The 'Tote-Ally Amazing Julep Mystery Box' comes with a canvas tote and at least $120 worth of nail and beauty products. My box came with eyeliner, lipstick, and five bottles of nail polish. I was overjoyed when I first laid eyes on everything - I could not have asked for better items!
The crème lipstick came in the shade Last Call. While it looked shockingly pink in the tube, it was actually exactly the kind of pink I prefer. I like to avoid red lipstick because it's too overwhelming on my fuller lips; as a result, I always gravitate towards more natural pinks. While this Julep bullet is bolder than my current shade from Elizabeth Arden, I'm happy to add a brighter colour to my arsenal for fancier occasions.

But of course, it's Julep's nail polish that I've been dying to try. I tend to only like pastel, red, or sparkly colours, so I was pleasantly surprised to find Julep practically catered to my tastes with the shades it gave me! The formula was rich, and the brush fanned out nicely for smooth application. Although I haven't tried many nail polish brands, I would say Julep is good enough to rival Joe Fresh. Joe Fresh polish has amazing application, but I can tell Julep's formula is of higher quality.
The Posey shade stood out to me most, so I decided to try it first. I paired it with a Missy accent nail, which ended up looking like fantastic molten silver glitter. Very satisfied with the final result! I will be posting photos to Facebook as I go through the other bottles, so be sure to follow along if you're interested in seeing how the remaining shades look.
