Rainbow Honey Mystery Box

Recommended Posts

Pretty sure USPS is drunk. I have two packages I'm waiting on that have been delivered to the wrong post offices. Close - in the same county, but not to mine. So they're delayed a couple days.

Hoping you're right but RH has been notorious for not shipping for days after the label has been made. After awhile, you see a pattern there that can't always be on the PO.

Mine is showing at my local post office, so it could arrive today! Then again, my tracking app showed a different package as out for delivery on Saturday, and it has yet to show up. *shrug*

I don't know if I ever got shipping but I think this is my last month with Rainbow Honey, as sad as it is, they just can't compete with my love for Native War Paints.

Just looked at IG, and saw a picture... The one showing the labels, is that what you're referring to?

Yeah, the Postal Service is super messed up this time of year. Mine still says it's in pre-shipping mode. Bleh!

 

I saw the Instagram post and some of them looked like repeats if you look at the labels really closely, but I still think it looks like a good chunk of polishes (if they're all polishes and one's not a cuticle oil).

Yup, the one with the labels. And a theme. I'm a sucker for a good theme.

 

ETA: Now I see that the photo has two of each of the shades, but, still, THEME. Love it.

Ooh, quick drive-by post!  Photos to come later, but a brief overview of the contents.  The photo I saw on Instagram made it look like there was only two polishes in there.  Actual contents:

 

  • Two polishes (one is like a red-and-gold version of Aurora from last month, and the other is a glitter topper that reminds me of a snowball rolled in a mixture of gravel and crushed-up disco ball.  I mean this in a good way!  I'm seriously digging it!)
  • Scented top coat (YAY!)  (even though I also just picked up the cranberry sangria one as well.  I’ve been going through about half a bottle a month lately, so I will always welcome more!)
  • Lotion
  • Solid perfume
  • Cutlcle balm

Those last four are in Muscovite, a new scent that has no real description but is a kind of chilly wintery fruity (and almost spicy) scent.



And now I get to clean the litter box before I can do anything else.  Are you jealous yet?

 

ETA: Photo!

Thank for the information! I'm excited. Hopefully mine will just magically arrive tomorrow. LoL

Edited to add: Ooooooooh, those are pretty!!

not impressed - maybe it will look better once I have it.

 

 

 

 

there are other colors besides red and purple (which we got recently) and blue.  I wish they would do some nice deep colors instead of these bright colors for a change..

 

 

a deep plum or a hunter green....

What appears to be blue is not actually blue. That's just how it photographs, kind of like the ocean. In other news, the scent of the month reminds me a bit of grape Pixi Stix.

Awkward swatches:

The top on the white background (a Priority mail bubbleope, for the very few who may have remotely cared) is Woland.  I put it on a white background to show the density.  It's a glitter topper, so it's basically just sparkle with a dash of black glitter thrown in for good measure.  The bottom is The Master.  What you can't really see very well (since it does *not* play well with an iPhone camera) is that it's pinkish-red with gold flakes.  It actually reminds me of Iron Man.  And when you dig into the inspiration for the collection, it's pretty fitting:  It's based on a book about life in the Soviet Union, and the colors in the polish reflect the colors of that flag.  Now I'm interested in seeing the third color in the collection (the info sheet indicated that's A Thing) so I can have the whole set!

I finally got my package today!

 

 

 

The colors are awesome in person. I especially like the reddish one. I was a bit unsure of the scent when I read descriptions of it, but I like it quite a lot. It's like sweet and also like laundry at the same time. LoL

I am not a fan of

 

 

the master....but I love woland.  The scent is too fruity grapey for me.

I want to be wow'd by their colors.   I like (not love) some of them lately.   I am also on nailpolish overload. 

 

I need to decide if I want to keep this sub.  I have cancelled 2 subs already because of boredom, and this one is getting close to that for me...

 

I have so many nailpolishes already and the colors I would like them to do - darker shades - like plum and forest green, deep navy - they don't do.  They seem to like these bright colors in the winter, and I am looking for these darker ones in the winter time...

 

 

decisions, decisions....

December was the first month I was truly disappointed. I didn't care for the muscovite scent..which is a real bummer when 4 of 6 items have that scent! I actually haven't loved any of the fall scents. Summer scents were totally my thing...summer juice, midori, royal fruits....gimme gimme!

 

I just recently placed an order for a few items with those aforementioned scents, and was really pleasantly surprised to find a couple bonus items in my order!! Definitely put a smile on my face and helped put the bad December reaction away.

