Total Beauty Collection for HSN Box



RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars

COST: $19.95 (shipping is included)

THE SKINNY: The new Total Beauty Collection for HSN Box had a few great goodies inside. And we are showing you what's inside the box before it even goes on sale!

My favorites are the Trish McEvoy Eye Base Essentials eyeshadow primer and Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. (I'll give you a brief review of each and tell you what else is in the box.)

Trish McEvoy Eye Base Essentials eyshadow primer goes on easy and has a pale base color. (I used "Bare.") It has done a great job of helping hold my eye color all day long and does not feel heavy or bother my contacts. The primer does a great job of concealing as well since the formula is a little thicker than some others I have tried. It comes in six shades and retails for $25, making this product alone is worth the price of the box.

Item No. 2 that I loved -- and also a great value in this box -- is Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara ($23). The mascara has an almost perfect little brush that catches every lash with ease and coats with a black mascara that looks great all day. It does not budge, smear or flake (seriously). The brush is where the magic happens; it is thicker on the ends so your outside lashes get a little extra attention.

So without even looking at everything else in this box (although you should), these two items are worth $48 and you will use them. I promise. This is definitely a box worth checking out. (We'll have reviews of the rest of the items over the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned!)

What else is inside? Here's what you'll find:

KEEP OR TOSS: Most of the products in this box are a definite keep.

CHECK IT OUT: You can find this box exclusively from Total Beauty Shops beginning Oct. 31 and it will be unveiled HSN on Nov. 13. But you should act fast, these boxes tend to sell out quickly.
