Julep Cupid Mystery Box

I'm a sucker for two things: a surprise and a good deal. When Julep combines those two things in their seasonal mystery boxes, you can be sure that I will be purchasing one. With the Cupid Mystery Box offer you were guaranteed to receive at least 4 Valentine's appropriate polishes along with either a mystery holographic or a coupon for the colour of your choice. On top of that there was the possibility of receiving a $1,000 Visa gift card or jewelry from Baublebar. Depending on which box you received, the value ranged from $70 to $200 all for the price of $19.99. Good deal, right?

My box finally arrived yesterday (shipping takes 2-3 weeks to Canada) and I was very excited to see what I got. I received box number seven and am extremely happy with my polish colours and the Camellia lip gloss was a nice addition. Lord knows, I can never have too many lip products.

| L to R: Camellia lip vernis, Carrie, Maria, Petra, Morgan |

My favourite of the four is probably Petra - I've been looking at it since it was offered in the December 2012 Maven box. I was also impressed with Maria; I used two coats for the swatch but likely could have gotten away with one.

Now I have to decide on my free colour. Suggestions?
