The second week of the QVC Advent Calendar has some ups and downs as well, I’m still not regretting the purchase and I think it gave me an idea of some other brands to go for.

Week 2:

2017QVCAdventDay8
Stowaway Day to Night 5-piece Collection w/ Bag $49.50

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the best with a black pencil liner. Give me a gell or liquid and I’ll wing for days, but a pencil makes it a little harder for me. The concept of this liner, and collection, it a really nice one; they are the same product size as most other brands, but offered in a smaller easier to travel with package. I don’t travel all that much, but a liner I can put in a bag and add more to later or use to touch up does pique my interest. The liner itself is creamy and a nice deep black, not too bad for such a tiny product!

Tl;dr Works-yes, purchasing full size-I don’t love pencils, so probably not

Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid $29

Ok, ok, ok….so this item is the best thing that’s happened to my oily skin in a long time! I’ve had issues with the pores on my forehead becoming clogged and then getting those little bumps, they aren’t acne but they look similar. I’ve noticed that the more often I fall asleep and forget to wash my makeup off or just don’t do a super job getting it all off I have those bumps the next day. This product gets rid of them. Now I’m not saying all your skin woes will be gone overnight, but this will help in correcting them and setting your skin in the right direction. Using this item is a little tricky though; I put it on at night and just leave it on and then wash my face in the morning. I know they mention you can wear it under makeup, but that defeats the purpose in my opinion.


Tl;dr Works-yes, beautifully. purchasing full size- I have like 3 sample sizes since a little goes a long way, but yes I would buy it in a heartbeat.

Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer Full Coverage Concealer $28

I’m not a fully-grown beauty blogger yet; I don’t know exactly how to apply concealer but I feel like I have a pretty good idea on how to make it work. I couldn’t get this to work for me. The texture was a little sticky, and I think that might work for the undereye area, but my color was too dark. I know this might sound a little off as well, but I find most foundations I use offer enough coverage for me to not need additional products. The shade range is not the greatest, at least on QVC, so perhaps that might make it easier when deciding to spend the money here or on another concealer of the same price…


Tl;dr Works-yes…as long as you can find your shade, purchasing full size-no, a little too sticky for all over and the color I got was too dark for just under my eyes.

Algenist POWER 360 Eye Serum $70

Why QVC?? Why give me samples of products I can’t afford?! I mean I know it’s because it’s expensive so of course I’d want a sample to make sure it works, but come on! This has a nice gel texture and sinks in effortlessly. I’ve rotated the usage of it so I don’t see an immediate change; I might also not be the prime demographic at 31 years old.


Tl;dr Works-I’d say yes, purchasing full size-no, it’s expensive and I have similar items that do an equally good job.

Peter Thomas Roth Meet Your Mask Kit with Mask Tasker Tool
$25

I love me a good mask. I usually have about 5-6 samples rotating thanks to Birchbox and Target. This one is a nice staple to have. I have oily skin and this one doesn’t irritate it or cause any weird things to happen. I’ve linked the sample pack, which is a nice price but they sell the full sizes of all of them.


Tl;dr Works-yes, purchasing full size-maybe not full, but this sample pack, yes.

2017QVCAdventDay13
Kopari Coconut Melt, 7 oz $38

When are we going to admit that coconut oil is not the end all be all God send? This package legit says 100% pure coconut oil…really? Ok I know that what I get in the grocery store may not be as ‘pure’ or acquired in the same fashion, but there are health food stores that sell oil labeled the same way that doesn’t cost $38. This container has been sitting on my desk this week and it’s already in pure liquid form since the melting point is so low. I can’t use this oil on my body, it just takes too long to sink in. A light oil like almost or avocado works similarly.


Tl;dr Works-?, purchasing full size-I think I have coconut oil in my cabinet…

Obliphica Seaberry Hair Mask 2.54 oz $14

Remember earlier when I said I loved me some masks? Well hair ones are no different! I’m still working on my hair journey and trying to pinpoint what my type is but I think I have a decent picture of it. My hair is oily at the roots at day 3, and dry at the ends. I have thick wavy hair that tangles easily. This particular offering is meant for thinner hair, but I can still see the effects on my thicker hair. The scent was nice, like a bright berry scent, and it did get through all of my hair. After the shower my hair was softer and didn’t tangle as easily. They sell this is larger pots as well as this smaller size. They do offer the purple one, and that’s meant for my hair type.


Tl;dr Works-nicely, purchasing full size-maybe, I’d buy the one for medium hair though

There are 2 more weeks to come so keep an eye out.
