As you can probably guess from my last post I love beauty subscriptions. I also have a sick habit of having QVC and HSN playing in the background of my house. QVC was talking about a beauty deal and you know my ears perked! I'm going to be 100% honest with you guys. This blows the April MyGlam and Birchbox out of the water. It isn't monthly or as cheap, but it dominates. The size of each product is substantial. This series of seven New Beauty Test Tube's runs till October 2013 at about $29 a pop. Every tube includes New Beauty magazine which sells for almost ten bucks. Get ready to see what you get for this steal of a deal!
If you haven't heard of St. Tropez Gradual Tanner you may have been living under a rock. It is a favorite of celebrities and beauty editors. You apply the tanner daily to gradually build up to a healthy bronze color. I always recommend exfoliating before using any self-tanning products. Since this builds your tan over time don't worry about going over a spot twice or not enough. It won't be too noticeable if it happens once.
Tate LipSurgence Lip Luster delivers healthier lips with their vitamin and antioxidant rich formula. Lips will beautifully colored while still staying soft and hydrated. The natural peppermint in lip luster gives a refreshing burst of flavor with ever application. One of my favorite things about this product is it layers beautifully. It can be as sheer as you want, or if you want a punch of color you can always layer more for a deeper shade. They have a nice gloss to them so I personally wouldn't add a gloss over it.
I received Wen Cleaning Conditioner in a previous MyGlam bag but it was only 2 ounces in a tube. QVC's test tube gives you a 6 oz. bottle with a pump to get the perfect amount every time. Wen takes a little to get use to since it doesn't lather, a.k.a. make bubbles, but that's a good thing. There are no sulfates to strip your hair or color from the nutrients it needs. Wen replaces shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in conditioner. I love this product and it smells delish!
Peter Thomas Roth Laser-Free Moisturizing Gel-Cream is a powerful, deeply nourishing, high-tech pink gel cream that dramatically helps to improve the appearance of your skin's texture. It richly hydrates and helps to replenish moisture and essential nutrients to your skin. Infused with dragon's blood, a red resin drawn from the Amazon's Croton Lechleri tree, it refreshes prematurely aged skin and diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I'm all about keeping my skin looking great!
I've been interested in trying Bliss Fabulous Face Wash. I'm a loyal Philosophy Purity user who has been afraid to stray. Unlike Purity, this product can not be used around your eyes because it gently exfoliates and cleans your skin at the same time. It is appropriate for all skin types, and has a subtle fruity-floral scent. It's gonna take a lot for me to leave my Purity but I'll give it a try!
Amazing Grace Shampoo, Bath and Shower Gel by Philosophy has a serious cult following. People are loyal to this product and brand. This 3-in-1 formula builds into a creamy, moisturizing lather that can be used from head to toe. This lightly scented formula is milk-based to soften skin and hair while still leaving your skin silky with a feminine scent.
The last product is one I have been itching to try. As with all Mally products, the Evercolor Shadow Stick in Twilight claims to be bulletproof. The product stays on until you want to take it off. I swabbed some on my hand and rubbed vigorously. Guess what happened? No smudges. It stayed perfectly in place! I love how easily it glides on without migrating or wearing off. You can blend or smooth the product for the first 30 seconds after you apply. After that it will stay perfectly in place. The stick is so easy to use as an eyeliner, shadow, or layered for a smoky look. I think I may have found my new go-to for a 5 minutes face.
I adore all the products in here and you will too! If for any reason you don't like whatever is in your Test Tube, send it to back to QVC within 30 days and you will get your money back! Risk-free and beautiful? Love it!
