I received my first New Beauty Test Tube Kit from QVC. I’ve seen it offered many times, but never took the plunge. I really liked this kit. The beauty items are great (more on that later) and the price wasn’t bad for what you got. The cost is $29.96 + $6.72 for shipping and handling. Not bad considering the magazine is $9.99 by itself.
I received 9 products:
- 2-fl oz bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash
- 0.08-fl oz Doll 10 Beauty Luxe Lip Gloss
- 0.08-oz Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy
- 0.0025-oz IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil
- 0.5-fl oz Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment
- 1-fl oz philosophy amazing grace shampoo, bath, and shower gel
- 0.06-oz Mally Beauty Evercolor Shadow Stick
- 1.7-oz PHYTO Phytodefrisant Straightening Balm
- NewBeauty Magazine
Overall I was really impressed with the Test Tube and hope to get another one. I believe they are offered three times a year.
Here on my thoughts on each product –
Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash – This cleanser smells so good. It’s a very light fruity-floral scent. I think it smells like fresh laundry soap. It’s not too strong. Smells clean. It says it exfoliates and cleanses. I do love how it takes my makeup off and I generally use it at night. I’m not so sure about the exfoliates part, but I’ve only been using it for a week.
Doll 10 Luxe Lip Gloss in Blush – I would love to give an opinion on this, but like many people that got this box, I couldn’t get it open. I did send it back and hoping for a replacement.
Fresh Mini Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy – I’m a huge fan of the Fresh Sugar Lip line. I have at least 3 tubes of the color Rose. I wear them all the time. I love that they give a touch of color and moisturize. This one is even more moisturizing and I love to put it on at night.
IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil – This might be my least favorite item in the tube. They say it’s universal and works for all brow colors, but it is a very dark brown. I have very dark brows and I love a very defined eyebrow, but this might be too much. I’m going to keep working on it and see if it gets better.
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment – I’ve only tried this twice, but wasn’t impressed either time. It could be that I’m not using enough product to get a good coverage of it. And, you need to be sure and clean your face first then use the exfoliate.
Philosophy Amazing Grace Shower Gel – I love their Amazing Grace products so I was excited to get a small bottle of this gel so I can travel with it. I’m very sensitive to perfumes so this gel is perfect for me.
Mally Beauty Evercolor Shadow Stick in Dusk – I love Mally shadow sticks and this is a perfect champagne color. These are long lasting, easy to apply and blend. These are great for putting in your purse because you can use these as an eye shadow and as an eyeliner.
Phyto Phytodefrisant Botanical Straightening Balm- This is a product that you put on wet hair right before you dry your hair. It’s a heat activated balm that helps to create a sleek blow-dry and keeping your hair hydrated while drying. I wash my hair in the evenings so I don’t have to completely blow dry it. I found this to be very effective and wasn’t too hydrating for my oily hair.
New Beauty Magazine – I really liked this magazine. It focused more on skin care than makeup, but I found it very entertaining and informational. Besides, your makeup won’t look good if you don’t take care of your skin.
I really enjoyed this Test Tube and hope to get another one soon. Have you ever bought one? What did you think of it. Leave me a comment and tell me your thoughts.
