Mc2 in simple terms means: energy equals mass times the speed of light squared.On the most basic level, the equation says that energy and mass (matter) are interchangeable; they are different forms of the same thing.

What we experimented with
Experiment one – Easy process – putting lip gloss liquid into the lip gloss that looks like a pen. So, lip gloss pen. No faults to it as such, was nice smelling, slightly messy but isn’t that the whole point of craft? Also looks super cute.
“It was really nice smelling and soothing to put on,” Eva-Beatrix said.
Experiment two – We did DIY nail polish – my daughter enjoyed being able to make this herself by moving the gels and mixing the colours then putting into the tube disguised as a permanent marker. The nail varnish itself could’ve been darker or last longer, however was a pretty glittery shimmer and she enjoyed doing this activity as the ingredients were readily available in the box.
“It was really easy to make, really liked it,” Eva-Beatrix said.
Experiment three – we made body glitter with things that were easily accessible in the house (ok so we didn’t actually use proper cosmetic glitter it was ordinary but actually still worked) was handy just being able to use household items. I like the little box provided it’s so adorable!
“It was very glittery,” Eva-Beatrix said.
Experiment four – this was the highlighter or mascara which was simple to do and again I just found items we had in the house which was hair gel and eye shadow (it was recommended bright colours but we just used pink to trial)
“It didn’t work well but I still like it,” Eva-Beatrix said.
Experiment five – slightly more difficult for my eldest to do as involved heating the colour wheel to add to the tray inside the bag. The colour wheel daughter prefered it more as a lipstick as was more sticky than an eyeshadow and her brother liked it to colour his face! I like how the back of the colour wheel has the hexagon patterns on it which is genetic coding.
“It was alright, would’ve prefered more colours,” Eva-Beatrix said.
Experiment six – Technically not an experiment, however, still cool – it even has a holder for your smartphone – use as a mirror, take selfies, watch tutorials… or make your own!
“Very excited it can be a phone stand,” Eva-Beatrix said.
“I prefer this bag to the Spy kit because it had more things in it that I could do without help” Eva-Beatrix said. Previously reviewed the Project Mc2 Ultimate Spy Bag!
Some children’s skin can be super sensitive, which is why it is a good thing that my children had no reactions and can be washed with water and mild soap. I can’t find the ingredients to the crayon, lipgloss or nail varnish to add here for anyone but my children didn’t react and neither did I.
There’s also the fact it offers a certain role play – so being a scientist with makeup (and yes I know some may find the idea of makeup just for girls arbitrary) so there’s using imagination too. I liked this bag as it was very sturdy, easy to open and was just overall very cute with very clever designs in regards to including science.
Role play is an extremely social act and we participated in play together – all walls of reality are broken in imaginary and role play as children pretend to be something or someone different from themselves.
There was both structured and unstructured play –
- Structured play has a predetermined set and desired outcome so with this the parent/carer set up a the experiment for the child to play, such as setting up a the colour wheel and the child then choose which bit the colour goes into and then work through problems that arise.
- Unstructured play is where children have the freedom to choose their own plan scenarios and often create their own sets based on what is available to them, for example, my daughter had free reign on what to do with the experiments after and how to play with the bag.
Products looked like the ones in the adverts and photos online.
We were sent this for purpose to review but all thoughts and daughters thoughts are her own and my own.
