not only that, but their other products are well reviewed . Another  great thing I've heard is that they have really good customer service(always useful).

   So all together this sounds like a service I will definitely enjoy and I really am looking forward to get all my boxes, I subscribed with a promo code(PENNY or color2012) that gets you the first box for a penny!

 Right now I'm waiting for my introductory box (Classic with a Twist profile) and a mystery box! I picked "Product Lover",  I love nail polish but I'm still dying to try some of the other products they may have. I'm so excited to get my hands on both!!

Beauty Army:

This is another monthly subscription service that lets you choose up to 6 luxury beauty samples for $12 and also some full size products, your samples will be based on your beauty profile and then you will be able to grab 6 samples out of 9 listed. Their products could be: make up, hair care, skin care, body, fragrance, nails and men's samples.

 I've seen several you tube videos and read reviews about this service, the products seem to be good quality products and its definitely worth the money. One awesome experience I personally had with their customer service made me really happy I picked them, I sent an e-mail about a billing error I was having and they replied right away letting me know it was just an error and everything went through fine. I was just blown away by their efficiency! 

Same as with Julep if you don't want your box for the month you can just skip the month and you can cancel anytime.

I should be getting my September(I think) box in the next week or so, I'm super excited to get my hands on it, I'm glad I picked this service, not only because of the reviews, but their customer service really made me happy. 

This are the samples I picked for my first box:

NewBeauty TestTube:

  Created by New Beauty magazine,this service will get you deluxe samples and full sized products every 3 months for $29.95 + $8.95 shipping, after reading a lot of reviews and watching a lot of videos, it was so hard to resist subscribing to this service, but I finally gave in and did it. 

The products they feature have amazing reviews and are totally worth the money you pay for it, products have a real value of $150(according to their website), with your "tube" you also get the New Beauty magazine.

 I ordered my TestTube some days ago and they said my first one will ship within the next 3 - 4 weeks. Can't wait! I'm really looking forward to get it, all the reviews about this service and the products are just amazing.

 There's another option for the TestTube, which is the QVC NewBeauty TestTube, it goes for $29.96 + $6.97 (+ tax) and includes products usually from brands featured sold on the site.

 As you could tell by now I'm really looking forward to get all my boxes, once i do I'll be posting pictures of what i get and product reviews.
