Exclusively sold at QVC, these specially curated items are great additions to my stash, what with wearable shades, catchy faux gold packaging and laudable formula. Let’s start with my number one favorite, the powder blush in Bronze.
A great match for my warm medium skin tone, this blush can be worn as such, bronzer, or if you’re feeling inventive, as eyeshadow . It is a beautiful brick red brown shade with soft satin finish. It is packaged in a lightweight compact in gold and white combo. The mirror is a nifty addition, very handy for travel to say the least. If bronze isn’t your jam, delight yourself with five more shades here.
With slender wand and teeny-tiny bristles for precise application from roots to tip, the Insanely Gorgeous! mascara renders just the right volume and length to my otherwise lifeless slashes. I like the fact that it lifts lashes with natural-looking results.
Red and matte, New Yorker is a pinkish red shade which sits lightly on the lips. It quite drags on initial swipe but the pointed tip allows for clear-cut application along lip corners. It is encased in an ultra-lightweight plastic tube, again very handy for everyday travel and use. There are eight shades in total, ranging from nude to pink to red to berry.
Glistening and hydrating, Satin Lip Shine in Rose is a lovely nude pink lip gloss which renders an illusion of plumper lips. It’s minty and tingles for about a minute or two then settles lightly onto the lips sans feathering.
While Baby Bottom is a cute pastel rose pink shade, I find the formula runny, sheer and quite a struggle to apply. To achieve the opaqueness I desire, I had to coat my nails three times. There are 15 shades from the collection so I’m hoping the others have better if not stellar performance.
