Julep Night Fright Mystery Box Review
Crème-To-Powder Blush Stick in Moonlit Sand, Full-Size! Retail Value $24
The crème-to-powder blush sticks are always super creamy and easy to blend, and this one is no exception. Moonlit Sand is a gorgeous shade of rose gold shimmer, and I will actually be using this as a highlighter rather than a blush. This would also be really pretty dabbed onto your lids for a soft eyeshadow!
When Pencil Met Gel Eyeliner in Electric Teal Shimmer, Full-Size! Retail Value $16
This gel pencil eyeliner is so creamy, and the bright teal shimmer is a gorgeous shade I am happy to have. The pencil is very soft, so go in with a light hand when applying.
Here is the eyeliner swatched above the blush stick.
Silver Halloween Nail Stickers – Estimated Value $4
I love nail stickers because they are a great way for both quick and cute nail art. This sheet features things likes spiders, snakes, and bones, and they lifted from the sheet easily while sticking well to the nail.
Julep Nail Polish in Delia, Full-Size! Retail Value $14
Delia is a “Nocturnal purple iridescent shimmer,” and while that is a mouthful I would say that description is pretty accurate. I was happy with the formula, but the brush felt a little off. I am not fully sure how to describe it, but it was almost rough in distributing the polish.
Julep Nail Polish in Sam, Full-Size! Retail Value $14
Sam is a limeade crème that really gives off Franken vibes- this is a color that’s perfect for Halloween, but Halloween is about the only time I’ll probably wear it. I found the formula to be pretty thick, which means it needed a long time to dry and I wasn’t happy with how difficult it was to work with.
Julep Nail Polish in Aradia, Full-Size! Estimated Value $14
Aradia is a brand new matte jagged glitter top coat that isn’t available online yet. This has both bar glitter chunks as well as jagged pieces, and while it is designed to be a matte top coat I really think it needs to be sealed with a top coat to smooth out all of the glitter.
Julep Nail Polish in Fleur, Full-Size! Retail Value $14 (currently out of stock)
Fleur is a black jelly polish filled with blue and green glitters, but unfortunately, the way the polish is formulated makes it hard to actually see the glitters. I liked this polish more in theory than I did in real life.
Here are the swatches! From top to bottom we have Aradia, Delia, Sam, and Fleur.
Here is some simple nail art I did trying to combine the items in the box. I topped Sam with one coat of Aradia and used some of the silver stickers on top of Delia.
The Verdict: When I first opened the box I thought I received three black nail polishes, and it wasn’t until I swatched them that I realized how different they were! It is a bit of a bummer that the formula and brushes on some of the polishes weren’t up to the standard that I hold Julep to, but overall it was still a good mix. I also really love the makeup products included, but I question if they belong in a Halloween themed box compared to a summer or spring box. Overall, Julep promised a value of $100, and without my guesstimate for the nail stickers the retail value adds up to $96. I think $4 is a fair value for the nail stickers, so I would say that Julep did meet their promised value.
