I managed to squeeze both makeup and nails in one post, so this is like a double review! Today I’m sharing swatches and thoughts on RickyColor Coordinating Kit in Unpaid Intern [fun name, isn’t it?].

The kit contains four products: iPhone5 Case with “Unpaid Intern” color print, RickyColor nail polish in “Unpaid Intern”, RickyColor Topcoat nail treatment, and RickyColor City Stick in “Unpaid Intern”.

The iPhone Case is made with bendable plastic, it’s the kind of material and quality that you’d find at souvenir shops; I saw similar cases custom made with people’s family photos or pets on them. I’m guessing if someone was a huge fan of this particular color, it would be a fun idea to match their phone case with nail polish.

Unpaid Intern polish color is part of RickyColor in-house nail polish lineup, which I reviewed a couple weeks ago. The formula is opaque after two coats, and goes on smoothly and evenly [as you can see in the swatch above]. I topped it with RickyColor Topcoat nail treatment, which gave my nails a nice glossy finish. This duo lasted four days on my nails before the polish started chipping.

Last but not least, the kit contained Unpaid Intern RickyColor City Stick, which can be described as a frosted light pink. The color goes on evenly, without accentuating lip lines, and the formula seems fairly pigmented. The twist up stick itself was easy to use even without the mirror, and I found that very convenient. The color lasted six hours on my lips before showing signs of fading, and that’s after several cups of tea and a few light snacks. I was afraid that frosted pink might make me look too 70’s, but I think I can actually make it work! What do you think?
P.S.: The lipstick contains mineral oil, I thought I’d mention that in case some of you avoid this particular ingredient in your cosmetics.

This is a great idea for a company to make coordinating kits like this one, because I know a LOT of people who would love to have matching nails, makeup and phone cases with their favorite colors. All of the products in the kit performed well, and lived up
