Many a beauty junkie knows the benefits of the well curated beauty test tube. The idea of being able to try a number of deluxe and travel size beauty samples for a nominal cost is very appealing. One of my personal faves is the NewBeauty Test Tubes available through QVC. Here I know I'm not only getting the sample goodies and the fantastic NewBeauty magazine (a coveted treasure chest on all things beauty), but also the convenience of product availability through QVC. With this often comes multiple payment options (easy pay, value pay ... what have you) and the security of knowing the item will be refunded if it doesn't work out and is returned.
The only downside, as I've experienced it, is keeping the sample options fresh .... and by fresh I mean unique and diverse. Inevitably, we're going to find a WEN Conditioning Cleanser, a Mally product, and somebody's lipgloss (tarte, Mally, etc) in the tube. Now for me, this is ok as I happen to use WEN conditioning cleansers exclusively on my hair, have found Mally items to be high quality and effective and am generally willing to add another lipgloss to my stash, but one should be prepared if those items don't appeal. And the small sizes shouldn't turn folks away, there is a lot of product in those tubes and bottles.
I'm loving the picks for the newest QVC NewBeauty Test Tube:
With the exception of the bareMinerals lipgloss (just don't like their products), I think I'll use each one. I am particularly psyched about the Living Proof Thickening Mousse ... love this brand and their styling creams already.
The NewBeauty Test Tube for QVC is currently available for $29.96 with the option of 2 easy payments of $14.98. Don't miss out!
