Rainbow Honey Mystery Bag: September 2014

Hey friends!

How’s your Monday going? I am happy to report that I am, (crossing my fingers), going to have a somewhat normal week! I might even get to paint my nails and talk to my husband!

This is perfect timing because last week I got my Rainbow Honey Mystery Bag. My nails have been woefully boring due to lack of time, but thankfully Rainbow Honey’s September offerings are very lovely and I will soon have fingernails covered in glitter again!

Rainbow Honey also shared some new products in the mystery bag this month, addressing some of the minor gripes I had last month, so overall I was pretty excited about September’s collection.

Read on to find out what I got this month!

So my biggest complaints with Rainbow Honey last month was we had been getting too many of the same products, i.e. pink nail polishes, cuticle balms, and perfume roller balls.

I appreciate that Rainbow Honey seems to have attempted to address some of these issues this month with their September bag. I was most excited by the nail polish colors this month, because it was my first time to receive any kind of red or deep blue from them.

Sugarberries, Salacia, and Asteroid B

Sugarberries- This color looks like a pile of fall leaves to me, it’s a pretty crimson red color with lots of glitter.

Salacia- This polish is a sea green with silver glitter in it, pretty but I don’t know how well it will fit in my fall rotation.

Asteroid B– A deep blue with star shaped glitter in it! The blue base is pretty sheer, but overall I like this color. The space name fits the shade well.

I finally invested in some nail swatch sticks, ($3 bucks on Amazon), because I got tired of having 3 different color fingernails. This picture has 3 coats of each and a top coat.

Pomme Rouge Body Balm, Pomme Rouge Body Lotion, and Pomme Rouge Handsoap.

I was also pretty pleased with Rainbow Honey’s bath products this month.

Pomme Rouge, (I googled searched this translation because I am uncultured and did not know it meant “Red Apple”), was the scent of the month. True to it’s name, I picked up on cinnamon, spicy fall scents in all the product this month.

The Pomme Rouge Handsoap, indeedsmells awesome and is adorable. I put it in my guest bathroom so people will think I have good taste.

The Pomme Rouge Body Lotion is fragrant and moisturizing. The mini size makes it perfect for throwing into my purse and being that lady that smells good all the time.

The Pomme Rouge Body Balm, wasn’t bad, it just confused me. I live in the most humid place ever, so I don’t really have a lot of needs for body balm. I put it on my elbows? Knees? Perhaps some of you ladies in dryer climates can tell me how to use this. Anyway I don’t think this is a bad product, I’m just having some user errors with it.

Overall, I was much happier with Rainbow Honey this month. I appreciated that they used some seasonal scents and colors, and also introduced us to new products.

For $12.50 a month, this is definitely my favorite nail polish subscription.

    I’m a little sad that they don’t yet ship to Canada – I am hoping soon! It is by far the most reasonably priced nail polish subscription – and looks so cute!

    • Oh no, I didn’t realize they don’t ship to Canada! I will cross my fingers for you!

      Do you guys have any equivalent there? (I know Hello Waffle, an indie cosmetics store I like is based out of Canada, and it takes foreverrrr to get to me.)


  2. Wow, love that! I might have to pick one up later. Use the body balm on your knees, elbows, feet, pretty much any place that gets dry and rough. I get this weird dry spot under just one breast that I use body balm on. The stick form is so nice so you don’t get super greasy hands.
