It's always a good day when I come home to find a pink box on my doorstep... containing the QVC New Beauty Test Tube! All the products come packed into the tube- and there's also a little magazine with all the info you could need on the various products- plus the latest issue of New Beauty magazine!
These come every couple of months (I'm pretty sure... sometimes I lose track of time!), and I've ordered them on autodelivery- so I don't have to place a special order each time. For around 30 bucks you get to try a bunch of cool products, and the makeup products included are pretty much always full size! Other products are pretty generous as well. This one must be so new it's not on the website yet, but the last Test Tube is if you want to check it out. I'll shoot out a tweet or Facebook update when I notice that this one is available online. I should probably also point out- I pay for these & am not affiliated with QVC or the various brands featured in the Test Tube. I also did a video on it back in May 2011.
I'd also like to say- I have discovered SO MANY favorite things through the Test Tube over the past year or so. I've heard about Birch Box, and I've tried Glossy Box. But I must say, the Test Tube seems to offer lots of products- and so many things that turn out to be awesome. If it wasn't for the Test Tube, I might not have found out about some things that are now major favorites, such as: Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads, Philosophy Inner Grace, Philosophy Field of Flowers, Wen Cleansing Conditioner, and Fresh Sugar Lip Balm... and then I've also gotten a number of other great products I already knew I loved like tarte Lipsurgence, Mally Evercolor Shadow Sticks, Laura Geller baked eyeshadow, and Josie Maran Argan Oil.
Here's what came in the newest Test Tube!
-Living Proof Full Thickening Mousse (new to me)
-Wen Cleansing Conditioner in Winter Vanilla Mint (love this!)
-Mally Evercolor Automatic Eyeliner in Onyx (love this!)
-Smileactives Tooth Whitening Pen (new to me)
-Perfect Formula Strong Nail System Daily Moisture (new to me)
-Philosophy Full of Promise Restoring Cream (new to me)
-Perricone MD High Potency Eye Treatment (new to me)
-Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Sparkplug (new to me)
Each product has its own page in the Test Tube booklet. I think that's super helpful, especially with the skincare products so you know when to apply various serums or creams that might come in the kit. You can also learn about the claims and what you can expect the products to do.
And as I mentioned- New Beauty Magazine! You might want to look closely at page 30 of the issue that comes with this Test Tube... just sayin! :)
- Just so you know- I posted another Try This, Not That video! It's all about Foundations.
- This morning my alarm woke me from a nightmare. It was my wedding day, nothing was ready, and my mom was freaking out.
- I got to interview an 82-year-old dance instructor yesterday, and then line danced with the group. All seemed right with the world in that moment!
- Tyler is competing in something called the "Tough Mudder" this weekend. Watched YouTube videos on it yesterday... GOOD LORD. Seems like torture to me!
Then I googled the following question: "Has anyone died during the tough mudder?"
Apparently nobody has, but I'm still worried.
