I can't wait for mine now. Ahhhh. It'll be until next Thursday at least since I'm out of town for the holidays. Ohhhh welllll.

I got the tracking number on Wednesday, but the USPS site says that it was received into their system today. So it's likely been waiting around to be shipped out for 2 days minimum. Maybe I'll get lucky tomorrow and get it in the mail.

Check again, I got that same tracking update this morning but mine was delivered today!

Spoilers for some people's boxes are up:

 

http://www.renolynreviews.com/2012/12/julep-new-years-mystery-box-2012.html

http://katlynemakeup.blogspot.com/2012/12/julep-new-years-mystery-box.html

 

(note: obvs not my blog, I pulled these off of Julep's FB page where people were advertising)

 

The two boxes content's seem relatively similar. I hope I don't get the same product they get since I've gotten that... though I've gotten a majority of their products at this point 'cause I received a $200-value product lover's box last time around. O.o Still... hopefully there won't be any polishes I don't already have.

 

I can't believe some people are still complaining. True the first box "barely" made the $100 value, but considering the fact that you're getting all when paying $20... I still Julep overvalues their products sometimes (and then subsequently deppriates them), but I'd definitely say that even the lowest "values" of boxes feel like you got your money's worth.

Now you have me excited!! I got my shipping notice on Wednesday too and it just showed up as received today. Now I have hope that it's coming tomorrow. This is my first mystery box and I'm super excited- I can't wait to start using my new iPad mini...lol... A girl can dream:D

Interesting. The status is still the same, so I'm hoping it just hasn't updated in the system and that I'll get it tomorrow.

the second one is my blog :) and I do feel like I got my money's worth, and either way, I'm not into complaining, i just went off what the website said and compiled it into a list, since most people care about "bang for your buck". I'd be ok if I got 2 nail polishes, because its still 1.5X my input.

Hey girls I'm new here. :) I also got one of the Mystery boxes but i was wondering if any of you know how long it takes for them to arrive in California, for those of you who live here

My Julep stuff always gets to DC really fast. Like 2-3 days. 

post #132 of 209

Mine arrived at my local post office this morning! We'll see if it actually makes it out today though :) 

post #133 of 209

Mine just came!

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Four colours: Isla, Portia, Hoch, mystery that looks almost exactly like Hilary except slightly redder glitter. ($14 * 4)

Matte coat ($14)
Age-defying hand brightener ($32)
3 nail polish remover pads ($3)
Tote bag ($5)
+ 1 glitter pot + 3 hand brigthener packets
 
=$110

As I said earlier, I can't complain because I feel like I got my money's worth. That, however, does not mean I particularly care for the contents since I got so many dupes, but that's a risk with mystery bags always, isn't it?

 

though I don't understand why they're giving the packets when it's the same product in the bag =_=;;

haha, you and I got the exact same bag! except I got 2 hand scrubs(which I thought was cool because youre supposed to use the hand scrub before the brightener, I thought it was on purpose, so idk why you got the brightener packets!!!!! seems redundant :/) instead of the 3 hand brighteners. but awesome, we're bag twins!!! I really like the fact that it seems like the polishes theyre sending out(with the exception of the mystery glitter) are coordinated, they fit well together. I plan to put portia over both Hoch and Isla! lol, I will probably save the mystery for halloween, thats what the colors remind me of, I will put it over a bright orange polish! lol. I've NEVER used a matte top coat, so idk how I'll deal with that. lol. but its fun to experiment.

Got my boxes. One is a gift for MIL. Hope she likes the colors she's getting. On the invoice it says Mystery Box 1

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

HATE that they are still giving out those stupid bags. They are a size worth using for anything.
My box:
Stupid Julep bag
Sandra (this makes 3 bottles I have of this now)
Mystery glitter
Courtney
Elosie
Matte Coat
silver glitter pot

Brightening Lotion
various sample packets like everyone else

Guess I'm kind of over the mystery boxes for a while.

I got mine today. While overall, I'm of a mixed bag of what I received, I think I did better on the mystery box than I would have on January's box. So I can't complain.

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Pedi creme
Yet Another Melissa. I literally gave one of the 4 I've gotten in mystery boxes away as a gift yesterday. *sigh*
Matte Top Coat - already have one from the suedes
Gwyneth
The mystery glitter
Sandra
Brandt - from the Trina Turk collection
Blue glitter pot
2 nail polish remover pads
2 packets of the glycolic hand scrub

That's the same box I just got. Out of all the boxes I saw, this was the one I was least excited about :( Oh well. I got a few new colors and the pedi creme (which I already have from a previous box) will be a great addition to the gift basket I'm putting together for a friend! I can't complain for the value and it was fun to get a sub box that I had NO Idea what was coming. I always spoil my BB, Ipsy, etc.

One of mine has been there for 3 days now and tracking info has not updated at all :( im getting impatient  

post #142 of 209

I honestly wish they'd said "$100 value bags, with opportunity to win ipad mini" because that's probably the only one that has that much. I still probably would've gotten one because stuf!!

 

I'm a little disappointed there doesn't seem to be more variation in what they're sending... :\

I'm getting the mini... Positive thinking biggrin.gif

I've thought from the beginning that the "to $500 value" is referring to whoever will get the iPad mini. My guess is every box will be around the $100 value mark except the iPad box. I haven't seen anyone with a $200+ value box though so they may be out there?

Ahh.. I was so tempted to get the New Years Mystery Box but I'm so glad I passed on it.  I bought two of the mystery wristlets and I think that was a better deal because you knew you were guaranteed the cuticle oil (one of my favorites out of all their products).  The polishes that came with those were kind of lame, and the kind I would never pick out myself. 

 

All in all the holiday gift sets (ie, the Holiday Sparkles set, worth $120+ but is on sale for $28) were better deals to me: you knew what you were getting and they were massively discounted.

Have any of ya'll tried the freedom top coat yet? I put mine on today and am curious to see how it wears. It dried quickly and left a very shiny finish, so I like it so far. 

post #148 of 209
My box is in route- yay- it finally started moving. I got an email Wednesday that it was shipped but it only showed an acceptance on the 21st and it shows it departed Washington on th 22nd- my mini is on its way!! Wishful thinking, wishful thinking...biggrin.gif Maybe tomorrow- hopefully- then I'll have something to open on Xmas!!,

I tried it today! I loved the finish that it gave and it did dry quickly. I put it over a lightbulb for a few minutes like it said. Also curious to see how it lasts. Let me know how it goes for you!,
post #150 of 209

I ordered two, one got here Saturday, and the other should be here tomorrow!

 

My first one had the Matte top coat (which I'm so super excited for!), Porita (which I ALMOST got with last months glitters but decided on Vivien instead, so yay!), Isla, Hoch, and the brown mystery glitter.

 

I was overall happy with the box, especially since I ended up skipping the January box. I can't wait for my second one to get here, hopefully there will be a little variety from my first!
