QVC New Beauty Test Tube and Same Love

I was finally able to film for you guys.  I received my New Beauty Test Tube in the mail and decided to unbox it for you guys.  If you don’t know what it is, it’s a sample (with some full-size items) program.  It’s like Birchbox and GlossyBox, but you can return it if you aren’t happy.  It has about eight items and comes with New Beauty magazine that retails for $9.99.  The test tube shipment itself costs about $30.  I consider it to be a pretty good deal.

My son makes a fun appearance in this video too :)

  • Mally Evercolor Automatic Eyeliner (FULL SIZE) – I will definitely repurchase this.  This eyeliner is the only one I have found to last all day and not travel…even in the waterline!  It hasn’t irritated my eyes all day either.  My eyes are always red at the end of the day with normal eyeliner in my waterline but not this one.  If there is one product I say to buy it’s this one.  It applies smooth like a liquid, but with easier use.  Get it. 
  • Wen – I swear I just don’t get it.  I feel like a hair mask once a day will make it just as soft.  I just think it makes my hair greasy on the roots.  I’m probably using it wrong.
  • Dr. Perricone MD High Potency Eye Treatment – it claims to firm eyes, reduce appearance of wrinkles, and moisturize your eyes.  If I like it I’ll add it to my “October Favorites” video
  • Philosophy Full of Promise Dual Action Restoring Cream – I’m excited to try this moisturizer.  I haven’t found a Philosophy product I didn’t like.  
  • Living Proof Full Thickening Mousse – I’ve heard great things about this product.  It is supposed to add volume to your hair without the sticky residue.
  • bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss – It’s a great everyday color, but I don’t think I will repurchase it.  There are too many other lipglosses I like more.
  • Smileactives Tooth Whitening Pen –  The pen is supposed to last 3 weeks, and Smileactives claims the average whitening in 3 weeks is 5 shades.  Saves me from buying Whitestrips!
  • Perfect Formula Strong Nail System Daily Moisture – Lord knows my cuticles need all the help they can get this time of year.
If you guys are wondering what song is in my video it’s “Same Love” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.  If you haven’t heard of Macklemore yet you better catch up.  His album is the #1 album on iTunes.  Did I mention he is an independent hip-hop artist?!  How amazing is that?!  His album is beating Jay-Z, Mumford and Sons, Justin Bieber….everyone.  He comes from my city, Seattle, and went to college in my hometown of Olympia.  
The song, “Same Love”, is one of the most well done songs and videos I have ever seen or heard.  The lyrics are so powerful, they brought me to tears.  Everyone deserves to be loved.  PLEASE watch this video.  

What are you waiting for?  Go download Macklemore’s album and get familiar.
