About a week ago Julep announced their new Mystery Boxes. This time they had three varieties to choose from: Laguna Beach, The Hamptons, and Miami. Each one of the boxes was supposed to be filled with $70-$200 worth of products, and follow the main theme of the select “destination”. I personally lean more towards the classic hues, so for my first Mystery Box I chose The Hamptons, which Julep classifies as “classic, preppy, and glam”.

I ended up receiving the following products:
- Pomegranate Body Creme
- Strawberry-Mint Lip Balm
- Neon Twistbands x3
- Julep Jackie
- Julep Teri x2
That’s right, I really got two identical nail polishes in the same Mystery Box. I could see that happening if I bought more than one box, but I actually didn’t, so it had to be some sort of a mistake. I already emailed Julep CS about it and waiting to hear back from them.
Update: I was apparently supposed to receive Amelia as my third nail polish, and the CS lady was nice enough to send it out to me at no additional cost when I explained my situation and attached a few pictures of my box. Yay for good CS!
Now, aside from this little mishap, I’m pretty satisfied with the products and colors I got, except, maybe, the hair ties. IMO these neon colors are more suited for the Miami box.
The polishes are absolutely gorgeous, and I like both of them a lot. Teri (below) has a tough formula to work with because it’s more on the goopy and streaky side, but Jackie (above) is a beautiful semi-sheer red that provides a super even and streak-less coverage.
So all in all, I decided to splurge on a Laguna Beach box, too, and it’s already in transit to me as we speak. Can’t wait to see what I get in that one!
