Project Mc2 Science Lab Kits Review

As a mother who is encouraging her daughters to be strong, smart girls, I love Mc2. These girls have got brains and fashion nailed down. With each one of their products, they encourage girls everywhere to be the same. My girly girls loved making their makeup, choosing the colors of their lipstick, the color of their eyeshadow even if it might not be what I would usually choose for colors.

The Mc2  Crayon Makeup Science Kit makeup isn’t necessarily something that you can let your kids do alone. It is recommended for ages 6+; they will need a lot of help (depending on their age) because you are going to be using an oven and the materials are hot. If your child is comfortable using the oven then great! I will also say that I love that the instructions call for using an oven instead of the microwave, as a microwave isn’t the healthiest option, nor the best for even heating.

The makeup is just crayon and coconut oil. Everyday items for most of us. We did need to use a small paring knife to pop the lipstick out of the mold instead of our fingers, so that we didn’t ruin the “look” of the lipstick.

• Lipstick/lip balm mold

• Two lipstick/lip balm cases

• One crayon disc with six colours

• Coconut oil and flavourings NOT included

H2O Nail Science Lab

While I’m not usually one for letting my girls wear makeup outside of the house, they have free range over their nail polish choices. Yes, there was a lot of excitement over the Mc2 Nail Science kit. Getting to design their own look? Fantastic! And Moms can get in on the fun with this kit with some unique nail polish themselves. This one they can do all on their own, again depending on their ages, but my girls loved it! Grab your favorite colors of nail polish and create some fun designs.

This Lab kit. Includes:

• Light up station with built-in nail dryer

• Three stands with nail polish holders

• Three discs with blank acrylic nails to design

  1. Coconut oil! Looks like it has nice ingredients, great gift for someone.

  2. My granddaughters would love this and like the fact that it’s also educational. Just have to watch out with the oven, don’t want anyone to get hurt.

  3. I am sure a lot of people would like this product. But in all frankness, I dislike that they are using make-up as a way to encourage girls to love science. Why do they need to reinforce patriarchal ideals of “femininity” this way while fronting it as science?! Why can’t they just create science kits for girls with bright colours… My niece would hate this! And she loves science (she loves to do kitchen experiments, build rockets and play with programming bots). She also loves to dress up and wear make-up. I have 2 boys, 3 nephews, 1 niece, 1 godson and numerous friends with kids. Anyways, this is just my opinion and I thank you for the product review.

  4. great sets to know about for some upcoming birthday parties!

  5. These kits sound like a lot of fun for girls. What a wonderful gift idea!

  6. My little cousins love this show so I know they’d really like these awesome kits!

  7. My niece would love this. What a great gift for girls.
