Julep Jewel Heist Mystery Box

Julep recently offered a new mystery boxed called Jewel Heist. Each box was promised to have a 100+ value. This one, like the other ones came with a prize for a few lucky winners. Fifty lucky people would win the birthstone collection, including the 3 colors not yet released. One lucky winner would win a pair of diamond and sapphire earrings. The price of the box was $24.99 and they also had add-ons you could purchase. Major mystery add-on was $14.99, the mystery add-on was $9.99 and the mystery polish was $4.99. I ended up buying all three but I had a coupon which saved me $8.99 so all of it came to $45.97.

Sadly I didn't win any of the prizes but I got some things I've been wanting.

This was the Jewel Heist Mystery Box.

This is the Major Mystery Box.

This is the mystery add-on.

This is the mystery polish.

Contents of the Jewel Heist Mystery Box: $24.99

Sweep Eye Shadow Palette in Neutral. Value $24.00/$19.20

Tatiana, shimmer, Boho Glam. Value = $14.00/$11.20

Surprise Rush Lip Gloss. Value = $20.00/$16.00

Blank Canvas Mattifying Eye Primer. Value = $22.00/$17.60

Eyeshadow Brush. Value = $18.00/$14.40

Set of 2 Hair Ties. Value $2.00??

The total value of this is $100 or $80.20 maven pricing. 

Contents of the Major Mystery Add-On: $14.99

Sweep Eye Shadow Palette in Neutral. Value $24.00/$19.20

Taryn, Holographic Glitter, It Girl. Value = $14.00 - this was only available in the "lucky" mystery boxes in March. 

Dawn, Créme, It Girl. Value = $14.00/$11.20

The total value of this is $52.00 or $44.40 maven pricing. 

Contents of the Mystery Add-On: $9.99

Annemarie, Créme, It Girl. Value = $14.00/$11.20

Shoshanna, Glitter, It Girl. Value = $14.00/$11.20

Catrina, Créme, It Girl. Value = $14.00/$11.20

The total value of this is $42.00/$33.60 maven pricing. 

Mystery Polish: $4.99

Kendra, Sheer/Frost/Pearl, It Girl. Value = $14.00/$11.20

In the end I got $208 or $169.40 maven pricing and I paid $46.00. I was bummed to see that I got two eye palettes. There aren't suppose to be duplicate items in the different boxes. I emailed Julep and they gave me enough points for a free polish for my trouble. I guess that's ok because I'm actually going to save one of the palettes for a Christmas gift along with the eye primer. I'm happy about the hair ties because I love those things. I was also happy about the lip gloss because I've been wanting to try it but didn't want to buy it. The Taryn color was exciting to see because although I have it already it was only available in the previous "lucky" mystery box. I totally don't mind having a dupe of it.

Verdict: All in all not a bad deal but I got a lot of dupes in the polish.
