Review Urban Decay Primer Potion Tube

Hello all this is my review on the Urban Decay Primer Potion in the tube. It is the professional size. I purchased this about 6-8 months ago when they came out with it. When I purchased it the smaller one was still in the container with the wand. SO here are my thoughts on this!
DONT WASTE YOUr MONEY! :oP It dried up way to quick and was a waste of money!
I hope this saves some of you also!

Review Ellen Lange Express Retexturizing Peel

When I was contacted by this company to try their product I was super excited. As always anything I can try that is a "peel" like item for at home I am all about it. I love to try them and compare them to the things I get done at a Medi Spa. So this peel was great and so easy to use. I also love that they empahsize realizing while the peel is processing.
There is a total of 10% Glycolic in the Peel Kit - 5% in the pads, %5 in the solution. The pH of the Glycolic Acid is 3.7-3.5.
So I hope you enjoy!

Review Milani Liqui'feye

Hello all-
So I was so excited when I found these liners since I love the original ones that need to be sharpened. But I found that the automatic ones are not as great- they don't turn up. I thought i had a bad one but both of mine are this way. So I posted my review on YT and many people said that you have to turn from the top not the bottom- that worked on one but not the other! :o( Anyway I wanted to let everyone else to know about this and to make their own decision after. I will say the pigmentation is not as good as the ones you sharpen. I hope this helps someone out- either rot figure out if there one is a bad one or if they just are not turning it correctly.

Cheers-Lisa

Review Guerlain Foundation

Hello all-
So one of my most requested reviews is for the Guerlain Parure Extreme Luminious Extreme Wear Foundation. It is the foundation I wore on my wedding day and it is by far one of my favorites. It can be pricey though and it has a sent to I just want to make people aware of that. It is probably close to the Estee Lauder Double Wear but doesn't feel heavy like the EL.
I purchase mine at Sephora for $57.
http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P225016&categoryId=C12214
I have to mix 2 colors #3 and #5.

Let me know if you have any questions and enjoy!

New Beauty Test Tube and QVC

So, I saw a video that Heidi (Jalepena2007 on YT) about the New Beauty Test Tube from QVC. Now I have seen this magazine and liked it but couldn't see paying $10 every 3 months for it. I had also heard about the test tube but I didn't know anyone who had received one. So when I watched her video I was intrigued to give it a try. Now there are two different ones- one from QVC that has products that they sell and one from New Beauty (NB) directly that has products that they feature in the magazine.
So I did some back and forth about which one to order and I actually ended up ordering both by mistake. I thought I canceled my order from NB, I had received a cancelation email. But I ended up receiving both in the mail and I am glad I did.
The main differences are the QVC one is more makeup based and the NB one is more skincare based. See my video below for exactly what is in them. The do both come with a copy of the magazine (which at $10 each time makes this seem like a better buy to me.) The NB one comes with a $20 gift card for spa look, but the trick is you have to spend $100 to get the $20 off. So be aware.
Each test tube is $29 before shipping- so it ends up around $38 every three months and it will auto deliver.
Do you get this? If so let me know some of your favorite products you have received or which you prefer QVC or NB!

Cheers-Lisa
