October Rainbow Honey Mystery Bag - large

Rainbow Honey is a nail polish that is sold mostly online. I believe they have one retailer in the US down in San Diego, CA. Each Rainbow Honey mystery bag will have sneak peaks and preview of new lacquers, unreleased samples of future collections and exciting new products made by the Rainbow Honey Lab! They have two sizes of mystery bag mini and full size. The mini mystery bag is $10 plus shipping which I think is $3.95. The full size  mystery bag is $25 and includes shipping. The difference between the two bags, besides price is size of the products. The mini mystery bag will have the mini size bottles of nail polish and smaller versions of whatever is included in the bag. I debated on which one to get because I actually like the smaller bottle of nail polish. I have so many polishes that I never finish a bottle so the small ones are perfect for me. Then I thought for only $11 more I can get full size versions of everything. Decisions, decisions. Finally I decided on the full size mystery bag.

Price: Small $13.95, Full size $25. Also available as a free gift with $65 purchase.

The good:

Price: $25 is kind of a lot on a subscription but $14 (with shipping) isn't so bad. I like that  they have two different price points.

Love what you got: The have a website full of stuff you can order.

Booklet: The include a booklet with info on the products.

The not so good:

Skip a month: I don't see a skip option

The package comes wrapped in bubble wrap with info about the included items.

Contents of the large mystery bag. 

FULL SIZE nail polish in café con leche, light shade of brown, packed w/micro gold and silver pigments. Value = $10.00

FULL SIZE nail polish in zi, purple lacquer packed w/micro gold, blue, silver and magenta glitters. Value = $10.00

FULL SIZE all your base. Value = $8.00

FULL SIZE Sweet November Rollerball eau de parfum. Value = $12.00

FULL SIZE L'orange ganache lip balm. Value = $5.00

FULL SIZE Sweet November Shimmer Soap. Value = $8.00

Dotting Tool. Value = $0.40?? (similar one found in a set of 5 on Amazon for $1.95)

The value of the mystery bag is at least $53.40. I wasn't too excited about the base coat, although I do use it. Rainbow Honey has such fun colors so when I see something clear it's kind of a let down. It will get used though and I'm sure I'll be thankful that I have it when I need it. Now let's talk about the colors. At first I thought the beige color was kinda of boring but when I looked closer I could see the sparkles in it. I think it's going to look great on. The purple is just plain gorgeous. I didn't open the rollerball yet but the description says its a warm sweet musk with notes of coconut and vanilla sugar. I'm not a big musk fan but I like coconut and vanilla. I'm guessing the soap smells the same. The lip balm sounds good enough to eat. sweet dried oranges and belgian dark chocolate? yes please! This is the second time they have included a dotting tool in the bag and I think it's the same size.

Verdict: I still enjoy these bags and I now have quite a large RH collection.
