It doesn’t feel like five minutes since I got super excited and ordered the first beauty box from QVC, and as soon as the teasers about their second box started rolling in, I knew it would be another box I would just have to have.
A few points about the Tili box as some details about the surface have emerged since the first box where I was unclear. The Tili box (Try It, Love It) is not a subscription and comes out every three months and will always be £20. They release the details and contents of the box prior to it’s release – so you know what’s inside whether you’re interested and whether you want to buy. The first box offered superb value and brands – and dare I say, this months is even better on both fronts… It even has more full sizes.
This month’s box was a gorgeous grey and pink colour scheme, which I love – although I was expecting to maybe see something like reds that would both fit in for the autumn months and also maybe feeling a bit Christmassy for anyone who may think of giving this as a gift.
The first item they teased this month had me excited, the Tarte Tartiest Mascara (Full Size £22.00), which I believe is their newest mascara release. I’m desperate to try more products out from Tarte and I’ll happily take a well-rated mascara, I’ve wanted to try Lights, Camera, Lashes since it’s launch a good 2-3 years ago!
Next up that had me excited is the Laura Gellar Spackle Tinted Bronze Primer (Full Size £22.00) – I already have the normal Spackle primer and love it, it’s currently my go-to at the moment. I may (haven’t decided yet), put this in my giveaway box, I have so many primers on the go that I’m trying to finish and I imagine this will just be a bronze version of a product that I already love.
Percy and Reed Hair Mousse (Full Size £12.00) I have a few Percy and Reed products and seem to get along with them quite well. I’m not a big hair mousse wearer but I don’t actually own any, so I may retry the idea, now my hair is long and heavy it needs all the help it can when wearing a curl
Pixi Silky Eye Pen (Mini Size -more than half, full size £9.00) I’ve rediscovered a few Pixi products from my collection recently and have been really impressed with what I’ve been re-trying. From the pictures online I thought this was going to be a charcoal or olive coloured liner, but it’s black, I’ve swatched this on my hand and it’s a lovely silky black gel pencil that once set has really locked into place on my hand.
Niod Multi Molecular Hyalauronic Complex Serum (Half Size Worth £17.50) I’ve not heard of this brand before, and it’s an exclusive range to QVC’s line up online. I really want to start getting into acids based products to target old scars on face to see if I can help fade them – but I need to educate which ones will do the job and also be good for oily skin. Either way I’m excited to have this and have a new brand to try.
OPI Polish (Full Size £10.00) I was kind of hoping from the pictures this might have been Russian Navy, as it’s one I’ve had on my list to get for years and low and behold it was. I’m already wearing this, so expect a review upcoming, but it was a perfect colour choice coming into Winter, when I love to wear navys.
Philosophy Amazing Grace Shampoo, Shower & Bath Gel (30ml sample – Worth £1.19). I’ve never actually tried anything from Philosophy, I’m not a bath gal and their shower/bath/shampoo that they’re known for is too pricey for me to splash my cash on over a body shop shower gel. This has gone straight in my shower and is already being put to use. I do like it, not sure I’ll ever like a shower gel enough to spend £20 on a full size though!
Caudalie Resveratrol Face Lifting Moisturiser (15ml Sample – Worth £12.00). Last but not least is a generous sized sample from Caudalie, I’ve had bits and bobs from Caudalie through the years, all from beauty boxes but apart from a hand cream (which I loved), the samples have not really been big enough to really gauge any thoughts on the products, so I’m happy to have a bigger sized sample to try.
Overall I’m really impressed with this box again this time, the quantity and size of products feel enough to keep me going for the three months between each box. Baring in mind the next box won’t now be out til January (I think I’m doing my calculations right!?) – this would make Christmas Present, or maybe a good one for secret santa too!
