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 - luxurious, sable 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.
