Ruby Wing Nail Polish

US Weekly Birchbox

Birchbox collaborated with US Weekly’s beauty director Gwen Flamberg, to curate a special edition box just in time for award season!  The February Birchbox has been dubbed the “Step & Repeat” (btw, at the age of 38, I JUST learned what this was from my friend Melissa) box and included everything you need to need to get red carpet ready! Here’s what I got in my box:

Beauty Protector Protect & Oil: This nourishing formula uses star ingredient argan oil to protect, strengthen, and add a pretty gloss to strands—all without heaviness. Armed with UV and heat protection, it stands up to two of our favorite past times: heat styling and spending hours in the sun. The paraben-free formula is also cruelty-free

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner: This paraben-free lotion uses tea tree and flaxseed extract to minimize the appearance of pores while microspheres absorb excess oil.

Ruby Wing Color Changing Nail Polish in Kitten Heels: Formulated with SolarActive® Technology, each polish transitions from one shade to another as soon as you step out into the sunlight and come into contact with UV rays. Walk back indoors, and your nails will return to the original color. Each Ruby Wing polish is non-toxic, vegan, and environmentally safe. My thoughts: This is the only product I’ve tried so far but I LOVED both colors. The color changes in less than 15 seconds once outside and my topcoat did not interfere with the color changing technology!

Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara: This paraben-free mascara adds both fullness and length. Olive oil conditions, while natural and synthetic waxes coat lashes without smudging or causing pesky little flakes to accumulate beneath your eyes.

EXTRA: 32 Oral Care Effervescent Breath Crystals w/ IsoVoxy: Unlike gum and breath mints, which only mask bad breath, these teeth-cleaning crystals pack zinc and IsoVoxy to kill odor-causing bacteria. Once dissolved, they leave a fresh scent courtesy of natural peppermint flavors.

I haven’t had a chance to try everything yet but I wanted to share ASAP for anyone who may want to order  the Feb “Step & Repeat” box. Birchbox has extended the deadline to order to Feb 23rd!  To learn more about Birchbox or to join, click here.

    That color changing polish is so fun – love the idea! Did it wear similar to other polishes in terms of how long it lasted without chips? My daughter is all of a sudden really into painting her nails and she would love this!! 🙂

      I would have DIED to have this as a tween! I did my usual base/top coat but I’m only on day 2. Still looks fab! You should def get it for her.
