I can’t believe how long it has been since I got a Julep Mystery Box (or in this case, clutch)! The value for these are always really good and it’s a great way to start a Julep collection for not very much money. Even though I now have an extensive library of Julep colors, I still really enjoy getting the mystery boxes. I especially can’t resist the ones with exclusive colors!
The Cupid’s Mystery Clutch was $24.99 and came with the promise of $100+ worth of products, as well as two exclusive top coats. It was guaranteed for Valentine’s Day if you ordered by a specific date, and I would have received it on time if it weren’t for my leasing office misplacing this box. No fault of Julep’s, I swear!
Valentina (Pink chevron glitter top coat) | $14.00
Yuki (Snowy heart glitter top coat) | $14.00
Love festive top coats! These two really sold me on this clutch, since I’m a total sucker for anything with hearts, and anything that involves pink glitter. Couldn’t be happier with these two colors!
Sandi (Smoky eggplant creme) | $14.00
Queen Anne (Lilac confetti microglitter) | $14.00
Shari (Delicate sweet pea creme) | $14.00
Queen Anne is a duplicate for me, but it’s such a pretty color it might be nice to have an extra on hand. It would also make a great gift since it’s such a flattering color. I really adore Shari: I can never have enough soft pink creme colors! Overall I think the color curation was really on point and feels deliberate. The pink/purple hues are just perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Julep Lip Gloss in Splendid | $10.00
I have too much lip gloss at the moment, but I always hear good things about Julep’s formula. The color is a sheer rose shimmer, which is neutral enough for most skin tones, I would imagine. If this weren’t a full sized gloss I would totally try it! I just feel so bad opening a full sized one when I have a million samples waiting to get used. Subscription addict here….
Julep Gel Eye Glider in Olive | $16.00
If you’ve never tried Julep’s gel eye gliders yet, you really should! They’re surprisingly smooth and have amazing lasting power. While I’m glad this isn’t another black eye liner, I don’t think olive is my color. I tried it on last night and looked a bit silly. Maybe I’m just applying it wrong. If y’all have any tips for colored liner, I would love to hear them! With that being said, I stand by the staying power of these gliders.
Julep Glitter Clutch | $6.00 (?)
This is the clutch that came with the mystery box, and it’s well made enough for the price point. I probably won’t use it as an actual clutch for going out, but it will be a handy makeup bag or for traveling with nail polish.
There was (and still is!) a promo code going on for a free wedding duo with the code CONGRATS, so I managed to snag two extra colors! Check out this awesome packaging! You can get this duo for free with any $20+ purchase!
Congrats Duo (contains Sienna and Fifi) | $28.00
I’m not sure why the website lists this as a $33.00 value when it’s just two colors, because I don’t think the box should value $5 (even though it’s really pretty). I like the colors and think they’re very wedding-appropriate. Definitely grab this for free while you can! Add the duo to your cart before applying the promo code.
My total value before the congrat bonus is $102.00, and with the bonus is $130.00. I’m pleased with that amount for the $25 I paid. Every time I get one of the mystery boxes I re-realize why I like them so much! They were one of the first reasons I got hooked on Julep in the first place. Can’t wait to see something fun for March and April! I’m hoping for some great matte finishes and unique colors.
