QVC: Tarte, It Cosmetics, Borghese

QVC offers a wide selection of quality skin care and beauty brands. They were generous enough to provide me with a few items for review for the readers at Handmade Reviews.

The tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Shadow Primer helps to make shadows pop. Colors show up much more vibrantly with this base underneath. I don't find that it contributes much to the longevity of eyeshadows, however. I never have a problem with my shadows creasing, so maybe this eye base's effects were lost on me. Though it does not challenge the high-end eyeshadow primers in terms of helping shadows last, but it does let shadows show their true color.

The it Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil is a long-wear eyebrow pencil is infused with brow-conditioning ingredients to create the look of beautiful, resilient brows that won’t budge or smudge. The pencils are designed to match all hair colors and covers gray. You can go from gentle strokes to firmer ones to lighten or darken the color. That said, I do not think this will work for true blonds.

Italian mud provides mineral nourishment and special absorbing action which rids skin of impurities.

The Borghese Fango Active Mud for Face and Body feels great on the face and leaves my skin feeling tightened and refined. The packaging has a lovely look and feel, but can be messy to deal with. Product tends to get stuck on the edge and and can ooze out when you close the lid. The metal snap lock for the lid can be a little annoying at first, but easy enough to get used to. It also comes packaged with a convenient sponge.
