Inside my Mehron Mystery Box

Friday, September 18, 2020


I ordered the Mehron Mystery Box (Halloween 2020) a week or so ago. It was advertised on their Instagram page as containing products valued at $200 for only $50. Like all mystery boxes, it was a crapshoot on what a person was to get.

Here's what their web page said about the mystery box:

Mehron's Mystery Box is full of surprises. Mystery box includes your favorites like Paradise Makeup AQ, SFX makeup, Pro Beauty, brushes, tools, and more! Save big $200 of product for only $50!! All boxes come with the same items. Limited time while supplies last. All sales final, not eligible for refunds.

My box arrived today, which was a nice surprise. Now knowing that mystery boxes are a crapshoot I knew that if I didn't like the products that's okay because anything in it that I didn't like or use one of my daughters might take because Halloween is just right around the corner.

 

Here's what's inside my Mehron Halloween Mystery Box (all links are non-affiliates) with retail prices as listed on their website as of this post:

TOTAL $188.80 $158.80
*NOTE: The three 0.05 oz Spirit Gums are NOT sold on Mehron's website. 0.05 x 3 = 0.15 oz. That's the closest to the smallest sample size (0.125) sold for $4.95.

**Note: The color Chestnut Brown is no longer available on their site. It originally sold for $9.95 & current colors on their site sell for $4.50 each.

My box was definitely not the advertised value of the box of $200 ($11.20 short of the advertised retail value). Also, I'm not factoring in pro pricing which is 10% less than retail. So I don't know if I'm missing anything from the box (cause all boxes are the same thing) OR if they didn't add products up correctly when they advertised it as a $200 value.

While it IS still well worth the $50 it does contain products on sale or on clearance (or no longer available). So buyer beware with mystery boxes as many companies do use it to get rid of overstock or nearly expiring items or stuff that just doesn't sell.
