Julep Jewel Heist Mystery Box Review
I’ve been cutting back on Julep Mystery Box purchases lately because they typically include colors from past collections/seasons, so as a subscriber for over 2 years now that means lots of duplicates for me.
This time though there was a $10 off coupon code making this box only $14.99 shipped, so I couldn’t resist.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Box: Julep Jewel Heist Mystery Box (no longer available)
The Cost: $24.99 (Free shipping if you’re a Julep Maven subscriber)
COUPON: Use coupon code 10foryou to save $10! (FYI – the fine print on the Mystery Box email states that discounts aren’t valid on mystery boxes. This code is currently working though, so keep that in mind when using the coupon).
Packed with $100+ worth of mystery nail polishes and beauty must-haves, this tempting box is quite a steal. And if you’re lucky, you might end up with even more loot…
50 winners get all 12 birthstone polishes (including the three colors nobody’s seen) in a white lacquer jewelry box—a $216 value!
1 grand prize winner gets all that and a pair of gorgeous sapphire and diamond earrings. (1 ct tw)
Julep Nail Color in Nadia – Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Francis – Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Padma – Value $14
Well, I wasn’t thrilled to find two Spring-looking colors in this box, but I do like this deep purple microshimmer Padma polish – it was a Halloween-witch vibe!
Julep Lip Gloss in Peony – Value $18 (on sale for $5.99)
Julep Nail Color in Faye – Value $14
I tried this lip gloss in a Julep Maven box from a while ago and wasn’t crazy about the formula – it was a little too sticky for me. I’m also trying to decide if this Faye nail polish is a good fall color. At first glance I love the cocoa base, but it also has a green microshimmer undertone that might not look right. If you’ve tried it out let me know!
Julep Overnight Repair for Hands – Value $48 (On sale for $19.99)
These are Julep items I actually haven’t tried yet! I like that they are paraben and sulfate free, so I’ll add them to my nighttime beauty routine!
Verdict: I went into this box with pretty low expectations, and a low cost, so I’m pleased with what I received. For $15 I got a $122 retail value, or $82 if you count sale prices. Either way the value is there, and I’ll use the two fall nail polish shades, the hand treatment set, and swap or gift the rest. (I wish they would just use only old nail polish stock from the appropriate seasons though! I’d much rather get a Fall 2013 color than a Spring 2014 one!)
