Julep Diamond Mystery Box

The Julep Diamond Mystery Box is available now. (And finally they are introducing two new polishes in the box!) I’m guessing the rest of the $150 value in the box will be nail polish and beauty items from past seasons, but I’m really happy to see they are back to making new polishes for their mystery boxes! Are you grabbing one?

  1. I just received mine in the mail today! I only ordered the box this time, no add-ons. I got sky and chantel, as advertised, as well as Millie, a darker indigo blue color, Alex, a sparkly purple, gayle, a fuchsia purple color, and Michelle a navy blue color. My box also included both the angled and the shader brushes for eye makeup, which I really wanted, a black gel eye glider, blank canvas eye primer and lip gloss in splendid, more of a berry color which I have not used yet. Over all, pretty decent box.

    • I got the same box – I’m very pleasantly surprised at what it contained. I love all of the colors, and nothing was a dupe. It reminds me of the first mystery box that I got at this time last year. I was almost hoping I’d hate it so I could finally convince myself never to order one again – darn you Julep! You’re making it hard to break up with you.

  2. I posted pics of my Halloween Mystery box and I really thought I got a lot for my money! A neutrals palette akin to the Naked Basics, three polishes with decent colors (two I already had), a foot cream, an eye shadow primer, an eye shadow brush, even a cute little pack of candy corn. It’s possible that past mystery boxes under-delivered but it sounds like they may have stepped things up for this last one. And I know that I like/don’t have the two polishes they did the spoiler on so that makes me feel good about this next mystery box.

  3. I ordered my first mystery box! I’m not too worried about duplicate polishes because I don’t have that many and they make great gifts. I got a great deal because I spent under $40 and got the sequin tote with makeup items using the SHINETIME code. I’m excited to see my goodies!!!

  4. I got one because my Halloween mystery box really was pretty good. I also bought all of the add-ons for this one, so it ended up being a little pricey but I’m also not a regular Julep subscriber so I don’t end up getting duplicate polishes. Last month I think I ended up with 10+ polishes plus one that I choose myself for free after using a code (I chose Casper by the way and it’s a really fabulous color and my daughters got a kick out of my nails being glow in the dark.) This will likely be my last Julep anything for a while because I am well stocked up on polishes at this point but holiday colors would be nice! 🙂

  5. I got one this time with one of the major add-ons. I’m hoping to use to most of it for Xmas gifts. I used code SHINETIME and got a 6 piece gift to go with it. So for less than $40 plus free shipping I got treats for me and at least 2 Xmas presents out of the way 🙂

    • Do you have to be a maven to use the shinetime code? I tried to use it, but it says it’s invalid.

  6. I’m torn. I know those two polishes alone would be worth the cost of the box to a non-Mave and I love them both. Julep has some great colors, but I was really disappointed in what I got for my summer mystery box nail polish wise (although I for the most part enjoy the lip gloss and eye primer). There could be some potential Christmas gifts in here as I’m putting together some mani/pedi sets for friends for gifts….

    It’s tempting for sure. I agree that they never come close to the value though. My summer box was toted to be over $100 in value and I think with Maven prices it came out to be about $85.

    • Here’s the deciding question, are there any good coupons out there right now???

      • 15plus works for a free polish of choice. I used it this morning when I bought this mystery

      • Works with BG74L8U for $5 off.

      • Awesome thanks guys! 🙂

  7. I’m not a maven subscriber, so nothing I get in here would be a duplicate of something I have. For those who are not a fan of Julep mystery boxes, what’s the reason why? Does it just duplicate things you already have, or is there not enough value there?

    • They’re never worth the claimed value, they invariably include duplicate polishes that are clearance items in their online store (that anyone can buy for next to nothing) and have sent expired products in some boxes (like mascara). Typically the only mystery involved is how much you will have overpaid.

    • Agree with the statement about value. The claimed value is original, non-Maven, marked-up prices. Plus, I have never gotten polishes I liked from a mystery box (except Padma, a really dark purple). They kept giving me weird colors like tan and mustard yellow, like they were trying to get rid of them because no one had bought them.

  8. No I’ve been disappointed with the mystery boxes . I’m not ready to take the risk again.

  9. I got one! I was really pleasantly surprised with my Halloween mystery box, I think they go the hint that they can’t keep being, um, shady.

    • *got – what is with auto-correct? Got is a word!

  10. Never doing another Julep mystery box again…

    • Agreed! Just not worth the risk.

      • Also agree. Love Julep. Love the Maven sub. Hate the mystery boxes.

    • Me neither – been burned too many times.
