Julep Lucky Mystery Box (Taryn)

My Julep Lucky Mystery Box arrived today and while I already knew what was in it I was still excited to open it up!

The Box

Julep ships monthly Maven boxes via USPS First Class or Priority Mail (full collections are shipped via Priority Mail), however, all other orders (mystery boxes, shop orders, etc.) are shipped via DHL. I believe that, once shipped, my box took nine days to arrive! While I wish they’d use USPS for all their shipping, it didn’t stop me from ordering!

First Look

Julep used to (and still might for other mystery boxes) send out a variety of mystery boxes.  Boxes were worth between $70 and $200 and it was always fun to see what you’d get in them.  The Lucky Mystery box was a bit different in that everyone who ordered the “Taryn” (which I did) got the same items.  Everyone who ordered the “Shannon” one got the same items, etc.  All of the box options were $24.99 and contained a $100 in (retail) value.  Here is what I received in my Taryn Julep Lucky Mystery Box:

~Neon Nail Dips ($12): I had no idea that Julep ever offered such a product. You brush on the top coat, dip your nails into the neon powder, brush off the excess and boom you are done!  I am all over trying this and hope to make it happen sooner rather than later!

Neon Nail Dips

~Mint Condition Pedi Cream ($16): I am using this pedi cream right now since it came in my last mystery box and quite like it, so I don’t mind the extra at all!  Hopefully flip-flop season is just around the corner and who wants dry icky feet for that?

~Boho Glam Lengthening Mascara ($12.99): I can’t recall if I have ever used Julep’s mascara?  If I have I don’t remember if I liked it or not.  This will be put in the mascara “to try” pile.  I’d love to open it now, but I probably get a new mascara at least once a week so I have a bit of a stockpile going!

~Brielle – Bombshell ($11.20):  Brielle is a deep autumn orange crème.  While this color is gorgeous, it’s a duplicate for me so I will be trading it.

~Tatiana – Boho Glam ($11.20):  Tatiana is a golden burnt orange microglitter.  I didn’t think I had this color when I opened the box and was excited because it’s gorgeous, but yeah, I have this one too.  So many polishes!  This will be traded as well!

~Dahlia – Boho Glam ($11.20): Dahlia is a goldenrod microglitter and, you guessed it, I already have this one too.  You’d think this would stop me from ordering more mystery boxes or more full collections, but it won’t ;).

Dahlia – Boho Glam

~Taryn – It Girl ($11.20):  Taryn is a deep sea teal holographic glitter and is pretty much the reason I picked this box over the other ones.  It’s gorgeous and is even prettier in person than I thought it would be.  This will be my next toenail color for sure.

Taryn – It Girl

All totaled I came up with a value of $85.79 for the Julep Lucky Mystery Box (they are no longer available).  Since I used Maven / Sale pricing (not retail pricing) it was less than the $100 promised value. I am happy with this box, but not over the top thrilled.  Had I gotten a three polishes I didn’t already have (is that even possible) I would have been thrilled!  Did you get a Julep Lucky Mystery Box?  Which one?  What’d it have it in?

As always, if you are interested in subscribing to Julep, click here and use the coupon code “FREEBOX” to get your first box for $4.99 (you pay only the shipping).  And if you are already a Maven, don’t forget that the selection window is open now through the 24th!

    I haven’t tallyed up Shannon yet, but it’s not going to be even close to $100, without Maven. 4 polishes and a cream. I also got the $15 mystery bag. That was supposed to be~ $65. 3 full size polishes, 1 mini, and bag of seeds~$55? I don’t know why I tried this box again *sigh* No more mystery boxes for me from Julep. Although I really, really, realllly like Shannon. :3

    Ugh. I am glad I didn’t get Shannon then! I thought about the mystery bag, but decided against it.

    Do you do trades?? I wanted that dahlia so badly but not for full price. I have several unopened juleps, maybe a color you don’t have??

    I just got my Lucky Mystery box today and I like it, but I was a bit disappointed because I only got nail polish. I got twelve polishes (no duplicates to boot so yay) but I was hoping for something else, like one of their other items I wouldn’t normally buy. Also it all adds up to $100 , but that is including the $14.99 mystery bag supposed to be a $65 value. In my add on bag I only got 2 polishes, do you think maybe they sent me the lesser valued add on by accident? not sure if I should say anything because it was a great deal but it also feels a little false.

    Never mind lol. Was looking at other reviews and saw the spoiler on http://www.evolutionofafoodie.com/2014/03/julep-lucky-mystery-box-spoilers.html. I got just what I paid for so yay. Can chalk it up to a win since I didn’t get any doubles.

    Wow, that’s a lot of polishes! I wonder why the mystery bag only had two polishes though? That seems odd? No way are those adding up to $65?

    I bought the nails dips right after I read all the bad reviews from Sephora. :(

    The nails kept snagging onto my clothes and scratching me, I had to take them off (which wasn’t very pleasant).

    Do you think you can put any sort of coating on the top??
