As promised, here is a little comparison of Catherine by Julep (left) and Zoya’s Sookie (right). They are really similar, but in good lighting you can tell that Catherine is just a little bit darker. They are both lovely, though.I’m still unsure about whether I will continue to receive the Julep Maven boxes. While the 1 cent box was obviously an incredible value, and bought them some loyalty in my book, $20 is still alot to pay for a monthly box. I am also taking into account the fact that the polish chipped very quickly for me, but I have only tried one of the colors so far. Catherine was really pretty while it lasted. One more thing I wanted to point out that my friend discovered, and let me know – that once joining the Maven program, the only way to cancel it is by phone. I’m definitely not thrilled about that, but I’m sure they didn’t want to make it *too* easy to get a 1 cent box and then quit. I think I signed up too late to get the January box, so I guess I’ll make up my mind once they send out the February previews in a couple of weeks. The one cent code apparently does not work anymore, but you can get an intro box for $5 with the code JANUARY. Here is my referral link if you’d like to use it, thanks! http://www.julep.com/?r=18201691
Also keep in mind that the code for any 2 free bottles of Zoya works until the 9th! Just pay for shipping, so around $6.95 I believe. (The code is for full size bottles which are normally $8 each, plus shipping. Only the new spring collection colors/fleck are excluded from the code).
