QVC Beauty TILI 7-Piece Collection Review
This box came with an info sheet listing the products included and their ingredients. I wish more information about the products themselves was included, as I found myself Googling almost all of them before using. That being said, having the ingredients at my fingertips is better than having no info sheet at all!
bareMinerals Vio-Lit Glow Primer, 1 oz – Estimated Value $26
I don’t know if this is a discontinued product line or a QVC exclusive, but I can’t find this for sale online anywhere that isn’t eBay or Poshmark. That is a shame, too, because I really liked it! This has a light violet tint to it that isn’t noticeable on the skin, but it does make the skin look more radiant. I used it under my loose powder foundation for light coverage, and I did feel my skin had a bit of a glow to it. For what it’s worth, full-size bareMinerals primers that are available for sale are 1 oz and most cost $26.
tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara, 0.13 oz – Estimated Value $9.75 (Buy the 0.16 oz version for $12)
This is Liz’s favorite mascara, and it’s a top one for me too. It provides curl, length, and volume without clumping, and I like that I can add multiple layers to get show-stopping lashes.
Here I am wearing the primer under my powder foundation, along with the tarte mascara!
ELEMIS Peptide⁴ Thousand Flower Mask, 0.5 oz – Retail Value $12
I love face masks so much that some of my Instagram followers call me the mask queen (I may or may not have a crown specifically for this reason). This mask from ELEMIS is actually in my top three all-time favorite masks, and I am happy to have more of it. Powerhouse ingredients include Nordic peat (rich in humic and fulvic acids), willow complex (black willow bark + the buds of white and violet willows), lactic acid, and Brazillian black clay. Every time I use this my skin is softer and brighter, and it has the perfect formula to not be too drying for dry skin. If you ever get the chance to try this mask, I strongly say go for it.
MineTan Super Dark Caramel Tanning Foam, 1.01 oz – Estimated Value $5.21 (Buy the full-size version for $34.95)
I am not big on self-tanners, so the fact that this is the “super dark” version made me pass this along to a friend who enjoys self-tanning. She liked that it didn’t smell bad, and you can customize your tan by leaving it on from 1-3 hours. I couldn’t find the Super Dark Caramel version online, so I linked to regular caramel.
Philosophy Purity Made Simple Moisturizer, 2 oz – Estimated Value $10.64 (Buy the full-size version for $25)
The Purity line from Philosophy has never been my favorite even though it is a favorite for many, but I really liked this moisturizer. I found it to be lightweight, gentle, and safe for sensitive skin, and I appreciate that the full-size version is affordable.
WEN Hope Eau de Parfum, 0.15 oz – Estimated Value $13.64 (Buy the 0.33 oz version for $30)
I wasn’t sure what to expect from a WEN perfume since I only really know them from their haircare line. Hope is a blend of honey, chamomile, coconut, vanilla, and nutmeg, and while I like all of those scents independently, this wasn’t my favorite fragrance.
WEN Strength Eau de Parfum, 0.15 oz – Estimated Value $13.64 (buy the 0.33 oz version for $30)
This perfume, on the other hand, I loved. Strength is a unisex blend of grapefruit, lavender, warm cedarwood, amber, and honey, and it has a good balance of warmth and zest that I appreciate.
beautyblender Sponge – Buy the original for $20
I honestly don’t know why these samples are made- you don’t get enough sponge to try and apply your makeup with, and there is a lot of plastic packaging that feels wasteful. I love my beautyblender, but if you’re considering trying them out just spring for the original rather than fussing with this sample.
The Verdict: This was another great box from QVC- other than the beautyblender none of the samples felt especially small, and I think the amount of product included in each sample is a good amount. Value-wise, I calculated a total value of $90.88 based on my estimated value for the primer, and I think that is a solid value for the cost of the box.

Value Breakdown: This box cost $23.50 ($20 + $3.50 shipping) and I calculated a total value of $90.88 for everything except the beautyblender. That means you’re paying approximately the following per sample:

- tarte: $2.52
- ELEMIS: $3.10
- Philosophy: $2.75
- WEN Hope: $3.53
- WEN Strength: $3.53
