Hey y’all! Today I have a full swatch and review of the “What’s This? What’s This” Collab box from Lucky 13 Lacquer, Heptatonics, Geek Fire Labs, and Nail Jewelry Bling!  It will retail for $40 with free shipping and I’ll show you all the goodies included. I was sent me box for review.

Restless by Heptatonics.

First up is the Restless perfume from Heptatonics! The scent is described as a “relaxing blend of bergamot, cypress, magnolia, and lavender with hints of ylang ylang, vetiver, and patchouli.” This scent is very earthy and maybe a little manly (due to the patchouli tones I think!) and also has a pretty strong scent. I do love the packaging, the little card is so detailed and such a sweet detail. Restless has a spray pump applicator and it is a nice size.

Lip balms by Geek Fire Labs

Next are the lip balms by Geek Fire labs in both Pumpkin Spice and Sally’s Spell flavors. I am incredibly impressed by these products! The packaging is super nice and very professional, they each came separately shrink wrapped. The balms themselves have really awesome and beneficial oils in them including: Soybean oil,sunflower oil, beeswax, hemp oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, vitamin E, aloe vera, and flavor oil. I felt really good about using this product and wouldn’t hesitate to let my little ones try them.They were both clear unpigmented balms and absorbed into the skin so well! Pumpkin Spice has some really nice cinnamon tones to it but wasn’t overpowering while Sally’s Spell had a bit of a bubble gum type scent.

Matte topcoat and polish from Lucky 13 Lacquer

Next up are the polish and matte topcoat from Lucky 13 Lacquer! The polish is named “Deadly Nightshade” and is described as a “royal purple with purple and golden shimmer.” This polish is a box exclusive and had a nice 2 coat formula! Deadly Nightshade is a little bit of a thinner polish so I recommend doing thinner coats, the purple is a nice dark shade and the flakes of gold and purple just shimmer against that base.

Fog Juice is the special name for the We’re All Matte Here matte topcoat specially for this box. This matte topcoat y’all, I’m telling you it’s amazing! I struggle a bit with matte topcoats due to the little white speckles they sometimes leave behind or fogginess on the nail. Fog Juice however goes on perfect! It dries to a beautiful velvet matte and really brings out all of the flakes in Deadly Nightshade. 10 out of 10 would recommend.

Nightmare Before Christmas nail vinyls from Nail Jewelry Bling

Lastly today I have the Nightmare Before Christmas nail vinyls from Nail Jewelry Bling! I’ll admit I’m not super proficient at vinyls, I’ve never been on those girls that can pull them off perfectly. I love that these also give you an option of using the negative space as decals!  Each box will come with 2 sheets of the same images.

  1. The decals are amazing but I’m totally into the holidays and done with Halloween (although this could totally be a Christmas movie too)
