QVC’s New Beauty Test Tube Spring/ Summer 2012

Hey guys! So, my first QVC Test tube came on Friday. If you aren’t familiar with the test tube it is a quarterly subscription service that costs $29.95 + 6.95 S&H. QVC gives you the option to have it auto-delivered and if you select this option, you may also choose to skip a month if you aren’t really liking the contents of the tube.

OK so here are the products along with the value:

New Beauty Magazine $10

.5oz Peter Thomas Roth Laser-Free Regenerator $34

Mally Beauty Evercolor Shadow Stick (in Twilight) $25

2oz Philosophy Amazing Grace Shampoo, Bath & Shower Gel $4.25

.5oz Strivectin-SD Intensive Concentrate $19.75

A total value of $145.61!

Tarte LipSurgence Lip Luster (in Adored)

I have to say that the color (Adored) isn’t very pigmented at all. It actually goes on quite sheer which is nice, if you are looking for a light, natural shimmery lip. It has a nice minty taste & smell to it and glides on smoothly. Overall, I am happy with the product however I probably wouldn’t re-purchase in this color.

 

Mally Beauty Evercolor Shadow Stick (in Twilight)

What it claims: Glides on smoothly and allows up to 30 seconds to blend color before it stays put and will last until you want it off. What it does: Exactly that! The first time I had swatched this (for the un-revealing video I did on YouTube) I blended it out and it was very easy to work with. The second time, I only wanted to show what the color was like on it’s own so I didn’t touch it after. When I attempted to remove the swatch from my hand, it wouldn’t budge. I had to use a bit of makeup remover on a Q-tip in order to remove it. Should more colors become available, I might purchase another one of these.

Philosophy Amazing Grace Shampoo, Bath & Shower Gel

I just can’t get enough of this scent. I don’t think it smells like any one thing in particular it’s just a nice, airy, clean scent. I have totally shunned my other body washes since getting this one, I just love how amazingly fresh my skin feels after using it.

And that is all I’ve used as of yet. I do plan on testing out the StriVectin on my belly to see if it truely helps in removing stretch marks, so if any one is interested I can do a follow up for that. If you have any questions, please comment below! Thanks for reading 🙂
