New Beauty Box Value Sets at QVC and Net-A-Porter

There are some new beauty boxes (value sets) that I thought some of you might find interesting, so here's a quick round-up:

The Shawn's Favorites 7-Piece Collection is $29.50 + $3 shipping at QVC. This set contains:
  • .23fl oz Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream (deluxe)
  • .25 fl oz Dr. Gross Ferulic Acid+Retinol Brightening Solution (deluxe)
  • .0025 oz IT Cosmetics Brow Power (deluxe)
  • 0.27 fl oz Julep Freedom Polymer Topcoat (FULL SIZE)
  • 3.5 oz Nick Chavez Starlet Shine Spray (FULL SIZE)
  • 0.375 fl oz Philosophy When Hope is Not Enough Serum (deluxe)
  • 0.06 fl oz Doll 10 Nude Lip Gloss (deluxe)

The Julep Freedom Top Coat in this set is full-size and retails for $18 on the Julep site. The Nick Chavez Starlet Shine Spray is full-size and retails for $19 on the Nick Chavez site.

The QVC Beauty 6-Piece Discover Kit is $23 + $3 shipping. This set contains:
  • 2.0 fl oz WEN Cleansing Conditioner in Bamboo Green Tea or Mandarin Italian Fig (packet)
  • 1.0 fl oz Molton Brown Body Wash in Orange & Bergamot or Suma Ginseng (deluxe)
  • 0.85-fl oz Vita Liberata pHenomenal Medium Tan Mousse with mitt (deluxe)
  • 0.09-fl oz Smileactives Easy-Click Whitening Pen in Vanilla Mint (full-size?)
  • 0.13-fl oz LashFood Conditioning Collagen Lash Primer (deluxe)
  • 0.169-oz IT Cosmetics Superhero Stretch Mascara (deluxe)

I want to point out that the Smileactives Easy-Click Pen in Vanilla Mint appears to be a new product, and I THINK this is full-size. The original twist-up pen in Vanilla Mint retails for $29 and that pen is 0.11 oz. So this one contains a little less product, but I think that may be due to the new delivery system? Again, I think this is full-size but I can't find any Easy-Click single pen listings on Google to confirm, aside from this one on Amazon but I'm not sure that listing is for the full-size and if that's the correct suggested retail price.

Now this set retails for well above the price of beauty boxes that I usually blog about here, but I wanted to bring it to your attention just in case you've been wanting to try any of these products.

The Net-A-Porter Beauty: The Travel Kit retails for $55 + free 3-day shipping on all US orders (Net-A-Porter also ships internationally, but not for free). This set contains:
  • Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist 0.5 fl.oz. (deluxe)
  • Mio Clean Slate Wipes (set of 2 wipes)
  • Leonor Greyl Nourishing Shampoo 1.7 oz. (deluxe)
  • Deborah Lippmann Cuticle Oil 0.5 fl.oz. (FULL SIZE)
  • Lipstick Queen Invisible Lip Liner 0.01 oz. (FULL SIZE)
  • Hourglass Icon Liquid Lipstick 0.03 oz. (deluxe)
  • Erno Laszlo White Marble Radiance Emulsion 0.17 fl.oz. (deluxe)
  • Erno Laszlo Treatment Bar 0.6 oz. (deluxe)
  • Chantecaille Bio Lifting Cream+ 0.34 fl.oz. (deluxe)
  • LashFood Conditioning Drama Mascara 0.27 fl.oz. (FULL SIZE)
  • Roloxin™ Lift's Revitalizing Facial Treatment wipes 2 x 0.12 oz.
  • Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask 1.7 oz. (deluxe)

The Deborah Lippmann Cuticle Oil is full-size and retails for $20 on the Deborah Lippmann site and at Sephora. The Lipstick Queen Invisible Lip Liner is full-size and retails for $18 at Ulta. The Lash Food Conditioning Drama Mascara is full-size and retails for $20 at Sephora. So just these three items add up to $58. Also, I want to point out that the full-size jar of Chantecaille Bio Lifting Cream+ retails for $342 at Saks (1.7 oz.). You're getting a 0.34 jar in this set, which is a nice way to try a moisturizer that you may not otherwise purchase due to cost (in my case, make that "never" purchase due to cost!). Same thing with the Christophe Robin Mask. The full-size version retails for $71 at Sephora (8.33 oz) and you're getting a deluxe 1.7 oz. jar in this set.

PS: I have never personally ordered from Net-A-Porter, but I know many of people who have, including Mr. G. He purchased a perfume for me for my birthday last December from Net-A-Porter and was super happy with the process and how quickly it arrived. In fact, he kept bragging that he was able to get the hard-to-find perfume that I wanted with free shipping without even having to consult me first. Ha! Oh, and since I'm going off on a tangent here, if you're curious, he got me Bella Freud 1970. which I had been coveting. And it's absolutely lovely, by the way. Very sentimental to me (that's the year I was born). End tangent.

Hope that helps!


  1. I bought shoes several years ago from Net a Porter and I love them and had no problems with the site!

    1. Yay! So glad to hear that, R. Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. I got excited for a brief second because I thought a Mally eyeshadow stick was in the first set. Thats how I discovered those and I love them, they last for hours and hours on my lids. I just ordered the value set and they are NOT the same, those are made in China, whereas the first and only one I got was made in Italy. I notice that the single ones you buy for 25.00 are Italy, the sets are china and they are NOT THE SAME.

  3. After getting used to my Walmart and Target boxes, I just can't justify anything over $10! It's nice that other are getting on board. though.

  4. That Net-a-porter box sure is tempting! If only I had the extra $55 for it. Oh well, thanks for sharing, anyway, G. I think that one particularly (of these 3) would make an excellent gift -- oh, and Mother's Day is coming up! Thanks as always for your information and impeccable detail. :) My champagne taste and I will admire from afar, for now. ;)
