My Julep Box of Mystery

Julep recently ran a holiday promotion called 5 Days of Gifting, where each day featured a new Julep deal.  By far, the most popular deal that week was the Box of Mystery.  A surprise box of mystery Julep products valued at $60 and up to $200, all for $19.99 and with free shipping.  I'm already a loyal Julep Maven, I signed on from the very beginning in August, but that didn't stop me from taking advantage of the incredible deal being offered on this day.  Plus the fact I like having a surprise box of beauty goodies delivered to my doorstep, this was a win win.

My mystery box arrived yesterday and I was giddy with excitement to open my surprise.  I had no idea what I was going to get, but what I received made my jaw drop...

Look at all the products!  I think I really hit the jackpot on this one.  I did a quick calculation and my box retails over $200.  I think it's safe to say I got my money's worth on this one.  Never in the world did I expect to get the grand daddy box. I would have been more than happy with a $60 box, so this definitely exceeds my expectation.

So what's in the box?  Here's the list of items:
Amy - smokey turquoise
Gloria - modern, coral rose
Holly - opaque, super pale pink
Jodie - shimmery, burnt copper
Lucy - modern, dark burgundy
Mandy - fresh, bright, deep coral-pink
Salma - bold, fire-engine red
Susan - cheery, rosy pink
Stella - mustard yellow
Vera - luxurioussable brown
Pout Plumping Lip Gloss in Intimacy - nude with 24 karat gold shimmer
Essential Cuticle Oil
Fast Dry Top Coat
Glitter Pot in Silver
Nail Applique in Peacock
Nail Applique in Rivet

Amazing enough, I don't own any of the 10 colors here.  I have to say that there are a few colors I would normally not buy for myself, but now I have the opportunity to step out of my comfort zone and give the color a try.  Indeed Christmas came a couple days early for me.  These are quality products.  I am very fond of their nail polish, especially their crème formula.  They apply beautifully on the nails and dries to a glossy shine.  I have to say Julep is incredibly generous to be offering such a wonderful deal to their customers.  I'm definitely a fan!

So what is a Julep Maven?  I'm sure most of you already heard about the program, but in case you didn't, here's it is:  For $19.99 a month (shipping is included), Julep will send out a Sneak Peek Box tailored to your style profile taken from a quick fun style quiz.  The box will include the latest nail color, and/or mani and pedi care products.  For more details on the program, check out the Julep Maven section on the website and the Maven FAQs page.  If you're not a Maven and want to join, I would appreciate if you go through my referral link to sign-up.  (Disclosure:  For each new member that signs up for Julep Maven program through the referral link, I will receive $15 in Julep credit)

Edited 12/27/11 to add:  I didn't post this before because I thought the offer had expired, but it appears that it still may be working.  You can sign-up for the Maven program and get the introductory box for just a penny!  Go to the referral link and use coupon code: SHAREON.


  1. Wow! So great that you didn't own any of the colors, score!

  2. Holy CRAP!!!!!!

    I've still yet to get my first Julep. I ogle them on others but when I get to the site and start to pick out something, I just never can do it. Weird! I should have gotten one of the mystery boxes. But with my luck with that stuff, I'd have gotten one polish and nail strips that don't fit. LOL!
