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.

Uh... Did anyone else see the teaser on Instagram? If we're getting everything: Head. Explode.

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!

    • Amazing video from Second Year No Buyer Elle S today on YouTube: "$1000 Worth of Eyeshadow ... What Could I have Bought Instead?" Elle shows only seven palettes that cost a total of $1000 (CAD). Elle is not in the dream of denial shopping. She is serious about money, facing reality, real life (though she is still enjoying the creativity of makeup). "I can't afford it," she says. I can relate to her point about being someone who buys a lot of cosmetics, but never goes for a mani or pedi, or anything like that. She asks: How many things have I missed because of my purchases? Now that's something to think about! I often think of how my life would have been different if I'd been able to start on this No Buy path at a young age. There was no Internet then, so I did not have this kind of inspiration. I only had magazines and TV ads telling me to buy, buy, buy!  But, why do all the No Buy people say they want to replace shopping with experiences? Shopping is an experience too! It a great experience and that's why we like it. I'm only giving it up to get rid of debt, because I know money makes me happy.  I grew up in 1970s suburban America. I grew up in a shopping mall and in K Mart. I was always at those places with my friends, searching for identity. So of course shopping is high on my list of experiences.  THE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE-1970s-1980s The Barbie Dolls and Barbie clothes at K Mart Getting a mood ring at K Mart and feeling so cool  The excited butterflies in the tummy, when pulling into the shopping mall parking lot The bright lights and the smell of the Cinnabon store The Waldenbooks, where you bought Laura Ingalls Wilder books, where you discovered Sylvia Plath The record store, where you thumbed through record albums, and you discovered Blondie and Jacqueline du Pre The Clinique counter, where the lady did your makeup and made you feel glamorous and grown up, and assured you Brooke Shields was nothing without her makeup  The food! Arthur Treachers Fish and Chips, Morrisons Cafeteria with the fried chicken and buttery rolls and iced tea All the latest issues of Teen and Seventeen magazine The Super X drugstore with Sophia perfume, Vidal Sassoon shampoo, and Maybelline Kissing Potion The movie theater where you saw The Turning Point seven times and fell in love with ballet (1977 the most magical year) Orange Julius Trying European cheese samples at the Swiss Colony The ORLANE counter - the epitome of elegance to me  The Stendahl counter - This was a really beautiful and expensive French cosmetics brand. The lady at the counter was French. I practiced my French with her and she sent me a little note in French later on. She was kind. I had cystic acne. It was bad. "Oh, I see you have a little but of acne. Not to worry, it just needs a bit of astringent and fond de teint." She was tactful and gave me nice samples.  My first Estee Lauder GWP - I thought I was Princess Di - it had Cinnibar perfume My first LANCOME GWP - I thought I was Princess Caroline. I was given Sun Touched Terra lipstick  Princess Marcella Borghese Germaine Monteil - Royal Secret Alexandra de Markoff - I never did get to try that legendary foundation - department store cosmetics were rare and glorious treats Adrien Arpel in her pre HSN days  The Erno Laszlo counter. It was so mysterious. You could not buy from them unless you went through a kind of initiation. You had to get an analysis and buy a special kit. It was fascinating. Now they just have samples going in beauty sub boxes any old way - Dr. L would not be very happy. He wanted his beauty routines done right and they were quite unorthodox. See the book, The Natural Way to Super Beauty by Mary Ann Crenshaw to know more about this.  And I could go on and on. Of course I had no credit cards then, no job, just a little allowance. So I was not really ever spending much, just having fun. It's when you're older and have credit and money that it becomes a problem. Now there's no money, no time to shop, K Mart and the malls are ghost towns. And don't get me started on how much more fun TV was back then. Even going to the library was so much fun. Now all is so dull, dull, dull! I just get up, go to my job, come home, eat dinner, go to bed, and hope that my No Buy will make me rich and happy one day.           
    • i love natural products, but before buying products , i encourage u to know what type ur skin and read about it well , then everything will be clear for u and easy
    • i need info regarding Lash Extensions from real experience ?! 
    • I am religiously using Vitamin C, E, Ferulic Acid serum by Radium Skin. They ship overseas. And its not expensive too, considering how much other mainstream labels are charging.
