Julep Spring Mystery Box

Julep mystery box time!  Julep had a special for a Spring mystery box that I couldn't pass up since their mystery boxes are almost always a great value. The price of this mystery box was $24.99 ($5 more than usual) For your $24.99 they guaranteed you would receive $70-$200 worth of treats and a guaranteed mystery color in each box.  Also one lucky box included 3/4 carat diamond earrings.  Since the price had gone up $5 I only ordered one box this time.

Let's see what I got....

This is my Spring mystery box. The packing slips said it was mystery box #3


These are the four colors I received.  Surprisingly I don't have any of these colors!


Claire, It Girl, Bright Sky Blue Creme. Value = $14.00

Portia, Boho Glam, Sheer Tropical Blue with Opalescent glitter. Value = $14.00

Parker, Bombshell, Golden Tangerine Creme. Value = $14.00

Camille, Classic with a Twist, Value = $14.00

American Beauty Volumizing mascara. Value = $24.00

One-step polish removing pad. Value = $1.00

Julep nail file. Value = $1.00 - great file, I keep them all over the house

3 Spring colored hair ties. Value = $3.00 - love this things, I use them everyday!

3 chocolate eggs

The polish came wrapped in a reusable cloth gift bag with a to/from tag. 

The total value both my mystery boxes is $85.00.  I'm guessing the mystery color is Camille because they don't have any information on it online yet and everyone seemed to get this color in their box.  I had been wanting to try the mascara but didn't want to pay for it so this was great for me.  I absolutely love this little hair ties even though I find they stretch out quite easily.  I can't have enough of them. I've tried to Julep glass file and didn't like it but their basic one is awesome.    

Verdict: This was a great mystery box even though the price went up by $5.  I'm totally happy with it.

  2. Hah! I saw the promotion on your blog about this. I was already a maven but I didn't realize they were running the promotion until I saw it on your blog [which I love and hate.. mostly because I love reading about the boxes you get and then I get jelly and order one too!...my credit card cries at night] Anyways, I digress...I just thought it was funny we got the same exact box!

    1. Thanks for reading. I'm always happy to enable shopping addictions - ha ha. That is funny that we got the same box. I think I'm going to try Portia and Claire first they seem to be calling my name.

  3. :) It's no problem. I check your blog every couple of hours at work...I meant...during lunch :)

    Oh! I actually did experiment with those. I love the glittery nailpolish. I painted all my nails with Claire and on alternating nails used Portia.

    I hope you don't mind me asking. I saw you had the Blush box promotion. [I also ordered this *cover eyes*] I couldn't find a review to see if anyone else got the same thing I did. I was wondering if you ordered it and what did you get :)

    1. Funny you should ask, I got my blush box yesterday and was working on my posting today. I will have it up either tonight or tomorrow. I'm also wondering what other people got because I think they may all be different. I was really happy with my treasures but you will have to wait to see : )- I will tell you that everything I got was full sized and the value was over $150!

      But I am so excited to see what you got!

    1. It seems like they do them once every couple of months. I wouldn't be surprised if they have a mothers day (may) mystery box
