Ever since I heard about the Julep Maven subscription boxes, I have been dying to get one. I am not a Maven yet, but I did finally spring for a Julep Mystery Box. A Julep Mystery Box gives you a great deal on product that is almost out of stock, out of season, you know, odds and ends they have left over while cleaning out their warehouse. If you're okay with that (and I totally am), these are a great deal. This one just seemed way too good to pass up, $100 value for $25 (USD). So I placed my order and waited. And waited. And waited. I don't think I've ever checked my mailbox every day for an entire week in anticipation of a package before, but I did this time! I won't make you wait any longer, here is the unveiling of my box:
What did you get, I hear you ask excitedly? Well, I made out pretty well, I think. I received four polishes, an eye primer, a spa mask (!) for my nails and a lipgloss in one of the most gorgeous shades I've ever seen.
Julep Lipgloss in the colour 'Posh' - Regular price on julep.com = $20, Maven price = $16 *This colour is no longer available for purchase*
Julep Nail Mask (single pack) - Regular price of a pack of 10 on julep.com = $30, on sale right now for $10/pk *this item is still available for purchase*
Julep Blank Canvas Mattifying Eye Primer - Regular price on julep.com = $22, Maven price = $18 *this item is still available for purchase*
Julep nailpolish in the colour 'Max' (black & white confetti) - Regular price on julep.com = $14, Maven price = $12 *This colour is no longer available for purchase* I used the colour 'Paris' for pricing, it was closest to 'Max'.
Julep nailpolish in the colour 'Zoe' - Regular price on julep.com = $14, Maven price = $12 *This colour is still available for purchase*
Julep nailpolish in the colour 'Lynn' (nude) - Regular price on julep.com = $14, Maven price = $12 *This colour is no longer available for purchase* I used an average price, I was not able to find the style.
Julep nailpolish in the colour 'Gloria' - Regular price on julep.com = $14, Maven price = $12 *This colour is no longer available for purchase* I used the colour 'Brielle' for pricing, it was closest to 'Gloria'.
So? What did I think overall? I am thrilled and think I got a pretty good deal for my 30 Canadian dollars. Regular total cost is about $100, and Maven cost is about $84 (both in USD, I paid $30 CAD after shipping and exchange). I'm super psyched to try out the other three colours, even though I already have two other shades in the nude family, this one is a little darker, so it's okay. The lipgloss is such a beautiful colour that I have to try it out ASAP! I'm interested to see what the eye primer can do for me and I'll definitely give you a product review when I get those nail masks on!
My verdict? I need to talk to my manager about a raise so I can become a Maven as soon as possible so I can start getting some more of this awesome polish from Julep.
