Julep Night Lights Mystery Box Review – October 2015
Even though I am not in any need of new nail polish, sometimes I can’t resist buying a Julep Mystery box. I usually go for it when there will be one or two polish shades made exclusively for the box. That way, at least I won’t get all repeats in the box!
This Night Lights Mystery Box went on sale on the 7th and has since sold out, but they release a new one every month.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Box: Julep Night Lights Mystery Box
The Cost: $24.99
The Products: $100 retail value worth of beauty and nail polish, including:
• New Brenna (Boho Glam): Blue glow-in-the-dark iridescent microglitter top coat
• New Brandy (It Girl): Steel grey with blue microglitter liquid holographic
Julep Nail Color in Jess – Retail Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Margot – Retail Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Corinne – Retail Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Brandy – Retail Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Brenna – Retail Value $14
(The two shades are on the far right are the exclusive shades made just for this box that all customers received).
The Jess shade is a dark brown creme, Margot is a gold shimmer, and Corinne is the Stardust finish. (The formula does not get the best reviews on Julep). Here are the shades on (photos from Julep):
The Brenna shade is a blue glow-in-the-dark iridescent microglitter top coat, and the Brandy shade is a steel grey with blue microglitter liquid holographic. I’m excited to try the glow-in-the-dark top coat – it seems perfect for Halloween!
Julep Fluid Eye Glider – Value $20
This eyeliner marker is easy to apply, and paraben free! It looks like it bleeds a little in the swatch below, but it stayed perfectly in place when I used it on my eyelid and not my wrist!
This lip gloss shade has more pigment than the other Luxe Up Your Lips glosses I’ve tried. (And I’ve tried a few thanks to Julep mystery boxes!) This formula isn’t sticky at all, and it adds a good amount of shine and color:
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $114! Even though I don’t pay retail prices for Julep Maven products, I still think it is a great deal for $25. (Just a little over $4 an item). I definitely recommend Julep Mystery boxes if you are new to the Julep Maven subscription and want to build out your collection quickly and cheaply. Or if you are thinking about signing up for a subscription, it is a great way to try out their formulas first.
What do you think of the latest Julep mystery box? Did you get one?
