Julep offers a Mystery Box of some sort every month. This month the box theme was Confetti Delights. Please tell me I am not the only one who was hungry for ice cream after seeing this box announced. Every box was to include two new confetti nail colors and additional mystery beauty and nail products with a promised $100+ value for $24.99. Also, the mystery box would include a Le Tote Necklace FREE while supplies lasted. (If you haven’t heard of it, Le Tote is a monthly styling and clothing rental subscription box that My Subscription Addiction regularly reviews.)
For some reason, this month Julep included welcome information about the Julep Maven subscription box and a unique coupon code for 50% off my next purchase. I have been a Julep subscriber for quite a while now, but I will definitely take it!
Here is everything that came in the Confetti Delights box. Yay, I was lucky enough to get the Le Tote necklace – Retail Value $34!
Here is a close up view of the necklace. It is easily wearable and goes with pretty much anything.
In case you want to see how long it is. The 2 layers are both hooked together onto the same necklace clasp in the back.
I should also mention that using coupon code APR15 allowed me to save up to $15 off any additional item added to this order. I opted for this new polish from Julep’s Zodiac Collection.
Julep Nail Color in Aries – Retail Value $14 (risk-taker red iridescent flash)
This is the first time I have tried a polish from the Zodiac Collection and I am impressed! Very pretty and goes on smoothly. Also, the box itself is really nice and perfect for gifting.
OK, back to the regular mystery box contents.
First, the eye shadow.
I tried this exact color combination before and was a fan the first time. I usually keep my eye makeup fairly subdued and this is an easily wearable daytime look.
Feels Like Velvet Full Coverage Eye Shadow Duo in Moonlight & Starlight – Retail Value $20 (matte lilac grey & white sand shimmer)
Luxe Up Your Lips in Poppy – Retail Value $24
I tried this conditioning lip treatment when Julep first introduced it. I was not a fan of the product at that time although I usually like most of Julep’s beauty line. I do like the cooling zamac tip on the tube though. This time I decided I would at least give it a shot again because it had been a little while.
Unfortunately, this time the shea butter, or something, had clumped up inside the tube and it was completely unusable because the treatment came out with small shea butter-looking chunks in it. After several unsuccessful attempts at saving it, I called Julep’s customer service who first told me the product was still usable, but after I described what was going on with it further, they offered to send me a replacement lip product of my choice. I called last Tuesday and by Saturday, I received the following replacement:
It’s Balm in Vintage Mauve – Retails $20.
This is a full-coverage lip crayon with a moisturizing treatment core in the middle.
This one is a keeper. And I appreciate Julep’s offer to let me pick a replacement item. They shipped it to me pretty quickly, too, so I was happy with this outcome.
Ok, and last, but not least, here are the polish colors that were in the Confetti Delights box:
Julep Nail Color in Randi – Retail value $14 (pink plumeria crème)
Julep Nail Color in Ali – Retail value $14 (hint of mint soft focus)
I don’t have either of these yet so this is definitely a win for me.
Julep Nail Color in Annabelle – Retail value $14 (floral bouquet matte glitter top coat)
Julep Nail Color in Marley – Retail value $14 (aquatic blues matte glitter top coat)
Annabelle and Marley were the spoiled colors for this mystery box. These are my favorite in the box and would work great as a topcoat as well.
Here are all 4 colors swatched.
Value: This mystery box cost $24.99 and includes $100 worth of beauty items and polish + the $34 necklace + an extra $14 polish from the code I used. I think Julep’s mystery boxes are a fun way to try out items from their line of products and offer a really nice value.
Verdict: I’m happy with the Confetti Delights mystery box especially the two specialty polishes. What do you think of this box and/or the regular Julep Maven subscription box?
