As a self proclaimed beauty junkie (surely there's therapy for this, no?), I'm super excited about all the beauty sample home delivery services so easily available. As i recently mentioned here, i am now a Julep Maven, (a member of the monthly nail polish delivery service). I'm also anxiously awaiting my FIRST Birch Box. I mean, seriously, I've been known to stalk the UPS truck around town (OK not really but you get the point)! So I'm here to tell you about the ultimate product sampling program, New Beauty's Test Tube! The way it works is, every three months (seasonally) you'll get a shipment of a variety of deluxe or full size samples enabling the member to sample/test out new products before investing in them. Brands range from Moroccan Oil (yay), Dr. Brandt, Mally, Skin Ceuticals and more! The membership costs $29.99 every three months. In addition to the products, you will receive an issue of New Beauty magazine detailing all the latest beauty essentials. If you prefer to read this issue digitally, you are also issued a special code enabling to read it on your ipad (score)! Lastly, you'll get several gift cards to use towards a purchase at Spalook.com. The wonderful thing about this particular service is that it comes with a folder that includes a detailed description of each sample. You'll also get periodic emails containing video tutorials on the products included in each tube. Overall, I'd say this is a great service. I'm looking forward to my Summer edition of Test Tube for sure! My favorite products from this shipment were the Moroccan Oil Frizz Control (Love MO products), the Mally evercolor shadow stick (Fun Fact: you have 30 seconds to blend, smooth and play with the color to get your desired look. If you were to not wash it off (yuck) it'd last up to FIVE days!!! What???), and the YBF eye liner in a rich plum hue (it's highly pigmented, a super fun color, long lasting, AND comes complete with a sharpener that's built right into the cap... i mean, what more could one ask for?? I'll admit, I'm still testing out all the skin care stuff and so far so good! I'll know more in a few days... these things take time you know! Anyway, if you're a beauty junkie like moi, then this is for YOU!