 

Can't wait to see what's in store for January, hope it's a LOVE month. :)

Has everyone jumped shop? Y'all are so quiet in here! I never actually subscribed to the bag, just added a couple on to orders, but I count on you guys to keep me up on the new bags! ;-) Saw a couple of spoilers on Instagram, and I'm dying to know how this month's scent is! It's my favorite, and I really like the looks of one of the polishes, so it might be worth an order for me... after all, can always use more cuticle oil!

    • For a long time I was looking for a remedy that would help from rashes and acne and finally found its ideal remedy for problem skin. I ordered it on the site https://koreakos.com/skin-care/cream/acnes-moisture-cream-50ml. The tool should be applied in the morning and evening, after clearing the skin. After the first application, all the redness on the skin goes away, it becomes more healthy and even. I was very pleased with the result! 
    • Cleanse your skin twice a day (morning and night) using tepid water and a cleanser that is gentle, fragrance-free and suited to your skin type. Avoid using regular soap, which promotes acne. Regular cleansing helps eliminate any surplus of sebum on the skin's surface. Get More Information:-  https://genericcare.blogspot.com/2019/02/normal-0-false-false-false-en-us-x-none.html  
       
    • Having diabetes can also cause you to lose morehair than usual. ... People with diabetes are more likely to have a condition called alopecia areata. With alopecia, the immune system attacks the hairfollicles, leading to patches of hair loss on the head and on other parts of the body, While there's not a lot of research connecting high-sugar diets with hair loss, experts know that sugar promotes inflammation. When people eat sugar or carbs,the sugar floods the blood, causing a spike of insulin and androgens, which bind tohair follicles and cause the hair to fall out.
    • How it feels to be shopping too much after being on No Buy for a year It's been almost a month now of shopping too much after breaking my No Buy, and I've had a lot of feelings of sadness, guilt, and anxiety. I feel worse than ever about my shopping, because it's creating cognitive dissonance with the new habits I set up last year. I have noticed the following thoughts and feelings: Rip Van Winkle/ROMO Effect - I did not keep up with beauty boxes and promos through all of 2018. I was blissfully ignorant. When I began shopping again, I saw many things I missed during the year, and now have ROMO (Regret on Missing Out). For example, I became aware of all the Sephora Play! Smarts boxes from last year, and wanted to buy them from eBay! This is a little overwhelming! All the dazzling new things and exciting, new to me box programs like Boxyluxe and Ipsy upgrades are even more tempting as I have been away so long.  I feel selfish. When I'm shopping for myself, I feel I should be saving the money to help family members. I began to contribute and share more with family during my No Buy, and now I feel bad focusing so much on myself again. I complained to my cousin that I was sad that my New Years resolutions were a failure. In the middle of all my haul packages I had a little package from her with a Celtic charm in a little green bag and inspirational bookmarks. I felt bad, because she has it really rough. Her husband works for the government, so he has been out of work in this cruel winter. Here she is sending me a package. I should be doing for her and for my other family members instead of all this selfish hauling.  I'm scared of getting a lot of new stuff! This is new. For a year I had a system. Everything was organized just so. I knew how much I had of each thing. I was getting close to the end of using all my back stocks of skin and hair care. Now when I go to haul, I want to buy things, but then I feel bad because there won't be room for them in the storage I have set up, and it will take me that much longer to use everything. I did not feel this way before being on No Buy for a year.  I learned a little bit about what really works for me during the No Buy year. I did a whole year of painstaking experimentation with Mary Kay eye shadow sample cards, and learned that many colors don't work for me. When shopping resumed, I was ready to grab for anything with a pretty package again, but then I recalled that those shades do not work for me. When I see all the fabulous new things, and get new things in the mail, it makes the things I have look old and tired. When I was not shopping, I loved my things, and I would not dream of parting with them. But when I began seeing new things, I had an impulse to throw the old stuff out, which my No Buy self would be dead against.  I'm scared of going into more debt. I worked so hard to pay off debt through all of 2018, and I have been opening up new credit cards to shop. I keep telling myself I'll use them in a controlled way, but that never worked in the past. I'm scared and want them to hurry up and come in the mail so I can close them. I won't have peace of mind until I can get rid of them.  This whole mess up has left me feeling depressed. The bad feelings outweigh the fun, yet part of me still wants to buy. I want to try to do it in a controlled way. I'm hoping I'll be calming down since it's been almost a month now.  I guess these feeling of cognitive dissonance show that my No Buy was a success in that it set up good habits or new attitudes, but my No Buy self is fighting, fighting, with my old shopping self. 
    • I got another little Shop Miss A haul: Enamel Clover Stud Earrings in White - very beautiful Barielle nail treatment cream Nail Strengthener in a pen form with a brush at the end  Body oils - African Musk; Baby Powder; White Linen Type - these smell good, especially the African Musk.  Excellent buy for $6.00.  Two more Shop Miss A hauls on the way.
