So I've returned from Europe now - I arrived late Tuesday night and to honest, man I've been MISERABLE. Is this some sort of post-travel depression or something? Anybody? Bueller? Nonetheless, I'll try to pick up a bit here. Upon my return, I got my Rainbow Honey order in, which is supposed to, you know, cheer a girl up. I also looked on their Facebook page and WOW, the once small little indie cosmetics company that started out on Etsy had to CLOSE THEIR STORE due to a lack of inventory. Is this not crazy or what? It's good news because it just means that Rainbow Honey is here to stay.
Here's an unboxing of the Limited Edition Mystery Box for Mother's Day. I didn't actually get this for my mother specifically (I know that makes me sound like a bad person but hear me out), but my mum and I share my nail polish collection and cosmetics in general. For example, whenever I get the Sephora annual birthday gift, I always give my mum the things she would use. Here's how the "mystery bag" came - it came in a lovely box, tied with a silver bow!
As you can see, I got the French Lavender variation! I love the Sakura Matsuri scent but honestly, I am SUCH a lavender fiend that I couldn't resist:
Upon opening the box, a card was on top of all the contents:
Here's a transcription of the card:
Sparkling Rose Nail Lacquer (15 mL) - A generous dusting of shimmer and real silver flakes make this dusty rose glisten in the sun!
Mosaic Sky Nail Lacquer (15 mL) - This blend of spring glitters features holographic sky blue squares in a clear shimmery base!
French Lavender Scented Top Coat (5 mL) - Our French Lavender Scented Top Coat will provide you with a glossy finish and additional protection for your nail creations!
French Lavender Perfume (2 mL) - The finest Lavender Essential Oils brightened with Italian Bergamot and deepened with musky florals and Vetiver!
French Lavender Hand Cream (5 oz) - The French Lavender hand cream will moisturize, protect and leave you smelling fab!!
French Lavender Shea Butter Soap (4 oz) - If you love this scent as much as we do, you'll love this handcrafted moisturizing soap!
French Lavender Spa Soak (2 oz) - Refresh tired hands and feet with an aromatic blend of European salts and botanicals!

Here are the contents as packed!
The French lavender eau de parfum rollerball (we might have to play a drinking game each time this post mentions "French Lavender", ha!):
French Lavender top coat! (I can never tire of how pretty these look!)
The salt spa soak (I may use this after a photoshoot in the upcoming months):
A healthy serving of French Lavender hand cream:
The French Lavender shea butter soap, which I might try out tonight:
And lastly but certainly not least - here's the two full sized nail lacquers that came with both editions of the Mother's Day mystery box: Sparkling Rose and Mosaic Sky.
Overall, I would say this is a good bang for your buck mystery bag! I believe I paid $25 USD and seeing that two nail lacquers are typically $10 each, for $5, it came with all that extra stuff! Also, I can never live down the potential of not having a complete Rainbow Honey collection, so there's that too.
What did you end up doing for your mother for Mother's Day? My mom just got a measly long distance phone call from me from Cornwall - haha! But I'll have to find some nice potted flowers for summer soon enough.
