Bondi – Strawberry Fields

The formula is smooth, and I like the way the brush handles. This is also one of the more unique colors I own where it’s not really red, coral or orange but some combination thereof. However, Bondi is not a company I would buy from again – please google and read about Bondi’s subscription service scam. Nailtini – Mai Tai has been suggested to be a worthy dupe, although not as “dusty” as Strawberry Fields.

My Two Cents
This is Bondi’s first month of subscription boxes. Overall, I think they did a good job. ¬†However, the beauty extras left a lot to be desired for me. The ones I received are all for dry skin, and I have oily skin, so I can’t really use them. And I felt the values were completely off all around. I think everyone should have gotten I’m Vers as the extra in their first box; those that ordered additional boxes could have gotten an extra color. All the samples we actually received could have been tossed in over the next few months, one at a time and we all would have squealed about this extra extra.

Edited to add:
This was actually the only time Bondi sent out products – the following 2 months, the subscription service claimed to be victims of bad luck where initially the new colors were delayed, then supposedly mailed out to subscribers – apparently the post office is so incompetent, they lost thousands of boxes of nail polish. Refunds were promised, but not delivered. I would not recommend doing business with Bondi.
