In a New (Year’s) Light

In a New (Year’s) Light

Our first collection of 2015 (launching tomorrow!) features beauty faves reimagined to new heights—our ideas propelled by your input. The original, omega-rich Luxe Lip Conditioning Treatment has flown off the shelves (as they say) since its release last winter, so January’s collection expands on the original “invisible” formula with four perfectly not-too-sheer colors. Luxe Lip heals winter dryness and fights collagen loss with rich oils and vitamins, but what’s on this lip treatment... Read More

The Ultimate Upgrade

The Ultimate Upgrade

It's the season of giving, so when the time came to ship out our December Maven boxes, our CEO Jane Park had a brilliant idea: surprise 100 lucky ladies with the Ultimate Upgrade, as a special thank you for being a Maven.

This is it: the final Color Report of 2014! Over the course of the year, we've been sharing which nail polish shades are the most popular across the country.

Overheard at Last Night’s Maven Meetup…

Overheard at Last Night’s Maven Meetup…

"How would you get any work done here? I would just paint my nails all day." Maven 1: (looking in the mirror in the bathroom) "I really need some lipstick." Maven 2: "I’ve got some lipstick in my bag." Maven 1: "Oooh, thanks, but lipstick is not really a ‘sharing item.'" Maven 2: "Yeah, I guess you’re right. There are some beauty products that aren’t meant to be shared." “I’m so impressed with the quality of your makeup and skincare for a company that is known for its nail polish.”... Read More

Julep Staff Picks: Our Favorite Thanksgiving Stories & Traditions

What does Thanksgiving mean to you? For this month's staff picks, we asked folks here at Julep HQ to share their Thanksgiving favorites, from annual traditions to must-have recipes. Here's what they told us: "One of my Thanksgiving traditions include traveling to Olympia (I currently live in Tacoma) with my boyfriend to play a rousing game of football in the rain or snow.
