QVC New Beauty Test Tube Winter 2013

I finally bit the bullet and re-subscribed to the QVC Test Tube. It’s such an amazing service with such great products to try! This quarter’s tube is no exception.

Here’s the whole lot. Nothing to sneeze at, right?

Mally High-Shinw Gloss in Mally’s Baby. This is not my favorite brand of lip color, but I do really like the look of the gloss. This one is very rosy and natural looking and will be perfect for a lot of my favorite makeup looks. The only reason I don’t really like these Mally glosses is I find myself having to reapply incessantly.  (In other words, not long lasting at all.)

Tarte emphasEYESy Eyeliner  in purple. This color looks gorgeous. I can’t wait to try it tomorrow morning!

Ole Henrickson Truth Creme. This is your basic face cream. They have included this brand a number of times. I’m not super impressed by it and will stick with spending money on Cetaphil, but it’s perfect as a backup or for traveling! 

Nick Chavez Conditioner. I recently gave up the ghost and trying to get Wen to work for me, so I’m super excited to try this conditioner! Plus, it smells aweeeesome. If the scent lasts for a few hours, I won’t even need perfume!

Philosophy Miracle Worker cleanser and mask. This is one of my favorite brands of all time. All of their stuff really seems to do what it says on the bottle. I have been breaking out a little lately and this one looks to promise clearer skin! Woohoo!

 
Julep Nail Color in Alicia.  The picture doesn’t do it justice. This is more of a peachy color than the picture shows. This is a dupe for me so I will stash it away and some lucky girl will receive it as a gift. :)

Bliss blood orange hand cream. Another brand that I absolutely love! As expected, this smells great. Almost like you just peeled a fresh orange and didn’t wash your hands!

Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm. I can always use more eye cream!

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser. This is just the classic foil packet of sample. Test Tube will typically throw some of these in.

And, of course, the magazine. Which I actually hate! Why? Because it has a huge focus on cosmetic surgery! What?! I know! You’re surprised, too! You’d think a company that sounds like they promote natural beauty with the name ‘New Beauty’ that they would promote…natural beauty. Sometimes I’ll flip through this to look at the pictures but I typically just throw it in the recycling because it’s all about plastic surgery. I haven’t even cracked this quarter’s issue, but I guarantee you that cover story on “Anti-Aging Secrets” is about botox, face-lifts, and skin tucks. No thanks!

Overall, I love Test Tube. Look at all the fun products I got today!!
