New Year's Julep mystery boxes.

Julep mystery box time!  Julep mystery boxes are always a great value so I always get at least two boxes when they offer them.

Julep itself is a monthly subscription service for nail polish.  The price is $19.99 a month but you have the option to skip.  Since joining I've only purchased four of the monthly boxes besides the first box which I got for a penny.  Every couple of months or so Julep sends out an email or facebook/twitter post for mystery boxes.  The cost is $19.99 and you are guaranteed to get $60-$200 worth of items in each box.  I always order two for some reason.



Here are all the goodies in my first mystery box.  I got 6 nail polishes!  On the invoice it says this is box #5.

This is the close up of the nail polishes.  Chelsea, Lucy, Catherine, Emmanuelle, Erica and Renee. 

Contents of mystery box #5

3 oz. Daylight Defense. Value = $28.00

(2) .07 oz packets Age Defying Hand Brightener. Value = $1.52

(3) nail polish remover pads. Value = $3.00

Glitter pot in white. Value = $2.00

Chelsea nail polish. Value = $14.00

Lucy nail polish. Value = $14.00

Catherine nail polish. Value = $14.00

Emmanuelle nail polish. Value = $14.00

Erica nail polish. Value = $14.00

Renee nail polish. Value = $14.00

The total value of mystery box #5 is $118.52.  I really like the nail polish remover pads and much to my delight I don't have any of the colors I received. 


Here are all the goodies from my second mystery box.  Again six polishes.  The invoice says this is box #3.  


Here is a close up of the polishes.  Sandra, Erica, Melissa, Brandt by Trina Turk, Matte Top Coat and Gwyneth.  

Contents of mystery box #3

2 oz. The Best Pedi Creme Ever! Value = $22.00

(2) .07 oz packets Age Defying Hand Brightener. Value = $1.52

(2) nail polish remover pads. Value = $2.00

Glitter pot in Blue. Value = $2.00

Sandra nail polish. Value = $14.00

Erica nail polish. Value = $14.00

Melissa nail polish. Value = $14.00

Trina Turk Brandt nail polish. Value = $14.00

Matte Top Coat. Value = $14.00

Gwyneth nail polish. Value = $14.00

The total value of mystery box #5 is $111.52.  I'm really happy I received a Trina Turk color.  I didn't buy any when they had them for sale.  This is a really dark blue, almost black color so for New Year's Eve I painted my nails in this color and put silver glitter polish on top.  It was perfect.   

I received $230.04 worth of products for $40.00.  I only received one duplicate polish between the 2 boxes and only 3 colors I already had.  If you deduct those items I'm still at $188.04 in value.

Verdict: I think the mystery boxes are great!

***I am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Julep.  I purchase these boxes myself.
