Soooo.. I just received an email that my 4th quarter QVC New Beauty Test Tube has shipped, when I realized I totally forgot to post my 3rd quarter tube. Blogger of the year!!!
What my 3rd quarter tube included:
- Ojon Damage Reverse Conditioner
- Mally High Shine Liquid Lip Color
- Philosophy love sweet love 3-in-1 gel
- Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer
- Laura Geller Waterproof Eye Spackle
- Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil
- Algenist Firming Cream
- Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Butter
- NEW BEAUTY magazine
Not pictured: The Bliss Body Butter. I had taken it out of the tube when I was at work and forgot to put it back in. You all know what bliss lotions look like anyways right? Blue with white type… done! ;)
I was mostly pleased with the selection this quarter. I LOVE all the Mally Liquid Lip Shines, it’s so pigmented and gorgeous.
The Josie Maran Argan Oil is an absolute staple in my skincare routine (has been for about a year now) and it’s done wonders for my acne-prone skin. It’s very pricey so I loved getting a nicely sized bottle in my Test Tube. If you’re unsure how to use it, try mixing a dropper with your regular night time moisturizer, and apply the oil directly to the eye area and any dry spots. You’ll be amazed at the improvement.
The Philospophy shower gel was a ‘meh’ sample. It seems like they always throw in one of these. I’ve never been a huge Philosophy fan because of how they market and price their products.
Algenist is a good brand, but firming cream isn’t something I’m in dire need of at 27.
The Laura Geller Waterproof Eye Spackle I got from a previous QVC TSV, so I will probably gift this one. It’s a very effective product and doubles as a concealer.
I like the Smashbox primer because it’s a good size sample and this primer is expensive as all hell, but I feel like the original Photo Finish is better suited for dry or mature skin. I prefer Photo Finish Light for my oily skin.
Ojon makes some great stuff, and I really liked this conditioner. It smells lovely and made my hair so soft and touchable.
If you want in on the 4th quarter tube, you can pick it up from QVC.com.
