QVC New Beauty Test Tube - January 2013 - Beauty Subscription Box Reviews

QVC New Beauty Test Tube is one of my favorite subscriptions – I wish it was monthly and not quarterly!

The Box: QVC New Beauty Test Tube

The Cost: $29.96 plus $6.47 shipping

The Products: New Beauty Magazine and deluxe and full size beauty samples.

*I signed up for the auto-ship version from QVC, but you can buy each test tube individually. (Past quarters are available too!)

The magazine also comes with a brochure detailing info on each product.

 

Verdict: The value of this box is over $100 and I will use every product – this is a fabulous box! Do you subscribe to New Beauty Test Tube (QVC or regular version)? What did you think of this quarter?

    2. I’m waiting for my reg. Test Tube to ship. Apparently, this is another company which has had shipping delays this month.

      I’ve received that same Mally pink lip gloss in 2 sub boxes in 2012. Neither have been used.. I hope it’s not shipped out again in the regular Test Tube, as I know at least one Mally lip gloss was from a 2012 TT shipment.

      IMO, the value is more in ” What is this worth to me?” rather than the MSRP. It took me many months to switch my thinking over to my personally perceived value, which is often higher than the suggested or calculated retail price. In so doing, I was able to add a few subscriptions which I personally value a great deal, and drop many which really didn’t matter to me at all.

      The Test Tube is always a nice and fun subscription to receive, with nice large-sized products. My personal preference is the reg. version, though. I do not like many of the brands pushed by QVC.

    3. Wow, that is quite the beauty haul for under $40 and all of those talked about products. I can see why this is a favorite of yours. I might have to sign up for this one, thanks :)
