FREE Welcome Box from Julep

Julep Maven is a Birchbox-esque beauty box, but what’s different about it is that it delivers exactly what you want. Every month you choose what you love from a new collection. You can customize your monthly boxes with what they have in inventory each month. You can pick a pre-selected box if you still love the element of surprise, or you can pick and choose products or even specific colors.

From makeup to nail polish to skincare, Julep Maven offers all sorts of products that are sure to interest you. That being said, Julep Maven is offering a FREE welcome box for new subscribers so you can see what they’re all about.

These beauty boxes tend to be hit or miss for me, but I feel pretty confident about a box where I can choose my own – so I’m totally down to give this one a shot, especially since I can get a feel for what they’re about for FREE! Check it out, let us know what you think!

Free Ocean Mist Cosmetics ‘Try Me Kit’

Happy Monday! And a happy Monday it is with this free sampler kit!

Ocean Mist Cosmetics is giving out one sample kit per customer so that you can see how wonderful mineral makeup is without breaking the bank. Pay only shipping and handling!

The kit includes the following:

  • 3 mineral foundation colors
  • 1 concealer
  • 1 blush
  • 1 finishing powder

There are TONS of color options for each unit in the kit, so you can try the product in the shades that best match your skintone.

Ocean Mist Cosmetics lets you know that these are in tiny jars that aren’t best for application, but that the best play here is to use a makeup pallet or a piece of wax paper for application – and don’t forget to moisturize, or even use a nice Primer beforehand for best results!

I checked out customer reviews and they are all 4-5 of 5 stars with rave reviews! Some people wish the quantity was a bit more generous, but how can you complain when it’s free?!

Try these out – I always love testing products before I pay full price! Let us know what you think!
