Julep Maven New Year's Eve Mystery Box - December 2012 Review

This month’s Julep Mystery Box had the highest guaranteed value ever ($100 minimum value for $19.99) so it was impossible for me to resist!

Julep Nail Color in Cindy – Value $14

Julep Nail Color in Dendrie – Value $14

Julep Nail Color in ? – Value $14

The glitter polish didn’t have a name and wasn’t individually wrapped like all the other polishes. I’m guessing it’s the exclusive mystery polish they promised for the box?

Julep Nail Color in Lauren -Value $14

Julep Nail Color in Annie – Value $14

I was so happy I didn’t get any nail polishes I already had through Julep. I’m ready for spring/summer colors, so these last two are my favorites in the box.

Julep The Best Pedi Creme Ever! – Value $22 Nail File

Julep Boho Glam Lengthening Mascara – Value $24

I’ll use the pedi creme, but not the mascara – it’s nice but not my favorite.

Verdict: Not even counting the little extras, this box is worth $114 – awesome! What did you think of your mystery box? Were you happy with the nail polish colors and overall value?

  1. I didn’t get mine yet! 🙁

  2. I haven’t got mine yet, can’t wait!

  3. Funny enough I got the EXACT same contents as Kate.

  4. I have been reading your blog trying to decide which boxes to try, and I just could not pass up this mystery box. I am so glad I ordered it… box had some similarities to yours.

    I received the same boho mascara, the nail file, and the set of remover pads and hand cream samples. Instead of the pedi cream, I was sent a sicilian orange foot scrub. The polishes I was sent are the mystery glitter, Cindy, Georgia, Sienna, and Stella. All of which I am happy to say I will use except maybe the Stella…I don’t think it will work with my skin tone, but it WILL make an excellent last minute stocking stuffer.

    I am now more than convinced this is a box for me so I just placed my first maven order for a penny.

  5. My box was almost completely different! Apart from the mystery unnamed glitter polish and polish remover pads you mentioned, I also received:
    – 3 polishes (Isla, Portia, Hoch)
    – 1 matte top coat
    – 2 glycolic hand scrub sample packets
    – 1 full-size tube of Julep Glow On hand brightner
    – 1 reusable Julep shopping bag
