Now onto beauty boxes that don't rip you off (see this post - I'm still bitter). I subscribe to so many boxes that I often get asked if I had to pick one, which would I choose. It's hard to say but definitely one of my favorites is my Julep Maven box. I'm a nail polish addict so I enjoy receiving 2 nail polishes each month. They've expanded into beauty so now I enjoy a beauty product as well. I especially appreciate the effort they put into having a theme of each box then making the packaging fit into that theme. Take this month's box. They did a great job making everything orange and black, plus included candy corn!

Julep Nail Vernis in Eloise and Sabrina ($14 each) | Julep Quick Dry Polish Drops ($14) | Nail Art Glitter in Orange and Black | Extra: Halloween candy
There were some complaints that this month's box featured crackle nail polish with people saying that crackle is not a new or current trend. I agree but with Julep you can choose a different box or add another polish for a fraction of the price. I chose "American Beauty" because I felt I could use the orange crackle polish for Halloween-theme nails.
Loved the Halloween theme nail art glitter we received. How pretty are they?
These drops smell amazing because they include Vitamin E and Sweet Almond Oil to nourish and hydrate nails.The quick dry drops were a nice idea but I didn't find them that effective. Still nice to place on nails as conditioning drops.
Sabrina is a shimmery orange crackle polish launching this month. I put it on top of my Illamasqua nail polish in Taint (yep, will never get over that name) from my August Glossybox.
Eloise is a smokey indigo blue creme launching this month. Loved this blue color. I'm calling it Yankees blue. I'm very excited that they are the AL East champions!
