NewBeauty Test Tube

My awesome mom was watching QVC and saw the NewBeauty test tube and ordered it for me!! This is the first one I have received and I am very happy with it. It comes in a pretty pink box. When I opened it I found a test tube, QVC booklet and an issue of NewBeauty magazine.

Now time to see what's in that test tube!

Awesome! Very fun. First up there is a Mally eyeshadow stick, in Twilight. This is full size.

Definitely will use that. Up next, is a full size Tarte LipSurgence natural lip lustre in Fever. I rarely wear red on my lips but this might be sheer enough that I can play it off. I have some of these that I purchased on my own and I do like them.

Next up there is a Peter Thomas Roth Laser-free Regenerator. Size is .5 oz. I have never used any PTR products so I look forward to trying this one.

The next thing I pulled out of the tube was a Philosophy 3-in-1 in Amazing Grace. Size is 2 oz. I do like the smell of AG so this will be a good one. It's a travel size so I might throw it in the gym bag.

After this I found a Wen cleansing conditioner in Lavander. This is the one I am most excited about. Size is 4 oz. Looks like it's big enough to really try this stuff out. I probably wouldn't have chosen this scent, but I am still looking forward to using it. I have been wanting to try this stuff for a long time!

From most excited to least excited, the next item I pulled out was a St. Tropez Everyday Body Moisturizer, gradual tanner, in Medium-Dark. 2.5 oz. This might be too dark for me, since I am starting from very pale. I might just use this on my legs to keep some color on them. It does smell really good though! I wish it was just a regular body moisturizer.

StriVectin-SD, .5 oz. I haven't used this before but I had a co-worker who swore by it. I am interested to see if it makes any difference with the fine lines on my face.

And last but not least, there is a Bliss fabulous foaming face wash, 2 oz. I haven't used any Bliss products before but I always find myself looking at them at Sephora, so this is another one I am excited to try.

I am so happy with this beauty test tube!! How fun is this? I think my mom has me signed up to get like 7 more and I think they come every 3 months. I can't wait for the next one!

NOTD - Nicole by O.P.I - "Nothing Kim-pares to Blue"

Ugh. I hate that I like so many of these Kardashian colors!! I don't want to support these people in any way. Why is Nicole always doing this to me. First it was Justin Bieber, now the Kardashians. I don't even want to know who is next.

Nothing Kim-pares to Blue is my favorite light blue shimmery polish I have. I have others by Milani, essence, Revlon, and Sinful, just to name a few, but this one is the prettiest, in my opinion. This is 3 coats.

LORAC - Little Black Palette

LORAC is becoming one of my favorite makeup brands. I have tried a lot more of thier products lately. The little black palette is 4 eyeshadows and a mini eye primer.
The shadows are nice and smooth and blend well. Here are a couple swatches.
