Onto the point of this post! This is my purchase from the June 2013 Secret Shop on Julep.com. The Secret Shop opens the 1st of the month for all Mavens who purchased a box for that month. It has a lot of really great deals on nail polish (there are a lot of trios) and beauty products. I especially like the sets; the ones where you get a lot of products that are kind of "themed" together (so like my last set, the Spring Clean Skincare which came with a scrub, a body butter, and some scrubby towels) for a great price. I get the feeling this is how Julep gets rid of its old stock and extra products as I've noticed some of the packaging is older or products are discontinued.
This month I spent a little more than I intended to, but I got a good set that included some products I really wanted to try and nail polish trio that had a color I really wanted. I don't remember exactly how much I paid, but I believe it was around $35-$38. I got the "Anchors Away" nail polish trio which included the colors Ally, Leila, and Lena and the "Primped n' Proper Mani Set".
Box O' Julep! All the nail polishes were swaddled in bubblewrap to protect them, though it was kind of weird to see that my "Anchors Away" trio was just...floating around the big box. They arrived safe and sound, so it's not that big a deal.
I'm very pleased with my "Anchors Away" trio; I think all three colors are beautiful and very wearable, and it only cost me about...$15 I think, so $5 a polish. An excellent deal!
Next up is my Primped N' Proper Mani Set.
I got the Primped N' Proper Mani Set for two items; the essential cuticle oil and the nail polish remover. The other items were kind of like free bonuses for me, which is awesome. For the $18 I paid, I would have been happy with just the oil and remover!
If my Primped N' Proper Mani Set stopped right there, I would have been perfectly happy. But I still got three other products!
The final item in my set is a little pot of nail glitter.
So there you have it! Another very successful Julep Secret Shop purchase! I'm very pleased with everything I got and I look forward to July's shop (actually, what I'm looking MOST forward to right now is the Warehouse Sale which is happening right now in Seattle, WA and then online on the 17th).
Thanks for reading! <3
