Re: Why I'm Passing on IT TSV

Stay strong, aprilskies. When I feel weak, I only have to go check my stash. Is there something I am out of? Oh, my heavens, not for a long time. I do like to watch the applications, as they do spur me on to use what I have. Sometimes, I just forget how to use what is already on hand. Sometimes, I just want to buy something. I certainly don't need to spend $70 on additional items for the stash. Compact!!

Thanks, Beauty$junkie. I ordered twice and cancelled both times 5 mins later. Crazy. I really just want the brushes. Yes, you are right about checking what you have. It helped that the day before I organized my linen closet. Now I just have to remember to look in it once the buying urge hits or when I hear the sweet song of the siren. Thanks for the reminder. COMPACT!

Re: Why I'm Passing on IT TSV

I purchased it because I have been looking for a good finishing powder and I hope this one is it. I love the CC cream, I can wear it to the beach and get absolutely no sunburn. Even my good sunscreens don't perform that well. However, I note that the amount of CC cream you are getting in this new delivery compact system is significantly less than what is in the tube. I probably will not continue the auto-delivery, but I do want to try the new products.

Re: Why I'm Passing on IT TSV

I have no problem with the cost, I think it's great for the number or products.

But I don't like the color choices. I have the Celebration Foundation in Fair and it's too light. But the Light choice is too yellow. There just isn't a good color for me to choose from. She really needs to offer something for those of us that are light with pink/neutral toned skin

The lipstick looks pretty though.

#3 - Don't need it! Wink

I just can't get past the snail secretion either. I have her anti-aging foundation, and I love it. I ordered a few more of her things, but not the TSV. I ordered one of her eyeshadows with the brush, the pore vanishing powder and one of her eyebrow pots. I hope I like these, too. If not, I will send back. I'm not above paying the return shipping if the product is bad. Ordering items together does get the 1/2 price shipping on the additional products, so it kind of works out for me. I more often read a lot of the reviews before I order anything anymore.

On 1/19/2015 scatcat said: Just my 2 cents. I know a lot of you like/are ordering. First - the .47 oz CC cream in a stupid delivery system in shades no one can figure out. Second - no idea if I like the concealer color/consistency. Third- the lipstick color probably isn't for me. Fourth - I'm not a powder girl/dry skin, so would I use it?? Fifth - so for $70 I'd be buying a nice brush. I'm going to stay strong and shop my stash. Have a good week ladies.

My thoughts exactly---well said. Marketing these TSVs are all very calculated to make these sales & the profit margin.

Re: Why I'm Passing on IT TSV

I was watching briefly this morning and the vendor was applying the makeup to her face. Maybe it was just the camera, but it looked yellow on her. I bought another similar product from Tart and even after using moisturizer on my face first it made my skin look dry. I'll stick with the Clinique liquid base.

Re: Why I'm Passing on IT TSV

I'm also surprised about the compact delivery system. The tube with the pump seemed to be popular & had good reviews. But I think when they offered that extra large size, people stocked up & therefore, were set for awhile. So she comes out with this new gimmick, supposedly same product, in the hopes of enticing more purchases.

Re: Why I'm Passing on IT TSV

I am passing as well, too much money for what you get, high shipping, only 2 ez pays. I have no idea if the compact powder is all 1 color, or is different colors

Re: Why I'm Passing on IT TSV

I was shocked the foundation wasn't a bigger size.
