For this month's mystery box (from what I've seen, Julep does a mystery box every month, shortly after the Secret Shop closes. I don't know if they've always done this, since I've only been a Maven, and have only been buying things from them, since about March.) Julep did something a little different. Instead of just one mystery box, they had three different types you could chose from. Normally, if you chose to buy more than one mystery box, you run the risk of getting two of the same boxes, since there are a few different versions, thus getting doubles of polishes and products. With the three different boxes offered, you could buy one of each and (at least in theory) not get any doubles. The boxes this month were "Destination" themed; there was a Laguna Beach box, which was described as being "trendy, vibrant, and fun", there was a Miami box, which was "bold, glitzy, and energetic", and there was a Hamptons box, which was "preppy, glam, and classic". I debated between getting a Laguna Beach box or a Miami box (I'm not really a Hamptons style of girl), but I finally settled on Laguna Beach. I wanted to avoid getting a neon, garishly bright nail polish since I never wear colors like that, and I felt safer with Laguna Beach than with Miami. Also, I think Laguna Beach is a cooler place.
According to my packing slip, I ended with with version 6 of the Laguna Beach boxes.
And here's my box!
The next disappointment came with my big product, the Hand and Cuticle Stick.
Now on to the polishes! Also, unfortunately, on to more disappointment. I got three polishes in this mystery box; Simone, Nikki, and Natalie.
Finally, the biggest disappointment in my mystery box:
And that was my Laguna Beach ver. 6 mystery box. Overall, I found it very disappointing. On the bright side, the only product I was truly upset about was Nikki; everything else was generally nice, just a little "meh". This box was only $25, so it's not like I'm out that much money. This box has by no means soured me on Julep mystery boxes; I'm still super pumped for the next mystery box and I hope it comes out soon!
