New Beauty 9-Piece Test Tube with Magazine
my 15 year old took over half then items. she and i can't wait for next shippment. i will be order 2 this time.
Great Little Surprise
Very high quality magazine and its exciting to get the test tube full of surprises. Most programs like this barely gives you sample sizes, with the Test Tube, you get most full size products.
So glad I bought this
So this was my first qvc test tube and I loved it! A lot of people complained but I really don't understand. 30 for over 100 in product? What's not to love!? I am 21 year old so I took advantage of the eye cream, you can never start anti aging products to soon ladies!! My fave was te tarte. I liked the julep polish as well, I am subscribed to them so I knew in advanced how their polished are. Oh and the magazine was huge and informative. Thanks qvc!
I LOVE IT! People if you count up what you are getting. You are receiving a great Magazine. Plus 3 full size products. Yes I wasn't to pleased with the color of the nail polish. But you have to remember that they are doing these for all ages. So they have to put products in for the young members as will for the older ones. I do wish that they would stop putting it so many of Mally lipgloss products maybe put in her lipstick. I would like to see things like sample of Mally primers. It cometics items like the lipsticks. Most of the skin product that hasn't never been in a test tube. It would be great if we all could do type of survey what type of items that we all would like to try. I guess we all could email the the place where the test tube & Magazine come from and see it we all could. Maybe could try to email QVC customer service about it for the ones that would like some changes made.. But you know it doesn't matter what is in the Test Tube every one isn't going to be happy. So I have decide as long as I like the Magazine & enjoy some of the products. I will just keep on getting them. I love to give some of the items I can't use to family members.. They do add up to make great Easter basket items or to put in to stocking for Christmas. Sometime I just in up getting the items to people that just need them.. So just be happy people life is just to short..
After reading some of the reviews, it seems some people are getting different colors etc! I thought everyone received the same in their tubes.... I have been receiving the tube since they started the auto-delivery a few years ago! I also enjoy most of the products, and feel like it's something special just for me, but don't like receiving some of the same items so close together. It would be nice if we had the option, as someone mentioned, to be notified before hand what will be in the next tube, and then decide if we wanted to receive it, but still continue to be on auto-delivery!
Used and missing items
I began to look to see what is going to be in the next test tube, but only found the last one I got in January. I started to read the reviews and discovered that my tube not only had the tarte eyeliner missing its box and sharpener and used already, but missing the foil package with the soy cleanser. I never knew it was missing the cleanser, but another item, the eye cream, was partially used too. QVC took care of the eyeliner but I never knew the other items were used or missing when I called. When I relaized what had happened it was much later. After reading the reviews, I decided to cancel this subscription. I have also had other issues with another product not getting back to QVC, and am a little leery of ordering now.
Disappointed with some of the contents
I agree with some of the others; a foil packet really shouldn't be considered as one of the 9 samples! Also, I didn't care for the blue nail polish either. We just got the exact same type of Mally High Shine Liquid Lip Color not too long ago; I realize it's a different color but it's basically the same. Last time it was Mally's Look which is sort of pinkish nude and this is Mally's Baby which is peachy pink with shimmer. I was also dissappointed to get yet another Bliss product. Although I'm excited to try the Nick Chavez Conditioner but it would be nice to try the shampoo with the conditioner to see how they might work well together as my shampoo might not work as well with this product. I'm also interested in the Tarte eyeliner and the Algenist Eye Balm although I do wish it was the Algenist Firming Eye Gel as my concern is my drooping eye lids but I do realize that's my problem and not a majority of your customers!! LOL!!! But a gal can wish for stuff in the Test Tube can't she?!?!? LOL!! Oh and Ole Henrikson has and eye firming gel too! LOL!! But overall I enjoy getting the Test Tubes-usually the items I don't like or can't use I give to my mom so it works out pretty well for us. I'd like to try some different lipsticks, and mascaras maybe?
a packet sample????
Now I understand why there was no picture on the fresh item. You can not count a store sample packet as an item in a 9 pc test tube...very misleading. I am also a woman of color who feels that the samples are starting to lean to only one race. Please revamp this idea ASAP!!!
The products in the tube should be universal products that can be used by everyone! I am an African American woman and I do not want to spend my hard earned money on example: tanning products!!! Also, the products included keep getting smaller to include packets now as one of the beauty products. This tube started out as a good idea that has slowly gone bad!
Good and Bad
This is my first Test Tube and I was so excited to get it. I loved everything in the tube but was a little disappointed with the foil packet and my Tarte eyeliner. The eyeliner had no cover so it was dried out so I'm not able to use it even if I were to sharpen it, because it would just dry out again. I contacted QVC and they handled the situation very well and they responded quickly. I wish the conditioner had come with the matching shampoo but not much we could do about that. I LOVE the Mally lipgloss gorgeous color and it smelled and tasted great. I also like the Julep nail polish I got a very pretty pastel purple perfect for spring. I put it on right away and it goes on great and seems to last a while if you keep it up. Overall I was happy but there were a few things I would like to see changed and I'm disappointed I couldn't try the eyeliner I think I would have loved it. I will definitely be ordering the next box.
Skip This Test Tube
I agree with the concerns expressed by the other members. I received the blue nail polish not a color I would wear and my daughters did not want it as well. I am disappointed at the size of the samples one of the "9" is only a small foil pack. I have been on auto ship since the start, but if these are the new samples sizes at a cost of 36.43(S&H) it is no longer a deal to try new products. I will see if QVC listens to their viewers and improves the Test Tube, if not I will cancel auto ship following the next shipment.
I wanted to love this polish, but I can't. It chipped in less than 24 hours. I love the colors, but haven't decided if i am sending it back or not. If I keep it, it will be because of the beautiful shades and it drys very fast. I will continute to buy what is works best for me. OPI
