Finally, we come to the CHI Smart Volumizing Styling Iron and Sarah Potempa Beachwaver Rotating Curling Iron part of our Best Hair Tools test drive for the QVC Customer's Choice Beauty Awards. Voting ends tonight so if you're a fan of any of the products we've covered today, show the brands some love and vote. The winners will be revealed online throughout the day on October 17 and on air during a special show from 9pm–Midnight ET. A lot of my favorites are nominated, are yours?
A styling iron is just an essential these days and CHI is one of the best brands on the market making flat irons, they are one of the originals. A CHI is iconic really, I remember a CHI styling iron being a tool that only stylists had because they were so expensive. Thankfully they are accessible to everyone thanks to a more affordable price tag… and the occasional Easy Pay offer on QVC. Then we have a new twist on the traditional curling iron, one that makes curling your hair less of a challenging task. I say this being one of those women who has always struggled with curling my hair and making it look GOOD. Now beach worthy waves are easier than ever.
Now lets talk blow dryers, specifically the T3 Featherweight 2 High Performance Hair Dryer and the Drybar Blowout In-a-Box Hair Dryer. These were the next set of tools QVC sent us for our Best Hair Tools category test drive.
Both of these drastically cut down dry time and left our hair looking less frizzy and healthier than your average blow dryer found in the aisles of your favorite drugstore. Granted, it comes with a much bigger price tag but we think the benefits and time saved in the morning make that cost totally justifiable… and absolutely worth it. Kayla and I tested both of these blow dryers and quickly came to realize why each one is nominated for a QVC Customer's Choice Beauty Award.
I am a sucker for Tarte’s QVC Today Special Value sets, I really am. Today QVC’s Today Special Value is Tarte’s What Has Your Makeup Done For You Lately set, #A225763 I’ve probably said this before but they always introduce something new in these sets and there’s always something else for me to obsess over. Right now? I’m loving that Tarte has given us yet another great brush and a new chunky lip pencil… I’m all about the lip pencils.
This set retails for $49.96 and introduces us to Tarte’s new Maracuja Miracle Foundation with Broad Spectrum SPF 15. It also has a few products that will remain exclusive to QVC until January 2013, we’ll get into that in a moment. Another thing about this set? If you sign up for auto-delivery, your November set will include Tarte’s bronzing powder and the February set will include the original setting powder.
QVC’s Black Friday Today’s Special Value is one you MUST have on your radar. QVC is introducing the Clarisonic Mia 2 Next Generation Sonic Cleansing System at a beyond amazing deal. They’ve taken the Clarisonic Mia we all know and love, and made it even better by adding another speed and a one-minute timer setting to help you customize it to your skin needs. To boot, they’re throwing in a 3 oz. Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser, charger, two brush heads (one being our favorite Deep Pore Cleansing) and a travel case. QVC is offering this for $124.92 (with free shipping + easy pay options) through end of day Black Friday, November 25.
There are ten color options, including so many fun animal prints in bright colors that I am having a difficult time choosing which to get. Seriously, this is THE purchase to make on Black Friday. Check it out here, where it’s already available for purchase!
