My spring 2012 New Beauty test tube of samples from QVC is here! I’m on the auto delivery plan and this is my third test tube out of six total shipments. I previously posted what I got in my first New Beauty test tube and the fall New Beauty test tube.
I love these QVC New Beauty Test Tubes because they are a great value. You usually get a few full size products along with deluxe size samples. The samples in the test tubes are way bigger that the average samples you get with Birchbox.
At only $29.96 plus shipping you get 9 beauty and makeup products to try plus that month’s issue of the New Beauty magazine. That averages out to only $3.33 per item, not including the magazine!
Here’s what I got:
Tarte emphasEyes Aqua Gel Eyeliner in Navy (full size)
Mally Volumizing Mascara (full size)
Ole Henriksen Truth Serum (0.5 oz)
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate (0.5 oz)
Philosophy Field of Flowers – shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath (1 oz)
Nick Chavez Yucca Root Shampooing Cream (2 oz)
Calista Tools Achieve 10 Hair Styling Cream (2 oz)
Philosophy Field of Flowers Body lotion (1 oz)
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Skin Cream (2 oz)
New Beauty Magazine
First off, the two full size products are amazing! I’m a huge Tarte fan and I’ve been wanting to try the emphasEyes Aqua Gel eyeliners. They’re supposed to be long wearing like gel eyeliners and the navy color is beautiful! It’s a dark navy color with tint bright blue sparkles. I can’t wait to test it out and write a full review about it.
Mally volumizing mascara is awesome! I already own a tube and love it. It gives nice volume and amazing length. Yeah for me, now I have a backup tube!
I am also currently using the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum. I bought it sometime before Christmas to replace my empty bottle of Origins Plantscription serum. So far I like it. It has a gel like consistency that smooths out nicely and smells like citrus.
I’m super excited to try the ExfoliKate. I’ve been tempted to buy this before but wasn’t sure how my sensitive skin would react to it. Not too crazy about the medicinal scent though.
As for the rest of the items, they all smell really nice and I’m excited to try them out. The Philosophy Field of Flowers is surprisingly not overwhelming. I expected a strong floral scent but it’s actually soft and light.
So what do you think? In your opinion, is the New Beauty Test Tube worth purchasing? It is still available to purchase on QVC.com.
