New Beauty Test Tube! Q3: Summer 2012

My Test Tube has finally arrived! This bright pink box, delivered quarterly, never disappoints!

Always an eye feast! Crazy anticipation!


The goods still in their packaging

The goods minus the boxes.

A page from the "program" included each quarter.

Mally’s page from the “program” included each quarter. All the colors look good!

Each box comes with a “program” to explain each product, how to use, where to buy. I love reading up on the products!

Lumene Time Freeze Firming Night Cream | W/ ARCTIC HEATHER .5 fl oz:
this cute little pot of cream is created by a company founded in Finland. I feel luxurious when I use products like this on my hands and chest. My face is too picky and sensitive!

Neutrogena® Rapid Wrinkle Repair Serum | full size – 1 fl. oz. – $20: I was happy to see this in the tube! I am a sucker for anything you can use under your eyes. This multi-tasker is also a skin-brightener with retinol. It’s very lightweight, says the left hand I tried it on!

Feels good on the hand!

Neutrogena® Brightening Eye Perfector | LIGHT – full size – .17 oz.- $14

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector (spf 25)

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector (spf 25) (pen)| ORCHID – full size – .12 oz – $20

Mally High Shine Liquid Lipstick (pen) | full size – $20. I am always happy to get a Mally product! I really like this soft color and the shine is awesome. I would buy another, for sure!

Quick swabs of Mally Liquid Lipstik in ORCHID and Neutrogena Brightening Eye Perfector.

It’s a 10® Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin | 2 fl. oz.: looking forward to using this tonight! After washing, towel dry and spray product all over hair and comb through. Frizz elimination and shine booster? Sign me up!

Hydroxatone® InstantEffect 90 Second Wrinkle Reducer | 15 PACKETS – each .02 oz each: Initially I didn’t realize this was also for under your eyes. A dramatic, temporary, transformation is supposed to occur after using this! Temporarily reduces the appearance of crows feet, fine lines, wrinkles, and *gasp*, even under-eye bags. Where was this on the 5th of July when I had to drag myself out of bed and be at work at 7:3o!

Olay® Pro-X Clear Complexion Renewing Lotion | STEP 3 hydrate + renew .24 fl. oz.: Olay has been marketing the heck out of this line. What’s a girl to do with so many new samples to try! Ginger root and vitamins fade skin discolorations and prevent new breakouts from happening.

Jane Iredale Tantasia | .25 oz.: This was oddly not featured in the book that is sent each quarter. It feels like an afterthought. I did swatch it though. It has an orange type smell. YUM!

Jane Iredale TANTASTIC!

Jane Iredale TANTASTIC! I didn’t rub it in too much so you could see the potential!

AHAVA Essential Day Moisturizer normal to dry | .51 fl. oz.: I think AHAVA takes the team player award for including their products in every single beauty subscription you can imagine! Product 2 of 4 that was oddly not featured in the book that is sent each quarter.

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer | .25 fl. oz.: Most people have tried this by now. Most people like it. I’m like most people in this case! Product 3 of 4 that was oddly not featured in the book that is sent each quarter.

Lash Food Eyelash Conditioner | .05 fl. oz.: At first my thoughts were why the hell would I need an eyelash conditioner? Seconds later I still had the same question. Instructions and a reason why I would want to race to try this should have been included in the program! This was  product 4 of 4 oddly not featured in the book that is sent each quarter.

NewBeauty magazine | Summer/Fall 2012 $9.95 an issue

Three SpaLook promo codes | 50 off 200, 25 off 125, 10 off 60. Nothing to jump out of bed for, but if you are a novice at finding coupon codes, or are not interested in searching for them, you may love these.

I LOVE this program. The quarterly charge Price: $29.95 + $8.95 shipping.  How can you go wrong with this? You even get a magazine!

SIDE NOTE: QVC also sells New Beauty Test Tube quarterly. It’s a little bit different, but some products are the same, and obviously include popular products QVC sells. The last one included: Tarte LipSurgence (retails for $24); StriVectin-SD Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks and Wrinkles (½ oz); St. Tropez Gradual Tan Everyday Body Moisturizer (2 oz); Philosophy Amazing Grace 3 in 1 (2 oz); WEN Cleansing Conditioner (6 oz); Peter Thomas Roth Laser-Free Moisturizing Gel-Cream (½ oz); Mally Evercolor Shadow Stick (retails at $25); Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash (2 oz): New Beauty Magazine!

What do you think? Love the Test Tube or leave it?

Eye Feast Inspiration

Create your own eye feast- let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.

Feast, and your halls are crowded; fast, and the world goes by.

Life is a feast. DIG IN!

Fools make feasts, wise men eat them.

He that is of a merry heart has a continual feast.
