I might, still thinking about it.

 

 

I don't feel as tempted to get this one as I was the Sea Salt Mystery Box.... I have to agree... it does feel like a risk..

Yes, it really lasts!  Impressed, hope they come out with more colors in this formula.

It's really good to know that the lipstick lasts.

I'm new to Julep (and Subscription Boxes) and wanted to make sure their lipsticks lasted before diving in.  

Do they ever send out lipstick samples?

This lipstick is a brand-new product for Julep, so Mavens were the first to get them.  We really have no idea what they're likely to do in the future.  I would be a little bit surprised if they did send out lipstick samples, though, because the only samples I've seen/received from them have been nail polish remover wipes and hand/foot creams, and they've had the lip gloss for ages.  If they *were* to send out lip color samples, I think they would have started doing so with the lip gloss.

Yep. The yellow is called Charlie and the green is Korin. I'll be passing on this box.

So I decided not to get the mystery box just in case June is really amazing and I want to upgrade. I really regret not getting the upgrade last month.

I'm pretty sure that's an old yellow. -- The mystery yellow from a bunch of old mystery bags and the mystery store starting as early as August of last year (when I got mine). Mine is still unsealed... just not interested.

I think Charlie is a creme color and the previous mystery yellow has a shimmer to it so I believe that they are different. I can confirm that later if I get the yellow in my mystery box.

I too , ordered America. It is so pretty!  Just showed up yesterday. Next I want Lucky. My 8 year old and I love glittery stuff.  I just joined and also ordered the May Bombshell. Love the lipsticks. I think I have ordered 5 times this  month. Also ordered the Mystery Box. I am so addicted!

 

Elaine, if you do pick up Lucky, keep in mind that it will stain pretty badly when you remove it. Not a good idea to remove just before going to work... My fingertips look vaguely amphibian this morning. plain.gif

I got the same box. Not that great of a box for me as half were dupes. The only good thing is that I wanted an extra Avery as a gift so now I don't have to buy one. Have to say I was shocked that there wasn't any product.

Do they have different mystery boxes. I saw some shots on the Julep FB page and some ladies had like 6 polishes and others had way more.

I was hoping for product since  I just joined this month. Kind of bummed . I do love the colors I have seen so far.

They have different variations, yes. Most people end up with 6 polishes, some less but with other products instead. One box variant (#7) has 15 or 16 polishes, but the chances of receiving it are very slim.

Finally got my May box yesterday, huzzah! I ended up getting the full upgrade on this one. Love these colours too much not to. Paris was the one polish in this set that I wasn't really sold on, but the more I see it on people's fingers, the more it's growing on me. I can't stop sniffing the sugar smooch!

 

I didn't end up getting any hair pins in my box, was I supposed to?

Yes, every one that ordered the May box should have received the hair pins. They are sending them out to people who didn't receive them, you can send them an email.
