Julep Picnic Mystery Box – August Review


I got sucked into buying the Julep Picnic Mystery Box. When I got the email saying they were going on sale I briefly considered buying one, but it was the tweet that did me in. Julep tweeted a promo code and I ended up going for it. The box ended up costing me $8.99 in total. Great deal right! The boxes go for $24.99 and $39.99. They told us one of the colours of nail polish that would be in the box and the rest a mystery. I love surprises, so I couldn’t resist.

My box was version 1.


Yes They Are!

Sugar Smooch Lip Scrub

This scrumptious blend of brown sugar, molasses, conditioning oils, vitamin E, and shea butter will leave your lips soft, smooth, and ready for color (or kisses). I love the packaging, so pretty. I’ll definitely use this. Yummy - smells so good!


Nail Polish



Evie is the colour I knew would be in the box. Fresh-picked raspberry crème with gold shimmer. I think this colour is alright, but not my fave.



A frosted pink pearl. I like this one a lot! I like the subtle, soft colour.



Sheer lavender jelly nail glaze. Another pretty shade.



Nantucket red crème. I remember seeing this color when it first came out and I didn’t care for it too much, but now seeing it in person - it’s my favourite of the bunch. Maybe it’s the name (I called my grandmother Nan. She passed away about a year and a half ago. I love and miss her like crazy! Not get too sentimental, but it totally reminds me of her. I’m pretty sure she’d love this colour too.)


If it wasn’t for this amazing deal I would've missed out on this great box. I am so glad it worked out this way. Believe it or not, I’ve been enjoying doing my nails more and I will definitely put at least some of these colours to use. Did you get the Picnic Mystery Box? What do you think of Julep?
